Custom S&M 38 Special cruisers available

4 04 2009

Turns out that you can have a custom-made S&M frame,  built to your specifications…without having to sweet talk Chris Moeller or be a member of the S&M factory team. All you have to do is ask.  You may have to sweet talk Jason Ball (at S&M) though…which is fine since he’s a rider himself, scoring a part in the BMX  Inferno video years back. ESPN recently sat down with Jason to get the scoop on what S&M offers in the way of custom frames:

Top tube lengths, bottom bracket height, head tube angles, rear end lengths, axle slot size, brake positioning or style. We have made custom forks and handlebars. The pricing depends  on how many different options you chose and the time it takes to build the frame.

That’s pretty awesome. If you’re pretty particular about bikes or need an extra long top tube or shorter rear end length this could be the ticket. Check out this custom S&M beauty that I found on BMXmuseum:

This 38 Special has a custom 22.5″ top tube! You’ve certainly got some leg room on this puppy.

Makes you wonder if one day you could order a frame, or a complete bike, the same way you order a Dell computer…picking and choosing each element till you get exactly what you want.
