- 26" BMX options
I have an old Sunn BMIX which is ace but the 110 spaced rear end, sloping track ends and the minimal tyre clearance is making my life a misery.
What other frame options do I have?
26″ 135 wheels
non suspension correct front end
Disk or V mounts
Small, tough chuckable frame

I love the BMIX but I just cant crank the rear hub bolts tight enough and the tyres either rub on the frame or rub on the brakes. With the dropouts being angled at the back and now a bit rounded i cant get chain tugs to work without slipping.
I was considering a 24″ cruiser but could just pull everything off the BMIX and stick it on a 26″ frame.Posted 6 years ago
I’ve got a guy at work who says he’ll weld a bit of plate to the dropouts to get them square so that should solve one problem.
now I just need to find a hub and learn wheel building.
those big bmx don’t look too bad for frame & forks but they have stupid u brakes. worst brake design everPosted 6 years ago
No Tom, my friendly welder cannot spread the rear end being that he is a welder not a spreader, plus you must remember how solid those rear ends are, I think itd be more likely to crack around the BB area or something.
5lab, That 29er BMX looks interesting for something like bike polo though the HA is maybe a bit steep, as for a standard BMX, it seems a bit silly.
Kayak23, I also think I’ve seen them but have no idea where, plus the dropout is rounded so there isnt a lot of space to fit anything.Posted 6 years ago
