the new wombolts arent too bad. i guess they updated a bunch of things like the cluster nut.

and all we have near my house is this tiny little outdoor skatepark. basically consists of a 4 ft quarter, a little euro gap, and a 6ft quarter right next to a 4ft speed ramp. and then theres a random rail out in the middle of nowhere. its sad, but they let me in so its cool.

why do you cops not want bmxers at skateparks?

FuzzyRyder 07-23-08 04:13 PM

Cause they are gay.

You can solve the skatepark problem by going when they aren't around, what do you think people would do in a town with like 4 skateparks that don't allow bmxers in do?

I'm selling my Haro Zippo if anything

Heh, Dev, how old is that bike? My friend garbagepicked an old Dyno, and that's one of the only other times I've seen a bike w/ a surfer bar and a seat up that high.

Anyways... My cousin was riding my crappy Diamondback Viper X (Only costed around $200, I use it on the rare occasion I decide to ride the local trails, since my other bike weighs more than my car) at a Labor Day party and ended up bending the chainwheel. Would it be worth it to get a decent crank, or should I just go back to the store I bought it at and get the same crank/chainwheel the bike originally came with?

Im looking to buy a new bike, havent ridden in a few years and want to get back into it. and Im on a limited budget (college student with part time job...)lookin to spend like 250-350(max). Been looking at DK 6 Pack and Haro Forum Intro lite. Dont have the money to build my own at the moment sadly, but any ideas?

minichamp31 09-12-08 10:15 PM

Get the 6-Pack. Or look at a Stolen Wrap.

Thanks for the suggestions. Why exactly would you choose the wrap over the 6pack? or what about a kink whip?

Why would you personally choose the kink whip over the the dk six pack and stolen wrap?

FuzzyRyder 09-13-08 05:40 PM

dont get the kink, the frame isnt full chromoly and its more then both the 6 - pack and wrap which are both solid bikes, choose either and you'll be happy.

Street rider 09-13-08 06:03 PM

oops. i was thinkin of the wrong kink. get the wrap

What all is necessary to assemble if you order a complete bike from danscomp?

Hey guys, I've been looking at BMX for a while now, and was interested in getting into it.
I'm about 6' tall and about 180-185 lbs. I was looking for a good beginner bike, preferably all chromo.

Here are some that I found around my area and was wondering whether it would be a good deal.

If you are feeling extra nice, maybe you could check out the entire page for me?:thumb:

Thanks guys!

P.S. I made a new thread, but thought it was ok to post her too. Sorry about that.

this question was asked a while back, and i needed to know the answer cause my brother is gonna get a bike from dans soon. its all simple stuff. like the pedals, the bars, pegs, and i think the brakes too (if it even comes with brakes)

Robolove 09-22-08 12:57 PM

all right, thanks alot for the info on assembly! I should be able to get all that done easily enough, may need some help with the brakes but there is a bike shop near by that I can ride to.
