    So I built myself a new bike ...... SUFFER !

    Well it's that time of year again when all bike industry people flok to LasVegas to check out all the new goodies in the bike world .

    Since I have been riding the same bike since we left for tour in July of 2005 I thought it might be a good idea to built myself a new bike for Interbike this year .

    The StreetFighter is the frame that started it all here at Nemesis Project so I wanted to redesign the frame and improve a few things I thought could be built better than the orignal wile also saving some weight .

    As with all the bike we build here at Nemesis Project the new StreetFighter was built from 100% OX platinum tube sets from TrueTemper !!
    For this bike I designed and spec'd the butting profile of each tube .

    I also designed a new sliding dropout system that is centered around the real axle not 2 tiny 5mm allen bolt's .

    But the most work on this frame went into designing the new chainguide mounting standard for the Spanish B/B so I could use the new Nemesis Project Insurgent chain guide system !!!!

    Check out the pic's !!!

    NICE woot i want one i love the chainguide.does the lower part of the guide have a removeable plate so if you bash up the bottom of the guide you can just throw another one on. How much does it Weigh?

    Weight ... ??
    I'm not 100% sure I jsut opened the box and threw it on my bike, the main guide body is aluminum but the rest is high tech plastic so it really doesn't weight much al all !

    The design is completely modular , so the bottom grind skin is replaceable , the support behind it is designed to break before the aluminum guide body is damaged too !

    We spend some serious time on the FEA and solid modeling software designing this product .. look for pre production versions at MRP's booth in Vegas !!!

    hhmm...there needs to be more mtb frames with either spanish or mib bb's. How does the guide attach to the shell?

    It doesnt really atach to the frame so to speak , the guide and the backing bash plate sandwich the mountng tab .. it's a really stiff mounting interface , in fact I ran the guide on another bike for a few days without the mounting bolt !

    This guide is the first version of the new Nemesis Project Spanish mounting standard !

    YES the bike featured has a Spanish B/B which features our new propritary mounting standard !

    I prefer spanish B/B as they are lighter , better availibility of parts and cross compatibility IE: 19.0mm and 22.2mm spindles .

    MID really doesnt have any advantages over Spanish , it jsut has bigger bearings . MID seems to work better for BMX bikes and Spanish works out better for MTB both in DIA of shell size and width of shell .


    NOW this being said our mounting standard is cross campatible with MID , Spanish and Euro so this guide works on pretty much every bike out there ... ICSG compaitble mounting adaptors will be availible later on also .

    Hot brad, very hot. I like it. You need to tell me what those pedals are though. And that saddle too. Did you just paint the spokes or are there really red spokes out there?

    One question: If the chain slipped off the chainring, how do you get it back on? Looks like very tight clearance with the chain tensioner.

    YES what freerider said ... it doesnt come off , the tolernce is very tight so the chain has no room to move around or jump.
    The guide blocks also have a 45' angle cutinto them so when your chain goes slack from backpedeling the chain doesnt become loose on the chainring !


    Everyone thank you for your great compliments on my new bike !!

    Evil4bc, will there be different sizes available for different chainring/sprocket sizes? or only for the 27 (which seems a bit of an odd number to me actually). from the pictures it doesn't look adjustable... I'd like one for the 34t (wish it was a tree, haha) on my turner rail with a euro bb/normal iscg mounts.
    also, another question, is this product going to be marketed by, and under the MRP name? just curious... what about availability, when, what price, where? any info would be much appreciated.
    Just have to agree with everyone else, extremely nice ride!
    24" I9's with a saint axle... dayum... I think that bike would show me up even without any rider on it!

    also, swerve76, gears on a Molly or FallGuy... how? they have 110mm hub spacing and no der. hanger.

    profile 3 speed bmx hub and chain tug/hanger. There is a pic of a geared fallguy on ridemonkey in the 24 inches of love thread.

    oh yeah, very interesting. I knew of the profile 3 speed hub, and I remember vaguely about that "love... something" thread and the guy there who posted up about it, but I never checked back to see if it worked out. I didn't realize he used a chaintub/hanger combo... wasn't it custom made by tonic fab or something?
    But, for just 3 gears, all of that extra stuff... man, I don't know, not my thing, but very interesting either way.

