Good job. Looks so much nicer single speed

Thanks! First DJ bike, and spent the afternoon at the skate park since the pump track is wet. I'm terrible, but had some fun and managed not to annoy the skaters.

My first DJ bike was a 2007 Chase. Awesome bike put it through some hard slams an it held up. Frame was super light too!

Ref. Schwalbe Billy Bonkers - what sort of rim widths are people finding best for them?

The durability was for sure part of the appeal to this noob. And lifting it is always an interesting experience. Super light until that 74 lb Marazocchi DJ3 leaves the floor. If I ever get any good it's going on the Boy's e-kickbike and being replaced with a Pike or 36.

Yeah, mine had DJ1's (alloy stanchions an steerer) with DJ3 stickers on. Read that it was an unofficial DJ2 that the bike was specced with?

Not entirely certain, but the one on the bike has zero adjustments and weighs the Earth.

Yea I really believe you're better off running a rigid fork instead, Not losing much in forgiveness, gaining stiffness and losing a bunch of weight.

Could be, but I was literally born yesterday as far as riding a DJ bike so I'll leave it alone until it's time for an upgrade, if ever. Plan is to work on my manuals, hops, & wheelies out front of the house, ride the pump track at the park up the road as often as I can, and eventually graduate to the dirt jump lines at 495 and Mt. Vernon in a year or two.

Your Cannondale used to be my dream bike when I was like 10 or 11. I wanted one so badly.

I'm at an age where I have lots of options to pick up stuff I wanted desperately back when it was new and expensive, because now it's old and cheap!

Probably the first time I’ve seen someone recommend a rigid fork on an aluminum hardtail. That used to be regarded as a big no-no. Not sure if times have changed.

Why would that be an issue? Never heard about this, please explain.

Random question. I am 5ft, what size tire and frame should I get for a DJ?
