I have been riding bikes since I could walk but mostly for transport and Mt. biking. Had some crappy bmx mutts over the years butt never rode them. After riding all of my buddies bikes I realized I have been missing out. I have been skateboarding for 15 years so I have always been curious.

Anyways, traded my fixie for my WTP Crysis

Frame: WTP Crysis
Forks: WTP
Bars: WTP
Stem: Demolition F40
Headset: Salt
Grips: Hoffman
Cranks: WTP royal
Sprocket: Salt 25t
Pedals: Eclat surge
Chain: KMC
Seat: WTP
Seatpost: Stolen
Brakes: Salt
Front Wheel: Salt complete, Salt pitch raw 2.25
Rear Wheel: Salt complete, Salt flow 2.1

bike looks clean 8) at least youre moving in the right direction now.. ;P...love when boarders get more stoked on bmx...

white walls would really make that bike jump out at ya man...buts thats just my opinion...

it will look 10 times better if you change the seat angle

why is that? Is it the cool thing to have an anus poker? I thought following the top tube angle looked good to me?

yeah white walls and a different seat would look great! The angle doesnt bother me but the seat itself just looks cheap. The fixed gear looked awesome as well!

2/16/2011 9:05 PM

Yeah, new seat is on the way. If I needed new tires id get ww's

Well when the time comes, Id recomend Fit FAF's they come in a tan wall. There are some actual white walls out there but there not as good as the FAF's..

These seem to have the best tread pattern out of the ww's. dont know if they are actually any good though

My buddy had animal tires and hated em. They were slick as shit on skatelite, and wore out like crazy on the street. Thats why i went with the FAF's. Even though i wanted actual WHITE walls.

|

2/17/2011 9:20 AM

i dont think that i could buy white wall dont they turn brown if u ride trails

2/17/2011 11:19 AM

Probably, if you never clean them. I have white wall cleaner for my motorcycle so I'm not worried about that
