Solid Frame just missing One Thing

Rating:
The Good:

Color options, strength, American Made 🇺🇸, great dimension

The Bad:

No chain tensioners

Overall Review:

Now the price on this frame may seem expensive to some. But if you want quality, strength, a frame that you are going to love riding and enjoy get this frame! It is a little heavier compared to some of the other brands. The welds are beautiful in this frame. I have a Translucent Black color way currently and am looking to buy a gold one on my next build. I own this frame and the Sunday Street Sweeper. Which the Sunday feels strong and light. But you can definitely tell the difference in quality and craftsmanship in the BTM frame. It’s S&M and Moeller has been making awesome bars, frames, and forks for over 20 years now. Buy this frame now! I stand by this frame. The only downside is you will be adjusting the slack on your chain constantly if you do not have chain tensioners added or built in. And as far as I know S&M does not have a frame built in the USA that is a 20 inch, that has built in tensioners available for purchase to the mass public. 

If you want to know what companies to stay away from that would be DK and Verde. They were producing some decent stuff years ago. But the new DK and Verde are not the companies they were on the beginning, especially DK. just do your research, always buy from a quality brand, buy fully 4130 chromoly everything!, stay away from Hi Tensile steel parts and frames unless you want to end up in the hospital. 

S&M BORN TO MOB!!

The Good:

This frame is rode by the man himself, Mike Hoder, so right off the bat you know this thing shreds heavy, and indeed it does with ease might I add, I've owned this frame for two years now and am the 3rd person to own it (bought it used from a friend who switched to the Street Sweeper) and the only significant damage it's received is small bits of rust, it's a VERY burly and well balanced frame with that 13.05 backend slammed (the only way it should be rode in my opinion) If you`re an angry bmxer that likes to throw their bike when it takes you 30 tries to land a hop 3 this is the frame for you, if I could describe this frame in one word it would be either ``Strong`` or ``Burly`` as this frame laughs in the face of dents. With the 21`` tt option this thing is a dream for manual tricks as it locks in perfectly unlike most ``street`` frames nowadays. 4130 American made Chromo frame so you know it`s light and strong as hell.

The Bad:

If its wet outside don't even bother riding (not that you should anyways) as the clear coat and paint bubble, peel, and spider crack if there are any scratches on the frame, or do yourself a favor and strip the shitty paint job off and repaint with nice paint like I did. If you run pegs such as the Merritt GFE pegs be aware as the dropouts do stick out past the peg a tiny bit. If I could change one thing specifically it would be the standover height on the seat tube and headtube as it`s a tad short for us taller rider`s but not a huge issue. and last but not least if you`re a petty weight weenie and need a frame under that 4 pound range don't bother as this is a real man`s frame (it`s an S&M so its kinda heavy kinda not)....

Overall Review:

So if you like bombing hills, abusing bikes, landing sketchy and somehow riding away from it, this is the frame for you,just imagine this frame as a big comfy couch that has wheels and a handle bar. If Chuck Norris rode bmx this would be his frame of choice, two thumbs up for this one! great colour ways as well :)
