I was wonderin if someone out there could give me their opinion on the following. I figured that if I went with older, clearance frames, I could save a buttload of money. I'm 6'3, 195lbs, and I've been riding hard for a couple years now. Here's all the info I collected, (not much, just a lotta options). Any info, or other, better places to go for cheap sh*t? I'm on super-limited budget.

(not too much thought went into the frames)
