Recovered a stolen bike today! It was stolen about 6 months ago, and today this kid who rides hit me up & was like hey I found Devin's bike. So he met me somewhere & took me to the kid's house. Apparently the kid tried selling it to him so we went up to his door & knocked, he comes out & is like what's up? I was like "Hey man I hear you got a bike for sale?" He's all pumpe and is like "Yep! It's got an Animal frame, uhhh Animal forks.. Lots of Animal stuff..." I asked if I could see it and he brings it out and goes "Oh btw man I'm Nick, nice to meet ya." Goes to shake my hand & I'm like nope haha. Told him what was up & started naming the parts off and he's like "Uhh no it ain't stolen." I'm like flip it upside down, I bet you anything it says "BADOS206" so he does and goes "Uhh.. uh no it says UV0.." I cut him off and said "Wait hold on I'll name the rest for you" and did, and he looked like he was gonna shit his pants but goes "It ain't stolen, I built this 2 years ago." I pulled up facebook pics of me riding the frame, retiring it, and then building it up to what it is now and he's just shocked but still denies it. I'm like "Well I can stand here & keep bringing more proof up or I can just call the cops." He says it's impossible that it was stolen so I pull my phone out and he goes "Wait no man here just take it" but then his fuckin mom comes out defending him & shit and I explained what was up & he told her that he got it from someone back in "Uhhh.. uh uh..... uhhh March or April" already contradicting his story. So I was like well I'm getting a hold of the owner then we'll be back and told them if the bike goes missing, there's gonna be serious problems cause I have witnesses who saw the bike & shit. Later, I get a hold of Devin & he comes over and we get the bike back.. Then his dumbass causes a fuckin scene calling the mom a bitch & shit, I was trying to calm him down cause we got the bike back, so I walked away, they argued a little bit and he finally left. CSB but I'm pumped I got another friend's bike back, I'm like a bike detective haha. Luckily it wasn't spray painted either, looked untouched. Pics!!

Thanks a lot!

I had people with me both times, when I called him out about it being stolen though and he kept denying it, he looked like he was either gonna shit himself or take a swing at me so my one friend comes up and is like "sooo are we gonna have to do this the hard way or.." and then he kinda backed down and kept saying it's impossible that it could be stolen. Fuckin idiot haha. Always good to have a group of people with you

it really is. last Summer I found this one kid's bike that got stolen nearly 3 years before we got it back. That dude was stoked as all hell cause he LOVED that bike haha

@Jamieispanda: nope, it was like untouched. Some weird orange stains on the chain though and the tires were really low but other than that, it was just how it was when I built it up for my friend

Animal actually has their own frames, they may only be prototypes still. Last time I was at the animal warehouse we were having races around the shop and games of bike, pretty sure Jared Washington was rocking one. They had a few laying around, looked gnarly. I'm riding a Skavenger el blanco currently, if they're anything like this ill be buying one.

Ah cool, I never check up on bmx stuff and new parts lol. They must still be prototypes or something. Skavenger seems like a solid company but none of the frames have the geo I like : /

Yeah I don't think many people know, I doubt it's been posted. It's always good to try new setups. I usually like long back ends but this frame feels perfect to me. Probably the most dialed frame I've had to be honest

Yeah that's true, I had a Sunday Ian which has a 13.65 I think and it was pretty good. I ride a 13.25 now and like it 13 felt good too.
