“Another solid T1 frame!”

The Good: Very solid, controllable feel. Good weight, yet doesn't sacrifice strength. Feels great riding street and park, like I said it is very controllable and has agile response. High quality US made frame.

The Bad: I can't say anything bad about it actually. Little bit long feeling in the rear end sometimes but only noticeable at times. Could just be me lol. Oh yeah the brake mounts do kinda come loose but I ride brakeless so it doesn't matter to me, just put a dab of loctitie on them (posts).

Overall Review:

I'd definitely buy another one and would recommend to a friend. I'd like to get one of the other T1 frames too, maybe an SFA and see what it's like. I love this frame though and I like to buy/sell frames but I'll keep this one

“Good frame”

The Good: - Solid build. - Good part tolerance made installing the heaset/BB bearings easy. - The 74deg head tube angle makes this frame great for riding in dirt. You wouldn't think there'd be a huge difference in a 74 vs 75 deg HT, but this frame rolled through a lot of things that would've sent me over the bars on my old 75 deg frame.

The Bad: Thread on brake mounts will give you problems unless you Locktite them in place.

Overall Review: I rode this frame for a year and had zero issues with it. I'd recommend it to anyone who want to ride fast on sketchy terrain.
