Im going to be building a bmx up before summer and the first step is obviously to get a frame. Im after something longish, low and light weight as I don't do to many grinds or drops. The Fit Cleaveland frame really appeals to me as does the Fit Dehart and Federal notorious frames. Budget is around £200 - £250 so im guessing thats around $300 - $400. What would you recomend for light street and park riding (pegless). Also im after ideas for the spec so if anyone wants to list what they would put on a custom build that would be great. Cheers people

The fly tierra comes in 21 even though the offset seattube makes it a 20.6...it still feels like a 21. it has a really short rear end too and a very low seattube.

Im liking some of these suggestions. I also have a question about the fit frames. Why are the dehart and cleaveland frames cheaper than the aitken s3? The weights are not too different, is it the material used?

i guess it might be the material used because my friend had a dehart frame and dented it in the first week of having it by doing a disaster on his Qpipe the s3 is probubly the way to go if ur lookin for a fit i have a fit s2 and love it

Thoes frames in question(Dehart-Cleaveland)are made in Tiwan so they are cheaper to make.I'd buy American cause of the quality and warenties.
