    i found a biek today in the trash, it actually was my friends old bike that he threw away and somone found it and rode it. It seems to be in decent condition, one question in it has a short crank, what i mean is the rod that goes down from the crank to the pedals is short, is this good or bad?

    what i mean is the rod itself going down is short, it feels like riding a kids bike, but yes i will post pictures up tomorrow, it's to dark now

    1) A crankarm is not a rod.
    2) Rode is a past-tense verb.
    3) We drive on roads.

    Christ.

    well it's a 20 inch, but i dont have money for a new crank so i guess im going to stick with this one till i find a good deal at a pawn shop for a cheapo bike so i can pull the crank off and put it on this one




    edit: thanks for the help, unlike other people who replied here

    It has kid cranks on it 'cause it's a kid bike. It was probably in the trash for a reason.
