Reply to Money issues.. 12/20/2013 10:14 AM

That is unfortunate.. I would do like Kane said and just get a job anyway. 10 - 15 hours a week isn't going to destroy your studies/school. Plus it helps make you appreciate the stuff you buy. I pieced together my setup with very little money.. its nothing ... more »

Im going to guess you're white. Hope that catches up to you one day. Never had a bike stolen.. been blamed though. It was the bike I brought from nc lol. But my stuff is locked in my house or in my grip all the time.

Buy used.

Probably not.. getting a little too old for others to pay for my hobbies.

I think he didn't learn that 'g' and 'q' are indeed different letters, lol.

Looks a lot better! What'd you use to clean up the chrome? Any plans?

Do you have a proper size frame/bars? I had the same issue with one of my wrists til I got onto a larger set up.

Thanks for the correction.. should have done a little more research, haha.

New thread Back in '95.. 11/27/2013 1:01 PM

This bike was made. Diamondback Assault, 21inch TT 4130 frame. Picked it up for $20 with no chain and a messed up rear wheel. Put the wheels on from my Schwinn, new chain and it's good to go. Dyno front load stem and I think 8.75in bars. Feels ... more »

Tried to message you.. but I can't even find the inbox. meh. But no, I haven't yet. Still trying to get a rig I'm comfortable with before I go out anywhere riding, haha. You ride down here often?

I haven't really seen or heard anything bad about them, I'll take my chances :p

Reply to BMX Christmas! 11/17/2013 8:03 PM

Looking into a new frame.. 21in Haro Zebra along with a decent headset and bottom bracket bearings.

Reply to Relationships and BMX 11/16/2013 2:39 AM

My wife pretty much lets me do/try what I want within reason. She doesn't usually want to hear about it, but as long as I'm still putting in my support for the family (money, emotionally, etc.) it's all good.

Reply to Bigger bars or bigger frame/TT? 11/14/2013 12:01 PM

Yeah, I'm hoping I can find a decent bike shop that will let me try bars, or at least similar set up to mine. I don't want to blindly buy bars.. plus when I impulse buy, it's horrible, lol. edit: For future reference.. if anyone digs this thread up, ... more »

Reply to Bigger bars or bigger frame/TT? 11/13/2013 5:43 PM

Thanks dude, I appreciate it. I'll look into those. Would 9in bars be good for say on a 21in + frame as well? Say if I were to upgrade frames in the future.

New thread Bigger bars or bigger frame/TT? 11/13/2013 5:11 PM

I got my bike for way less than anything on CL about a month ago. It was dirt cheap, literally. I'm right at 6' and the frame is 19' and the bars have about a 6 inch rise, maybe a tiny bit more. It's a nice bike for what it is, but it's been giving me ... more »

Nice vid, makes me want to get out and ride. Beautiful landscaping/architectural work there as well, good job.

Haven't really been here long enough to agree with the first parts, but the last part for sure. Unfortunately, social media sites have really been killing forums/message boards since they shot off. Same thing happened with another forum I'm on. It sucks. ... more »
