Any comments or any kind of experience about it?¨, basically trying to get back on BMX after a few years off. I use the bike for dirt jumping mostly.

Thanks!

I'd be cautious about SE complete cranks. The frame is fine, but the components aren't the best. I'd upgrade wheels and cranks first.

Good bike. The wheels are pretty good. Alienation rims aren’t that bad. It’s ready to shred out of the box

I'd definitely trust the frame. It's Kris Fox's sig model, and he goes big.

Cheers to all!
I checked the geometry and apparently is pretty long, 21tt and 13.7cs, i used to ride 20.75 and 20.8 (im 5.8 or 178cm so im not that tall). Any advice? Also, the CS wouldnt be too long?. I just want to hit the trails, i was thinking in getting a short stem if eventually i get the bike (could be work right?)

For the trails it's good to have a longer CS/TT. For stability.
