Guidelines:
Use the product name for the thread title.
The review has to be at least two paragraph long, be interesting and informative to read, and related to the scene, don't do a review on Wallmart or how you hate Verizon. No drive by reviews, no lazy three line long reviews. Include details like price, shipping, availability, anything that a person looking to buy this product would find useful.
Include at least one good picture of the product taken by you that clearly shows the product being reviewed.
Pro and Con breakdown at the end.
You cannot do a review if you sell or are involved financially with the product being reviewed, but you can answer questions.
Absolutely no threadjacking, pornography or any sort of douchbagery, questions and answers must be on point.
Check for an existing product review before starting a new one. Additional reviews for the same product from other members should be added to the existing one and follow the same guideline as above.
Reviews that do not meet the above requirements will get deleted. We want the section to be helpful for users researching products.

PostPosted: Wed Feb 11, 2015 12:38 pm 
Has anybody installed the blade moto lowered seat frame from ebay. to me it appears to be the same frame as the steady garage chimera seat frame but its missing the cross support bar. so my question is do you think I need the cross support bar I weigh about 200lbs.

My gut would say yes, because the seat doesn't give the frame any added strength. That is why all the frames out there have crossbeams. I think it would be flimsy and unsafe to ride without one.

they do look good but with lower bars the lower the seat the better it looks. also with a DORF or CHIMERA frame a slightly higher handlebar looks better as well. I currently have the SWAPT CHICAGO lower seat frame.

This seat frame looks great and it's a comfortable riding position. I got the shaved seat black that was originally red but I got it wrapped in black.

I'm a little late to the party but I've got Blade Moto's on 2 Rucks. Zero problems with them being flimsy, I'm between 220-230 lbs. The only issue that I have on both is that the tolerance on where the seat clip fits onto the seat frame (where the little wire that holds the seat down clips over) is a very tight fit. You have to push the seat down for it to click into place, and on one of the seats I need to use a screwdriver to push it in. I guess that's better than being loose.
