At least they wont snap like Hutches and PK's. I like the fact that you get the really good geometry of the old with the beef of today. Maybe Ford and Chevy should stop making the designs they have made recently. Some designs are just meant to last. If it's for strength or eye appeal, some designs are just worth it.

Yeah, I see what you mean. I used to go for the light bike as well. But for me, I am tired of looking down and seeing my frame flex underneath me and worry what's gonna crack next. Also busting out the magnifying glass to look for hairline cracks is a pain. If I case it big I rather it be because I screwed up, not because the frame failed.

Im kind of baffled on the tribute design as well. Looks solid but does not resemble a PK at all...

The new SE RIPPER is Taiwan but they are looking into doing a US made version with an oversized upper and lower down tube,I have seen the KAPPA stuff,pretty cool but kind of HEAVY for me as a racer and 5 pounds for a frame,the cromoly PRO CONCEPT was only about 3.5 pounds and that thing is SMOOTH. :loon:
