    first bike build

    2001 schwinn homegrown frame
    Marzocchi 130 mm Z1 FR forks
    SRAM PC951 chain
    Avid BB5 Brakes
    SRAM X.9 Front Der.
    SRAM X.9 Rear Der.
    M590 175mm 2pc Crankset w.BB
    Raceface Strafe Lock on Grips
    SRAM PG980 cassette

    frame has no disc brake caliper mounts so I found a pretty cool adapter made by a2z. works great.
    first bike build and I did it on a tight budget

    added a couple older pics before I picked up the z1 forks and before I banged it up riding the piss out of it.

    Damn this thread is inspiring.

    What do you guys think of a Kona Shred frame as the basis for an AMHT setup?

    The head angle is 67 with a 120mm fork. Seat angle is 72.5. How much would the HA change with a 140mm fork?

    The same angles on a BMC full susser I've recently ordered are 66.5/73.5 for comparison, so fairly similar.

    Basically I want to keep the BMC fairly stock but have a AMHT to make look pimping as well as thrash about on.

    I've been d!cking around on a DJ bike for the past few years that Frankenstein would be proud of

    Love this thread btw!

    edit : My other option is getting a on-one frame and starting from scratch. I'm not as confident about that though. Swapping out the forks and other simple things are no problem for me, starting from a bare frame is daunting.

    Hi Map204... thanks for the compliment...

    The frame was an old school Bridgestone mtb... Lugged Tange chromoly tubings Japan made that was released early 90's... It's no longer available in the market today...

    How's the handling on that? Cant imagine it's designed for much more than 63 or 80mm of suspension and that looks like a 130-140mm fork on there. Rad lines but really high bottom bracket.

    Sektors for all intents and purposes are Pikes with power bulge lowers. Great mid-price fork. I picked up a Sektor on clearance and lowered it to 100mm on my DJ bike - buttery smooth and really easy to tune. Lighter than a Tora (or XC32 nowadays) with better damping, not as light or complicated as a Revelation. Super easy to work on if you are interested in servicing the fork yourself.

    It handles perfectly..

    It's actually a 140mm travel..

    1st and 2nd pic..Chainstays still levelled/ parallel to the ground..

    3rd and 4th pic is the headtube angle side by side with my AM fulsus kinesis a650.. They both have 140mm Epicon..

    Ben, you mean) I'm just complete my bike and take a 30km ride without any extreme. But in -10 Celsius degrees It works very good on little snowy bumps, more good that my rs Reba dual air in such conditions. Sorry for my English)

    Is the rear caliper bolted (with an adapter) to the rear rack mounts? Regardless, is the adapter home made, and how does it perform?

    Yes. Exactly. It was bolted to the rear rack mounts.

    It is homemade and i did it personally. Fabricating the adapters is actually a trial and error process, co'z you have to allign the rotors and calipers properly.. in order to achieve it, i started with a plastic made from an old monoblock chair that was broken.. Plastic is easier to grind and drill.. Once you achieve the perfect allignment.. then it's time to trace the plastic using 1/4 inch thick solid steel...

    The adapters are holding up excellently.... on a scale of 1-10.. 10 being the highest.. i would rate it at 10..
