I am looking for a used carbon or titanium tri frame for my winter training bike. 51" frame is the optimal size but I can go up to 54" depending on the bike.
I would like to spend about $1000 or under. I have all of the components so I only need a frame.

I would suggest that you look out for a road frame instead of a tri frame. 1) you're more likely to find something in your price range; 2) it'll be safer w/ leaves, black ice, etc.; and 3) what Jordan says here: http://iamspecialized.com/triathlon/rider/jordan-rapp/752/.

I am mostly looking for a tri bike for indoor trainer usage. I have a nice road bike and an orbea ordu for my race tri bike but I don't want to put that on the trainer. I can go up a few hundred dollars and get something from Conte's for about 1200. Just looking to see if any DC tri members were looking to unload an older frame if they were upgrading.

Thanks for the advice. Mike

In that case, I would suggest that carbon/ti won't matter too much, and I'd grab one of these:

Awesome..Thanks. That definitely helps the budget for a trainer bike and looks pretty solid in geometry. I'll probalby grab one of those.
Thanks

It's aluminum, but you seem willing to compromise.

Hey Mike, I have a full carbon Kestral Talon SL frame and fork that I'm looking to sell as it's a tad too big for me.
Hit me at astolz1 at yahoo and we can discuss.
