    Try the Azonic Steelhead for $215 or the Jamis Durango for $109 at JensonUSA. Surlys and Somas are good steel frames that are in the $400 range. There are probably lots more if you want to look at the no name house brands at places like Nashbar and Performance ect. taker easy dude.

    I heard the Azonic Steelhead is a great frame. I myself am thinking of building up a nice urban assualt/dirt jump hardtail. I'd try to find an Azonic Stealhead if I were you.

    I found a nice one, lemme get the link.

    If your cool with eBay

    It's only a 15" frame:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

    Then heres an XL frame:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

    Both under 240. I think the 15" frame is at $179 for Buy now.

    Check for a company called soul cycles. Good strong frames, building up a rep around USA and REALLY cheap.

    My friend is sponsored by them. It's a level 2 sponsorship though. So nothing special.

    Thats sponsorship is as good as simply being friends with the owners of the LBS.

    Isn't it a bit better. You get parts at cost + for example? I don't know...they are a little too far for me to bother being sponsored by them haha

    All you gotta do to be sponsered is fill out a form and fax or email it back to them. Woopie. I just filled out the form; And when they get a cyclocross frame out I'll be pimping it!
