    Yeah, I've had mine setup as a single speed for rays indoor mountain bike park. It was super light as a single speed. It flowed pretty well and was super easy to control in the air. So for the fact that it's an all mountain frame, it jumps surprisingly well. Just get a small frame if you want to use it for jumping though. The seat (even all the way down) is a little high for dirt jumping.

    Good info. Thanks. It seems pretty stiff so it seemed like it would live up to its name in the air. Every so often one turns up cheap on craigslist and I've considered picking one up to be my street bike.

    I was thinking I'd just pick up a small frame when one becomes handy. I've seen them locally closer to what I'm looking for. Thanks anyway.

    DO you ride them pretty hard? Where they worth the cash? The hubs strung to them on my kona where thrashed so I replaced the wheelset after a couple months and never got to see how the rims did.

    I have an 09 XE that I bought to use for a bit then save the frame for a beefy build in the future. It weighed 32lbs. Depending on some of the stock builds the Response is suppose to be 30-35 lbs and no less.
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    the brakes are hard to adjust, but they'll stop you most of the time. Get some old bb7's used and get new pads and that'll do it.

    I recommend the tora fork. cheap and reliable.

    You might want to look for some new drive train, but no hurry. I'd slowly build up to really good components, then buy full suspension frame after a couple years and you'll find you have a top notch bike that you've learned how to use to it's potential.

    would putting a 140mm fork on mine be too much for the frame to handle?

    After weeks of reading reviews and checking my LBS for different bikes, I finally decided to get a 2011 DB Response Sport yesterday. I am going to pick it up later noon at the store after the tune-up. Going to post some photos here once I have it.
