    Production, or Custom?

    So I'm gonna get a new bike shortly after I start working in June.

    I can't find any production frames meeting my desires, just wondering if I'm missing something, or if I'm gonna have to go custom, or make compromises.

    I want:

    29er SS
    Steel Frame (pref 853 or OX)
    Paragon Sliders

    I found Gunnar, but the frame for a ruffian is $1150 list. I don't mind spending money on my dream bike, but I dont' want to spend $3000.

    Any suggestions?

    It looks like you just kept the frame. Why not just buy the frame and build it up?

    They're not Paragons sliders, and it's not OX or 853 but the new El Mariachi fits the bill.

    See this thread...
