FBM Angel of Death

Hi, my cousin who was sponsored is now giving me his old FBM Angel of Death! He told me it is a heavy frame/bike. I just wanted to know how heavy this bike is. Does anyone know? Im 5'4" 117lbs if that helps. Thanks!

Probably around 7lbs.
It's a classic.

I'd take it and sell it. That frame is hard to come by and could fetch a nice price. I wouldn't ride it.

I heard this frame is unbreakable, is that true? Also i am going to lighten up the bike to about 28, because it weighs about 34 now. I figure i will change the seat, forks, bars, sprocket, and back wheel.

Lightening up a AOD is blasphemous. That's like taking a Warpig and putting Slam XLTs on it.

But, yeah, it's pretty much indestructable.

Agreed. If anything you should be trying to hit 40lbs with it. That would be a proper honor for it.

Says the one who doesn't have a bike. Try bunnyhopping a 34 pound bike all day. You wouldn't like it very much. But yeah, it's pretty worthless to put all light parts on that frame.

Who said I don't have a bike, my bike when I first got it was 31 and I put these heavy stock pegs on which would make it less than 33.

Something doesn't make sense here. You say you are a small Asian girl, yet you have no problem riding BMX with a 33 pound bike...

Mad arm strength. Probably not...

Edit: Dan's Comp says it's 31, if you were wondering.

It's a bunny hop, not a "j hop"
