    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.

    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

    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.
