Affinity Lo Pro? Or the Factory Five F5100?

I have been thinking about the two, yet I can't choose which one.

I just did a simple image search, the F5100 looks just like a old C Dale. The Affinity looks really good though

K sooo thing to look at:
1. F5100 is aluminum, Lo Pro is steel
2. F5100 has much more sizes
3. F5100 has a nicer fork IMO
4. Lo Pro has colour options, and dat Money Green $$$$$$$$

I'd go for the steel frame, you're probably riding on street anyway. But this is my opinion, I hate silver, and just love that green now. I'm also colour blind, mind you.

You should start another threat with "Affinity Lo Pro" in the title.

Just FYI, the Factory Five F5100 is the same frame as the Colossi Al Colossione; both are made by Colossi. Not sure where you live but you may want to see if you can fine the Colossi cheaper.

You should steer him to one of your frames instead of belittling him, or maybe I don't understand the younger business mentality. Maybe it is cool to do that, bro.
In the market for some nice single speed parts and looked at your site, then looked at your posts, no dice for this dude.
For the OP, Factory looks nicer.

Bros.

OP, pick whatever best fits what you want. I have a Lo Pro and I like it, but you should keep in mind that they have weird geometry and only come in a few sizes, so you may not be able to get one that fits you well.

Younger business mentality? I'll be 41 in August.

Because you obviously missed it, the dude started about seven threads asking the same questions, which is what I was responding to back on April 4th. Also, I don't need to "steer" anyone into doing anything. Aside from being a shop owner, I'm also a person who isn't thinking about work 24 hours a day.
