Thats fairly rad. Although if you designed a new Macniel seat for flat, dont you think it would be a good idea to have the plastic wrap around the back of it more to help it last?

I love the graphics... now all they have to do is hook up a longer version of their seatpost so that I can finally run a pivotal seat and be done with seat guts and rails!  ;D

LOVE IT!

I'm a big fan of the two-tone.  Probably my favorite (as far as looks go) straight tube bike so far.

I agree about the seat though.  I'm still waiting for a pivotal with either more plastic, or all plastic.

i've been waiting for quite a while for a straight tube frame - and thanks to the seatstay bridge i know i won't be getting a macneil.

well done, macneil, good luck with the gimmick.

How is something that has been on bikes for at least 20 years a "gimmick"?

I've been wondering when this Macneil flat frame will make an appearance very impressive looks similar to the WTP div not sure  on the paint job but first impressions i give it a thumbs up. :beer:

Yah me too they make most if not all of their frames available in 19.8"TT.makes you wonder if street and flat are really going to be integrated

i really hope this works out,
a mainly street park company taking an interest in flatland, unfortunatly though in the past it always seems that after one year they find out they dont sell many and the flat line gets dropped,   fbm,sputnic,mutiny,and now wethepeople, i hope macneil and mankind give their flat products time to flourish

The two tone paint with matching rear rim and frame and front fork and rim, very nice touch.

aside from the fancy color scheme, what's unique about this frame?
