8-pack or 6-pack?

8 pack doesnt have 100% chromo and that pisses me off. Should I spring for the extra and get the 6-pack? Or just beat the 8-pack and upgrade once I break everything like my friend wethepeople did to his General?

I would like your input.

You are not going to like the 8-pack... I tried my friend's and it sucked... I couldn't even bunnyhop with it.

I've ridden it... and I can bunny hop and do everything on it. Maybee your just not a good rider.
What I am concerned about however, is that it is not all steel. I could have a WTP 4 seasons for $650 Canadian. I'm not really sure about it all anymore though. I am going to see if they can get a 6-pack in before the 25th.

Maybe the bike just sucks and I don't like it and I was making a statement to say that I am a lot better on my bike and any other bike besides that one... I happen to like my fit pro, and I can do everything on it just fine.

My buddy just snapped his Fit pro in half. He only had it for like 3 months so that really sucks. I am FINALLY going to pick up my Flow tommorow afternoon

I like my fit and has been pretty good to me so far... besides me completely shattering my leg on it.

Yeah it is a nice complete for the money and it feels great, that non- chromoly back end just kills it though.

I really like everything about it... the only thing I have broken on the bike is the pedals... but that was way back when I first started out and was experimenting with pedal grinds.

I've decided to pick up the 8-pack, and upgrade as I break. Then, when the inevitable frame breakage comes along, I'll pick up a nice full chromo like the sunday. By then, hopefully i'll have excellent quality components on it.

You are going to be breaking a lot if you ride a decent amount...
