180ing a three stair of all things. apparently there was a defect on the first batch when they came in black or gold zinc colors. but I'm getting the new tony cardona frame for free out of the deal so I'm pretty pumped.

hating on S&M is blasphemy. It's like hating bike riding itself. On the first batch of ltf's they made the venthole in the bottom bracket/seat tube junction too big, and on a few frames the hole was misaligned when they welded them and there wasn't enough surface to create a strong enough bond.

and yes I live in my car

I try not to hate on any company too much. if kelly bolton can put a grim reaper through all the burly shit that he does, it makes it hard to hate on them.

Then the hole was in the weld. You don't need a ton of metal past the weld. Actually, you can have insanely strong welds right on the edge. Chances are this is what they told you to hide the fact that their material was bad or that their welder didn't crank up the heat enough to burn it in. Especially if it broke on the weld, not next to it.

Oh and I hate S&M's mistake with the original dirtbike frame. Damn near any chain would rub a hole in it, and short of bending your frame out and adding spacers, you couldn't do shit to stop it.

apparently Sean Mckinney, the sales guy at s&m took over the warranty department and customer relations so he just got completely swamped with a bunch of shit and he finally got caught up

you have a site?
Im not interested in getting a frame right now but later on when I do need one I may be interested, I love the fact that you actually care and with small up and coming companies I know they take pride in every product. Are your frames custom or do you have a line up already?
