For the most part, you hit it on the head. Color and weight. Having a full 4130 CrMo frame is better than a partial CrMo and def better than steel. One variable might be top tube length. Most range from 20 to 20.25 to 20.5 to 20.75 or 21 for street/park bikes. Flatland frames top tubes tend to be smaller at 18 to 20. There also some slight differences in chainstay lengths making it easier to manual (wheelie) than others. Other than geometry, it's apples to apples. Bottom brackets are the same way too. To answer your question, there is no real difference between a CrMo Eastern, CrMo Kink and CrMo DB. It's all hype. Ride what you like. F the haters.
