Added reply in a thread 16" bmx for 9yr old 7/12/2020 1:08 AM

This book does a pretty good job on the history of bmx. Some beautiful old school rides in here too.

After 3+ weeks of constant sunshine I figured I'd put my summer tyres on. After that I watched it absolutely piss down outside for the rest of the day.

Added reply in a thread How far do you regularly ride your 20? 1/25/2020 9:56 AM

I ride about 5 miles to work and back up to 5 days a week (except when it rains) and do about 4 miles around the city on my lunch break looking for new shit to do. Running 25/9. Seat stays low, never use it. Can be hard on my knees sometimes.

I got a Tall Order Pocket Socket and will be rinsing a gift card from the mother-in-law on some fresh Vans on Monday.

I sub to Scotty Cranmer, Spencer Foresman, Billy Perry and Douglas Thompsons's channels. Only watch Anthony Panza if he's on his own.

Put on a pair of Maxxis Holy Rollers and broke my generic chain tool trying to install a Shadow Interlock v2 (and immediately ordered the (recommended) Shadow tool from Amazon)

This time of year I ride Primo V-monsters for a bit of grip, wear a set of overalls and just avoid puddles wherever possible. Still get a damp ass but the extra layer makes it slightly less shit.

I rode tentatively to work on a cheap chain I installed last night. A boring 10 mile round trip just hopping shit in the rain letting it bed in.

When I was 6 my mum bought me a Raleigh Mini Burner for Christmas (1983). I LOVED that bike! It had a coaster brake and I went through tyres like they were going out of fashion. My step dad got sick of forking out for replacements and had it deactivated ... more »

I replace consumables as and when they die and have a wishlist as long as my arm full of things I plan to buy when I have some spare cash (I'm still waiting...)

Snapped another chain. In the pissing rain. (Knee meets stem. So much pain)
