Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Not on an SE draft LOLOLOLOLOL...

I would personally save enough for a proper tarck frame.... perhaps an SE PK Ripper? As SE seems to be liquidating them for perhaps a successor.

PK Rippers are the worst, and are not proper for tricks and will not be able to handle the stress. They're made out of aluminum and there's been many instances of people snapping them. But TS, you should save up for a proper trick frame. Like Prind0 said, you should check out tricktrack.org

OP, yeah, definitely better off going to TrickTrack forums. A lot of useful information especially as of recently the popularity of going from 700s to 26s. Sounds like you should be fine but I'm not sure what size tire you can run in the back to compensate for your lowered bottom bracket height and how long your cranks are, you might also have to do some crimping if you haven't already but they(at TrickTrack) would be more helpful and knowledgable than I.

Exactry; that's why they're so cheap!

Agreed with getting a proper tarcking frame.

Such a product like the Leader Shadow: http://www.iminusd.bigcartel.com/pro...adow-pre-order
Clearance for big tire sizes is a plus in the tarcking world.
