@WTHarper, but aren't there brands like Diamondback that have both department store and non-department store models?

comment What frames fit these requirements?
Specific product recommendations usually aren't a good fit for the Stack Exchange question-and-answer format because of their limited lifespan. Could you adapt your question to be more about issues than specific products?

comment What are the steepest, highest, most miserable road ascents in the world?

comment Does the USADA have the authority to strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles?
@NeilFein, since other answers describe the USADA's specific relationships with other international organizations as described in other answers, a contradictory answer should have at least a little bit of evidence.

That's interesting--was there anything unique about the situations where you went over-the-handlebar using the front brake?
