    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'm not sure which I envy more, the frame or the weather you're having. )

    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.

    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.
