    Paging P-Funk (Chameleon schtuff)

    Here's some pics for you...

    Keep them wide.

    So you can get a feel for size.

    Nice color, eh?

    Pre-2003 disc-tabs.

    Again, for size.

    Some other tidbits...the headtube is the thickest I've ever seen--at least 6 mm, probably more. The gussets are plentiful on the pre-2003 models, but they added a really fat one at the HT/DT/TT junction (I would hardly say it's necessary, but what the hell, right?). They also have a fatter seat-tube on the 04s--30 mm, or thereabouts, opposed to the 27.2 on mine. The stays will clear a 2.7 Maxis fine, but with not much mud room; I've yet to try a 3.0 Gazzi (who needs that much tire?), but, with careful wheel placement--the stays have a large, ovalized cutout for tires--it might happen. It's not only the stiffest, but also the most forgiving aluminum bike I've ever ridden. That said, it's still aluminum, and my next bike will be steel, with very similar, if not identical, geometry. Any more questions? ErictheRed has spent more time on his than I on mine, and it might be worth probing him, too, though his has always been geared.

    Thanks Sdizzle

    Thanks Sdizzle for posting that for me. It looks like a good entry-level ss frame for me.
    I would actually prefer steel also, I think, but the Seven Sola steel that I want is a little pricey. Has anyone seen the Hammerhead ss frame? Check it out here:

    Hey Sdizzle, how tall are you?
