    Now that is cool, how does one of these things compare to a 20" bmx bike in a bmx track?

    Dont know yet as I have'nt been there with it yet. And, my local track has changed since the last time I was there too. But, I would say the major difference would be in the whoops due to the wheel size.

    Working on manualing skills will be a big priority on this bike!

    NICE!

    i dont know about running stans on a dj bike though... tubless systems arent really meant to take big hits.

    that is unless your smooth like ME : P haha jk

    I have way bigger hits on my DH bikes than this will ever see, and I have never had a single problem.

    but the suspension on a DH rig absorbs a lot of the impact. for a hardtail taking hits on concrete is absorbed pretty much all by the tyre.
    cool bike though. nice weight, and them juicys do look very sexy in white
    i ride my bi*ch hard

    Its true, the impusle (force over time) delivered by a DH bike onto the tires is actually much less than the impulse delivered by a DJ bike onto the tires, due to the large front and rear suspension, thus increasing the chance of a pressure induced flat in a DJ bike.

    I'm secretly a physics nerd

    Also, SICK BUILD!

    I've run tubeless on my street rig before. I burped occasionally at first, but did not have problems after that. I switched to ultralight tubes... It's lighter and I still haven't had any issues with flatting. And I can run higher pressures.
