Fit S3 Edwin

Staff has the new Fit Edwin frame with some details now, they'll ship on the 18th.

http://staff-bmx.com/store/frames/fit_edwin_n.html

I have no idea why they made it so light.. 4.8lb when the guy who designed it runs 4 pegs and rides street, with a lot of huge grinds?

When I buy a new frame, it's going to be one of the ones without brake mounts. I doubt I'll go for this one though, it seems like the Sunday would be stronger and I think he was planning on making a brakeless version of it since most of the team seems to ride brakeless anyway.

EDIT: I just saw on the Sunday site that the brakeless ones are going to be done this month. Sweet.
Anyone want to give me three hundred and twenty bucks?

I like both frames, although yes, the Sunday! does look a bit stronger. I like both frames a lot personally and if I decided on a frame it would be one of them... but since the Edwin frame doesn't have break mounts I'm pretty much forced to go with the Sunday!.. that's not too bad though. And I don't really know why Edwin would have such a light frame either...

I think the Edwin has a hole in the SS brace for caliper brakes, but those are crappy as far as I know. An S3 aitken would be practically the same thing, and has mounts.

The S3 Edwin does not have a hole for brakes on the SS brace; in case you didn't notice, they're used a non-tubular brace on it.

If they didn't make it light hardly any one would buy it.

you mean BRAKES and if it had brakes it would be the same damn thing as the fit 1,2,3 except the minor changes fit makes in an attempt to "upgrade" them.

It was late at night, I was tired... I apologize for my spelling if it means that much to you.

Someone on BG weighed it and it was over 5lb, so they must have just had the number wrong at first. And Emipre says it's over 5 also.
