“simplicity meets perfection”

The Good: The frame is low and light, giving an initial impression much like a 4X bike. The speed is there but dont be fooled. the short chainstays and high bottom bracket make this thing as much of a street and park machine than any other. a steep headtube and long top tube balance the need for a responsive, playful geometry with the need for stability and room for barspins. The frame can handle any abuses and will simply beg for more.

The Bad: The chain tensioners work great for the most part but they need to be very very tight or they like to slip. this caused some frustration initially but now that the bike is dialed there are no real complaints.

Overall Review:

This is simply the best dj frame around. load it up with your favorite components and its a bike that anyone will envy. Tough, reasonably priced, light, clean, absolutely dialed.
