I believe that custom frames are usually higher quality than most completes; however, this is not always the case. For example, WTP sells an Envy complete and the same frame as a custom.

you are going to spend almost as much on most custom frames as a decent complete bike. You are probably better off getting a complete and swapping out parts as they fail. This will get you on a bike quicker IMO.

The WTP completes are some of the most affordable high quality completes in the industry IMO. I have the '10 Zodiac and it is a street monster and weighs under 24lbs out of the box.

It was either an aluminum frame or he chromed plated it.

Reply to i need help 8/3/2010 1:56 PM

Most hub bodies are aluminum. You can polish aluminum, but you have to plate steel.

Why do we need a new thread on this topic EVERY EFFING DAY? Buy whatever freakin' shoe you want. Everybody is gonna tell you something different anyway. It's all personal preference.
