Thanks for the heads up, I would not have realized I had a message waiting for me if you had not posted again.

I'll get in contact with him, thank you very much.

I sent you a message regarding the Standard Resinator frame with contact info.  Hopefully, something can be worked out. :)

I'm actually liking the Standard Resinator specs more than the S&M Dagger specs, but only because the dagger has such a short standover at 7.25 whereas the resinator is more like 8.25" (for the 21" TT version). The shorter standover is probably a good thing for flatland but I think such a long frame looks kinda silly when it has such a short standover. Not a deal breaker by any means, just thinking out loud.

Another promising frame I'm looking at is the Colony Sweet Tooth, specs look like this:

Sizes: 19.8”, 20.4”, 20.7″ & 21″ TT.
13.25” rear, 75.2º HA, 71º ST.
11.5″ BB Height.
Stand over height for 19.8″ & 20.4″ is 7.5″ (centre of BB shell to centre of TT).
Stand over height for 20.7″ & 21″ is 8.5″ (centre of BB shell to centre of TT).
Weight: 20.4″ version 5.2 lbs (2,358 grams).

Yes actually standard resinator has specs like I am looking for, I hadn't even considered standard when I was looking around at various frames. A new one is a bit pricey though, It's gonna be awhile before I have enough $$$ set aside.

I ride a 19" Dagger for flat and I dig it.  Solid, well built frame.  I have a Primo Strand fork (known to be a little taller than most) with 13mm offset which mellows out the 75.3 HTA a bit.  Would a Standard Resinator interest you?

Hey there Daddycool,
Yes I can’t identify which one is the V1 and V2. I have compared these two Chase bars I had and I noticed the  difference at the bottom edge of the bars where Stem clamps. The one is smooth while the other one has welded cover. Hut I can not tell which is V1 and V2.


I can post the picture but it won’t work here.

Also, where is the best place nowadays to go for used parts. eBay? Here? BmxMuseum?

Thank you

Parts and Bikes / Longer frame
« Last post by aliasdck on Yesterday at 03:12:38 AM »
i am happy with my utopia (TT is 20") but have been contemplating building up a second bike. For this I would like to try a longer bike with specs like:


Top Tube - 20.5" to 21"
Chain stays - around 13" to 13.5"
Headtube angle: between 74.5 to 75
Seat tube angle: between 70 and 72


I thought about getting Matthias frame but I don't want such a steep headtube and I really don't like the color (would rather not repaint). So I have been looking around at other bmx frames, not just flatland specific ones. The closest I have found so far is the S&M Dagger. It's specs are:


Top Tube: 20.5", 20.75" and 21"
Chain Stays: 12.8" to 13.6"
Headtube Angle: 75.3
Seat Tube Angle: 71
BB Height: 11.6"
Standover: 7.25"


These specs are almost perfect but I'd prefer the headtube angle to be 75 (0.3 isn't that big of a deal) and the chain/seat stays are not tapered nicely to the dropout. But these issues are minor, so I might get this frame but I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on frames that are currently available.


I prefer traditional 2 triangle design but is not mandatory, for example: I have been considering The Heresy AscendD in 20.5" but I'd rather find something closer to 21".


Not ready yet to go custom build, just trying to find something that already exists.


Thanks :)

Hi Rizal,a very intersting question! I bought one from Bikers Base in Germany some month ago and also could not find out if it was V1 or V2. I even asked Odyssey but they could not give a clear answer. So I do not know if there was any difference in the sticker design for example which could clarify.Unfortunately we cannot see the difference in the wall thickness that was announced for V2. I searched the web for some pictures and in the one from FF they say that one bending radius was increased. But it is hard to see that. Would you say there is a difference in these two pictures?

Hello everyone,
old but would like to ask, if anyone of you have pictures of the V1 and V2 Chase bars for comparison? I bought one on ebay and I can’t tell if this one is the V2 or V1.
I have two chase bars now and can’t find the difference. I am also not sure which version this first chase bars I already had.
Your answers is highly appreciated. Thanks!
Rizal
