my frame isnt chomoly apparentlyly, its hydroformed. what the fuck does this mean?

Chromoly is a material, hydroforming is a manufacturing process. Hydroforming is basically using water at high pressure to shape, in our case, a tube. What frame is it?

It's a technique of shaping metal with water. Or atleast i think that's what it is...



Edit, ohioan beat me to it.

http://www.the-bike-expert.com/gt-zone/ thislink isnt info directly from gt itself... but seeing as they are "bike experts" I'd hope they knew what they were saying when they said the frame was hydroformed. lol


The GT Zone is a beginner’s street BMX bike that’s a perfect introduction to the world of BMX racing. It comes with GTs new alloy hydroform frame which is an alloy frame and considerably lighter than the forged steel frame you get on the entry level GT Slammer. That makes this bike incredible value for money since it’s only slightly more expensive than the Slammer.


I bought this bike with no knowledge of what to buy, it was just at the bike shop and I just happened to have 250 and needed a new bike at the time so i bought it because it was all I could afford....

"al·loy
noun
noun: alloy; plural noun: alloys
ˈaˌloi/

1.
a metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, especially to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion."

people hear alloy and assume aluminum because most aluminums are in fact "alloys" but it's a general term for any mix of metals so it's an accurate description.

Kinda came across as being a smart ass. Could of put something like 'alloy doesnt actually mean aluminium, its a mix of two or more elements' instead of the typical smart ass dictionary definition paragraph long thing. Js
