People have asked quite a bit lately about how to tell quality workmanship from questionable. In my eyes this frame is of questionable workmanship and it only took me 3-4 seconds to come to that conclusion. "How?" you say, simple look at the dropouts. When I see dropouts that haven't seen a file and are put in without any modification that says to me that they didn't spend too much time on the rest of the bike either. I'm not saying it's a poorly constructed frame, but personally I question the attention put into the build. ciao, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Ankle deep with rain in Santa Barbara, Calif.
