Nice frame, I haz the same one! Just a suggestion for if you're taller than 5'8", try higher rise bars since the stack measurement is so low and the BB is a bit high (right in the middle ground between DJ and street, depending on what fork length). Ride that thing to the ground, but slam that rear end tup

Guys. Odd question but are U brake bosses and V brake bosses the same diameter? Only asking as I've been given the go-ahead to build a pure flatland bike by the misses (getting a bigger place)

So the plans to get a 24" bmx spaced frame like a capital, run front & rear brakes via gyro etc and 4 pegs. I want rim brakes front and rear as the issues with when I pegged the Babah was that I kept catching my foot on the rotors when doing tricks.

Also, any good U brake suggestions?

You want a u-brake? I've got the stock one that came on my eastern bike, pm me and you can have it for free it's taking space from my parts box

If it's the tektro one, it sucks.

Odyssey evo 2 is a really good brake, dia compe hombre is good too (I run that) and odyssey springfield, although some people have issues with the spring snapping.

I don't know if the mounts are the same size but they're in totally different places in relation to the rim:

I know they are in different positions however I am going to be using a rebate fork which has strap on mounts so can position them where I want so that's no issue.

Finally got to build up my Streetsweeper this morning. So psyched to ride!
New Streetsweeper Build

Id lower that for to about 70 or 80mm. Looks good otherwise.

He may find his bars too low then.

So get taller bars. That geo is whack with that tall of a fork. Eric recommends an 80mm and no more than 100mm on the Crypt, even. A2C wise that fork is like 490, pretty tall. Just sayin. If it feels good, ride it.

I appreciate the recommendations guys. This is a completely new type of riding for me and just wanted to see what it felt like before I dropped the fork down.
