I am looking to build up a DJ/Urban rig. I am lookin at both a Azonic Steelhead and an 2004 Azonic Evolution II. I would like to run my DJ II that's off my big hit. I will start out with it at 150mm then maybe get a travel change kit to 110mm. Any tips. I can get a deal on the Evolution for around 200. Any tips?

Oh yeah...

I am 5' 7'', and weigh 135 lbs. I would like to use it for urban/dj/slight dh. I know the steelhead is brute but I would like to cut the weight if possible. Strength is obvioulsly a big concern, I don't want the head tube to snap or anything.

I know where to buy them and how much, that is not the issue it is if the Evolution is strong enough. I would get a rumble but that is a little more than sub 200 price. Cambria has the rumbles but not in my size. Any suggestions on which of these two frames?

Rumble

I talked to a guy that found a flaw in the Rumble frame by breaking two in the same place due to the lack of gusseting like they have up front. They usually go for 430, they have some on ebay for 210 from cambria but not in my size. I am going to wait and see what happens there, though I believe I am going to go with a Steelhead, they seem way too strong and solid. How would something like these ride with a 150mm? Thanks

Yeah that's where I saw them, but they don't have a medium. I searched google looking for reviews and found one by a guy that broke two rumbles in the same place.
