    I picked up a Mirraco 24" for pump track use and a little DJ stuff. It also has the Snafu seatpost and I've been told that it's crap. I have an Odyssey post in the garage waiting to go on the bike when it warms up.

    $500? We have different definitions of 'beater'.

    I didn't mean beater as in junker, more something I can ride hard and not worry too much about breaking stuff.
