    they are perfect, if you plan on filming a rap video...


    if you are slightly serious, the lineup from SuperCo is what you want to be looking at. the original brooklyns were the brainchild of Doc, who is now SuperCo. the current brooklyn line is just overpriced averageness...

    agreed.

    I feel like BMW has almost stood still since 2001.

    Another over rated Brooklyn. The Milwalkee Bruiser is a much better fixie/freestyle frame then the Gangster for a decent chunk of change less.
    Brooklyns are over priced and over rated but for some reason they are popular over here on the east coast places like Platekill and Diablo.

    The SuperCo's are pricey also. Why not go with a proven frame like the BlkMkrt Mob or even a Dobermann?

    Ok just because I don't like their track bikes does not mean I hate Brooklyn bikes. their stuff is a bit high priced but like I said guys on the East Coast love them. Seems like most guys that hate their downhill bikes are from the west coast. So this is just another East Coast vs. west coast thing. As for being in a rap video, people are just hating on them because Pharrell Williams owns part of them and they built a bike for Kayne West.

    Then again they are still hand made in the USA which is a good thing. That being said, the Big Ben, ACL and the Park bike are nice bikes.
    Don't listen to the west coast hatin propoganda!

    If you want strong, low priced but little heavy just buy an Azonic Steelhead.

    If you want mid priced, strong and dont care about American made then get a Black Market Riot. Check with S&M they were blowing out whatever Black Market stuff they had leftover from the S&M-Black Market split. Frames, complete Riots and 357's at great prices. You could get a complete Riot for less then what a SuperCo frame cost.

    If you want high priced go with a Black Market MOB not sure of their warranty on Black Markets though.

    I believe that Brooklyn Machine Works has a limited lifetime but not positive.
