I did a couple searches but didn't find much.

I have an assemblance of parts in boxes and after an inventory over the last week, I realized I had enough parts to maybe begin to build another bike. The fork I have is a circa 1997 63 mm Rock Shox Judy XC with 1" steer tube and I have a new 1/1/8" headset in it's packaging, so I would need some of those Problem Solver headset reducers, but that won't be a big deal. I'd like to make a list of frames that may work for me so I can keep my eyes out and maybe snatch up a deal if I see it. This is my criteria so far:

Steel (1st choice) or aluminum (2nd) frame, 19-21"
Susp. corrected for 63 mm fork
1/1/8" head tube

This will probably be a pseudo-vintage frankenbike (1x8 speed), but if it can be done cheaply, it might be fun and I'll have something usable out of all these parts.

Thanks!

... look for frames made from '95 to '98. there is a big chance to find one matching your specs.

check mtb-kataloge.de, to see if the frame of interest had been delivered witch suspension fork or not.

I personally like the greensih color, but they made a red and a grey if I am not mistaken

My first SS convert (BTW 32x16 fits the stays perfectly, no tensioner required)
