    Good. I don't think it's that shitty.

    depending on it's usage history, i'd rock that shizz. Rotec's are some sweet bikes....

    you may have some flex issues with the swingarm. tons of fools would never notice it, but i am a freak when it comes to frame flex...

    Don't know about what shape that Rotec is in, but Rotec is a solid bike brand. The newer Rotecs (with Mert Lawwill rearend) are really sweet.

    Cheers,

    rotec has been a good brand although I'd be really wary of riding or even spending $$$ on a 7-year-old DH frame.

    Make sure it fits you and don't spend over $200 for it.

    Thanks for your input. I bought the frame for $170.00 from an E-bay auction to use until I get enough for a different frame. If I had the money I wouldnt mind riding a new Rotec frame, They look sick.
    you like dags??
