The Federal frame is nice.

Stay away from any product by Eastern with the words light involved.

The Fit flow front wheels are just Sun rims and sun hubs. Nothing too special.

Stick with the Integral Bel Air or any one of the Fit Flow's.

I do beleive what Kinetik is trying to say is "Just get the Bel Air or Fit Flow" as he mentioned. +1 to his idea.

The Bel-Air pretty much is already custom. Just get the Bel-Air. It's more than worth it.

the frame is not poor... he is just trying to make you spend more money... and also, you are not an OG.

But you were the rebel, and had to go ahead and learn spelling and grammar anyway. Dang kids.

teaching begins at home and parents are not reading to their children...they use the TV as a baby-sitter...and that doesn't help a child learn!

Then get the Integral and a new frame.

It's your money you can waste it if you want. But i would 'bet the farm' you wouldn't have any trouble with that stock frame. Gunz is right he's just trying to get you to buy more stuff.
