Looks to be the more expensive one has a chromoly downtube VS. the cheaper one's fully hi-tensile steel construction.

However, I'd seriously consider saving up or bumping up your budget to find a complete that's fully chromoly as the metal for the frame, fork, and bar.

These bikes you found here aren't that bad, though. They have nice features like sealed bearings and 3-piece cranks made from chromoly, so add such features to your checklist when looking for a better bike.

I'm gonna assume somebody else from Vital will suggest the Eastern Bikes Shovelhead, so have a look at that bike, Static. smile

If u absolutely have to order a Ruption from there, why not add another $34 and get the Friction instead? At least you will have the whole front triangle made of 4130 Chromoly.

Personally, if I was on a low budget, I’d go with the Mongoose L100 instead. Full 4130 Chromoly thruout Frame, forks, handlebars, and cranks. Plus double-wall wheels.
