    I frickin love that frame. From what i've gathered, Affinity is a small operation so there probably aren't a lot of lo pro frames floating around out there. You could try a nationwide craigslist search at www.allofcraigs.com

    That guy in jersey lives pretty close to me. He has been trying to sell that thing forever. He might be willing to ship If you are serious.

    yea, affinity is a super awesome shop. i live right down the street from there, and go there whenever i need new parts (that scrod doesn't have....). maybe i'll stop in there later today when they open and check out their stock and see what i can shake up about this "secret color".

    i've been looking for a new frame as well, as UPS botched a frame i bought on ebay. once that money comes back in from the claim (if it ever does) then i'm gonna scrap a bit more together and check those frames out. i'll post back later

    @I Have a Bike Thanks for the link, but they have all the sizing xcept the ones that fit me.

    @hailandkill and @cinemattic thanks for the insight, and yea keep us posted!!

    Mid June isn't that far away, I might wait..but if i find a good deal I'm definitely taking it.
    With that said. Spread the word-I don't mind buying a used frame.

    i talked to the dude there. this is the only pertinent info i could get

    the two colors they're gonna have is like a drab, dark green. i believe matte finish, but could have flakes..
    and of course, black, matte finish

    and at the beginning of june, they're gonna announce a new color, limited run. can't wait to hear what it is. i test rode one of the used ones they had in the shop, and i gotta say that **** is snappy. that back tire just follows the front and feels like it just predicts where it's gonna go. mega twitchy, but in a good fun way.

    you know i'm gonna be the first in line when they get the new shipment in.

    I've been eying a lo pro myself. I may pick one up with this new shipment. No idea how I should pick a size though.

    @cinemattic--I bought a frame on CL and its such a fun ride!!! super responsive and stiff. Oh yea and its steel!!!!

    @muppetmower--Sizing runs true. I measured it and everything was exactly what the website said it was.

    yea, the website is weird with how things are labeled, and how they determine their size

    all i can tell you is that i usually ride a 58, and the large felt really good. a medium woulda been weird, and based on my height (6'3") woulda been uncontrollably twitchy

    Ya, I'm around a 58 and 6', but that seattube on the large is so big. I guess I do see most of them set up with significantly less seat post than normal. Did you try one out with risers or bullhorns?

    it was one with uncut risers, which i'm not a big fan of. i am gonna put either bulls or drops when i get one.

    and about the seat tube, it pretty much just hides the seatpost more. i have currently on my leader a moderatly high seat to stem height, and they had to drop the seatpost down for me on the lo pro a bit.

    but, if you're a drops kinda guy, your back is gonna be flat when you reach down for em. when i was grabbing the risers by the stem it was pretty comfortable, but any lower than that you're gonna be aero

    I want one sooooo bad. If I pull off a 4.0 this semester it will be my gift to myself. If not, I'll find some other way to justify it. Any idea what size a guy who's 6'1" and has a 35" inseam should look for?

    Large, for sure. it's gonna feel weird when you stand over it because of the sloping top tube, but once you get up and going on it it'll feel right...

    I'm in the market, and we're right about mid-June, so I thought perhaps I'd bring this thread back.

    No news of any new shipments so far, but hopefully soon.
