Try the Azonic Steelhead for $215 or the Jamis Durango for $109 at JensonUSA. Surlys and Somas are good steel frames that are in the $400 range. There are probably lots more if you want to look at the no name house brands at places like Nashbar and Performance ect. taker easy dude.

I heard the Azonic Steelhead is a great frame. I myself am thinking of building up a nice urban assualt/dirt jump hardtail. I'd try to find an Azonic Stealhead if I were you.

My friend is sponsored by them. It's a level 2 sponsorship though. So nothing special.
Thats awesome, about half the people who have heard of the company have the level 2 sponsorship.

I've heard of them and I don't have a sponsorship from them.

Thats sponsorship is as good as simply being friends with the owners of the LBS.

Isn't it a bit better. You get parts at cost + for example? I don't know...they are a little too far for me to bother being sponsored by them haha

Thanks for all the help.

The soul titan looks good and the pricetag does too, but im gonna wait to see if i change my mind because i always buy to early and get upset with what i get.
All you gotta do to be sponsered is fill out a form and fax or email it back to them. Woopie. ;) I just filled out the form; And when they get a cyclocross frame out I'll be pimping it!
