Yes, i've very bored. I would ride but I can't. Hurt my leg the other day and I'm taking the day off. If I get really board i'll paint it black. I'm not getting a Jr.T. Almost positive i'm getting the Boxxer Ride.

Yea, you must be really bored.You should really put a dual crown on your haro, maybe it will snap on you and hit you in the head.

I'm not saying it would, but I've seen it happen on low end dual suspension bikes. Why out of curiosity would you want to put a fork on your Haro, when its almost as much as the Haro? I'm not trying to be a dick right now, but economically, that doesnt make much sense. Why not sell your Haro, and save for like a used Bullit or something? It would ride so much better, you wouldnt have to worry about breaking stuff.

Because, like the Haro, a bullit pedals like SH*T. I wanted a entry-mid level bike that could be upgraded. If I wanted a high end bike I would have waited till next summer. Not all of us have money.

Also, it won't break the headtube. If a cased a landing and happened to land in a way that pried the front end away from the rear, yes it probably would snap the headtube. I've seen high end bikes with snapped headtubes. And what if it does break. Oh well. Good reason to buy another bike

I'm trying to see how early I can get out for Mid Semester Break, if it all works out I could very well be heading out to Kelowna or Whistler.

My keyboard did the same thing. Piss me off. It's because I used to eat at the comp. All the keys got sticky. My solution was no food near the comp and a new keyboard.
