Not really an official name. The are urban mountain bikes I guess. Some basic frames to help you figure out which geometries fit the bill

specialized p2
243 racing
transition ToP
Evil imperial
Kona Stuff / roast / cowan
Ironhorse Porter
Canondale Chase
norco supercross
Snipes cycles
Soul Titan
Endless Lifetime
Draco something or other
Balfa Minuteman
24 pornking
Cove Stiffee

The bike tend to follow the same type of builds. I guess for a general term they are mostly calling dirt jumping frames.

Yelling? Is that the best you've got?
Show some respect to others and watch your language, especially when talking to moderators.

Everyone chill. I took it as a joke/sarc. I definately didn't take the remark seriously.

Raiyn, chill some can be tolerated, some can't. He obviously didn't mean it. Just say it once and don't say it twice in this case. Mael's a real cool guy, he won't be pissed at a joke of that class.

So chill I'm frozen.
I know this. I'm not a big fan of people busting out the insults when a request for more information is made. <shrug> What can you do?

Yeah, I get what you feel like. (Thoughts: You're asking us for info in/and
1) a language we can barely understand or it's annoying (aol'ese)
2) insulting us)

Why should we provide info if you don't respect us.

Some people will change, some won't. Warn em once, they don't care? Leave it to the mods. Complain to the mods if you must. That's what I did to xtreme biker for his ignorant posts. Look where he's now. Banned. (But he was an "xtreme case")

I've gotta go with Raiyn.. Of course, if you ask me, the dude just sounds about 14. *shrugs* Not really looking like he meant it as insulting.

1st off

I have nothing but respect for this board and the moderators who keep it safe. Maelstrom has given me quite a bit of info. So why would I be a dyk to him. It's dam hard to sense sarcasm on a message board. You should learn to be a little more open minded. I may type like a 14 ur old. But I certainlly don't act like one. However I can stoop to that level if need be.

Thanks again Maelstrom for the info, it helped alot.
