Good starting point

I've been out of the game for a while, a buddy of mine has a '04 Mosh Brass Star 2 frame and i was wondering if it would be a decent frame to build up, i could probably get the from for around $30. Didn't want to spend 250-300 on a frame if this one will work just fine. I mean all the other parts will be bought over time, new rims, forks, bards, crank, all that good stuff, thanks

thanks, for the replies, yeah i'm no lightweight either, weight about 230, and only 5'5" and no i don't look like a sumo wrestling midget. The urge is killing me to ride, i was getting ready to get a bike back together then broke my arm and now everyone is back into riding a lot. So i cannot wait.

Broken bones suck. Atleast you only broke your arm- you could still walk.

Yeah, that's about as long as I will be out. I'm sure people who have been on this forum for a while have gotten tired of me saying this, but I completely destroyed my leg. I broke my tibia, fibula, and tri-plane... or something like that. I broke my leg in 3 spots... that hurt like a mother.

lol that's nice.. and it's healing okay I guess.. I have to go back in about a week and see how much it has healed. The bad thing was that he had to rebreak it like a month ago, so that backed up my healing a bit. But I went last week and it had just started healing. I won't be getting my cast off for a long long long time... like 3 or 4 months.

Oh well, thank god i'm getting back into it, actually going to by the frame and the crank and pedals, gettin a good deal do. Nice to have good friends that will cut you deals and

Yeah your physical therapy was probably worse than mine is going to be because yours was like all muscle. Luckily for me, my legs aren't very strong at all, so I probably wouldn't even notice that much of difference... for some reason I have a very strong upper body, but a weak lower body... I can bench a lot more than I can leg press.

Yeah I'm 5'5" 125 and I can bench 160-170 but only leg press like 120-130 (when I had the use of my other leg)... I didn't like working out my legs that much. And thank you, I need it. I need it to heal and then rehab it fast so I can still play baseball this year.
