Grippy grips

Well my dad gave me one of those $25 american express gift cards that he got from a secret santa thing at his work and i got antoher one from a neighboor for taking care of their pets, so i ordered some stuff online!

I got:
Shook It's on (watched it several times, Brad Simms part is rediculously good. Ice pick up like a huge set of stairs at the end...GOD DAMN.)
and
Duo Cranmer grips.

The grips havent come in yet, but i'm looking foward to them. Maybe i'll even learn fronties when i get them!

Yeah, for some reason I was just looking at those grips... and I wouldn't count on the F-flips... especially out of an abucada.

Haha i think it's abubaca. Anywho, i don't even desire to learn frontflips or backflips.

Premium- i'll let you know how they are once i get them. I just hope they aren't skinny in diameter, cause i hate that.

I have Longnecks right now, and i'll probly get them again if i don't like these Duo grips. Longnecks are the best grips i've had so far. I just wanted to try something new.

Close enough. I'm tired. I would learn backflips after trying them in foam... frontflips I wouldn't try though. I can just see myself casing and landing face first.

backflips are scary even if you are going into foam

Yeah, I'd be scared I wouldn't go forwards and I'd just land on my head.

Longnecks are the only grips worth buying.

I like my Edwins... when I mess them up I might try Longnecks or Rubens.

Next year my two tricks to learn are backflips and 180* barspins, I'm going to try to learn backflips first though.

Nope, i just wanted to try some new grips because my ODI's make my hands all black, even though they are the most comfortable grips ever.

EDIT: The grips just came in and i was really stoked when i saw that Scotty Cranmer had autographed the box. (When i bought them it said that the first 50 boxes would be, but i never thought it would be me!) Anyways, they feel pretty nice, i'm going to put them on tomorrow.

EDIT #2: I put the grips on and did some other work on my bike...here is a pick because i like using my camera, it wasn't blurry on my comp till i resized it, so sorry. Oh and that's not my back wheel, it's a loaner from my freind since my driver blew out. (It's an Odyssey with like 2 or 3 missing spokes, and one rattling around plus a few red ones.

The angle you took that photo at makes it looks like your forks are bent. Also, I fully expect to see some shots of you doing past-clicked x-ups with bars of that size.

Your pedals look pretty haggard by the way.

Sorry for all the insults

I would gladly get you some pictures, but unfortunatley the only good photographer i know just went back to college in Chicago, and all my other riding buddy's/freinds are terrible with timing, so i always get nice turnbar pictures.

Maybe i'll get you a short video clip this weekend since then they can't miss it.

I love my bars. I don't think they are ridiculous. I'm also a pretty big guy. Almost 6 foot and really broad(sp?) shoulders.

I would die with those bars... but that's cool you got Cranmer's signature. I want it.

Try bending your knees when you take a photo of your bike.
