I’m so out of touch with what’s good and what isn’t, but I believe Stolen has a decent name in the game, and that color is where it’s at. Nice choice in my opinion.

I like the simplicity of the look, and that weight... hard to argue with that. Looks like a sweet bike to me.

I don’t know what number you are calling to give you the impression that their call center is closed. I just placed a call to their customer service number about 5 minutes ago, and was only holding for about 20 seconds before my call was answered by ... more »

About a month ago, I was searching for my first bike in 25 years, and decided that I wanted the Haro DMC Legend 24”. DansComp has the bike in stock while everywhere else showed it as “coming soon”, and they had it priced at $599.00 with free shipping ... more »

Wise words. Lol. I’d slap a guy if he came in and said he took some dudes bike apart to find their stash.

Reply to Frame Bag 10/15/2020 1:11 PM

Lol. True.

I get that, and respect it. I will however say in my own defense, that I was never a fan of “the war on drugs” so much as I was a fan of the war on poverty. I was a high school dropout, with no real skills/ability to earn a living, and a childhood that ... more »

It’s things like this that take away any doubt about why a lot of kids grow up unwilling to accept responsibility for their own actions. I recently told my 20 year old that there are those whose parents get mad at a school when their kid gets in trouble, ... more »

Definitely shows the skills of a rider to be doing all of that on the bike he is using.

Reply to Frame Bag 10/15/2020 10:40 AM

This explains quite a bit and offers a different perspective. I could see having tools necessary for working on your bike, and such if you are riding distance, or out on trails. For me, a long ride still keeps me within a couple miles from home, so I ... more »

Reply to The "I went riding today" -thread 10/15/2020 10:24 AM

I completely agree. The sad thing is that everything was neutered back in the day because of “emissions”. Meanwhile, big business was poisoning the world with all manner of pollution and running through reams of paper as fast as my fat self eats French ... more »

That was awesome! What is he riding? It just doesn’t look like the kind of bike that you’d expect to see doing the things that he does with it. Very cool stuff man!

Reply to bike weight 10/15/2020 9:46 AM

For as much as I don’t remember anyone ever talking much about the weight of their bikes back in the day, I also can say in total honesty that aside from flatland... dudes are riding waaay harder now than they ever were. We used to ditch our chain guards, ... more »

One cool thing about those old wagons is that aside from the years when it was all about cutting down the emissions, it seems they always put the bigger motors/better transmissions in the wagons.

Reply to Frame Bag 10/15/2020 9:23 AM

Any reason not to? I mean, the guy asked. And, as I said before... I live in the community where I worked so it’s not as if I’m in witness protection or something. Even when I was doing the job, unless someone was running carloads of dope, I wasn’t likely ... more »

I have done the searches as part of my 19 years as a cop. As for the pistol, I carry one everywhere. I spent a handful of years on a drug task force that covered several counties and a big part of my job was befriending dopers and buying dope to help ... more »

Reply to Frame Bag 10/15/2020 7:55 AM

Over the years, because of my occupation, I have had the pleasure (if you can call it that) of searching the backpacks of many folks commonly known as “tweakers”. Aside from the obvious teener, 8 ball, or zip, I’ve found that most of their packs are ... more »

The folks on this forum are exceptionally helpful. From what I’ve seen, you won’t get a lot of “ignore the noob” treatment here. People seem to actually enjoy encouraging one another. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone local to you doesn’t offer to walk ... more »
