Can I buy a MTB FS frame for $500-$600?

I am looking to build a FS MTB and I was wondering if I could buy a FS frame for $500-$600...I presently have a Giant Rincon that is a 2000 model and a Trek 6000 that is a 1998 model...My wife rides the Trek and I would like to have a FS one for myself...If anyone could point me into the right direction I would appreciate it...Thanks.

Check the following link out. I have never ridden a Weyless, but I have read some decent reviews of them. You might sniff around mtreview.com and see if you can find any reviews of their frames. Obviously they are proably made by a better known builder and then given the "Weyless" stickers. They look o.k. to me. I have seen some FS bikes now that are sub-$1000 fully built up, so I am sure you can find a good frame and shock for that.

There are also several vendors selling what you want on eBay.

If I recall correctly, Besides the Weyless, Supergo also has some leftover GT I drive frames from 2001 for $399. not a bad deal at all
