    Smile Custom Dirtjumper

    I'm not exactly sure if this is the right sub-forum to post this in so if your an admin could you please move it. thanks.

    Now on to the content of my post.

    I'm looking to build myself and my brother up a nice dirt jumper. We're both going in on the price and since I work a LBS i get things pretty cheap. So price is not an option here.

    I need to know what my options are as far as frames go... (specialized, trek, kona etc) and why it would be good. It's gonna be a single speed set-up, hydro discs front and rear along with a manitou fork.

    Could you knoweldgeable guys give me some recommendations as to what parts and everything to use? Thanks in advance!

    STP, kona stuff I think it is called, P series are ok, but the stock wheels suck beyond beleif, if price is no object, build frame up man, go get like a Black market or a USB molly.

    If you can get a hold of a Scott Voltage YZ-0 LTD (or what ever the hell they call them..) you'd be well on your way to a sick bike.

    I would go STP, the jack is nice, but as someone who rides a P, the frame is halfway decent, but the components on the P.1 could not suck any more, my Bontrager wheels on my trek haven't given me anywhere near the trouble the specialized/alex things did. dented teh front rim first time out, and the rear hub was so nasty you literally couldn't turn the axle when it was off the bike. the front hub wouldn't stay in adjustment, I either had to tighten it down after every ride, which requires removal of the disk btw, or just let it go to hell. I ended up going with the latter as soon as a placed an order for some Bombshells.

    whatever frame you end up getting, i suggest using Deity Vendetta cranks.. I own two sets and they've been nothing short of awesome.

    trek has vertical drop outs, not ideal for SS.

    I also want this build to be semi-lightweight as I'm 165lbs and my brother is less so it doesn't have to be a tank

    The STP frame is pretty light. Nice geo on it too. The Kona is alright. It does alright on the dirtjumps, but it feels a bit too long and relaxed for street. I wasn't very fond of the Trek.

    None of the brands you chose are flashy, but I suppose it gets the job done.

    If price is no object... why settle for mainstream brands? Why not get a handmade or a boutique?

    Buy a Spank Tweet Tweet on Bti if it has to be thru your shop.

    & I just have to say this. You're going to be sharing the Bike?? Bikes are like tooth brushes you don't share!! Esp a DJ rig that will get trashed. I smell drama in your future!!

    Most boutiques are more than willing to do EPs through shops even if the shop is not set up as a dealer.

    If you want a botique brand, that your shop doesnt carry, just call them up. Every manufacturer I've called, has been more than willing
