Product info

The Capital is a dedicated street frame. It's available in two sizes, for 26” and for 24” wheels, both with radical geometry and ultra short chain stays. We removed the build-in pivotal mount making it easy to adjust the seat height and added double gussets up front to beef things up.

 

The Capital uses multi butted tubes that are super strong in critical stress areas but also not too thin in overall - therefore more resistant to dents resulting from crashing and throwing the bike - something that is inevitable in street riding. Don’t worry too much about the weight... you will see abused bikes built on Capital frames hitting the 9 - 10kg weight mark. We made the frame strong enough even for the most hardcore riders. This radical frame is the brainchild of "RNS" our test rider and product manager.

 

The Capital comes with a narrow seat stays and U-brakes which are the better solution for street, giving great power, modulation and a clean looks with nothing to catch on your trousers. We still feature 100% removable brake hardware so it will look pure for those who prefer to go brakeless.

 

The Capital is not a big street BMX cruiser. The geometry is radical but you can still use short travel suspension. But the parts that you should spec come straight from 20” world - a BMX hub (110x14), Spanish BB, integrated headset, integrated pivotal post, removable U-brakes bosses in the case you need them... simply a pure street frame.
