Strength:

Amazingly strong, will not break, quite a good lookin' frame, no paint to scratch, reflective stickers (!), low top tube.

The most hardcore hardtail ive riden, I had a .243 racing frame for a while, and that was also an amazing frame. My recomendation if you like steel get the .243, if you like Alu get the LeToy. The new version looks even better!!

Strength:

It's pink! Absolutely the most bomb-proof frame I've ever seen. Very easy to adapt this frame to your particular brand of hardcore riding. You will NOT break it. Ever.

Weakness:

You're joking, right?

I've been riding this for urban for around 15 months now, and it just laughs at my pathetic riding - you can almost hear it saying, "Is that all you've got?". Very configurable frame, I've had it set up with single-speed, run with chain tugs and skinny tyres (24x2.5/2.75); now with 3.0" tyres, chain device and gears. Perfect for its intended use - urban assault. This frame begs to be ridden hard; it is a frame you can have absolute faith in. It will not let you down. Props to Tristan :-)

Strength:

-Bulletproof - duh!!
-Looks amazing
-Gussets are well thought out, work perfectly
-Great company, good service (like you'd need it!)
-Versatile geometry (a bit heavy but does everything well!)
-Stable as a tank

Weakness:

-It's heavier than most of us need. But with Alum, flex will cause weakening, and this guy don't flex!
-Head tube is a bit slack for street or tech riding (and DJ)

The perfect frame for someone who wants an all-around extreme use hardtail. It's more than most of us need, but you can rest assured your frame isn't gonna break. Also, if I crank the seat up, it's a comfortable climber! A bit lazy yes, but comfortable nonetheless.

Strength:

Geez its beefcake. I'm a fatty and i still haven't broken it. Somehoe ripped the two eyelets out my dt swiss hubs and nothin wrong with the frame. Takes drops, crashes, lame riding over stupid things and too big rocks at silly speeds with ease. Plus it is super trick lookin. Turns heads everywhere, i mean how many have you ever seen?

Weakness:

Ummmmm, not much. Heavy if u build it up with big stuff, but then again you aren't gunna see one at the olympics in the cross country. ie its built for a specific job of which cross country poofen around isn't included.

It was expensive, but i know no one else with one. people get on it and say....wow this feels rad...it does. Takes whatever u can throw at it, rides like a dream, prob a nice target for thieves but i aint had any probs and don't buy one cause i want to be the only one with one. (OK definitely buy one just not if u r in Brisbane)

Strength:

A tank!...really solid, plus you can run 24" or 26" rear wheels, with v brakes! Adjustable wheelbase (This really allows you to experiment with different geometry)
You can run the 3.0" gazzi's in 24" or 26" and they fit in the frame! I'm pretty sure no other hardtail can do this.

Weakness:

(Not really a weakness) but it can be heavy if built up with DH parts (mine was 38 pounds with the old DH wheelset/ gazzi tires Etc...). But I changed the wheelset and parts out and it's at 30 pounds now (Not bad for such a beefy bike).

This bike gives you so much confidence; because you never worry have to about hurting it. I've dropped it on stone benches and crashed on concrete at the skate park, it won't even dent much less break. And I love the feeling of landing a big wheelie drop to flat concrete on a nice soft 3.0 tire that actually fits in the frame. And the looks you get riding this thing. Everyone always asks the same question: "What is that?" and not just other riders, people at bars! It's like I’m the Colorado rep!
The bottom line is: it's THE most Burly, and one of the most unique hardtails I’ve ever ridden. It's not cheap but what custom hardtail is? So if you want the beefest hartail made than this is it. If you want somthing light then this probly is'nt right for you.

Strength:

geometry is perfect for all around everything! drops, jumps, manuals, bunnyhops, half pipe, and trials riding of any sort. what more could a hucker ask for in a hardtail?

Weakness:

its not butterfly light, but what do you expect from a strong frame? i can still bunnyhop waist high

the best non suspended street bike ever!! mine is a le toy 2 but the only difference is the front gusset is 1" shorter, no chain guide mount, and the drive side dropout isnt as big. same geometry though and i choose it over my s.c. bullit any day! truly the best frame i have ever bought, and it will be with me untill i die!!

Strength:

Were to start. The 2003 Le Toy III is even beefier then the 2002. The TT & DT is closer together with some serious welding to increse the strenght at the headtube. Stiff! (I like 'em stiff, so for me that's a strength) Can ride alot of diffrent wheel combos, this frame takes anything up to 3.0 (and if there were bigger tires, possible more) To sum things up: Awesome.

Weakness:

Yet I havn't found any, and possible I won't either. Of course, if your a crosscountry rider or the cruiser type, this isn't the bike for you.

If your a urban/dirt rider, then this is possible one of the best frames for you. Yes they are others in the same class like the Tank/Punkass, Evil Imperial, Norco one50/two50/4hun etc but here in Sweden, all other non european brands is atleast 3-400$ more expensive, and frankly, 990$ för a Imperial frame is just silly. Best bang for buck if your into these kind of bikes and lives in the Nordics.

Tony

Strength:

Very strong, gussets, looks, ajustability

Weakness:

Possibly weight, don't notice it. Slightly pricy

Haven't had the frame long, but very very impressed, it's very chuckable, fully adjustable, very stiff ride and the acceleration is amazing, bike feels very stable when jumping and is superb for urban riding.

Definatly worth getting one.
