    Wasn't really something I'd throw money at. More a case of throwing out an idea I thought was uniqueish; I knew they already had an SS Pugsley back in the day. I didn't realize that they were already making the fixed-gear from jump.

    Kind of cool it's a se trick frame. I'm guessing the extra triangles are for more strength.

    I think the main reason it is like that is because it's modeled after the Quadangle.

    Yeah of course it's modeled after it but why did they do that design to begin with? You think they did it just for the hell of it?

    are you kidding...one of the greatest bmx frames? the question should be...why did it take them so long to build it into a big bike frame?

    It took so long because fixed gear freestyle just got big in the past year and a half so i'm sure they did it when they felt like there was a market for it.

    so your real objection is that you perceive that frame is for fgfs?

    sorry fellow bfssgers...this is the time to be posting a gif, right?

    Yes a se frame that has 14mm dropouts and a mid bottom bracket with a fork that accepts pegs. Yes I think that frame is for ssfg, and all the builds I have seen of it were built for ssfg. Oh and here it is on iminusd in the FGFS section. http://iminusd.com/fgfs/

    The first fixed gear I ever rode was a pugsley. It was awesome.

    Redpear,

    That is a very cool idea. I've had the chance to ride SRAMs 2-speed hub and I kept freaking out everytime I backstroked the click to shift.

    I'm assuming that at some point, someone will come up with a Freewheel-less 3 speed option that utilizes Di2 technology.

    It's in Deutsche, so bring your dictionary or your BF Deutsche translators.

    Are they out of business I wonder? It reads like they are closed indefinitely.
