    Should I wait to find a Highline?

    I cracked the frame on my Switch this weekend so now I am looking for a Highline. All I really need is the frame / seatpost/ fr. der..

    Because the bike is getting rare, I cant find a large...Should I just buy something else?
    thx,
    BM

    If you are looking for a Highline but cant find one take a look at a Cove STD. They are very close on the spec sheet. Cove puts out a good product and they can be found used too.

    How tall are you? The pre-2008 mediums were close in size to the post-2008 large frames IMO.

    The 06 Medium had a 23" TT which is what I'm riding at 5"11" Perfect for the tight and twisty DH throw the bike around stuff but not so good for pedaling or trail riding for me. Beyond that I highly recommend it.
