Setbacks and Bordem!

Well my parents have decided that its not my descision to spend my own money from my own bank account to buy my new frame and wheel, so its probly not going to happen soon.

Anyways, in the meantime, what color should i paint my current frame, because the paintjob it has now is horrible. And my back is also bothering me, so im taking a day or two off riding to let it rest, therefore making me bored.

Also, any tips on how to bribe my parents?

The only problem is that i got the back account when i was like 7 so its under both me and my moms name, so i cant make withdraws without her present.

I have almost tripple the money i need, so its not like i would be emptying my bank account...

BLAH! This sucks.

I like polls, so vote for your color, haha.

Im not spending all my money either, it wouldnt really even make a dent in my bank account, considering each week i make around $15 plus other jobs like house and baby sitting...

$600 is how much it would cost for my frame, wheel and sprocket.

I have at least $2000

Thats gay. Just whine and complain and cry and throw big fits about it until they let you. And for the colour, do a fade thing like black into lime green or some other bright colour. My old frame was black into neon orange. Although the fadingness wasn't the best, only the headtube and about 4 or 5 inchest past was black.

Premium, I was just scouting around and saw a pretty cheap frame you might like on staffs... the Felt Sheriff frames actually does not look that bad, and it comes with an integrated headset and bb. It does however have gyro tabs (which you could cut off if you really want to), and can only run 30-11 gearing. If those two things don't bother you, then it looks very good for the price.

That's not half bad. Which one? And what exactly do you mean by "hooked up"? Does that mean: for free, good deal, or just getting one at the normal price?
