FSFG Complete

Is it possible to buy a complete bike built to handle the abuse from tricks and such for under like $600? I really don't have $1,000+ dollars or the time right now to build my own from scratch.

Thats what i was thinking too. I know there 'butcher' is more of a trick bike, but you can get a Scrambler V3 complete for 499 right now. Then you could do the jullian wheel upgrade which are a bit stronger i think and still be right around your price range of $600.

You could always just buy a 26" BMX cruiser and call it a day.

Yeah it is, but its only left in size small / colour purple. I guess if the OP doesn't mind that, not a bad deal at all.

I think people leave it out due to the picture of that bike folded in half.



This isnt the picture ive seen before but it is another shattered PK ripper. Ive just never seen a similar picture from an eighthinch or other brands.

Breaking your bike is a good thing. Mad street cred. Look at how hyped that guy is.

I've seen one broken-in-half PK Ripper in person, and several more on the webs. I have not a whole lot of trust in that frame.

Aluminum frames aren't meant for tricking and the overall design of the PK FG is aesthetically based upon the original PK Ripper BMX bikes.
