Bike Of The Day: Justin’s 2023 OS20 Dark Horse Works DH2

Dark Horse OS20 BMX

Today’s Bike Of The Day is a 2023 Dark Horse Works DH2! It was submitted by Justn Simpson who did an amazing job on this build. Justin is the owner of the brand and he does his own welding which is awesome!

Definitely show Justin some love by giving this bike a rating via the sliders below for the February Bike Of The Month and Bike Of The Year charts.

This is my 2nd frame I’ve built, and just finished up with a super clean metallic candy red paint (also did the paint work myself!) I got into frame building late ’22 as a way to better understand what makes a bike work. I’ve been drawn to the low slung aggressive styling of modern race bikes, and wanted to take that a step farther. I’ve really enjoyed riding a low BB bike, and can feel a substantial difference in the stability and carving in turns. The frame came out right at 5lbs, which for such a long frame I feel is pretty decent. I also chose to use thicker butted tubing on this build which really helped smooth out that buttery 4130 ride even further! Check out @Dark_Horse_Frameworks on instagram for more!
