Hello, I want to buy a hardtail frame, as cheap as possible (from €200 to about €400). The only thing is that I want it to have swappable dropouts.

I want to try a gear hub on it, which has a solid 10mm axle (fits in regular quick release).
If this doesn't work out, I want to swap out the rear wheel for a nice and stiff thru axle one. Of course I don't want to switch out my entire frame when doing this, so that's my reason.

I don't really have a preference for geometry or anything. But if possible I would like something with a 140 to 160mm fork.

Second hand isn't an option, I've checked all sites around my area, and nothing. (Because everybody around here does XC)

Also I don't really care about aluminium, steel titanium, carbon, whatever.

Thanks for the help!

Salsa Timberjack with Alternator dropouts suits the need...

I know, I've been looking at it. But €500 I very steep for me. If nothing better comes up I'll go for it though!

yes, but they're expensive too.

On One is making a new frame, the Hello Dave. Looks like they answered my prayers!

At £285, I'd call it cheap for sure!

No, the On One is very cheap.

The kinesis costs around 500€, and at that point I might aswell buy a Salsa
