    converting

    today i got grounded, wasn't allowed to be more than 5 blocks from my house. Couldn't of gone to my local jump spot because its to far, so i was just riding, my brother comes back with his bike fixed, its a bmx, so i take it just bunny hoping onto stuff 1 foot high , nothing bigger than that to jump onto . It actually seemed to be a lot of fun, it was a sort of trial riding i guess. But next time i go jumping at my local scene im going to bring the bmx, i found it actually also works my upper body a lot more, seems nice to get some exercise. Now instead of going suspension im doubting if it's really worth it. Cost and other stuff. This requires no maintenance and im having a lot more fun. I think im going to convert to rigid, Just might. Anyone else gone through this sort of phase? But for the big jumps it's gunna be a lot rougher, from full suspension to rigid. Going to take a while to get used to i guess.

    Don't do it . . . bad spelling will dog you the rest of your life. Stay home and stay in school. Corrected 'aloud' to 'allowed' and 'faze' to 'phase' BTW, but there is still more.

    I guess that's the only rigid fixie I've ever ridden. And I have to admit, I love 'em.
