    That gold paintjob looks hella sweet (in my best Eric Cartman voice.) How and what did you use to make the paint come out that nice?

    Question...
    why do some of you have a back and front hydraulic brake on a dj/urban hardtail...?
    wouldnt a single back one be just fine...?

    Why not? It's their bike, they can set it up however they want. Some people run brakeless. Same in BMX, some people run front and rear, some people only run a rear, some run brakeless.

    Was that to me?

    Well, they make the bike stop. The have nice lever feel. They're fairly easy to set up. They're durable. I like them a lot. I just wish I'd gotten 8" rotors, at least up front.

    I have two brakes on mine because it isn't strictly an urban bike. It sees trail use too.

    The only thing changed from that pic is I added a 12-27 cassette out back because the 11-32 was too funky of a spread for anything dirt related on a hardtail.

    Here's a quick build spec

    2005 Long P1 frame
    2004 Minute 1:00 fork
    FSA Pig DH headset/FSA BB/FSA V-drive xtreme cranks/FSA seatpost
    Sic LL stem and Protaper bars
    Shimano 105 12-27 cassette/Shimano 105 short cage rear derailuer/XT shifter
    XT disc hubs laced to Singletrack rims
    Atom labs trailking pedals
    E.13 SRS guide with a 38t (or 40t) bashguard with a 36T guidering
    Hayes MAG brakes front & rear 6" rotors

    It's really light. Really snappy. I was very happy with the way the build came together. I had gotten a killer deal on the frame brand new (sub $170). I had the frame prepped correctly and went ahead and put everything together. So far so good!

    If I decide to pull the tigger on the namesis I will keep you in mind. I had a peg on the back for a little while but never tapped one into the front.

    Hey bidwell, how do you like those Crank Bros 50/50 pedals? I was thinking of buying a pair to swap on my bike for when I want to play around on it off of the trail.

    Normally I run clipless since I'm mainly an all-mountain kinda guy, but I figure I can swap them out since it doesn't take more than a minute to get the pedals off and put new ones on. My roommate mentioned that swapping pedals like this is bad for the threads and can wear em out, does anyone know if theres any truth in this?

    Thanks for the help!

    I have the 5050xx's on my DH bike. They are super smooth, the pins are so-so, and the feel is excellent for my feet. Crank Bro's now offers allen head pins (like normal pedals have) so that should help a bit. I use regular skate shoes but people with the 5050's and 5.10 shoes report they grip very well. I'd get the sealed bearing ones, not the regular ones. It's just worth it to have something super solid.

    If you use a pedal wrench and tighten things down correctly (not over torquing the pedals AND putting some grease on the threads) you can change them all you want. Just make sure the pedal washers are there on the crank arms OR if the pedal is an insert on the crank (like alot of DH cranks now have) you're fine. The newer crank arms it's a steel insert instead of just cut into the aluminum. I've changed pedals many many times with never having an issue or problem. With the pedal wrench you can get enough leverage to tighten them fine. No need to crank way way down on them. I think I go snug and like 1/4-1/2 turn and that's it. Never had a pedal loosen either going by that standard.

    Heres mine. I'm not sure how much longer i'll have it. also the stance's steerer tube is bending out really fast. I do love it though :P not the most glamour of bikes, but ohh well.
