Hell yeah, post that shit!
What's considered short on a cruiser? What about bb height? I've looked at some cruisers online and most seem to have low BBs relative to wheel size, I guess they're more racing oriented but surely a higher BB and shorter rear end would be more fun for street or park.

So this frame has the following geo:
Toptube: 22
Headtube: 75 degree
Seattube: 69 degree
Chainstay: 13.75 slammed, currently sitting just under 14
Bottom bracket:  12.7
Standover: 9.5

The bottom bracket is pretty low compared to stuff like the Colony & Sunday cruisers at 13.8, and the old Fit CR24's that had 13.5 bb's.  I kind of like it with the short back end, though.  The feel of the bike is still a lot like a 20.  I've been playing around with a LOT of cruisers and have another custom that's a 13.25bb with a 14 inch rear end that rides pretty good.  I'm about to do another custom that's going to be similar, and maybe another where I push the geo to extremes. 

Just for reference, my 20 is a Mutiny Animist with a 14 inch rear end and 21.5 top tube.  I can't ride any of these newer frames with ridiculously short rear ends and crazy tall bars.  I just loop out and eat shit all the time. 

I need to post up a more recent clip of me dicking around on my micro ramp I built in my garage.  The ramp is tiny, ceiling is super low, and the cruiser makes it all a little bit smaller feeling too.

How much can a custom frame cost? I've thinking about getting in touch with FBM to order a custom 24" and build it up with all the fancy TI stuff I couldn't afford back in the day.

I would expect to pay 450 - 750 depending on who you get to build it and what kinds of requirements you have.

Pedal Driven's base price is $580 for a 24" Custom. Not sure how much you're willing to spend but you know your getting quality shit from Dave at PDC. I have a 20" PDC and  I love it.

Quamen 27t sprocket. Green chain and pedals because my daughter went up and said green! (Shes 2, learning colors/numbers). Might get some non pinch bolt cranks but idk. My local shop has some odyssey cranks with bottom bracket combo for 150 so its tempting.
