    Lets me make it short.
    I wanna ride bush

    Resonable quility
    Im about 90 kilos an 6 foot.

    I would like to spend under 1000bones.

    Im 10 mins from buzz bikes in bayswater an 15 mins from pit pro outlet in furntree gully.

    Iv done a lil bit of research. dont know if dhz quility is over kill what the odd camping trip an weekend away. im not a racer or jumper. just an aussie nut wanting to get down in the bush.

    Cheers

    I would definitely recommend a midsize mate. You can always get an Atomik off eBay for a good price!

    Have a look at the Atomik Reign, Atomik Nitrous Midsize, DHZ DPRO 140 (although its 1200)

    Wow great breakdown of all the different types/brands/models & sizes & motors

    Im looking at building a bike soon, Dont want to spend the money outright so I will get the bits as I go

    I wanted to get a midsize frame setup but could not find one at the time so I picked up an Atomik (not midsize) 160 frame & swingarm & will be building it soon

    I found this bike on ebay & gumtree & im sure I found it on here somewhere but cant find it again?
    [​IMG]
    Basically it is a smaller CRF50 style frame with longer forks

    Anyone know who owns this or where the thread is with this bike, It listed the upgrades in the thread?

    As mentioned I have a smaller style frame on the way but I have a set of longer forks sitting here to go on it, How does this setup work?

    looks like maybe 50crooks old bike? to me the forks on it look to big, there not usally pushed up that high. theres not much you can do with crf 50 style bikes anyway, either 12/10" wheels or 14/12" inch wheels which it already has

    Im sure I saw this bike in a thread & it mentioned that the forks were added and other bits & pieces but cant find the thread now? I may have me wires crossed with another bike though cause I cant find the thread?

    Any way I will buy a bigger midsize (CRF70) bike later, That way I can start out with a set of 12"/14" wheels and maybe get a set of 14"/17" wheels later on for it

    Just looking to see what I can do with the Atomik Nitrous 160 smaller size bike for now, I will start my own thread & add pics when I get the frame & get some of it together

    I will have to hunt up a few bits & pieces to complete it too, Will have to keep me eye out in the classified section

    China's are fine mate just look after em, Atomik already make a bike with bigger wheels, its called an Atomik Reign Bigfoot, and will cost about the same off the Bay.
