2011 Solid Bikes

Custom built Solid Bike Co. Frame & Fork w/ disc brakes.  Best bike I've ever owned, handsdown!!!

My fully custom Solid with disc brake mounts, all done by Aaron Huff & Crew at Solid Bike Co.  They build some of the best stuff, and Aaron is one great guy to deal with and talked to many times.  Having a custom frame with disc brakes, may be alittle over the top, but absolutely fun. This bike is a beast in the dirt, but just as fun on the street.  Absolutely love the geometry of this frame, best riding/feeling/handling bmx I've had, the parts are near perfect (may get a topload stem and change out yellow spokes since I've ditched the yellow).  I have changed parts quite a few times, trying to find the right color scheme/look and especially dialing in how it handles and feels.  I have found and built my perfect bike I think.  Very happy with how this bike turned out, and especially how it rides. My daily, my go to rider
SOLID FTW!!

The had thw notch out part of the fork, then weld a plate on.  Amazing work they did.  And the welded on disc brake mounts aren't too shabby either.
SOLID FTW!
