wethepeople or fbm

hey,
I bet you guys get alot of posts like this..but im looking for a new bike and i want your guys opinions because you seem to know alot about bikes..especially beerman!

I have about $600-$700 (US) to spend on a new bike and so far my favourites have been the wethepeople 4 seasons, or the fbm angel of death (customized from danscomp.com).

What do you guys think its best for value? or just the best bike in general..or any other recomended bikes ill take a look at if anyone wants to mention any

Thanks

I've seen several Four Seasons frames with cracks at the headtube-toptube junction.

I've never seen a FBM crack, aside from the Outsider.

the wtp bike that i rode was new so it didnt have any cracks or any thing .but ive seen jono(the owner) stuff up a spine transfer and land on the sprocket from like 3.5 feet high and ride away without any damage so i kinda meant the stock parts that come with it are tuff not the frame.beerman has been way riding longer than me compared to him im an amatuer so take his advice.
