Reason for Making It

We originally only made some custom frames for ourselves for fun, but other people started asking for them so we decided to sell them. We called it lil’ Buddy, because your bike is like your little friend that is always ready for good times and adventures, it usually goes anywhere you go, whether it’s down the street or across the country.

Why it was made this way

Although there isn't much to do differently on a BMX frame these days, we think that we came up with a dialed geometry, nice looks, and very high strength to weight ratio. The frame is post weld heat treated which makes the tubes and welds of the entire frame act as one piece of steel instead of tubes welded to other tubes.
