I own a Brodie Knack double suspension medium size arround year 2009
It is for XC

Is it possible for me to buy a new frame, a large one this time, and switch everything to this new frame ?
If yes, where can I find discount/clearance frames for this ? Any web links ?
I am base in Quebec/Canada

yes, it will work.

As long as the following parts are the same size as the new frame can handle

REAR WHEEL SPACING
BOTTOM BRACKET SIZE
HEADSET SIZE
SEAT TUBE SIZE

if those all match your new frame, your good to go.

JensonUSA.com usually has some nice deals going on. Not too sure what frames they offer, I am usually searching through their parts section. Try sourcing from your LBS for people who are upgrading their rides. You may find a frame that someone else is going to part with.

You'll also want to check the front wheel axle size and rear wheel axle size (in addition to the spacing) to be sure. You most likely have a 12mm quick release front and back and 135mm spacing in the back, but I'm not sure maybe Brodie was ahead of the times.
