Ok so I'm doing this all wrong and I have bought a set of 160mm Lyrics because they were cheap and I need to pair them up with a new/second hand frame. I may be doing a spot of Enduro style races next year if I can get off my fat ars*. Any suggestions for a full sus frame with tapered headtube?.oh and incase anyone was wondering I got my Lyrics(used) for £280 :D happy days.

As long as it's a semi integrated headset (many are these days) you can usually use a tapered steerer using an external lower bearing in the 44mm mounting, so you don't need a tapered headtube.
