First bike I ever owned, aged 12 ( the bike pictured is not the actual bike tho




Thank fuck.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

The dyno was shite, at the end of its life the forks were horizontal from learning how to 3 a fly out dirt jump, did really love it at the time tho.

Here is the old bike from back in the day:



Here is the new one:



I miss that old Schwinn. It was a full CrMo frame and all hand welded. That bike was the shit for its time.

Lol...
Hit the nail on the proverbial head.
We were tougher and stronger back then, and thigh gashes with whips were part of the game. So were 50-60 lb bikes, thank god they got lighter...

If you are looking at Soulrebelrastaman's bike those are 20" Animal MTT tires. If you are looking at my bike, they are 24" Odyssey Path P-Lytes.

You just want to make sure you maintain a gear ratio that works for you. The 10/28 drive train that is on my bike is a nice compromise between ease of pedaling and top speed. If you have say a 16 tooth driver with that 44 tooth sprocket, it will have a similar feel to what I'm riding.

I guess the main advantage to a smaller sprocket is a marginal weight savings and possibly aesthetics.

yeah i was talking about the OP post, maybe its a bigger width, i noticed alot of tires are starting to say 20x2.3, maybe theyre running beefier than i remember.

With the gearing i understand the rations are both about 2.7:1 or vice versa 1:2.7? but yeah i understand the math, i totally forgot the math on that, i think i was running a 16:44 but i have to double check, i like the idea of having a smaller sprocket, both aesthetically as well as logistically, just today i was moving my bike in the garage before i left to work and had a sprocket shaped grease mark on my pants, a smaller sprocket would probably help that.

Well the reason is so when you drop in you don't whack you sprocket on the coping and smash it and the chain to pieces. but does look better
