NS Bikes Capital 26 Frame

NS Bikes Capital 26 Frame
This item is currently not available.


The Capital is a dedicated street frame. Available in one version for 26”, with radical geometry and ultra-short chain stays.

The Capital uses multi-butted tubes that are super strong in critical stress areas but also not too thin overall - therefore more resistant to dents resulting from crashing and throwing the bike - something that is inevitable in street riding. Don’t worry too much about the weight... you will see abused bikes built on Capital frames hitting the 9 - 10kg weight mark. We made the frame strong enough even for the most hardcore riders.

This radical frame is the brainchild of "RNS" our test rider and product manager. The Capital comes with narrow seat stays and U-brakes which are the better solution for the street, providing plenty of power, modulation, and a clean look 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. 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 spec come straight from 20” world - a BMX hub (110x14), Spanish BB, integrated headset, integrated pivotal post, removable U-brakes bosses in the case you need them... simply a pure street frame. Capital comes now with an integrated tapered IS42/IS52 headtube with gyro tabs working perfectly with all-new short travel dirt jump suspension forks. Not compatible anymore with the RNS fork.
