Ahhh. What a deal, I must have it.

Old news here but still an AMAZING deal. Simtra is selling their $600 Psycho frames for $300. A big batch of the frames have small dents on the opposite side of the V brake adapters because the manufacture used the wrong bolts. Plus it comes with a full warranty.

I have been looking for a cheap street frame mainly because all of the FR spot around me are disappearing. If I were to buy this frame it would be a LONG process to get it built up the way I want it. So either I splurge and buy one or maybe get a DMR Sidekick for $100 less.

Here's a link to the Pscho frames:

Any input...

can you say STRESS RISER? They'll be replacing some of those on warranty.

Mehhh, maybe. It's a steel frame so it should be able to handle a dent or two.

Metal doesn't get stress risers.
