My GT felt like a new/different bike as soon as I got a new pair of wheels (that wasn't junk) and tires. Going from 1.95" tires to 2.1 Tiogas (equivalent of 2.3) was a huge difference. GTA felt so much more stable. Because of this, my confidence rose and I was having alot more fun. Eventually, I wen...

Well, it took 4 years to get to where my bike is at. But 2 of those years I wasn't riding, so 2 total. The only parts that are still from the GT Aggressor 1.0 are the seat and seat post. Everything else has been replaced. It was a good bike to learn on, but the parts sucked so bad it's not funny. If...

Rags to Riches?! The GTA 1.0 Story continued...

Anyways, to make a long story short. P.C. beat the heck out of GTA. He had to replace her broken arms, legs, organs, and eventually her whole body until she wasn't recognizable. He had turned her into a freak. A freak that was used for his sick mind. Oh how she wished she was never born into this wo...

Rags to Riches?! The GTA 1.0 Story continued...

The Cinderella, GTA thought that she had met the man of her dreams. Then the truth finally came out. At first, P.C. was a gentle man. He was caring, understanding, considerate, and kind. But his true identity reared its ugly head. P.C. was a bike killer. Out in public, he would humiliate her. Her bo...

Re: I need a set of hubs for urban riding...

If you want a front 20mm hub for dirt cheap, try the Velocity hubs at Universalcycles.com. A shimano xt rear should do you fine, but they require constant maintenance. And if you do get a shimano, make sure you get a solid axle.

Re: Ripped disc tabs off frame

The P-X frames are good frames, except for the exception of the Bommer. Sammydude, you weren't by chance running 8" rotors, were you? Either way, that sucks, and good luck on your warranty.

Re: 24'' or 26'' Wheels

I run 26/24 right now because I"m too broke to afford a front 24" wheel, but with my current setup, it works great. There really isn't a downfall in running 24's, unless you ride in the woods. If your bb is low to begin with, it may complicate things. Also, like ppl have said, try not to run 26/24. ...

Re: Disc brakes for urban / park

Another thing worth mentioning is that you only really need 6" rotors. Anything larger, and it's just overkill. Personally, I like the 'feel' of V's better than disk, but if you have a decent frame, go for it. Who knows, you may swear by them.

I know the guy. He lives in my apartment complex, but I'm not sure if he still does, since it's been awhile since I talked to him. If you want, I can ask the manager if he still lives there.

Re: Horizontal Drop outs

Most likely the first pedalstroke or so, the wheel will get out of alignment. As for converting it into a solid axle, what hub do you have?

X-tra long Chaintugs

Anyone know where I can find a pair of chaintugs that are really long? The dropouts I have are 2+ inches long, and the only other alternative is to grind chunks of my dropouts off. With my current chaintugs, the shortest CS length possible is 16.75 inches, I would like to have somewhere in the neigh...

Re: 243 Frames

Yeah, your roomates frame is the 2k3 version that came in one size with a TT of 22" C-to-C (virtually 22.5"). So yes, it's the medium. Getting a new frame?

3" travel

I just swapped my 5" DJ2 to my broken 3" Judy TT's, and OMG, what a difference. My bike actually feels 'balanced'. Before, the bike was a loop out machine with 5", 26/26 setup. Even with a 26/24 setup, it feels sooooo much better. The DJ line has longer lowers, so in actuality, I dropped down a full...

$60 at the above link. Not sure if it's a good mailorder co. You should try out your LBS that carry Kona bikes. Have you looked at the KHS rigid-one fork? It looks almost identical to the Kona Jump Fork, and costs only $40 at Unrealcycles.
