Vex is hi ten so that's a no no. The fit is also but it is an exception.

Maybe kink whip or liberty that's just my opinion though. Stolen wrap maybe idk

Once you kind of get an idea then you can start narrowing down.

I'd go with the Fit STR 1, or if you want brakes and a similar bike, the FIT TRL 1. They're FIT parts, and stock can hold up to a lot of abuse. They're very high quality.

I'd say the kink whip it's an awsome bike very comfortable light and has strong parts on it

Ehh. I don't really like the new paint scheme. Besides that the stats look almost identical to that of the '09 model. I'd say buy the '09 model, it has more colors available and is $25 cheaper.

I'd go with the Whip. It's lighter and has a few nicer parts. But yes the Whip, and the Gap are both nice bikes.

Jonnyb, don't double post. Also try to capitalize and punctuate. It makes it easier for us to understand and comprehend what you are saying. I fixed it for you this time.

Brendan, I'm not really sure, but I'm guessing it would be the quality of the steel. Hi tensile is a different, most likely weaker form of steel, than the preferred chromoly. Admin probably knows more about it than me, I'm just guessing.

Ok thanks
I read up on it
its basically the same as CrMo, but it's not as strong, so they usually have to use more steel but I'm light (120ish) so it shouldn't matter too much at this point anyway

Well the point of a strong frame, is not to hold up against the weight of the rider, it's to hold up against being slammed into the concrete. It should be fine, I'd check to make sure that it has a lifetime warranty, that covers what you will be doing.
