    Cannondale Chase, Specialized P.2, Kona Cowan (supposed to be pretty nice), or just build up your favorite hardtail to DJ spec. I'm using a K2 Flyin Monkey which has nearly identical geometry as the Cowan. Cost about $500 to build up, using a fair amount of used parts.

    I'd say STp if you want a lighter, more flickable bike, with quicker geometry. If you want a more stable, relaxed, solid feeling bike, go w/ the p. or a kona jump bike

    im thinking that i have enough spare parts to have the p1 and the trailpimp and im gonna use the trailpimp for dj AND xc with a fox fork. of course i may break it but i just built a trail so i can ride from my house to my bike park instead of always driving up the hill and i need a lighter bike than my 40lb kona stab or the ss 32 lb p.1 with 32/16 gearing. i still want the dj/xc bike to be able to jump well so maybe i will get a banshee sirocco instead. i want light steel but they are rare.
    wch im also thinking about a canfield for my next big bike. i was thinking faith or scream but i likey your new bikey.

    I was lookin at the stp and the p.3 was wondering if anyone had how much they weigh in at. I can get each for very cheap so price doesn't matter. Which one then?

    I've got one of those Identiti Dr. Jekyll's for sale if anyones interested.
    I loved it...still love it...I just got a Prototype DirtJump froma from GT so I'm building it up instead.

    As for what bike to choose...not one mentioned this yet, but do you want gears or single speed???
    I really like the STP but it has verticle dropouts which make converting to single speed more involved.

    I like the Identitiy, Cowan, P1 for the fact that it's possible to adjust the wheelbase for single speed as well as run a deraileur hanger for gears.

    Think about this before choosing.

    Oh yeah...pictures of the new GT are comming soon.

    Dropouts?
    STP - vertical dropouts
    P.3 - horizontal

    mine isnt so stock anymore but it weighs in at about 36ish. atleast last time i weighed it with out the chain guide. but i doubt its any higher then 38 now. i think the stocks are probally about taht. seeing as they have that big ol dropp off comp up front but no heavy chain guide or anything.
