I couldn't agree more. I remember, back in the day, I knew guys that would want whatever was raved about in the magazines that month. That's how I acquired my Mongoose Decade Pro. He had a perfectly good bike to ride (he was a complete noob) but he was ... more »

People say setups don't matter and to an extent that is true because you can learn anything on anything but switching up the way your bike feels opens you up to new ways of moving and thinking with the bike that gives you a bigger and clearer picture ... more »

"At 46 I am gutted that I stopped riding for 15 years, when I started again it was like a part of me had been missing." I cannot agree with this more. It was always like that & even though I don't think we noticed it at the time, once it was gone, ... more »

That's a good question. I didn't even look at the headset. I'll have to take a look. The TT length is 20.75. Not too bad. The bars definitely update the look & makes the bike rideable (I couldn't do shit with it with the stock 7's).

Yeah... Eastern bars! I can't get away from that company! Lol. My buddy bought them & then wanted to go smaller. Anyway... Pardon the stupid seat. Still working that out at the moment.

Still have to get another gyro top cable. ... more »

These are all good suggestions above. I, too, rode back in the 80's & decided on a new bike recently as I felt my old Mongoose decade pro was not the best to be beating so I picked up the Shovelhead. &, honestly, I think it's the best deal going ... more »

Added reply in a thread Does anyone have any tips on how to barspin? 10/11/2017 3:45 PM

Work on your hops. If you aren't getting enough height, you would have to do MAD spins to get them all around

Looks like the 7's I just pulled off that other bike. With your height, get 10's. Eastern has some that are only like $30. Also, I'm sure it's just you trying to compensate for the small bike, but those bars look like they aren't doing you any favors. ... more »

So did I. Paper route. Not sure that's applicable these days. BUT, snow needs shoveling, grass needs cutting, leaves need raking, dog shit needs scooping, cars need washing.... Gotta do what you gotta do. Otherwise, it's all on you. You have to decide ... more »

Is the red/orange the Grizzly?

You know it, noob! LOL.

Great deals across the board! I want that Grizzly but I need a new bike like a hole in the head. I just sold off my Old School Mongoose Decade Pro & my RL Edge freecoaster wheelset to get rid of stuff I don't need.

Go around your neighborhood & offer to: wash/detail cars, mow lawns, pick up dog shit, anything people need but don't want to do.

Of course they are. & the making money part comes in when you get good at wheeling & dealing & getting good deals on decent stuff people want. I see crap bikes on the side of the road "4 sale" all the time. Problem is, nobody wants the,. ... more »

OK.... uh.... If you were "really good" 6-7 years ago, you should be able to pull tricks similarly than years ago, albeit on a lesser level. I didn't ride for 15 years & while slow at first, I quickly was able to get back to a reasonable basic level. ... more »

Added reply in a thread New Fit VHS $399 on Dan's 10/11/2017 4:59 AM

Yeah, saw that. That's why I said the Shovelhead was still a better deal but not a bad option if you (some noob kid) really wanted a Fit complete.

Added reply in a thread 10's vs..... 10/11/2017 4:55 AM

Yeah, I had to replace the 7's anyway & wanted to see what 10's would be like so it was an easy move. Plus, I had a friend who wanted tome 8.75's & I had some 8.85's laying around so we traded. Really a drastic change from the 7's. I think I ... more »
