Solid is done
« on: November 13, 2014, 02:36:47 PM »
Well just read on solids Facebook that they are no longer making frames, bars, or cranks.  They are going to focus on frame building materials. Sucks they made the best frames.

Wow, that's a total bummer.

Probably realized that bmx frames don't have very large margins and they can make way more money on big bikes and motorcycle work.

Just saw this as well, such a bummer.  I was hoping to see some new shit from them for next year. So glad I picked up a King Cobra last year, best frame ever.

Sucks but outside of norcal I didn't see many Solid branded frames, plenty of their frames with other company logos on them though.
Is FBM basically the only American frame maker left now?

So we will never see the Reel sprockets again? Sucks. They always seemed so fuckin lazy/we will get to it when we get to it- regarding their parts.
