Frame Failure Failure Amuerte brakeless frame. raw 4130 with gloss clear coat and clean graphics. No brake bosses, Compact dropouts. Spanish BB
Fork SNAFU At 1 lb. 15 oz., the new SNAFU UL Race fork is the lightweight leader.
Handlebars SNAFU Jeremie Infelis' new signature bar from SNAFU is ruling. Big, light and comfortable, and in a bunch of cool colors.
Bar ends SNAFU Alloy or plastic... take your pick.
Stem SNAFU Morgan Wade's Captain stem is the shit.
Grips SNAFU EVERYBODY is into Dave Mirra's Mirracle grip from SNAFU. Try it and you will be, too.
Headset FSA Not as sweet as Campagnolo or King, but good enough for 90% of all the BMX bikes that feature integrated headsets.
Cranks SNAFU Mayweather, baby. Pound for pound the lightest, strongest crank in the game.
Spindle SNAFU 19mm 48-spline hardened 4130 chromoly with SNAFU Spanish BB
Sprocket SNAFU This bike is either a 30/11 or a 25/9… I can't remember which.
Pedals SNAFU Plastic is where it's at for now (and our plastic pedal drops Decenber), but low-profile alloy pedals will take over when the plastic fad shatters next summer. Watch for the SNAFU Anorexic pedal soon.
Brake levers None Again, we'd run brakes, and we'd use SNAFU C-Levers. They work, they're affordable, and our new colors are rad
Brakes None
Detangler None If this bike had brakes, you KNOW we'd set 'em up with Astroglide cables and a Mobeus detangler.
Brake cables None
Brake accessories None
Seat SNAFU You gotta love our new Love Seat. Really streamlined, nicely padded, and available in four new styles.
Seatpost SNAFU Our Conrad clamp and J-Bar post are simple, lightweight and super reliable. In case you didn't notice, we're not a fan of the Pivotal system. It's an awesome design, but it's still not lighter than our shorty J-bar post and Love seat with superlight foam.
Seatpost clamp SNAFU at 19 grams, our Conrad clamp is nearly lighter than a brazed-on clamp with captured nut and bolt. When you strip our seatpost clamp, you just throw it away. Try that with an integrated seat clamp.
Front rim Other The grand prize bike shown here has Alex Supra-J 36-spoke rims F/R, With the back rim C/P in case you win the bike but want to run brakes some day.
Rear rim Other The grand prize bike shown here has Alex Supra-J 36-spoke rims F/R, With the back rim C/P in case you win the bike but want to run brakes some day.
Driver/freewheel Other The SNAFU Stout cassette comes with a one-piece 4130 driver.
Front hub SNAFU Our Lite hub doesn't follow the aero road bike trend. It's just a simple, low-flange, 10mm sealed bearing hub with big 17mm axle nuts. You don't any more or any less.
Rear hub SNAFU We offer the Stout cassette in LH or RH drive, 9- or 11-tooth, and one anodized color: black. The axle is hollow to reduce weight, and the hub flange on the non-drive side is machined to protect spoke heads.
Front tire SNAFU SNAFU team riders prefer the Sterly in the rear and the Sanford in the front for street. For dirt, it's the Malcolm rear/Knob Job front. Our Dirt Box is old but still a favorite among pure trailer riders.

Pegs SNAFU SNAFU Hex shorty pegs simply rule. Light, fast-grinding, and durable.
