So i thought i was prenty final on the decision for my new frame being the hood bird, but i was looking at the DLX and jeez i want that frame. Had no idea lacey had such a long back end. Ive really no experience with federal products though, nobody i know really rides them, though i havemt heard bad about them either. Anyone got experiences, good or bad, wih federal frames in particular, but also any other parts, customer service etc. Thanks in advance guys

True, but we all know that you shouldnt just rwly in the calibre of the pros riding the frames to judge the quality. But yeah you do make a good point

He trucked El Toro on it , Dan does massive 3's and Bruno 540'd a 9 double set or something.

Honestly I like Federals brand and image but just the only reason I don't buy it are specs or I want another frame more , I was close to ordering the Perrin frame though

Yeah i love the little details on it, adds so much character to the frame.

Their new cranks look mega nice aswell, and i guess if you domt hear much about the company, as i dont, that can only be a good thing rep wise, as bad rep spreads like wild fires

Ok. Lacey is arguably one of the burliest riders to have ever been graced to bmx. And after watching Brighton Ain't Ready 2, I bet he's not going and getting a new frame every month. He's probobly building a bike up and riding it for a long time, seeing how those dudes were living while filming it. I want to pick one of these frames up. It even has gryo tabs, which is a selling point for me and many frames dont have them. Since my next build is going to have a gyro.

why are you phrasing it as if it was a stupid question to ask? its always a good iea to try get some real word opinions on a company before buying from them for the first time, and i want to know what theyre like as a company, if theyll sort me out if something went wrong from a manufacturing defect etc.

My 2012 Lacey is still going strong with a roughly 13.5 rear.

I dig it.

I actually LOVE that. I've slowly been liking very different geo. That frame is properly nice, i love those Invest Cast Drops. Federal really went all out on that thing. I'm thinking this Christmas i may buy myself an all new frame, and that's a contender for sure!

DLX is fucking massive like 13.8 slammed is a bit much .


If it helps I rode Lacey bars for a while and they were dope , limited edition blue looked sick . Probably sell them though.

Look into their warranty though, when I got mine it was a 90 day deal assuming you sent in the warranty card. I don't know if that changed.
