All the bikes are running the same parts, just different colors, except the rear hub on the black bike is not sealed, just wanted to try an experiment and see the difference

Why have 3 identical bikes? haha
I think the red one looks best, then the black one, the the white one.

I'm confused as to why you have three of the same bike. Other than that, they don't looks too bad. And I agree that the red looks the best out of them all haha

Black Label is a Mirraco sub brand designed by Dave Mirra, some people love it, other people hate it, personally i prefer it over most other products i have used, to me its the best price for the quality, never had issues with any Black Label product other then there hubs, but they have recently changed there hub to a new style so they may have corrected the issue.

Each bike i would considered dialed, i went through a few setups till i found what i got now, this works the best for me, im very happy with it.

Each bike is worth about $1600.00 - $1700.00 i used to ride a setup worth $2500.00 and i can say that a $1700.00 setup is just as good, dont pay for a name brand just because its expensive, buy what works for you, thats what should matter..

i still don't know why he has three? you only need to ride one right? idk but i obsess way more about riding than bikes as objects.

|

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

i have two bikes, but one is just all my old parts thrown on just to keep them organized. but three identicle???

I seek progression, not perfection.

Agreed. I have had 2 bikes before. but i only rode one most of the time. The other bike was for beer runs,and i could just leave it outside with no worries. It was still a decent bike but it was mostly just recycled parts,thrown together to avoid walking.

Why would anyone want 3 identical bikes? If i had that kind of money i would have:
1 built up everyday rider.-something a little beat up,kinda dull and boring ,but fucking dialed!
1 built up blingy bike to tote around to upscale parks and drop milf pantys like its hot .-Something flashy and shiney with gold plated rims or something.
and 1 old school favorite built up to be a show piece in my living room. Like an old haro master or something with fucking white tires and white grips that you could eat off of because it never leaves the living room and is an outdated "classic"

This is just me though. Im sure everyone else would prob rather blow 3 bikes worth of cash at Chuck E Cheese or something but i think this would be way better then having 3 of the EXACT same bikes.

But hey, its your life bro and those bikes look pretty decent so, ENJOY! have a blast man!

if i had money i would build a banging dialed bmx bike, a super nice track bike, and maybe a cross country bike since i haven't rode cross country in a long time and it's pretty fun if you get into it.(plus it builds endurance)
