Dude, Bro, Dude, Bro....It is not EVEN close....

Air 9. Not because of the color, but because it's an Air 9. :thumbsup:
Air 9 not only because it's an Air 9, because it's Kermit Green!

EMD for the 853 Steel. Color is a don't care.
EMD = Aluminum

MCR or SIR = Steel.

Otherwise, I agree with everyone else...Air9 because its a better frame for the same price.
I already told him to crunch the numbers on my build for the air9.... Thanks for all the input...

Doh! I obviously made an error there. Would still vote for the steel 853 MCR frame. Aluminum hard tails can make great bikes, just prefer steel or even Ti.
