I don't like it. You don't need a frame that light. It's sheer stupidity as far as I'm concerned. Maybe it would be okay for park riding, but that's about it.

I'd rather not risk my life on that thing with my style of riding. I don't like the geometry of it either. That's way low slung.

It's a nice looking frame, but it's as light as a racing frame which wouldn't be very good for street or park or whatever, unless you're really smooth. It's not as bad as the Ti Reaper though. That thing is RIDICULOUS.

And what do you guys mean 'low slung'?

If I remember correctly Bob Scerbo has been testing this prototype for quite a while now. If this frame lives up to his riding, I am sure that it can live up to your broken leggedness.

I'd ride one if the price was good. I wouldn't break it with the way I ride.

Where in my post did i say it was scerbo's frame? I said he has been riding this frame for quite some time for s and m. I know he has been spotted more than a few times riding a LTF. Too bad, eh? You tried.

Doesn't mean that its HIS frame. So many people ride for example Federal T-nez's but it isn't their signiture frame

I love that color. The frame looks good, but a bit too light. I don't think i want my bike any lighter then it is now...

Okay, if you people are THAT bad at reading....

Scerbo's frame= any given frame that he has been riding.

Scerbo frame= a signature frame.

Nothing was said to indicate that the LTF was his signature frame. I said that he has been riding this frame, (the LTF) for probably a good 6 months now. If not closer to a year. It has been holding up last time I have heard anything.

HESSUS.

it's not my job as a reader to discern what you mean. Writing is a tool meant to communicate effectively, and it's the writer's job to make their ideas clear to the reader.

Actually, what I meant to say was

"if you 'assume' you make an ass of yourself and make me want to mow you down with a tommy gun"

my statement was clear

i 100% understood what "sprintcar" was saying.

and i as far as the frame is concerned. I'd run one. I love the steep headtube and low standover height. and the weight is just a bonus. I'm in love.

I love the dropouts shape, but not he cut outs. I'm also not a fan of the lower slung tt's.

If S&M put those dropouts on an LAF, i'd be getting a new frame.
