Radical frame for hardcore street thrashing. No compromise design with sick 14mm dropouts, BMX gauge 4130 tubing. Probably one of the strongest frames on the market.
Suggested setup: 14mm BMX hub, BMX cranks, rigid fork

Strengths: it's strong. really, really strong. reinforcements in the right places. sicke rim brake system.
Weaknesses: coating isn't up to par with the rest: not flexible enough, cracks easily in stressed parts of frame
I bought this because I was sick of dmr frames: I've had 2 sidekicks, both broke at the joint between downtube and headtube; the chainstays were also completely ruined from grinds, so badly that the entire rear triangle was out of angle; already after the 5th grind or so. not cool when having to install the rear wheel and line up the breaks perfectly. another withdrawal: the rear triangle would just bend open slightly when braking (using magura).
looking for another frame, I came across this one and immedeately noticed the reinforcements in the head/top/downtube area. fatter chainstays as well. sick rim brake ataachment system. just what I was looking for, it had like everything I hated about the sidekick. and it didn't disappoint me 1 second until now. best frame ever for me.
