Felt TK2 or TK3 (I think they're the same frame now). Maybe check out Aventon and State. Leader is making frames again too, though I have no idea if they're any good now.

Buy a $2000 bike. Unless you have a lot of spare parts lying around or plan on sourcing lots of used and older stuff. Buying all new parts just to assemble them yourself is burning money.
