Yeah this looks like a bonkers large sized version but on an 18 this is about the nicest looking hardtail frame I ever did saw.

hmmm, a bradbury manitou.
i used to have one of these, but sold it on 6 months ago.
mine had a crack near the seat collar.
they all seem to have a crack somewhere.
a very rare frame these days.
best of luck with the search.
here's a pic of my old frame :D

Why do they keep cracking! What was actually wrong with these? They all seem to do this in all types of places - headtube, bb etc

this is what makes me laugh , whenever the manitou and the marin frs are mentioned in the same sentence its only to slag the marin
and yet i have never heard the marin having half the rep of the manitou ones for cracking
ok so the manitou version was the coolest to have , right up until it CRACKED !!!!!!
i think i would rather have the one thats gonna last .
so what were the marin suppliers and welders using / doing that the bradbury ones were`nt
