Im looking into buying a new frame, full chromoly and it has to be raw (preferably cult or fit)

There's loads. If you want a cult or fit, buy a cult or fit. Geometry is the more important factor than who made it or what colour it is though. Both cult and fit make plenty of different frames, if you can't get the colour you want, you could always raw it yourself?

1. I don't want to go through the effort of rawing it myself 2.I'm not good with numbers and stuff

Then just buy the first raw fit or cult frame you find. Problem solved.

Get the Fit Wifi... because everyone else has one? You should have one too..
If you're short like Barney Rubble? get a short tt. 20.5
If you're tall like Fred Flintstone? look for a longer tt. 21"
Hope this helps you out and Good Luck

This is what I see when I notice posts like this:

"Pick my parts for me so when I don't like them I can blame someone other than myself."

If you want a Cult or Fit frame, BUY ONE. Do you ride street? Get a shorter rear(smaller numbers) and steeper head tube (bigger numbers).

If you ride park (like box jumps and bowls and you air all the time) look for something with a longer rear (bigger numbers) and a more slack headtube (smaller numbers).

If you do both, find something in the middle.

That's a tuff one?
I started with a 20.5 tt felt a little small
Tryed a 21""tt i liked the feeling, but a little to big
Now at 20.75tt it feels just right
Maybe if you post a pic of yourself
We can match a frame to over you????

I don't mean it like that, it's just I don't know what's good and I need help

You won't have trouble with those brands.

What do you normally ride? Street? Park? Big moves? Jib tricks? Flatland?

What is your current bike?

Does it feel long or short?

What do you like about it?

What do you hate about it?

haha I laughed...

but seriously, get a Fit hoodbird frame it comes in raw and had a 21" top tube.
The frame is pretty tall and has a not too short rear.
