Jump bike
#1
I'm looking for a 2nd hard jump bike that I can convert to single speed, but cant find any decent forums where people sell bikes. Do any of your guys know where to try?

I wouldnt bother as a singlespeed, to much strain on the knees but you should build it up again, its great having a hardtail to just hack around on, leave the flat pedals on it etc. I was getting a bit wound up with it but thats because it was my main bike for a couple of months and it was slow, heavy and painful as no rear suspension but now I like it again. Had a good street ride with friends last night pratting around on it, jumped off some walls and even managed to get up on a bench at one point

just a few off the top of my head that would be good looking at :

giant STP's had for mere pennies brand new - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cyclestore.co.uk/productDetails.asp?productID=18715&categoryID=11">http://www.cyclestore.co.uk/productDeta ... egoryID=11</a><!-- m -->

at £300 that is a great buy ! ive heard of them being used for everything up to freeride ! and even the odd occasion of the person saying they shoved the seat right up and XC'ed on it  Undecided

i assume you know the rules about having tensioners? if not, if you have vertical dropouts on the bike, then you will either have to run a half link chain or a chain tensioner, its much easier to go with the tensioner though for the fact that with a half link chain you will have to find that "magic ratio" and even then you will be constantly mucking around with it as the chain stretches out.
