    have had close and prolonged contact with speciments of all except the BT Raven 5.0, it hasn't been out long enough to form a decent judgement but I'll give it a go based on my observations.

    Strongest:
    Koxx Levelboss
    Bt Raven
    Echo Pure
    PlanetX Zebdi
    ^ ^ Weakest

    thx for the answer !

    any other advice? anyone else?

    n0n0 but it's because one of my paranoia is to break a frame ! ;) it cost a lot for a student ;)

    those are the 4 frames i hesitate to buy

    i would strongly reconsider the zebdi mk6.....id tie it for 1st w/ the koxx, the pure ive seen snap by a smaller guy than me, doing smaller moves, smooter, and the raven i dunno

    1. Level boss is far ahead of everything else in strength (you can even land on the downtube pretty hard and it won't dent), it will probably last you years longer

    2. Pure seems to hold up - haven't ridden myself

    3. Raven and Zebdi : I broke a zebdi in 8 months of beginner riding and I've seen BT bikes dent very easily

    its hard to say. as far as im aware no BT RAVens have broken but not neally as many has been sold. As far as preference goes i would prefer a pure to a koxx, they just ride nicer. However when i got my BT i love its geometry. HOw long have you been riding?

    about the downtube levelboss thing: that is toughness, not strength. toghness has to do with dents and scratches, strength has to do with cracks and snaps. also, there was a tra vid where he did like a 6 ft drop straight to downtube on a pure, no prob.

    I'm partial to the BT, but at the moment I'm on a Pure . All bikes will dent at one time or another. A local rider just took his Planet X out last week on a ride. The downtube snapped about two inches in front of the BB shell. Never owned a levelboss, but they're pretty popular here, and poular things become that way for a reason most of the time, and that reason is a good reputation of course!! Any of these bikes should be a nice choice, just get the one YOU like the most

    I think its more due to the koxx team riders. Monty were popular, but i doubt that was because of reputation for strength. That being said they are strong frames ;).

    If you mean in tra echo vid 3 wen hes on the bench and he miss's his gap.

    If you notice his feet automatically fly off the pedals and land on the ledge he was wanting to gap and his frame doesn't even hit the ledge....

    that's definitely not a 6ft drop. i think he's referring to the drop/gap to that concrete barrier.

    level bosses are strong frames.
