2011 St. Martin Evo
A non-typical flatland frame (17.9' TT, 12.0' RT).
This rig was a long time in the making: an exhaustive search for much of the componentry, in particular the frame itself. Everyone possesses their own particular preferences with regard to building a ride, this one is representative, to every last piece of the flatland puzzle, of my own vision of perfection. Also, this bike is not for show, the bikes that I admire don't sit idle to be looked upon, but bear the beautiful, wondrous scratches, shoe abrasions, scars, frays, and all other imperfections that serve as medals to its being put to full use for that which it was intended. There are some truly remarkable builds here on the Museum, each admirable in their own fashion. I respect all the dudes on here who invest their time and efforts into assembling astoundingly detailed, visually stunning, BMX bikes. This bike isn't one of them, but nonetheless claims a unique, utilitarian, simple blue collar admirability I find to be its most admirable feature. Componentry wasn't spared expense by any stretch, but it culminates into one grand, magnificent purpose: THE RIDE!!! Hope you dig it!!! Frame: St. Martin Evo, 2011.
