    Great bike
    Your "electric green" is really beautiful, even if the kawazaki green is darker than what it seems on my picture, I prefer your green !
    I'm going to make a dirt an park bike of my BMXTB because I've ordered a ION ST for the next french downhill season

    Whafe : I'll start a thread with pictures from my trails in france, but tomorrow now it's time to sleep here
    Never enough singletracks !

    Thanks man. I've been thinking of doing another bike in that color, it has a lot of depth when you see it in the light. I've seen some high-res pics of your color, I quite like it as well.

    Can't wait to see the ION.

    bmxtb race

    Bmxtb (race version)

    Trying to use a bmxtb race frame for cross country

    Frame: Bmxtb Race medium size, Easton tubesblack ano, real weight 2.230 grams, perfect welds and alignements as usual. Thanks to cnc jokes you can have 400mm chainstays and still have clearance for a 2.3 tire (kenda cortez)

    You can use xtr f dera but with such a great tire you will have only 2 millimeters clearance

    Fork: Pace rc 40 130mm

    It seems to work extremely well for cross country too, max 2 hours ride or you spine and gluteous will become red. Lower the fork for climbing and then use Pace launch control to have full 130 travel and perfect angles for descending.

    Steep climbs needs skills couse of 40 cm chain stays

    not a bike for beginners or long rides but it may work

    A few pictures of the blue BMXTB I had a few years ago. I sold it which was a shame but the Balfa Minuteman I replaced it with is a
    better fit. It was a great little fun machine especially when there were jumps about, but the ultra short top tube length and slack seat
    angle meant it was tough to climb with and hence not quite versatile enough for my needs.

    Even to this day I still can't believe you took the BMX up big Beinn. probably the most unsuitable bike for that ride but that wasn't going to stop you.

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for a BMXTB frame for DJ and was wondering whether I could follow my other Nicolai size. I have a Helius AC 650B in L. Would I be looking for a BMXTB also in L or would a XL also fit? (I am 6.3/191cm)

    Thanks!

    Joey
