    Azonic Steelhead

    hey does anyone out there have an azonic steelhead? i'm really thinking about getting one but i'm kinda scared to get it without riding it. i'm about 6' 1'' and i ride alot of urban, drops stairs walls all that fun stuff, we're working on building/repairing some north shore here so i'll be riding that too, and i also attempt to dirt jump (i suck but i'm still working on that one). is this frame going to work for me? i'm on a small budget so it's about all i can afford. my main concern is the size. is it going to fit me? all other thoughts are welcome too. thanks for your help!

    For aggressive stuff, someone who is 5'9 will probably ride the same size as someone who is 6'1. My P.1 is about the same size as a Steelhead, and I'm your height. Smaller the better!

    I have a steelhead.
    I love it.
    I had a 5" black on it and it handled great, I now have a 6" sherman and it's still fantastic. I am 6'3" and I am riding the smallest. My knees come close to hitting the bars but never have, and has never gotten in my way at all really. I am running mine as a singlespeed, but I have friends that swap theirs in and out from gears and back all the time so it can be done. The steel is pretty phenomenal too. The tubing is so skinny and no decals is just badass. And they are so cheap I don't feel bad about doing stuff to it either. I painted my head tube blue, and was gonna repaint the whole bike white, but situation has changed since...anyway, it's a sweet ass bike.
