A few months ago we got a look at the new Proper Bike Co. Tecmatik frame that they have been working on over the U.K. The plan for the frame? It’s a straight forward frame without too many bells and whistles other than being durable to handle todays riding. This full 4130 chromoly frame has a 75-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.6″ bottom bracket height, 8.9″ stand over height and 13.38″ chainstay length (13.05″ slammed). You can find laser cut top and down tube gussets, a tapered Mid bottom bracket, integrated seat post clamp, curved seat and chain stay bridges, tapered seat and chain stays, 5mm thick heat-treated 14mm drop outs. The frame has clearance for 2.40″ tires and 28-tooth sprockets.
The Tecmatik is hitting BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Proper Bike Co. worldwide now. It’s available in 20.7″ and 21″ top tube lengths, colors of raw and ED black with a weight of 4 lb. 13 oz.

“This frame was designed with three main objectives; to be strong, responsive, and affordable. There’s no compromise on quality but we’ve managed to keep the price reasonable by keeping what we call “vanity features” to a minimum. There’s no laser cut headtube logo, no gusset stamp, no fancy finish, and no investment casting or hydro forming, no signature pro to pay…..even the box packaging is recycled card. What you do get is finest quality construction, twin headtube gussets, and a short rear end designed for more technical riding. Virtually all our team riders wanted a similarly specced frame, so you shouldn’t be surprised to see this frame easily cope with the harshest riding.” – Proper Bike Co.
