    If you grind the red will wear off so why bother?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    The ole man gets a BMX

    While out searchin for older bike parts for restorations I'm doin, I came across this one. Regular 20" just dont cut it and I'm lookin to relive tha speed and ease I had in the younger years, lol... My Goose mtn bike is just not as fun to cruise on and sits me too high, the BMX just feels closer, and more comftorable to cruise around on. Not lookin to race, just cruise and maybe do some desert trails... Start rippin on her, I already yanked the reflectors, more than likely the heat *** will be comin out and strip all the decals off, will be repaintin the brake lever and the v-brake to an alien green color, then do some new decals or possibly airbrush some graphic on it. I may look to go to a 3 piece crank set if I can find something reasonable and sturdy, not lookin to spend $300 on a bike I got or $60. I'm looking for a new seat, probably carbon fiber, just cause it looks cool, not worried about weight, but the red striped plastic one has to go. I'm also looking for suggestions, It's currently running 41/17 but I seem to be over peddling and just spinning, I've been told to try a 42 to slow the peddling rate down. Well like I said, just an old man, 42, lol out for some solid cruizin around...

    What's with the valve cap? It looks like it's jumping out of the picture; I keep seeing it out the corner of my eye and thinking it's the mouse cursor or something

    You are obviously not 42 or close, lol, the seat is there in case I do sit while coasting and the bars may get brought back, I'm looking for an offset seat post to get me a lil further back if I need it. Still trying to find a reasonably priced 3 pc crank set too.

    42 or not that seat is way to high to do anything other then commute on it, and your steering is going to feel like garbage with your bars at that angle. Also, most 3 peice cranksets are pretty afordable right now. theres fit sealed cranks for like $100, even a good set of profiles wont set you back more then 150

    Advice taken, and I'll try a few diff angles on the bars. The local shop has a set of profiles for 190 dont remember the model but complete cept for the chain gear and pedals.

    I scored this retro 2006 Haro Sport last week. I changed out the stock wheels with Peregrine Super Pro 48's and the sliver Haro pedals with some black DX type ones.

    Feels like 1988 again...

    That looks pretty cool. I like the color. I just don't like the frame.

    The whole point of the frame is so it looks vintage.

    There's a lot of retro ones coming out the last few years, haven't seen anyone riding them though. One of the shops near me had the PK Ripper and a couple of Quadangle retro models last time I was there.
