S&M Holy Diver Frame Review


This Holy Diver frame is a popular choice for s&M lovers. That sounds bad… Anyway, The trans colors are amazing. I’m in love with that red. The geometry is designed to be quick and responsive, which is different for most s&m frames that aim for a controlled ride.

✅ – Light at 4.65 lbs
✅ – Heat-treated 4130 chromoly
✅ – Responsive street riding

Price & Weight are comparative to how good the deal is.

S&M Holy Diver Frame Overview

Designed to be responsive and built to take a beating. Thick, micro shaped heat-treated drop-outs are ultra-strong and allow for ample peg clearance. Taller head tube reduces the number of spacers needed. Laser-cut top tube gusset for added strength. Modern street geometry works well on almost all terrains.

A: Top Tube Length: 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

3 size options give you a few choices.

B: Chain Stay Length: 12.7″ – 13″ – Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a medium length chain stay. It provides a good balance for control and responsiveness.

Run it slammed for 12.7″

Run it extended for 13″

C: Head Tube Angle: 75º – 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: 11.7″

F: Stand over height: 9″

This is a tall standover. A tall standover gives you more control with barspins and t-bogs. But makes whips harder.

Conclusion

If you are a technical street rider, you will like this frame. The responsive back end and tall standover give you control and responsiveness. Never doubt the quality behind these s&m parts, even with a $400 price tag.
