    He's going to strap it to his ankle, ok? That just made me think of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    Whatever you build, don't forget the carbon headset spacers.

    a good, strong lightweight frame to buy would be the Volume Ardelean

    You clearly have no clue what you're talking about. Almost everyone I know of that bought that frame has bent the rear triangle.

    have i ever ridden one...no.
    do i know anybody that rides one-yes.
    do they ride street-yes...therfore it can take the abuse of street (this persons actually pretty good. hes sponsored by 5ive bmx.)
    is it still in good condition and not have dents in it-yes.

    ive only heard good things about it. i like the companys view. i was going to buy one myself until i got a really good deal on an old general lee that saved alot of money of buying the endemic..especially when i feel like im at that point in my riding where i havent progreseed enough for it to be worth it to buy a brand new frame.

    I'm considering a "backup" bike of sorts. My daughter seems to want to race. She likes my bike. So I'm thinking of giving her mine, and upgrading to a better cruiser. After a little thought, and riding a 20" for 5 minutes. I realized that cruisers are the way for me to stay. Anyway, she wont ride forever, and may quit after the first crash. So I'll get my bike back, having a "backup" bike. Now, I just have to seach for a good cruiser for about $300 or less.

    Keep the cruiser, and get a 20" dirt jump bike. Relive your youth.

    I try not to think about that part. I just know that I can treat my Backtrail like the bikes I had as a kid. No worries about breaking the bike.
