    well all aluminium dents easy... if you do anything wrong with them..

    im currently riding a pista concept no dents, the paint scratch pretty easily ( nothing to care much). i do tricks, i pop alot with it, the only thing im realy scared about and i dont trust too much is the carbon fork...

    bmw or 07 madison. my madi has taken a beating. its been dropped thousands of times, jumps, stairs everything. not even tweaked out of alignment, no dents whatsoever, and the geometry is ok. not barspin-friendly though

    shiiiitttt
    i beat the shit out of my soma rush, so sturdy and stong. i am a mechanic too, so i see all kinds of messed up shit and frames but the rush nope.
    i would compare the soma rush to a bareknuckle. the only reason why in my opinion bareknuckles are more expensive is the deda tubing. thats it.

    Any frame made of 4130 should be able to take a good beating.


    If you have the dough to build up a BMW, get one. Otherwise any frame made of 4130 should do you well.


    I personally don't like the geo/looks of the BMW's but if i was a trickster I'd get one.

    wow. I am going to go ahead and assume that was sarcasm. Aluminum forks fail just as suddenly as carbon, without the fun splinters. I am sure Bianchi wasn't thinking of wheelies and stairs when it designed is pro-semi-pro level track bike. The fork goes swimmingly on velodromes.

    the aluminum was sarcasm

    i ride steel

    FBM Sword or Brooklyn Machine Works. If you can afford custom, Broakland. Nothing else is really made for it. All the entry level track bikes are the same, the Soma and the Surly are a little better. Pakes are garbage, I know a messenger who broke one behind the bottom bracket.
