New BMX build

This is my new BMX bike. I replaced my S&M Next-gen Dirtbike frame and fork, and my 48 spoke wheels.
The new BMX stuff is made much stronger and lighter these days.

Frame: Metal Dagger
Forks: Federal
Wheels: Primo Balance

Lots of other old school **** from my dirtbike.

This whole bike weighs about as much as my S&M frame/fork from the late nineties.

Forks are more like a component than a part of the frameset for bmx bikes.
Most people are loyal to a certain company and it's rarely the same as their framebuilder.

Nice, I've been thinking of getting back into DJ/street. I picked up a Dave Mira 540 air for $25 over the weekend to tool around on a bit. I'm going to build a BMX bike this spring and get back on the track for the first time in 10 years

I have a challenger frame with v-brake mounts if you're interested in building that for racing. It's a 24".

I plan on racing again this year also.

IMO: You should take the Haro to the recycling center and get the scrap money.

Thanks for posting that on 5 different threads. I wouldn't have looked if it was just on one.
