Personally i used to skate, always kind of wanted to get a bike but thought they were all like $500 dollars. One time skating i fucked up my ankle on a gap. I swear the bottom of my foot touched my damn calf. But anyways, i couldnt really skate anymore after that so i got a cheap bike of Dans Comp. I never had problems with my ankle on a bike. Stupid story i know xD but im bored as shit.

Used to cycle around my neighbor hood with my friends on shitty bikes.

Bought a 2008 WTP Reason off a friend for €100

Wanted a new bike

Got a WTP Versus 2012 for Christmas 2012 for €505

Start going to the indoor at my old local

It closed down

Now I ride when my (shit) skatepark downtown is dry

I'm gonna need bigger bars

back in the day had a trek race bike i used just to pedal around. Then i started hitting these dirtjumps that these other bike riders built. back when i was about 14 lol then my trek got stolen and the next day i got a diamondback mr lucky think it was a 1998 model lol and went from there. Started on dirt moved into street riding and then the lil skatepark here was built but wasnt bike friendly but we still rode it. Luckily now they changed the park so bikes are allowed now! Now i ride more street and park.

Someone held a gun to my head, and told me if I didn't ride I'd die, so I rode & rode & rode, real fast.


Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

I used to skate as well. Last summer I was hangin out with one of my friends and I traded some airsoft guns for his hyper metro.

I fixed it up

and have been riding ever since.
