BMXer to MTBer

HeyGuys,

My good friend used to ride BX and wants to ride again but I told him he should build a mountain bike. Theyre called free ride bikes right? Where can I find frames and parts for this? We wanna build something simple, single speed, used set of forks. Simple stuff, so its like BMXing for him. He can do all the **** the guys at crankworx do. Crazy right? haha

Thanks alot

Ty

Either let him build another BMX bike or have him look at a DJ. For frames, there's a ton out there. Blk Mrkt Mob, Dobermann Pinsher, Transition ToP, SuperCo Charger, NS Metropolis, USB Working Class Hero, DMR Transition, Tonic Fab Howie...the list goes on forever. For the fork, look at the Rock Shox Argyle, Fox 831, or maybe even a Marzocchi DJ1 or RST Space Jump.
