    which frame?

    I'm either getting a koxx level boss or a zoo pitbull. I am going to be riding mostly urban trials. Which one will hold up to abuse better? the zoo comes in 1060 only. the koxx comes in 1040, and 1065. what size would be best?

    how tall are you, that will determine the length you want? LB also comes in 1100 if yo uare really tall. i say the koxx will be better no matter what.

    i say get the koxx just because the geometry is, in most mays, better for urban.
    how tall are you? i wouldn't suggest the 1040 to anyone shorter than 5'8" or 5'9". even then it would be a bit short unless you have really short legs.

    Kirby.. dunno if you've seen the post in the for sale section but i've got a Pitbull frame and a bunch of parts for sale CHEAP.

    For opinions though, you won't go wrong with either frame if they fit you. Unless you're over 6 feet or so.. 1060 will feel pretty good. That's the only reason i'm selling mine is to get a longer frame.. i'm 6'3'' and still feels a hair short. The wheelbase comes out to about 1070 with my fork on it.

    If I keep hearing about more riders in Baltimore i'm gonna have to move back... miss my hometown.
