    I would start at $1500 and wouldn't go over $1800 but that's just me.

    Just the frame? or a full bike?
    If just the frame offer $1,000......go as high as $1,500. Unless youreally want it....Ti is cool. but Carbon is cheaper. Think it through.

    Is this thing even the right size for you? Walk away, don't buy it. Discount is not good enough for no LBS to go back and complain about issues to.

    That's all bs. The important part about any frame is how it fits you. Of lessor importance is how it feels riding especially the stiffness and comfort. An especially stiff frame may not be so comfortable for you.

    It's hard buying just a frame without test riding. And often test rides are misleading becuause of wheels and other components.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    this is a funny thread.

    A. Titanium is cool; unless you care about weight and aerodynamics; then it's a fairly mediocre frame material. You're on a way better track with a carbon felt.

    B. Carbon is pretty much carbon. There are some exceptions, usually on the lower end, but the fit on Felt vs. Scott is very different.


    Personally, I've bought a felt but I wouldn't touch Scott with a 10 ft. pole.
