I want a new frame set.

I ride a Pure at the moment and like it, but I want something different. Was thinking either Aventon or Unknown. Any and all pros and cons. Also any words on Encore wheels?

What's your price range? Any preference for steel or aluminum? What kind of riding do you do? What ride characteristics do you like/dislike (stiffness, stability, comfort, weight, ect.)?

That is a nice deal even if I upgraded a bunch of stuff to what I would want it is still pretty cheap.

The Aventon Cordoba or Mataro will be your best bet then. The difference between a $200 dollar aluminum frame and a 400$ aluminum frame won't be noticeable, unless you're looking for a specific geometry.
