DK Weapon.

So i've decied to get a new frame. I love my current General Lee (even though most of you hate them, from what I can tell) but i've outgrown it, i've just gotten to big for it it seems. I'ts not as comfy as before, ive grown from 5"7 to 6" in the last six or so months and dropped from 206lbs to 125lbs in just over a year and now I cant stand riding it because it's just doesnt feel natural. My question is will The Weapon with its longer toptube and just plain bigger dimensions help me out? or should I just suck it up and deal with my General Lee?

thank you very much.

I've seen a guy punch a hole into the top tube of that frame stacking on a box jump, so I won't recommend it.

Get a Kink Larry Bird, or a Kink Freebird, or an S&M LAF.

I know that you and most people are very loyal to the brands you ride. I am too, but just a little bit.get any standard made of ox platinum. yes, they are expensive, but look for ones that have blems so they would be half off. S&Ms are great, fits are great, fbm, solid.
