not a chopper, i need the rake on the front to be the factory norm for bmx bikes, but because i modify them to race for speed, the longest wheelbase available would be nice. since i've always used bmx bikes for this i figured this would be a good place to ask. tech rules allow up to a 50" wheel base, although im sure no bmx bike has one that long. any help as far as who makes a frame with a longer than usual wheelbase would be great. thanx, fast eddie outty

an og holmes would have a pretty long wheelbase, long reaer end, slack head angle, reasonably long top tube. But if you turned one into a gravity bike I'd chop yer bollocks off.

i appreciate the advice, and i promise that if i find one ill leave the frame intact, just put on different hardware! i think what you bmx riders do on the ramps and in the parks is amazing, i wish i could do it, but what i can do is go really really fast! fast eddie outty
