Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

I never thought that Gold and Black would be a cool color combination!!!

I'd change the sprocket but leave the rest.


cool Upgrade your bike until it's exactly how you want it then go on to the next bike cool

Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

This bike is really good looking, I personally would add AME Pro grips in black, SE Gold+Black Donuts, and a RetroBMX.com seat it has an old school look with new school comfort. This would go along with some of the old school stuff you have on it. Look at my SE Floval, it is an 08 but looks older.

Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

Guys, thanks for the comments and suggestions. This bike is a perennial work in progress.

Right now, I'm looking for the seat that FlovalFarley mentions, and also checking out grips (black?, gold?) and pedals (black?, 50/50 black and gold?).

Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

Could you let me know the seatpost size, I have the same frame and I'm racing it again, but really love to update this part and is a bit extrange to match the size.
Thanks in advance!

Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

Wow...the new 2008-09 Quad teams are TT:21.25, HTA:74, STA:71, Weight:4.6 lbs...I notice as times change so do the geometries. I kinda like the old school geometries a little better.


In the 80's, I was riding the streets with Eric (Hutch), Jamie (GT), Jody (JMC), & Ronnie (Diamond Back). North Hollywood, CA to The Teen Center in Van Nuys, CA. The best LBS was The Pedal Shop, where I bought my first & only JMC frame, forks, & parts for my very first build...

Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

What problem do you with the rear stays?. Talking about frame weight, you can reach 23lbs easily. Mine is 24 lb, and I don't have "light" new school parts.

Re: 1998 SE Racing Quadangle

In about 6 months of races, I broke my Quad frame right in both rearstays-lower whelds. Plus both dropouts plates blended first and then start crack right at the 4 welding points, first lower both tubes and then both top tubes. This frame's rearstays seems to had a little design problem, my frame plus had the same little curved at top rearstay tube, take a look at this DESGID69 one: http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/se_racing/8599/4 .
Rearstays seems to have a little "parallelogram" movement which the 4mm dropout didn't resist. I had the same problem with my first 93' cromo assassin bike.
