Really? I did not know. I thought steel frames were more common just for durability. Either way, I’m an old man so big jumps are not my game. This thing is a blast though. I usually hit the trails with it when I take my kids mountain biking.

Aluminum is the preferred material for DJ's.Almost all the pros favor it over cromo.

Does the name seem familiar for those who ride motor bikes?

No doubt, but alu and steel have different properties. Alu tends to be stiffer and more harsh. Alu has to be over built to have any life expectancy, light race frames only 3 months where a comparable cromo frame 3 years. Also Alu does not deal well with abrasion so you never see street frames made out of Alu. Alu however even over built tends to make a pretty light frame and most DJ bikes have a sus fork to make landings a bit nicer anyhow.

+1

1 reason I'll generally only by a steel 2nd hand frame - life expectancy.

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

For me it's Alu's mode of failure. It tends to tear where cromo will crack, much better life expectancy for me!

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

Not a fan of cromo frames,never liked the way they rode or looked,too flexy.Also the selection with aluminum frames is much more vast compared to cromo.

Nobody on here will be riding a alloy DJ the way the pros do,so they pretty much will last a lifetime.

Chromoly rules.
I prefer it because of price, ride quality, and smaller tubes look more traditionally BMX.  Also, the ability to run rigid chromo fork for a big BMX ride feel.cool

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

I have seen Alu frames flex so bad you could pop a chain off out of the gate. Granted, they are so flexed out at that point they are worthless and dangerous. Still, if your cromo frame is too flexy you are not riding a frame designed for your weight. If you can feel frame flex while on 24 or 26" wheels your frame is probably cracked.


I also did not that Alu frames are typically over built so they don't flex out and will last longer. Most frames are changed out of boredom anyhow rather than age and abuse so the point is almost moot anyhow.

Pretty much any NS 24 bmx tire will do.

I vote for the Vans Cult collaboration.

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

As far as I know the Cult/ Vans tire does not come in 24” sizes.

Odyssey has a 24” tire.
https://shop.odysseybmx.com/collections … ro-24-tire

I run 24” Odyssey pursuit tires, super grippy, almost too grippy to where sometimes a little slide is good but these don’t let go at all.  Unfortunately, I don’t thinks it is available anymore...  You still might find some out there.

Yeah didn't see the 24's, thanks for confirming. I've always liked Odyssey tires but it's been awhile.

Yeah Odyssey is rad.
Just make sure your frame can fit a fat tire.

My frame can clear 2.3s but I had to modify my brakes to suit the 2.2.
