    That chick is real scary and that frame is way overpriced for welded 4130.

    got me there....... i think the colors are great, and i guess the components they put on it for the picture really did it for me.

    just picture the frame with your crap on there instead of full dura and then picture yourself $475 poorer.

    Hand made in the US, although I don't really think it's possible for a competent manufacturer to screw up a welded frame no matter what their location.
    The bums will always lose.

    Haha. I agree. All the parts on the bike are expensive, nitto stem, duraace group, etc to make their frame look better. 475 really is alot, you could get so much better.

    I've always thought the lo pro was a ripoff too, its kinda like a kilo (isnt everything?) but pursuit.

    fork looks nice, but there's no way i can take affinity seriously anymore.

    75 degree headtube. got it

    fork rake: 45 degrees. what is that a ****ing lowrider bike fork?

    i'm assuming they mean an offset of 45mm, which is a hell of a lot for 75 DEGREE HEADTUBES. the trail on that has to be garbage.

    If they are like BD MSRP, it means the frameset only costs about $250.

    Tough crew here--- although I agree that it is a bit odd to try pushing these frames at this price without using a branded tubeset. What advantages does this have over a Soma Rush, for example?

    it is a crappy pic set.
    And the rake on the fork is odd for the steep ht angle. Should be like 38mm or even less. I call that a lack of design care.
    Fork does look pretty nice.
    DON'T TALK SH*T ABOUT TOTAL or the lo-pro. That's a sexy beast of a bike.
