    New Frame ?

    Well, I was going through my old spare parts stuff and I came across just enough parts to make a pretty decient park bike. but I need a frame to match that.

    I am considering 2 frames, bolth of them are cro-mo.

    Frame 1: KHS DJ100 {$69.99 plus S&H}
    Frame 2: Azonic Steelhead {2005 Pro XL 22.5" toptube $139.99}

    thing is it has to be V brake compatable.

    but there is one more peice. on ebay, there has been a guy selling the DJ100 complete bike for $299.99 so that would definatly save me some cash ? I would be getting decient enough parts for park. but at the same time, I could get a BMX for about the same price.

    so the options are either; buy a BMX (true actual park bike) Buy a steelhead (and when park season is over for me (summer) would be able to use ot for more fun stuff) Buy the KHS complete bike (would save me putting crappy parts on there and the stupid struggle of building a bike) now theres two more options too. buy the super cheap frame only KHS100 because it would be not a big loss of money and also it would probably only cost me $69.99 to build.

    or of course the last option. I could save up a lot of cash and buy something like the GT ruckus UF with a euro BB and geo designed around a 80mm fork for $699.99.

    there also is the option of completly parking out my P.2 but I know I will miss the stupid gears on that bike might possibly like it more SS though.

    I dunno, I'm stuck in a wierd rut Help me out ? What would you do in my situation ?

    thanks for your help.

    I think you need to figure out what you want and stick with it.

    for park i would seriously just get a BMX bike....either a 24 or 20. you will be able to seriously do so much more with one and you won't pay as much. if i had a park to ride, and needed a bike for it thats probably what i would do.
