    How about a Hex or an Element with a lower BB? Or a Rockman Switch with better welds. Deserves a look anyway.

    I thought he wanted a trials bike?

    Personally I'd go 26" with 380 chainstays and small horizontal dropouts, vee mounts, steep 74 head angle, +30bb and roughly 1080 wheelbase....oh and of course....A SEAT!

    The bend in the top tube is for clearance for tail whips and cancans.i a park rider too.as for the seat. I'm a street trials rider . Got to have a seat.The tubing I used was all True Temper ox platinum .9/.6/.9 . Frame weighed 3.666 lbs before paint. I did not weigh the fork.

    I would like the idea of the build with a different frame. Trials with grinds just sounds fun.

    This is what happens when you 3D print a bike and hold a press release about it:

    Why they would think a 3d printer's plastic (those things usually use pretty porous and weak bonding plastic) would be able to bear bicycle loads, is beyond me.

  20. Lol at the look the kid in gray had when they were snapping photos of the broken bike.. "gee this 1/4" thick plastic steerer tube broke because it was hollow..." Yeah hollow was the reason....
