    Supercross MX26

    Has anyone seen these frames? I bought one on ebay yesterday, looked pretty sweet for the price. I was looking for something steel, cheap, singlespeed, bmx-ish feel and ran across this. Pretty excited to have a hardtail urban / dj bike again.

    There is another one on Ebay right now too:

    the chainstays are a little long for my tastes as a street bike (almost an in. longer actually), but at that price, not bad at all! very light frame to... but, won't be needing the ISCG mount if you run SS... nice buy, show us some pics once you get'er built up.

    check this one out I just saw a couple of days back:

    That big should feel pretty good DJing or riding Park. For street it will be fine, but bunny hopping might be a little bit of a pain.

    it's all relative... if you start out on that frame (vs. swapping from another street specific bike), and get used to that bike like it's an extension of your body, you'll have no problem. But, just the fact that it has 16.5" cs's means it was designed to be more stable rather than have pop or be a manual machine. the cs's on my frame are slammed at 15.5 right now... just for comparison, some are shorter, some are longer, avg. is under 16 though...
    no biggie, doesn't mean you can't bunny hop with it!

    remember we were talking about our Turner Rails in another thread? well, the Rail has 16.6" cs's, which is somewhat short for a FS bike, but, maybe you'll be able to remember what it felt like. and your Bottle Rocket, it's 16.8. ok, this FS vs hardtail thing is kind of a horrible comparison, but you get the idea at geometry differences.

    Cool... thanks. I did not realize short cs better for bunny hop as well. No matter.... it is going to bunny hop a lot better than a FS bike, which I am used to. I have to check out a super short CS bike sometime... never ridden anything shorter than 16.5 cs on a 26" bike.
