Might as well post my dream bike here lol

The best build I could possible think of tup Except maybe D30s instead of Sunline bars there was just no good pictures of Deity bars.

I personally would have gone:
+ carbon handlebar (Enve)
+ carbon crankset (SixC)
+ carbon seatpost (easton/enve)

+ King's might not be the best choice. People say there's a lot of drag, and that might kick the pedal into ghost-riding (where cranks spin when foot is taken off mid-air).

A Hadley single speed hub or Profile Elite singlespeed hub. I think those two would cover almost every single colour you could possibly want on your bike!

+ Instead of aluminium nipples, go tungsten carbide! Light and uber strong!

+ Rear rotor must be 140mm
+ Front brake with the hose routed through the headtube for those faster tracks and jumps

And heck, the bike is so light at this point, having gears would still keep it just shy of 24 pounds!

+ 6 speeds on the single speed freehub with an X0 Type2 derailleur mated with an XX pod
+ soon2bOut chain guide with dem CF backplates and updated sliders with noise/chatter suppression!

Nah, I'd definitely keep it singlespeed.
But yeah, I had made this photo before I really know much about sixc. (I would have gotten Sixc cranks/bars)

I also totally forgot about Hadley hubs.

No comment on the hubs, but the seat.... WOW an Eastern seat? Did not notice that..

I think I might sell a few parts and get myself a carbon wheelset.. I'll cry a bit, but it might be worth it.. Just the fact that you have a CF rimset on your dirt jumper...... swag

lol I only used that seat because I have it on my bike and it's fine. It's not very heavy and it's pretty comfy.
I don't barspin so I don't have to worry about it cutting up the insides of my knees Razz

why not just go for a seat/post combo?

Carbon wheels on a dj bike is where it goes too far for me imo. even on a dream dj bike i wouldn't need to have them lol.
