This frame is the aluminium version of the extremely popular Meybo carbon HSX that mimics the geometry and specifications of its more expensive sibling, with only a very small weight penalty. So small that when built, the difference would be negligible.
Sitting around half the price of the carbon frame, the Meybo HSX alloy frame doesn't sacrifice in the way of features. Manufactured from 6061 T-6 multiple butted hydroformed tubing and utilising the same fixed dropout system and flat mount disc caliper set up, it brings to the gate the same simplistic design that has seen the HSX series become popular on the UCI circuit. And not just favoured buy the Dutch, riders all over the world appreciate the ease at which gearing changes can happen.
We love these Meybo frames for their simple clean graphics that state perfectly their no nonsense approach to winning. Touches like full internal cable (hose) routing makes building these frames up child's play. Plus it looks so clean! Make no mistake though, the HSX range has all the attributes of dialed geometry, stiffness and proven on the track performance.
This aluminium HSX frame isn't the poor cousin of the carbon frame, it's an astute choice for the racer that will likely put the savings towards other key performance components such as carbon fibre rims and Onyx hubs to build a top shelf BMX race bike capable of competing at the highest level of BMX.
