So you have a 20” BMX, but you are still riding your 18″. What made you decide to stick with the 18 for now? I have decided to stick with the 18″ for now because the 20″ is still a little too big. We increased the stem length on the 18″ and its just a better fit til I grow a few more inches.
Frame / Size: Kink Bantam 18″ with 18.5TT
Why did you choose that frame? Light only 4lb 8oz and love the colour
Forks: Kink Bantam Forks
Bars / Size: Kink K.C. Badger Bars 8″ Rise
Stem: Kink 53mm high rise stem.
Grips: ODI longneck grips.
Headset: Kink Headset
Seat: Shadow Conspiracy 1 piece seat.
Cranks: Profile 165mm Cranks
Sprocket: Profile 28t spline drive sprocket.
Chain: KMC K710 Chain
Tyres: United Direct tires on front and back 2.1.
Wheelset: Alienation Blacksheep hoops laced to Profile Elite Hubs front and back.
Pegs: Tree lite Pegs.
Pedals: SNAFU.
Brakes: Kink Desist Brakes and lever.
Special Mods: I use a piece of tire between the bottom bracket bearings and the bb spacer which prevents the cranks from spinning. This is so cranks are in the same place you left them when taking feet off to do tricks (see picture below).
