Ive been in to BMX racing lately but am going to build a freestyle bmx bike
already have a great 3 piece crank, wheels, and handlebars
i dont want a really beginner frame because before i got in to bmx racing i was dirt jumping and freestyle street riding, so i kind of know what im doing. but nothing too expensive, either.
i know a bunch of years ago Standard frames were hyped a lot in the bmx magazines, are they any good anymore?
just looking for a solid frame to freestyle on when Im not racing. mostly street riding but possibly some dirt jumping(though i wont get the chance a lot, theres almost no trails i know of in south florida)
Standard would be pretty nice if they weren't overpriced by about $100, and if Moliterno wasn't so shady (from what I've heard) with warranties.
Look into a S&M, FBM, T1, or Solid.
S&M Dirt Track is from what i've heard a very good frame. Solidly built and strong heliarc welds on it.
It's called the S&M Dirtbike, and every frame on the market has TIG (heliarc) welding.
Tungsten, it's not just for lightbulbs.
S&M,FBM,FIT or solid for sure bro. solid makes some sick custom stuff if you got the money.
They gave you companys im giving you models...
S&M Black Bike
FBM PW Moto (Phil Wasson)
FBM Copone (Shawn Arata)
FBM Night Train (dont think its made anymore)
Solid Killing Machine or K.P Ripper (i dont think they still make it though)
T-1 Barcode (comes in two different sizes (euro with seatstay brake mounts) and (american with chainstay mounts)
T-1 Reuben (Barcode with different seatstay thingie and spanish BB)
T-1 Joe Rich I think that this is the same as the Barcode but with signature colors...
hope that helps...
FBM PW Moto...nice bike...really nice bike...really really nice bike
