Well I'm tired of the same frame for the third time.
Want something with some features.

S&M ATF- love the geo. nothing special other than the warranty
Volume drifter- love the geo ovalized chainstays. That's it. Don't know about warranty.
We the people clash- warranty and headtube junction and invest dropouts.

Those are what caught my eye. Basically anything you've had experience with that has a 75 head tube, 8.5 or less stand over, 13.5 and less chainstays recommend to me.

I loved my previous FBMs too, I feel you... This Wifi I'm on is fun as fuck and pretty close to that geo, I recommend it. Got mine for like 280 shipped and life time warranty off Albes, git one!

If not, of your options I like the WTP.

You were running The Take Ivy right, or was it the FBM Berzerker?

Honestly, I love investment cast dropouts. Tighten and re tighten the wheel, and there's still not a mark on them, just missing paint. I'm loving the WTP frames. I may get the new Cream when it drops. Idk. I have a few different frames I have to choose from like you do, haha.

Have a look at the Sunday Soundwave. Wave Downtube and Toptube, Box Chainstays, Chainstay Wishbone (I think), 41 Thermal Heat Treated and lifetime warranty.

Idk what it is man. Every Sunday I've rode just feels too bulky. It's weird I know but I can't spend almost 400 on something I can't sell for even half the cost

Some WTP Sleepless/Cream? If not I'd say get the ATF. I completely agree with you about the Sundays though.

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.
I got refs

I have been looking at the Soundwave, but just can't get myself to buy it. And that is a valid point as far as resale value as well. I'm at least going to wait to see what the specs on the new Redline street frame Gerber was testing earlier this year before I make a decision. I'm also torn between staying close to my current geo or going a bit shorter in the cs department.

I suck at making decisions. When I do they are impulse buys. It's a struggle

I resemble that remark, haha. I've gotten better at resisting, but, if I had the money to spend, I'd have five different bikes, maybe ten. If I won the powerball, Albes and Dans would love me, the UPS and FedEx guys would hate me, haha. Then I would open my own bike shop right down the street, and, as a business, it would be a failure, but I'd have great amounts of fun!
