Crank Bros. Stamp 1's! Not for street (obviously) but unreal for trails and transitions. super slim profile, massive footbed, crazy grip, and unreal bearing quality.

Maybe a Bulldog? The front of the frame definitely looks like a 90's GT race frame like a Speed or Power, but the stays and dropouts look really unique and Bulldog frames are the only ones ive seen with that look.

Added reply in a thread i cant order my new bike on source bmx why!!! 12/9/2020 1:18 PM

This. Barely any bikes anywhere. My local won't have completes til spring. Maybe try a used bike for now, Facebook marketplace, Letgo, Kijiji, craigslist, all those seem to be pretty strong in my area atm.

I don't get the whole online thing. Bike shops are the only way you can see and inspect a part in person before buying it, and they're the only place you can get proper in-person advice from an expert for free. And on top of that, the LBS is the perfect ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have you ever had your bike stolen? What happened ?! 11/27/2020 8:20 AM

I've been pretty lucky overall, I've only had one bike stolen. It was my first decent (for the time) bike and it was the kinda rare LHD version of the old Haro Mirra 540. I spent the weekend at my dad's place and left it with my mom and my sister. It ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is physical therapy really necessary 11/18/2020 1:01 PM

Yes it's necessary. I speak from experience. I did physio for my tib-fib and it healed perfectly. I skipped it when I broke my arm and it healed horribly, like twisty and loaded with arthritis. That said, I live in Canada so it was totally free. If it ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help pick my bike! 2/11/2020 11:18 AM

"unknown" doesn't help much, any chance of pics? By reputation, I think Fit and Subrosa would be the best choice of those brands. the Fit Aitken will work ok but it's designed more as a flowy trail bike than a street beast so the unknown fit may be the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is a 18.5 inch top bar to small for me 2/8/2020 12:34 PM

Yeah 18.5" top tubes are for letting kids get onto 20" wheels before they'd otherwise be tall enough. At your height, most people would run at least 20.5", if not 21"

https://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/sputnic/ Look at Sputnic. pretty rare frames, but that headtube is pretty distinctive. The stays look pretty close to older WTP and a few other brands but that headtube screams Sputnic to me. My old Sputnic Stratocaster had ... more »

Added reply in a thread $100 Giant beater 2/7/2020 9:59 AM

Can't go wrong for $100! Might be a little heavier than a modern bike but it looks solid. Have you thought about trying to find some of Giant's old MOSH parts to match it?

Added reply in a thread Please help 😭 Can anyone help identify this frame? 2/7/2020 9:56 AM

It's been painted, right? kinda covers up a lot of details. Definitely looks like a mid-range to high-end complete bike from maybe like 5ish years ago, The bridges on the stays and the shape of the fork looks like a Haro or Premium to me, maybe like ... more »

Yeah those threads look a bit gacked. You might be able to find someone with a tap/die set that could clean those up but 9/16"x20 is a pretty rare size, especially the left handed one for the other side. New plastic pedals are only like $20ish so new ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kink Volte restoration 2/7/2020 9:45 AM

From my experience, chrome and ano are pretty expensive and not usually worth it. I'd also say don't worry about the decals, they're gonna be too tricky to keep in good shape. Just soak the whole thing in paint stripper or sand blast it, then use primer ... more »

Added reply in a thread Alienation Products 2/6/2020 10:42 AM

Alienation used to be everywhere on mid-range complete bikes. The only thing I really like them for is decent quality rims at super cheap prices, but they're still best for budget builds.
