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.

I said tarck specifically; not track....

It is proper for tricks or tarck as the slang goes, as it's reinforced to handle the stress. In addition to geo....

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.

Agreed with getting a proper tarcking frame.

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