  1. This is a frame I wanted to make with a standard bottom bracket shell and slotted dropouts and standard seat post. This would have been an entry level Rumblefish and a 2nd model. True temper Chromoly main tube. Wishbone seat stays and aero tubing front struts. I made a Rumblefish fork, Rumblefish handlebar/stem combo and Rumblefish cranks. Browning 2 speed, spin wheels.
  2. Rumblefish t-shirts. I have all styles and most sizes in stock.
  3. Yeah, I’ve rode it around the neighborhood and it feels nice. I can’t wait to do some more serious riding.
  4. I wanted to do a moto influence build. Something like what a 70’s or early 80’s bike would be but with modern parts. I built the frame with some ideas I’ve had for years. The split tubes at the seat tube (80’s track bike Regie). Down tube pierces the bottom bracket and capped. A one off 7005 aluminum/4130 Chromoly triple clamp fork with disc brake mount. Hope front hub with 20mm through axle. Hope front and rear brakes. Renthal handlebars.

  8. Bicycle Motocross. It was to emulate motocross. As a kid I loved motocross. I had a motorcycle and a bicycle. When I could not ride my motorcycle I rode my bike. I had motorcycle handlebars a tank, fenders with a mud flap and 3 number plates on my bike. I tried to make my bicycle to look like a motocross bike. Like others I would put cards in my spokes and also a balloon to sound like a 4 stroke motorcycle. 1972
  9. 1st Rumblefish frame built. Had to over come chain line issues and resign the rear end for production. Frame was built with True Temper chrome and Columbus Nivacrom (40% stronger then 4130). All tubing was manufactured in the shape that’s on the frame, it’s not round tubing smashed into an oval. In the mid 80’s I could buy a GT Pro Series frame and fork from GT for $35.00. The main tube on the Rumblefish cost me $35.00 from True Temper. Just a single tube was $35.00. Not all chromoly is created equal. Standard 4130 is relatively cheap. Tubing from company’s like True Temper (sadly out of business) and Columbus are much lighter and stronger but cost much more. Geometry was taken from a Rebel General Lee. I really like the way this bike rode. It came out of the gate quick and fast. It turned very good and was stable in the air. A well rounded bike. Short rear end and long front. I design all my bike to be race oriented first, I grow up riding and racing Bmx and motocross. I always loved the factory built motocross works bike of the day. This was the idea of Rumblefish, a works Bmx race bike for pro riders. Thanks for looking. Thanks for looking.
