Was a real nice BMX frame

The Good:

This frame is light and strong. I am a heavy guy and it has held up under my bulk. Like the black finish, which inhibits rust. Has strong, permanent/welded on u-brake mounts/pivots.

The Bad:

The built in chain tension adjusters chewed up my rear hub's lock bolts. So instead I bought some wheel slammer washers, much better wheel adjustment now.

Overall Review:

NOTE: Tree no longer makes frames, has since discontinued their lil' buddy. Does make me a little sad.

I like everything about this frame though, even the permanent/welded on u-brake mounts. Built my custom BMX project around this frame. Wasn't a fan of the chain adjusters though, so I bought a pair of "Simple Wheel Slammer" washers. Perfect wheel and chain adjustment every time now.

I am a heavy guy, and I ride dirt jumps only. This frame has held up good so far. Believe I bought it back in 2010, and it has lasted. Do take good care of mine though, since it wasn't cheap.
