Seshin S***hawk V2.

I'm looking at buying one off a guy on BMX-F. I was just wondering how good of frames they are and if I should take it. It's also a 21" TT and I'm about 5'7" or 5'8". Would that be too long?

Edit: $135 for frame, wedge mod, and seatpost.

that's a good deal, but I would look at it before buying it. (to make sure it's not cracked or something)

I can't look at in person, but I could have the guy send me more pictures of the welds and whatnot.

I've seen pictures of it, it's a really nice looking frame, I would just ask for more details.

But I've decided, I'm going to just ride the hell out of my bike until it dies. F it.

I'm about 6', and i still feel like my 21" tt is a bit long, in the future, if i get another frame, i may go for a 20.75.
I think you should look for a smaller frame personally.

And one that hasn't been cut for wedge mod would definitely be a plus. Unless you are slamming your seat, it's not going to work very well

I am about 5'7'' with a 20.5" frame and 53 stem and it is pretty much pretty maybe a tad too long.

Yeah, I'm not going to worry about getting a new frame now. When I do eventually get one, I'm just going to get a new one, one that I know will fit. After a lot of thinking, I really don't need one, so I'm just going ride my bike the way it is, only replacing stuff that is needed. I think the first thing I'm going to get is my wheel, then forks and headset, and then cranks with a sealed BB.

Nahh. I gave them back to my dad for his bike. I know bikes aren't all about looks, but I didn't want to ruin the chrome by getting them powdercoated white. Also, my stock forks were about the same weight anyways. I'm not worried about them right now. A wheel is the first thing on my list.
