Anyone who is a regular reader of bmxultra.com will know we have a fondness for cromo race bikes. An obsession, some might say. And they would probably be right. BMX International, the Australian Distributor for S&M Bikes, announced the arrival of the Steel Panther frame, the latest in the evolution of S&M’s race frames. Here’s the low down.
Prowling BMX tracks, easily preying on weaker Asian varieties, the American Steel Panther is King of the CrMo race frame jungle. And unlike it’s predecessors the 38 Special and Speedwagon, it’s not named after a cheesy rock band from the 80’s.
Some notable improvements from the Speedwagon include: Additional bend in seat-stays for greater chain clearance, integrated chain tensioners in drops and slightly lower stand-over. Rear-end length depends on Top Tube length.
Available in Chrome, Gloss Black or Yellow.
