So there's two frames on sale on amazon.

The Eastern Codec for $133.87 in 20.75, Acid Wash Raw
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0040LFT9M/ref=twister_B0040LHW6U?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

OR

The Eastern Journey Frame (Previous frame from the Codec) 20.75, ED Black for $139.67
http://www.amazon.com/Eastern-Bikes-EBJFR-Journey-Frame/dp/B003BNAL0C/ref=pd_sim_sbs_468_2?ie=UTF8&dpID=31s82D6t%2BiL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0TKV8MXRFC7S5NK3VDWV

Question is, although they are both featherweight frames, what may be stronger? the previous run (Journey Frame) or the next one (Codec Frame) ???

this. why couldn't you post this in the other thread? extremely ironic that you have a quote in your sig about choosing frames based on what people say on the internet...

I'm a fan of a light frame, but you gotta know that when you buy light stuff it's gonna die WAY faster. Both of those frames are about 4 lbs and unless you're real smooth and light, they aren't going to last for ages or anything. which is sad because a light frame feels sweet.

Plus, you have Mothership. Stick with the damn thing, it's fine.

Go with the Codec frame... Just because the way the brake set up... Don't like the seat tube on the Journey frame..... If you want a 4 lbs frame??? Look into a Standard or F- Bom frame???

I ran the Journey, and I loved it. Since then I had a Federal Lacey that was better for me. And now a Federal Twilight, which I haven't had a solid chance to ride yet due to snow.

But yea, both are good from my experience and friends who rocked the codec.
