    actually is just a Rock Shox J4 set at 85mm

    nothing too special, but i'm not bombing off crazy cliffs/ 10+ footers (...yet?).

    Trying to get into trials (poploc helps), yet its enough to have fun around town.

    Fork would definately be on my XMAS list. otherwise until this one fails (strapped for cash)

    cranks were priority

    i am looking into an anglegrinder to set a nice light grind on the rear rim. Have some Heatsink v-pads ready to go in. for 1 finger rear lockup.

    however i just had the rear wheel built, and supports disk. If i can land a cheapo disk, it would be easy to swap lines and bolt on for a rear disk around town. then pop the cable out of the lever (one large housing) and replace with vbrake cable/housing..... i know, sounds ghetto; i just wouldnt trust my disc tabs for trialsing (if i ever get that good)

    cool, how does it feel ? does it have any annoying topout or anything ? I've been thinking of getting a J4 with every feature possible, even the 80-125 adjustable travel or whatever.

    in any case:

    you don't get any hopping chains with the open front like that??! I would put some sort of retention on there.
    also, looks like you have the mount on that to put on the lower bash/balance plate, what happened to it? might be nice.

    the J4 has been great to me so far, i havent bottomed it or anything. However at anything taller than 85mm it just feelsa bit too soft for me (for what i'm doing). i'm arond 200 lbs. The j4 is top o'the line for the J series. Really good budget fork, but i dunno how it'll do DJing.

    J4 is standard with poploc ('lockout') by remote, and adjustable travel using the uturn feature (just rotate the dial and watch the fork get shorter and taller)



    while the fork is "locked out" it has a blowby feature where if you happen to take a hit, it will allow for the fork to compress, but then stiffen up/lock under light loads again. just so it wont frag itself.

    actually, to get rid of my chain hopping issue, i took many links out of the chain.

    notice its position in the picture you quoted, thats on the smallest cog, so that is the lowest it will ever get.

    in granny, its stretched much more never bouncing.

    however i AM still looking into a chain guide or retention system should i experience any freak chain hop.

    either the truvativ or the bling e13. but we will see....

    i may pick up new tires, for some reason i'm not taking a liking to these hookworms. maybe the holy rollers and a light xc front. These hook's are heavy as balls

    nice build, somewhat reminds me of my eastern, but my fork/grips/pedals are brown and the rest is grey.

    potvin, I have to ask, do you have any idea what you are talking about? trials?

    nice build, somewhat reminds me of my eastern, but my fork/grips/pedals are brown and the rest is grey.
    The geometry is 71 degree head and seat angles, TT is 540mm (centre to centre), bb height 315 (with the 65mm Nemesis fork) and I'm running the chain stays at 374 (14.7") although they can go slightly shorter. Rear hub spacing is 110 x 14mm. The bike pictured weighs 12.8kg (28.1 pounds).

    The Hamilton pedals are great, although I didn't get the sealed ones as my pedals seem to get smashed up pretty quick. I built this bike for DJ/street/park... I don't reckon it would be much good for trials.

    wow, nice numbers, I like the chainstays and steep ha... but D@MN! that is one TALL bb height, especially when considering it's with a super short a2c 65mm fork!!! It's almost like 2.4cm or so taller than mine...
    I like it though, but did you consider the chromo smith? 12.8kg is superlight though, so alu has its benefits. It's not too often a bike on these forums stirs me up, but I dig this one. I'm assuming you are from somewhere in Europe, just from the moto lever. nice.

    The bb height is a little high I suppose, although my favourite 24" specific frames are around the 310mm range (USB & Tonic). I'm not that fussy though, and all the other numbers looked good so I went with this frame. Also, the axel to crown height on the fork is a little over 460mm, so not really super short compared to 80mm Gold Label at 455mm. I would have prefered something cromo and I really wanted a Molly or Fall Guy but the price and availability in Australia made that difficult. I'm pretty light on my bikes so hopefully the aluminium lasts for a while. It's no coincidence that all the parts are a straight swap onto one of the afore mentioned cromo frames.

    Awesome, it's got a few battle scars now but still going strong. I've had a few "oh $h!t.. this is going to hurt" moments but it's great at soaking up the really big hits that usually have me eating concrete. Cheap insurance for sure.

