Well for a fork i would get an oddysey fork, i would get the director which is $150 or you could get like a race/dirt/freestyle one for cheaper. For a frame it's hard to get one for $150 to $200 look at dans comp.

I wouldn't reccomend getting it. It's a stock bike frame.
http://www.danscomp.com/353241.php?cat=PARTS Get the oddysey dirt fork which i just put the link down for in one of the color's that's not black and it is $85 so you will have $215 for a frame.
Here are some frames i would reccomend for that price.
http://www.danscomp.com/211317.php?cat=FRAMESFSD Sputnic Satelight V2A
http://www.danscomp.com/211184.php?cat=FRAMESFSD Mutiny Sinister
http://www.danscomp.com/211314.php?cat=FRAMESFSD Proper Proclaimer
I would go with the Sputnic out of all those. I hope this helps.

Bowhunter. I don't think there is any frame by DK called a general alliance. I bet you mean General Lee.

You got the frame for $30. i've seen complete general lee's for $50 on craigslist. What was the frame you had before? Oh a redline. I guess that's better than a redline.
