How often did people crack/break those, I want the new Sergio Trueno, in stainless but that doesn't matter.... the NEW Fly's have "beefed up" (thickened) tubing according to the description on dans, so how do you think it should hold now, judging on the previous tubing thickness to whatever they have now, which I hope was a good bit more.

That frame would be going onto a new build I am thinking about and still piecing together (in my mind)
-Stainless... frame, fork, and bar.
-Black... stem, seat & post, cranks, pedals, sprocket, brake lever, brake mech, hub guards, spokes and hubs.
-Blue... Headset, grips, stitching on the seat, bottom bracket, rims, brake cable, and pegs
-Gold... chain
last but not least... tan wall 2.35 Ruben Rampera Tires

I could already see how it will look, and it looks good!

i will tell you what i know about fly frames and other parts.

i met a rider when i was on holidays and he was riding a Fly trueno. he got it for 247$ with a disccount because he snapped a Cromoly frame he had on a complete. when i met him, he was riding the fly trueno for 1 year, and the chainstays were so bent you couldn't manual properly, also, he had 2 cracks on the frame (seat tube welds area). he is not a really hard rider but he did all that in one year.
there is one rider i use to ride with when i go to skateparks, and he snapped the pedal boss weld of his 2012 dolmen cranks, he had them for almost one year.
i know three people who bought the fly proton, 2 of them snapped the frame, stem, cranks, bars and forks, and the other one, only the forks. (they all had to change hubs and more but i don't remember exactly)

this is all i know, I, personally, would never get any fly part, except the fly montaña bars, those seem to last long (i know 2 riding them and they have them for over a year).

The only Fly part I have is the Alta stem (OG not Alta 2) and it's been doing really well over the 2 or 3 years I've had it

Well last time I rode a fly, it felt pretty good in my opinion, I would not mind dumping a little over $300 on one, I am NOT RICH but I am getting over $3,500 from when I was hit by a car last year, the settlement check from the lawsuit which my dad won, he is a lawyer (does not make bank though), is closer to $3,700

so I think I am pretty well off with dumping 300 or so on a frame. I am taking into consideration everyones info by the way...

@OneGuyIlluminatiEye.... If I were to get a frame from any one of those companies.... it would be
Trail or Park v2 BSD Frame,
Sunday Broadcaster
S&M BTM
Fit Benny L, or a Marve if I could find one
I am pretty sure you can notice a trend (short rear ends)

Everyone always overlooks the Redline G7. Yeah, they only make one aftermarket freestyle frame so far, but it's a great all around frame, and it's probably stronger than a lot of today's frames. And you dislike the 13.40 cs length, but it's cs are right around 13.50-13.75. I can't wait to see the street frame they're making come out.

As for Fly frames, I'll pass, but I pass on a lot of frames.

I'd say pass. I rode two Tierras. one came apart at the headtube junction, and the second I sold a month or two after having it. I didn't want to risk it.
