Hey guys,
I was wondering which one of these two completes is better:
Flybikes Proton (full CRMO):
http://www.flybikes.com/products/completes/proton
WeThePeople Reason (CRMO DT, TT, CS):
http://www.wethepeoplebmx.de/bikes/reason

The flybikes proton is full chromoly but I've also heared that they break really easily...
WeThePeople's are well known to be good but are they still good even if not full chromoly frame?
Both are in the same price range ($500)

I'd honestly probably go with the WTP even though it has a little less chromoly in the frame, but it does have double wall rims which will last longer for you. I don't believe the Fly has double wall rims but I could be wrong.

WTP does have a better rep too, and better customer service from what I've heard/read.




Are you able to get Kink bikes where you live? If you can, I'd check out the Kink Barrier.. Best of both worlds since it has full chromoly frame, forks, bars & cranks, fully sealed bearings including both hubs, and double wall rims. Plus it's the same price.

I would actually like to know how it holds up as I've read that they easily fall apart (last time I've read something like this it was the 2014 proton and it was written on this forum)
If you can let me know after a couple of weeks of riding it would be amazing

Thank you for your suggestions
Yeah im kinda able to get kinks but for ridiculously high prices... like if the Kink Barrier costs $500 off Danscomp, I would be able to get it only for $700+ from the resellers in here...

Upping this thread with another question:
What do you think about the Conway 2 by fitbikeco? http://fitbikeco.com/bikes-2015/conway-2/#
Is crmo front triangle and chainstay better than the wethepeople crmo DT, TT, CS?
I found it for less than $450

I like the conway 2. Both companies are good but I would probably go with the fit.
