    Here's my new bike I've been slowly building. I've been using it as a bit of a do it all type bike, however it's more focused towards the urban/street side of things.

    Frame is an Evil Faction, Fox 831 forks, E13 LG1r cranks, Formula R1 brakes etc.
    I'd like to swap the bars to some 3" risers as the current ones are a bit low and not wide enough for my liking. Other than that I'm really enjoying riding

    Cheers
    Benno

    A promising build.. the bars don't look anywhere near low to me, but that's subjective of course.

    Have you tried single speeding it?

    I have thought about single speeding it, however will stick with the 1x10 setup for now.

    I have to compensate my lack of skills with some bling It manuals beautifully, and bunnyhops feel much less labor intensive than on the '07 Ruckus DJ it replaced. I even managed to pull off my first bunnyhop to manual while screwing around yesterday (albeit it was on a 5" curb...)

    This is my pride and joy - an old 2005 Giant STP.

    This is more of a before image, currently converting to single speed and swapping out these heavy old 2.5 High Rollers for a pair of Schwalbe Table Tops, new pedals and stem and professionally respraying the forks and frame a combination of different blacks...

    Just Bought my First DJ.

    I am new to this site and to dirt jumpers. I ride BMX, but now that i moved out to the middle of the desert i was looking for something a little better and bigger to ride.
    The one and only Bike shop here is a khs dealer and he happened to have a very slightly used, pretty much brand new 05 KHS dj100 stock. which he put new bontrager tires on.
    So i bought it for 200. figured it was a good deal. Was it?

    Few Questions tho.

    i am soon going to be switching out a few parts and upgrading it. Thinking about making it a single speed. also to lighten it. Any reasons not too?
    Need a cheep starter pair of forks that are strong. What should i buy?
    Also i was never really scared to break my bmx doing 180s and stuff, but i feel like i might break something on this one. You think it will hold up?

    Well thanks for any help.

    Twitch0601,
    welcome to the forums.

    1. I have not had experience with KHS DJ frames, but there are threads on MTBR and other places about it. From the photo, geometry on 2005 looks outdated though (modern DJ frames have less standover height, shorter chainstays and often lower BB). This frame looks more like a do-it-all.



    2. $200 sounds about the maximum amount that I'd see myself paying for that bike in new condition.

    3. It makes perfect sense to single speed a DJ bike.

    4. For the fork, take a look at Manitou Circus Comp. It's not light at 2.4 kg, but it's inexpensive, quality made, strong, works great and has adjustable shim stack damping. I ride one myself. If you want the same but lighter, go for Circus Expert.

    5. About the frame, I don't know. But you may want to build a stronger rear wheel.

    Wow! There are some very impressive bikes in this thread! Very nice.

    Once I get my post count up I will put some pictures of my recently tuned up 2001/2002 Specialized P.3

    I rode Dj and Mountain bike trails for about 7-10 years then got a license and fell into the whole car scene (Used to have an amazing 2006 Jeep SRT8) but now I live in Hoboken, NJ and while everyone walks, riding a bike is definitely faster.

    My P.3 I just got back a few days ago from Port Cyclery in Port Washington, NY (If you ever go there - definitely ask for John - great guy who knows his stuff!)

    Either way, my P.3 is pretty stock except for thicker Oil combination in the Marzocchi Fork I never took out from my tril riding days but the rebound is still adjustable so might be doing that soon. Also I had Kujo DH mud/mountain bike tires on the bike, but just switched out to Maxxis Holy rollers which I love since now 90% of my riding is on pavement - also have the seat switched out to a Titec Dh saddle (not sure on the name), THE Black Front Fender, Powergrips straps on the peddles, and recently installed a Specialized Speedzone Wireless Sport computer.

    I don't do nearly as much dirt jumping as I used to, but have always respected the sport. I will be using my bike mostly on greenbelts and path trails Either way, as always, safe riding guys and gals!

