Madman does.

I think there are 2 (maybe 3) s&m's.
I have the only Macneil.
a few DK's.
a few Haros.
and I think 3 or 4 fits.

Yeah, I have a specialized at the moment. When I have enough money I'll replace the frame and a lot of the parts, though

I'd take my specialized frame over any frame I have ridden, that I have owned, and over any of my freinds frames.
Mine is an 03 vegas trx that I got stock and now the only stock thing is the chain tensioners.

Such a nice frame.

It's a Heaton 2 frame, 5.5lbs. Manuals really good, easy to spin, and it just fits me. Right now it's in the 24-25lb range, should be the 23-24lb range after some new upgrades (thats without pegs, but I do run pegs). Some people say thats to light but I havent had any problems yet.

The only thing I dont like is the paint, I'll take my foot over to no foot can or something and if I accidently hit the top tube I take off paint. So it's going to be powdercoated black this winter.

There's a big world out there. Y'all should try and get to know it. The fact is that Aussies know a lot more about America than Americans know about Australia.

What's to know? Don't they all walk around in cowboy hats and khakis riding stingrays and wrestling crocodiles, and saying "G'day, mate!" and "Crikey!"?

No mate. They race kangaroos.
