Atomic alabi is a sweet deck, but you should consider something else for bindings. I'd look at rome 390's or ride spi's. I've got K2 forumulas and I love them, those are a good choice too, and all those are around the same price. I'm getting new boots this season, either Vans encores, or 32 nui boas.

didn't want to start a new thread.

i think i've decided that i can't get into bmxing. between snowboarding and regular mtn biking, i don't have time for it, nor do i have space in my apartment.

can you guys tell me what a fair price to ask for it on craigslist is? i have NO CLUE what to even start the ad price at. i see bikes for 100 bucks that are from 1990's, but those are big brands like GT. and of course i see bikes for 100 bucks that are definitely overpriced because they look like they're from the 80's.

thanks,

i've ridden it once from the gas station where i pumped up the tires. that's it. the tires still have the little rubber pieces that stick out.

thanks for the advice.

i was walking by a store one day and they were having this rockstar games tournament. it was for the new xbox game "table tennis". they only had like 9 people in the tournament and the guy asked me if i'd like to sign up. i had mad time to kill and i saw the bike, so i decided what the hell.

i've never owned an xbox nor played the game, and the people who were playing looked hardcore. i was scurred, since i only play pc games (cs).

but, i ended up winning. i guess they were really bad.

So true. Face it, the bike is a pile of crap that just so happens to roll... for the time being.

Great choices on the board gear. What size is your alibi, and what's your hieght, and weight if you don't mind me asking.
