    Build my Black Market Mob frame

    So Im getting a Black Market Mob frame for dirt/street/park and am indecisive and cant decide how I want it built up.

    If you were building a bike for those purposes how would u spec it?

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Edit- anyone ride one? Have any pics?

    any bmx cranks for SS. you dont need profiles for what youre doing unless youre loking to spend unnecesary money. length is your preference
    if you want you can go front brake its all preference, i would but its not imperative
    ck headsets are wastes get a pig dh

    spec list would consist of :

    rigids (or short travel set very stiff)
    24's built on odessy hazard lite rims
    primo hollowbite or powerbite cranks
    the gnarliest little sproket you can find
    halflink chain
    shadow conspiracy seat
    beffy platforms for pedal grinds
    odessy single bolt headset
    answer protaper bars (gold is prefered)
    grips are always a nice tounch but thats up to you
    some pink ribbons comming out of your bar ends( for super stylish bar spins)
    and for ultimate respect no brakes..... oh and you must spray everything gold with cheap spray paint for that authentic feel

    now that would be on sweet set up IMO
    God made dirt so dirt dont hurt: it's the rock you have to worry about.

    my friend has his built up perfict, dual 24" doubletracks
    hayes nine brake (rear only)
    sherman jumper (or when he wants to) he puts the 4-5" travel funn stiffy rigid fork on it
    halo twin rollers
    (specialized rear hub and hope front)
    SS setup
    cranks are WTP with primo pedals. its pretty nice, I rode it on the skatepark, it feels better than my P.1. whatever you do, get some BMX cranks and the sherman jumper or gold . you could also run a rigid though.

    Okay, never get 24"s for a Black Market. The whole point of them is for them to ride like bmx bikes WITH 26" WHEELS! Do not use 24"s.

    And please dont use rigid. Keep that to the bmx bikes... Get an 80mm fork, you pick.

    Alright thanks guys.

    I was thinking however that I wanted 24 inch wheels, its my understanding that they are easier to flick around. Also the advantage of bigger wheels is their ability to roll over things? Something that I dont see as being needed for this kind of bike.

    So if a black market isnt a good bike for 24s, what is?
