Additional Info

The Storm Born, Breaker of Thumbs. named for the storm that was pissing doon when it was built. And my FK'ed up thumb when I slipped a spanner....
The much stressed over replacement for the Stanton 4X. As I wasn't racing anymore I wanted a little play bike for our freeride jump spot and parks like Danbury, Chick Sands an Woburn. I was looking an looking an couldn't find anything I liked or could afford, mostly due to companies not making play/FS 4X bikes anymore an all the Transition Bottle Rockets I did find, where beat to shit.
Found this frame for a good price an REALLY happy on how it turned out. Not as heavy as I was expecting for Chromo. It's balanced nice, rides planted an still nimble enough for dicking aboot on.
Also I got 2nd in a 4X race so it's not as slow on a track as I was expecting
(Now has Hope brakes, updated pics soon)
