    So I'm pretty sure that my next paycheck is going towards a FBM PW Moto built up mainly with Fit parts because they seem strong and a bit lighter than most S&M bars/forks/etc. (I realize it is the same company pretty much). Anyhow I want a strong, but light bike mainly for street with some trails and S&M's new bike caught my eye. Is a L.A.F recommended for under a certain rider weight limit (I weigh 180)? I'm fairly smooth, but how thin the area behind the B.B is has me a little worried being that I do case it now and again. Is the knew hardened material more than enough to compensate for the lighter weight? Anyone had any ride time on it? Thanks, Sam

    My good friend rides one, and he weighs close to 200 lbs. It should be fine for you as long as your smooth.

    That frame is awesome. The only thing that you should be aware of is the very steep headtube angle. Not a bad thing, just different.

    Oh man I've been looking at this online in various places, it makes me want to buy a new BMX.

    MMmmmm LAF...

    My current BMX is heavier than my Revell by a good few pounds. Lame.
