As I'm likely ordering some custom Bonts and don't have anything to bolt on to them!
I might still get some new ones, but will be sorely tempted to not over spend...

Not second hand, but relatively inexpensive.  I'd recommend these:

http://www.custom-sport.de/epages/61838706.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/61838706/Products/%22CM%20Frame%20Pro%2B%204x110%20DB%22/SubProducts/%22CM%20Frame%204x110%20Pro%2B%22

Lowest deck height you're likely to find - price is pretty good too.

I might be in the market for the 3x110 + 1x100 version from them to save on postage.

Let me know.

Hmm yeah that's pretty good, any guesses between firm and ex-firm?  Confused

Not sure!  I think it might be to do with the stiffness of the frame.

Adding / removing bridges to allow for less / more flex in the frame.  This suggests the same:

http://www.cadomotus.com/worlds_best_frames wrote:
Since this year, CadoMotus Pro+ frames (4x110mm) are available in a Firm and Ex-Firm edition. The Firm edition has no cross bridges, just like the previous Pro frame editions. New is the Ex-Firm edition, which does have bridges to provide a new balance between flexibility and stiffnes, without losing the unique even bending character.

Swings: "For me, the Firm provides a little more freedom of movement, as the Ex-Firm handles better with high speeds and high pressure. I choose to skate the Ex-Firm, but for example my team mate Ferre Spruyt uses the Firm."

So presumably the 160 "no bridges" model is the "previous pro", and the 200 is the version they're talking about here.
I wonder why the current version is a few mm higher??

I believe that there were - in the past - problems with CadoMotus frames having too little clearance for certain makes of boot (the second wheel would rub on the sole). They've added slightly more deck height to improve compatibility.

Luigino Pilot 4x110 not the current models but quite good.  (I prefer 3x110 1x100.)

You're welcome to them on semi-permanent loan, I'm not too worried if they get trashed.

Barrie,
Are you still looking for frames?
I've got the 4x110 2-point from my jets.

Aren't your Jets a 3PT setup?

I'm in the same boat as Barrie, actually... currently procrastinating between a 4x110 and a hi/low setup.
