    Bottom Brackets

    Today me and my friend were talking about bottom brackets on bikes in math class, and he used his hands to compare the side of a mountain bike BB, and a BMX BB. BMX was larger, and I asked if he was implying something else.

    Discuss.

    As long as his hand wasn't demonstrating the WIDTH ( ) of the BB I think it's all good.

    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Look what math did to his brain. Skip all your math classes from now on or you'll end up doing the same thing. Stupid math.

    He's a BMXer. He has $500 into his bike and locks it with a $5 lock.

    I lock my bike that I found with a $30 lock.

    My bb is wider than everyone's but since it's on a folding bike with small wheels I can't be compensating for anything.
