I'm planning on building a DJ bike that is SS with 24" wheels so it needs to be fairly light but also stong. I quite like the look of the yeti DJ 2009 or the DMR transition purple has anyone had any experiences with either of these frames? Also i would like to have some Halo SAS wheels and i like the look of the rock shox pikes but am having trouble finding other parts. I would like to have a pair of big handlebars. My budget is aroung £1100 but i'm willing to go a little higher if necessary
Any help is appreciated
Cheers:)

24" wheels on a 26" specific frame pretty much sucks. Your BB will drop pretty low, and the chainstays will be pretty long.
Try to find a 24" specific frame, like a Superco, an NS Suburban 24, Tonic Fab Fall Guy, USB Molly, etc.
I ended up getting a frame custom made, since I wanted BMX BB, headtube, and specific geometry, but kept the MTB hub spacing, disc brakes, and fork.
You need to figure out what you want a little more specifically before getting good advice....
