I've never ridden one, but the Elephant NFE seems to get a lot of love. There was one listed here a while back and I kind of regret not pulling the trigger. I wound up getting a Salsa Fargo at a great price, which is hardly a sleeper but has performed admirably in all kinds of conditions.

Yeah the NFE is such a great looking frame.

Bmc

We don't have any BMC dealers in our area, so when I take my early model Team Machine on a group ride, many people do take a second look. (I do prefer Ti and steel.) It has lugs, and at least one person has stated that he likes his lugged model better than the later model without lugs. It has a really tall head tube which works for me because I'm 6'3" and have long legs. I purchased on the Road bike Review site from a guy who said he could not make that tall head tube work. He gave me a smoking deal on F/F and it was like new. It rides much better than my previous CF bikes made by Trek and Spec.
Does anyone know how many bikes they sell in the US? WW?

I'm not sure you are talking about the same BMC I mentioned before. I'm talking about Black Mountain Cycles.
