I was never a huge HUTCH fan BITD, but i can appreciate this build immensely! I really like it!


I just read through the whole post over at BMXMuseum...dude..you reaslly took this build to the next level. I am even more impressed after reading that thread. I am totally doing that mod to my upper gyro cables.

I had a chance to own one But never did. It was a nice frame but weak. Still it was nice looking.

Thanks again!

And yes Highlander the Hutches were know for cracking, this was due to the fact that they used 0.035 wall tubing throughout the whole frame......extremely light but very weak. It is fine for a race bike but has no place on a flatland frame.

This new frame is made of Ox Platinum which has a way higher fatigue strength than standard 4130 chromoly, yet it weighs almost exactly the same.

Yes,there were about 5 at that time (90's) and all were cracked at the seat stays except one purple one that a small kid had that he just used for joy riding completely original! .
I read up on this new beast and i have no doubt its Indestructible!!.

Is this frame just one or will there be more?

Thanks guys.......and sorry for the late response....this is a one-off custom. Rick at Standard Bykes can build you one just like it, and you can even change ANY of the dimensions to your liking.....most of the companies out there only allow you to change head angle and rear end length but with Rick you can change seat tube height/angle, etc.........reach him here:

how long did it take standard to make the frame

Frame itself took approximately 3 months to build.

Are they that backed up?...

Rick is pretty slammed right now......ever since people have seen these frames a lot of guys are getting them made. Other than myself Woody Itson and Martin Aparijo were among the first to get them done. Once I posted my build on the Bmx Museum I have nearly 4,000 views so Rick is getting bombed.

If you need a frame like this in a rush I don't think it'll happen......plan to wait at least 3 months.

I rode a trickstar for a bit around 95 or so ,I stripped the paint off and found a crack on a seat stay by the brake bridge,My vo tech teacher who had just fixed someone's homeless player fixed it for me and cut off the chain stay standard that were bent in .I loved that frame learned so much riding it.It took 2 cans of the old school aircraft paint remover to strip all the spray paint off of it.

Whoah! That is so cool! If that had a lower top tube/seat stays with brake mounts on the underside of seat stays that would be a dream frame for me.

Havenít seen one of these in a long time but I zoomed on the pick nd almost doubt myself because Iím sure that I saw integrated headtube and gyro tabs, thatís when I realized that this was a custom built frame and that made me appreciate it even moreÖ..
