    The correct answer to all of these "best" questions

    There is no "best" bike or frame. There are many different makes of bikes and frames. As with any product, they hit different price points and vary in geometry, materials, etc. For a given person, the "best" bike or frame will depend on your budget and the geometry and sizing that will fit you. Even then, there is no "best," but a number of different models that would yield essentially the same fit and ride. You can also buy a custom frame that will fit you perfect and can be painted in any color or design that appeals to.

    So quit asking these stupid "what is the best bike" questions. They are annoying. It's sort of like asking "what is the best fruit?" There is no correct answer because we all have different tastes, needs and preferences.

    Rant over.
