8) Yup that red HT is a beaut

remember seeing a red one on the german forum and thinking it was a much nicer colour for the frame than the polished or the black.

on another note did anyone ever see the orange manitou FS a few years back ? had white sx front and rear if my mind serves me right ! (yes I know that sounds impossible)

Thanks for all the compliments!

The third one has a crack in the head tube. But luckily no problems after it has been repaired, although it's my main Manitou ride.

The trashy singlespeed has two cracks in the headtube...oh, and then I still have a frame in the basement that I parted out - 7 cracks in the headtube!!
