As much as I like low rider bikes, we don't need to have ads posted, much less two.

I've never seen that commercial before; it was interesting. (I don't venture in to this particular forum too often.) Thanks for posting it.

I did not post a ad, I simply posted what was listed in the video's description. I am new to this bike forum and simply wanted to share my favorite bike commercial. I also posted some of the photos that where taken that day, sorry I didn't know my post would bother anyone.

I thought it was cool. Generally, the prohibition is against promoting a product you have an interest in.

Thanks, so no lowrider bicycles on "bikeforums.net"? sorry, I just wanted to chat with other people who enjoyed bikes like the ones in the video; I posted it in the Alt Bike Culture because the description it included bikes such as lowriders. I simply just wanted to make new friends, sorry for the confusion I have caused.

Making friends and sharing your stuff is good. However, people who are just here to advertise whatever it is that they are selling are frowned on. Not that people don't include a link in their signature.

I think that's what Flying Merkel was objecting to. First an ad for soda pop. I didn't have a problem with that, you were sharing some nice bikes in a Sprite ad. But the second set was several links to your store. Then, finally, we got some pics of nice bikes.

But why not get some pictures of a particular bike you love, and tell us how it was made. Interact. As we know you, then we might wander over to the link in your sig.

Ohh ok, makes sense now I can see how a ad from sprite can look bad, in all honesty I support the killer coke campaign (yet I do enjoy this commercial) , I thought the objection was to lowrider bicycles in general thanks for clearing that up. Also I do not own that store, I am a civil engineer student.



Here is a photo of my bike, its currently getting a make over for the new year. I was mostly parts bought from my local shop, but I have getting full custom parts made and i'll back back when its done to show it off.

That's a sweet bike. Looks like you've put a lot into it.

Exactly. Got to fight the galloping scourge of advertising. Cool bike though, Though lowriders are nothing I want, I always like to see what others are up too.

Low rider bikes are cool. A friend once let me ride his back in high school. talk about a smooth ride. Kinda like a mutant beach cruiser. At my age I'm sticking to the road bikes that I can ride metric centuries on.

Good grief! That blue one, 5th from the top is wicked. I'd keep it in a display case and never ride it.
