I have some updates....

My new current ramp machine is a custom Iowa made STA with the gas tank gusset and brakes on the chain stays. 
My new current roast bike is an S&M made T1 barcode in 21" tt with welded on mounts. 

Best of both worlds.  Super stoked on how both of them ride.  I even did the rear end test where I stood on the rear triangle and tried to get it to flex, both frames were stiff as a board.

On a related note, I just noticed the below frame on eBay, and unless I am mistaken, it was the first BMX frame to have an integrated headset. It was made by Dirt Master in 2000, almost five years before S&M popularised them.

Pictures soon, I promise!!  I am in the final stages of dialing everything in.  I am going down to STL to the Tree HQ next week and I am going to grab the rest of the parts I want to finish the T1.  I still need to finish tensioning my new wheel set that I am putting on the STA as well as waiting on a pair of cranks to show up.  Then that rig should be done. 

My final step is the rubber department.  After riding Odyssey tires for the past 8 years or so I sort of want to try something different.  The gum Cult tires with black side walls is my current first choice for my STA.  But I'm not really too sure what I want to put on the T1.  I guess we will find out.

That Dirt Monster isn't really an Integrated headtube. It used some large regular sealed bearings pressed into the headtube, basically a bottom bracket for a headtube.

Hey Bobby, are you still working for Full Factory? What made you pull the trigger on an S&M/T1 and a Standard? P.S. Those Cult gum tires slide on any surface.. they're pretty much the worst thing ever.

The gussets are awesome.  My wife has been needing my name carved into her for about a decade.

I think we have a winner in the Worst Headtube Design category.
Does anybody here have any experience with these? It looks like those bearings would be subjected to a lot of sideload punishment.

Bobby left full factory to move back to standard country to be closer to his family.
