At least change your sprocket, (saves money) chain, (saves money) cranks, (saves money), and get those wheels. The money you saved should equal the difference. The difference is what? $60?

And by change, I mean, go with mine. Or you could go with an Odyssey Utility sprocket which is cheaper than the FBM I believe.

Thats just my dream bike that I'll hopefully have someday, but right now I ride a half ass 2001 Mongoose Fuzz, Fusion 3pc cranks, Primo Mustache Bars, with Profile Blackjack w/Porkchop. I'm just slowly building up my parts on this shit box, and then I'll probably get my frame next summer, either the Omen or Killing Machine. But what I'm riding now is not bad, it's before the Wal-Mart sellout, and I used to be really rough on it and no major damage... So yeah, I'll just ride on till the day of Killing comes. :twisted:

I would not ride a dirty harry lever on the front it feels so weird....I'd get the odyssey dirt fork with 990 mounts and WTP i have never rode one but i love my eastern...... i put together custom bikes all the time (in my mind) and i'm working on a flash program were you click on the parts you want and it puts it on a bike so you can see what it looks like...that way you don't have to geuss if the part will work or look good on the bike its cool

The bike that I ride is probably worth about £1000 so would be about $1500 dollars approx I suppose.

fly estampida frame (grey)
mutiny forks (black)
FSA pig headset (blue)
primo pro stem (chrome)
kink bars (black)
snafu bar ends
primo pro brake lever (matt black)
ad990 rear brake
Black brake cable to rear (no front brake)
demolition grips
demolition seat
demolition seatpost (black)
primo double bolt seat clamp (black)
g-sport rear hub with alex supra E rim (black rim, silver hub)
Sunn big city front wheel (black rim, black hub)
primo wall rear tyre
primo pro font tyre
primo 3pc cranks (chrome)
macneil chainring with bashguard (silver)
snafu pedals (grey)
kmc industrial chain
4 home made stainless steel stunt pegs 1 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches(i'm an engineer!!)

Thats basically the spec of my bike. Not only does it look a great bike it rides very nice aswell. I mainly ride a lot of mini ramp so the short 20' top tube works a treat. The thing I am most proud of on my bike is definetly the home made pegs. They grind very nicely, havent worn down at all in a good six months of ramp and street riding, are strong as hell, don't rust, were free and were my own contribution to my bike. I used to ride with 2 snafu stainless pegs and the pair cost me £30(in english moneys!) so i decided i wasnt payin this and made sum better 1's for myself!

You should have plenty of money to get a nice setup it all really depneds on what you are looking for. Hope i may have been a help in some way

cheers, jay
