Do I keep my frame or not?

New to BMXing and bought a MirraCo off a very nice man. I didn't know what model it was but I think I have found it. I believe it's part of the Icon series in 2010..

Here's a pic - [LINK TO IMAGE]

The man I bought it off and myself have put on some upgraded parts - chain, sprocket, pedals, (think the BB but not sure), seat + post, stem and bars.

Now, I've heard mixed reviews about this frame but all I know is that it is 100% chromoly which I know is good! Now my question to you lot is, do I buy a new frame? I would still want 100% chromoly and sub £100 so it would be hard finding one! This is because I have only been BMXing about 4/5 months.. OR do I upgrade the rest of the necessary bits on mine headset, (maybe rims) etc... ?

Cheers, Matt

ride it.

upgrade parts when they break. Learn to ride well on this, save your money for when it's time to upgrade and buy quality parts.

I see nothing wrong with that bike.

I'd keep it and switch it when it eventually breaks.

Thanks for the replies guys!

I do ride it, a lot!! It's great to ride smile

I'll keep it, maybe spray it in the summer (the paint is horrid!) and just get practising with my bmxing

When it breaks, I'll buy a new frame/new bike as mentioned

Thanks again guys, reassured me a lot about it
