I have a pair of Roval Control SL (carbon), I have a full XX group (BB30).

Now I need a frame 100mm and a fork 100mm. what are your suggestions?

The frame I have checked out so far are the Niner Jet R.D.O, S-Works Epic, SC Tallboy.

What frame is the best? what have I missed?

My first choice would have to be for the Tallboy, it is a smooth easy ride.

Tallboy all the way. Won a few races on mine, and lots of up and down KOMs, including winning sea otter cat 2 this year. Built up with full xtr, carbon rovals, and some light parts and ti bolts at under 24lbs for size large. Great handling bike. Building up a Tallboy long travel now, and may end up selling the reg tb carbon if the LT is almost as fast up, as I expect even faster down and even more comfy.

I'd throw a vote in for the Jet 9 RDO. Very, very responsive. Steeper HT angle than the tallboy, but, to me, feels more planted. I really like both the Epic and the Tallboy.

If I wanted something slacker, more active and squishy, and a good all-rounder, I'd go with the Tallboy. If looking for a pure racer, and didn't mind having to send the shock off for service, I'd go with the Epic.

Something felt very nice about the RDO the times I've ridden it, though.
