yeah look for 20.75 - 21" top tube, full chomoly frame, and as many sealed bearings as you can get for the price. Don't take any of that "Full chromoly main frame garbage" thats only the front triangle.

Fit, Kink, WTP, DK, Stolen. Almost every company puts out a decent high end complete. Just watch the specs. You want a Full chromoly frame fork and bars. preferably a cassette rear wheel and as many sealed bearings as you can get for the money you are willing to spend.
