FRAME ONLY for people who think they're getting the whole bike - still a great deal!

13" is tiny.. is this a 26" wheel frame?

fantastic frame for the money, got to be a bargain for someone!

If you get this frame then buy one of the £40-£50 bike shaped peices of metel people always complain about on here you can you can swap the parts over and have a bike that looks good and is truly specialized for only £150-00

Perfect size for a free-ride bike for anyone 5'4"-6'2" so much more fun and manouverable than a 'proper xc' sized bike IMO. Obviously depends what kinda bike your gonna build with it.

Not really though. The chances are, to do this you'd need:

a new seatpost (probably a clamp too)
a new headset (plus the cost of fitting, which is a workshop job),
possibly a new front mech depending on frame size and cable routing.
New wheels and brakes, unless the the ones on the cheap bike are discs (unlikely at £40-50).

And that's even if you've got the tools and expertise to do the rest (fitting chains, removing bottom bracket etc).

And since this is 13" frame the bike you have will only fit you if you're a child or very short woman.

Still, would be a good deal if it was in full sizes.

But surely this isn't worth it, unless you happen to have all the other bits. A little like making a new car from bits: likely to cost hundreds of times the cost of a new bike?

I agree. Though if it did happen to be the right size and you were after a reasonably specced bike it could be a thought to get one of these Carreras that Halfords have got at £240 (halfords.com/web…499) and swap the parts of these over (still got the seatpost issue and headset to buy). Then sell the Carrera frame and you might have a reasonable Specialized for £350 overall. Not really worth the hassle though in my opinion.

but wouldn't you be banging your knees on the handlebars? this sounds like an xc frame, so it wouldn't be longer would it?

Absolute tosh IMO LOL!!. A 13" frame is ideal for a child of about ten or a short adult of about 5ft.
A 20" frame is about right for a 6ft person.
I am 6ft 6 and have a 22" frame.

They've also got a 13" 2007 alloy Rockhopper frame for £99.99 bikescene.co.uk/Spe…tml Not sure what would be the better deal.

13" is still a bit small, i got my old bike for mucking about on and its a 15"

I personally wouldnt fancy it, i havent liked they Rockhoppers since they went aluminium, instead of that Alloy they used before, thing was light but still strong as hell. The old alloy ones used to do 5/6Ft drop offs onto concrete, and my mate snapped 2 Aluminium frames doing the same thing rofl.

Take a look at Chainreaction for freeride stuff, the Brand-X looks like a Planet-X bike i have.
Those bikes were immense, and handle anything but sure the frame cost me £300/350.
The ones now are £100 but same design really hmmm

Titanium.
The old ones were Nitanium (some Titanium alloy they made up i think) but strong as hell.
Still think its too small tho, and not that suited for freeride, better with one built for such activities.

It's a 13 inch frame FFS! Kids or small dudes only.

Beware - 'titanium' refers to the colour, not the material. If it was a Ti frame it'd be a real bargain...

Thanks - edited my post to make that clear. Description on the shop page isn't the clearest...

There are also several other clearance deals on (mostly odd-sized) Specialized frames. See here for the full list:

I think the small Sirrus Pro hybrid frames at £150/£200 look a decent bet since they come with fork and headset (which means that with the right tools you can fit all the other parts yourself).

That would be like fitting parts from a moped onto a mondeo chassis.

Why do people go freeriding on xc components and then moan when they break?

I am 5ft tall woman and 13inch frames are PERFECT for me... I can actually touch the ground with my feet whilst sat on seet in them.

Just been trialling a 13 inch framed custom mountain bike for off roading lately.
