Don't get it. Look for something that is full chromo and has 3-piece cranks. I wish i would have got a full chromo frame real bad now.

Or you could really try to break it by riding really hard. Good excuse.

Thats what I'm doing to the MacNeil, even though I have reason enough to buy a new frame already.

You know you are picking a bunch of race bikes, right? I'm hoping you are planning on racing.

You said a good bike under $300. Those are both good for right around $300. Count your change for a week and get one of those. And what do you have against stolens?

No. When I first arrived at the BMX scene, I thought the same thing. It really doesn't make much sense, but apparently it does to DK.
