This is pretty big in scootering. I was wondering if it would work in bmx. Speed holes are holes drilled into a deck, they are drilled into the strongest point In a deck. The logic behind it is, by weakening the strongest point in a deck, the weakest points are made stronger because the impact can be distributed to the holes in the strong point and not to the weak point. So would this work on a bmx frame? Say for instance a frame has a really weak ht/ tt junction. So you Like make speed holes in the downtube of a frame so the top tube/ head tube junction won't snap.

Idk why don't you try and then let us know.. Try and make at least 10, they're really isn't a very strong part on a frame.. Welds are weak so I guess the seat tube would be the strongest.. Never seen a frame snap the tubing their..

Youre the single most annoying, attention hungry child on this planet. Go make friends and gtfo off the internet. You said you quit biking, so leave us alone on this BIKE forum. Nobody here cares about you whatsoever.

I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Um...ok.

Why would you want speed holes in a bike for tricks? You should put that in your RACE BIKE because they make you go faster.

You need trick holes. Jagged, sharp, structure compromising holes EVERYWHERE. Your frame should look like HONEYCOMB with lots of SHARP EDGES.

Make sure you run your face along them for luck!
