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"?
