The S&M Holy Diver Frame is made in the USA and is designed to tear up the streets with a modern geometry that promotes both strength and responsiveness. S&M's ThermalX Butted tubing ensures that big hits won't keep this frame down. Grind with confidence knowing that the HD's dropouts are 1/4" thick and heat treated for crazy amounts of strength. Simple decals, a laser cut toptube gusset, and a 5" headtube that reduces the number of headset spacers needed all come together to create a look that is simple and refined just asking to be shown off in the streets. The S&M Holy Diver frame is a vision that never dies.
Translucent colors may show small veins of surface rust under the finish. This is normal and does not affect the integrity of the frame.
Note: Frame does NOT include removable brake mount hardware. For brake mounts, check out the S&M/Fit Replacement 990 Mounts.

I bought a Holy Diver to replace my ATF.
The front is easy to lift and the rear is quick and easy to move.
I feel it suits the Japanese body.
I can turn the tailwhip very easily.
The paint is awesome! The Trans Teal color changes and turns to green depending of the sun light.
The welds are just amazing: you can see they are hand made; nothing to do with frames made in Taiwan.
The HD frame is indeed a super responsive frame but keeps the right balance between responsiveness and stability.
The chainstay length 12.7 - 13" and the 5'' headtube are just brilliant. Combined with 1/4'' dropouts, the frame backend is a master piece. A 2.45'' tire fits perfectly: No chain tensioner is needed whatsoever!
Some minor downsides however on the HD :
1. You need to put more spacers then usual to have a 25T sprocket mounted.
2. The decals looks cheap for such an high quality and amazing frame (I removed them!). Please S&M do something about that...
Overall, you cannot get wrong by purchasing this frame if you ride street and you like quality frames.
PS: S&M please release a full breakless version of the HD...pleeease! :-)
