    Should I buy this bike ?




    FBM The Take Custom BMX Bike

    Mint color The take "One True Ave" BMX bike. Rode for 1 minute; I flipped over the handlebars and dislocated my jaw thus ending my BMX career. This bike is BRAND NEW and cost close to $975 worth of parts (plus $225 at South Nassau Hospital for X-Rays & treatment). Only the lever got some scratches and I would replace the left grip; the bike could be sold in a shop as new.
    Looking for $450.
    The Take MADE IN THE USA frame 20.75" top tube
    Fit Series 2 Feather weight bars.
    Edwin animal Grips.
    Eastern 3 pc cranks, lightweight fork, 48 spoke back wheel and stem.
    Premium Lightweight Front wheel.
    Odyssey plastic pedals.
    Shadow Little Ones Pegs.
    Animal Pivotal Seat Post.
    UGP Limited Edition Pivotal Seat.
    Shadow Seat Clamp.
    Odyssey Brake Lever.

    Weight - approx 25 lbs.

    I would have to say yes. It would be nice to know what kind of "lightweight forks", stem, and wheel are on it though.

    Being that I just sold my 2+ year-old bike that's a lot more beaten up and doesn't have as good of parts for $375, that's a steal.

    I'm a master haggler. For real, the guy was a failure. He came to pick it up today. He was 21, didn't go to school, didn't have a license, and wasn't doing anything with his life. He was fat, had a big burly beard, a nose ring, and a tattoo. His father had to drive him around. He didn't even try out the bike or pedal around or anything. Just handed me the cash and took the bike. I don't think he knew what the parts were or anything; I think he just liked my bike for the purple parts, which goes to show that aesthetics are very important in conning idiots.

    Yeah, he definitely weighs a bit more than I do. Probably somewhere around double what I weigh now after being injured for the last two months and being unable to go to the gym. I've lost 15 pounds.
