    I'd just ridden it home from the garage where I was building it. I wasn't riding it a reasonable distance standing up or with my knees up around my chin. :lol:

    Nice looking bike, i would have a suspension personally but thats my opinion. What are the octane one pedals like?

    Rigid forks are just for cheapness really, will probably upgrade in future. The pedals are great, light with a big platform, I took the pins out straight away and replaced them with DMR grub screws which give much more grip. Not bad for the cheapness.

    Nice bike, i'm not a fan of the seat (get a pivotal!) or wingbars (never have liked them) but other than that, very nice :)

    I have fundamental rigids on mine too, initally bought them for a cheap upgrade over my marzocchi dirt jam pros but i really like them! I use mine for street/park though rather than dirt, so i don't need suspension.

    Unbelievably light, and almost perfectly balanced. I originally had all the parts on an old cro-mo frame but it was too short and I felt like I was going to go over the handlebars all the time. The jawbone is very rear biased, balance wise, so it's amazingly easy to get the front wheel up in the air, and the weight makes it simple to get the back wheel up too.

    I keep having thoughts of swapping out my STP frame for one of these, just that the STP is such a good allrounder I'd hate to loose it versatility.

    Took this for it's first proper DJ'ing session today. Only got a few bruises and scratches to show for it! Liked it though, easy to flow through the air and nicely balanced.
