ThunderKill x Rustbelt Welding: LTD Frame Nov 29, 2010


This just in from ThunderKill:

“After months of refining, prototyping, and breaking frames, we believe we have reached a point where we are confident with our product. The ThunderKill LTD. frame which has been in the works since early summer 2010 is a 26″ specific FGFS frame, sporting many features sought after in the current market. Boasting capability of double peg grinds, throwing barspins with 175mm cranks, and slamming 2.3″+ tires the frame rides like a dream. We have tried to capture an “All American” feel to these frames, using only USA made tubing, BB shells, dropouts, and integrated headtubes. We believe that if you buy an American made frame it should be made from the best products.

The Rustbelt Welding Company a Cleveland duo of frame builders Grant and Lou, the producers of the Marco Polo frame, are building all ThunderKill frames. Stay tuned to the project, more details on production models, along with pricing and final geometry coming soon.”

I wanna see a 700c size large! Don’t forget about the big riders! Are all 26″ fixed guys on 175mm cranks? Nicely done fellas.

    Can FGFS bikes get anymore like BMXs?

  • Wizzard

    So what this looks sick and probably rides sick aswell. I wanna see someone use keos and all those others as lip tricks or imagine if somone threw a fakie smith to keo

  • Rui

    Next is 20 inch fixed……

  • bleh

    fgfs bikes like this r fucking cool imo

    @Rui, I’d be lieing if I said I’d never thought about building up a 24″ fixed just to see what it would be like. But of course my 26’s serve me just fine, so I can’t justify it.

    I’m on 26″ w/ 160mm cranks. Works fine; shouldn’t need to change it really. I like how the smaller cranks spin honestly (since I was running 170mm’s back when I rode 700c)

    Oh, and this frame looks DOPE. Of course.

    @Brad, I was only half joking and I think this bike is rediculously cool. Problem with 24 and 20 inch fixed is that riding seated would be painfully hard and riding out of the saddle can get tired after a while. Even these 26 inch frames seem to just for tricks, the 700cmx style bike are at least ridable for getting around and getting from spot to spot.

    Wish I had the space to throw around on one but living in NYC with a wife and two kids, Im on a two bike limit. Track bike, 20 inch BMX is all I can store.
