I also have one of the last frames and i was thinking about selling it, might want to rethink that.

with one of the big ballers of the game it seems that recession is hitting bmx companies hard, just like t-1 opted for manufacturing their frames in taiwan.

This might actually be a good move for aaron in trying to re-size his company. It might actually get him the recognition solid always deserved.


So can we talk about solids influence in the bmx industry ?

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.

It was like that with their customs to but I can see why.

I'm pretty sure solid makes the majority of headtubes and bottom brackets for companies making frames in the US, that on top of making frames for many smaller made in US companies like Freed and Native. Solid always seemed the cheapest place to get custom frames too, so probley more influence than you think.

Not to mention the number of prototypes made for many, many companies.

Making head tubes doesn't make you a big company, not that this is the issue. They're apparently still making headtubes, BBs and dropouts.They're not a big company, even if they made Cults. This isn't if like Cyclogic (or whatever they are called) stopped making BMX frames. Not stoked that they aren't making frames anymore. I've had a couple of Solid frames and a few stems.

Doesn't really look like a "cruiser", got the high BB of a more Sunday inspired 24" BMX. Also looks very short on the front end, nearly got toe strike?

I guess they'r back into making custom frames again now with new prices chart. http://www.solidbmx.com/read/customs/

But this texte confuses a little. http://www.solidbmx.com/read/2014/11/the-big-one/

That's sick, they pretty much made their prices % 150 of what they used to be. And no I don't care about their his overhead either.

I was always thinking that other companies S&M FBM and standard will drop theyr custom frames prices, because they'r not that different from those on the market beside being "custom". but in fact it's the opposite, it is the lowest cost who actually raised.

3days ago i visited theyr website and found that they will be making custom bars soon for $70, and this made me thinking about getting one, now it's 100$. this made me think twice about getting one from Solid.

Their previous prices was what made them preffered for me.

That custom frames/bars page was put up at the beginning of the year when he announced price changes in customs.
