I was going to get a new hardtail frame and just need to know everyone's opinions on these two frames that I've narrowed it down to. Like which has better quality, and geometry for street, park and dirt jump?

NS Suburban
Weight: 5.3 lbs.

Black Market Riot

Suburban for sure,
lighter, cheaper, and is almost the
same geo as a mob. Plus you can run
a normal headset, not intergrated.

Yeah, I was looking at all the geo and the prices and everything and the Suburban looked like the better bike and at a better price.
I was just looking for opinions of people who ride them, but I think I'm leaning toward the Suburban a lot more than the Riot.

I reckon that the complete setup of the Black Market is crap
compared to the Sub.

Subs cheaper and better look in all for me.

i got my suburban quite recently and i'm loving it!!!
i can do things on it that i couldn't on my mongoose thunderball like 180s and stuff like that.
so i would recommend the sub.

i actually take that back i just rode the ns today and it feels kinda wierd might be the difference in the builds though

get the ns suburban, its great for chucking round. (not literally lol)

i would get the riot it has the same geo as the mob and intergrated headsets are lighter and better

Well, the integrated headset doesn't make the frame lighter cause the NS Suburban weighs 5.3 and the Riot weighs 5.7.

Also, I was concerned because I am 6'0 ft. tall and the Riot is only available in a 22" top tube length at the longest and the Suburban has a 22.25" top tube length. Would it really make that much difference in the ride?

well if you want a really light frame then wait until the 09 ns capital comes out it ways something like 4.6 lbs
