    Here's my new bike I've been slowly building. I've been using it as a bit of a do it all type bike, however it's more focused towards the urban/street side of things.

    Frame is an Evil Faction, Fox 831 forks, E13 LG1r cranks, Formula R1 brakes etc.
    I'd like to swap the bars to some 3" risers as the current ones are a bit low and not wide enough for my liking. Other than that I'm really enjoying riding

    Cheers
    Benno

    A promising build.. the bars don't look anywhere near low to me, but that's subjective of course.

    Have you tried single speeding it?

    I have thought about single speeding it, however will stick with the 1x10 setup for now.

    I have to compensate my lack of skills with some bling It manuals beautifully, and bunnyhops feel much less labor intensive than on the '07 Ruckus DJ it replaced. I even managed to pull off my first bunnyhop to manual while screwing around yesterday (albeit it was on a 5" curb...)

    This is my pride and joy - an old 2005 Giant STP.

    This is more of a before image, currently converting to single speed and swapping out these heavy old 2.5 High Rollers for a pair of Schwalbe Table Tops, new pedals and stem and professionally respraying the forks and frame a combination of different blacks...

    Just Bought my First DJ.

    I am new to this site and to dirt jumpers. I ride BMX, but now that i moved out to the middle of the desert i was looking for something a little better and bigger to ride.
    The one and only Bike shop here is a khs dealer and he happened to have a very slightly used, pretty much brand new 05 KHS dj100 stock. which he put new bontrager tires on.
    So i bought it for 200. figured it was a good deal. Was it?

    Few Questions tho.

    i am soon going to be switching out a few parts and upgrading it. Thinking about making it a single speed. also to lighten it. Any reasons not too?
    Need a cheep starter pair of forks that are strong. What should i buy?
    Also i was never really scared to break my bmx doing 180s and stuff, but i feel like i might break something on this one. You think it will hold up?

    Well thanks for any help.

    Twitch0601,
    welcome to the forums.

    1. I have not had experience with KHS DJ frames, but there are threads on MTBR and other places about it. From the photo, geometry on 2005 looks outdated though (modern DJ frames have less standover height, shorter chainstays and often lower BB). This frame looks more like a do-it-all.



    2. $200 sounds about the maximum amount that I'd see myself paying for that bike in new condition.

    3. It makes perfect sense to single speed a DJ bike.

    4. For the fork, take a look at Manitou Circus Comp. It's not light at 2.4 kg, but it's inexpensive, quality made, strong, works great and has adjustable shim stack damping. I ride one myself. If you want the same but lighter, go for Circus Expert.

    5. About the frame, I don't know. But you may want to build a stronger rear wheel.

    Wow! There are some very impressive bikes in this thread! Very nice.

    Once I get my post count up I will put some pictures of my recently tuned up 2001/2002 Specialized P.3

    I rode Dj and Mountain bike trails for about 7-10 years then got a license and fell into the whole car scene (Used to have an amazing 2006 Jeep SRT8) but now I live in Hoboken, NJ and while everyone walks, riding a bike is definitely faster.

    My P.3 I just got back a few days ago from Port Cyclery in Port Washington, NY (If you ever go there - definitely ask for John - great guy who knows his stuff!)

    Either way, my P.3 is pretty stock except for thicker Oil combination in the Marzocchi Fork I never took out from my tril riding days but the rebound is still adjustable so might be doing that soon. Also I had Kujo DH mud/mountain bike tires on the bike, but just switched out to Maxxis Holy rollers which I love since now 90% of my riding is on pavement - also have the seat switched out to a Titec Dh saddle (not sure on the name), THE Black Front Fender, Powergrips straps on the peddles, and recently installed a Specialized Speedzone Wireless Sport computer.

    I don't do nearly as much dirt jumping as I used to, but have always respected the sport. I will be using my bike mostly on greenbelts and path trails Either way, as always, safe riding guys and gals!

    2005 XL Chameleon

    Kenda K-Rad tires til they wear out. I throw a Nevegal up front for dirt days.

    I'm 6'9" and this bike is a blast. Frame was too small for XC/AM so I bought some high rise bars and a fork and dug around the garage for the rest of the build.

    My 2001 or 2002 (forget what year) Specialized P.3
    Pretty much stock except for a few changes
    Fork: Marzocchi Z3.5
    Seat: Titec DH Berserker Saddle with titanium rails
    Tires: IRC Kujo DH for the trails/durk and Maxxis Holy Rollers for my everyday tire (just installed so nice)
    Pedals: Stock Specialized P.3 pedals with metal pins and added on Power Grips straps
    Grips: Just ordered ODI Rogue Lcoking grips
    Computer/Cyclometer: Specialized Speedzone Sport Wireless
    Toby Hendersen Enterprises (THE) Black Front Fender
    Lizard Skins Chainstay and Headset Guard (Black)








    Bike is an absolute blast - fast, maneuverable, relatively light bike - frame is a medium size.

    The taper locks are really simple and easy to use. The frame also built up easy with no problems. It's a good frame.

    Twosixbikes... Is that your company?

    Am I correct to assume that the geometry is more oriented towards AM/DH type riding, at least on this particular prototype? (slack HA, low BB, lot of tire clearance, etc)

    Co-owner yeah

    went for a mix of street/dj/trail

    12"bb
    22.5 TT
    14" seat post
    15.25 chain stays ( this photo chain is a bit loose so tire is far back)
    69 head angle
    42" wheelbase

    also i left spacer under headset and have a decent rise so front looks a little tall. but im 6'4 so had to make it comfortable for my frame.

    Cool. Thanks for the info.

    Other than BB height, the spec actually looks pretty close to a typical DJ frame. I guess you can't judge it from photos, eh?

    Looks like a nice fun bike!

    Just 10mm bolt on hubs, then if you look inside the dropout theres a long set screw coming in at an angle from the underside of the dropout. it pushes the wheel back to tighten chain/straightenwheel/and stop wheel from coming forward in case bolt becomes loose etc.

    Nice Spesh! And the jumping spot too )


    I checked out the geometry on that Zircus and am very impressed. 385 mm Aluminum (!) tubular (!!) chainstays, 34T chainring, AND room for 2.35" tire! Custom frame makers seem to have trouble doing those numbers (even 32T ring) in steel, that is with smaller OD tubes.

    Here is my brand new 2012 trek ticket exchange. Got a really good deal since the lbs is getting ready for 2014 bikes to arrive and this is a discontinued model. Haven't seen many of these around, not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I'm sure it's not the most ideal dj/urban bike but so far I love it! I'm sure it'll be just fine for my skill level (or lack thereof). Bike is all stock. Only thing I feel like changing is the bars. Could use a little bit higher bar.

    Nice one. You could go for an even higher rise bar AND cutting down fork steerer tube to run it without stem spacers (lower stem is a good thing IMHO).

    Also, check if there's enough front brake hose length to run it under bottom tube to the right of the frame and then back into lever. Manitou forks make the best hose routing possible, again IMHO.

    Tweaking my 08 Komodo out a bit, converted to single speed. Just bought a RaceFace Atlas Stealth bar, jagwire brake cable, Avid speed dial, dmr thret wheel, KMC gold half-link, and odi-bar ends with specialized lock-on grips. Originally used a DMR STS to set tension but with the half-link it sits right in the drop outs with perfect tension. I also want to swap out the fork soon. It's an RST launch and surprisingly it hasn't failed yet, and I'm a heavier guy (230lbs).

    Well I still have the STS, once the chain is stretched I'll start using it again.
