New parts...

Seeing how my crown of having the best bike in my area has been overthrown by my friend getting an S&M, I need to buy better parts so I can be better then him. I myself, do a hybrid of street and flatland BMX, and am looking for a new parts. Heres my set-up, 04 DK Cleveland, stock fork, crank, stem, headset, and brakes.
Odyssey Hazard-lite wheelset 36 spoked 14 toothed cog, Odyssey Bario 4 peice bars, KMC 710 chain. Recenly I've been feeling a slight kick in my crank, I think its my pedal, but before I drew to this conclusion I completely rebuilt the crank and tightened it. Im thinking, of getting an S&M Redneck Stem, Primo Pedals, Hoffman Skidmark Tires, And a new set of crank arms, and eventually a new fork.

you'd be far cooler if you learned how to ride and put him and his $bling$ to shame.

I can ride better then him but only because I can manual, and surf on my bike(he's a better jumper, but **** jumping). But still I must have the best bike around. Even though its has its downside, it got stolen once, and my $500 investment seemed gone unil i found the ****ing bastard who stole it and beat their ass into the ground.

Screw the BMX bikes, if you're just trying to go broke for the purpose of status you should go get a Look 486 road bike with full Campy Record 10 gruppo and Zipp tubular wheels. And you should ride it to school.

So basically what you're saying is that you're terrible at riding, but you want the most expensive bike around so you can look cool.

Not terrible, im okay. I use my BMX for alot more things then tricks, its my mode of transportation, my pimp mobile, ice drag racing, my mountainbike. Also when I got this bike, I sucked and could barely bunny hope let alone manual or grind. In order to make myself worthy of a bike like this I actually started going to the skate park and doing tricks. Im trying to get good, and have a pimp mobile at the same time. BTW, I would never ride a road bike, road bikes are gay. I mean I git a god damn jump with on and the ****ing rim folded.

That's because road bikes aren't designed to be jumped, they're designed to stay on the road. Christ.

Pimp mobile? Are you giving the 12-year old girls peg rides home or something? And I'm not even going to comment on "ice drag racing."

$15,000 road bike = much more pimp than: $700 BMX bike

Any way you slice it. And you can't do tricks, what are you worried about?

I only have one back peg so that'd be pretty hard. And I can kidna tell they're ment to stay on the road just look at how skinyn the rims are. Ice drag racing, you might not understand but here in Mass we have this thing called winter and it gets cols and water freezes, which means well BMX on ICE! And ice drag racing is awesoem you race accross a lake, you mgiht not be amused by it but I am.

Because the $15,000 car would be a POS Korean econobox and the $15,000 road bike would still be more pimp than you'll ever be.

No i'd buy a used car thats not Korean, or Japanese. And $15,000 on a bike is a waste of money. Unlessyour Lance Armstong I dotn think you need a bike that cost $15,000. For $15,000, I'd expect a stearo system, and a motor, so it it doesn't have that i'll pass.

Oh man Im a poser. Buddy I am far from a poser, I know kids on $1000 BMX bikes who can't even bunny hop. I have a friend who is one of them kids who rode a walamrt bike because he couldn't afford a good bike. Out of good nature, I gave him a Specialized Frame, a 3 peice, a set of good rims, out of respect. I dont go to the skatepark alot for a reason, its too god damn far away. If i could I would go to the skate park. I improvise, I build dirt jumps, ****ty wooden ramps. I ****ing try to be good but theres only so much someone like me can do with, what I have. I can't go to the skatepark that much so i improvise. There are so many people who can't do **** but atleast I admit it. I do suck, so STFU about it ***. Go **** yourself.

Only a poseur would sit and argue the definition of poseur.

That being said, it's usually a poseur who is the first to accuse someone else of being a poseur.
