ok so recently iv been looking at frames but i don't just want to buy a frame the people say that is the lightest or strongest or coolest i want to buy something that i like. Something that looks really fucking good, decently light and is still strong. like i said iv been looking at bikes with the frames and with each and every different frame out there some look good and some look really shitty... heres some picsPhoto

Yo, the 3 you like have their own thing going on. They look cool. The first one is pretty cookie cutter common no personality. The second one I guess is one of those objective things. Some may or may not like it.

Check out the WTP Irish frame.

I'm not really sure where your going with this post. Do you not like the geometry/look of the frames or the color scheme/style of the bike?

Buy your bike in pieces.... So you get to pick single one.

All I can tell from the pics is you don't like black frames. Get a chrome or bright coloured frame then have one (or no more than two) other colours that aren't as bright for the rest of the parts.

I think you like longer seat tubes and a bit shorter chainstays. The seat tubes on the first two picture look shorter compared to the others (especially the chrome one). That's fine, I like longer seat tubes too, short ones have always looked weird to me. Recently, most frames have long seat tubes and a short cs so you should be ok. I have a chrome Fit Wifi right now and I love it.

Chrome is awesome, and then you pick an accent color and have rims hubs stem and sprocket match, and grips as close as you can.

That's what I did. I actually wanted blue, not red, but at the time, there wasn't enough matching blue available where I got my stuff.

Now I have chrome rims on it, and front brakes too. My fork is raw (didn't have $$ for a chrome one) as well. When I am not too lazy I am swapping out my sprocket for my black S&M Tuffman, and the stem for my ORIGINAL Shadow Topload that I have had for around 9-10 years.

Forget the way it looks. Go for one with the geometry you like. At least most of the time it will come in Raw or Black. Most of the new frames comes with 9" standover, 13.5 or less chain stay, 75 deg headtube. I'd try to stay around those numbers if possible but that's just my opinion.

8.5 standover, 74.5 headtube, 13.75 CS seems is 2011-2013 old unless you're a hardcore trails/park rider

Back into BMX after 17 years. I just want to learn how to manual dammit!

This, also if money is no concern, why not rind things you like about your current setup and then have a custom frame made?

He means a ton of people have the same looking bike and it doesn't really stand out in any way. A lot of completes look very similar too.

All the completes in a shop would look the same at first glance if you sprayed all of em black.

It seems you don't like tan walls too.

Why don't you paint your own bike when it cracks? That way, you can 'choose' the next color of your frame!
