what one????

Im looking at 3 bikes:

Solen cheater FC
WTP Envy
verde luxe

Right now im kind of leaning towards the stolen, i heard the parts on verde can be kind of cheap. Anyone have any suggestions, doesn't necessarily have to be any of those 3 just looking for a good bike. Here are some links:

Stolen: http://www.danscomp.com/101455.php?cat=BIKES
WTP: http://www.danscomp.com/101789.php?cat=BIKES
verde: http://www.danscomp.com/101506.php?cat=BIKES

Any suggestions would be great
i have been searching for days, finding so many different reveiws, id rather just here it from a person

The WTP and Stolen you chose look super nice. I'd flip a coin.

Should I get a FIT TRL 1 2009, 09' Felt Fuse now or wait for the WTP Recon and Trust bikes to arrive at my local dealership in mid April/May?

The FIT TRL 1 costs around $20 less than the Fuse here. At the moment, there are no confirmed prices for the WTP bikes, but they'll cost more for sure. Since I have to wait for a month or so for the bikes to arrive, I will be able to save more money to get either the Recon or Trust.

By the way, I'm 5'7 and 150 lbs.

the TRL 1 has a hi-ten frame=not good. the Fuse actually looks pretty good. and of course the WTP bikes are both good. my advice, is to go with the Fuse because both of the WTP's have a TT thats probably going to be too long for your height. go with the Felt

Cheers for the tip, looks like I'll be looking at bikes with a 20.5" TTL. I just went down to the bike store and two more bikes caught my eye: the 09' Felt Manic and 09' Hoffman Cirrus AL.

All bikes are full chromo but the main differences in my opinion are the rims and hubs (Fuse- Alex dm24 36h front (3/8), alex mus16 48h rear (14mm); Manic- Alex mus16 48h front and rear (14mm); Cirrus AL- Alienation Blacksheep 36H front and rear (3/8 and 14mm respectively).

Which one of these do you guys reckon that's most value for money?

im so glad that you look ask about bikes that are full chromo... between these two, i'd prob go with the hoffman just because it looks a little cleaner lol

and the axle size doesnt matter, its just a weight/strength thing that different people have different concerns about. respectively.

I think it looks the best, and it has everything you need. And it doesn't have stuff you don't need i.e. gyro and front brakes.

It might be. Depends on how much he is interested in it. It's a lot less than other Jr.'s/Minis right now.
