    I posted my bike earlier in the thread, but my parts came in today. I went from 8 speed to Single Speed. I got an e.thirteen Supercharger, a Blackspire DH chainring, a Gusset 1er spacer kit, and a KMC Pintle half link chain. I love it so far, I just wish I would have done it sooner. I'm running 32:16.

    Can it be a street/trail/park bike?

    Mods for a guide on it.

    Pulley instead of roller.

    Good to see you on here.

    Here's the tiny frame I stripped to build the STP. I will be selling it soon I guess. Peeps may want to see a Roscoe built up though.

    <DIV id=post_message_1992008>Well, I bought this Addict Cycles DJ frame. It's super nice. Lot's of machining, good welds, good tubing. Frame weight is a hair under 5 pounds. It's anodized black. I got a real good deal on it. Right after I got it built up, I saw a bunch of them show up on eBay. That kind of bothered me. I thought I was special. Oh well, I'm still the only one in Illinois to have one.<BR><BR>Still minus some bling. I was supposed to get a silver King headset, but they sent me black. Whatever, it was free. Was going to get one of those KMC x9 gold chains and other bits of gold, but huzzah! I found a new Wipperman 9x1 in my parts box, and I know how well they work, so I used that.<BR><BR>Chris King headset<BR>Koski Stronghold Deluxe stem<BR>Titec Hellbent DH bars<BR>Rockshox Pike fork<BR>ODI Rogue lock-on grips<BR>Avid Juicy 7 brakes mated to 203mm Hayes V8 rotors<BR>Hope QR seat collar<BR>Thomson 27.2x330 seatpost<BR>Halo SAS wheelset, bolt-on rear<BR>Truvativ DHLT bb<BR>Bontrager Big Earl cranks<BR>Blackspire Lexan 1/2" c4 bashguard<BR>e13 36t Guide Ring<BR>e13 SRS chainguide<BR>XT Cassette<BR>Wipperman Connex 1x9 chain<BR>SRAM x.9 shifter<BR>SRAM x.9 mid cage rear derailleur<BR>Shimano XTR housing<BR><BR>Real solid build, not much that I want to change. Might change the bar/stem setup and I want a SRAM PG990 cassette. Kidd is helping me out with some laser cut aluminum rotors to try out. I'm skeptical since aluminum has a lower friction coefficient than steel.</DIV>

    <DIV>I'm thinking about modding the Pike so that I can drop it even lower than 95mm and so I can extend it to about 160mm travel. I know it can be done, and I figured out how to do it, but it can be time consuming. I'll have to get a metal sleeve machined for the extension, and I'll need to heat up and spread to spring to reduce it. I'm also thinking about getting rid of the Firm spring and picking up the X-firm.</DIV><A href="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a284/will8is9hot/2b57d2fe.jpg" target=_new></A><!-- / message --><!-- attachments -->

    Chip - I usually don't comment, but that is one bada$$ looking ride.

    Questions:

    - What's the deal w/ Anchor? Haven't heard of them and that stem and sprocket look pretty good.
    - What kind of bars are those?
    - Is the rear tire a 2.3 K-Rad? It looks a bit smaller than the front (which is a good thing). I'd love to see a 2.2 or 2.15 K-Rad available.

    Chip Henderson - did you paint your GI's? I have the same ones in 24" (but the rear is mounted to an Eastern 14mm cassette hub), and anyway, my rims are grey/silver.... I didn't know they came in black....

    nice looking rig, I like the vader look, kind of like my fr bike, flat black like an old duece coupe and no ridiculous "billboard advertisement" all over the frickin' place.... what is the chainstay length on that frame?

    I'm pretty sure you can get some like 1.95 Krads... as well as 1.95 Holy Rollers, Tioga's, and many others... but only in 24" since they are used for BMX cruiser applications.

    Escobar told me about the Anchor Freeride stuff, said he'd try to find out if he could hook me up with one of those stems. I'm in Naperville, any chance I can get my hands on one?

    Thanks man, I love the bike. I just built it up last week. The bars are Kona Cowan bars. A little tall, but I love the minimal back sweep and more upsweep. Flipping the stem gets them in a good position. I'm pretty sure the rear Kenda is a 1.95, and yes, a 2.2 or 2.15 would be perfect. Like a lot of smaller street frames, the Revell has tire clearance issues (same on my Molly).

    Anchor Freeride is my parts company. It's something I've been working on for a while, and this week is the official launch. I don't know if it's cool to post links here, so I'll PM or email you the info...

    Kinda late for me to ask about it, but earlier in the topic that XSL guy mentioned that some people go brakeless. Why on earth would you go brakeless?

    Why wouldn't you go brakeless? Makes things even less complicated, less weight. You have feet to slow you down. Plenty of BMXers run brakeless. It's all up to preference.

    There do come situations where your feet just aren't a good idea for stopping.

