    How come they don't make those anymore? I thought they were pretty cool.

    I just thought of something, with stable platform shocks, they would be even better.

    i left the company in 2000,, so had no further input into it's development,

    it was a great bike , but very ugly i still have two , i run one as either a single speed or a alfine and with the special dropouts on the bike it allows you to have a qr setup on the alfine

    if it had been developed I think it was prime for a carbon frame fork it could have had a more pleasing shape and lost some weight
    and as you say modern shock technology would have improved what was already a great bike

    I would really like to pick up a PRST-4. I want one that is crack and dent free. The paint can look like crap, because I will polish it. What kind of hubs can you use? Are parts available?

    the adaptors for the dropouts are designed for any 9mm axle qr hub

    I have a prst 1 and a prst 4

    the 4 is my SS or alfine bike

    it also runs a 24" front wheel to get some more weight on the front end ,



    if you want one keep an eye out on ebay uk they come up regularly at a good price

    Just one more ? I see you cut down the steerer tube. But, couldn't you run a 0 degree stem instead of the 24" wheel, to get the front height down?

    no the top link will hit the stem/bars ,, i think it felt sharper with the high angle rise stem rather than a long steerer and zero stem

    29er Truss downtube... Prototype...

    Well thanks to this forum I have been building on my knowledge for some time now.
    This is my Bike, Haven't got a name for it yet.
    I have designed it as a All mountain Single Speed sort of bike, if that makes any sense.
    I jump it as you can see by the low seat, I race XC and Enduro, and I plan on trying to race some downhill on it. I feels very capable but I have not ridden heaps of bikes.
    I made a mistake of making it probably 25mm too short as you can see by the seat all the way back.
    CrMo Tig welded.
    But I am happy, just trying to source some Ti to build the proper one.
    HA 70'
    SA 73' (effective)
    CS 420mm
    TT 583mm (effective)
    BB 295mm

    First Frame; PBL 001

    Here's my first frame built at UBI in February of this year.

    First the front yard shot, then some in its natural habitat.

    Portland. I few years ago I set a personal goal of building my own frame by/for my 30th birthday. At the time there was only the Ashland campus and I didn't know how I'd swing the overall costs. Then the Portland campus opened and, after a while, added a winter brazing class that ended the day before the big 3-0. My commute to UBI was shorter than my commute to work! It worked out wonderfully and the bike is awesome. It was a great experience!

    My own bike

    Here's the latest bike I built myself.



    It's not painted yet because I don't know how I want it.

    But it handles great! Might have to build a custom stem a little longer and higher than the blah C'dale.

    And yes, the cranks are cook bros.

    Here's my 26er after a year of riding. Still haven't broke it yet. I dropped the big ring for a bash, did some mild graphics, and changed out the stem for a 110.
