    Aluminum Frames

    Does anyone know of a company that makes an aluminum frame with freestyle geometry as opposed to race style? Thanks.

    No, because aluminum frames are absolute garbage for freestyle, with the possible exception of flatland.

    Yes, I understand the general opinion is that aluminum is not good for freestyle. However, given the number of dirt jumping mtb bikes available in aluminum, I was wondering if any bmx company was using it for bikes other than race bikes.

    Good mountain bikes or walmart mountain bikes?
    I think you will find it incredibly hard to find an after market BMX frame that is aluminum and made for free style.

    Just curious, why do you ask? Hope you don't plan on doing any free style bmx with an aluminum frame. I would rather have one of those UK bike co *** frames (and they were so bad they went out of business)

    Personally, my recent build topped out near 29lbs. So, weight is not a big issue. What I was curious about was if any company was doing any freestyle frame development with aluminum or for that matter carbon. Apparently, they are not, or at least they are not talking publicly about it. Thanks for your posts.
