    Help me find a frame plz

    I have a few criteria. Cost isn't one of them.

    Frame must be

    1) 23.5-24.0" TT
    2) 69 deg HA
    3) 13.0" BB
    4) <16.75" CS
    5) 17-18" seat tube
    6) 4" travel
    7) cool looking

    All numbers +/-. Custom options welcomed. Basically looking for a stretched 4X bike for east coast XC rippage.

    Thanks in advance.

    This really cool dude that 66 likes to hang with could point you in the right direction. I think he knows alot about cross country riding, trials, (just insert whatever you like...he knows everything) and dog restraint training. 66 could hook you up with his number. Good luck.

    Yes, I'll give him your number and he'll set you straight.

    I'd say a Transition Double but the TT isn't quite that long and the seat tube is much shorter. Darn.

    That's where I'm at with the Rampant right now - just a little too small to be all-day trailable.

    Profail, the seven fails criterion #7 (weird huh)

    Smashy, I envisioned air but I'd consider coil. Too bad the Kona Howler is NLA - I bet I could make that work.

    66 and Hambone, you missed a couple more of those extremely insightful proclamations in the CMS parking lot Sunday.

    The B4X would almost work for you but the HA is too slack and the CS are too long.
