    STP 0 deal

    Hi all,
    Have decided the most versatile bike for me is going to be a DJ rig. I wanna ride to work (not far) on weekdays, and take it on trails on the weekend, and have the bike strong enough to take a drop of 4-5 foot, this rig should handle it. Only question is the Pike 409, will it handle 4-5 foot drops? I assume it can take decent hits, its what they have on it stock.
    I have lined up a near new STP 0. Dude has had it for a few months, rode it for about 2 hours in total, and has put the following extras on it-
    Azonic outlaw wheel set $650
    Holzfeller bar and nickalplated stem $300
    Maxxis bling bling tyers $80 each
    Odyssey pedals seacond hand $60
    Lizard skin grips $30

    All these extras plus the bike's value is around $3100 AUD, i can get it for half that price. Seem like a good deal?
    Let me know what we all think
    Also, its a large or 14.5 ince frame, thats going to suit me, being 6 foot tall. Rode a small on the weekend, and it seemed cramped.

    The STP is a very, very nice frame. Go for it.
    The pike should be ok, if you are not too heavy.

    Yeah i only weigh about 70-75 kgs.
    I see the crankset is only a 36T. Can you fit a better 24/36T crankset later on and a derailluer or not?

    Go for it, and as far as you crankset question, the answer is: of course.

    Are those prices in pesos or something?

    Three bills for stem / bars?

    FYI, Jenson is selling Lopes Bling Bling tires for $17usd each.

    Edit: Just looked up... 1 USD = 1.30792 AUD. Are bikes really expensive over there? Still puts stem / bars at $230 usd which is insane IMO.

    That's a great price in American dollars (1185) for everything. I'm not sure what your prices are like over there though. Those new parts are definitely nice. For that much, he should give you the old stuff too. The pike is a great fork, it can definitely handle what you want. Hmm, I wish we had the pike as an OEM fork over here.

    Having the Pike's is about the only good thing we get down here :-)

    I've got a STP0 too and find it versatile enough for everything I do, which is pretty much the same as what you're looking for. For ~AU$1500 you're getting a good deal, an I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

    Hey, it will be able to take 4-5 foot drops without a problem if I can do them on my $80 BMX bike.
