I know of a few out there, but I'm having trouble finding one that will work. My plan is to get this for my wife and just swap back and forth some parts from one of my other bikes. I need something that can handle a 120mm fork and disc brakes.

The frames falling into this price range that I have found are the sette razzo, performance xcl, and a motobecame from bike island. I think bike island is the only location that would have a 17-18 inch frame available. I'm also not sure if the extra 20mm of fork travel would be a problem as they all seem to list 100mm max.

Any other frame options out there?

On-one Inbred? I don't think they list geometry with a 120mm fork, but pretty sure I've seen them posted here in the forums.

Origin8 Scout? again, not sure of the 120mm fork.

Nothing designed for a 120mm fork in that price range. Owning a Origin 8 Scout I am sure the frame can take the extra leverage of a 120mm fork but I don't know how well it will ride. Any chance you can reduce the travel of that fork to 100mm?

Thanks for the info. Im gonna look into the scout and a few others. I saw that bike island has some motobecame frames for $350 w a recon which does not look like to bad of a deal.
