That St Martin is the shiz Brian!  I agree on the Torkers, something about that design just doesn't work for me.

Re: what do you think is the uglyest and coolest twin top tube BMX frames

Wow there's a lot of people with crappy eyesight/poor-taste on here.  :p

Come compare my kickback to a Schwinn Orange crate...TO MY FACE.

p.s.
I'd put a Kuwi Exhibitionist or Falcon Prostyler over pretty much everything else listed here.

The Exhibitionist is a way better looking bike than it rides which is why I can't ever give it high marks.  I know that's not the point of this thread, but after owning one I just don't see the beauty in it I used to.

Re: what do you think is the uglyest and coolest twin top tube BMX frames

I get the geo thing.  I prefer my FLATT's geo over my Kickback's--though I prefer the Kickback's looks.  I haven't completely discarded the idea of doing a 1-off, custom commission at Standard to replicate my Kickback with NS geo.

To me, Torker is the original DTT & therefore always going to be the best DTT.  But they're out of the BMX market altogether, which in some ways is to the BMX world what the death of Freddy Mercury was to Rock 'n Roll.

IPD, I got a purple '86 280 air coming in the mail.  I know you like that combo!  Purple, Torker, DDT wink

Too bad I don't have the strength in me to cut the angled frame stands off.  Sure would be a better rider.  smile

Thanks man, I am just waiting on the right set of cranks to come along....
and I totally agree on that frame design. It just doesn't work for me.

and, to each their own IPD... and I don't have a Schwinn orange crate, however, I may be able to pick up an orange crate from Swiss farms tonight... equally as appealing as those curved TT torkers, lol...  lolbig_smilelol

and those frame standers on that purple 280 are crazy, not sure I ever  took notice to them before.

Re: what do you think is the uglyest and coolest twin top tube BMX frames

Heh, at least Torker's frame-standers are less moronic than the "right-in-the-way-of-bolting-the-wheel-on" standers that Predators had.

Re: what do you think is the uglyest and coolest twin top tube BMX frames

For me has to be haro freestyler as the best. Not really got a worst but if i had to say it would be the curved tt torkers.

Re: what do you think is the uglyest and coolest twin top tube BMX frames

As far as ugliest there's one somewhere I saw posted recently that goes from twin top tubes to rounded into a standing platform behind the seat tube. At least I think I saw one like that.

One like the Jamis Laser is what I was thinking of, but I don't think that is the specific one I had in mind.
