    If you never want to have a flat ever again, get Animals.

    Dear WTP,

    How does it feel to have such a nice bike, but brutally **** it with the presence of those tires?

    I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with Animal tires.

    i got the maxxis ringworms ( 110 psi ) and they hold up really good. strong and thick. plus the high psi keeps my tires from pinching, which was a serious problem for me for a while.

    This is my dumpy PowerLite P-17 I picked up at Goodwill for $25. Since this photo was taken I stripped off the OEM decals and added my own... Now when I ride around the neighborhood I can tell my wife I'm out dropping the FBomb.




    Its a bit small so I'm in the market for either a cruiser or a XL framed 20". I have done nothing to the bike as I simply wanted something I could jump on and ride at a moment's notice. I normally ride road and race at the velodrome, but that is more involved and certainly not safe at night. This is just so simple and care-free, I love BMX. I know the seat is too high... but otherwise it throttles my knees! Excuses, excuses, I know I should be shot for such a heinous crime... I'll tell you, these rival my track racing bike for quad workouts!

    That's a nice-looking bike. We don't really see too many flatland bikes

    If those Plegs in the back are 14mm, don't throw them out, I'll take them off your hands.

    . . . I officially went brakeless. . . couldn't deal with adjusting my brakes anymore. Plus the bolt holding the cable is stripped(and it isn't tight enough to hold the cable) so that is 98% of the reason. This shall be interesting. I switched my back tire out again to The Walls, the 1.95 of the other tire just couldn't cut it.

    your bike is ok. it's ok for an all black bike with nothing exceptional. it does look good tho, no hate. i'm just being honest. i've seen a lot of sick bikes.
