I would save up the extra $50-$60 and get the fit pledge or fit prospect they have chromoly top and bottom tubes vs all hi ten. Look for something with as much chromoly as possible with sealed bearings.

but I can only choose between the two, first since my height is 4'11, what would I go with, I know the kink curb is 20" but it comes with unsealed bearings but most bearings on the cadet are sealed and the cadet is a 20.25. Which would be perfect for me?

If its between the two I would go with the Verde the sealed cassette is a plus. The 20.25 isn't going to be much noticeable from a 20 if noticeable at all. Some guys are 5'5 and ride 21tt its all preference.

Someone here bought a Verde and the whole rest end of the frame was fucked , like literally sideways . Kink seems k have good completes all around while Verdes higher end ones might get a bit more attention in my opinion , Adam Piatek runs a Kink frame supposedly and he's insane on a bike so I'd trust Kink
