I really want to try dj/urban I ride a full susser most of the time off road but I'm thinking about hanging up my fixie and building a dj. My question is what's a good frame for a 6'2" guy with longish torso/average length legs? I'll be using it for light commute to the University, downhill there uphill back and just tooling around town. It'll be ss for sure coming off the fixie shouldn't be a problem. Suggestions?

The longest seat tube I could find was on the Atomlabe Pimp 2 at 13.7 inches. I want the same but with some pedaling capability. That is a steel bike. You can get a little longer seat tube if you go AL. Check the RMB flows on jensonusa.com.

Well I'm 6'8 so I have done a bit of research on the subject...... haha

You probably want to look into a frame with a 22.5" toptube or longer.

If you are just wanting to ride to school and around campus you might want to look into a "street/urban" frame. Like a Dobermann Pinscher (I ride a custom tt length frame myself)... It also handles DJs really well.

My recommendations:
NS - majesty/suburban
Santacruz - Jackal
Black Market - Mob/Riot
Rocky Mountain - Flow DJ
Cove - Foreplay
Transition - T.O.P./Bank
Trek - Ticket
Specialized - P. Series

Hope that helps.

Thanks for all the info. I found an azonic steelhead for pretty cheap in an xl. It's got everything I'm looking for horizontal dropouts, steel and cheap. I really like the mob and the jackal but they're out of my price range for now.

Funny thing that...

I'm 6'2" and have that same bike. I just ordered a Deity Villain 3 Handlebar with a 3' rise.
