This frame feels solid as a rock. Once you ride it, you start to gain trust in it. It is also loaded with weight saving features other then the holes. It feels a lot like my S3, only lighter. Unreal. The only thing I would do different, is offer the frame with a brakeless option.
I have had at least 3 pairs of these bars over the years. 10/10 right off the bat. Never had one problem. Never bent. Never stripped. The only thing i found was the backsweep wasn't all me, so i switched but not from failure, or distaste for the bars. They worked perfect. Great bars. strongest bars ever
i also had this seat. An 06 model of the alistar whitton slim seat. It worked great did its job. The only problem i had, not only i bent one side of the rail more than the other, i bent both really bad. But the seat did its job still, so i won't give it a fail. I did switch it out for the stronger BlkMrkt seat. 9/10
I've had a few shadow seats. I always loved them. When i got this seat last year i thought it was light, strong and fun. The seat did everythig i reuired of it. The only thing i had an issue with is the one rail bent makinf the seat sit crooked. great seat. great brand 9/10
One of the best frames out. I just got mine yesterday in raw, it should cost more than just 300. Plus you get a fsa impact headset and a mid bb with it. But i ride with the mankind team member jeff klugiewicz, and his archangel has been holding up great. not a problem with it. buy it.
This is the only real wheel I will run. The hub is trouble free and the rim is the strongest out there in my opinion. It's a triple wall but light as most double wall rims. Hang up on coping like you do to a telemarketer, with a vengeance, and it'll come back for more.
