decided on this frame as i can use dmr wonder cups to keep my saints however with horizontal drop outs do i need to buy or can i use my power play single speed tensioner?
also can i use my hope prp 2's with qr axles or do i need to buy an adaptor?

    It has a chain tug (tensioner) with the frame, according to the listing.

    You could use a QR hub, but I'd suggest getting a conversion kit to turn the ProII into a bolt-on hub - but that's just personal preference.

    would i need 10 or 12mm (i'm useless at anything that deviates from QR lol :oops: )
    why would you prefer bolted?

    for a hardcore frame, I'd prefer the security of a bolted hub, done up nice and tight.

    erm, not sure what size to suggest really, I think 10mm is standard on MTBs, and 12 is standard on BMX? hmm, something like that anyway.

    Ask Nicklouse, he's guaranteed to know!

    well i've been looking on pinkbike and i've seen one running qr suggesting that its a mtb rear axle
    i'm sure nick will be along soon :)
    oh and another question do you think i have to use DMR's wondercups to use an external BB or will any convertor do the job?

    I'd imagine any one would do the job, although I have actually seen DMR wondercups used like that, so I know it works.

    true maybe i'm best spending the extra £10 on the proper DMR one's lol now just need to know what axle i need lol.
    what do you think to the frame choice btw?

    looks alright, it's not my area of expertise, however I have personally always wanted a DMR transition for some reason. I tried one out with a rigid fork, and loved the way it handled like a big wheeled bmx. But to be honest, I don't do enough of that kind of riding to justify it.

    jumping both dirt and off stuff have recently become a much larger part of my riding but i'm not sure how :P , my only thing is i know my crosser is not an out an out jump bike and i would rather not have it snap, also most of my build is already aimed at being rather hardcore ride

    There are 2 options in BMX, 10 and 14mm. A while ago there was much more around in the way of 14mm stuff than there is today. Nowadays 10mm pretty popular for the weight savings.
