What price range? Hardtail or FS?

go with a smaller size than usual- if you ride a 15" usually, go with a 13" for this.

Cleaned-up my race bike, new fork, gears, chainguide, pedals, saddle and stem. First ride was at Silver City BMX in Meridan CT. Had not been there in 21 Years.

Thank you. Dunno where you travel to for racing, but as I had not been on a BMX track in 20 years, I had a blast sorting this build back home in Connecticut. The track I raced at in Meridan when I was 14-16 has changed so much, and an old friend of ours from BMXA days started a track in Torrington which is NBL National experienced. That track is rad.
Thanks again!

Black Market complete (mine started as just a frame). I love the way this handles, super short backend. If I could keep only one bike, it would be this.

Nice. Before altering the geometry like I had to my Iron Horse, I figured the best accelerating bike would have the shortest chain-stays, and be really aggressive. After riding a Black Market it was just too small. Uncontrolable for my size, but this Yakuza Bakuto and Yakuza Chimpira frame(s) like being snubbed-out and set for racing.
What'd ya do, take off the front brake for dirt jumps?

Nice Iron Horse, I used a GT XCR-4000 when I raced DS. I had a 600 lb spring on the shock and with the i-drive I had no problems getting up to speed and had a little suspension for the tracks that were built into downhill tracks, if you know what I mean. I'll try to post a pic.
