Timeline and why its nice to have insurance

8/30/2011 6:51 AM

So I recently moved up to Syracuse NY for my job, met the local dudes on bikes and all has been sweet. Except there are scummy black people who love stealing shit. So i was out riding and i had my bookbag sitting on a ledge, i set my bike down maybe 30 ft away to grab my bag and i hear my hub spinning as some black dude hops on my bike and takes off. That was the last of my bike i saw. Luckily i have homeowners insurance and the bike was covered by my insurance so thanks to the scum bag for getting me a new bike!

I think ive had enough bikes to make a timeline. Missing some pictures of what my bikes looked like but this should do, Enjoy!


This was my first serious bmx bike, I bought it used off ebay for like $300

8/30/2011 9:50 AM

Thanks guys and I agree with you whip. I loved that frame, I was was the most mad about not being able to get the frame because i got it on final clearance.

Ive been told people have seen the kid on my bike once or twice and he hasnt painted it or anything. Just a matter or time before some dudes find him and shits gonna go down hahah

8/30/2011 3:11 PM

You current bike is legit. Lovin the strip bars too


It's an Eastern, and it's fucking awesome.

8/30/2011 3:40 PM

Shitty situation dude. At least you're not in Rochester, people steal bikes up there like crazy. It's so sketchy to even go riding.

8/30/2011 7:38 PM

sick new setup, except i hate the federal tire, i had to buy one on a week long roadtrip cuase i ripped my tires and it was the only decent one at a shop where we were

its haevy and washed out

I bet that feels dialed, but I'm not a fan of the colour scheme; too much going on.

Trick is if u stay around the hood. Don't make your bike to colorfull. Cause us minority

Insurance gave me $1150. I had receipts for $1650. Minus the $500 deductible. Although i didnt pay anywhere near that. I just know all the guys i got parts from and they made me receipts for retail value haha.

Im also learning to not go out and ride all by myself. All this could have avoided if i had waited for my friends

9/1/2011 6:53 AM

i like this thread.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

9/6/2011 5:46 AM

Im finding more and more riders up here. Im assuming youve ridden with or seen davey at The skatepark in liverpool?

9/6/2011 5:49 AM

of course davey is a monster.two weeks ago he like punctured his spleen and like one of his kidneys riding trails

9/6/2011 10:30 AM

everyone on here that rides is everywhere but near me lmao sucks so bad! but love all the bikes and your newest is dialed except im not sure about those tires...
