2016 has been a year that has been good for breaking the mold when it comes to BMX frames. People were complaining that all BMX frames looked the same / were too similar, and now a few brands have stepped up. The other week we got a look at the Mike Dinello frame from Nowear, now we’re taking a look at the Mike Escamilla signature Caveman frame from United Bike Co.. This frame is what happens when you mix 2016 design with 1980’s innovation. The Caveman frame is made from full 4130 chromoly tubing with at 75-degree head tube angle, 69-degree seat tube angle, 11.8″ bottom bracket height, 8.8″ standover height and a 13.65″ chainstay length (slammed). This frame features an integrated head tube, top and down tube gussets, a down tube that wraps around the bottom bracket with a wishbone, Mid bottom bracket, a wider rear triangle with tapered seat and chain stays to fit 2.40″ tires, removable brake mounts, 5mm thick dropouts and, of course, the removable steel bash guar that attaches to the bottom of the wrap around down tube.
The Caveman frame comes in gloss metallic platinum blue only with your choice of pink or white bash guard, 20.8″ top tube length only, a weight of 6 lbs 1.7 oz. You can pre-order this frame through United Bike Co. dealers worldwide now, but expect the frame to become available around January 3rd next month.
