    Production 26" Light Alloy SS disc frame

    Anyone building one? Alas, Salsa's Scandium Juan Solo has been put out to pasture. And, no, I don't want a 29-er or a the process of converting a geared frame with a tensioner, ENO or bolt-on EBB.

    what's light? I've got my eye on the soma 415. Tange prestige, 4.5lbs is pretty good for steel.

    Those are good suggestions....Didn't think of those 2. Man, Voodoo needs to do something about the "bike shots" on their website. Stems jacked way up in the air with the saddles slammed don't really represent the bikes well - IMO.

    Finger 51 - 3~3.5 lbs frame weight, ideally.

    I've just built up a Soul Cycles Hooligan and can honestly say it's both light and just as comfortable as my old Dekerf Implant, great price too!

    Nice price on that one and the option to run SS or Geared. Listed as 3.5lbs.

    The Bokor is about 3.5lbs. I have one and was very happy on it until I discovered proper 29ers (as opposed to the early land barges with big wheels).

    I weighed the frame when I bought it to put it in my build up notes. I can't find them just now, but it was a light frame.

    It is a nice handling bike I used to use for racing.

    Custom Spot. it will run you about $1250 for just the frame. It's steel but they are just as stiff as an aluminum frames. The best part, made in the U.S.A.

    Is an excellent suggestion - I had no idea they were offering it in a 26" - Thanks for the suggestion.....I think its a go.

    The guy that got me into SS rides an el toro. Nice bike, classic looks and geometry. Tough frame too, this guy is a power rider (32/12, WTF?) and BOMBS down trails.

    It can be somewhat harsh but you're buying an AL 26er so I assume you want a racey type anyway. Its plenty stiff.

    The Motobecane Outcast 26er?
    $175 for a nice SS specific aluminum frame.

    It's sweet- especially for the price (I have one), but it's not particularly light. My 19" frame weighs 4.88 lbs.
