Strengths: Handmade in AMERICA!
Weaknesses: It is tougher than I am.
I am not a BMXer, I ride cross country on a 29er. I built this Mamma Jamma so I could learn to stand up and sprint. My theory is; if I can flow 20" through sand and over roots, then I'll fly on the 29er.
This bike is awesome! It is strong like bull! But it does not weigh a ton. The BB is high and backend is long. It gets over logs great and climbs way better than I expected from such a tiny wheel.
I might learn to jump stumps and be a BMX punk yet!
Bike Setup: Pitchfork, Sun Rims, Profile hubs, 39:13, Schwalbe tires, Revenge brakes

Strengths: I have been riding dirt bike classics for 5 years now. It took me 3 years to kill my first. It survived through Brutal abuse (180 down 10+ stares, learning handrails, Brakeless Trails, and countless bails, first bike I flipped, whipped, flip-whipped, flared) It succumbed to barrel roles. The down tube completely detached from the head tube but didn’t end a light Minnie session. I am 6 foot 1 inches and scale in at 180lb. Dirt Bikes take an unimaginable beating.
Weaknesses: Geometry, the dirt bike never spun or whipped as well as other frames I set up. I attribute this to the lengthy back end and the super sized dropouts. The newer versions are better but still have the sluggish get-around. But this is a plus for trails, felt the best over 15ft + doubles. 990s on chain stays get ground down by the chain when running a 30 or less tooth ratio.
Fantastic frame, wish it was still around for beginners, it was the cornerstone of a bmx revolution. I still ride the dirt bike and love giving it as much hell as I can.There are better frames on the market but the dirt bikes’ a grade A value for people who are just getting into heavier riding. The frame will probably last through you, the little kid next door, and his ratty little friend before you get on a nostalgic trip and want to kill it yourself.
Similar Products Used: Various dirt bike models, it’s very much like a racing frame.
Bike Setup: I try to keep it under 30lb. 25t to 9t, primo hollow Ti, midways to vandero 2 front, profile ss mini back, odyssey forks, coalition stem front load, Martinez V bars, Coalition seat, profile gas peddles.

best bike i have ever owned. has great geometry, classic looks(who wants one of these ugly ass Y shaped things anyway?), is super stiff, and isnt out of the reach of most wallets. best bike out there to me. simply bulletproof. thats the bottom line
I'm an avid mountain biker already, but I'm going to buy a dirtbike soon. I'm just wondering, what are the differences in the way each machine rides? What are the differences in the riding experience between both vehicle types? :thumbsup:Read More »
I'm about to finish up a big job that I've been working on forever and am considering a 2 week or so roadtrip mid June to early July and was curious what some of your thoughts are on my currently very under considered course of action.
