    I've started Dj'ing and riding Urban a lot since moving to LA. I think I'm ready to spring for a new urban/ DJ bike and was looking at this.



    What do you think about this for $850? Any other recommendations?

    The 2006 Chase III beats the pants off Specialized for about the same price.

    If you're looking to pick-up a complete bike, at a reasonable price, I would go with either the P2 or even the P3...

    I would reccomend a P. bike, I like my P1 a lot. I hear the Chase is good too.

    The last MBA I think (or the one before) had a DJ bike shootout. The P3 from specalized won it's pick. $1600 ain't bad, XT drivetrain, Blackspire chainguide, Hydro Brakes, and a Manitou Sherman Jumper fork. Was a pretty good deal with the parts makeup + their warrenty is top notch incase something breaks or busts.

    Chase, P. series, or the Kona DJ lines are all excellent bikes for that stuff and reasonably priced as well. You're going to want the guts to be solid. Good wheels, cranks, and fork.

    I almost got a Cowan as they aren't too much (frame only), but there's chase's and P series floating around. I see them in the for sale sections all the time.

    You may want to check out the DK Xenia, it's a single speed, chromoly frame with a mix of bmx components that can take a beating. For the three weeks I had mine I was in love with it, the fork isn't great, but it's burly.