    Kenda K-Rad tires til they wear out. I throw a Nevegal up front for dirt days.

    I'm 6'9" and this bike is a blast. Frame was too small for XC/AM so I bought some high rise bars and a fork and dug around the garage for the rest of the build.

    My 2001 or 2002 (forget what year) Specialized P.3
    Pretty much stock except for a few changes
    Fork: Marzocchi Z3.5
    Seat: Titec DH Berserker Saddle with titanium rails
    Tires: IRC Kujo DH for the trails/durk and Maxxis Holy Rollers for my everyday tire (just installed so nice)
    Pedals: Stock Specialized P.3 pedals with metal pins and added on Power Grips straps
    Grips: Just ordered ODI Rogue Lcoking grips
    Computer/Cyclometer: Specialized Speedzone Sport Wireless
    Toby Hendersen Enterprises (THE) Black Front Fender
    Lizard Skins Chainstay and Headset Guard (Black)








    Bike is an absolute blast - fast, maneuverable, relatively light bike - frame is a medium size.

    The taper locks are really simple and easy to use. The frame also built up easy with no problems. It's a good frame.

    Twosixbikes... Is that your company?

    Am I correct to assume that the geometry is more oriented towards AM/DH type riding, at least on this particular prototype? (slack HA, low BB, lot of tire clearance, etc)

    Co-owner yeah

    went for a mix of street/dj/trail

    12"bb
    22.5 TT
    14" seat post
    15.25 chain stays ( this photo chain is a bit loose so tire is far back)
    69 head angle
    42" wheelbase

    also i left spacer under headset and have a decent rise so front looks a little tall. but im 6'4 so had to make it comfortable for my frame.

    Cool. Thanks for the info.

    Other than BB height, the spec actually looks pretty close to a typical DJ frame. I guess you can't judge it from photos, eh?

    Looks like a nice fun bike!

    Just 10mm bolt on hubs, then if you look inside the dropout theres a long set screw coming in at an angle from the underside of the dropout. it pushes the wheel back to tighten chain/straightenwheel/and stop wheel from coming forward in case bolt becomes loose etc.

    Nice Spesh! And the jumping spot too )


    I checked out the geometry on that Zircus and am very impressed. 385 mm Aluminum (!) tubular (!!) chainstays, 34T chainring, AND room for 2.35" tire! Custom frame makers seem to have trouble doing those numbers (even 32T ring) in steel, that is with smaller OD tubes.

    Here is my brand new 2012 trek ticket exchange. Got a really good deal since the lbs is getting ready for 2014 bikes to arrive and this is a discontinued model. Haven't seen many of these around, not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I'm sure it's not the most ideal dj/urban bike but so far I love it! I'm sure it'll be just fine for my skill level (or lack thereof). Bike is all stock. Only thing I feel like changing is the bars. Could use a little bit higher bar.

    Nice one. You could go for an even higher rise bar AND cutting down fork steerer tube to run it without stem spacers (lower stem is a good thing IMHO).

    Also, check if there's enough front brake hose length to run it under bottom tube to the right of the frame and then back into lever. Manitou forks make the best hose routing possible, again IMHO.

    Tweaking my 08 Komodo out a bit, converted to single speed. Just bought a RaceFace Atlas Stealth bar, jagwire brake cable, Avid speed dial, dmr thret wheel, KMC gold half-link, and odi-bar ends with specialized lock-on grips. Originally used a DMR STS to set tension but with the half-link it sits right in the drop outs with perfect tension. I also want to swap out the fork soon. It's an RST launch and surprisingly it hasn't failed yet, and I'm a heavier guy (230lbs).

    Nice, but that chain will elongate soon and require tensioning anyway..

    Well I still have the STS, once the chain is stretched I'll start using it again.

    Just picked it up a couple days ago on the cheap. Wanted something to play around with. Seriously considering selling it for the Framed Twenty9er though.

