    I know a lot of bmx companies like odyssey and animal have them. Not sure about orange though.

    I don't ride BMX so I may be asking a daft question... Why are all the saddles pointing upwards?? Isn't BMX dangerous enough so you have to crush your nuts too?

    Basically so you dont rub your theighs when you do manuals, and it's comfier when you sit on it, more laid back because the bike is short. Your pals are never in danger because of it.

    Beutiful, A little small for me though, I ride a 20.1.

    And that color is deffinatly going on my list of options when it comes to powdercoat my frame, i'm not a fan of dark bikes.

    yeah, i tend to ride smaller frames because i'm more of a tech rider and i used to ride a lot of flatland, so i need more of a dual purpose bike.

    and that color is definitely beautiful. thanks.

    I also noticed your running a lower gear ratio, looks to be a 28-13 or 28-12. I guess thats because your also a techy rider to eh?

    I also want your front rim, I love Araya rims but I cant find any in town.

    Haha. No, I meant to look at old kid's bikes and recycle the housing. I wasn't making fun of BMX.

    Check out a LBS. I know some places carry derailleur cable with colored housing. Just buy a break line, cut the housing to the appropriate length and make a swap.
