Good trail/xc full suspension frame, recommendations

I used to ride a lot when I lived in Virginia. But I moved to FL to attend college. I'm moving back to VA later this year and I'm really looking forward to riding again.

I currently have a 98-99 GT Avalanche. But I think I want to get a trail/xc full suspension frame and swap over my components from the Avalanche.

What recommendations you guys have? Thanks.

how much $$ do you have to spend? That's probably going to dictate your frame. Also, some of those components on your older bike may not transfer to a newer high-tech xc bike. Cannondale(Rush), Gary Fisher(Hi-Fi), Trek(fuel), and Kona(Kikapu or Dawg) are good examples of nice XC bikes. There are many other nice brands also. good luck

I should have my new Titus Moto Lite up and running in a week or so - I'll let you know then.
