Hi Tim! Are you still on here? I've been reading all of your posts. 44 yo ex-bmx freestyler looking to get a 24". It looks like a lot of the ones you've posted in the past are discontinued.

I'm not a "fat tire" fan... maybe it's my roots in old-school BMX racing (BITD I ran 20x1.5"). I'm running 2.0's on my bike right now, but I'd drop down to 1.75 if I could find a really nice street/park tire in that size.

Is your sprocket a bit off so you have tight spots and loose spots?

If you want to post my bike, go for it.

It's in the Bike Check forum.

This thread is almost as worthless as my ex-wife. Yeah... at least this thread made me laugh a bit.

Much better than that Mongoose.

Personally I think 22" bikes are going to start trending hardcore. Either that or fixed-gear 20" BMX bikes... screw the freecoasters. I'm just kidding about that last part. :D

...really?

Added reply in a thread An old guy's ride! 5/20/2013 5:09 PM

Yeah, as my skills started coming back I was getting frustrated with how... cumbersome the 24" was.

Added reply in a thread decent bike? 5/20/2013 12:15 PM

Yeah, definitely a risk... if for no other reason than the warranty. I'd look into that first.

I'm 6'3, so I dig it. I'll like it more when I get rid of that chunky Premium railed seat and replace it with a lower-profile pivotal.

I dunno... the only bikes that DansComp has for $200 are a couple of Fictions and a Black Eye. If the frame/fork/bars/cranks on that Mongoose are actually cromo, are the DansComp bikes going to be significantly better?

Added reply in a thread Anyone know where I can get a bike like this? 5/20/2013 11:54 AM

I would say... Performance Bikes? Just like in the URL?

I'm 44 years old; I was a racer in the 80s and got back into BMX about a year-and-a-half ago. I wanted to get back on the track and bought a race 24" bike, but found that my work and life schedule was not compatible with my local track times. So I sold

I will never understand why most parks do not allow bikes. All that does is force BMXers to break the rules or ride other places that other people would rather have them ride less than in the parks. Makes NO sense.

Added reply in a thread 20.8 New trend? 5/12/2013 10:45 AM

I wonder what the variance ratings on frames are, if there are variance ratings. I mean, is a 20.75 frame actually a 20.75 +/- .5 or something?

Oh, shit, no, I didn't get that implication at all. I was just trying to crack wise. :D

Added reply in a thread Riding alone 5/8/2013 7:51 PM

Right on, age is just a number. That's why I ride.

I'm certainly not a douche, I'm just not very good. Heh.

Added reply in a thread Riding alone 5/8/2013 7:43 PM

I'm 44 years old. No one my age rides and younger riders don't want to ride with an old dude. :D I don't ever ride with headphones, because 99% of the time I'm in the street and want to be aware of traffic... especially since I'm giving brakeless a try.
