just got myself one of those Manitou Kingpins for $100. Not high quality but for $100 bucks, who cares! anyway, I got as a part for a bike I plan on building. I already have a Kona Stuff, so I was thinking of a dual suspension. I don't wan't to spend alot of money on the frame. I'm probably gonna go used. I've seen used norco 4x4's for a decent price, would the Kingpins be okay on that frame? Want the bike for light to moderate freeriding. not a hardtail, I like the morphine but i want dual suspenion. I may also look into a used stinky. I want something size small. (i'm 5'6", 120 lbs). Any suggestions on frames to look for that are used and around $600 u.s. range? also would that 4x4 work?

I'm probably gonna look at a frame with 6" and lower because I live in Ontario Canada and there isn't any mountain around. I don't really want to be driving around a monster of a bike when I don't need to. that's why I was looking at the norco 4by. It'll be my first dual suspension bike. I already have a few parts for the bike. wheels- stock ditchwitch that come on "06 kona stuff. pedals- dmr v12. Forks- manitou stance kingpin.
