No half measures - A proper Jump Bike

photo

No frills, high quality and yet inexpensive, these were the goals for our jump bike. A simple jump bike that meets the demands of dirt riders and pumptrack cruisers in terms of geometry, specs and handling equally.

Gyro-Mount
An integrated gyro mount on the frame makes it easy to attach a gyro to the Trickshot for infinite barspins.

Adjustable Dropouts
Adjustable dropouts provide a high degree of variability and the chain can always be tensioned optimally in any setup.

Clean Cockpit
A clean and simple cockpit was important to us with the Trickshot. So you will only find one four-piston brake, with which you are still able to throw X-Ups or Tailwhips but also have the speed fully under control.

Colors and Decals
The Trickshot is available in the frame colors Safari (matte) and Venomblack (matte). As with all our bikes, the decal colors can be selected in the configurator. There is also the choice between a red and black fork casting.

Specs

Uncomplicated, solid, high-quality. That was the main focus for the spec of the Trickshot. So you only will find parts in the configurator, which are well steeled for any tough session through it's stability and durability.

At the front, the Marzocchi Bomber DJ 100 mm is used. The Trickshot roles on Schwalbe Billy Bonkers and on 26" NEWMEN Performance wheels, particularly light and specially made for the Trickshot. The cockpit and the saddle come from Sixpack Racing as usual. The rear wheel is decelerated with a SRAM Guide T 160 mm.

 So many pics of the bike, but none of the accessories… Let’s be honest, Propain is useless without propain accessories.

 Good price? Seriously?

 @Primoz: You either don't like Propain, don't understand DJ bikes, or are just ignoring everyone that has spelled it out for you.

Yes, it is a reasonable price. The frame and fork alone are approximately the value of the complete bike.

 @Primoz: A $1200 bike will have a worse fork, worse brakes and a worse crankset, and probably worse wheels. And not just kind of worse. Some of the stock stuff out there is straight up immediate replacement quality. I've built a couple of my own DJ bikes up from parts and would definitely buy and ride this bike if I needed one. Bringing a $1200 bike up from shit quality to decent quality costs way more than $300.

 That rear drop out is gorgeous... Can we get jumpers in loud colors though... I mean by nature dirt jumping is showing off

 Pro Pain, seemingly, can do no wrong lately! I'll need some of what they're taking!

 This bike may have a BMX background making it perfect for enduro mountain biking.

 I don't understand the purpose of sliding dropouts AND horizontal dropouts. Don't they accomplish the same thing?
Someone smarter than me explain this.

 The sliding dropouts are for adjusting chain tension independently of the axle bolts. This is so the rear wheel can be taken off and on without changing the chain tension setting. The dropouts hold the axle in the same place every time. Take a look at the P.3, Ticket, and Jackal. These aren't dropouts setup for chain tensioning, that's what the sliders are for.

 The part of this dropout I like the most is the integrated brake adapter. You can adjust your chain tension and remain 100% consistent with your brake rotors

 @Yerts: This design should have vertical dropouts so the the wheel and drop down along the path of the circumference (rear axle to BB being the radius). With the horizontal dropouts in this application you’ll have to re-adjust the tension each time you remove the wheel because you’ll need more slack to remove the chain. SMH

 @StriclyBiz: Nailed it. That's why I'm so confused. Maybe if you could derail the chain without de-tensioning it you could take the wheel off and not mess up your tension adjustment. Otherwise you're hosed.

 @StriclyBiz: how often does a DJ bike need the rear wheel removed ?about once every 2 years . It will take an extra minute to set up . Sliding drop outs are the shit !
These are sweet looking sliding drop outs . I like the bike because of this feature. Want to go SS .you can easily.
Many DJ bikes are single speed .
Quick release is silly imo. I prefer everything bolted down. Even if that adds a minute or two .

 @Sshredder: just ordered mine. Can you actually put a derailleur on it? I couldn't really locate the lil' thing where you could put it..maybe i'm just blind. I'm not a huge fan of singlespeed, maybe i'd put on a derailleur at some point IF possible. If not, well...it's still a pumptrack bike after all..

 @mozsombi: hmmm zommed in . Yeah I don't see a hanger on the drop out . Perhaps e mail them to see if they provide a drop out with a hanger . The adjustable drop out is a bolt on unit .

 always happy to see more DJ bikes in the world. After not having one for a while, I got one again and it's so much damn fun. Pretty decent spec for the money.

 Well you still want longer if your feet are hitting your wheel during bar spins. You also want to look at the seat angle because a steeper seat angle means more forward reach since it pushes your bottom bracket and feet towards the back.

 A seriously good DJ bike! The geo looks very nice.

 Sliding drop outs look sick. Like the Santa Cruz Chameleon. Only half the price and far more suitable for pump tracks and jibbing .
