    Hey guys, I just thought I'd show my Steelhead, feel free to post yours:




    Yeah...getting new bar+stem+grips soon, a bolt broke off inside the Diabolus stem and what not.
    So I'm getting a DaBomb bar+stem+grip combo.

    I've got one on the way! It will be my first singlespeed. 24s, 100mm fork, rear brake... Should be a fun screw-around bike.

    Edit: adding a front brake, new chainring, adding a bashguard, new pedals, maybe a new fork, handle bars, and stem.

    One year was significantly heavier than those preceding and following - I think it was '04, but I'm not sure.

    yeah. my DJ3 is the '04. It is too heavy for what I wanna do. It's good for dj's, hence the name... anyone wanna trade?
