    It is a GI Dirt front wheel. (rear is and old mavic 721 on an XT hub)

    That pic was taken last night, on the very first shakedown run with that front wheel and front brake (BB5). I received them in the mail earlier that day so I cant really give a comprehensive review yet.

    Out of the box the wheel was really nice - rim strip installed from the factory, even spoke tension and super smooth hub. On the bike its solid, laterally stiff, and the bolt on axle is tough. Atomlab puts out good product and this looks to be money well spent so far.

    That's one of the nicer Steelheads I've seen. I like those downtube graphics.

    Coming from an 04 DJ2, it is lighter. The adjustable rebound is nice to have, but I dont use it much. I have the fork pumped up to about 15psi in each leg, stock oil, and spring. I lowered it to 65mm, and might go lower. This fork is perfect for me right now.

    Here's mine...

    Hopefully nothing would break again for the next year or so. I've converted to SS, replaced the fork & wheelset w/in the last 2 months.

    Nice!
    What gear is that? Looks like you could take a link out of that chain....

    32/16 usually works almost perfectly on an STP, I ran mine with that gear and didnt even need the tensioner.

    Thanks, Sittingduck! I just converted to SS for this bike so I have 32/18 to be conservative for now (the legs are weak). I tried taking out a link but it was too tight - it's kind'a too odd of a chainstay length for this gearing. Although I am starting to think of going 32/16 so based on what you're saying, I guess the tensioner's gonna be in the tool box for a while. The cranks on your STP looks really nice! Pretty huge there on the second pic!

    EDIT: I installed the 16t last night & I'm loving it! Yep, the tensioner's in the tool box now & I took out a link. I'll find out how it is on the trail going to the local jumps & see if it's harder to pedal. Good call, sittingduck.

    Nice looking rig. Do you know (or can you check) if the chainstay/seatstay will clear a 203mm rotor? Thanks.

    Behold!!! My fully stock STP in XC/commute mode (high saddle)...





    Anshwa:
    What's up. I had to snatch this bike for the price, even though I do kinda wish the frame was large (for mental XC reasons), but thanks for your insight. BTW, nice rig...

    Just a Hardrock comp Disc. Stock except for Bontranger Sport cranks i got for free after i warped my truvativ cranks.
    I know it's not even a urban bike really, but it's still fun as hell acting like an arse and jumping off of random things.

    I hope you aren't riding that fork in the lowered position. You'll break the "wings." I had one, and I've reduced the travel on 6 or 7 of them. Atleast 4 of them had broken travel adjusters, resetting them didn't work, the "wings" that clip onto the spring were deformed.

    Yeah, the tire says 2.5, and so does the tube, so i think it's ok.

    it depends what rim it's on.

    and the tire is only good for stairgaps (which aren't urban as far as i am concerned) anyways...

    Hookworms roll smooth and are nice for stair gaps, but they're overly heavy. You don't need a DH casing for urban.

    Hookworms only look narrow because of the round profile. DH tubes are hardly neccesary, learn to pump up your tires and you won't pinch flat. I ditched my DH tubes for the cheap-o ones.

    i run 1.75-2.25 reg tubes and have had no probs.. i might give a light weight xc tube a go and see how they hold up.. might not last for the rear, but ill be def be running the lightest tube i can up front.

    Pinch flats happen when the tire is too small for the tube. Then the tube won't inflate completely and you get flats. When it's the other way around, you'll just make your tube explode.

    Stair Gaps

    I don't care to do stair gaps, and I ride street/urban, what else would you call a stair gap, it not XC, or AM. Would you call it freeride or DH? I wouldn't think so, if you can do it on a 20, and its on the street, then its Street/Urban

    No... A pinchflat is when the tube is pinched and punctured. Thus the name. Like when the sidewall of the tire folds over, or if the tire fully compresses. Or when you're an idiot and try to put in your own tube with a spoon, pinch it between the rim and the bead, then come to my shop and tell me the tube is defective. You CAN pinch a tube by using one that's too big. I just realized what you were trying to say. But that's not the only way you pinch a tube. Plenty of DHers run regular tubes, they stretch quite a bit.

    my favorite is the screw driver...fvckin idiots...

    on a similar note though, i actually had a brand new tube today with a pinch flat already, straight out of the box, it was awesome...fvckin trek (idiots)...

You CAN pinch a tube by using one that's too big. I just realized what you were trying to say. But that's not the only way you pinch a tube. Plenty of DHers run regular tubes, they stretch quite a bit.
    Hehe, i just use my fingers and some soapy water to slip it on.
    Can't the tube explode though? The tire will still feel soft because it's not being hardened by the tube, so you keep pumping, and eventually the tube explodes. Is this right? Of course, if you had an air pressure meter, that shouldn't happen, but i thought they'll explode.

    If you run high PSI, tires, you need some type of lever, I like to use 90 to 110 psi tires on my 20" you can't get an S&M mainline on with out a couple of levers.

    a tube will not explode inside the tire unless your trying to run a skinny ass tube like a road tube in something like a hookworm. THe tubes can stretch a lot. Tires only stretch a tiny bit compared to the tube, so its the tire stopping the tube from stretching and making the psi go up. take a tube by it self and try to get it to 90 psi, if it doesnt pop, youll see how big it is compared to teh tire.

    Why would you be running that high PSI while trying to get the tire and tube onto the rim? Don't you usually just deflate the whole thing first and then inflate it once everything's on?

    Didn't your STP have v-brakes, crappy painted white hubs, and a Marzocchi DJ3 on it like a month ago? And I thought you had a black frame?

    Finally Dedicated

    I finally set up my Transition as a dedicated urban bike. Picked up the fork for 100, and the generic red hoops with SRAM hubs for 75 on eBay... perfect for wrecking on ledges!

    That's actually really sick looking.

    Reduce that Sherman. Don't throw down on it in the lowered position, you'll break the "wings" in the travel adjuster. Wait nevermind... I forgot. You used chapstick.

    Alright, it's my turn to bite. The insurance has finally paid up and I was able to afford a new rig to replace the '05 Kona Stuff I had, here it is!

    It is stock for now, I'll replace things as they break.

    im not quite sure about the bb and seatpost but im pretty sure the bottem bracket is a raceface ISIS bb and i think its just the standard size (83mm?).

    o yeah and will i did have a go at the white hub thing but it came out like crap so i took apart my wheel, cleaned the hub and bought a mavic D321 rim because i had it apart anyways.

    I tried hopping on a 2' that I always hop on my way to my girlfriend's. I hopped the same way I would've with my other bike that had gotten stolen(that happened april 28th, so I hadn't ridden in all that time) and I litterally went flying over the ledge, overclearing it by at least a foot. So yeah, it rides great

    My stock P.2, bought new in '04. New fork coming very soon, and does anybody know if I can fit an e.13 bash guard over the Truvativ BoxGuide? I'm surprised my chainwheel is only slightly bent for how many times I've hit it.

    Repost attempt...

    Here's my first DJ/Urban/Park bike. Now I just need to learn how to ride.

    Phase 1 of my build:


    BTW I know the brake cable is too short. I only X-Up to the left, just kidding, I'm replacing it as soon as my new lever comes in. As well as adding the E 13 bash guard, some ruffian grips with red lock rings, holy rollers, zuzu pedals, and a different seat if I find the one I like.

    I like the bikes too. You should match the sherman on that P bike with some urban camo MTX rims.
