    Old frame weight

    I don't have access to a scale and I wanted to know how much an old frame weighs. My brother has an S&M black Sabbath frame that he wants to build a bike with. It has been in his bedroom for about 10 years. Where can I find out the weight. Also, will new bmx parts work with that frame or have they changed too much?

    Put up some pictures.

    I don't know the weight off the top of my head, but i'm sure you could e-mail S&M for specs and such.

    do you have a bathroom scale?
    if you do, use it.
    hold the frame and step on the scale...remember the weight (or write it down)
    put the frame down and weigh yourself...record this weight.
    subtract your weight from the weight of you & frame & that's how much the frame weighs

    or bring it to a bike shop

    Who cares what it weighs? It's probably around 8lb though. Build it up for a nice semi-old school tank to ride street with.

    S&M had/has the best names ever for their frames.

    I know. But I'm starting to hate being small. Not too many companys make 20.2/20.25 toptubes.

    If I ride a 20 I usually slam my legs into the bars.

    EDIT: Madman, I know. I've been considering it. If only I had that kind of coinage and my parents were oblivious to the fact of me riding.

    Possibly... or I'm just not used to a toptube that small. Or, the mini trail stem on my friend's bike doesn't have enough reach.

    Everyone has a Fly around here. Plus...i just don't like them. Especially that weird wishbone thing they have going on by the bb/downtube.


    I like all the Take frames. And i only know like one person that has one around here.

    The first-generation Sabbath was around 7 pounds, and the second (post-2001) was about 6-1/4 pounds.

    I like the Fly Mosca, but two of my friends have it and I don't want them to think that I am copying them... which I know they will think.

    In my opinion i would go for a Sunday.I got 1 recently
    A 21" toptube with a 13.75" rear end and it is a dream to ride.
    Obviously your choice of frame depends on what terrain you plan to ride.For me personally its Street,Street,Street.

    Next time you go out riding with some friends,ride each others bikes for a bit of variation.It is to easy to get used to your own bike and be content with it.
    Before i got my Sunday i was real happy riding a Gusset Streaker, 20.5" top tube with a 14.25" rear end,
    Now i have my Sunday frame i get more pop,can manual better and the overall feel of the bike is so much more stable.
    I think i will stick with 21" Toptubes.
    However i am over 30 and just under 6Ft

    As i said this is just my opinion
