Well my current bike is bike is better for daily riding and its too big to do tricks on. My roll has a less of a chance of getting stolen and it has a front break. Ill be rocking the pista without breaks and I'm gonna get a smaller size like maybe 56cm. Thats the bike I originally wanted but they were hard to find at the time.


superpistas are on sale now. if you get a bike smaller than a 56 you won't be able to bar spin it unless you run a 650.

I want a super pista strictly to do tricks on. &) Yes I know its aluminum but I give a shit, my roll 1 is my regular bike.


ya know nothing personal if you have a shit ton of money to blow but, you're a jackass for thinking a super pista would even be a good frame to trick on in the first place.... one awkward landing off a wheelie and you can say goodbye to your headtube. If you want to trick on a fixed gear get a Volume Cutter or and Eighthinch Scrambler or something that can handle the abuse. The bike gods would frown on you tricking on something as nice as a Super Pista.

cutters have pretty shitty clearance still and are a tier 1 trick frame at that.
the FGFS game is unreal now, straight BMX frames shelling out, wish i was committed to some shit like that ahah, seems fun.

the v5 cutter and thrasher have legit clearance

ithink th main diff wit the v5 and th thrasher is the bottom bracket, max tire size and maybe the frames geo

Not with a bang but a whimper

Any reason you want B43's? They heavy as shit and are you planning to trick?

and Dunkpunk, get a Fu Man Chu on that if you plan to trick smokeyface, only fucking 1 inch fork thats worth buying unless you want the landing gear lol.

I don't where that is at. I usually bike 10 to 20 miles away from where I live - Buena Park. I haven't had time to make long trips or I would easily bike to Long Beach.

I'll check it out whenever I have time for a long trip and/or have more experience with long trips. The farthest I've gone is 17 miles total, which I think is nothing.

I personally support the hometeam, All-City Dropout

My boss currently rides the RYD Havoc, with curved seattube and 1 1/8 tubing. He rode the dropout for awhile, nice FAT tire clearance with 26s

Nice bikes alex, I have thought too many a time about building a second bike, but then I realize I would have the other bike being unused the time I'm using one or vice versa.
