Late night Craigslist cruising. I’m a sucker for gadgets and deals. Scored a cheap BMX for the price of a set of pegs. It’s garbage but will serve my purpose and I can get my money back when I get bored of it. Disassembling it to make a hang five machine and moving the rear pegs to my beater. That will find it’s way into a manual machine. Probably pull the chain and hang the rear from the pegs.

Anyone else have a compulsive need to collect garbage? Or experience with either a hang five machine or manual machine for that matter? I’d like to learn hang fives and get better at bringing the front wheel up for big hops. Seem like cool toys to have laying around otherwise.

I tried the hang 5 machine. I cannot hang 5.


Don’t put 25.4 bars in a 22.2 stem.

I can hang 5 a real bike for as long as I got speed and once I tried the “hang 5 machine” just for fun, it’s dumb and also wayyyy harder to balance than a real hang 5.

I hang 5 on a manual machine, does that count? Use it mostly to practice peg balance points when I can't actually ride, seems to be helping a bit.


Remember when you could ride all day and not be sore for a week?

I’m like that but with scooter parts lol.

I’ve tried the hang-5 machine and I agree that there’s really no substitute for the real bike, I could never get it haha.

Testimony and apologies

I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

Built my manual machine. $5. I had an old scrap 2x6 and deck screws laying around though. Pictured with the 24” cruiser.
