New frame

I want to get a new frame that I want to use for street riding.

I haven't been on a bmx bike for 6-7 years, and I have an old GT mach 1 bike, but want to upgrade to something else. Any suggestions in brands?

Whats your price range, how tall are you, how much do you weigh, custom build or complete, are you hard on bikes?

We need to know all of these things before we can help you out.

1. Between $150-$250
2. I'm 5'8''
3. Weigh 145 lbs.
4. I'd have to say custom build
5. Semi-aggressive

1. Not to much in that price range that I know of, but hell, I dont know of many frames.
2. You'll be fine with a 20"TT up to a 20.25"TT.
3. you're light, no reason you should be worried about braking a frame so you can get away with something light.
4. Go to www.danscomp.com and look at frames in your price range and size.
5. Nothin' to say here other then you'll be fine with any full cromo frame.

Agreed, except the tt lengths, i'm the same height and used to ride a 20.75". It felt fine. Anything from 20" to 20.75" should be fine

If they still have any of the Sunday frames on sale, those would be a good choice.

Look for last years Sunday frame it might be on sale or close to your price range...
Any tt length from 20-2.75" would be fine. Top tube lengths are personal preference. I'm about 6 foot and i have a 20.75" I know shorter people with 21". The more legs you have the longer tt i would look into...

It sure looks like a nice frame...but if you knew it was out of his price range then why did you even post?

You should get your stuff from them if they are that close...
Support your (somewhat) local shops.

My parents don't want me driving that far yet because I just got my licence and the roads have been bad lately. Once spring comes I'll probably go up there alot to buy parts that I don't need because I won't be able to ride for a while.

I can make one tonight, find a picture of a gun you want on it.

For the picture of mine, I just google searched for Uzi, hit images, and found that one, then made it a silhouette, duplicated it, dragged it under for a shadow, changed the color of the top one, and added the text.
