- Can anyone recommend a decent steel hardtail frame for under 350 quid?
My previous bike died due to a crack in the frame and the manu has offered me a like-for-like, but they are not sus-corrected. I guess I will probably take the replacement and have to sell it and buy something which is sus-corrected. I have a 100mm travel RockShox – tapered. I’m kinda attached to my suspension now and reluctant to go back to rigid. I looked at Karate Monkeys, but they are spendy as. So far, I have found a Sonder Frontier frame for less than 300 quid, which seems to fit the spec, but not sure, its alu and I prefer steel. Any ideas?

Running HOPE hubs/wheelset, so I understand 135mm can be converted to 148mm (for the Sonder) easily enough. Fork is a 100mm tapered Rockshox Reba (or maybe the one above that, can’t remember, it was about 300 quid). Frame offered is a brand new Genesis Longitude, Medium 27.5+/29er. If it’s the orange frameset featured on their website, it will be hard to part with, as it looks rather lovely. That said, I’m quite attached to my Rockhsox too!Posted 1 month ago