    My friend with a nice camera has gotten around to take pics of my Spank Spoon in its current state (going for 1.5 years mostly unaltered).








    Currently this is my only bike that's in working condition.. the concept is mostly dialed for 99% of my riding, now need to iron out the next batch of imperfections. I plan to change handlebar, stem, grips and pedals. And maybe go back to 32-16 to avoid 3/32" half-link in chain and make the drivetrain omnivorous with respect to chains.

    Straitline AMP, steel axles, Superstar aluminum pins. I'm finding their platform a bit lacking these days, and would like to try BMX full plastic pedals for bigger area and less damage to shoe soles and my legs. Thought they all have sucky grip but tried some Kore and was very surprised. So I'll try to get some color matched doubly concave plastics with plastic pins. But I've been planning this for months now, and the AMPs just keep going. )

    Changed pins to blunt aluminum ones after a rain/log jump incident where I had to scissor chunks of flesh out of my calf afterwards.

    Very nice pedals otherwise. Easy to clean/regrease and rebuild. Longer lasting bushings than I expected.

    It was Kore Rivera Thermo that I tried. Upon looking at many other plastic pedals, I have only found fully flanged axles on those Kores. All other loose ball bearing models that I checked have their axle wrench flats going all the way to the face that butts to the crank, which is WRONG. Do use those pedal washers guys.

    First post here I'm about two years into bmx, I still feel pretty new since I don't ride all too much due to work/familly/same ol' story as many here. I started with a 20" and rode the local skatepark quite a bit. Just recently sold that when I picked up a 26" DJ/Park bike on the c-list for what seemed to be a nice deal. Still learning the ins and out and always trying to keep it fun.

    The bike's a 2013 Haro Steel Reserve 1.1 (low-end version), all stock with the exception of the pedals at this point. I'm not sure exactly what direction the build will take aside from replacing much of the red bits with black for vanity's sake. I'm aiming to flow the neighborhood, occasionally the skatepark, and I'd like to learn to ride some dirt, too.



    WTB taller bars (~3" rise, steel). Black/raw/silver preferred. Email [email protected]. Please pardon or notify my if this WTB is out of line. I didn't see the info in this regard. Thanks!

    I had one of those frames for awhile. I loved it and the geo. I like the bigger/longer frames. I ended up parting out that bike because I needed the money at the time. I miss it.

    Finally finished my new ride, just in time to still catch a bit of summer weather....not overly impressed with the quality of the Dartmoor frame, and wouldn't recommend it.....at least it rides well.....

    What is so bad about the quality?
    You like the geo?
    I like the price of the frame, any other frame which is cheap and has a nice geo?

    From what I saw on some Dartmoor (aluminum) frames, welds and tube mitering left better to be desired.

    Yeah, exactly what J. Random said. The mitered joints aren't really up to spec, especially around the headset.

    The frame was delivered with a dent in the rear triangle. Obviously occurred during frame building process and then went to paint because the paint is fine. Bike shop won't take return, claim I must have done it. Contacted Dartmoor and heard absolutely nothing back. So basically zero quality control, and zero support - just lovely.

    And cosmetically, check out the frame color here: Two6Player | D A R T M O O R

    And now tell me that I have the same color. Ok, not a big thing, but still annoying.

    Geo is great though. But so was my old Jackal's geo. Sometimes dollars do make a difference. I know what my next frame will be, and it won't be a Dartmoor.

    jaykay,

    Looking at their geometry table (two6player S), I wonder how did they arrive at 1040 mm wheelbase, if reach is 385, CS length is 385, and there's a 100 mm travel fork at 69 degrees. My estimate yields WB ~= CS + reach + (fork_ATC + HT_length) * cos(HTA) + fork_offset = 385 + 385 + (478 + 115) * cos(69) + 40 ~= 1022 mm (doesn't account for BB drop and fork offset horizontal projection but that's negligible).


    What will your next frame be? A new Jackal?

