St. Martin Eiffel Frame Flatland BMX 2010

st martin eiffel frame flatland bmx 2010   St. Martin Eiffel Frame Flatland BMX 2010

Although the sport of Flatland BMX is somewhat underground compared to dirt and street, many still love and enjoy it, including myself. New from St. Martin is the Eiffel Frame 2010, with the geometry of the top bar and bottom bar coming together to perform tricks easier by jumping over the frame. The St. Martin Eiffel Frame uses 100 % Sanko cr-mo tubing, removable gyro tabs, cable stops, and brake lugs, and a Spanish bottom bracket. Frame weight is 3.86 pounds.
