Great frame!

Rating:
The Good:

AWESOME dropout design, probably makes other brands go "why didn't we think of that?!", strong, great geometry, holds up thru abuse!

The Bad:

I can't say anything bad, I love mine and haven't had an issue with it.

Overall Review:

Great frame, awesome innovative design, great feel and response! Buy one!

Badboy frame

Rating:
The Good:

Drop out design is brilliant from slamming you wheel, no slip at all and doesn't interfere with pegs. Can run 2 rear guards with out needing to stretch the frame. feels strong.

The Bad:

Could do with down tube gusset, maybe a higher stand over

Overall Review:

pretty nice frame, would of been nicer if it had a higher stand over.

Good Frame

Rating:
The Good:

It feels nice, very light, strong and looks cool. The dropouts prevent the chain from coming loose and they are different to the ordinary horizontal dropouts.

The Bad:

The BB is a wierd size and it is very difficult to get the bearings in, they dont go all the way in and sort of stick out a little bit, still works fine though. The dropouts cause weird chain tension, you can either run it close to snapping and killing your sprocket or quite loose and scratching the frame bit of a pain in the arse but small price to pay for such a good frame. Back end length is kind of wierd for manuals, might just be me though.

Overall Review:

Good frame only 169.99 on alansbmx.com highly reccommend it!

Great frame!

Rating:
The Good:

Strong, light, cheap, and the vertical dropouts are super easy to work with.

The Bad:

If you get a new gear ratio, you have to break your chain and either add or take out links to make it fit. My friend snapped his clean off at the headtube, but he was bailing on a front flip no hander.

Overall Review:

Buy it, it's a great frame.
