Does anyone know of a local Vancouver or Bellingham area shop clearing out an extra-small, aluminum XC hardtail frame? I bought a full build kit online from a Singapore based distributor, just need a frame now. My wife's measurements are pretty typical for a 5'0" woman, we know what size of frame she needs, and the riding style (this bike will be 90% of the time on pavement, so definitely a XC hardtail and not full squish or anything towards the all-mountain end of the spectrum). Looking for a frame to match a 100mm air fork for axle to headset front end stack height. It would be nice if the frame came with a headset and seatpost collar.
