link not working

you mean this?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120891273272? ... 3D1&_rdc=1

tbh as any mtb company who moves into the bmx market, they get it wrong and end up building something shite

personally i wouldnt pay more than £100 for it

what are u planning to use it for? racing, crusing or skatepark use?

if skatepark use then dont bother!!!

they are a race frame so wouldnt use for the skate park

they maybe fine for a thrash at the track but so is a raleigh burner :lol: :lol:

my point is if he wants something to use properly then he better off buying something more suited

if its skateparks then try and find a more park specific bike

if its track then it would be ok but that model has a hi tensile rear end so id be careful jumping it

if its just cruising around then it would be fine

no alloy bmx's are generally made of 6001 or 7005 grade alloy

only steel bmx's are 4130/531 reynolds/sanke tubing or the cheaper/weaker hi-tensile steel

reason i said it had a hi-tensile rear end is because of this

3rd one down ( fatboy mx)
