– Tell us about the specs of the frame. Sizes, angles, colours etc.
The S6 frame was designed to be a technical park frame which could still handle the trails, transitions and streets. Jack’s blend of riding is unique so we wanted to make sure this thing could handle it all. The frame features a super short and responsive 12.7” chainstay as per Jack’s request, but we also used oval tubing allowing you to fit a 28t sprocket on there and fit larger 2.40” tyres. The S6 Frame has a slightly lower 8” standover which gives you more clearance on technical tricks without making it look and feel like a scooter. The frame uses a lower 11.5” bottom bracket for stability and a steeper 75 degree headtube angle to keep things nimble but stable enough to blast some big transitions. The S6 frame is available in 20.4” and 20.8” (what Jack rides) top tube lengths and come in Glossy Black, British Racing Green and Matt Translucent Burnt Orange.
– Any special details we need to know about?
We wanted it to offer something which other frames simply didn’t. We saw that many park frames on the market really sacrificed durability in exchange for a lower weight so we used the same proven tube set and technology from our Wethepeople frames to ensure this frame could take some real abuse whilst still keeping the weight at a sensible amount. Because of this beefed up tubing, the S6 Frame is now one of the only park frames in BMX to carry a full lifetime warranty. A real cool feature on this frame is the seat tube which we ovalized at the bottom to give your feet more room to catch the frame on Tailwhips and move about on Tabeltops (which Jack does a lot). This feature gives the frame a unique look from the side as well as having a real purpose and benefit to the rider. We also used a smoother headtube and bottom bracket shape to give the bike a really organic look.
