want a frame with short CC, Steep head tube and somewhat low bb height. getting ready to pull the trigger on the mac frame, but the shortest it comes in is 20.625. I like 20.5 TT lengths will that extra length change the feel. I like the low bottom bracket (11.5) and short stays, anyone got some feedback before i grab one of these? people say the btm chips paint and dents easy

Not a fan of S&M frames. Seen tons of ATFs break and the welds on my girlfriend's ATF are horrendous. Have you considered the Sunday Motoross or Broadcaster?

All the fits that fit your specs are the s&m made ones so i personally wouldn't recommend them just from what ive seen. Sunday frames are amazing though, you.really cant go wrong there.

Fit Wifi is 11.6. Not the lowest but shouldn't be noticeable. Non S&M made.

The BTM is a sweet frame, a lot of guys around here ride one and love them. I was riding one for the first half of the summer and it felt great. I'll definitely build it back up some day soon.

They are very light and responsive and still feel really solid.

The Mac is sweet too, just with a slightly longer back end and taller stand over.

I'd get which ever one you think is cooler, and what goes with your colour scheme.

My friend snapped 3 BTMs in a year. You're from New York, why aren't you getting an FBM or Kink?

Nearly the same, but lighter and a bit faster steering. It would be considered the most tech out of the three.

Agreed with Steve and Broken. Love mine as well. The ATF was my second choice if I couldn't get a Mac, but I find it funny how they're snapping so much while the Fit frames made by the same guys on the same equipment with the same materials aren't. Agreed with Colin tho, you should look into FBM if you want to buy and support locals. Being from OC originally (within 15 minutes of the warehouse) is another reason why I'm kinda biased towards S&M/Fit. Lol

im biased towards usa made stuff to begin with
biuased towards s&m fit stuff because their customer service in my experience has been top fkin notch
fbm, solid (rip), standard lairdframe etc are all good too
