That stem looks so high.

wethepeople 06-24-07 10:24 PM

And I really couldn't care less, it's comfy for me, if you haven't noticed I'm not trying to have a trendy bike, just a bike that works for me.

Slams-bought to help out sore wrists.
Stem-Up, because thats how I like it.
Brakes-Because I like them.
Seat-Not slammed, set up just right.
Sprocket-28t with 10t driver, because I like my bearings.

Am I missing anything?

FitRider 921 06-24-07 10:25 PM

Okay, whatever works for you. I just didn't know if you noticed your stem. Your seat isn't that high.

Callum, your bike is amazing, although it looks very unused. Also, since you do not have brakes, maybe you would wish to cut the flanges of your grips off because those can just be annoying and cutting them off makes the bike look cleaner.

i just relized that i havent cut the flange thingys off my grips yet

callumrides 06-25-07 05:00 PM

fit my bike only looks unused cause i never ever ride dirt and cause i maintain it regularly. and i like my flanges, mot sure why. but i might cut them off because im trying to learn barspins at the moment. and if they arent there there is more room for catching.

Good luck learning barspins with uncut Slams.

premiumbmx2005 06-25-07 05:20 PM

FuzzyRyder 06-25-07 05:22 PM

I love flanges! Bike check comming possibly tommorow, if my new bars are in.

I'm pretty sure he cuts his down just by the looks.

I did a few into the foam pit when i was at Woodward, got one or two, but the rest were terrible.

I was too much of a sissy to take them to the resi. Although now i really want to learn them.

In the oldschool Lotek Mixtape his bars looked pretty wide.

premiumbmx2005 06-26-07 10:12 PM

how could you call the lotek mixtape 'old school'?

FitRider 921 06-26-07 10:21 PM

I don't quite know, a lot of people forget about it.
