Naming a bike, I can see. Naming it like that? thats a bit of a stretch. Rename it as a woman. Thats more acceptable.

Apparently my post got deleted and I got infractions. I'll clean it up.

Basically, what you call "acceptable" is your own opinion, and you're entitled to it, but apparently our opinions differ. I named my bike what I wanted to name it, and if you don't like it, hey, that's your opinion.
Continuing on.
Why I picked this name: I like the sound of it, and how it looks. Also, it is not gender specific, alot like my bicycle, and everyone's bicycle. Bikes are not gender specific. So, anyway, if you don't like how I named my bike, live with it.

So basically what you're saying is "You're entitled to your opinion, just not the freedom to voice it."

And yeah, telling people to insert members into their bodies generally doesn't go over well with the mods. Who'da thunk?

To be a little more pleasant, though, I'll say that's a nice looking bike you got there. I honestly don't know jack about BMX bikes (I just picked one up for something more nimble to play on when I can't make it to the MTB trails), but it looksnice to me

Slow ya roll homie. I was just being a bit sarcastic. Apparently fgss has been rubbing off on me. But don't you think its a little stupid to flip **** on the internet?

And I apologize. I do like the looks of it, especially the super vibrant spokes on your rear. Character.

26's, usually have it on slicks but it was snowing the other day so I figured it was time to put the knobbies on. Been tossing the idea around of building up one of my old frames with some parts I have laying around or just building up a Little Buddy frame.

Thats pretty awesome either way. And over in ssfg, someone else was talking about slipping on ice, and it was answered that slicks are somewhat better, because there's more surface contact.

Here's mine:




It's a 2012 Mirraco 20Forty, pretty bone stock with Black Label components except for the Sunday 24umph XL bars I put on it (which are made of awesome; if you ride 24" you should be running these bars.) Aside of the bars I'm probably not going to replace any parts until I break them.

Thanks! I can't ride 20" bikes anymore, even with the long top tubes. They just feel... sketchy to me. I'm 24" all the way.