    Large, steep hills with lots of rocks and crud spewn around come to mind.

    Chip - thanks for the info. I found on Kenda's site that they make the K-Rad in a 24x1.95 size. I might have to try it out. Thanks for the PM about Anchor - best of luck w/ it. Stuff looks good.

    Mikey - beauty Sinister. I just picked up a used Splinter MXS that I'll start putting together tonight. The Sinister stuff is a work of art.

    A Norco VPS or a Nikolai is NOT a urban/DJ rig.

    Very few squish bikes make for good urban rides. My Kona Coiler didn't even qualify with dual 24s and the Pike at 95mm.

    Besides, some of these rides are surpassing the cost of squish rigs posted in the DH/FR forum.

    really i thought that the best dirtjump bikes would be the most durable comfortable ride as apposed to a durable one with less shock absorption, ofcourse i dont know dj, well i have a ds and after hearing that guess i wont be doing dj...looks like xc for me. and seriously some of these cost more then dh rigs? i doubt it vps' are like 6000 cad and i dont even wanna know how much a nikolai is

    Pimp ride, but I wanted a hardtail for 4x racing and fcuking around in general. The Coiler is less fat than the Stinky. You're not wallowing in the travel. It's lighter and more nimble, but just as burly with the quality of travel being very similar. The TT is about an inch longer, which will make it easier to pedal around, but not neccesarily as easy to throw around. I'm about 5'8" and rode a medium. I think that a small might have been more fun on some of the stuff I rode.

    Look up in the thread a bit for my new ride. 3200+ USD for the build at retail. Plenty of things that can upgraded even further.



    Warmup pics from the last ride with the Coiler. Photographer sucks. Haha.

The TT is about an inch longer, which will make it easier to pedal around, but not neccesarily as easy to throw around. I'm about 5'8" and rode a medium. I think that a small might have been more fun on some of the stuff I rode.
    would you recomend the coiler over a stinky if i wanted to do singletrack, free ride, and downhill....i plan on upgrading it if i get it

    I'd say that depends on which of those is the highest priority. The Coiler will be way more fun on singletrack, and both are pretty capable freeride bikes, but the Stinky will be a better full on DH rig. Your call, depending on what you want to do with the bike.

    Look up in the thread a bit for my new ride. 3200+ USD for the build at retail. Plenty of things that can upgraded even further.



    Warmup pics from the last ride with the Coiler. Photographer sucks. Haha.




    wow, you are lean. how much do you weigh?

    btw i have a diamondback assault '05, bone stock. no pics yet either.

    Buck thirty. Fat composition is something like 4%. Bench pressing about 160. Bicep lift 45 with the right, 40 with the left. Leg press is something outrageous.

    Actually you're #351. And if I remember right, this still isn't anywhere close to being as long as the thread about pot smoking while riding.

    Not if you have the display mode set to linear. Then it says #351. But really, like you said, who cares?

    i'm glad to hear that and it's very reassuring. so you guys have any advice for a nooB? i can bunny hop onto curbs, but it's really hard to get much higher. i'm trying to practice manualing and trackstanding, but i don't have those down yet.

    One little setup tip: lower that stem by a spacer or two so you can yerk up on those bars a bit better.

    Unthread the compression cap, loosen the two stem bolts, slide the stem off, take off a couple spacers, put the stem back on, put the spacers back on top of the stem, tighten the compression cap to preload the bearings (don't make it too tight that the bearings feel rough), make sure the stem is straight, then tighten up the pinch bolts.

    thanks will. would you guys recommend that i take off all the spacers and move them above the stem? and will it cause any problems with that extra stuff sticking above the stem afterwards? i've seen other people's bikes and it doesn't look like theirs stick up as high as mine looks like it will after i move the spacers.

    For all the Molly Maguire owners: Does your headtube ever seem too steep? The head tube angle just wierds me out a bit. Also, what wheels are you guys usually running. One more question: What is the widest tire you can fit inside those u brakes?

    quick question, i have something above and below my chain around the crank that i don't see on a lot of other people's bikes. the one on the bottom looks like a small floating pulley.

    what are those things for and why do i need them? i don't see them on other people's bikes.

    Chain guide. Keeps the chain from coming off the ring when you're doing Evel Kneviel stunts. Or riding across bumpy ground.

    Chain guide. People riding single speed or with a front derailleur don't have them because they don't need them as much. It keeps the chain from dropping.

    I would post a pic of mine. But I have no recent ones, and I have a Drop Off Triple mounted on my P.1 Cro-Mo right now.


    That's right. Come to me, 66-67 degree head angle. Muahahaaa.

    Actually HAB, it handles a lot better than expected. When I stand on the pedals, it sags to about 140mm. It has about a 67 degree headangle so it's nice for steep stuff.

    I'll still run my Pike. I just have to order some ball bearings and springs for the U Turn...

    67* isn't so horrible. And if you have two forks to switch between it should be cool.
