I'm thinking about switching out my pake for something a little nicer and that fits me better. I'm looking at the steamroller or a iro angus..I'm somewhere in the 300-400 range. I intend to use this bike as a commuter bike..I want something that's gonna take the beating. Do you guys have any recommendations for a good frame?

i have been commuting on my steamroller since April and it can take some abuse for sure...i am excited to ride through the winter also, you won't be dissapointed...it is a comfortable frame for long rides too, it can do it all, i spend a lot of time practicing stands and riding off of curbs and it likes it

I have a fixed karate monkey 29er for the winter..So, I'm not really concerned about that can take the beatings..Alien bikes look nice but they're hella expensive for what they are..Soma Rush is also a nice bike but it's pretty much just like pake with better tubing...What do you guys think about the iro?

steamroller wouldn't be much of an upgrade over a Pake, they use the same basic 4130 and are both TIG welded. the Kona paddywagon uses the same steel as a bare knuckle (deda com 12.5) and might be worth looking into. What size do you need?
