So I've been offered a Take Ivy 5 frame for £150 ($230) and I was wondering how similar it would feel to my BTM, which has unfortunately cracked, the only thing I was worried about was the standover. I've also been offered a Fit Hawk 2 for £40 ($61) to sell on, possibly ride. Yeah csb. Anyone had any peg experience with Profile front hubs? I swapped my primo wheelset for these and now im starting to worry...


I do stuff and I'm not good at it.
I got refs

I seek progression, not perfection.

Ivys are awesome frames! The back end is a little longer than your old BTM but everything else is the same. £150 is a steal also, i would go for it myself! As for the Profiles, i have a set & pegs will never touch them! They do offer hub guards & hex head bolts for the option of grinding, Superstar do better looking hub guards for them also if the half guards aren't your thing.

Not only, he also broke prototypes of stuff that will drop put soon.

Im riding a 20.75 ivy 5 rn and the back end is short enough in my opinion. Tough frame, feels stable as hell
