I am looking at getting a new frame and wondering if anyone has some input on the 3 amigos frame.
Thanks.

Quick! Go to Albes.com. They're having a sale on that bad boy for $199.99. I think it may have been one of their 2424 sales. That means the price is only good for 24 hours and I saw it there yesterday. I've seen this sale before, so it stands to reason that they will bring it back in the future.

]DO NOT GET IT!!!


i hav it and the intergrated seatclamp striped out without any effort. now i have to run a bolt on each side and a little gold strip of metal between the clamp and post because it also stretched somehow witch is a pain because it looks ugly, scratches up the paint, and produces rust.

you could of tapped out the threds like rethread it all. or you could have drilled out the threads and attach a helicoil to it. both these things could of solved your problem instead of using your 2 bolt way

i rethreaded it 2 times already thats why i had to do this.

I think im goin to get an s3 though to solve all the problems. I dont trust integrated clamps any more.
