Dawid Godziek Dartmoor 25 Player

To some of you, David Godziek, younger brother of Szymon, maybe be a new face in the dirt jumping scene. But this is far from being the truth. In fact, the brothers were going head-to-head in their earlier days of riding dirt jumps on mountain bikes.

However, around 2010, David took a sharp turn into BMX. After achieving many goals in his BMX career, 2018 marks his come back into freestyle mountain biking. Here is a closer look at his Dartmoor 26Player bike.

 David is sponsored by Dartmoor Smile

 @dart-bikes: That is pretty unclear from his setup though Wink
  • + 2
 @Patrick9-32: Why? His frame and almost all parts are from Dartmoor - except suspension and tires which are not in Dartmoor's range of products
  • + 6
 @dart-bikes: Smile sorry, it was a sarcastic joke that I think has been lost in translation. Every part on his bike is Dartmoor so it is very obvious that he is sponsored by Dartmoor.

 @Patrick9-32: where's the sarcasm font when you need it

 That is a beautiful bike!

 That is a serious sex machine, would love to hear more specs on it. Love front hub with no disc for SS setups. Real single speed rear, bmx style. The only boring part is that couch sized seat and stem.

 Proportions look weird after all the wheel sizes you see on PB, looks like a mini xc 29er but when you realise it’s 26 you realise it’s the frame and reach that’s tiny not the wheels that are big,
Cool bike either way.

 Kenda Kick rear tire looks legit. Since Maxxiss stopped producing the tough sidewall 26x2.2 IKONs... this Kenda looks like a great replacement. Thanks Dawid!

 So is regular Ikon not tough enough now? Even when run at high pressures? I was about to order some for my DJ

 @WAKIdesigns: I can recommend the 2.4 EXO version for sure. But I can't with the 2.2, which no longer comes with a descent sidewall option. Last year I tore 4 (four) 2.2 IKONs even with EXO sidewalls. One sidewall lasted for less than 30 minutes. This is using them within their stated range of 45-60 PSI. I haven't had issues with the 2.4

 @filmdrew: I’m a noob when it comes to DJ but how does one tear a sidewall on Dirt Jumps? I could understand warping the casing but... I wondered about Crossmarks, what do you think?
  • + 2
 @WAKIdesigns: I'm running IKON 2.3 up front and DTH 2.3 rear on my Santa Cruz Jackal (if you watch slopestyle contests this is the setup of 80% of the riders.) Issues with sidewalls tearing on a DJ should be non-existent. I have had great luck with my setup thus far. I am running tubes, about 50psi front, 55psi rear.I believe the pros run narrower widths (2.1 or 2.2) for faster rolling.

 @PsychoT: I have Bontragers XR2 they are similar to Ikon, maybe they will do, what do you think? I was happy with them so far. otherwise I just may get Kenda Smallblockeight, they are cheap as fuk
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: torn sidewalls are from roasting the berms that connect the various parts of the jumps/ trail. One of the 4 torn tires was actually just from a pumptrack :/

 @filmdrew: never managed to do that Smile i think I’ll be fine with my keyboard warrior skills Wink

 Detail in this bike is insane. What a beautiful build.

 I did not realize the pike DJ has such tight tire clearance....no chubby DJ bikes...my bike is dated with the argyle on it..

 Go ahead neg rep the hell out of my comment.
26 inch wheels.
Boost? I doubt it
Most modern "improvments " to bikes is marketing crap.
DJ crowd does not fall for the marketing hype.
Most DJ frames don't use taperd head tubes .
DJ fork with a 15 mill axel won't sell.
  • + 2
 Look at bmx market it’s hardly revolutionary - apply a bit of thought behind the tech and uses of what you list and then the application.
Ride that bike down a hill faster than a v10;then come back and talk bollocks to us about marketing hype.
  • + 3
 A Santa Cruz v 10?
Put 26 inch wheels a non boost dual crown fork with a straight 1-8 steer tube.
Seven speed cassette Amd you still have a modern DH bike that will win races .@kelownakona:
  • + 1
 @Sshredder: not if everyone else in the race is on your ‘marketing crap’ Machines - reach, boost, length, 29 ... try it I’ll race ya get PB to set it up.

Seriously you must never have ridden a DJ bike either they or you’ve never ridden a DH bike!!!

 Why no gyro?
  • + 2
 Gyros are annoying to setup correctly and a lot of stopping power is lost from the cable friction. A lot of frames don't have gyro tabs anyway.
