Im back!!!

well, after a rough spot freshman year, and selling my bike, over a G into it, Im back.....4 years, 3 more inches, and 60 pounds....few questions....

I had an S&M frame built up with S&M and Primo parts, mavic front rim, Alex in the back...great damn bike...problem is, Im alot bigger now, about 6'3" and 270, and want to get back into it...but I dont think a 20" top tube is gonna cut it at all....

I was looking into a 21" top tube....I ride street, thinkin about getting another S&M frame cause the one I had never did me wrong.....

Also, any San Diego riders here????

Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it "San Diego," which of course in German means "a whale's vagina."

Sunday! is Jimmy C's company he started up. His frame is arguably the best out. Get a 21" toptube.

Wow, youve been gone awhile.
S&M still makes good stuff. Solid has a new kick ass frame, and T-1 is good.
Sundays are nice, but everyone is getting one.
I chose Solid because they are good, and no one has them. (2 weeks!!!!!! Till it gets here)

I didnt win the lotery, my parents are chipping in since its my birthday on the 7th of next month...

And the frame is cheap compared to some of the others i was looking at, im getting it for like $300 flat, and the wheel is the only truly expensive thing, aha.

It's true, Poserzakk* doesnt give a ***** about his image.

Why else do you think he would ride this:
