anyone used it??? suppose it is a all mountain suspension frame, but it's really cheap

the overall thin tubing and lightweight look really suspicious..........

I had my hand on a bloodline archetype hardtail frame b4, same but thicker 7xxx alloy tubing, it only weights n feels half of my Da Bomb dj hardtail frame..........

That's one good looking frame and for the price , that is a real bargain. May i know the overall build weight? Curious about it for quite a while now. How does it handle, any issues so far? Might get one myself this month from ebay seller. Thanks. Smile

Sorry for the late reply. Anyway, so far so good. I've put prolly 30-40 rides on it and nothing has broken yet. My build came in around 30 lbs. Def. not light, but I went with some beefier components. I'd say for the price its hard to beat.

Thanks. Would definitely go for it this time. I'd try to place order on the 15th and see if i could squeeze my budget and get it atleast below 30lbs. i'm targeting trail type around 120 to 130mm.

I ordered one of these few days ago, hoping to get it today or Monday!!!! Will be my first build so I would appreciate any tips or suggestions for parts that worked well or even what not to try!!!

Build was pretty straight forward. The hardest part was finding the correct bushing sizes for the rear shock.
You'll need M8 x 24 M8 x 54

Thanks Co-Am, what kind of rear shock did you use?

Fox Float R 7.5 x 2
