I'd say it is time to go in and have a legit doctor look at it.

Added reply in a thread DON'T KNOW WHAT TYPE OF MOUNTAIN BIKE TO GET 10/2/2019 10:42 AM

I would wait until you get there, see if any shops offer a rental and try one before you dive into that world. Pretty much all brands that offer legit bikes would be have a solid fit for the trails, but local to that area shops are your best bet for ... more »

All of my bikes live in my basement. I have a "workshop" area. I need to make some hanging racks and such to make it a little neater.

Classic. Your mother was a hamster, and your father smells of elderberries!

Added reply in a thread Used bike without papers? Need advice 9/30/2019 4:59 AM

Yep. I keep a notebook with all parts that aren't stock from original purchase (for instance on my road bike) and serial numbers for all of my bikes. After friends getting theirs stolen and not having the serial number to prove ownership (also a lack ... more »

Update for me: I spent most of my summer getting ready to move to a new house, and our local park was torn down to build a Costco and eventually a new park. The new park concrete started up a week ago-it will be done when snow flies. As a result, I rode ... more »

Added reply in a thread Making ramps/jumps. How high is too high for landing to flat? 9/27/2019 4:58 AM

I should build some stuff like that so I can lay it flat(ish) for storage... But as to how high for flat ground landings, that's all on the person. At my age (33) I would say MAYBE 2 feet-but I don't do drops or land flat much anymore. Back in my heyday ... more »

It looks like an older Inman to me. But I could be wrong. Thinking like 2013ish era.

I don't of it actually done-I never saw if he actually did it, but he talked about it. The internal "clicking" mechanism in a cheaper twist/grip shifter can be easily removed, which allows it to just act like a throttle for a motorcycle. Then you just ... more »

Exactly. Kid probably already took em off. BUT learn to ride the bike with some skill before you put yourself in a spot where that lack of skill will cause you to get wrecked.

Sure thing! And I know what being the "full blown adult being there" is like-I am 33. Now I sometimes take my oldest son. If that is your concern, try going early in the morning when possible-most kids don't show up at skateparks til later in the day ... more »

I've used a dirty hand (literally, get some grease and or dirt on your hand) and wipe it down a bit, might help dull the finish. Then clean it before any clear or paint. Used that technique on black alloy parts that got scratches-I would sharpie the ... more »

Basically a not crappy coaster brake? I know Seth Peterson (rode for Sunday for a while back in the day) toyed with the idea of a grip shifter with removed indexing for a brake. Not sure what came of that, but it is an effective option against a lever. ... more »

You said it yourself, "in the hands of a skilled rider". If the OP is in fact a skilled rider, then sure, go for it. BUT I would hope that they are not considering it based on the opinion of others that brakeless is "better". BUT Moving your finger 2 ... more »

Step 1. Get a bike and helmet. Step 2. Ride your bike. Step 3. Have fun! Step 4. Progression comes with time. Just ride it and enjoy yourself. You will meet people at the skatepark who can help you learn, but this is a hobby/sport where you learn by ... more »

Just pop the brake arm off. They are easy to install/adjust.

Perfect, easy to stall etc, and easy to replace if your pegs dig into it (assuming you run pegs of course)

Probably over extended your foot, OR when you landed the muscles in your foot strained REALLY hard to keep from bending it straight up and down.

I'm 33 years old and have been riding 20 years now. I slowed down, and rather than be upset that others might be "better" than me, I tell myself they have the time, the lack of fear, and the physical ability (due to not having ridden for 20 years-it ... more »
