    Hi all, still a new member here and I wanted to ask the forum about the PB1. It seems like there aren't too many for sale out there after they have been discontinued. I recently saw one for sale and was thinking about buying it. Then I also saw a new Penny.
    I'm a big Xmetal fan like most of you. My collection started with the Romeo 1. Since joining the forum, I've added 2 juliets; xmetal and black carbon frames. Looking to complete the line with an XX, Mars, and Penny.

    Do I get the PB1? Or the penny? Which one will be harder to get in the future? I could always get the PB2. Any comments would help.

    Thanks!

    Depends on personal preferene. PB are around a little more often than some metals. I say go rare first.

    It'll be a long time before they're making titanium alloy sculptural sunglass frames again. But that's just my opinion.

    Personally I would like to have a PB but there are most likely a hundred other pairs I would rather have. Go with the metal!

    I would rather have a penny than a PB1

    The Penny it is. Didn't really like the Rootbeer Color of the PB. The shop is holding it for me to pickup this afternoon. Also, they had a stash of new nosebombs. I guys I'm taking it all.

    Thanks Guys!
