    BAMF Bikes

    Anybody have experience with BAMF bikes. Looking at one and don't really know anything about it. Really interested but hesitant buying a bike online that I cant try out first. Here is the bike I'm looking at. http://www.bamfbikes.com/halfnelson.html#SPECS

    Fork sucks.
    I'd be a little worried about a mechanical disc brake branded "Bengal." It's not even Tektro!
    Weird geometry.

    I know they have really attractive prices. If you don't have a lot of money to throw around (I don't,) call your local shops and see if anyone carries used or consignment, or has some '11s left on the floor.

    How much are they? The components aren't very good.

    For that price, used, like I said above, or maybe the Costco Northrock or the Forge Sawback 5xx from Target. That would be if you must have new, or if you can't find used in your area. And they come in limited size runs, so for a man of about average size and proportions.

    They have lowered the price so I'm leaning towards the Dawes haymaker 1500. They are $399 now
