Default RE: bicycles

For the summer, I ride freestyle bikes so that I can show off the tricks that I can do. they never survive beyond fall though... last one I had was a cross of a dyno frame, with a haro F3 fork. called it a dyno F3. destroyed it one day hanging out with a bunch of people, grinding on benches and stuff.[] ended up walking home with the chain dragging the ground, 2 flat tires, a tree branch stuck in the back wheel, no brakes, and 2 pockets full of bearings, bolts and other parts. (you can guess how crazy I went with that thing)

For this winter, (and also to replace the dyno) I am using a nice mountain bike that I got at a yard sale. it is a Motiv HP sonora.
it is a hard tail with a nice front suspension fork, decent tires for snow, 21 speed, 24 inch frame.(or 26 I'm not sure) it has a higher top speed than the dyno did, but it lacks the same break-neck acceleration and responsive handling. and I can't do tricks on it. it acts more like a minivan than a sporty import. gets me from point A to B reliably though.

you know they sell tires with spikes in them for snow. . . I would never need them because it never snows where I am at

i have a specialized hard rock sport disc but dont really ride much. i got it for 250 on sale. i also have one of those bikes with one pedal, but it has four wheels. a 2001 yamaha blaster. i dont really ride it much anymore either, its not as fun as it used to be. it isnt fast enough, i need something bigger. i guess i am just lazy as far as not riding the other.

your an idiot rs4rallydriver, say you can do all these tricks and that you had a cross between a dyno and a haro, your a moron who probably can barely ride a bike, FIRST OF ALL BIKES DO NOT HAVE BEARINGS, and theres isnt very many bolts, and grinding benches isnt going to break anything you moron, and your a moron, have i mentioned that already because i want to make that very clear, idiot idiot idiot,

think you know bikes and can do tricks, i hate people like you, ahhh, it makes me so mad people like you, anyway im going tonight to acutally race ABA bmx on a redline jr. cruiser with anser carbon forks, crupi cranks, a titanium bottom bracket and king headset, bullseye hubs laced with z rims, i hate you rs4rallyracer, you need to find a nice gullable retarded girlfrind who will put up with listening to your bull **** talk

found an old pic of what i deemed the "Chop-ikaze". i threw this together with leftover junk back in about 2004. it was a pain in the ass to ride, and not comfortable, but it was fun. i think i eventually shortened the front. i didn't ride it much and it just sat around taking up space and eventually got parted out and scrapped. kinda wished i hung on to it. a little refining and a few new parts and it could have been cool.
