this is the image from above

I actually did something like this with my old Intense Uzzi because the seat mast was just too high for jumping. You could unbolt the the whole seat mast from the frame so I did that and zip tied the hell out of a seat straight on to the top tube. It worked perfectly. The only thing about this one is the angle just looks too sloped back, would hate to end up on the v-brake.

What's the thing under the brake lever?

i don't know if it's just me, but I see a cassette on that weird one, it is set with no derailleur, but I'm 90% sure I see a cassette. I see open teeth at the top of it, way higher than the chain

Yep, it also looks like vertical dropouts with no chain tensioner.

Hate to post kind of off topic, but I didn't feel like this warranted its own thread. I just ordered a Dartmoor Two6Player frame to build up a bike for my local skatepark (pics will come once complete). I've been researching and specing out parts for a while, but I'm still struggling to find a wheelset in my preferred quality/price bracket, but I was looking at TartyBikes (UK trials bike site) today, as I remembered them from when I had a street trials bike, and found these:

https://www.tartybikes.co.uk/26_inch_wheels/inspired_hex_pro_26_inch_wheelset/c87p13783.html?pos=1095&search_params=YTo3OntzOjEyOiJjYXRlZ29yeV9pZHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MjoiODciO31zOjE2OiJjYXRlZ29yeV9yZWN1cnNlIjtiOjE7czo4OiJrZXl3b3JkcyI7czowOiIiO3M6OToiYnJhbmRfaWRzIjtOO3M6NDoibW9kZSI7czozOiJhbGwiO3M6NDoic29ydCI7czo5OiJwcmljZV9hc2MiO3M6MTA6ImNvdW50cnlfaWQiO3M6MzoiMjMxIjt9

What's to stop me using them on my build? Correct hub spacing, sealed bearings, tires and tubes included, even! And I can't imagine a trials wheelset is gonna be any less strong than a good DJ one.

nothing is stopping you... yolo it if you want too

what I meant by that, is that they seem that they would do fine, possibly even better. if they fit everything, give it a shot, maybe trials wheels are the new holy grail for dj's
