That's what my thoughts were too, I LOVED that frame, but couldnt do the size, too short for me.

I feel much more at home on my Ticket S

I'm 6'1 ish and I loved my soda Slope. Only sold it to fund the ticket s, but I miss it. I've tried to snag one again but can't find a frame for a good price. It dirt jumped well, but was just fun on everything.

I took mine to bobsled and I street multiple times, canyons bike park in park city (you're a Utah guy right Dylan?). It was a great play bike and dirt jumper. Ran a totem at 140 on it a while, made it feel like a mini freeride bike. I'd put it up there as one of my favorite frames ever.

My favorite aspect of it was just how solid it felt. I never once questioned that bike, just f*cken sent it. Hit some of the bigger stuff at the old rampage site on it, double down trail at canyons, Ogden bike park etc. I highly recommend it.

quick question for y'all, I was just doing some work on my BMX, installing a new headset cause I smashed my old one, and with everything tightened up, there is play in the forks. All rigid of course so it aint no stanchion issue, i can see the bearing moving in the frame. To be honest I did just find it on the ground at the skatepark, and a friend informed me that it was from a scooter, but I was also told that they are the same size, and it fits snugly into the frame. Ideas?
I was wondering if it was a spacer issue? thats what i'll try next.

Probable a small size difference because it’s a scooter headset. My friend did the same and had play in his headset in the end he just got new bearings.

It may also not fit your crown race?

sounds like there are maybe parts missing on the angle of the bearing race isn't correct, maybe some pictures would help solve this
