Additional Info

The FrankenStinky from hell. Built to be like a bighit BMX. Bike loves to be slapped around on steeps and changes direction on a dime. Certainly not going to win a race on it but for chill shuttle days and doing some bike park laps I couldn't be happier. Still need to pick up proper pedals but the overall cost for the bike came in under 1k. The front end is stupid stiff, maybe too stiff but I don't care. the gripshift and internal hub are just a for fun test, if they don't work out I'll probably setup with an onyx hub and sram gx dh. So far im enjoying being able to slap it into any gear and just pedal, super helpful in rock gardens or grade switches so far. The mullet setup definitely feels different but having a little bit bigger of a front wheel helps the bike feel a little more modern. Bike still needs pedals, seatpost, and saddle but these ones work for the time being
