The STRESS Hype BMX frame. Roma Shalimov signature.
 
The gold standard currently is 13″ chain strays but Roma wanted a frame for high bunnyhopping, so he extended the chain strays to 13.1″, plus the dropout allows chainstay length to be further increased up to 13.4″. It’s easier to hop high with the frame this way, but generally it would be a little bit more difficult to spin without short chain stays, if it wasn’t for one ‘but’…
 
The STRESS Hype frame has a non-standard angle of inclination of the headtube – 75.66° – for two reasons: balancing on the front wheel and spins. Everything is clear with the first one: The larger the angle of the headtube, the easier it is to balance on the front wheel. The second improvement is not so obvious. The thing is that the more acute the angle of the headtube is, the shorter the base of the bike is; The shorter the base of the bike is, the easier it spins. Thus, a longer angle of inclination makes up for longer chain stays, and longer chain stays help to bunnyhop higher.
 
Another unusual solution was the 72° inclination angle of the seatpost. Stress have already used the same solution in the STRESS frame called The Aim. As back then, this is done for easier and faster barspinning. The seat becomes closer to the knees, and it takes less time and effort to clench it with your knees.
 
The down tube has been heat-treated just like on the other two frames of the brand. This is done to avoid any dents from unsuccessful grinds.
 
The area where the chain stays are welded to the seatpost is the second most common thing that often breaks according to the breakage BMX frames statistics. That’s why Stress add gussets between the chain stays on all our frames. The gussets evenly distribute the load between the chain stays and the tubes of the front triangle. It actually works. Over the years, Stress has reported no breakage of frames in this spot.
