eddie!!! dehart is a normal fit frame only a bit lighter

4/7/2008 12:39 PM

they are almost the exact same! just pick one!

en dub!

4/7/2008 2:25 PM

the eddie has a shorter back end and diferent seattube angle but other than that they are exactly the same weight and frame.

4/7/2008 2:32 PM

I just bought an eddie.It's real light and has an amazing feel to it.I'd highly recommend it.

4/7/2008 2:48 PM

it depends - if u ride with pegs get the dehart frame cuz the dropouts are stronger n bigger or somethin. I dont think ure supposed to hav pegs with the cleveland frame. Theyre pretty much the same except for the dropouts

4/7/2008 6:04 PM

the eddie drop outs are smaller so no pegs

My refs ?... Nigga just ask about me

4/7/2008 6:49 PM

I've already seen a Dehart crack on the right side dropout
after about a month of riding did a boost at our skatepark and the fucker bent about 30 degrees downwards

24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day.
coincidence?
I think not.

That's not necessarily true.I have pegs on my eddie.The dropouts are plenty big enough.

4/7/2008 7:56 PM

It makes bunnyhops effortless.I'm personally into front wheel tricks,so it's good for any type of front wheel stuff.Manuals are super easy too.

the geometry is fine on them
doesn't mean it's strong

for christ sake the thing is made of japanese sanko chromoly
with varying wall thickness and a butted seat tube

Well I would'nt be afraid to 3 an 8 stair on it if thats what you mean.I'd def feel more comfortable on it than some swiss cheese reaper frame,but thats a different topic.

Fuck Eastern for sure.
It's just my opinion don't be offended
I just have a habit of breaking every part on my bike at least twice

Well the way I look at it is...It's Fit,so its good. Jap Sanko or not,I think it can be trusted.If its good enough for eddie himself,its good enough for me.Plus he chose to have it made in Sanko so that it would be cheaper for the average joe to buy.You know,what with importing and all that crap.

4/7/2008 8:26 PM

Yeah I guess it just comes down to personal preference.

anyways, their signature models, so whatever the pro can dish out, the frame should be able to handle it, right?

4/7/2008 8:28 PM

in theory
doesn't always work out like that though
design flaws and defects lead to some bad shit
i know from experience
hahaha

Yeah,you've got a point. Despite Fit's good rep,I'm sure I cant put imperfections past them.
