Get something with a 74.5 head angle and a 13.75 backend maybe 13.6. Steep haedtubes and short backends are for street and feel unstable riding over 10 mph.

S&M ATF frame, around $150-ish used. The name says it all. Lol

I was looking at this frame when I was looking for a new one. Looked like a good frame and BSD's stuff is legit, but I didn't like how thin the dropouts were in the pics. Saw one at the local park yesterday and was glad I opted against it honestly

Was my second choice for a new frame if I couldn't come up with a Mac. I still may get one if I end up not liking the Mac's geo

They're all street frames by the looks of the geo. The stats EO posted are more dirt oriented. 75 headtube seems to be fine for dirt nowadays, just a little twitchy, but a 74.5 ht will feel alot better on everything at high speed. And a 13.5 rear end is probably as short as I'd go for dirt honestly. It's all personal preference tho, as you may have no problems at all.

Any modern freestyle bmx bike will work for what you wanna do, just pay attention to geometry cuz street frames are always pushing things to the limits. Steep head angles and shorter back ends really only help in spinning tricks at low speeds and nose wheelies.

well i was looking at the felt ethic 2014... would that be a good starter? and would it work for just all around? im concerned about the weight though. not being a weight weenie i just want something i can actually use and shit.
