Hey, do you guys sell a fair amount of bmx stuff at C.S.? I've been sending all my mountain/bmx inquiries your way but I suppose I should see if you actually sell anything.
Yea we have a good selection, we dont stock tons of bmx wheelsets 'cause the demand isn't to high.

Anything you want we can order fo sho. Got lots of sweet pegs, cranksets, brakes, bmx cables etc..

MTB stock is through the roof, we gots everythang.

Kai, definitely let us know about BMX stock. I need to build up the Raleigh 20 frame I have on my kitchen floor.
The steepness of the head tube makes the ride really responsive, which I am used to from riding my road bike.

It also make the bike feel realy stable and keeps the front wheel straight.

When I'm riding with no hands and try weaving the bike back and forth sharply the wheel returns to the center very quickly like it's magnetized.

So much funnnnnn.


Don't call me Kai please lol, used to know a guy named Kai...

Kaibot, Kaiser, Kaiserbot or Chris please

I know not everyone is flush but every little bit helps. I dropped $100 bones each, mostly cause eyefloater promised to clean my Ciocc with a toothbrush for a month, but I challenge everyone here to drop $20 or more on these guys. Split it between them or just empty your pockets and give what you can. Even the price of a beer will help, like you really need it you chubby walrus. Apart from being able to hold it over their heads for the rest of their lives, you're supporting a good cause. Chances are someone you know or you yourself may be influenced by the effects of this deadly disease.

So pony up, buttercup. For the half the price of a new jersey, a couple of beers, or a massage (sans happy ending) from operator, you can make a difference, feel good about yourself, and know these boys are going to earn every red cent as they gftg.

Do it. You know you want to...
Well said. Let me do some digging!

Hello,

today, Saturday June 17th, there are a bunch of street sales in my neighborhood.

I live in the upper beaches area at 33 Swanwick Ave., which is just off Main St. one street south of Gerard.

I am selling tons of stuff, nothing bike related but I'm sure other people will be.

The sale officially starts at 9 a.m., but will run till the late afternoon I'm sure.

Come take a look at the **** people are selling if you have nothing better to do, and bring me a cold beverage.

We pretty much emptied out our basement, which was full of 20+ years of treasures.

I hope we can sell most of it.

Alright, as I sit here psyching myself up for this I realize that I'm probably the only one from our little group heading out to this race. Am I going to have a racing partner out there or are you all going to leave me hanging?

PS. Being there to take snapshots does not ****ing count.

"Get ready to PUSH IT DUDE!" That's what I'll be yelling from the sidelines.

Just don't unclip again.

I may come out but I'm really hot asnd tired because they started doing renovation next door at [b]7AM[b] this morning! and someone had stupidly turned the furnace on full so all our rads were just pumping out heat into the heat until I noticed they were running and turned off the tstat... I'll tell you for sure in an hour I guess as I haven't really eaten yet either...

So I ended up drinking 5 beers instead... Looks like you're going to have to do this one solo for the team Mike. Good luck and don't take too many chances!
