Yes, Dia-Compe parts are of excellent quality, but they don't make frames; they make brakes, brake levers, and headesets, mainly.

It is just a sticker though, another sticker on it (at the bottom of the seat post) says "designed and manufactured exclusively for Dynacraft."

There are a lot of good things about the huffy though, it's strong (got hit by two cars, on two seperate occasions without a dent), it's light,4.5 pounds, and it's actually big enough for me, i'm 6'3".

Yes, we all know how wonderful your Huffy is.

Unfortunately for you, anyone here with half a brain is taking your statments with a grain of salt.
