If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened? Don't screw over those you tell your secrets Nice pedals!! Any idea on the weight?? I'm a rider not a speller So please take it easy.I'm dabbling with the idea of going with a titanium frame and even bars. I mostly ride dirt with some park in the mix.
What are the thoughts on titanium here? Personally, it's a crap material for bmx parts. The only benefit you'll get is it'll be lighter. But how light do you really need your bike? It's more expensive, and weaker than good chromoly.
Just buy an fbm and it'll last you a lifetime. Like Steve said, it's light. And at least in other bicycle applications that I have had contact with it's "flexy".
In the end it is up to you, so if you have an extra couple thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket Anthony Loves Subrosa.
Titanium is not very flexible, it's brittle. Chromoly is good all around. Titanium is hella expensive too. It's around two thousand for the frame. Anthony Loves Subrosa wrote:. It all depends on how it's applied.
Ever ridden a titanium MTB? The frame is generally very flexy. Have you ever ridden a ti framed MTB or road bike? I'm telling you, they are flexy. There's no such thing as a material that doesn't flex. An actual "BEND" is completely different. Dave Lawrence in that forum went to school for it.

Unfortunately, the lightest BMX bikes remain the most expensive models. If you don't have the funds to purchase one of these complete bikes, simply customize your current setup with a few of these lightweight components. The handlebar stem of the BMX features a series of bolts. Stem bolts that have a solid construction add unnecessary weight to the frame of your BMX.
Simply replace your stock stem bolts to decrease the weight of your handlebars. The wheel axles of the BMX commonly feature a solid aluminum construction. The lightest BMX bikes feature wheel axles that have a hollow design. The frame is the largest and heaviest component of the BMX bike.
The lightest titanium bikes weigh only 2 pounds. For a less expensive option, choose a BMX frame that features a chromoly design. According to Transworld BMX, chromoly is a type of alloy that has a lighter and stronger composition than steel. Many BMX bikes come equipped with a set of grinding pegs.
Bikers often remove two of the pegs to decrease the weight of the wheels. Although stainless steel pegs are the most durable and can grind across rough cement ledges, they also add unnecessary weight. The lightest BMX bikes feature pegs with an aluminum or plastic construction. Use aluminum pegs while street riding and plastic pegs on the ramp.
Shorter pegs are lighter than the extended models. Despite the compact design, BMX pedals can add significant weight. Heavier pedals feature a solid stainless steel construction. The lightest BMX bikes feature pedals made of aluminum or plastic. Equip your BMX with hollow pedals to decrease the weight of the crank arms. The lightest pedal models also feature hollow bolts. While wider pedals offer increased stability, they weigh down the BMX.
Replace your stock pedals to lighten the frame of your BMX bike.

About the Author.There was also a brand called RNC that made Titanium cranks, pegs, bars and more that eventually went out of business as the price of this type of metal skyrocketed.
The crew at Eastern were showing off a Titanium frame that they are doing one off custom builds of at Interbike and it looks like Mike Laird over at Laird Frame has decided to give it a go, too. If you follow Mike on Instagram you probably have been checking out the photos he has been posting giving you the look at the progress of his first go at playing around with welding on Titanium.
It looks like he has it dialed in and has decided to add Titanium frames to his custom frame options. Like we mentioned above, the cost of Titanium has come down in recent years and pricing varies quite a bit. But, some times people have a little more money to work with and this is why this frame exists. It sounds like Mike will be offering free powder coating if you for some reason want to cover up that clean Titanium look.
Above and below you can find photos of the first two frames Mike has made from Titanium and it looks like the first one weighed in at 2lb. If you are into this, you can take a look at ordering a frame on the Laird Frame website. You can get welded gyro tabs.
Unfortunately you cannot do removable brake mounts and guides on these frames. Not just welds. Many times welding anneals the surrounding metals weakening it. Post weld hear treatment, proper welding depth, hear, near type make it strong usually resulting in the filler material being stronger than the main material.
Ever seen a frame snap right before the headtube, right before the welds with the break on the bottom tube?
Strength wise for a BMX frame, you would want to stick to chromoly. A frame like this is more ideal for the smooth ramp rider that wants a lightweight frame. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
