    Here's my Prophet MX1. Love it, but may switch back to the Talas 36 and DHX 5.0 air to improve the climbing.

    Nothing too much to look at but it gets ridden every day and is definitely the smoothest rolling bike on these streets. I absolutely love this bike

    Even after trying other wheel sizes, I still love this bike.

    Here's my 5ft sons bike in trail setup. I'm done messing with it. He's a lil short so hopefully he'll be on it for a while. Weight is just over 25lbs. It's a pretty stout build imo.

    What bike is that? And is it set up 26+?
    Looking for a Medium Scott Scale frame, preferably a 2012 in 26.

    If you're referring to me, that's a FM076 frame with 3.0/2.8 Ranger tires front/rear, its quite Plus'd.

    So I posted this bike on here when it was new in 2005 and used to be a lot more active but just completed a major update in the last few weeks.

    It was supposed to be just a new rear wheel, so had a custom one made up and accidentally specc'd an XD compatible rear hub...oops. Well then I HAD TO go 11 speed. Got that all put together and discovered the old AVID Juicy 7's were shot. So....

    New hope rear hub, with mavic 719 wheel. Full xt 8000 series stuff 1 x 11. New XT brakes. 8020 front with 203 mm rotor, 8000 series with a 180 in the back. Have had the hope front with mavic 729 in the front for a few years.
    Ghetto tubeless setup and new maxxis tires (rear is on backorder.)

    A grand in parts is still cheaper than a new bike...lol, and I kind of like not having a front derailleur.

    Very nice, have a friend who just picked up this same bike slightly used only.
    He's considerably faster on it than his older enduro.

    I'm now "heckled" often when we ride together, ha.

    DJ bikes can be very fun and versatile.

    I can see a few priority upgrades there. First, much lighter tires, unless you're after Hookworms specifically. Then, a dedicated SS rear wheel to ditch the tensioner, or an RD on the current one, because the dangly roller thing down there could as well be a shifty dangly roller thing.

    Cheers for the replay man, total bike noob here, haven't been on a bike for 10-15 or so years now lol (last bike was a target special full suspension bike) so yeah any parts on the bike are new to me, I added some more pics to my album folder, shows the parts off more...

    You're welcome!

    That roller tensioner above the chainring is seriously old school, and is also not needed with a true singlespeed setup this frame can run. I guess the previous owner had to make do with this geared-specific wheel that's not intended for track ends. The QR skewer isn't clamping hard enough to prevent axle slip, so it's slammed all the way forward and the chain slack and wear are compensated for by the rollers.

    The cockpit might be too low with a flat bar but it's totally up to your preferences.

    You may also want to check the fork function and maybe overhaul it. People tend to neglect forks on their jump/play bikes.

    ah ok yeah I did a decent ride of it yesterday and the back wheel kept moving to the left, was thinking I wasn't tighting it hard enough, but I get to the tightest point the lever down to clamp down, any tighter and I feel like I'm gonna snap it lol....and yeah that roller thing at the crank doesn't seem to do much except make a rolling sound, crank has some sort of crackling to it also, and not sure if the back axle is seized a little or brakes are on too tight has when you free roll the wheel off the ground, it will stop faster then the front wheel does...

    Regarding the forks, they don't move at all, feels like I have a none front suspension bike, seized or just adjusted to be that way???

    Overall when I got it I knew I would need to put some attention to it, but for $100AUD think it was a ok deal (Second Hand store I got it from has no clue what brand/model it was)

    If the rear brake is dragging then it should be audible as a permanent rubbing sound the disc makes as it passes through the caliper. With wheel misalignment in the track ends, disc rubbing is very likely.

    If memory serves, that fork model has "air preload" feature and a crappy, failure prone Chinese rebound cartridge. The Schrader valve that can be seen on the top cap is the air preload. Release air and check compression. If the fork still won't move, then it's likely the damper that's failed. It can be fixed by an open-bath conversion achieved by drilling it carefully with 1.5 mm drill bit in very specific places, and locking down the floating piston inside. Either way the fork should be overhauled, and a failed damper will be obvious upon disassembly as it's the only assembly that won't compress.

    Yeah I press the valve and no air came out lol, back brake seems to be ok, no noise when coasting and what not, lever is smooth and are super touchy, almost came off a few times since I'm not used to them (first disc brake bike)...

    The single speed is something to get used to, feel like I just on a big ass BMX lol...
