    I have been riding a DMR Sidekick for about 3 years now and have put it through the beats and it is still working from me.

    I am about 210lbs and 6ft tall and consider my self an intermediate djer (which means I still case the odd jump and have a couple of rough landings).

    Other recommendations:
    -Cove stiffie - north shore ridden
    -Norco's
    -Kona's both ht and ds (good budget prices).

    Do you want a hard tail or suspension? Both have advantages and disadvantages.

    Good Luck

    4) I sometimes trial ride
    5) I don't want ot buy another frame for like five years (long lasting)
    6) I like it very responsive to my moves (good geomitry)
    7) last but not least I want it to look good (looks)

    Check this out, you say you have about a grand to spend on your rig. I know for certain this whole drive of yours is just to look a bit cooler on a new dope bike. Really that just makes you look that much more stupid to your fellow riders wherever you ride at.

    What you should do is call your lbs and ask em to dismantle your bike. Take it home and strip the paint, find a cool color you like from a quality rattle can co. Paint it up a few times over, order yourself a new NemPro fork. Find quality wheels, new NemPro stem/bar combo and you'll have a damn good looking functional bike. That could be had under a grand and you'll be happy. Lost but happy.

    Oh and have your dad or mom paint your bike.

    I would agree to a point, I was just detailing what I'd do I guess. Or more of an after thought on the point that he just wants a new dope bike to sport. When I get bored with the look of my bike I'll just paint her up and she feel all fresh again. I remember seeing Boxxer's P bikes all painted up and they look f'n sick. With that grand he could get pretty damn close to looking like them. He'll have to have his dad paint it but he could bribe dad by mowing the lawn.

    yea, since your frame is pretty good allready, just paint over it and dump that grand into better parts....no need to have a super good frame and stock parts from a p1 or what ever you have........better idea to go with better parts and re-paint your frame, it will still look very sexy if you get the right parts

    Well eventualy i want to sell one, but it won't be easy selling one part at a time so if I just buy a frame, see which bike I like more, and sell the other I will be all set.

    If you have unlimited money I would have a custom built frame made. Then you have your own specs put in, and metals, with even your own colors.

    wow, i needed to smoke something before i read all this nonsense.....bleh.

    bmx is the originator, go with it. just buy any damm cromo frame with under 16in stays and you wont go wrong, no frame is perfect, so quit trying to get a lvl 97 uber godslaying frame with infinite durability and negative weight, it just doesnt exist.

    Serve Em has some great advice here. I doubt that the p2 is holding you back anyway. Maybe only in weight but you can lighten it up pretty easily with a new fork and other parts (bars, stems, cranks, singlespeed, pretty much everything Serve Em said). That's another suggestion is if your bike is not singlespeed yet then go ahead and give singlespeed a try. This will definetly lighten up your bike.

    I know that it is very tempting to go out and buy some super sweet frame. But I think you might want to stick with your current frame for now. This is just my personal opinion so you can take it or leave it. Happy Trails

    wow, thanks for the advice, I was beginning to think everyone here was a jerk. And yes I am trying to lighten up my P2, but as of know it hasn't been that big of a problem. I can get it back today from the shop. I was considering running single speed, taking of the front brake, and getting a new fork, but in the near future... my set up now is just fine.

    THe only reasen I have wanted a new frame was becuse i have an uber amount of bike parts just sitting around. SO If I got a good frame, hooked it up with parts and sold it for double the price I could make some money.

    That would be a good idea except a custom bike usually won't go for as much as it cost to build. You might be better off selling the bike parts alone then as a complete bike if all you want is to earn some money. There are many great frames out there all waiting to be bought and the best frame is one that you find yourself. Some relatively inexpensive frames with less than 16in chainstays would the Evil DOC, Transition ToP, BlckMrkt mob/riot, dobermann pinchser, and lots of others. I hope this helps. Happy Trails.

    you stated in an earlier post, taht a HT makes you a better rider. 1st off thats not exactly true. some ppl are just plain sh!ty riders, no mater what bike they are on. however, an HT is very helpfull when learning basic moves. however an ever better bike would be to get a 20''.


    oh and for all of you taht think Will is skinny as fvck in that pic, oh god, you should see him in real life. he looks like he just came out of a concentration camp.

