Help finding good deal on a frame?

I'm looking for a good price on a Kona Five-O frame. Most places are selling them for about $500 US. Can anyone find me this frame for about $300? Even less?

Yes, but then I'll have to charge you an extra $200 for finding it for $300.

Hilarious.

I meant more if someone had stumbled across something recently, rather than an active search.

For $429 RRP. You could definitely get one cheap 2nd hand also.

The frame looks pimp, but it looks like a dirt jumper. I still need that pedalling efficiency.

I have an account at BroForm, so if I'm getting a DJ, i would end up with Azonic.

Ahh well, nothing to do but keep looking. I'll have to keep an eye on eBay. Haha.

If you want a tough frame that pedals...I just got a good deal from jensonUSA on an '04 Komodo. It was built as a heavy duty trail bike frame, has XC'ish geo so it pedals like a mofo...but it's only 3.9lbs.

I can't report on the durability-over-time b/c I just built mine I sure do love it more than my dually though.

Oh yeah...and it's only $144
