24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

I just picked up a 26" DJ and need ideas on how to customize it.  So post your big wheel DirtJumper/Urban Assault bikes in this thread.

This is my urban assault vehicle. 2006 Specialized P1. 26" front, 24" rear. I just put a new HP Intense Microknobby tire on the front. This thing flies!

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

I proudly own 2 26 DJ/Urbans I purchased in the last year. Both are 2009 Haro Steel Reserve's, one is the single speed and the other the 8 speed. I had to remove the Synchro bar and neck on both as it sat just way to low for me and didn't feel like a 26 BMX cruiser to me at all.

One the single speed I threw on a wood grain BMX neck and some no name BMX bars and it rides like a dream. Matter of fact I complain that I just don't get a work out on it anymore as it's so effortless to ride. I am contemplating removing the shocks off the front end and going rigid with this one. I'll update my ride in the Museum if I do, this is the only I have here in the Museum at the moment. This is my local ride and my skate park bomber.

On the 8 speed I purchased it used for around 400 bucks on Craigs List. I attempted to upload that one in the museum but the pictures weren't just right, need to try again this week. The gentleman I purchased this from had been running Fox Free Flows on the front end so at the transaction he put back on the Dirt Jumper 2's and they look flawless. The 8 speed is perfect to go on the long haul when the one speed just won't keep up. The previous owner put some extremely aggressive tires on er' giving her a almost Dirt Bike look. I threw on the Limited Edition Real Tree S&M gooseneck with some no name BMX bars. Had to get a little bigger bar set up to accommodate the shifter but this thing is a beast. It's a blast to ride and will roll over almost any terrain imaginable. This ride gets my blood pumping no doubt.

Bought the first one April of this year and acquired the second a few weeks after. I have rode everyday since I got these suckers. I'm utterly addicted again and haven't drove in months. Pack my lunch and ride to work now, I've dropped 20 lbs in 3 months. Leave work, change and throw some beer in the back pack and I'm on the American River till the sun drops. My wife thinks I've abandoned her and my friends think I'm nuts. Now they all went out and bought 24 inch cruisers and there hooked to. I'll post some pics in a day or two, I'm still a NEWB!

That Haro Is SICK. 

As I am 6'4" going to a 26 was naturally going to happen sometime.  I still love my 20" bikes but feel great on a bigger bike.

Why thank you sir! I'd def consider getting you some BMX bars and a neck for that old school feel. I threw some real low pro bars on the one I have here in the museum and it's a perfect fit. I'm a little guy coming at 5'7 so I went 26 for my small mans complex!lol

Really though, I'm 37 years old and the 26 Cruiser was something I always wanted. I was tired of being humped over on my 92 Cannondale Mountain bike. And when there's 3 or 4 of us rolling deep on our Cruisers I feel 16 again. This thread gots me jonesing to ride right now, my Cruiser is sitting in my office with me right now.tongue

DJ bikes are pretty awesome. if you dont agree, well.. the frist time you take one on some trails you will. i liek 20 but i wouldn't mind having a DJ bike. its kinda how cruisers were the  "old man bikes" BITD,DJ are the "old man" bikes on the trails. there was an awesome DJ video i saw the other day,. ill look for it.

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

WOW......Great video Apocalypse Dude, thanks for sharing. Yep both of my DJ's came with the same bar set up you see in the vid. I had to make some changes to both of mine to be more comfy. I still love being able to go from street to trail with a twist on the dampening knob of the shocks with out missing a beat. FUN FUN FUN:D

Re: 24" and 26" DJ/Urban bikes go here.

We have 2 in the family.  MY custom built 26" Standard is now being ridden/raced by my wife.  There are pics in MY BIKES.  I sold my Black Market Riot and now have a KILLER chrome MOB!  I also had an S&M rigid fork chromed to go with it.  I've been on it for a month or so and it is amazing.  I need pics.  I think lovers of 26" and anyone who digs chrome will really think this bike is cool.

Thanks tico frank.  It's really the dream bike I wanted to build all along.  Now I have it!

Those forks aren't available in chrome.  I went to Custom Chrome in Grafton, OH to have them do a fork that was black.

Thanks!!  Yeah, I run the SB8's as an every day type tire.  When I am feeling racey, I install my Maxxlite 310's.
