how long will it last? trades?

Buddy of mine decided to haul his 20 outtah the rafters after watching me get back into it.

it was pretty screwed so i hit craigslist up locally.

came home last night with a 1998 mosh aluminum racer. looks like it's been ridden twice in its life.

So he's a pretty damn aggresive rider, has broken a couple haro chromo frames in his younger years.

is this thing gonna last more than a couple days jumping off docks and doing 360's?

anyone need a clean old racer that wants to trade for a beefy streeter?

An aluminum frame is not going to hold up to street riding.

You asked how long it would last, and it wouldn't. I answered your question and there was no need for a response such as that.

Since the frame and stuff is aluminum, it won't last long if he's an agressive rider.

S&M Slams from Danscomp. If you spend $10 more you can get pretty much any bars you desire (other than Tree Hot Bars), but Slams are good bars.

Get Slam XLT's then. I think they're a little bit more money, but they're lighter.
