Because of where the Brake Mounts are located i am almost 100% sure its a Race frame. You almost never see upper seat stay mounts on a Street/Park/Dirt frame. They are not Fly forks either, because of the drop out shape & i am also almost 100% sure Fly have never offered Chrome Forks. They just have a Fly sticker on them haha. I'm trying to get a better look at the photos to see if i can help you out on any of the parts.

Let me try to get a little better picture of the forks. see if i can get rid of my flash being so bright.

|

6/23/2013 4:45 PM

There these pictures are alot better. Hopefully you can find out what kinda forks they are. The thing above the forks says fsa and my headset is yst or something i think.

I thought the frame was DK Flux Frame Because it looks like it expect for the brake things. there is no grey dk racing frame. Because the paint on my bike looks like it came with it. New.
Also my dropouts on my bike dont look like the DK Racing Dropouts.

whats the compression bolt for the forks look like ?

|

6/23/2013 4:58 PM

Yeah they're not any fly forks, Fly doesn't make chrome parts at all which is why I asked. In one of the pictures they looked like fly three amigos forks but they're not. The frame looks to be an older stock DK because of the standard headset, I'll check.

6/23/2013 5:21 PM

Yeah it's a standard headset for sure. Not sure on the forks but I'm assuming they're older.

I still think its a good bike anyway but. I was just curious about it. You still think if i ever resold it could i get my money back for it. I paid 200 dollars for it. and i have 170 dollars in it. also what should i upgrade from what you have seen on my bike?

Yeah maybe, a lot of people aren't too picky on buying used bikes because they're getting into the spoty usually. I'd maybe get a new frame and forks. Standard headsets are really out dated and annoying as fuck from my experience haha. Just buy new parts as you get money and you'll have a custom. And I like the fly stickers on your forks, that's my favorite fly logo haha.

Try to find used stuff, otherwise it'll be pretty expensive. Check on here, I bought most of my bike from the for sale section haha.

Yeah just upgrade. Yeah if you want a new bike and got 350 you could buy a new used custom. That's what I payed for my first bike.
