Up at the top under 'BikeForums', it's called "Search the Forums".

Welcome to BF, I hope you like it here. You should find that for the most part, as long as you type out all your posts properly, people will be pretty respectful and friendly.

So did I... I just wish it was lighter. Although, apparently, the geometry is supposed to be amazing on it.

The T1 Garret Byrnes was high up on my list when i was pondering over new frames. That and the Stricker.


If i ever get a new frame it will be a T1 or Solid.

I want a new frame... but I want to break or severely mangle mine first... but that probably won't be so hard. My prediction is my chainstay on my left side is just going to snap.

You could just cut the seattube if you ever so desired.

Not really, it's like cutting your seatpost, except it's your frame. It's not like you are making holes to lose weight, you're cutting you seattube to lower/slam your seat more.

Yeah. I did that to my frame, it was kind of hard to cut. Easier than the bars, but way harder than the seatpost.
