    That gold paintjob looks hella sweet (in my best Eric Cartman voice.) How and what did you use to make the paint come out that nice?

    Why not? It's their bike, they can set it up however they want. Some people run brakeless. Same in BMX, some people run front and rear, some people only run a rear, some run brakeless.

    Was that to me?

    Well, they make the bike stop. The have nice lever feel. They're fairly easy to set up. They're durable. I like them a lot. I just wish I'd gotten 8" rotors, at least up front.

    I have two brakes on mine because it isn't strictly an urban bike. It sees trail use too.

    The only thing changed from that pic is I added a 12-27 cassette out back because the 11-32 was too funky of a spread for anything dirt related on a hardtail.

    Here's a quick build spec

    2005 Long P1 frame
    2004 Minute 1:00 fork
    FSA Pig DH headset/FSA BB/FSA V-drive xtreme cranks/FSA seatpost
    Sic LL stem and Protaper bars
    Shimano 105 12-27 cassette/Shimano 105 short cage rear derailuer/XT shifter
    XT disc hubs laced to Singletrack rims
    Atom labs trailking pedals
    E.13 SRS guide with a 38t (or 40t) bashguard with a 36T guidering
    Hayes MAG brakes front & rear 6" rotors

    It's really light. Really snappy. I was very happy with the way the build came together. I had gotten a killer deal on the frame brand new (sub $170). I had the frame prepped correctly and went ahead and put everything together. So far so good!

    If I decide to pull the tigger on the namesis I will keep you in mind. I had a peg on the back for a little while but never tapped one into the front.

    Hey bidwell, how do you like those Crank Bros 50/50 pedals? I was thinking of buying a pair to swap on my bike for when I want to play around on it off of the trail.

    Normally I run clipless since I'm mainly an all-mountain kinda guy, but I figure I can swap them out since it doesn't take more than a minute to get the pedals off and put new ones on. My roommate mentioned that swapping pedals like this is bad for the threads and can wear em out, does anyone know if theres any truth in this?

    Thanks for the help!

    I have the 5050xx's on my DH bike. They are super smooth, the pins are so-so, and the feel is excellent for my feet. Crank Bro's now offers allen head pins (like normal pedals have) so that should help a bit. I use regular skate shoes but people with the 5050's and 5.10 shoes report they grip very well. I'd get the sealed bearing ones, not the regular ones. It's just worth it to have something super solid.

    If you use a pedal wrench and tighten things down correctly (not over torquing the pedals AND putting some grease on the threads) you can change them all you want. Just make sure the pedal washers are there on the crank arms OR if the pedal is an insert on the crank (like alot of DH cranks now have) you're fine. The newer crank arms it's a steel insert instead of just cut into the aluminum. I've changed pedals many many times with never having an issue or problem. With the pedal wrench you can get enough leverage to tighten them fine. No need to crank way way down on them. I think I go snug and like 1/4-1/2 turn and that's it. Never had a pedal loosen either going by that standard.

My roommate mentioned that swapping pedals like this is bad for the threads and can wear em out, does anyone know if theres any truth in this?

    Thanks for the help!
    I am a clipless guy on my xc rig but these 50/50's are pretty sweet- I did not care for the shinburger-makers that came on it though the "Grind" lettering is cool.
    I have swapped pedals on different bikes it makes my head spin- Not a big deal IMO.
    My son changes his monthly it seems w/ odyssey 41 thermal cranks- no problems yet..

    Sweet rides btw
    Yeah they're adrenalines. I've used them for everything from street to trails and I have'nt had any complaints. The rear has lasted almost a year and needs to be replaced now, but other than that theyre cool. I think as far as size they're something like 26 x 2.3, I did'nt go look. They are probably a bit cheaper than a knobby maxxis aswell.

    Unless the spring was custom wound for him or something... I'm fairly certain that Ti springs for a Pike don't exist.

    yeah its long ass cable

    yeah its long as hell. havent decided whether to cut them yet.
    the cable is steel braided so im afraid ill crimp down the ends
    rather than cut them. maybe ill have a shop do it.


    Thanks man, steel is real.

    Hey I have one of those frames sitting in my garage, I use to ride it before I bought my DK Xenia. But now the DK's gone my trail bikes gone, and I'm only left with that frame. And of course my FBM Old Boy, but I perfer it any way.

    What do you think about the KHS, it Bomb proof I think, but the frames really long unless you run a 24 in the back.

    I like it OK...

    My sister just got a P2 and comparing it to that it jumps like SH!T, its not smooth at all and I blow out of the dj's all the time cuz I am so unstable in the air and land all scewed up . It is bombproof because its made of good old 4130 but I think I want to get something that jumps better and is more smooth cuz this is not the right frame.