    Show off Your Urban/Park/Dj Bike!-blt.jpgMy suggestion would the be the Transition BLT... best bike I've rode or owned! Feels solid, the geo is absolutely dialed! It has a bit of a BMX feel, super flickable, extremely responsive! Manuals, jumps and rides transitions like a dream!
    plus it looks killer too!

    Only stock parts are the stem, bb/crankset, and headset, all soon to be changed. Fork might look a little beefy but for the stuff I do (DJ and light freeride), it's a solid build.

    Yeah, I reckon so. I prefer aluminum rigs and the old one was a sweet ride, I guess I just wanted to try a frame a bit less expensive this time round that I wouldn't mind trashing too much.....

    *sigh* and my dream 26" DJ/street rig is still somewhere out there. I want very specific numbers and features: CS 385 mm (28-14 gearing without half link), reach 405 mm, BB drop 25 mm, HTA 69 @ fork ATC 458 mm (80 mm travel), BSA BB shell, at least 28T ring support (preferably up to 32T), 44 mm headtube, dropouts with integrated chain tensioning, conventional seatpost collar, brake caliper mount on seatstay, seatstay-to-chainstay reinforcement brace. Preferably chromoly, but beefy aluminum would be fine too. Ideally thick walled titanium of course, but making a stiff and compact BB area is very complicated with it given my specifications (at least that's what all custom frame builders tell me so far).

    I run a 25 by 12 right now and I find that great... I have not tried a larger ring to be honest with you. I shoot for the 55 gear inch ratio

    sounds like you should hit up standard.. they will take whatever specs you give them and build you a one off bike and paint it what ever color you want...

    personally I love the higher BB, it is so much better for tricks... they ride better on street, park, pump tracks and unless you are hitting huge dj's or slope courses are plenty stable... I also like the NS majesty a lot, but rode the BLT once and was hooked... that doesn't happen much for me... less than 5 mins to get use to this bike and just slay on it!

    Well, I tried BB drops from +10 to -30 mm on such rigs and liked -20 the most.. 0 and higher felt weird for me. -30 felt a bit too low.

    Tried my luck with Nemesis Project and the frame came out with errors in geometry. However should I want 0 BB drop, it must be spot on.

    Will check out Standard, thank you.

    Yeah, a lot of people get on my bike and think its a bit off... if you come from MTB it is different if you come from BMX it feels a bit more at home... I come from BMX raced most of my life.

    Unlikely, that's not a typical Nukeproof color. However the same make of pedal is sold under many other brands, such as Deity, Fyxation etc. I spy a Deity logo on a pedal, so those must be Deity Compound.

    Currently has a 26" front with a 24" rear. Most likely going to rebuild the rear wheel with a 26" sun ringle rhyno lite this next month. Opinions?

    Yes the frame supports 26" wheel so I'd run 26". While you're at upgrading it, also maybe look into e13 Turbocharger 32T-only bashring (smaller, more clearance), and a pivotal saddle/seapost.

    This book helped me a lot. Instructional videos and watching riders doing it live don't cut it for me as I don't recognize the details of movements. Having my jumps watched over by someone who does see details and recognizes my mistakes, that's the best thing, but good luck finding such an instructor nearby..

    +1 to Lee McCormack's book. BMX tracks are a good place to start if one is near by and if you can start on tables until you get your confidence up.

    Finished up a revamp of my old Mongoose. I originally built this up in '09 I think. Wow, the time.

    Just pulled it out of the garage for a thorough wipe down, some de-stickering, and a fork upgrade. It would be a little more relevant if I ditched the brakes, but I like em.

    I was gonna go with XT, but would have had to wait a couple weeks (through their EP program) so I just went with the saints instead.

