So long story short , my frame has a standerd headset , right now I am running a Mechanik STI (Standerd to Intergrated) headset so I could upgrade my stock forks to Primo Strands ( I 100% recommend them if you are thinking of getting them back to the point) , and I also have a Nitrous Double Shot Cassette Wheel which is bent and it is trued perfectly , so I was wondering should I upgrade my frame to a Failure Maniac or should I get a Profile Mini laced to a G-sport Birdcage. Decisions Decisions any help ?

personaly i think you should do wheel , its not like the wheel is gonna get any better or stay the same but only if you have a ok frame now

I was thinking that I mean its not like I'm going to crack my frame ( now that I say that I probably will ) and I could really get messed up if I land wrong on this wheel.

Well if its perfectly trued and bent then it isnt perfectly trued.... Back to the point, get both, save longer and wait til you have enough for both. If that is not an option, get a slightly cheaper (on sale) frame and get a new rim and get it laced to the hub.

No the rim itself is bent like no matter how trued it is the rim is bent , and I would have to buy both with my own money or wait until Christmas for one or the other .

Do you mean as in the side walls or do you mean the wheel has egged, as in gone oval shaped?

and unless you just ride park i wouldn't go with a profile. Yes they have great engagement and are smooth. but so is a primo Mix (Not the remix) but the profile isn't really meant for street abuse or trail riding. Please someone don't tell me that the profile can have ceramic parts so they would be stronger because ceramic is only strong when at extreme heats.
Just wondering what BB does your frame run?

awww okay that's understandable, yeah go for the wheel and for the frame just checking to make sure that you didn't have the old unsealed us BB because that would change it to swap the frame out before the wheel because i hated those soo much.