    My daily caloric intake is as much as some body builders. 4% body fat. At 5'8" I'm 135 pounds of muscle. Haha. Why does it matter if I'm skinny? I can ride a bike. And I can sure as hell hold my own ground in a fight too. Size is not everything.

    Pat, I'm sorry that I can't be huge like Zach. I know you like big boys. Heheh.

    Got to love a good crash and a face full of dirt. Dirt has lots of calories and protein, right?


    I think this is a pretty picture.


    I know I've got some pictures of clicked x-ups and okay tables and whipssomewhere...

    You just never know when I'll pop in, do you Pat?

    Consider it by luck that you moved to Kansas. So have the locals called you a poser yet since you were building that 20" to huck t3h gn@r?

    check out addct cycles i have one switche all my parts from my old cannondale chase. the rear bracket is sick you can adjust the wheel foward or back to set chain tension. i had so much trouble with my chain comming off on my chase chain only came off once because i didnt have it adjusted right. the geometry sucks for anything except jumping and park. www.addictcycles.com oh yah the addict was built only because there were no good bikes for dj or park give it a shot

    Check the website... it's clearly listed...

    And no, it was not built because there are no other good bikes. There are plenty of other good bikes. And the geometry is versatile enough to ride street, northshore, and race on too. Hell, I raced DH with mine. I'm not bashing the frame. I've had one for over a year now.

    Anyways, for my fanboyism to come out.

    The frame has to be chromoly. Aluminum is too harsh and non forgiving for me.

    Going from a Redline Proline to a Standard 100R, with minimal geo differences, made the biggest difference in the world. Now I can only suggest Standard to those building 20" bikes.

    Your PHD is aluminum...

    I don't see any resemblance to a p.bike... Perhaps color, they're both aluminum, and they are bikes. P.bike uses tubing that has a completely different profile to it. P.bike does not have integrated tensioners, nor CNC machined chainstay and seatstay yokes and headtube. Specialized can only dream of making a bike of this quality. And as for parts? I didn't hold back when I built my Addict. Can hardly say the same for Specialized.

    personal taste, i never liked the tapered look of the down and top tubes on that rig.

    but: for build quality and cool features, that thing does well, those dropouts and that chainstay bridge are sweet. and your build is sick. cept put the saints back on! or at least get those xt's powedercoated. maybe replace them with hones?

    too bad it has canti boses though, that would piss me off. make we want to get out the grinder.

    some of the p.bikes i dig, but i would never buy another one. forget supporting the corporate machine. they could make the hands down best of everything and i still wouldn't buy it.

    It's functional, kinda like the Easton Rad tubing or the Kona Clump tubing. Adds rigidity and exposes more area for welding.

    As for the XTs... lost like 10 ounces over the Saints and I already had them sitting around. I might hit up the auto shop and powdercoat the cranks when I come back around x-mas.

    I have thought about grinding the bosses off. But... if I lace up new wheels, I might just go with a rear that has a rim brake surface. Plus the frame's anodized and I haven't found a clean way to get at them.

    I'm not saying the p.bikes are bad. I'm just saying that it's a bad comparison. I know what you're saying. I think that some of the Big S bikes are pretty cool. But they're recent trend of using proprietary components (different hub standard, and possibly a different headtube standard in upcoming years) is pretty whack. I also believe that their business ethics are shady as hell.

    Because I would have to replace the freehub on my rear wheel and Russell's stripped the bolt in the hub to get it out. Don't feel like buying a new hub.

    I'm building my Mosh up, just need chain and brakes/cable.

    Ya, I am not a big fan of P. Bikes, nor specialized for that matter but you have to admit you get alot for your money and a great bike to trash around.

    As for a new frame, I do like the addict a lot but I still have a ton of research to do.

    Sweet DJ frame if you ask me:

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...+Frame+07.aspx

    And by the sounds of it, you're probably a small guy who deosn't have much money to spend. Free Easton bar ain't bad.

    Good luck supergrom.
