I think it is about time for another Frankenbike.
Here is the scoop. My #1 riding partner has fallen on hard times. They have cut his hours dramatically at work and he just found out that he will have to rebuild the engine in his truck. He has a newborn at home to make matters worse (will post pics of baby soon
). I'm sure this is a very common story these days but I have no shame since I may be forced to go without a riding buddy, at least for the last minute non-planned after work rides that keep me from getting getting over 200lbs again. Some of you in the know may ask, why he just doesn't borrow one of my 14 bikes? He is directly between a small and med frame (like 17") and has tried my bikes only to find out they are pretty big on him. He currently has a 16.5" frame that is for sale on here.
What I'm looking for is a hardtail frame hanging in someones garage just cause they can't see the point of tossing it. Very cheap hardtail or FS frame will be considered as well.No way I'm gonna specify a FS frame like we did with Krunnch as that was sort of a nightmare and is a lot to ask for someone who doesn't support the trails like Krunnch does. What I can promise is that he will join the Swamp club and take part in a little trail maintenance. I see it as a good way to attract someone to the club as well as clean out your overflowing parts bin. Kinda makes me sick cause within the last year or so I've sold two 17" hardtail frames.
If you see right through me as far as this being a totally self serving Frankenbike, I ask that you save your insults for PM's only. Don't blast me with posts as that hurts my feelings
