I am trying to build a 29er HT using the hammerschmidt crankset. Does anybody know of a frame to compare/compete with the banshee paradox. The frame has to have iscg tabs to work with the hammerschmidt. Thanks for the help

There is only one Paradox. Lynskey might could make up something for a nominal fee. And yes, might could is something you are likely to here in Tennessee :D

Or you could buy a Canfield nimble (for the same price as a Paradox) and send it off to a custom builder to get an ISCG05 installed for another $100-200 plus repaint :eek:ut:

Why are you trying to avoid the Paradox?

Easy retrofit.

The ISCG can be installed pretty easily on any frame, by any competent framebuilder. It will of course, ruin a little bit of the paint around the BB shell, but since that's behind the crank anyway, just rattlecan it and go ride.

I imagine someone (best to find a local builder to save the shipping) would do it for $50-100.

the Paradox is new as of late 2009 so the company must still be alive:p They had been discussing this frame a lot on their blog before that

Are you from TN? Where from?

Sorry for the derail.
