Looks amazing. The raw tubing has a great color to it as well.

Freq G's are my favorite tires aesthetically. But I can't use them...sucks.

Great parts list...

Thanks, mang.


Why can't you use the Frequency-Gs? Just curious.

Looks good, royc!  The Pandora 19 is pretty strong frame.  I think Bill Nitschke rode (and beat the heck out of it) his Pandora for 11 years before he finally retired it.  I enjoyed my 19 FlaTT for a while.

They're just a little slick for me and my feet tend to slip a little. I still scuff a lot like it's 1987.
I wouldn't mind trying a different compound to see if there is any difference. I was using the v2 of the wirebead...with the blue "Odyssey" logo on the side.


I ended up scoring a set of Mac 1's and that solved the slipping problem. Now I'm riding Trackmark tires and some Motel Works 0825's that I traded my Freq G's for.


I'm still wondering if a softer compound would work better for me. Because they are great looking tires.

Also - What's the standover height on that Subrosa, mang?

Understood on the tires. I scuff like I did in 1987 as well, but I haven't had an issue with these tires. Maybe I'd be better on a softer set. I don't know.

Not sure on the standover height: I don't have a way handy to measure it, and I couldn't find the spec online.


Loving this build!

build looks really well put together. That frame rawed out reminds of the solid bmx frames with the wishbone stays like the duke. Always liked those odyssey tires too. That Heresy bar may be a bit small for today's standards tho

I've been eying the bigger Heresy bars, I had Odyssey Milk Bars on here the last time I rode this frame, so these are definitely a step up.

I just found a picture of a few of my first builds. The 1980s, in BMX bikes...
