Really short so excelent flickability but not so short that it feels sketchy like a BMX. The steel tubing is really skinny so it looks top notch, properly pretty frame. the tubes also magnify the clicking of the hub which sounds epic. The steel absorbs small bumps which is great for DJing (compared to the brutality of my last aluminium DJ frame). Integrated headset so I didn't need a headset press.
The Bad
The paint is a bit soft so brake hose rubs through very easily and quickly.
Overall Review:

The Tweet frame is so nice to ride. It is the most fun bike I have ever ridden. from the moment you get on one you feel light and quick because its so small and throwable. It's not a very heavy frame either my whole build weights about 13Kg which is pretty damn good for a DJ bike. They feel really strong too, in landings they feel strong, it's hard to describe but you would be very supprised to feel it give out in a hard landing because it inspires so much confidence in its strength. I would heavily recommend this frame to anyone and would buy another if mine ever dies in the far future.

i owned one of these frames for less than 3 months and baild on a flip the bike landed on its side, got up thaught nothing of it went to ride away and the crank hit the chain stay! the frame had bent badly. got in touch with spank and they said that they wouldnt warrenty it and said they would offer a crash replacment so i asked how much that would cost and they said £280 the frame is fucking 300 brand new!!!!!!

Overall Review:
i havent rode this frame alot but from what i have it's a really great bike to ride and really easy to get used too. the colors are rad and last long. the 2011 version also has a longer top tube and for someone a little taller like me that is great. overall it is a great frame and i think any type of rider would love it.

My first impression of the Tweet

First off it looks great of course! Really high quality finish on the frame that will keep it looking that way for a long time. It's very light as well, especially considering the amount of abuse it can take. Very easy bike to get used and really is confidence inspiring, I have no doubt that any rider would feel right at home on a tweet
The Bad
I rode a 2010 version and there was some fork clearance (with a forx 36 anyway) issues which have been reworked and fixed in the latest model. Other than that there isnt a bad thing I could say about it, very solid bike
Overall Review:
I only had a very short amount of time on this bike, my first ride on it was mid comp at At's Showdown in san francisco. I had broken my other frame when I cased one of the jumps, luckily a tweet was available to me so all hope was not lost. All in all the bike performed for me in a scenario where I didnt have anytime to get a feel for it. I had to just jump on it and trust that everything would work the way I wanted to. Luckily for me Spank builds a top quality frame just like the rest of their component line and I was thoroughly impressed and more than satisfied. A testiment to this is the fact that I will be riding a Spank hardtail frame in 2011. I would recommend this frame to anyone without hesitation.
