    What's a good cheap 20-21" frame?

    I'm not going to be doing any hard trail riding, just bombing around town and campus.

    I bought a leader xc type frame and I can't fault it. Everything is great except for the paint which you can litterally scratch off with your fingernails. Its my beater so I am working on covering it with stickers.

    Everything I've just read indicated that leader makes VERY durable and good frames for cheap, and that the paint on them sucks ass.

    I might go with one.. lol

    I have a 21" Specialized Hardrock chromoly frame of late '90s vintage in the basement that I'd sell you for $25 plus the actual cost of shipping it. It has 4 or five little rust blisters up through the paint in the top tube (spent too much time in a bike rack in Bellingham, WA) but the rest of the paint is pretty good.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Used early 90's steel MTB's are hard to beat for what you describe.

    Yeah, the guys at ToyotaPrius.com said the Prius was a great car as well.
