What are the "prestige" frames?(3 posts)

What are the "prestige" frames?Tim Field

In the MTB world there are a few frame manufacturers that always seem to get it right (on a controversial note!)....

Merlin, Cannondale etc.

Which are the manufacturers that more often than not make great value road bike frames? Are there better tubes being used by some companies for the same prices (I'm sure there are)?

Any general info appreciated!

Thanks, Tim

There are those who love just about any brand you want to mention, and those who will say that same brand is crap. You'll not get much consensus on this one.

There's no such thing as a manufacturer that "always seem to get it right." Everyone has differrent needs for geometry based on their body proportions and the intended use of the bike. My perfect bike, might be a horrible choice for you.
