Flatland...? If not, S&M or Kink, get a frame from there, and you're good.

The problems with integrated headsets don't apply to bmxs a great deal, for starters our frames are typicaly steel and secondly our forks steerer tubes don't flex that much.

As long as we're on the topic of frames, can anyone guess what frame weighs 2.2 pounds and is currently being tested by riders?

Umm.. a frame that light pretty much has to be a carbon frame, but, I am probably wrong...

Personally, I would get a Macneil frame, but that's just because my first BMX bike was a Schwinn and that was back when Jay Miron was still riding for them.
