what type of riding and what geometry.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

Sorry guys I don't know shit about these specs. My Haro frame is an F1C. The top tube is to short. No idea what the angles are on the set or headtube. I'm thinking 4-4.5lbs. Cupovjoe is right a good all around frame, under $400.

ok how about this


do you want stability or the ability to spin fast


do you want to be able to ride with better tracking or faster turning


do you like scooter frames or the ability to sit while having your seat slammed


i put the questions into different terms for you



edit: from your height you should get a 20.5 inch top tube.

What all do you have on your bike now? I know you put some recent stuff on it didn't you? New grips and all that? Have you done a bike check listing everything?

Reline flight cranks 175mm, american bb. Shadow 30t sprocket, 9t rear cassette wheel. Stolen Convict stem 1 1/8". Think that's all I've changed, other them seat and grips.

2/11/2010 1:56 PM

Well the problem is finding a frame with that BB, most people are running Mid's or Spanish.

What are you willing to spend on a frame? I would say you can pick up a complete for about the same price as a new frame or a little more. That's your core of the bike other than your wheel set. Check the for sale section, craigslist, or go to Danscomp, check out the bike sale section. I mean a new frame is going to run you about $250.00 being the average, well for $300.00 at Action Village you can order a 2009 Fit STR 3 for $300.00 bucks.

You can keep your other bike and swap parts, remove the parts you just added and put them on the other bike, or you can sell the old bike and you have money for more part mod's.

Hahahahahahahahaha, you see what this fucking weather does to me? I'm not right today. I got on Dans to look up American BB's, and obviously, they didn't have any frames, so I didn't even think properly. Oh well.