    Old Fart checking in, rode a lot of BMX before I got my drivers license, always wanted a DJ but got into XC riding, I keep seeking bigger rollers and berms so I finally got back around to it.

    pretty cheap build, mostly from my parts bin but here's the build specs

    09 STP frame
    36 spoke rhyno lite wheels
    Marz DJ2 fork
    Spank tweet stem/bars
    Juicy 3 brakes
    Zee shifter/derailer
    XT cassette
    Holzfeller cranks/Renthal single chainring

    That's a versatile bike indeed. I considered building on that frame too but then decided in favor of a 2nd gen Transition Bank because it could run Hammerschmidt.

    You may need something to keep the chain on top of the front cog so it doesn't fall off to the left. And maybe a front brake for more versatility?

    both brakes will be run, neither brake is mounted in the picture

    I was pondering chain retention, the Zee derailer seems like it has a pretty good clutch, for now I'll wait and see how often I even use the climbing gears, if it becomes an issue

    I was actually planning to just run it SS but a decent tensioner costs more than what I paid for the derailer and the cassette was in the parts bin

    Lol! I'm so very used to seeing if there's a front brake and not used at all to seeing if the rear one is there. And can't stop myself from making assumptions, such as: "it's a photo of a rideable bike, there's no front brake, but the drivetrain is multispeed, so the rear brake is surely present".

    Chain tensioning for SS is going to be an issue indeed. Perhaps eventually you could use a WI ENO Eccentric hub there. Not cheap too but it excludes tensioner from the build, gets you a stronger wheel, and a much more reliable and modular rear hub/freewheel solution.

    Nice Ragley. You build it up or is it a spec bike? I've had my eye on those frames waiting for them to make a 27.5 and they did it this year. Just gotta pull the trigger...

    Thanks Zen. Me too, and I was fortunate enough to find one new for almost half price. I mainly use on pump track and chasing my son around neighborhood. I had an STP a while back, but really like steel frames. At 5'9" with 50mm stem, the cockpit is comfy enough for me. It's fast, responsive, and easy to throw around. Solid bike and not too heavy with older Saint and Float lowered to 100mm.

    My Wal-Goose with upgraded bottom bracket, spindle, brake, brake lever, and headset. I have been having lots of fun on a few pump tracks and have been trying to learn how to jump table tops. We'll see. I am old and its hard to get over the mental blocks that limit taking flight.

    It is fun! Its actually hi-ten steel, but I am not worried. The frame seems strong, however, it is heavier than chromoly for sure. I am only doing small table tops and pump tracks anyway. No urban stuff! With the upgrades, this bike cost me about 180 bucks brand new. Not a bad deal.

    I just picked up a 2011 Eastern Night Train off of Craigslist for a nice price, and it was basically new and unused. I Added a new seat on a 300mm post so my daughter could ride it as a "normal" bike when she comes to visit. I am still getting used to it, as it rides really different than my fat bike. It's fun and looks to be really well made. My daughter loves to ride it too. I am going to add a front brake thoughShow off Your Urban/Park/Dj Bike!-20170326_175508.jpg

    Hi-Ten should be plenty strong- just not light, as you have noticed. It'll bend long before it breaks.

    Thanks. Close, but better...itís actually a Stage fork thatís been custom lowered to 100mm so I get the added swag of MRPís ramp control feature.

    Ooooooh nice.
    Iíd post some cool GIF here but I canít figure out how to make it work with this VBulletin shiz. Skinwalls like mine or G-Zeroes would look so right with that seat and green.

    Thanks. I almost went steel with a chromag monk but decided I wanted to try alloy for a change from all the BMX jumpers Iíve ridden. Iím super stoked on how light it came out; 24.6 lbs and so snappy.

    Iím not really digging this flat bar setup. I feel like Iím up over the head tube too much. Maybe Iím just too used to the crazy-tall stem on my trials bike, but it feels weird. You ever feel like that on yours?
    Think Iím gonna swap in a 80mm deity highrise and see how that feels.

