    I agree with you on that one, but I have a feeling that when it's built up with wheels and all that it will lose it's good looking touch, being short and all...
    But its definately function over fashion
    I still respect you rick, props, and congrats on your success, you seem pretty stoked.

    beautiful frame.

    with the short stays I'll bet that rig corners like no one's business.

    seriously, if you are interested in making another, I would love to have one. Its such a unique bike and gorgeous to boot. beats buying a bike from the big S for sure.

    Unicycles have a max speed. Kris found it while straightlining a scree flield in mexico. I haven't found that on a bike yet so I'm still enthralled with those for a while.

    Wasn't me. Must have been all the good input he got in the dj/urban forum. Kind of neat to see that thing evolve from all the comments there.

    Not sure what bobalou is talkin' bout, I did say I was going to send it your way to get some feedback on how it rides. I'll p/m you when its time.
    The whole concept is a group idea from the urban/dj/park forum, very cool thing.
    Like I said before, great kids there.

    wow. thanks for the thoughts rick. i don't know if i'd be the best candidate for such a sick DJ frame tho. there's others that would utilize the unlimited potential of that bike way more than me. and like SMT said, i'll be doing a lot of XC for rehab. it'll be while before i have my DJ confidence back.

    that frame, however, just looks awesome. i've been following the other threads. your welds and workmanship are top notch! the entire concept is genious, how you used the design input of the board. great idea, great project and great execution!

    Thank you Bro,
    We'll put you on one of these then. ( see attached pic ).
    Those pic's of you hitting that 15 footer, to me, are what mountain biking is all about, and are what made me switch from making weapons, to making bikes.
    Get in touch with me 3 weeks before your doc says you can ride again, and I will hook you up. No bvllsh!t.
    Heal fast,
    Rick.

    Wow, thanks man. I'd consider it an honor.

    It's started snowing up high here so my dirtjumping season is right around the corner.

    muchos gracias!!

    How much would it be to buy the first frame? Are they rider input (can we ask to mess with the geometry a little) or mass produced?
