725 vs. Fuji Obey and Affinity lo pro

I am currently riding a leader 725, but would rather have something else because I am primarily riding on the streets. I was looking at a Fuji Obey frame set for sale for 375 which i fairly like because it is a lugged frame but am not sure if it is worth it. I am also contemplating in getting an Affinity lo pro because it is a steel frame, like the way they look and feel. I am not so sure which one to lean with because i could invest those 150 on parts for the Fuji or go for the lo pro. I am also up to suggestions for a frame or frame-set, those were just two I had in mind that could also be used for the track which I intend to do once the weather clears up.

I currently ride a Lo Pro and had an Obey in the past before it got crushed. Of the two, I'd recommend the Obey. The Lo Pro has a weird geometry and comes in limited sizes, making it not ideal for many.
