bmx street frames

Are you searching for the best BMX street frames?

You do not need to search yourself; I collect them all here for you.

Instead of rocking an old frame forever, the time may be right for you to upgrade.

Note: Mainly, the modern geometry street frame has a STEEPER head tube and SHORTER chainstay. Still, not all follow this style to a tee.

Some of the best BMX street frames that I have here are better for technical riding, some for gaps and going fast, while the third ones are all-around.

Modern street frame geometry is steeper & shorter

Moreover, they come in different sizes and color options, ensuring something for everyone.

In addition to that, even if you are not a brakeless rider, many of them allow brakes. (But you need to purchase the hardware separately).

Also, many BMX frames are pro riders’ signature frames. Your choice is pretty obvious if you are a fan of any of these riders. (I rode Kruk’s Network frame for a while.)

Best BMX Street Frames

Note: Frames are listed in no particular order. (The 1st one is not necessarily better than the 18th one – all are sick!)

1. Raekes

fiend raekes frame
I’m sure Johnny Raekes‘ signature Fiend frame is the right fit for you if you’re into technical riding.

It comes in three top tube sizes and two colors with removable brake mounts (but these don’t come with the frame).

I’m particularly a fan of Raekes’s taller standover height at 9.5″. Not only does it make the bike look better, but your seat also doesn’t need to stick out that much.

Also, the 8mm thick investment cast dropouts are MAD.

What makes the Raekes frame extra tough are the ovalized down tube and chain stays.

Short and step for all your technical wizardry, that’s Raekes!

Raekes specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.6”, 20.8”, 21”
  • Head Tube: 75.5°
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • Chainstay Length: 12.9”
  • Standover: 9.5”
  • BB Height: 11.6”
  • Weight: 5.2 lbs 20.75”
  • Price: $389.99 (may vary)

3. WeThePeople Doomsayer

wtp doomsayer bmx street frame
The Doomsayer frame from WeThePeople is Jordan Godwin’s signature frame which according to WTP is a “natural progression of the battleship frame combined with Jordan’s specific needs.”

The Doomsayer frame has a higher bottom bracket height and investment cast dropouts than the Battleship and Jordan says on their site that it is exactly what he wanted and nothing he would change about it.

The seat stay tubing on the Doomsayer has also been strengthened to help frame twisting from Jordan’s hard spins.

In addition, this is a brakeless frame and also has built-in chain tensioners on the dropouts.WeThePeople’s lifetime guarantee covers this frame.

Finally, it is one of the steepest BMX street frames out there right now.

4. Cult Dak

cult dak
This is the very signature frame from the one and only Dakota Roche. Everybody knows Dak, which means his street frame must be solid, strong and responsive.

And that is exactly what you get if you decide to opt for the Cult Dak frame.

Keep in mind along with the black, this frame also comes in other colorways, which you can find on the official website or your favorite dealer.

What’s cool about the Dak frame is that it comes in four different top tube lengths, covering riders of different sizes easily.

It also has a steeper head tube so you will get on the front wheel effortlessly. Finally, the rear end is short but not too short, ensuring you can ride all-terrain without a sweat.

5. WeThePeople Pathfinder

wtp pathfinder
Here we have Felix Prangenberg’s signature frame from WeThePeople called the Pathfinder. In 2020 the frame was given a complete revamp over previous iterations with changes including; a shorter chainstay, new graphics, and an offset thickness chainstay and bottom bracket shell.

This offset thickness means that the chainstay tubing and BB shell are thicker “in areas susceptible to grind damage.”

This difference in thickness is visible in the chainstay tubing and is noticeable when taking a closer look at the BB.

The shorter chainstay is now 12.75” at the minimum versus 12.95” at minimum previously and this is a brakeless frame with external top/down tube gussets.
WeThePeople’s lifetime guarantee covers this frame.

Note: Check the latest Felix Prangenberg bike check to see what parts he rides.

Pathfinder specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.75” – 21”
