Have you ever had all these at once, I've always had a jacked up seat and colored tires, and I had mags once upon a time, and I still have a big sprocket, kids at the skate park say I was born in the wrong century, but have you had any of these?

Yes. Mongoose Motomags, 46/16 gearing, high seats were everywhere, along with red tires. Riding bars Chicago style was also quite popular for little kids. When you get older you realize that anything past vertical increases your chances of going otb, and also increases the chances of your stem slipping.

Yes. I started on a Pacific, then a Dyno Air with 44/16, 4 pegs, and everything from no brakes, to gyro front and rear brakes. 45 lbs on that beast.

Never had mags though.

My seat is still at least 5 inches of post out of the frame.

I run 28/9 gearing and a higher seat. But not so much that you would even notice... I wanna go 30/10 gearing though. I wanna build a trail only bike.
