    My 1995 Jamis Diablo vintage build

    This is a recent vintage build - 1997 Judy SL with Englund Air cartridges, powder coated black, roughly as light as an SID. It all started because I've been riding rigid Bridgestones for years and shoulder tendonitis made me want some suspension.

    Got the frame on ebay for $15! Sweet supple steel ride. I LOVE this bike. Whole project cost me $350 as I had the wheels and some parts kicking around. Did I mention I love this bike?

    My Inbred in 120mm fork mode. Doesn't quite feel right at 120mm but I'm thinking of swapping over the frame to a 456 for some more "burlyness" and to make it feel right. Just can't decide on what size of frame!!!!!!

    My Vicious Groover, steel frame. I've upgraded to a 2-1/4 stroke shock to give the full 4" travel in the rear. It's basically Titus Racer X geometry and swing arm, with the excption of the bent top tube.

    Dude your Sycips are solid as hell. My bro has a black Unleaded we built up together with the older style stickers. Great frame I stole on ebay for ~$200 bucks. Northern Cali represented well in this thread.

    Here's my 2007 Ted Wojcik and 1992 Fat Chance Yo Eddy that I sold this year.







    And of course, my favorite of them all, my 1994 Rhygin Ra, which is currently with Chris Igleheart for a single speed conversion and traditional New England segmented fork.

    Thanks,

    In all honesty, it is a bit of a vanity frame. Tony does a fantastic job on the frame and the ride quality is second to none, but I believe that is more a tribute to Tony's abilities than the style of frame itself. For example, the geometry is perfectly tuned and the rear triangle is sculpted and compliant without being a noodle. So he can create a unique frame with vintage appeal that has exceptional characteristics.


    That said, I do believe that there are some advantages to the truss style fork. To begin he builds the fork with the blades are thinner than what you would expect from a typical MTB fork and have a more extreme bend. By themselves, they would probably be too flexy. Tensioning them with the truss creates a completely different feel by providing just the right amount of compliance. Pair that with Tony's expertise that went into the frame and you have one unbelieveable ride in a rigid mountain bike.

    I really find Steel Frame gorgeous with clean lines. The fat allu tubes kind of take away the beauty of geometry. Their almost like old muscle cars timeless Keep making them

    Thanks! It's currently up at Chris Igleheart's shop stripped down to the frame awaiting horizontal dropouts and a traditional New England segmented fork. I'm debating keeping this paint scheme once I get it back, though have an affinity for the Fat Chance Team Violet!