    I'm just used to a narrow range of reach, stack, bar width and upsweep. I try to reproduce it on my every bike by stem and bar choice. It's a bit lower and narrower than what people typically run, even though I have shorter than median hands.

    Here are some of the cockpit geometry tools that I use:
    https://bikegeo.muha.cc
    Stack and reach calculator
    Stem Comparison Tool | yojimg.net

    PS
    By "my every bike" I meant they all have a play bike feel to them. Haven't had any sit and spin ones for many years now.

    Just picked up this older Specialized p2 off of Craigslist on the cheap, put it through some paces this morning at the local bike park. Im amazed at how gassed I can be riding jumps and pump tracks.

    There, I've dialed it in completely. No updates planned until something breaks or wears out.



    New fork: Surly Instigator (447 mm ATC), custom painted. Its legs are 32 mm near the crown and taper down to 30 mm near dropouts. Brake line routing on it is easy and tidy; a nice touch.
    New front wheel: Paul Fhub Disc bolt-up (smooth axle ends), DT Aerolite, WTB Frequency i25 (alas, pre-2017 stock, no bead blasted finish).
    New stem: Azonic Barretta Evo. The unusual 15į rise allows running both +40 and +50 mm riser bars with a short stack of spacers. Properly beefy, shouldn't develop tiny annoying creaks like WW stems do.

    Bike weight: 10820 g.

    Crappy photo but at first I thought it was a good idea to use the partial natural lighting, and then mosquitoes attacked.

    My new to me P2 from 2010 I think. Replaced the cassette wheel with a single speed I had my LBS build on a surly hub I wasnít using. Next to be replaced is the crank and a fork service. At the moment is weighs in at 31 pounds even.

    Just finished this build and I figured Iíd post it. Started with a brand new specialized p1 frame that was sitting in a box. Weighs 27lbs as of now (will drop when the rear holy roller is replaced with a dth).

    This was my son's. It's a 2013 NS Metropolis 2(?) and has spent 5 years outdoors under a plastic sheet. After removing all the leaves and spiders it didn't look too bad:
    Show off Your Urban/Park/Dj Bike!-before.jpg

    A few hours fettling and it was ready to ride:
    Show off Your Urban/Park/Dj Bike!-after.jpg

    The plastic sheet was transparent and the upper surfaces have developed a fabulous patina. Note to self DO NOT swap saddle/bars/grips/stem

    Been out a couple of times over the weekend & I love it - so nimble and responsive

    Octane One Zircus, built it up using spares I had lying around. Mostly a solid build with the exception of the rubbish fork. Will upgrade that soon hopefully.

    Dont worry, I will. Unfortunatly it's just a front triangle, so I am gonna have to get the rear pieces and rocker paint matched, but it'll be a pro level build and end up weighing in around 24lbs with a set of custom wheels.

    Just got my second DJ frame. Traded the last one for an old Raleigh 3 speed.. Missed it.. not I have a new one 20 bucks found rusting on the side of a neighbors house. Tires held air!
    The seat post was AL and had welded itself to the frame.. so i had to cut it and slit it in the frame opening. A small BMX post fit perfectly inside the redline post. BMX seat clamp - done. Now it is slammed and out of the way.

    No big jumps for me - but skate park - here I come!

    New fork, fox 36 talas with a machined spacer to make it 95mm. Talas guts are removed. Also built a new front wheel, a NS fundemental with dt spokes and purple wheelsmith nipples, laced to a 20mm thru giant hub. Will have the matching rear rim coming this week.

    Built this up summer 2018, my first DJ and my first time hitting jumps in nearly 2 decades. Spent the last year working up to jumps like the one below.

    I ďneededĒ a cheaper bike I can lock up so I figured a fun-bike was a good choice.
    I bought a used NS Metropolis 2 from 2017. The pedals look out of place so I have ordered a set of ďgoldĒ pedals to match the hubs and stem. Might swap the grips to black with white accents as well but other than that Iíll try to leave it stock.
