Next Gen Holmes...

Yes, I realized there are many threads about this, but none of them talk about the aspects of it. What do you think about the frame, as I may have an oppurtunity of getting one.

I'm in love with s&m products. No matter what it is they make it just works. I rode with a guy years ago that had the original holmes and he beat the poo out of it. It was a very nice frame an at the time I had no idea what to look for in a bmx frame. We rode street and dirt jumps.

Flash forward to today and I have a ng dirt bike. I've beat the crap out of it. It doesn't brake it asks for nothing from me but more riding. On the downside, it's a pig.

As awesome as that frame was, it's been obsolete for half a decade; if you want a strong, seven-plus pound frame, though, check it out. Don't expect to run 14mm axles without taking a Dremel to it, though.

In other words, I'm probably not going to break it... which is a start.. or I could get a WTP 4 seasons for about the same price... whatcha think?

Here's an idea, wait more than ten minutes when waiting for a response.

How much are you planning on spending on either of these frames?

One, I've waited a few hours, check the times. Two, both are on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/BMX-S-M-Next-Gen...QQcmdZViewItem
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ayphotohosting
... and i can get both for about the same price.. Which do you think is the better deal?

I'd take the Dirtbike; I've seen way too many Four Seasons break.

But, I'm only 14 years old 5'5'', 120.. the bike has a 21'' tt.. which is a bit large for a kid my size.. and I don't think I'm really going to break it.. unless I do something pretty stupid..
