    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...

    The Super T you have is really a very good fork. I'd take that fork over a Fox 40 or a Boxer unless i was entering a fashon contest instead of a race

    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.

    hookworms are narrower than 2.5, more like 2.3.

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

    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.
