Just need a bit of advice.

Is anyone running a Hope pro 4 Single Speed hub on their DJ?

If so, what single speed cog kit are you using?

Thanks, Johnny

Me, I am using the CyclingDeal Conversion Kit.
Bought it from Amazon.

Very good money for value. Running it for 2 years now without issues. Also it's cheaper than the reverse components (all their products are overpriced).

Thanks! I'll probably splurge and grab the V12's then.

I got the Reverse components kit because the purple matched Hope purple pretty well and the SS cog it came with had a nice wide interface with thew freehub.

whatever spacer kit you get, make sure you get a cog with a wide base such as the halo fat-foot or the one in the reverse kit.

Thanks!!

Definitely get a wider cog,

Depends what his sprocket upfront is.

I am running 28t-12t.
Which gives me a ratio of 2.33.

not sure on other brands but, Gusset an Halo cogs with the wider fittment have 12-18th so that should cover most sizes for both BMX or MTB chain.

So as I wanted to go and get new chain so I could position my back wheel better in dropouts, while commuting to work today, my Saint cranks decided to somehow brake like this. Probably nothing I can do here as the spider I think is not changeable. What do you recommend for new cranks as I don't understand new standarts like DUB, boost, Eagle etc.
Broken Saint crank

Does anyone have a firm opinion on the best way to make a DJer feel/ride like a larger DJer (besides increasing frame size)?

Increasing handlebar width?

Increasing handlebar rise?

Increasing stem length?

Something else?

Some combination of several/all above?

edit: Recently repurposed a 2005 Size Small Devinci Kicker into a pumptrack bike and I'm 5"9

The handlebar I'm using is probably 750mm wide, almost completely flat, and little sweep. Stem is probably 35mm long.

Slamming the stem will give more actual reach. An then yeah, all of the above.
lowering the front end eg: shorter travel fork will have the same effect.
I recently dropped my stem on the DH bike for more reach. a 15mm drop gave me 6mm more reach but that's with a DH 64' head angle a DJ will be stepper an have slightly less effect

They went to TW, which was the sensible choice.

Can anyone give me some real-world information on the Airdrop Fade frame.

At one size and a 430mm reach, I'm concerned that it will feel too big for me at 168cm tall.

I'd love to ride a British brand (just support the lads from where I live in South Yorkshire) and I love the Raw frame - but just can't get over the reach factor.

Does it really fell long?

Thanks

John

I'm 177cm and I've just bought a Fade. I'm running a 30mm Stem. The fit for me is perfect...just! (coming from BMX first then MTB) I ride skate park mostly so find the Fade only just short enough while for dirt is, for me, the perfect length.

For comparison, I've gone from a Dartmoor Two6 Player (long) which is a tiny bit but longer than the Airdrop and there's not much in it, but I definitely struggled to do rotational tricks and manuals on the Dartmoor compared to the Airdrop. At your height, I would defo try one first as £350 is a lot to drop on something that might be too big for you.

Thanks for that - Appreciate it. I think it's too long to be honest - I've seen your Dartmoor looks great. On that point where do you ride in Sheffield? My lads are loving their Alcatraz's and I'd like to take them some more places - I've been down to Charnock, they loved that - So, did I!!

Charnocks just round the corner from me, I'm shit on dirt but still learning lol.

I ride Devonshire Green the most (City center) and Cooksons (when I feel like a change) outdoor concrete.
