    i don't know if there's been a topic about it already, but who has one and who likes it? who doesn't like it? i want a frame that i can commute on and also start doing some tricking. if you don't like the frame, what other frame would you suggest for this kind of riding? thanks!

    For tricks...it's a good choice. Either that, or a FBM Sword, which I prefer abit more.

    cool i'll look into both then.

    Yeah, for budget tricks the Cutter is hard to beat (and their decals are far more minimal and visually interesting than most cheap bikes). The FBM is a lot more expensive, but you can get them in three head tube configurations (1" threadless and 1 1/8" threadless or integrated), and they're made in the USA. Keep in mind that forks aren't included with either.

    The indefinite article "an" is not part of TO's vocabulary. (Sorry, I had to say it - I thought one day things would change.)

    Yeah, the Volume Fu Manchu fork is a really durable fork too.

    I hate to even mention the name Leader, but I had a friend that is part of a group of riders called Death Pedal in San Diego that got to try out their new trick frame for a promotion to show how durable it was for a month. I saw him jump off stairs and ledges with it, do all kinds of tricks, and even a bottom bracket grind with it. I dunno if anyone has any first hand experience with it, but it seemed pretty solid. The gusset was ugly as sin, though.

    Affinity has a nice looking trick frame too called the cyclone that includes the fork. The frame has a gusset, and a curvy seat tube if you're into that sort of thing.

    Actually, the grammatically correct place for it would be in front of "FBM" --- "an FBM".

    I also said it because he consistently uses "a" in place of "an". Everytime.

    a + singular noun beginning with a consonant: a boy; a car; a bike; a zoo; a dog
    an + singular noun beginning with a vowel: an elephant; an egg; an apple; an idiot; an orphan
    a + singular noun beginning with a consonant sound: a user (sounds like 'yoo-zer,' i.e. begins with a consonant 'y' sound, so 'a' is used); a university; a unicycle
    In some cases where "h" is pronounced, such as "historical," use an

    This has gone too far. It was a joke.

    But the point in this case is: an + singular noun beginning with a vowel OR A VOWEL SOUND (such as in FBM, i.e. eff-bee-em).
