    im looking for a used frame and cheap, and they are probably going to be older models.

    i know that these are bad frames from looking around at this forum and other forums
    - Echo ES (easy snap)
    - Older Brisa's

    I never heard of these frames of being a problem
    - Zoos
    - Zebdi
    - Norco TT

    I didnt mention Koxx or Coustellier frames because they are too expensive. Something that catches my eye are builds that are 400 or under. I have seen 2 Zebdi builds, 2 Brisa builds, and 2 Echos, and 1 TT that are around that price. Since these offers are rare, i usually want to purchase them, but im hesitant to buy a poor frame. what do you suggest.

    Zoos are not like Zebdis and nothing is like the Norco.

    Zoo- Want something "long" more "U C I"
    Zebdi- Want an all around trials bike (IE could compete and beat on)
    Norco- You sadist! You want a bike that can do everything, old school geo, quality steel= Boner

    any model zebdi is worth taking a look at if you want that kind of bike. if you want a longer bike, a zoo, BT, or echo are the only ones that are going to be in your budget.. you can get a brand new bt for like $450 or somthing...id look for a used echo pure or somthing like that if i were you. how much $ do you have for a frame? id never ride a norco in my life.
