    gnarlthrash savings

    im saving up for a bike because my redline 5spot (like 45 ****ing pounds) is going to ****. the chainwheel is bent, the bars click, and chain broke, the brakes are broken etc. i kind of beat the **** out of even from bunnyhops it seems. ive only been riding for a month or two but im getting really into it. i ride street like stairs/gaps/grinds/banks and ide really like a light bike but not one that feels really unsturdy. and of course something that will last. i wanna know waht bike im gonna save up for so i know how much to put in my savings acount every month. im thinking i dont wanna pay over 500 bucks for a new bike. any ideas for a not too expensive bike which is light and super smooth/strong?

    The only bikes out there in that price range will do you right. Doubt you will find a lemon for 500$.

    Actually, I'd make a wager that it's because you had a crappy bike, not because your riding is gnar as f*ck.
