Hi, this is what I have so far...

1) Mavic Ksyriums
2) Shimano 105 (i like it regardless of what some may think)

Can anyone recommend a good frame below $1000 (US) ? Alum or Steel...

Make sure whatever you buy fits you well. If in doubt, locate a good shop and get fitted properly. It will cost you about $50, but many shops will refund this if you purchase the frame through them. Then you will be armed with the right information to get the right frame regardless of material.

Having said that, will have a comprehensive offering of frames far below your price point. As always, I'll push Steelman's SR525 at $940 (frame & fork). I have the 853 Steelman and it is awesome. The only difference with the 525 is the tubing - workmanship and frame options are identical.

Suggest looking into Bob Jackson Cycles w. Reynolds 531 tubing. Customer geometry and paint scheme at no extra cost. Craftsmanship is exellent for lugged frames. Try the following sites: {I think}.

Bob Jackson = miserable git, but excellent frame builder. If you can take his attitude you deserve the frame you will get...

I just recently was in the same boat looking for a new frame, I ended up going with a frame from Charlie at He really knows his stuff and has a good selection. The best part is that you can get the bike fit exactly for you, it may cost a tad more but haveing a bike that is built for you and you only is worth it. I would highly recommend Empire for anyone in the market.

Hope that helps
