    New question here. 2017 Bad Boy 2; OR BUILD better bike for the money ?????????

    So I want a bad boy 2, 2017 model as its heavily revised, local shop will be getting on in exactly 4weeks. Its 1700$

    Im a skilled mech and can build a bike, However Ive only focused on XC and road racing, I want this to be a fun wheelie bike and for hopping up and off curbs on the bad roads in miami. I looked at the SLATE, hell cut me a deal for the apex for 1750$ BUT.... I don't think Id be able to bunny hop w drop bars and wheelie it at 15mph like I can an XC bike.


    So, the BB2 looks DECENT, but lets face it, its a budget bike... What frame should I be looking at if I want to start a build with an ebay carbon frame as a starting point? I would love to buy the same lefty fork and lefty front hub and then build a set of carbon rim 50mms for it and put it together from there. Cheap 1x setup. All the money on the wheel set basically.



    Thoughts????

    Don't just say get the BB2 and upgrade it.

    Exactly 4 weeks, is that to the hour or the minute...?

    so you just want something fore wheelies and curb jumping? and some road riding? Just get any old, old 29er aluminium frame, build it up with the spec you want wack on some fat slicks...
    or get a the bad boy...
    All the gear and no idea.

    There are better wheelie bikes out there.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.
