23 Nov Wildwood Cycles – Jesse Hildebrandt

DSC_0270

Most of us at some point or other have had the misfortune of discussing a BMX bike with someone who doesn’t ride. The typical “how does .25 of an inch make a difference?”. Whether it’s top tube, chain stays, head tube angle, stand over or other features, only dudes who actually ride BMX know that .25″ can make a huge difference on how your bike feels.

With every rider wanting their bike to feel a certain way, frame geometries have really changed over the years and vary much more today than ten years ago. With these changes, there’s been a growing demand for custom frames. Although it is a small group of riders who are willing to spend a bit more for exactly what they want, they are out there and take pride in riding a frame which is 100% the way they want it.

Jesse Hildebrandt is a Victoria, BC native who has been handcrafting beautiful bikes in his spare time for some time now. He has been running his own custom frame, the Day Moon, all summer. Jesse shreds so you know this thing is solid.

The frame features:
STAND OVER: 9.4″
BB HEIGHT: 11.8″
REAR END: 13.4″
TOP TUBE: 20.75″
HEAD TUBE: 75*
SEAT TUBE: 71*

“Basically I based the geo off of angles I have always preferred, but decided to go with a taller stand over than anything readily available to the BMX market to be a bit unique. Honestly I almost didn’t even notice the height difference until I tried to hop it over some taller stuff but after getting used to it it feels amazing, it’s way more stable in the air and much more comfortable when sitting down. The frame weighs in at a hair over 4 pounds made of double butted supertherm tubing, with a mid BB, long taper head tube, curved seat and chain stay bridges, and bullet tipped 6mm drop outs”. Additional images can be seen here.

Jesse has been working on Carl Arnett’s frame (above) for the past little while and it also looks amazing.
