So my brakes are getting installed tommorow morning and since I go to school I dropped it off today around 4. Then I got home and it started to rain...

So. No Bike = Bored
Bored + Rain = SUPER BORED
SUPER BOARD + Legos =

The suspension works and the chain (rubber band) drives the rear wheel.

Excellent! Now, what are the 'brand name' and 'model number/name'?

I have some Evil/e.Thirteen stickers I could slap on there... I haven't really thought of a name.

Yup, I got it in like 7th grade. When I moved into my new room found it under my bed and its been sitting on my desk for weeks so I decided to crack it open and you know the rest.

To bad my bike needs a few adjustments. It's kinda like my Haro except with a double crown. (When you land to had the headtube snaps.) I've done it like 7 times so I made a mod and now its easy to put back together. If I get bored again i'll reinforce the headtube.

Sorry to hear about your bike. Think you can fit on a 8" bike?

Dude, back in my elementary days, I made YACTHS out of Legos. I really wish I still had all of my legos, it was actually a lot of fun to be that creative.

I have THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of Legos. Some are from when my dad was a kid. He built some crazy good things from legos. LIke 5 years ago me and him built a mansion. Three stories, pool, the works. It took us so long.

Hell yeah, I'll get on that beast, it will be like Krusty the Clown on the simpsons, I'll even do a little loop for you.

The bike I'm most likely to get is a 2005 Giant DH Comp, I would get an 04 but for some reason one shop is selling the 05 cheaper than I could get an 04 for. And it's all legal

I sure hope to go riding today. The LBS said my '05 Kona Kula just arrived! They should have it built up by the end of the day. I haven't been able to ride for awhile because my other bike is waiting for some parts.

It's not sarcasm at all, Fox Rider. Sarcasm is mean and caustic. I offered a little joke, a bit of humor for a smile, or a chuckle or two; all in fun. Hoped the little rolling head dude would offer the clue. I'm well aware of both the USS Constititution and the US Constitution. Just a little chuckle in an otherwise frequently too tense world. Something Adam Sandler might say in one of his silly movies; all in fun. It was not meant to denigrate the famous ship, our Constitution, or your Lego project; just to bring about a little laughter.

My bad, i'm REALLY tired and all laughed out. I spent the night at a friend with a bunch of kids and didn't stop laughing the whole time...Ping Pong somehow ammused us for 7 straight hours...