    Brad, You have truely inspired me to go into the bike buildin industry, everything about that bike I love, I love the lines on the frame. it just looks so perfect as if like, its computer generated. If you wouldnt mind, id love to drive up to the nemisis wearhouse and meet you and check out your place. Im really curious. Do you know where I could snag some clored spokes? What do you use to build your frames, like is there a specific program that you use or sumtin like that, also how did you figure out the geometry, just fooling around with parts untill its right?

    Again that is the Sickest Bike ive ever seen in my life. No joke, its my wallpaper now

    Do you want the frame or the guide? I know for a fact that the frame ranges from $700 to $800-850 depending on options and colour. Add shipping to that of course. I'm looking forward to getting my secret agent. Brad told me he'd finish it up right after he came back from interbike.

    How is the 4X? It seems to be nothing more than a slightly longer Dirt Jumper. Is it a better fork, or is it the same? It costs about the same . . .

    WOW .... thanks everyone ! The comments about my new bikes are great totally blew me away !!

    The stock 4x uses the lighter all mountain SL crown , new stronger lower casting and standard SSV internals .
    The fork on my bike has totally one off internals that took me well over a day to machine and hand fit to the forks internals .. one leg has a re-worked Doppio air cart and the other leg has our new tuned straight air cart with rebound damping .
    Sevral people at the show couldnt believe the fork was 100% air , they swore I have a spring in one side .. nope all air and it feels like a tuned Z-1
    I'm going to make a tuned compression straight air cart for it though , I think it might has a bit too much rebound and not enough platform style compression feel which seems to be more what people want for urban riding these day's .


    There have been a few more photos of the bike posted arund the web and some on the Nemesis Project site also , the guide has also gotten a bunch of great feedback so thanks !! MRP is looking to going into production so I'll will try to keep everyone posted on the status !!

    Big thanks go out to Fred and everyone over at I9 for the wheels , Santiago Garcia at Atlantic bicycle for the Magura brakes , Lou and everyone at PricePoint.com wear price is the point ! thanks for help on the Shimano and Easton stuff !! ,Brian at Marzocchi for finding the part #'s to all my special requests to make frankin forks , Tim Fry and the crew at MRP , Al C and the colective genius at GKN Sintered Metals R&D .. you guys make dreams happen , Andy and Greg from NYC freeride , Shane at Animal bikes ... nice tattoo man when you getting a Nemesis logo ? , Snaky69 for buying me my first beer and sevral more after that at Wolfgang puck's !

    It's so light , I finf myself flipping around faster on front wheels spins .. so much so that my front tire been leaving the ground and I do a semi 120 degree spin inbetween nose pick and tail tap .. and it bunnyhops like noother bike I have had before just point and pop it's so easy

    It's a 4x body that I custom fitted with a Doppio Air cartrige in one side , and the onter I made a nemesis project straight rate air cart for ... basically totally custom one off fork .

    I can ajust the travel from 50 to 100mm also , by changing the air pressure in the doppio cart

    eh, forget my "custom frame" idea, Brad. As much as I'd like to mess around with it, I'd rather pick up a trials bike and just go with a Street Fighter in a few years. The geo is already proven, and by then I'll be all smooth and stuff and deserve a nice frame. And my bruiser will be trashed.

    I'll buy something from you eventually! Totally sweet kickass setup!

    Ok going to bike shop right now to weight the sucker .... the other day at the skatepark I was betting kids money it weighed less than their bmx bikes and only 1 kid took my doller( had a lighter bike then me ) ... that's good odds !
