What are the ups and downs of low Top Tube frames like the total hangover and killabee or the premium guttershark? id think thew would be better for whips and like no footed tricks.

Pros:

Cons:
You look like a fucking twat
Your bike looks like a fucking twat
Your frame is weaker

ups: supposedly easier for doing whips, which makes sense

downs: looks like you're riding a retarded scooter frame

Ups:0
Downs: weaker, dumber, and less control in my opinion.

I like to PLAY with them. I have to run my seat real high if i have a low frame. I like them bc i dont bend well for can cans haha whips ARE easier. They are, however, bad for control unless your seat is higher.

I think they look cooler than 9.25 Standovers that are up your ass

They help with no footed tricks

Basically helps with any trick where your foot/feet go over the frame and your seat obviously sits lower but a longer post always fixes that. Other than that im sure it doesn't effect much. Might be slightly more flexible but probably not by much. Low slung frames are generally used in flatland/park settings.

I feel like most people hate them just because theyre very parky and kind of go along with the "Profile Elites and titanium everything" trend that park riders follow. Half the people who talk shit on them have probably never touched one in their life let alone rode or owned one.

Im beginning to lean towards a more slung frame, though most super tech frames are 9". Mine is 8.75" and so is the one im looking at (Volume Cerberus). I would prefer an 8.5 or possibly even an 8.25 but I dont think anyone will ever make a super tech street frame with gyro tabs and brake mounts that slung other than Total BMX and maybe some Flatland companies, and I wouldn't really trust myself on either of those options.

I ride a guerra martyr with a 8.25 standover and I also have an s&m ltf with an 8.5 standover I love both of them but I don't know if I'd like any lower then that .....I'd go taller if I still had trails and just wanted to moto whip all day but I'm riding allot more skatepark the last few years then street or dirt .....I couldn't ride a low frame with no seat post though that shits hard on the knees

I remember when people actually thought the Black Eye Killerado and Mankind Justice frames were cool.. They look awkward as hell.

if you cant can can or whip on a 8.5in standover frame you need to remove the dick from your snatch and man up. just saying. lower may help a bit but in the long run its not a game changer.

I seek progression, not perfection.

i have a mankind justice and love it. not a fan of tall ass frames biggest ill go is 8.75 which my gypsy is. But low standover frames are fun for learning whiplashes and whips n can cans. I learned whiplashes on a blackeye killerado. To many haters on here!
