My buddies bro used to ride and had a standard sta250 I think it was that frame, but he hasn't rode in a long time. He recently moved to Utah to be a action sports trainer, and he asked if I wanted anything off the bike, I needed new cranks because I've been running stock cranks from like 06' forever. And by no means is my bike stock I've just never gotten around to buying cranks (I know it's dumb, but whatever). Moral of the story is I ended up with free promo powerbites (the original ones) the left arm pedal boss was stripped so I ordered a new arm off empire and now I have a sweet set of tough as nails cranks! Thinking about getting the right arm soon just so they looks fresh and new...for a week or two until they start getting shitty.

Well then sir it's an sta500 I know it was an sta, I just could have sworn they made a 250 at one point. This frame is over 8 years old. Maybe they used to, but either way it was the sickest bike in its prime completely custom from the start it was his graduation present, along with a trip to Woodward

Good shit man! They are great rides! When I was about 11 it was like an honor between the neiborhood kids to take that thing for a ride. And now it's a good feeling of nastalgia to have a part from that hero of my childhood in my bike smile
