Finally finished my first ground up build. Really loving how this bike feels. Weight is a little over 25 pounds.

You may notice the brake cable...I was able to get the outside of a piece of paracord over it (I only covered the section that wraps around the front). Hopefully it prevents rubbing but time will tell.
Really cool idea with the paracord, how’d you do it?

The forks look pretty darn good without the decals!

I got some 1/4'' paracord and cut a piece to the length I wanted. I then stripped out the core, melted the ends with a lighter, and slid it over the cable housing. It only took a few minutes.

I agree! I slowly removed decals until I ended up with none.

Some backstory

Last summer borrowed someone's dj bike at pump track at was properly impressed, previosly rode only XC bikes. Bought dirt cheap 24 inch BMX Haro backtrail x24.

This summer, while my clavicle was regenerating, spotted this frameset for a ridiculuosly small price. Bought, swapped everything that was swappable from old BMX. Then, step by step found better parts, rebuild BMX in stock parts and sol it off

Now i use this bike to pump, learn bunnyhops and manuals. Normally i don't have time to ride during daylinght, sorry for potato photo

Uses bike with ridged forks to pump, also why Mtb with Suspension in skate park is lame, a 24" whoa lol. * EditI like the Paracord brake lining! I used Paracord as hub cleaners

Cool bike! What's the rise on that bar? Seems quite high (which is my preference too).

Hello Guys , I have a 24 dirt jumper but I’m really tall , and wanted some tall rise bars in 31.8 , I’m running 40 rise ones and I am 1m82.
What bars you guys recommend me? Thanks

If you need to go really high you'll need to be looking at chro mo bars. Maybe some thing like S&M 4or5 inch cruiser bars

I think spank have a 55mm 31.8 bar?

Deity Highside 80mm
NS Proof 70mm
Dartmoor Toxic 89mm

All have huge rise, and shims are available for stems.

Thanks , I really don’t have trust on shims, the deity are out of stock ????

I don't blame ya.

There's probably some in stock with distributors around the world for that.

Pro Taper (formerly known as Answer) has a tall wide 31.8 bar as well. No idea if it's any good but back fifteen or so years ago the Answer Pro-Taper was one of the best bars out.

99mm/4 inches. I'm 6ft/184cm tall, and it feels just right
