Featuring full Chromoly steel, the Witness is incredibly durable and lighter than its hi-tensile steel younger brothers. This bike is complete with fully sealed hubs for protection against dirt and debris while riding and a 3-piece Chromoly crankset for smooth pedaling. Coming in two super sick colorways, the Framed Witness BMX bike has all of the components and features that you need to step up your game, improve your style, and learn the tricks you've been dying to try.

Awesome bike, super tough and barely any issues
I got this bike a few days ago and it's simply amazing at first a lot of the bolts and things were loose but that's mostly because I bought the display model. Everything else just seems bulletproof, I've bailed multiple times on the bike already and I can hardly see a scratch. My only complaints are that the brake pads are kinda slick but they do hold the bike at a stop, second is the pedals bend, a lot, I've already got new ones on the way and they were only 12 dollars so no real show stoppers on this bike. Honestly I'm looking forward to shredding the life out of this bike

This is just an attack pro with sealed hubs and sealed bb and different colors for the same price. This is way better.

You Get What You Pay For
The bike looks awesome, and the frame, forks, handlebars, and wheels feel really nice when riding. The rest of the bike is very cheap. The bottom bracket will not stay tensioned, nor will the headset. Also the stem will not hold the bars in place, and the bolts have already striped out from repeated tightening. I have ordered and am awaiting a new modern bottom bracket, spindle headset, and stem; hopefully that will fix this bike.

For reference, I have been riding this bike on quarter pipes, box jumps, and a pump track. This is my first BMX bike, as I usually ride dirt jumpers.

Overall, this is a great purchase if you are willing to spend at least $100 more for usable components.

Take your risks
I recently ordered this bike and during the shipping my bike was dropped, leaving a hole in the side of the box that the bike came in and from that drop the front forks got bent so badly that I couldn't put on the front tire in assembly. However, I contacted the Framed Bike Company and they shipped me new forks for free. All I am saying here is take your risks when ording this bike, beacuse minr came damaged.

They are similar bikes, but i would pick the attack pro..... 14mm rear hub.
Does it have space for 20 x 2.4 tires?
A shopper on May 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The front fork would be fine but the back would be tight. Ours has 20x2.3 and there is very little room on the rear for clearance.

Both color options of the Witness are In Stock.

According to Framed this bike will be just fine in a park and can be jumped.
What's the difference between unsealed and sealed bottom bracket?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
The single largest difference is that the loose-ball (unsealed) bb will require more careful cleaning maintenance in the long run. Both will perform great, the sealed bb is just something you never have to think about.
If you roll your pedals backwards will it stop you,does it have brakes on the pedals?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2016

No. The Witness does not have coaster brakes. It uses a hand brake and has a standard cassette hub.

A shopper on Aug 18, 2016

We have 2 samples in the shop, and our order is in transit. I understand that backorders are lame.

BEST ANSWER: The tires on a stock witness are 60psi Max tires
Are the hubs on this bike sealed?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
Yes.... they will be sealed.
My grandson is a little shorter than 5' and weighs 85 lbs. Would this be a good starter BMX bike for him? He would like pegs so what size would I order? Can the brake be removed or is it designed to be out of the way when doing tricks?
Jennie V on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jennie,
This is not a simple question to answer.. I apologize. Your grandson is between sizes. Technically an 18" BMX bike http://www.the-house.com/qfrimp18bw17zz-framed-bmx-bikes.html is the correct size for him, but will quickly be too small. The Witness is a great starter bike, and with it's Chromoly frame your grandson can progress with it. The Witness will need 3/8"pegs on the front and back (it does not come with them). The brake can be removed, though I do not recommend it. In the end, I think I would go this route for your grandson... it will be a tic big to start, but he will grow into the Witness in no time. He can ride this forever then.