    That bike is fun as is. It doesn't really ride like a BMX bike--I have the BMX bike for that. In looking at this forum, I see a lot of people that want their bikes to be nice and nimble. Why not buy the right bike for the job, a BMX bike?

    My Molly, still going strong!

    Actually I'm proud to say that this is the first Molly to be ridden taht didn't belong to the company owners. Lee and I put her together the day after they picked up the frames from the first run and I have honestly loved every day on this bike. Thinking about throwing some paint on her just to change things up.

    Chase 4 SS

    Here it is...

    v-chase.JPG

    I've put a BB7 in front, Fox Vanilla 100mm fork.
    Love the finish, the grinded gussets are top notch. The bike is a hoot to ride, will take it to the DJ park as soon as I feel more confident.

    Future upgrades -
    Rims (The black eyes won't last that long)
    If the breaks won't be strong enough after break in, maybe replace the brakes to hydros.

    Cool bike...
    That's pretty pimp for a pump track...
    Wouldn't you like a lighter bike for it? (Like no gears/ fr breaks etc.)

    I'll definitely keep the gears because I do use it for some occasional trail use. I might ditch the front brake at some point. The bike is a little heavy, but its not too bad.

    Jack Flash slow build

    Here is my urban play bike. Started with components off an old raleigh, and have been slowly replacing things to get closer to what I want.

    Here it is before I lowered the front end:


    And after lowering:


    10/21 ride in Providence RI (if any of you are from here, send me a message! I just started riding urban a year ago and am 24 years old. I moved here for grad school, and havent seen too many urban bikes around. I'm not the best rider, but would really like to find some people to ride with.)


    Build is:
    Jack Flash
    Old old Z1 lowered to about 65mm
    Race Face evolve cranks (1x8 setup)
    Rhino-Lite XLs on xt hubs
    Deore hydraulic brakes
    and the rest is still a mess of various cheap-ish parts to try and pull it all together.

    built it over the past 6 weeks or so... total cost of just over $600. most all the parts were new from speedgoat, danscomp and universal cycles (lots of price-matching). the frame came from a bike shop, on clearance. the forks and cranks were the only things bought used, from eBay. a few new parts from eBay, too. tried to spec it as close to what i wanted, as possible... while keeping it cheap (i have 2 kids and a wife who's a grad student... "cheap" is important ).
    i'll see how it goes... got the frame 'cause it was so cheap... but i generally like 4130. rode a transition trail-or-park, the geometry felt nearly perfect. might have to get one, eventually.

    until about 2 months ago, i hadn't been on a bike much in a good 5 years. one day decided to fix my '92 mongoose rockadile, and promply broke it real good (snapped a crank). cracked the frame on another bike i had, the week later, going off the same 3 foot drop.
    decided i needed something that suited me better... this was the result. lost a lot of skills, but suppose it'll come back. any case, i'm having fun...

    used to be really into BMX, lots of street, downhill mtb. still have an '84 Redline that i'll eventually get around to restoring... also have a fixed gear track bike, a '78 Fuji, that i recently built.

    I saw the pics of this under the new batch on the USB site, didn't know it was yours. Also, saw one of your ebay auctions or classified (I forgot) awhile ago, where you comment on how you are too old to keep riding these bikes so you must sell, but you just keep on building, eh? hate to sound like a stalker I guess, but when somebody continuously builds bikes with no end of budget in site, I notice, and I must say, good taste tends to catch my eye everytime.
    very nice bike my friend.

    I cannot seem to get away from these bikes. This one will be sticking around (I promise). It's dialed in pretty nicely. Just working on the fork compression and height. The bike rides really good.

    get ready for a few people here to attempt to annihalate you with ridicule...
    but I'm seriously curious, how does it ride with 24"s??? a lot of pedal scrappage? are you running 175mm cranks? I run a low bb as well with 24's, not quite as low as a mob on duecequads (a pike isn't super low, so it could be worse), but I dig it actually. very stable! I get pedal scrapage, but once you adjust, it is hardly a prob... 29.5 is nice, especially with a fat wheelset and tires you have!
    actually, what is your measurement from level ground up to the center of the bottom bracket? around 11.2-25.. ?

    The cranks are 170mm. Of course the pedals scrape but not enough to bother me. I has 26" on to begin with and I felt cramped so I swapped for 24's and have enjoyed it ever since. The arrow wheels are not the DHX, they are the FRX @ 540g per hoop. I do not know the exact bb hight, I will have to measure when I get home from work.

