frame: guttershark 21"
forks: primo strand or shadow 25mm offset forks
bars: kink lynx 8.25x28.5 or shadow 9'x30"
stem: profile mark mulville push
headset: odyssey
front wheel: profile mini hub 3/8 - shadow spokes - fly rim
rear wheel: profile mini 14mm - shadow spokes - fly rim
both tires:KHE dirt tires
seat: aitken piv
post: shadow piv
cranks: profile GDH
pedals: shadow nostra sealed
sprocket: profile wake
chain: shadow v2 interlock
BB: shadow
brake arms: fly from previous bike
brake lever: odsy small from previous bike
pads: odsy slim by four clears
cable: eastern moray linear(best i have used)
grips: odi longnecks

im thinking all black with purple hubs and stem. or all black with lime green spokes.

i have never had a nice bike, and all i think about is how bad i want a nice bike, so since im starting a job next week, and get paid alottt, as soon as i get the first couple checks this is exactly what i am getting.

i might also expand my sporting to more sports than just bikes, but im not sure as to what sport i am the most interested in.

im also getting a 1992 ford ranger for $350 that just needs a master cylinder and turning it into a nice offroad buggie since i get a daily driver car the day i get my license. im thinking about getting blake el gingero to do the build since he is the best mechanic in the country.

PLEASE do yourself a favor and get a better frame. the guttershark, IMO, really aint worth it. i would look for an FBM, cult, or something else haha. you know about frame geo right

yeah im not sure on it, i like the geo on it, everyone thinks im all about the weight of it.
but yeah bud, i know geo, when it comes to a bmx bike i know more than 90% of my local bike shops. not to be cocky, it is sadly true.

i like white spokes but that sounds sick. the raw is more of a brown/gold with lots of glitter tho because the clearcoat has a goldness to it but its awesome i love it

i'd probably get the gypsy in raw, but i dunno why but i have always had a fixation on lime green spokes haha.

Any bar over 8.5" is overkill in my opinion.
But other than that, it looks good.

im 6'2 bud, 9" is not overkill by any means, especially when an inch of spacers, a topload stem, and 8.25 rise bars make my back hurt from bending over so far. but thanks for your input broski.

thanks dude, and you can count on it. my last bike was a stock frame and a bunch of hefty parts and it was only 26 pounds according to the scale at my LBS, so i bet it will be nothing, probably around 22 or so...

I'm 5' 11" and i ride 8.25" bars with a flipped Fit DLD (style) stem. They are like 8.65" now. They are a little too big for my likings.

yeah, but im long legged as fuck, and you probably only come up to my nose, thats quite the size difference, and i have always loved massive bars anyway. i get more control with a bigger width and i find it much easier to lift the front end with higher bars, weither it be on the ground or in the air.
