Originally released in 1993, the Challenger frame & fork kit was conceived in a golden era of BMX when racing & trail riding could be done on the same bike. It quickly became one of our best-selling frames ever… & now, 30-years later, we’re bringing it back.
According to our March 1994 “S&M Action” catalog:
“The new Challenger frame has become a pretty hot number w/ avante garde hot dogs across the U.S. of A. It’s constructed of aircraft-grade 4130 chromoly & TIG welded for optimum strength & performance. The Challenger’s rear end features a monostay for stiffness, chromoly dropouts for strength, & press-fit head tube reinforcement rings to resist for/aft fork movement. Yes Martha, these are class construction techniques. The lightweight contender come in Pro & Pro XL sizes to fit even the most finicky Moto monsters. Every Challenger comes w/ a top tube-mounted gear chart that flat reeks of trickness. Challenger forks are designed light, tight, & out of sight to slip silently past flying cones & ruptured hay bales during intense berm warfare sessions. Watch the lights carefully, my son, lest ye be bitten by the bear.”
For this very, limited-edition 2022 reproduction kit, we’ve gone w/ a 21” TT, upgraded to a CNC-machined HT & laser-cut drops & added fractional-ratios to our gear chart. A 1” threaded headset, 1” seatpost clamp & S&M Padset are included w/ each kit.
