    here's mine:





    Fastest, best-handling hardtail I've ever ridden. It's a very worthy dirt jumper if you build it up as such...

    5.1 lbs for a STEEL frame. C'mon...the choice is obvious.

    Ray, that red 'pimp looks brilliant. The little rasta touches play off nicely - shadow now does their bar end plugs in green, hint.

    So do ya race 4x? Dual? The geo of that bike handles so well, I bet she carves up berms. When I had one, though, I had mad issues with the der hanger sliding in the horizontal dropouts. I'm sure they fixed that by now. Sweet ride, well-specc'd bike my man.

    i had no idea the trailpimp weighed so little. 5.1lbs

    the bike is incredibly large per. the jumps behind it, which are also plenty large compared to the treesss.

    Hey Graydog, can we get a spec list on that one??? Gracias.

    I am also looking into an Atomlab as my next 26", but I think a 20" is on order (hopefully my own custom build with a Haro Convert frame or whatever is best for the moolah, but if money is tight, a Haro Forum Pro/Pro Lite will work).

    I'll need to polish up my skills and I need a bike that isn't going to need much care, as I'm not going to be able to spend a lot on replacement parts for whatever bike I buy. My 24" cruiser is pretty good for this, but I'm waiting for some money to buy an Atomlab Pimp rim and ODSY cassette driver hub as I'm fed up with truing the shitty rear wheel that came with this Haro X24 after every ride. Right now the wheels are like "Strong, Light, Cheap, Pick 1 as long as its cheap." I guess my miserably failed attempts at 360s (actually between 180 and 270 degrees) don't exactly help keep the wheel strong either...

    Anyway, I'm moving away from 26" urban/street bikes for the moment as I realize the simplicity and durability of a 20" is to good to pass up. I'm still going to finish my MC Rumble with good parts though, although it won't be used for anything but trails and some djs until I have money to replace what I break.

    I know, I stray way OT...please forgive me....

    EDIT: Forgot this:

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/sub/1...Fr.aspx?s=2173

    They're budget minded builds with excellent parts for the money. I've heard the Space fork is anything but a typical RST. The Pimp rims are some of the strongest rims there are. I think it's an excellent choice for someone who wants a bomproof bike that can be upgraded to save weight. Why is it listed under the FS FR section? I dunno...

    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