    I like the USB Molly... and of course the Nemesis', they are a given, but out of my pocket's reach for now. I'm surprised the mob crew hasn't set in....

    current street/dj rig... smooth movin' steel....



    Pictured complete, cable guides wheeled off, some other minor mods... still want to grind the rear dropouts off some, just to lose weight, and have been debating the same about the V-brake mounts....

    I think you mean to rotate them back. Bending bars is bad. Let him do whatever he wants.

    By the way, are you on the Team Sally site?

    yeah, I like the Animal, I've got one in 28t... but I don't have the guard... might look at picking one up though. are those DHR's or normal trail pimps? I also like the Dangerboy, I have the SR71 on my Turner Rail, is that the AK47? high class build though no doubt.

    I just built this up on Saturday to replace my Streetfighter prototype that I've been riding since July
    Frame: Nemesis Project 24" Secret Agent
    Fork: Sherman Jumper lowered to about 60mm of travel
    Stem: SIC LL (thanks Marty)
    Headset: Some crappy sealed one that's already coming to bits. Soon to be a Solid
    Bars: 25.4 Raceface Diablous
    Brakes: Some ratty ass Hayes with Goodridge lines and the whole set up is falling to bits
    Seat post: Thomson
    Seat: Coalition
    Cranks: at the moment, one is a 165mm Raceface Northshore and the other is a 170mm NSB Freelight. My other Freelight is on Adam (Tiltmode)'s prophet and I need it back
    Chainring: some cheap 36t one
    Bashguard: E.13 36t
    Pedals: Atomlab Trailkings that are seriously about 5 years old
    Front wheel: Razor Rock hub, DT spokes, Arrow DHX rim, 2.1" Comp III (best tire ever made)
    Rear wheel: Woodman hub, 15t cog, DT spokes, Atomlab Trailpimp DHR rim, 1.85" Maxxis Holy Roller

    I just wanted to thank Brad for everything he's done for me. I love this bike even more than my Streetfighter, which is saying quite a lot. I was so excited that 5 minutes after I built it up, the first thing I did was a lip slide on a jersey barrier (sorry, the pic was snapped just a bit early.) What can I say excpet quick adjustment time!


    edit: a few more pics from yesterday

    wall slap:



    tire slide:



    deck nosewheelie/brakeless nose pick/rolling front wheel something



    pedal ice pick to over transfer on a spine that's considerably taller than I am (just learned these yesterday)

    That frame and build are sick! I have a couple quick questions about the frame if you don't mind...

    1. Can you run a 26 in the rear?
    2. How Long are the Chainstays?
    3. How does it handle at the Dj's?
    4. How much did the frame cost?
    5. Can you run gears?

    It is a GI Dirt front wheel. (rear is and old mavic 721 on an XT hub)

    That pic was taken last night, on the very first shakedown run with that front wheel and front brake (BB5). I received them in the mail earlier that day so I cant really give a comprehensive review yet.

    Out of the box the wheel was really nice - rim strip installed from the factory, even spoke tension and super smooth hub. On the bike its solid, laterally stiff, and the bolt on axle is tough. Atomlab puts out good product and this looks to be money well spent so far.

    Coming from an 04 DJ2, it is lighter. The adjustable rebound is nice to have, but I dont use it much. I have the fork pumped up to about 15psi in each leg, stock oil, and spring. I lowered it to 65mm, and might go lower. This fork is perfect for me right now.

    Here's mine...

    Hopefully nothing would break again for the next year or so. I've converted to SS, replaced the fork & wheelset w/in the last 2 months.

    Nice!
    What gear is that? Looks like you could take a link out of that chain....

    32/16 usually works almost perfectly on an STP, I ran mine with that gear and didnt even need the tensioner.

    Thanks, Sittingduck! I just converted to SS for this bike so I have 32/18 to be conservative for now (the legs are weak). I tried taking out a link but it was too tight - it's kind'a too odd of a chainstay length for this gearing. Although I am starting to think of going 32/16 so based on what you're saying, I guess the tensioner's gonna be in the tool box for a while. The cranks on your STP looks really nice! Pretty huge there on the second pic!

    EDIT: I installed the 16t last night & I'm loving it! Yep, the tensioner's in the tool box now & I took out a link. I'll find out how it is on the trail going to the local jumps & see if it's harder to pedal. Good call, sittingduck.

    Nice looking rig. Do you know (or can you check) if the chainstay/seatstay will clear a 203mm rotor? Thanks.

    Behold!!! My fully stock STP in XC/commute mode (high saddle)...





    Anshwa:
    What's up. I had to snatch this bike for the price, even though I do kinda wish the frame was large (for mental XC reasons), but thanks for your insight. BTW, nice rig...

    Just a Hardrock comp Disc. Stock except for Bontranger Sport cranks i got for free after i warped my truvativ cranks.
    I know it's not even a urban bike really, but it's still fun as hell acting like an arse and jumping off of random things.

