Anyway, bakc on topic. So everybody seems to agree that I should go with the WTP Metric (2007)? It already has 3pc cranks, a sealed freecoaster, small sprocket, short crank arms, etc (as opposed to the DK Signal which I'd end up needing to shell out prolly a good $100-$250 on parts later on).

Plus the WTP Metric is only 27.75 lbs, compared to the Signal being about 32 lbs (DK and Hoffman seem to make really heavy bikes). The weight should be a lot better that my 37 pound Hoffman. About ten lbs lighter. :O Of course I'll have to treat it nicer than I do my Hoffman (which takes a considerable amount of abuse).

What was that 'not' for? Anyway, i found a place that is selling the wtp metric for only $480. A lot better than $600 from the other place. so i think ill get it from the cheaper place, once im finished reading reviews on the bike.

That movie sucked.

EDIT: Also, you forgot the 'pause' before the 'not.'

Honestly, Ive ridden a few Signals. I dont see anything wrong with it. Its perfect for beginner flat, short frame, ideal gear ratio, four pegs, and a freecoaster. Its not worth spending $600 on flat bike before you start riding and learning what style parts feel comfortable to you. There are so many options in flatland that could be why there are so few completes out there.

I dont know how old you are or how good you are at riding, or how much you weigh, but I highly doubt youll break parts on the Signal. I weigh 180 and beat my friends Signals and they are tough. dont let the 1 PC. cranks scare you, its more than sufficient. As you ride and progress you'll want to change parts that suit your riding style better and your going to want to do that wether you but the WTP or the Signal. dont waste your cash. The signals a great ride.

One thing with the Signal though is that it weighs 32 lbs. My Hoffman was about 37 lbs, and I really hate the weight. It was one of the main reasons that I decided I needed a new bike.

I could get the Signal if I suddenly realize I don't want to get the Metric, but I don't know. The Signal doesn't seem to be quite as much "flatlandish" as the Metric (the frame differences are quite different and all). I would rather spend $500 on a bike that I would really like that $300 on a bike and have a chance that I wouldn't like it (the main thing right now that I don't like about the Signal is that it of course weights a good amount more, and it has an unsealed freecoaster, whereas the Metric has a better sealed one).

But thanks for your opinion! (You are actually the first person to post a reply that is actually on topic in a while, hehe.) If I suddenly find some reviews or something on the Metric and it's a bad bike I'll probably go with the Signal.
