First off, thank you all for your responses. I can appriciate the criticism of the term "prosumer". In heindseight, it was a pretty silly way to phrase what I was trying to get across. If anyone is still curious about my intentions in using it, I was simply referring to the price range between mid-grade and professional. In other words, I'm willing to spend a good amount of money but, at the end of the day, I'm still just joy riding. I don't need anything that will win me a race, just the best I can buy for day to day use.
As far as my frame goes, I'm still keeping an eye out and doing some research but I put any purchases on hold. For now, I'm having the paint job on my old frame restored and I'm upgrading other parts. It is an extremely heavy frame though so I'm very excited to get something lighter in the future.
