You don't.

That would be so insanely useless, it would be incredible.

Frame needs a mount, and the p-series bikes are useless.

P2's suck for mostly everything, every P-Series bike does.

They feel like ass in the trail, handle like ass while trying to do techy stuff and don't belong in a skatepark.

Stop being a little girl and get a BMX bike if you want a gyro.

MTB's are for like dh racing and and cross country crap. Not riding doubles and skateparks.

Let's not everyone judge Mtb's by some stupid offerings from Specialized, or Crackandfail.

Check out Eastern26, Norco, and atomlab. Thank you.

How the hell are they the same? Nothing about them is the same except sometimes the frame material.

I want to see you back up that claim, but I have a feeling you're going to ***** out and just not reply.

Everyone around here has P1's. Some have P2's and one has a P3. Allllllll awful bikes to ride. I'd have one to get to work though.

What I am getting at is that a lot of urban mtb'ers and ultimately bike are designed with the same spirit as a bmx, as in they are designed with short wheelbases, tough frames, or what have you. If you look at a rider like guy marsh or anson wellington, they are for the most part bmx riders, they just ride different bikes, I honestly don't understand what you see as so fundamentally different when it comes to bmx and a mtb designed for urban use. I ride an eastern nighttrain26, it has a bmx casette hub, it has a 20mm thru axle, it has holes for gyro tabs, and it has disc tabs, it shares a lot between BMX and mtb's, it feels as much like a bmx to ride as most anything could with out being a bmx bike, which personally I haven't really ever found my self that comfortable on.

Well how can it feel like a bmx if you don't like the feel of a bmx but you do the urban mtb. I have nothing against urban mtber's, you guys can do what you want. It just seems pointless to me to sacrifice tricks, style and feeling for a bigger bike

I mean that I like the way the front end and such on a MTB feel longer, but it feels similar in terms of CS length. And, i totally understand what you are saying about saraficing somethings for the bigger bike, but honestly, I really love the feel of an MTB on some singletrack or doing skills park type of stuff which I can't get on a bmx.

Cant be the guy who uses suspension, big wheels and disc brakes to ride a skate park.
