I know I can get some other options from this group.
It would require someone in Nashville to know what is physically available in the area.

with that said, there are some great options right now in quality frames. Depending on size, i wouldnt count on many to be local.
below is an abbreviated rundown of frames and complete bikes that have quality tubing and are, in my opinion, well designed/thought out.

https://blackmtncycles.com/frames/road-frames/ - double butted 8/5/8 heat treated tubing frame and steel fork. designed by a small shop owner who has decades of bike design experience.
https://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/questelite.html - reynolds 631 tubing frame with carbon fork
https://shop.fairdalebikes.com/colle...ship-surf-blue - double butted tubing with enve carbon fork
https://shop.fairdalebikes.com/colle...rame-enve-fork - same as above, but just frame and fork.

There are a lot more- this is just a sample that is hopefully wide ranging in style, look, and setup for you to get an idea of what you might want.
