Cheap Aluminum Gravel Frames

Hello, i was searching the web and found out that there really aren't many options for cheap aluminum gravel frames. I was wondering if someone knows any dealers or shops where i could get a frame for around 200-400 USD. It would be awesome if it had disc mounts, inner cables and thru axles. I'm also thinking of starting bikepacking as i already have all the parts for a bike except the frame.

The Poseidon X is in that range when it's in stock.

"Fork: Full Carbon fork – Tapered 1 1/8 – 1 1/2" Reading the ad... sounded like steer is plastic/carbon too.

I do not ride plastic/carbon. Each makes their own choice.. but this flavor on a low end frame gives pause. Do consider you choice in that regard.

Wow, that's quite a "read between the lines" of a single sentence.

No there aren't typically new gravel frames at that price because its 2020 and things cost money. Sometimes a heavily discounted frame will pop up in limited sizing, but right now most everything is already low on inventory and demand is on the higher side.

...buy used. Even tjose prices are inflated right now, but uts possible.

You might be able to find something at that low price point at bikeisland.com.
