Li-Rai Isaiah Jordan Signature Frame
Isaiah Jordan wanted a frame that would take hop whips & other jumping tricks. We went a step further and built a flatland frame that can take any type of riding- The “Li-Rai” Isaiah Jordan’s Signature frame. But that still has the similar looks, specs, and weight (sub. 4lbs.) of a modern day flatland frame. Using OX Platinum Tubing and having it built by Standard Bykes(Made In USA) helped us achieve these goals.
The photos are dark to only give you a sample of what’s to come. With so many of you requesting to see it before the production models are sold, we give you these photos. Including a few specs with a description of why we built it this way, you’ll get a better idea of this modern flatland frame.
- OX Platinum Tubing (heat treated chromoly)- We used this material to further reduce cracking and breaking. No Top or Down Tube Gussets needed.
- Enclosed Dropouts- Using this type of dropout prevents bending. And to be used with the newer, female axle hubs. A 14mm open dropout version of this frame will be available also.
- Top Tube Sizes- Because no rider is the same we offer 3 sizes- 19.0″, 19.25″, 19.5″
Li-Rai (long version)
The larger version of the Li-Rai frame is for the flatland riders that prefer open dropouts and a longer overall frame to be used for the other disciplines of riding. We went with FBM Bikes( Made In USA) for this frame to achieve a different look but still maintain similar qualities of the Signature Li-Rai. Using SuperTherm tubing, Double Gussets, 14mm Heat Treated dropouts, this frame can handle more than just flatland.
- Top Tubes Choices on this Li-Rai frame are 19.5″, 19.75″, 20.5″.
- To keep things smooth, the integrated seat post clamp used is a wrap around clamp with a captured nut.
- Weight is estimated 4lbs.
We would like for you to get involved with the designs of these frames before we release the production models. This is to give you a product that you’ll want to buy.
