S&M < FBM, Solid, or Standard

Have to say, that S&M custom I had done was beautifully built, Really impressed me quality wise, I'd go as far as to say it was nicer made than my Solid..... :-X

Is Joe still taking pre orders? I remember someone mentioned that he wasn't but apparently you can pre order a new barcode from empire.

Pretty sure you can't get a pre-order thru T1, I was on the mailing list but I didn't have the $200 deposit when the orders were being taken.
Best bets on empire , no color choice but all the other options are open.

why?
Personal experience with poor workmanship.

I've had 3 Maas made Barcodes and 2 Maas made Rubens. I've had 2 S&M made SFA's(along with a warpig, dirtbike, ng dirtbike, ng holmes, bennet, black bike, btm, numerous pitchforks, slams and hoder bars).

Both SFA's were so bad that I never got to even assemble them. The brake mounts pointed out and forced the arms to bind at any angle. The bottom bracket was visibly egg shaped. Tom at Empire and Joe Rich took the frames back and made it right. I still love T1 stuff, just not when they are made by S&M
Every handlebar I've ever seen come through the shop from S&M has had the crossbar significantly crooked. The old S&M's were good. The new stuff isn't straight or built with the quality or tolerances they used to be. I'd never buy another.
