Seamless tubes are still better than welded seam tubes… seamless can handle much higher pressure than welded… as for supercross, their steel frame is very stiff… and it’s extremely light weight… I don’t fully understand their design & technology but I do know enough that this is one of the best 4130 race frame for the price.. it’s same with my fiction creature… on paper, it’s one of the best 4130 frame for the price… and so far, the bike’s been great except I do not like the handlebar’s geometry…
