where can i find a bike that has:
2 sets of U brakes
14 mm axles
Maybe chrome rims
A gyro or ORYG
Made for Freestyle
and around $250 to $300
08-09-04, 11:30 AM
get a trek tr20 200 dollars
the gyro is the oryg, oryg i believe i believe is the company. that thing is just what brings the brake cables together. if you look closely oryg is gyro backwards. everything on the trek is chromoly
08-09-04, 11:38 AM
ok ill check into it
08-09-04, 11:39 AM
nah dont really like it
oryg is the name of a component made by a company called sst, which is owned by the person that designed the gyro for odyssey

08-09-04, 04:30 PM

GO FLATLAND bikers
08-09-04, 05:12 PM

there you can look at a bunch of different complete bikes in your price range.
08-10-04, 04:20 PM
ive been lookin there but all i found was the eastern sequence but i havent heard great things about that, i asked in my other forum
HOFFMAN DISRUPTER IL1 #101308 $369.99
that is a pretty good bike for the money. as mentioned before, your only going to be able to purchase a low end bike for that amount of money. but it will go a long ways if you take care of it. keep stuff tight and well greased.
the frame and fork are 4130, has 14mm axles. what more could you want?
08-10-04, 04:41 PM
a low weight bike lol
I recommend the KHE beater with a crank upgrade. The only one of your qualifications it doesnt have is the System DiaTech internal rotor instead of a oryg or a gyro
08-10-04, 04:45 PM
well any kind of detangler that doesnt suk
do not get a KHE. you will never figure out how to get the rear brakes to work.
and light bikes cost money. just think, kids 10 years ago didn't have light bikes and it didn't stop them from riding well.
08-10-04, 04:48 PM
ya i dont really like the khe beater either
08-10-04, 04:58 PM
wat, that thing is really messed up, all their bikes are messed up looking
KHE has a HUGE head tube and the detangler is inside it. most people can't get them to work worth a poop without messing with them a bunch.
that hoffman I mentioned is not bad at all. if will hold up well, if you take care of it. you can learn peg tricks without the axles breaking and learn some good riding skills while not destroying expensive parts. then, once you have some good skills you will have a better idea of what parts/bike will work for you and your style of riding.
and don't worry about the weight of it. it will help you get stronger. do you think the guys in the gym lift light weights to get strong? no, they lift heavy weights.....

well that bike was a lil over my budget, besides i got a great deal on a mirra flair, 200 bucks with 60 buck shipping, jeez

the mirra flair, he sent it and it should be at my house wednesday
08-14-04, 09:45 PM
good choice and you got it for 260 including shipping... not bad since the mirra flair is about $450 new but thats the 03
08-14-04, 09:48 PM
ya, its white, idk y but i just cant seem to find any good pics of a white mirra flair, except for one on ebay which that one had all the stickers torn off and it had other stuff painted on it
08-14-04, 09:50 PM
white will look fine, i prefer a grayish color if ur getting one close to white, like the 03 mirra pro has putty which is a light gray and looks nice.
08-14-04, 09:57 PM
ya its like pearl white i guess
08-14-04, 09:58 PM
yea thats a good color, my mirra pro is almost white but its grayish
08-14-04, 10:01 PM
ya u and me r postin in two forums talkin about the same thing, this is the first time ive had a hot topic
08-14-04, 10:03 PM
lol i know, gj! well im bored and need something to do. so what year is ur mirra flair?
08-14-04, 10:04 PM
2003, last year they made em
08-14-04, 10:05 PM
ya thats what i figured. so what condition is the bike in?
08-14-04, 10:10 PM
its got a couple scratches on the chainstay and a couple more here and there, but i still want it, he even offered me a bunch of mirra and haro stickers, plus some valve caps, the chrome ones that look like bolts and stuff like that
08-14-04, 10:11 PM
thats a good deal because thats about half the price and urs is in good condition but u will see when u get it lol
08-14-04, 10:14 PM
ya i know, i hope it wasnt totally abused by the guy
08-14-04, 10:19 PM
lol hopefully not, its hard to make an abused bike look better if theres rust and crap
