Shcwinn Pro Stock 3 se frankenbuild.

feel free to force your viewpoint on me.


I had some spare junk parts sitting around but they are trashed borderline walmart and need to go.
Someone stole my Steel Haro Group 1ci, a lightweight dirt that was tough to beat so I bought the aluminum frame (which may be heavier than the Haro) because I wanted a lightweight bike that would bunny hop easily over curbs and a few small dirt jumps too.
I also saw that people are making these into borderline roadbikes, I wouldn't mind some of those characteristics as long as they don't hinder its minor stunt prowess.
So basically I want a lightweight build that can be ridden to the bank, liquor store, bike shop, beach etc and jump over obstacles on the way there.

What are some lightweight parts?
Can I get an entire build kit?
What wheels do you recommend?
What can I do to frankenstien this and maintain jumpability?
