I am thinking about a frame.

I am sick of my frame. I have a kink transition and it's too big, it's 20.75 or 21 and the backend is very high.
I would like a frame with a lower backend and in the weight range of 4-5 pounds. Any suggestions. Also i want 20.5. Thanks

The main point i want a new frame is because of the back end. That back end is the exact same size almost.

Completes are awesome and single frames and parts are stupid and a waste of time.
