Frame design... which do you prefer??

I am looking for public opinion on which design is more appealing.
Our rigid frames are built with either a double loop rear section or a standard curved tube top section with a loop lower. Which one would you prefer??

I second that.

It has a nicer flow to it.

Fenders seem to look better. I think the one on the left would need a fender much larger than the tire to look good. My opinion

Thumbs up Cartel Frame Design

Cartel Frames Cartel Frames

I think the hoop design is much better, it flows nice. Check out Cartel Customs rigid frames. Very Nice design.

The one on the right for me. Looks like you would need to space the fender or use a way wider fender than the tire would need if you used one on the left.

Edit: didn't mean to repeat Poverty's post, I just replied before reading the thread.

Sancho, maybe pushing your stuff in another manufacturer own thread and forum is not such a great idea. Just saying.

I too, like the one on the right. That's the one I'd be looking at.

I really don't care for either of them due to the rear hoop stagger. It looks way to out of poportion for my liking. A small offset is alright but it appears, to ME, to be to much on both.

And I like less boths tranny plate design or lack of it. Doesn't look as if much design/thought went into either of them.

I kinda like the frame sancho posted. Although it is not 1 of the choices.

I agree with paco about the stagger but if I had to choose
It would be frame on right.
I dont like the whole back end of a frame welded on
when it could be bent and made into more of an
integral part of the frame. more room for weld
looks more solid to me.

just my .01 (canadian dollars here)

I was never crazy about any hoop style frame.
