I really love this hardtail, I'll say that right off the bat. The quality of it is dry high, all the welds look really good and the instal is really straightforward. I was going to do a how to artical but honestly there isn't any need. The two pages of directions are all you need to do this job. I know some people are hesitant to hard tail their bike due to cutting the backbone and lower legs. I'm not saying that is a bad way to do the job, it does end up looking cleaner and has a nice flow. But for the high quality, low price and ease of install you can't really beat this thing. They run between 285 and 325 plus shipping depending on what bike they fit. Nothing beats a hand made frame in my opinion but I can say without a doubt I will continue using these hardtails. Pick one up at lowbrow or from us for you Michigan folks. just be prepared to wait about a month for it to hit your doorstep as they are made to order.
