    Yeah that thing is pretty wild...I guess someone might find the usage for it, im essentially building a slopestyle bike...

    Our riding around here just calls for that type of thing...

    For me it's either street/DJs or full on trails. No slopestyle/freeride persay, hence the street bike and the big bikes.

    Yeah, in that case a fun geared hardtail would rock. Here it does not.

    I'd love a short travel fully for jumping and "slopestyle," but are you really gonna be doing 180s out in the woods?

    its a ht slalom frame (horiz dropouts) that i use for park, street, and jumping. definitely NOT a bmx cruiser. i switched it to SS because i got tired of smashing deraillers on ledges, walls, etc. plus with that part of the drivetrain gone, the bike is easier to whip around.

    The argument has gone around and around...I prefer to have my bike in mtb form...No gear or front brake = BMX Cruiser, it's pretty cut and dry.

    Just ride it who cares.

    Well, if you read the ABA rules. Any bike with wheels 24" or larger is a cruiser.:nopity:

    What it comes down to is you have to have a certain number (I dunno how many) of the unique features that make an mtb an mtb to have it be an mtb.:clue:

    But I've put a suspension fork on my cruiser and ridden it in a 10 mile XC poker run.:hot: So did that make it a mountainbike? Probably not because I think I left my peg on the back...

    It's gay to "classify" a bike. I understand manhattanprjkt is saying he want more of a traditional mountain bike but we don't have to get into a fight of cuiser vs. mountain bikes.
