    I contracted an STP today.

    STP1, that is.

    /lame

    Yeah, so a couple weeks back I ended up taco-ing the rear wheel on my 03 Iguana doing some urban. I had been thinking about getting a new bike for quite some time and this pretty much made me go through with it. Went to the shop, test rode a STP3, fell in love. Ordered a STP1 on the 9th and it just came in today. I absolutely love it.

    A few pics...and one riding pic for good measure.

    Awesome bike. A locally Giant sponsored Australian rider was just saying in a magazine here how he has a STP1 and absolutely loves it. He uses it for street, DJ AND Racing too! You can't go wrong with it!

    And Mael, Have you seen the Giant DH Comp or DH Team? If they dont catch your eye, i dont know what will. Very original frame design.

    It's all about where you ride.... That bike's worthless where I ride, but I suppose it's OK for "in the city"
    types....

    Maybe a new Forum category should be started that contains this type of Street Hopper bike.

    Have you even tried riding a hardtail when freeriding or when going downhill? Also those hardtails that you call street hopper bikes can take more abuse than alot of the full suspension bike can take. The bikes like the stuff, STP1, P2, Chase can handle alot more than street or dirt jumping.

    Good bike for trials type riding, not DH though.... Loses it's footing @ 50 mph downhill on singletrack.

    I told you once already to not bust on riding downhill on a hardtail before you give it a fair shot and ride a hardtail downhill. Thing is at 50mph going down single track any bike will lose it's footing even with the highest tech full suspension system. You are making broad generalizations with out backing up your statements there, the 50 mph going down singletrack and having a hardtail lose it's footing can't be backed up because full suspension bikes loose their footing at 50 as well.

    i was thinking of getting one of those for a first dirt jumping bike. but im a bit confused how much was it because being an Aussie they retail for around $1560 and the one i was looking at had Hayes hydallic disc brakes and that one looks like it has Avid mech disc? whats up with that

    Nice.. I guess Giant wants their piece of the hardtail urban pie
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    i felt the same way hooligan, but my other lbs convinced me to go towards the kona stuff...they are giving me a $100 bucks discount, so it is a good deal
