Awesome Frame

The Good:

Super Strong, Perfect geometry. Sexy as hell.

The Bad:

A tad heavy, but well worth it for the durability.

Overall Review:

I designed my own frame, and had a buddy build it for me. After I broke it (tubing was too light) I found the contraband had almost EXACTLY the same specs as my custom bike!
I've been riding it for many many years, and it's performed flawlessly.
