Thinking about a new frame, any thoughts?

I have heard great things about the Soma Rush, but the Leader v3 has also caught my eye. Wont really be tricking, just riding around town and commuting to work. I'm lookin to keep the frame below 500, and am wanting a slight upgrade from my crappy Windsor frame. Opinions guys?

There is enough of your budget to get it powdercoated or see what Wabi could do for you. They are looking at doing a raw frame.

Yeah I emailed them asking about powedercoating because its near impossible to get anything powdercoated here in Utah. I spend a good month trying to get in touch with various powdercoating companies, but didn't have much luck.

powder keg in SLC did a bike for me for $60. They did a pretty ****ty job, but for $60, can't complain, I guess. Roads in SLC are very smooth. Get aluminum bike like wabi LIghtning.

SLC crew represent

****tier than a rattlecan job? Maybe downtown, but in the sugar house area roads are pretty gnarly.
