Need some ideas to get a new bike.... might make this one custom I already do classmates homeworks, looks like I'm going to start collecting cans, and working with my dad on the weekends anyone got any more ideas? I need the $ and I'd like to get it as quick as possible.... I haven't ridden in like 2 weeks because of bike maintenance and shits tough..... Had to go out today for like 5mins just to ride....

My current bike is a kink whip the bar ends are all beat up I haven't changed the wheel set in the 2 years I've been riding rims are all fucked up (casing) I busted my BB and cranks had to dish out 200 bucks for those.... I just don't think I should invest anymore money into the frame. My grips fucked up today (gash in my right grip) brakes are shit (It's complicated) and yea I'm in serious need of ideas.....

I can wallride, haven't got my 180's dialed (but I land them frequently), Footjam tailwhips (undialed), learning barspins, and can bunny hop about hip height...... not that my "trick list" matters.....

Anything please =)

jobs..... Are fucking hard to find I'm 16 applied to about 30 jobs didn't get a single call.

Employers aren't interested in hiring some 16 yr old inexperienced kid who can't drive... On top of that there are more liabilities hiring a minor and their are restrictions to what a 16 yr old can do. Work hours are restricted can only work for like 4 hours a day 48 hours per week total. Not to mention the shit load of paperwork an employer has to go through to hire a 16 year old (more than the usual) and "special care" looking after the 16 year old. That is in the state of California..... I've tried trust me....

All the math tutors or come be a nanny for a day jobs seem to be distant and looking for certified cpr people....

Applied to a Toy's R Us as an assembler of bikes (go figure) I thought I'd have a better chance of at least getting into that and fuck no....

Not many lawns to mow around here as it's a heavily apartment complex area

I could go scamming people but I ain't like that

Actually hiring a minor is not that difficult. Not is there an ass ton of paper work. You can work 40 hours a week in The summer. On school days if your at work till 11 you are only allowed to work till 8 the next day. You are to have a half hour break every 5 hours of work.


Not erasing all of that but I realized states are all different. Paper work is basically the same everywhere though.

This is what I do. And pornography. I also bum money off people and sell shit I don't use, that's pretty much how I pay for all my bike shit.

I know how it is man, took me forever to finally get a job going. Not too mention our economy isn't doing so hot right now. Sometimes you gotta call them or go right in and ask so they know you're serious. Try not to be picky with it either, remember that a job is a job.

You can always sell some of your old stuff like electronics and shit on craigslist, scrap some metal, just stuff like that, that can help you out little by little.

At the age of 18 your considered an adult so I assume it's much easier to get a job

It's not about being picky, shit I'll clean urinals for some $ just that I haven't found crap.... I knew a guy my sophmore year that worked at a bank assisting staff but eventually quit.... reason he was working there I believe was because of a family member or some shit.... Don't have family members other than my dad brother and mom I work with my dad (construction) on the weekends but money is hard to come buy at the time and not to mention them paying me is basically paying themselves same household same earnings.

Yea.... It's picking up though more and more constructions going on around here stimulates the economy things seem to be getting better but you never know.

I don't think I have things I can sell... If I were to honestly part out MY stuff It'd be my bike and.... my phone? which was a hand-down and is old as crap.... Ain't got no ipod, ipad, Iphone... don't even have a room.....

Have never been In a fight.... Although i'd say If I were ever to get in one I'd either throw down or back the fuck up.... go all in or nothing O_O

Your serious about selling some drugs? cause this Is a serious thread and I don't think I'd make it as a drug dealer couldn't live with the fact that I'm selling intoxicating substances to people to greater increase their risk of death.... On top of that the laws being broken aren't worth a quick fix....

I'm asking for legitimate answers.... If that was a legitimate answer thank you for the input =)

the way i got my job, is that i had to do 60 hours of community service... and i volunteered there, and after i finished i continued to go, and i was the only volunteer that was constant, and the staff asked me if i wanted a job because there was an opening, and they put in a good word for me and i got it.

No i wasnt serious about selling drugs i was just kidding
ive never done drugs other then weed a few times and i cant now because i get drug tested every 3 weeks for my police pre academy anyways, i was just saying because the people i live around do that but obviously not a good idea

As far as the fight club thats what i do for fun, its not a fight club like the movie or anything its actually like ufc so there legit fighting competitions

As far as more realistic answers, ask some neighbors if they need help around their house or go to job agencies they got me a warehouse job when i was 15, construction aites are good too sometimes they'll hire you for the day to help clean up.
