Go with what you like.... If not, then head on down to Home Depot and head to the glove isle. If it's warm, you can grip your bars well, and they resist moisture, run it. Fashion don't really matter unless that's your gig...........

Winter Motocross or Dual Sport gloves. Fly racing, Thor, Fox, but I heard O'Neal's are the best. I wear Thor simply because I'm an MXer, and I already have them lying around. Keep me warm on my dually at 65 on a cold day, work great on the 20 incher ... more »

Over time, the more that color is exposed to light, it loses its glow effect. Not to be all scientific, but it won't be near as bright in a year as it was new if exposed to high heat, bright sunshine day in, day out. Think pigment, UV exposure......

I've found out that the best place for me to go for all the bolts, nuts, etc on our bikes is Fastenal. Besides the obvious, any kind of bearings, zip ties, cleaners, grease, patch kits..... Their catalog is the size of an Los Angeles phonebook, literally ... more »

Everything these guys said is scripture..... Been doing this for years, X pattern with a "true to size" allen, lock-tite the bolts (for stems blue has been good to me), 220 grit inside the stem base, cap, and bar contact area. Never a failure since 87. ... more »

Our family owns a body shop, and a couple years ago we painted some custom bike parts for a customer a metallic teal color from a 91 Geo Storm, and its was accented with copper pinstriping. At first I thought it would look like shit, but it's what he ... more »

I'm one you can add to the list of old fuckers willing to see if their health insurance is worth a damn...... Like you, I live in a desolate area as well, and you don't hardly see ANYONE on a bike here. Age doesn't matter here either, kids don't do shit ... more »

Added a comment about feature Kevin Peraza Rides the New Mongoose L500 10/14/2019 12:11 PM

Mongoose is really starting to get serious at their roots. The Legion line has alot to offer, and not that anyone on here cares,but their race line is very impressive for being absent for a spell. Pricing things to where a person can get into a new gig relatively easy and not be ashamed of it. The whole Wal Mart fiasco really put a hurting on the brand.....give em props for trying to recover.

Thanks for good responses guys. As far as his uses of it, his campus welcomes bikes. He is literally within 4 blocks of everything he needs to do everyday, and he has requested a BMX style bike to tool around on. Also, there is a skatepark about a 1/4 ... more »

Maybe he could figure out his biking on his own, but he puts enough pressure on himself keeping his grades in good shape. Plus, I'm his Dad, and if I want to buy him another bike, I will. I was asking bike advice, nothing more. I don't need you telling ... more »

Ok, my 11 year old is getting pretty into BMX, and we went to an old riding spot I rode at 20 plus years ago. Its kinda rundown, but he seemed really stoked to crack out a shovel and such to rebuild and have fun. In the process, the old "bug" started ... more »
