    Needs an upgraded fork and crankset (square taper ), but for my lowly hops, curb jumping and leaving black rainbows on walls, it will have to do for now.

    D: How could you have NOT ridden that beast yet? I would have had it outside in the driveway as soon as I'd pumped up the tires! Very nice build.

    So much for leaving the reflectors on for safety.

    Here's my mob. I realize its pretty tall, but it feels much more comfortable on my back and knees.

    I've ridden it a bunch at the local skatepark and I love it. I can tell its capable of lots of different types of ridng. I think im gona gear it up and try it out on singletrack for grins and giggles since I have all the DT stuff to do that

    thanks! the pedals are actually my trusty old speedplay derilliums. they were black, theyve just been worn down over the years as they served duty on my big bike

    has anyone here ran their DJ on some trails? I wonder what the longest seatpost I could reasonably get on there is?? I know it would look stupid but the mob rides so nice and fun I think it would be worth trying...would make for some fun horsing around on the trail

    Used to run this thing DJ & singletrack- was hard to find a good middleground. Here's a few pics:

    DJ mode-
    BEN proto
    and singletrack mode-
    rigid 26" SS

    2-3 years ago I passed that one on and built this instead:
    new DJ/street 26" pic24
    it'll do some local singletrack- but you sure ain't sitting down for it!

    I ran a raise black mamba on a dj bike, had 9" of travel and just fit slightly above slammed for dj. It was pretty sweet for single track. I cracked that frame though and my new one curves at the seatpost (killswitch). I bring it to mess around on single track every so often but not if I plan on doing more than 20 or so miles. Just ride standing the whole time, then you can do bunny manuals and stuff whenever you want without the seat getting in the way.

    Urban front suspension?

    I see a lot of people running suspension forks what are you setting your preload at? I have a spring fork on my trek 4300 disc with a lock out and i'm not sure what to set the preload at low or high? I know it isn't a dedicated urban bike but i also ride technical trails so this was a happy medium until my wallet size increases. As of now I have added a chainstay/ tensioner, odi rogue lockon grips, and had the seat post cut down to sit flat on the tubing. Any other ideas would be appreciated.
    Carpe Diem because you would be cooler if you did.

    is the preload not externally adjustable? the happy medium would be medium. high preload makes it stiffer for urban, low makes it plusher for trail.
