So I have a Sunday primer, and I have gone through almost every part on the bike except the bars and the frame, minus a few others like the cranks and such. Was wondering if there was a decent street frame (21’ TT) that is around or under the 200 dollar mark. It needs to be full chromoly, have gyro holes pre-drilled, and brake mounts. If anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear. I also looked at this frame by Blank it was called the Grizzly V2 and was wondering if theat would be any good. Thanks guys!

Check out gypsy bikes. They look pretty rad for a budget frame

Ok thank you guys, I’m not currently on the market for one but just need to see what works in case of failure with my curren one. How do you suppose I afford a 300 dollar frame if I’m only 15?

Used. Like I recommended, there are great (hardly) used frames available (the Soundwave for 175 delivered) Gotta keep your eyes open.

Yeah... I get that (congrats btw... For a split second, I toyed with the idea of snapping it up too!). I was just trying to explain that he didn't have to spend $300 to get a top quality frame.

Thanks man! I'm super stoked!

And to the OP, yeah listen to Mishinn and go with a used frame... you can find some pretty good deals! Like I just picked up that almost new Sunday Soundwave for $175 shipped... so you can find some good stuff buying used...

Check with vital member "Hatebreeder". Honda just bought that Soundwave from him. He has stuff for sale a lot & may have something available. In fact, I'm pretty sure he had Grizzly V2 for sale not long ago (may still have it).

Dan's Comp might still have some BSD frames on sale for around $240 if you want something that will take a beating and last a while. The only reason they are on sale is because the newer versions of the frames are in and they need rid of the old ones, which are still pretty new with up to date sizes and geo. There was a rider at a local park who was riding a BSD soulja frame and he loved it. they have super short rear ends but you don't always have to run the rear wheel slammed you can set it longer.

I'm really happy with my Gypsy Bikes Street Frame and for the price you can't beat it. Why buy used when you can have new for so much less. If you aren't swayed by Branding, the Gypsy is a good bet. If you like mellow geometry, look at the Gypsy Trail.

If they were that cheap over here, I'd get one just to see what it's like! And I think what midget Corey is doing is pretty rad. He advertises them as being cheap, and that if anyone wants a high quality frame they should buy American made.

To be honest, I'll probably have this frame for a while... so by the time you have money, it'll probably still be avavailable lol
