Help me find a fs frame

Hi, im looking right now for a full suspension frame. It will be used for XC and Agressive XC. I was hoping for adjustable travel in the rear like 3-4-5 and lockout if the design isnt an FSR or something that bobs too much. I have looked for FSRs for a while and cant seem to find something within my price range or size. Recently i thought of getting a cheaper frame such as a Schwinn Rocket and stick a FOx Vanilla with lockout on it. This would be relativley cheaper than an FSR however the deisgn would not be as good and therefore the need for lockout. Any suggestions would be helpful

How cheap are you looking to go? FSRs start a little over $1k.

They are a little bit pricey but not that bad. My lbs had a 30 for 3300cnd. Spec wise it looks very similar to the Kona Kikapu Deluxe whish retails for 3K cdn.