    I hope you aren't riding that fork in the lowered position. You'll break the "wings." I had one, and I've reduced the travel on 6 or 7 of them. Atleast 4 of them had broken travel adjusters, resetting them didn't work, the "wings" that clip onto the spring were deformed.

    Yeah, the tire says 2.5, and so does the tube, so i think it's ok.
    Thanks.

    it depends what rim it's on.

    and the tire is only good for stairgaps (which aren't urban as far as i am concerned) anyways...

    Hookworms roll smooth and are nice for stair gaps, but they're overly heavy. You don't need a DH casing for urban.

    Hookworms only look narrow because of the round profile. DH tubes are hardly neccesary, learn to pump up your tires and you won't pinch flat. I ditched my DH tubes for the cheap-o ones.

    Pinch flats happen when the tire is too small for the tube. Then the tube won't inflate completely and you get flats. When it's the other way around, you'll just make your tube explode.

    Stair Gaps

    I don't care to do stair gaps, and I ride street/urban, what else would you call a stair gap, it not XC, or AM. Would you call it freeride or DH? I wouldn't think so, if you can do it on a 20, and its on the street, then its Street/Urban

    No... A pinchflat is when the tube is pinched and punctured. Thus the name. Like when the sidewall of the tire folds over, or if the tire fully compresses. Or when you're an idiot and try to put in your own tube with a spoon, pinch it between the rim and the bead, then come to my shop and tell me the tube is defective. You CAN pinch a tube by using one that's too big. I just realized what you were trying to say. But that's not the only way you pinch a tube. Plenty of DHers run regular tubes, they stretch quite a bit.

    Hehe, i just use my fingers and some soapy water to slip it on.
    Can't the tube explode though? The tire will still feel soft because it's not being hardened by the tube, so you keep pumping, and eventually the tube explodes. Is this right? Of course, if you had an air pressure meter, that shouldn't happen, but i thought they'll explode.

    If you run high PSI, tires, you need some type of lever, I like to use 90 to 110 psi tires on my 20" you can't get an S&M mainline on with out a couple of levers.

    a tube will not explode inside the tire unless your trying to run a skinny ass tube like a road tube in something like a hookworm. THe tubes can stretch a lot. Tires only stretch a tiny bit compared to the tube, so its the tire stopping the tube from stretching and making the psi go up. take a tube by it self and try to get it to 90 psi, if it doesnt pop, youll see how big it is compared to teh tire.

    Why would you be running that high PSI while trying to get the tire and tube onto the rim? Don't you usually just deflate the whole thing first and then inflate it once everything's on?

    Spoon or butter knife is pretty funny, and pretty common around here.

    Didn't your STP have v-brakes, crappy painted white hubs, and a Marzocchi DJ3 on it like a month ago? And I thought you had a black frame?

    Finally Dedicated

    I finally set up my Transition as a dedicated urban bike. Picked up the fork for 100, and the generic red hoops with SRAM hubs for 75 on eBay... perfect for wrecking on ledges!

    That's actually really sick looking.

    Reduce that Sherman. Don't throw down on it in the lowered position, you'll break the "wings" in the travel adjuster. Wait nevermind... I forgot. You used chapstick.

    Alright, it's my turn to bite. The insurance has finally paid up and I was able to afford a new rig to replace the '05 Kona Stuff I had, here it is!

    It is stock for now, I'll replace things as they break.

    im not quite sure about the bb and seatpost but im pretty sure the bottem bracket is a raceface ISIS bb and i think its just the standard size (83mm?).

    o yeah and will i did have a go at the white hub thing but it came out like crap so i took apart my wheel, cleaned the hub and bought a mavic D321 rim because i had it apart anyways.

    I tried hopping on a 2' that I always hop on my way to my girlfriend's. I hopped the same way I would've with my other bike that had gotten stolen(that happened april 28th, so I hadn't ridden in all that time) and I litterally went flying over the ledge, overclearing it by at least a foot. So yeah, it rides great

    My stock P.2, bought new in '04. New fork coming very soon, and does anybody know if I can fit an e.13 bash guard over the Truvativ BoxGuide? I'm surprised my chainwheel is only slightly bent for how many times I've hit it.

    Repost attempt...

    Here's my first DJ/Urban/Park bike. Now I just need to learn how to ride.

    Phase 1 of my build:


    BTW I know the brake cable is too short. I only X-Up to the left, just kidding, I'm replacing it as soon as my new lever comes in. As well as adding the E 13 bash guard, some ruffian grips with red lock rings, holy rollers, zuzu pedals, and a different seat if I find the one I like.

    Cool mk3

    I like the bikes too. You should match the sherman on that P bike with some urban camo MTX rims.
