Hi, I was thinking of getting a new frame but unsure about changing as the geometry will be different. Just want to ask what will feel different if I do change over?

The frame is going for about £60 but unsure. If no then I will wait and see if any others popup.

I mostly ride street but do go to the park when it's dry as the weather sucks in the UK at the moment. I am currently learning rails and ledges as I just found some old pegs in my house.

Also does it matter what pegs I have? I was thinking of buying some new ones as I think I currently have some salt ones on.

New frame would be MUTINY Cosmotron v3 20.8" tt

Chain stay: 13.25" slammed with 3/4" of adjustment.
Head Tube: 74.5 degrees.
BB Height: 11.6.
Seat Tube: 69 degrees.
Standover: center of BB to top of top tube: 8.68".

My current: Social Storm 21" tt

75° Headtube
71° Seat Tube
13.5" Rear End
8.6" Stand Over

Your rear wheel will still sit in probably the same position assuming the storm chainstay is the center and not slammed. Otherwise it will move forward 1/4". Other than that they should feel similar. I cant speak on bb height since i dont know the height on your current frame. I personally notice bb height the most though


I'm on the vital legit list!

The cosmo will feel easier to chuck about, but less stable. Might feel a bit weird until you get used to it. I personally can't ride anything less than 21", but some people prefer a smaller frame. £60 is cheap for any frame (although I know the market is flooded with second hand bits right now) it could be worth giving it a go, worst that can happen is you sell the frame on if you don't like it and lose a couple of quid

Just get it and try it out. That's cheap for a cosmo
