A frame that can self adjust its specs.

Like , a internal wedge system in the seattube , say when tightened by an external allen key , it pushes the upper part of the seatube via the wedge , catering to both park and street riders.

Or , this is on some DJ frames , an adjustable chainstay . I guess like longer dropouts technically , but more like you bolt down your wheel to a rectangular sheet of metal , and then that piece can slide into the frame to custom adjust itself.

This is a great idea but I feel like it would break easily and the paint would look shitty when it gets scratched from the movement.

i had this idea like 2 weeks ago, but when i really looked at it, it would mean a swiveling tube weld, which wouldnt be very strong

It wouldnt hold up, but i have thought of a few ways id need to sketch to explain to alter the geo of a frame up to 3 inches (chainstays). Is it do-able? Yes. Would it also be heavy? HELL YEAH. haha the frame would be like 5-6 pounds haha

Well, seeing as my frame is over 6 pounds anyway...

yeah haha itd be ride able for sure. I have a few ideas. It would be reallly cool to ride i think. Like some of the tubing is screwed together. The area near the BB along with the seatstays and you could adjust the backend length like that!! haha itd be really good i think but the quality of the metal would be hefty and whatnot.

the 3 inch long dropout idea has been done before, but they tend to close at the tips from what i have heard and seen

Dropouts used to be really long... like well over an inch and a half of adjustment... we did away with them because they were bending up and closing, so you'd have to pry your dropout open to get your wheel out.

If you feel you need to adjust your frames seat tube, get a lower slung frame and just raise/lower your seat depending on where youre riding. And for the CS I know they make frames with like 13.175slammed-13.75. Just carry two Ody Keychains in your bag, one sized for slammed and one for 13.75. You could swap them out really fast to get a more stable rear end. Then we have the Shadow Captive (I believe?) Forks which you can adjust your offset. So in reality, you can make a fairly adjustable bike. 10minutes of maintenance to convert to a different style.

Thanks guys. I just thoght of it on the spot, but it would be a neat idea. I'm not trying to make it real or anything. It would just be cool to ride something innovative and unique , plus more people could ride it and make it to their liking !

A few MTBs have adjustable CS length. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is the EVIL dj frame. look it up at evilbikes.com or something like that.

if you changed the st length, wouldnt that put stress on the headtube welds? like where the tt and dt were, since itd be changing the angle of them ever so slightly

Morpheus Vimana too.

It's Anthony Messere's signature split frame and he actually went to my school and I had science with him. Dude is a local and kills everything , even on a BMX he's better than most pro's.
