I currently have a GT Avalanche, but the frame is a little small for me. I have been looking for a new frame and came across Voodoo Cycles. I do not have any experience with them, does anyone here? I mainly use my bike for XC and trail riding. I am a Clyde and need something that will handle my weight (290lbs). I plan to move as many components from my current bike to the new frame. I have considered other frames like the Cove Handjob, another GT frame, Gary Fisher HKEK and if I could find an Ellsworth SUB 22 or Enlightenment... The Ellsworth frames are probably outside my budget. I could probably go as high as $700 and prefer a hardtail.
Please suggest other frames I have overlooked.
