    WTP Seat
    and whatever else you see that I forgot to mention.

    Now that looks NICE. My kind of setup, SS, short travel fork, steep head angle.
    how much does the frame weigh?

    Wow, thats probably the coolest single speed ive ever seen! How and where did you get a prototype GT frame? Major props dude!
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, -WOW- What a ride...!!!!

    fork ??

    Hey
    Like the fork , looks similer to the stuff I've been working on with zoke , question you said the internals are from a all mountain 90mm??

    The fork looks really similer to Paul Basagogo's fork , Aluminum streerer and stanchions
    DJ1 lowers and SSVF valveing ? Did John P build it up for you ?????


    The bike is sick and deffintly worth the wait ! Evern since you first mentioned it , I have been super eager to see the GT proto!!!

    Sick whip yo !!

    he runs it on top for Xups and stuff, it wont become near as tangled. 1 of my other friends tried it last week, worked decent. Why the carbon bars? Sounds like trouble after a few nasty crashes/cases? Throw Al. 1s on there very sweet bike

    How did you get the top cap to stay on the steerer tube without its bolt (since you ran the front brake line down through it)? I've been trying to figure out that myself. I was thinking a bit of epoxy -- anyway, so how did you do it?

    if you notice inside the hole theres a hexagon for an allen bolt. its designed for specifily what hes using it for, barspins. thats just a cleaner way of doing the same thing most BMX top caps are made. where'd you pick that bad boy up freeriderizzle? ive been trying to find out, not looking that hard. but yeah that one looks nice and clean as i mentioned before, i got mine run kinda crazy at the time.

    edit: also if your feeling extra cheap and extra ghetto. you can just put your stem and everything on and tighten you rhead set to the desired amount then tighten the hell out of the stem bolts. then you just pull off the top cap and run the cable through the starnut. ghetto as hell, but it'll work

    Exactly...big Props to Ronnie for building it. I asked for the 04 DJ2 lowers because the color matched my frame the best. I was gonna paint the GT and the fork a sick pearl white with red and blue sparkle but I didn't feel like waiting. Once I finally got off my as$ and built the wheels I just threw her together.

    It's supposed to but it's really long for Bar spins.
    Under the bar and it was hitting my knee...over the bar and it's outta the way.
    I could've shortend the line and been ok for single spins...but I figured I'd deal with it and practice double spins.

    I was being a weight [email protected] when I built the bike.
    The frame weighs in at 7.8lbs...dont ask me why but GT over built the frame.
    I went light with everything on the bike.
    Matt at FSA helped me out...the cranks are lighter than XTR and stronger...the stem is lighter than Thomson, and the bars are lighter than Easton.
    I told Matt about my riding style and weight and he swears that the carbon bars are fine.
    We'll see soon.

    The top cap s from FSA....it's a peace they invented a few years ago called Conix.
    It's the best thng ever...the part than replaces the star fangle thng actually bolts into the steer tube....the top cap is overszed and threads down into the base. There is no nut on top.
    I think you can stll fnd it mal order...I'd highly recomend it over the typical hollow types.

    That is one sick build.
    You just had to go and make us all jealous by showing off your prototype frame and your one of a kind fork... JK

    When we gonna go ride...?
    We got a sick little 'urban trail' mapped out in downtown LA.
    Me and my buds were riding there last night from 11pm to 3am. I had to call it quits because my girlfriend needed the car to go to work at 4...! I could've ridden around downtown til the sun came up. It was awesome, I was thinking, 'freeriderizzle would love this...'
    HIT ME UP..! You got a car yet..?
    i want to post more but i can't stop riding!
