    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.

    It kinda looks like the 04 P2's... But very nice! I saw on the web page the guy had pegs. Does this frame com addaptable with pegs?

    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.

    like I said before, I can make another bike with some spare parts, just need a frame. And that frame isn't really my style. I think I am going to get the jackle...

    Pretty much everything you can do on a hard tail, dirt jump, street, park, trial. I think I am best at street, but I like dirt jumping a lot.
