    I received the Razzo frame as a Christmas Gift this past year. I built it up with parts I had and have upgraded some (mostly wheels). Don't have experience with the others. I would say that the Razzo will be the lightest of the three if that matters. You could drop weight from it just by switching out the wheels. Mine is below 26lbs and could be lighter with higher end parts.
