have you ever seen props?, next have you ever heard of a guy named joe schiavi, or also called flatland joe, it's his company, and i've been riding his frame for almost a month or so, and i really really like it, and they'll soon be coming out with new sizes, 21's and others, and they'll also have integrated headtubes and other crazyness, http://www.endemicbmx.com/endemic_site_007.htm it's pretty good i won't lie

The Take is basically a Taiwanese FBM, and is run by the same management as FBM; in other words, if you want a FBM, but can't cough up the dough, get a Take.
