    Full suspension 4-5" frame for 800-900ish dlls

    Hello everyone,
    I believe the topic pretty much explains for itself, I am looking to build a new full suspension bike, mostly XC bike, I am very happy with my hardtail but I have a back injury and it hurts after several hours when racing mtb marathons or riding in general 2+ hrs. I am not buying a complete bike since I will have the money as the months come by and I want to experience the idea of entirely building the bike. I am very clear about the wheels I want, the kind of fork I will be looking for and so forth, however, I don't seem to find a mid level full suspension frame for itself that meets my budget. Only one so far is a Giant Trance that sells at Colorado cyclist but they say they only have it in store due to Giant's policy. The frame for what I see would suit perfectly to my needs but I live by the Tucson, Az, area and well, Colorado Cyclist store is somewhat far from home. Any idea what/where should I look out for?

    Thanks!

    Wow! it is indeed a great deal! trying to make up the numbers right now. Any idea why when added to cart it raises from 899 to 999, am I doing something incorrectly?

    just call CC, they will sort you out. I know a guy with an ASR-5C and he loves it. I've noticed for the past 2 years that 26" bikes get ridiculously cheap when they go on clearance... usually much deeper discounts than 29ers.
