Hi all -

I was hit by a car last year and my frame and fork were pretty much toasted. I'd like to buy a new bike but really only care about the frame and the fork as I have all other parts (all SRAM X.7 drivetrain, Ringle stem/bar, sun rims/LX hubs, etc)... I'll be riding mostly light XC, packed trails, and possibly commuting to work (I have a 2nd set of rims/hubs with slicks).

Are there any bikes out there that have a solid frame and a good fork but crap components that I can tear off and replace?

Or even the best frame on an inexpensive bike (and I'll stick a rigid Kona Project 2 on it)?

Any feedback would be really appreciated.

Scott

If your sole intention is to scrap everything but the fork and frame, you'd be better to just buy the fork and frame themselves. Check out the online retailers for specials.

If you buy an inexpensive bike, you're gonna get an inexpensive frame/fork.

What's your budget?
