Planet X

Planet X is an English company, and they seem to get name-checked a lot when it comes to a "what DS frame should I buy?" question. I don't really know much about them, but they look very capable. [edit] what is 'ds' ? i'm not sure what i meant back then, but the dirt jumper/urban/park bike realm is so specialized and split into little factions that i don't really know what these bikes are called anymore. i don't spend a lot of time worrying about it though.

Jack Flash - It's kinda cool how mountain bikes have gotten so specialized. This Planet X is obviously not going to get you up many hills. Notice the beefy dropouts, big gusset on the headtube, the huge Risse DH fork, and the lack of front brakes...

Dactari - I had to laugh at the goofy paint on this Planet X dirt jumping/DS bike. Then I found out they're an English company and it all made sense. I don't know what you do with a bike like this - but it looks pretty serious.
