Back street riding and hitting the skateparks again... Need a new bike! Suggestions?

So... in the Spring of 2011 I sold my S&M Sabbath frame. That thing was sturdy as hell but heavy as well. Worked well for flatland tricks and some street but just too hard to really throw around.

I have an old Schwinn aluminum frame from about ten years ago that I've been using for street as well as at Ray's MTB skatepark in Cleveland Ohio.

I'm a 35 yr old male, 5'10", 185 lbs and I am looking for a good bike... not some chain store cheapy. In the old days ... S&M, Standard, Hoffman, FBM, etc were the companies producing good frames.

I've recently been looking at FIT bike company and it looks like I can find a good complete bike for @$400-$500.

What other complete bikes can the forum suggest that would put up with the rigors of street and skatepark?

Any advise would be appreciated! Thanks!

Don't use that Alum frame for street! It'll fold on you. Danscomp has a lot of good bikes, start there. Make sure that you get as much chromoly as you possibly can, it'll last and help a ton. A lot of the completes from Dans are decent starters, and only a few are really going to give you that pro-esque quality.
