Check out my new bike, tell me how great it is, don't say anything negative though




i love this new bike...its built like a TANK! I'm thinking of using it for some light XC race duty since the frame is nearly indestructable, and the fork.....OMG the FORK on this thing just soaks up the bumps from the cobblestones like they're not even there! I know a lot of people aren't into the old-english style bikes, but I don't care what your opinion is. I'm gonna ride DH on this thing and I don't have to listen to you if I don't want to because this is the first bike I've gotten that isn't a hand-me-down from my big sister, and it really hurts my feelings when people say my bike isnt as good as a Trek Session 10. It's all the rider anyhow, so I can do whatever i want to on my new bike.


It's a replacement for my old bike:

I was thinking about taking them off the old bike along with that old-school chain guard and installing them on my new bike.

Well, if you tru the front wheel, adjust the fenders and tune the grommet valve I think it will make a great DH bike. But if the grommet valve can't be tuned, your in deep trouble.

Wow, what are you on?! That Banshee worth at least like 10 thousand dollars! For $20 that is a heck of a deal!



My sense of humor fell out of my back pocket when I was riding... Luckily someone returned it to the lost and found!

It doesnt matter! MY bike is what we're all supposed to be drooling over here! How DARE you come into a thread that is supposed to be all about ME and talk about other bikes that are more expensive and better suited to trail riding than mine?!

I'm in the NAVY so show some RESPECT. Just because I ride in a boat that is long, hard, and full of seamen doesnt mean I don't know everything about bikes even though this is my first bike that didn't come from Santa Claus. Hell, I even got some pink fuzzy bunny slippers from my grandma to match the hardcore paintjob! The navy taught me that if I go to a public forum and TALK ALL LOUD AND USE LOTS OF CUSS WORDS, then people will think I'm all hardcore. I learned that from a friend of mine. He said that if I cuss a lot, everyone will think I can kick their arse and that I'm really hardcore!

I don't care if my bike costs me the effort to pull it out of the city dump...it's PERFECT for what I plan on doing with it, and is better than anything YOU ride anyhow! Besides, its built like a TANK!
