With its radical geometry and multi-butted tubing, the Capital is a street riding frame that’s ready to tear up the streets and take a beating as you hone your tricks. The butted CrMo Steel tubing has been strengthened in key stress areas, yet the frame has not been made too thin overall so it resists dents from those inevitable drops and crashes. Despite all this extra strengthening, the frame still comes in at only 2.6kg – meaning once built up your custom street bike build should come in around 9-10kg.
Stiff and Strong Street Bike Frame
NS Bikes made the frame strong enough even for the most hardcore riders. This radical frame is the brainchild of "RNS" - the NS Bikes test rider and product manager. The Capital comes with narrow seat stays and U-brake mounts which are the better solution for street, providing plenty of power, modulation and a clean looks with nothing to catch on your trousers. It has completely removable brake hardware so it will look pure for those who prefer to go brakeless.
26er Frame for BMX Components
The Capital is not a big street BMX cruiser. The geometry is radical but you can still use short travel suspension. But the parts that you should fit come straight from 20” world - a BMX hub (110x14mm), Spanish bottom bracket, integrated headset, integrated pivotal post, removable U-brakes bosses in the case you need them... simply a pure street frame. The Capital comes now with integrated tapered IS42/IS52 headtube with gyro tabs working perfectly with short travel dirt jump suspension forks.
