I'm looking to get either new parts or a new frame, and I'm not sure what to get. I'm either going to get Eclat stream forks, a sunday freeze stem, fit faf tires, odyssey JC trailmix pedals and a gsport rollcage rim. If I decide to get a frame, I'll get a united Mothership v2, either purple/black, matt black or burgandy.

The frame I've got now is high tensile steel, not 4130 chromoly, which is why i want the new frame. I cant get the parts and the frame, it's one or the other.... anyone got any advice?

I have a 2012 Mafiabikes Clip2 (, with odyssey twisted pedals, amity basement bars and cult vans grips if that helps anyone.

Hi-Ten frames aren't the greatest. Replace the frame because it is bound to break then upgrade the parts as you can afford them.

Get the mothership first while you have the money, if you spend all your money on components and your frame snaps you're going to have to save up an extra $300 before you can ride again. The components can be replaced as they break.

Thing is though guys, I've only been riding 7 months and I'm not doing anywhere near big enough stuff to break the frame... the biggest stair set I've ever done is a 5 stair....
