    ... and if we just ... Got the Imperial Today

    Came in the mail today, thanks Inbred. Still can't decide what fork to go with on it though, once I figure that out I can start getting it put together.

    Sweet ride. I just ordered my headset, stem and bars for my Green Imp. You have any idea what your gonna run for wheels and cranks? I am definately going with the Profiles with E13 STS.

    imp

    Congrats, very nice!
    What kind of riding are you going for? That might help narrow down fork recommendations.
    I have a Z150 on mine and like it...
    As for tires, check out the new maxxis holy rollers. I've been on them for about a week and have nothing but good thoughts about them....they're so fast & grip pretty well.

    Sweet bike. I like that your had double bike porn in the pic with the Imp in front and K5 in the background...yum. I have no basis to recommend a fork for that frame, so I'll keep my yap shut. It might help if you tell people what kinda riding you wanna do, or if you're set on dual crown or single crown, etc. Either way, enjoy the new rig!

    Well I am going to be building up two hardtails this winter and I want one of them to be single speed, I was going to use the imperial for that but when I got the frame here I decided to make the other hardtail I am getting a single speed (probally be a 24 Le Toy, building it for urban riding only). On the imperial I am going with profile cranks (they always held up for me great when I was into bmx) and a evil chainguide. I am going with dual 24" wheels, I was going to get halo combats but I have been hearing that they are pretty soft so I might try some atomlabs. I will be doing alot of djing and some urban and some drops with it. I am going to be using sram cassette, rear derailluer and shifter and avid mechanical discs. Breakout+ was one of my first choices for forks so I might go with that, still undecided though. I am not in a real big hurry to get it built up because I broke my damn foot a week ago so I am going to be taking my time building it up and it should be done around the same time that I can ride again. Later.

    i don't know if you have profiles already, or not, but they come with 2 spacers, a gold one and a grey one. hit up a bmx shop, and ask for a silver one. you can use gold, but will also need one of the little spacers (like 2 or 3mm) between the cups.

    So nice, My DOC should be here by December hopefully, i go tmy order in the 1st batch. I am so pumped for it to come! I got a Long in Red coming. Plan on a 2004 Sherman Flick in camo with standard drop outs, and single track rims, with 6" hayes front and back. i think i may run it SS for urban. i'll also maybe get a setup to run it as a FR hardtail too, DRS and 11-32 on the back, this bike will do anything! Evils r so sweet. i got a brandnew 2003 Z.1 stanard drop outs i wanna sell, i bought a parts kit for my DOC and i want to get a flick for it, im selln the Z.1 for 360. thats a crazy deal. got an 8" rotor brand new too ill throw in

    I'm putting a Boxxer Ride on my Ridge. It's coming in a few weeks just in time for my Turkey Day weekend Grafton/Bootleg/Gooseberry ride.

    they're becoming more common 'cause people are buying them. they don't fail, so it's not like any are gonna be tossed away.
