    Pix from a sweet new line I built...

    The first ladder drop was already there so I just added more jumps after it until it became a flowy little line. Everything was built by hand by me except for the landing on the first ladder drop (finally, it was gettin' rough), and the last jump with the carpet on it. The hip is probably the best jump because I can throw a mad table-top on it. Action pix soon! Enjoy

    1- The ladder drop with a new and improved landing.
    2- The flowy hip I talked about above
    3- The beautiful take-off to the hip
    4- A little help from the bobcat man

    ARRRRGGGG MAN!! This stinks. My mom was about to take a couple of action shots of me when this happened when I hit the hip a little too fast (5:45 est) . My derailer hanger broke off and my derailer went into my spokes! Luckily I only have 1 simi-bent spoke. My chain is also bent up and screwed. Sorry guys, no action shots for at least 2 days. I will take it down to my LBS and get things fixed. Sorry for the foggy pic its really hot and humid down here in Georgia.

    aww man the Dirtbag is sweet. I haven't had any problems with it until today, which was kind of a fluke. The derailer hanger was just cheap and my chain was old. Other than that, she rides like a dream. Very smooth. The only thing I would change is new rims and new disk brakes. Most of the parts on the dirtbag are from my old bike so there on there way out.

    Does anyone know of some good rims and disk brakes for cheap? (I'm 15 and on a bit of a budget.) I just want rims that won't taco and brakes that stop better than hayes soles.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Look at your lbs to find some mavic ex325s on xt hubs. they should have em cheap. at my shop we have the whole wheelset for 229.99. or you could invest in some outlaws.

    brake wise, anything avid (juicy 3 up to code 7s will be better then hayes)

    I keep it tuned. A broken derailer hanger is almost inevitable. Perhaps the hanger was already bent and this was the last straw. Maybe I had a sticky link that got caught on the teeth and riped my derailer off, which was my fault. oh well I'll get it fixed later today. I hope to be back on the new line today.
