airborne?


Yup!

Lancaster

Think i'm going to strip the decals off. Any tips boys? They seem to be painted? Will most probably end up with Wildgrippers on, as always which colour?
Currently very light and may get lighter? Dunno yet!


Looks absolutely gorgeous!

niiice... just picked up an airborne miss behavin' bmx ti toy =)


eeeeeeeek!

I wouldn't trust an Airborne bmx frame if I was given it and paid to ride it. I have personally witnessed 2 break... in multiple places at the same time. Careful mate, they are just as bad as the brand x ti forks that raped the market in the early/mid 90's. They were a company with 0 bmx experience... and it showed with the integrity of the frames. (I doubt they did any strength analysis on them either.. which is what kept the costs down there with top end aluminum frames at the time.

No cracks just lots of smiles! Change of direction and i've come full circle. Out with the White Bros and back in with the Terralogic Fox. On goes the Charge and off comes the Flite. Just need a few ties and the cables shortening. Job done!

nice to see another lucky strike. I had a frame bought for me in 2000/1 (?) and it got built up for my 40th (as a surprise) by my youngest brother october last year. mines built with ritchey WCS carbon parts and shimano stuff with a Reba race fork from 2006. the welds are awesome!
