- Suggestions for a 'special' hardtail frame… maybe custom?
For my 30th birthday I’m looking at getting a nice hardtail frame, but I’m looking for something ‘a bit special’.
I’m drawn towards getting a custom Curtis XC Reynolds built exactly how I’d like, but I’m trying to keep an open mind before blowing such a large amount of cash. I’d like to get something a bit different from the norm, which fulfils the following…
Suitable for 100 – 130mm forks
Not too slack geometry – will possibly be raced
Currently open minded about the material its made from (but do like my current Inbred)
Plenty of chainstay clearance (Don’t want to blow lots on a frame to have it destroyed by chainsuck)
Something I don’t see on the trails every week…
Up to £900
Any suggestions?Posted 9 years ago
Kelvin = If you're going to spend £900 on a frame, then splashing out on new steel deore chainrings once a year to avoid chainsuck seems good value = ;87)
Already do that, and plan to continue to do so. More chainstay clearance can only be a good thing though. I only ever run up to 2.1" tyres, so don't need huge tyre clearance.
That Enigma Ti frame seems pretty well priced when you compare it to a Cotic Soda etc.
I love the look of the Whyte hardtails, but the framesets don't seem to be available seperately…Posted 9 years ago
