    Agree that the CBR1000 frame is probably best of those available. At the end of the day the newer and fewer miles the better.

    Again, from a race bike standpoint one of our riders could always tell which bike was new and which had done half a season of racing by the feel of how much the frame flexed.

    Oddly enough, I was googling info on the mono tracer (it came up in my ludicrous idea thread) and this elmoto dream bike conversation popped up.

    So here's the question: where do we stand now, four and a half years later?

    When last we left, it was a liter bike frame and no anderson connectors. Oh, and it was yellow.

    Since this thread has been resurrected... Al frames are way stiffer than steel ones. I remember when Honda introduced aluminum frames on their CR dirtbike line and the extra rigidity was a problem at first.
    To me, they felt like a big tuning fork... I could feel a harmonic vibration through the handlebars at times.

    It was a great conversation. Unfortunately, as forums go, at that point in time members came, members went, and the subject got dropped.

    On the other hand, I continued my, er, obsession on my own blog, and tagged it as "The CBRe Build Thread". You can read all about it here:

    Alas, the build never actually happened.
