    Need frame recomendation

    I'm looking to build my first full suspension bike and would like recommendations on what frame to use. I will be riding mostly cross country and on the road and don't need a whole lot of travel, 80mm max in front.

    I really like Trek fuel frames but they are hard to come by on EBAY.
    When all else fails, read the directions.

    THe Jamis Dakar Is a real value, Worth taking a look at! If money isn't too tight look at the Santa cruz, rocky mountain or even Ellsworth

    What does your budget look like?
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I'm 6ft, 190 lbs and have 2 hardtails with 19 inch frames. They fit me well and are comfortable to ride.

    How much money are you willing to spend? Are you looking at $800 frames or $2,000 frames?

    Personally I love both my Turner Nitrous and my Ellsworth Truth and highly recommend either of them. However those may be out of your price range.

    I have a rocky mountain element, can't say enough about it, and its not overly heavy for the price.

    EDIT: just realised that it only came in 15"
