Custom street trials mod [20"]

Back in the days when I rode trials I used to f*ck up my bike in by beginning of a new season.
This year I am glad to start with a "brand new". For a long time I had an idea building a mod that
would have advantages of a bmx bike on the streets, but was still suitable for some trials jibs.
I was not sure what geo and parts it should have, so build it as an experimental bike. After testing it
for a month I can say that I reached my goal. I can do things (on same level) that I did on a my mod bike
9 years ago, plus I got a bike with pretty close geo to my bmx. Custom street trials mod [20"] - Your Bike Trials Media

Looks great except for the rear brake. Should be loads of fun.

Super fun. I love experimental/random projects. What did the HTA end up at?

Usually these frames have 74,5 hta, but with the long mod fork looks like 73.
Dunno how to measure it right
