lol.

i bet my bike has been through more than 90 % of stunt bikes out there, and FI has saved mine everytime. even a 90-100 MPH highside on the track, with NOTHING BUT THE FI SLIDERS.... which is another awesome point on FI, you can remove the cage and just roll with sliders.

the fi cage hoop is only good for low speed crashes, high speeds will cause your bike to flip over on the forks, ask vandals and marcus.

I've always rocked FI cages and have had no problems. Except on my gsxr a few yrs ago, but he's changed the design on those since then.
Have heard good things about SI too.

I've seen more fi cages wad up than si or 905. You can't have one single point that takes the impact or something will break. I'm not sure how that guy split chromoly in half but that would definately be a first that I've seen.

FI and SI are made out of the same metal... what seperates the two are the welds and the design for stuntriding there isn't a better design than what SI has to offer. Stunt on your FI for 4 years and then come back and talk to me, bitchez!

Matt youre excluded from this conversation because youre gay and lived in SF

haha, well SI takes care of me and I like dealing with honest hard working people.

I would never post up a pic some random squid breaking an fi cage because all cages break or give sooner or later. Your talking about 1 person out of only knows how many. I'm glad you saved some money and got a good deal I just hope fi works while you learn to stunt cause you will beat the out of it and yourself.

jordo will defend si for life,NO MATTER WHAT.i have had both cages on two f4i's and i would have to say that the si cage works great becuase its solid,but i did bend 2 of em therefore having to replace them both times.i have been rockin my fi for a while now and i would have to say that i like fi better becuase if you break a part,you dont have to get a whole new cage,you can just get the part that broke.also the slimmer look and not so bulky cage makes my bike look better in my opinion.but both work fine for me.guess its just what style you like, more than the hold up.that is for parking lot use of course.never went down with either going over 50 so yeah.....