    I was looking at it and thinking... Huh... a pair of SOS rims to a DT rear and a Scott front... Didn't I just sell a set of those? Then I realized that it was you! Nice looking build. Go ride. It's getting cold.

    oh yes, very nicely done my friend.

    I have been looking at the SS X.9 for my FS build for some time now, but a little skeptical it can take up enough slack on an 11-34 combined with the little bit of chain-growth on my frame... probably could work it out but don't want to snap off a hanger just to see... in your pics, it's hard to tell, but does look shorter than my old XT short... that thing is a beauty though, isn't the SS cage carbon weave? was looking at a right-side-only shifter as well, nice stuff sram pumped out with this season.


    edit: oh yeah, just had to ask... don't you ever dent, or feel you are coming close to denting your rims when running the tubeless? I've never run it, but seems that since stan the man says only a max of something like 35-40psi with the solution, you wouldn't be able to get up to a high enough psi for street?? although, it's with tubes, I'm running almost double that in the rear, and a bit less in the front...

    Thanks man.

    Nope, no carbon on the x.9. It's a composite. It's Dupont something. Great stuff. Very very strong. It does get a little brittle in the cold though. I've worked with it before.

    I'm currently running it with a 11-34t cassette. I'd think that it would be okay if there isn't significant chain growth. Or maybe try an 11-32 cassette?

    I burped occasionally at first, but it seems to not do that anymore. Stans recommends 40max, but I've run them at 65 before. Never dented the rims. I would prefer to run them at higher pressures. I used to put 80 to 90 in my tubes. My only concern is messing up 180s or 360s on concrete. The bike is mostly going to be a 4x/slalom and DJ rig, but I wanted it to be able to take some urban abuse.

    Usually, i'm down around either side of the river, maybe near rodger williams park.
    Usually i ride somewhere between 5-10pm.

    I ride an orange and blue bontrager, i'm not that good but trying to get better.

    I'm a JWU'er, btw.

    mine....

    built up during the rain & snow storms w/ parts robbed from everywhere. hasn't stopped storming so she's not seen beyond my cul-de-sac. tragic.

    But the weatherman says that skinnyhippy can take his new ride out this weekend so that's very pleasing.

    Fairly unique Scratch, it was originally built up as a dedicated urban/dj ss bike and weighed 0.5 lbs. less than now (42.5). I've never really been an even okay urban guy, and I always end up hurt....but love dj & freeride so I swiped **** off my old Bullit and from some guys at the LBS and voila!...Steel freeride hardtail.

    Smile My Spooky Metalhead

    Here's mine. No cables/housing on it, as i was in the middle of putting fresh new ones on. Just built my hadley bolt on hub and mavic ex721 CD rim. I really like this thing, cheaper than king, and has the same quick engagement. Also don't need a super expensive toolset that i had to buy for my other king hubs to work on it.

    CLICK THE PICTURES, they get bigger

    Just got back from a fun herb 'n' assault ride and thought I would post a pic of my shred vehicle of choice. Also, one of my awesome dog guarding said vehicle.

    Nice ride. Bears colors! Haha, spent all day watching the Bears game at work today.

    Are those the Hamilton pedals? How do you like them? Good grip? Do they have a slight concave shape to them?

    The Hamilton pedals are the hotness. They already have a bit of concave to them, and they also come with different length pins (easily replaceable with an included allen wrench). I put the longer pins only on the ends of the pedals to give them even more of a concave feel...works perfect for my bigass size 14 sasquatch feet). The grip out of the box is good, with the shin perforator pins, it is REALLY good.

    Parts to be added soon-Shadow Penumbra Byron Anderson crow seat (i think it will look badass, my buddies are giving me sh!t) and possibly some orange Dangerboy mechanical levers/stem. I'm also fiercely (although internally) debating painting the spokes orange.

    my bike

    I'll play too, here's my Scott Voltage. I bought it with the intent of simple trail riding and judt to ride around town on but a few of my friends got me into the urban/dj style. It does alright, one day Ill upgrade but until then this is what i roll with.

    Eventually Ill add on a pike and some outlaws and it will be about set. Until then I 'll ride her until she breaks. Peace.
