you couldnt be more correct, this made me laff:
"Other History
- "ding" in top tube, right side.
- Rear dropouts replaced in 1997 sent to Manitou Factory for repairs. Like new.
- Chain Suck grind marks on right side near BB & chainstay"

Just out of interest, the badge on the seat tube is very similar to those found on Proflexes "Easton ProGram Aluminium Made Exclusively for [Insert here Manitou/Proflex]" (exclusive?).

Do they share the same apparently er...not very strong aluminium? If so is it because the Proflexes are full suss that perhaps they've not had the same frame failures? Or am I mistaken (and lucky so far?!)
