Big fan. My flatland bike shouts hypocrite though. 36's with 3/8's in front and 36's with 14 mills in the back. But my park rider is 48's and 14 mills front to back.

Ah, that's what I was thinking. Something to do this winter when it's 20* outside. I'll have my dad powdercoat her.

To really set it off, go #2, swap the striped seat for a solid white one and a purple cable over the blue one. THAT would be nice.

I could do that. I painted the seat myself, so sanding it down real quick and painting it solid white wouldn't be a big deal, but I noticed the white plastic gets dirty really fast. Oh well, nothing more paint can't fix. And I got that Ody linear cable for freeeeee. I had a white regular Animal cable.

I ride in bmx demo shows and wanted a bmx ride that would stand out . It also has a little bit of an old school look, bikes from the 80's were set up with loud colors.

Not me. I've always liked purple. Pink, not so much.

just for the heck of it, here's my street bike, which is probably going to get some knobbies and track time soon.

Rockstar 14mm fork
Old rusty Schwinn bars. Cut down .5" on each side
Solid Headset
2000 Dyno stem

Odyssey 13T freewheel
Odyssey Elm street rear tire
Dyno stock front tire
Eastern Stealth cranks 175mm
Eastern Sealed BB
Odyssey Twisted PC pedals
Snafu lite 7075 Sprocket 36T

Pretty nice, kinda old schoolish compared to today's standards too. A 5+ pound frame, Midways, a freewheel, big sprocket, and one of those seat post things. Don't see them too often.

hehe. compared to the bike i built before it (pictured below) the killing machine is the bike of the future! i did the midways because they were cheap and i am fat, the cheap homers necessitated the freewheel and bigish sprocket.



2000 Dyno Slammer. I built this one for flatland stuff.
Profile SS cranks
KHE geisha lite 9T / Sun big city rear wheel
Dyno stock wheel on the front
St Martin 26T sprocket
Odyssey twisted PC pedals
Odyssey griswald grips
Odyssey bar mitzvah bars
Drive twin stem
