if you cut your toptube 3 inches it doesn't sacrafise any strength

2/11/2010 2:04 PM

Just imagine your riding. Hahahahahahahahaha. Just joking.

There are so many things you can do, the list is almost endless. From drilling holes, running without brakes, using Helium in the tires, hacking shit off, buying lighter parts, using tape instead of grips, I have seen just about everything done. Just search in the box, there has been about a million threads done on this here, as well as BMX-Forum, you can't go into any BMX forum or social networking site without having seen this question asked.

Helium in the tires.

I also chopped off my cock.

i usually just ride. eventually the rubber wears off the tires, grips, and brake pads, plastic shreds off my pedals and bar ends, the pegs usually get a little thinner after a while, chipping paint here and there helps, too.

cut flanges off

ride brakeless (idiocy)

ride pegless

buy the lightest parts possible (plastic parts...)



drill holes in:

rims

seattube

headtube

bars(crossbar)







And NO I don't do ANY of this shit (other than cutting the flanges off my grips, cause it looks better), cause worrying about weight is for pussies.

cut your top tube off, ride one crank and pedal, no grips, no tubes or tires works great

|

2/11/2010 2:56 PM

i drilled holes in my cranks and chain. rims and tires. bars and everywhere possible on my frame. dont run the whole pedal just the spindle. run one bolt instead of two on your wheels. dont run a seat or a seat post. no headset. no grips. use two bolts on your stem. no stem cap. cut your forks. cut your bars. run 16 spokes instead of 32.

|

dont think of it as rape, think of it as surprise sex. and who doesnt love a surprise?

2/11/2010 2:58 PM

get rid of seat-tube, seat, seat post, only run 4 spokes a wheel, no tyres - just tubes, no grips, run 10/2 gear ratio, ride naked/in Lycra, shave/wax your whole body and finally, pee, shit and wank before every ride.

Take a huge shit before you ride. Lose the frame and wheels (not needed), shoes can be heavy too, I wouldn't recommend shoes and pedal pins don't hurt that bad. Take out your bottom bracket and headset.

Seriously, cut the seat post, lose the brakes (bad reason to take of brakes), lighter parts, hollow axles, there's a lot of shit you can do, but weight shouldn't matter that much.

only run 28 spokes instead of 36
cut your pedals in half, only need to stand on half
run no barends and impale your stomach with bars
run NO seat or seatpost.
run no bottom bracket
cut your bars to 15 inches... only need about 4 for each hand
cut off the part of the rim the tire would usually go
