Not an Alan frame (whatever that is lol) but on a similar note, I like late 90s to mid 2k Specialized Rockhopper and Hard Rock Sport small frames. I'm 5'7" and they fit me well. I can not afford a modern Specialized or any other top brand that is "fit" to me as most of them are well into the thousands and beyond to 5 figures. I'm a low paid construction worker so I am really only able to spend a few hundred at the most on a bike so I find older ones on Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, local listings, ebay, etc for between $50 and $150 or so and put all new inexpensive Shimano Altus or Alivio parts on them and whatever else they need such as seat, tires, bars, etc, etc.
Those frames I mentioned above are the most comfortable for me to set up and ride. I do a lot of riding for both commuting and fun. It's best if I have 2, which I do now. 1 is a hardtail with cargo rack, pannier bags, and a full set of creature comforts that I use as a commuter bike and then I have a FS lightweight that is stripped down of anything that isn't necessary to ride it. I picked it up for $60 from Facebook and I had been looking for one for awhile so I was excited for the project however I made the mistake of ordering all the parts for it before tearing it down and fully inspecting it and while doing so, as I was taking the headset out I found a hairline crack in the head tube which starts at the very bottom and goes about halfway up before disappearing so I was quite devastated. I contacted the seller and of course he said he hadn't noticed it and that it was an as is sale so "sorry".
It's only $60 and most of the parts that were on it are worth at least that and still usable such as the wheels and tires, brakes, saddle and post, pretty much everything besides the headset and bottom bracket. It's a 3x8 24 speed and the derailleurs are still useable as well as the shift and brake levers, bars, and both the RockShox suspension fork and the rear suspension shock and spring combo. the parts I ordered for it are; bottom bracket, headset, new shift/brake combo levers, front and rear derailleurs, brake cables, wheel set for disk brakes, tires, rotors, cable pull calipers, crankset with chainrings, cassette, chain, saddle and suspension post, handlebars, "gooseneck", grease, and oil for the fork overhaul.
I went on a search for possible options for repairing the frame and saw solutions for; a full professional "proper" job involving removing the tube completely, welding a new one on and having the frame heat treated, quenched, baked, and straightened which also includes grinding or otherwise removing any excess welding material and any other work to have the frame fully ready for assembly @ $300+, or using some type of device to keep the thing together, which another site has instructions for using shaft collars or something equivalent to keep the tube from having a catastrophic failure.
The guy that made the video said he was "over" engineering it but the bike meant a lot to him. This one's only valuable to me in a in the sense that these frames can be hard to come by as they weren't worth a lot to begin with and aren't very sought after today so most of them either went to the junk pile or are sitting in an obscure hard to notice spot in someone's garage, basement, shed, etc. and most likely will be for a long time to come.
While searching for shaft collars, as I wasn't aware of what they were actually called so I typed "pipe clamp" into Google, I saw, among many non viable things, 1-5/8" muffler clamps so I am going to get 2, one for the top and one for the bottom, and follow the rest of the procedure from this guy's video which includes; drilling a small hole at the end of the crack to hopefully stop it from going further up the tube. I think that the muffler clamps will be plenty strong enough to hold it together. if not, and i crash and die, well I won't be able to come back in here and tell you how things worked out but if I'm just injured and am able to come back and post results, I will as well as if nothing happens and the repair stays put which is what I'm expecting. I found grade 8 hardened stainless steel clamps for less than $10 each and to hide the ghetto look of muffler clamps on the head tube of my bike in going to take a piece of stainless steel sheet metal or aluminum if I can find some and put some kind of cool graphic on it.
