I've decided to get back into racing. Specifically, crit racing. I went to the local crit over the past weekend and got hooked all over again.
My main bike is carbon, but I want to build up a bike just for racing. I want to go with aluminum because of its ability to withstand the inevitable crashes that I know will happen.
I'm looking for a good, stiff aluminum frame. I would like to buy new if at all possible, just so I don't have to worry about the history of the frame. The problem is that most companies aren't making aluminum frames any more, and if they are, it's hard to get just the frame.
So, I'm looking for suggestions as to places to get a frame. I probably won't need custom sizes, and I don't care about custom paint.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
