I was going to get a Dean El Diente, but their production is VERY slow, and I would like to ride sometime this summer. I am 148 lbs, looking to spend no more than $2000 on frame and fork. I have had old Cannondale...not bad (I didn't get the vibration reaction that others seem to get...but I am 52 now, no longer 30), I had a Ti frame, great ride, but it was "lazy" on the climbs and sprints...plus it was the wrong size.
I would like a LIGHT frame (under 3lbs for a 55/56ish) that is highly responsive and comfortable...at my weight you can get rattled after 50 miles or so. I do not race, but do ride group/ club rides aggressivly.
Fire away..ALL materials acceptable...I will investigate all suggestions.

My keyboard gets covered in drool every time I visit this site. Part of the appeal to me is that this is my local neighborhood builder, but it is stunning work and well within your price range. Plus, he'll build it full custom for you:
