When S&M unveiled the first BMX frame to feature an integrated headset over 10 years ago, it was met with puzzled looks and optimism alike; would it be that much easier to install?

Back in September, Kurt at the Union gave us this brief look at the new S&M park-specific frame, dubbed The Dagger, that they had on display at the Interbike trade show. While information on it is limited right now, what we do know is that it has double headtube gussets, removable seat stay brake lugs, an integrated seat clamp and is going to be made in small batches; sold with a pair of the responsive 26mm offset Widemouth forks.
As well as the forks being very manoeuvrable, the frame itself is something of a nipper with it’s tight headtube angle, short rear end and low bottom bracket, all making this frame as responsive as possible. No word on available top tube lengths as of yet but with only two weeks until it’s released, we won’t be waiting long.
75.75 degree head tube angle
71 degree seat tube angle
11.6″ bottom bracket height
7.25″ seat tube height
12.8″ to 13.2″ chain stay length
If it looks like your cup of tea, hit up your local bike shop and get them to pre-order one for you ahead of it’s release date.
Take a look at Charlie Crumlish and Craig Passero’s new signature frames from S&M Bikes which will be available soon. The Tall Boy features a super tall headtube and the Whammo features super tech geometry so there is something to suit the majority of riders.
