Head tube angle determines the angle of your forks. A steeper HT (i.e 75°and higher) will make the bike turn quicker than a mellower angle (i.e 74.5 and lower°). The more responsive the frame, the more twitchy it will feel, especially at highspeed!
After a surge of big air and big trails becoming a more prolific stance in BMX the guys at United thought it would make perfect sense to design up a big booster. Australian connect Tyson Jones-Peni and Epsom trail boss Freddie Househam did the numbers and came up with the dimensions for the Knightsbridge frame from United.
Coming in at the bigger end of the spectrum, the Knightsbridge is designed to roost! Starting at 21.125" and working its way all up to 21.625" this frame is an absolute weapon.
This frame has thickened tubing throughout to keep your mind at ease for those inevitable hang-ups, widened BB for extra sprocket clearance on those who like to run a bigger sprocket. Double S bend chain stay for added tyre clearance and a 13.9” back end.
Welded brake lugs and cable guiding for the anchors. Finished off in gloss Merlot Red or gloss raw with graphics drawn by Tyson himself and to give a nod to the United TRU frame, they have opted to go with a head tube badge rather than a sticker.

NEED SOME HELP UNDERSTANDING FRAME GEOMETRY?
bmx frame geometry can look daunting but thanks to our handy guide below you will have it figured out in no time, and remember we're all bmxers here, so if you have any questions just ask.
Frame Size Chart
Frame Sizing is very much a personal preference, some riders like them longer, others shorter - here's a rough guide - if you have any questions remember we are here to help!
3ft - 4ft - best suited to a 16" or 18" wheeled bike
4ft - 5ft - 18" to 20" top tube
5ft - 5ft 4" - 20" to 20.25" top tube
5ft 4" - 5ft 8" - 20.25" to 21" top tube
5ft 8" - 6ft - 21" to 21.25" top tube
6ft Plus - 21" top tube or longer
Frame Geometry can take a bit of understanding - but here at SourceBMX we are here to help! The first thing to understand is that BMX frame Sizing is best measured by the length of the Top Tube - shown here as TT. Keep reading on to understand how the angles change how your frame will feel and check out our sizing chart below!
Headtube Angle (HT)
Chain Stay Length (CS)
The chain stay is essentially the length of the rear end of the bike. A shorter CS length will make the bike more responsive and a longer one more stable. As a rough guide a 13.5" long chain stay is about average.
Seat Tube Angle (ST)
Seat tube angles don’t vary too much (around 71°) and affect the centre of gravity. The steeper the angle the shorter your bike will feel. Some frames have a mellower seat tube angle (example 69˚) which makes for a longer frame without actually being longer and reduces how fast your frame turns.
Stand Over Height (SO)
Standover height is essentially how high your frame is. A frame with a low standover height is more responsive and easier to ‘throw around’ whilst a high SO height is more stable; particularly useful when going fast.
