S&M Whammo Frame Overview

Craig Passero’s new signature Whammo frame from S&M. This frame is made from tough butted true temper supertherm chromoly tubing.

With a 75.25° head tube angle, 71° seat tube angle, 11.8″ bottom bracket height, 8.75″ standover height and 13.3″ chain stay length you get super responsive geometry.

Gussets on the top and down tubes keep this frame nice and rigid, 14mm 4Q-baked heat-treated drop outs provide strength at the rear end and comes with removable brake mounts on the seat stay (hardware not included).

The Whammo is available in top tube lengths of 20″, 20.5″, 20.75″ and 21″.

S&M Whammo Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 20", 20.5", 20.75", 21" - Learn what size is right for you here.

Good size options for all riders.

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.3" - Learn About Chain Stays Here

Long back end. For a more controlled street feel.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75.25º - Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.8"

F: Stand over height: 8.75"

This is a medium standover. A medium standover gives you more control with barspins and t-bogs.

Conclusion

If you want a strong American made frame, you will love the whammo. It is built perfect for riders who have a Craig Passero type style. I'm 99% sure that you get a year warranty with an s&m frame too. Which makes it super worth it.
