Chromag steel frame should be solid choice. Double check the sizing. I'm 5-9 and M/L Surface 29er runs tad big for me. Also, check out Jones for ideas:Will the Chromag Stylus frame work with a BBSHD ebike motor?

It really is a do everything trail bike that’s incredibly versatile and ready for anything from all day trail riding to big burly lines. It’s built to climb, descend, jump and do it with...chromagbikes.com
I have the 68mm-73mm version of the motor. I have never built a bike before so it'll be a whole process but making sure the frame will even work is pretty important. I somehow just now only discovered these guys at Chromag, which is perfect since I live in Canada and I would really like a steel bike for my BBSHD. I thought about cheaping out on a more affordable bike (re:Giant Talon) but that seems wrong to do with the BBSHD.
And I suppose that since I'm a newbie, I should ask - is the Chromag Stylus a good pairing for the BBSHD?
