Got some new BMX stuff

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Stanley Design, Aug 14, 2003.


  1. Yeah so the blood and sweat of working all summer i bought a sock FULL of bike stuff haha. actually I bought a new frame,

    Solid - Killing Machine(600 dollars), its one of the strongest made and is so awesome, it has a cross engraved in the gusset.

    Macniel Miron forks ($221) I was gonna go with odyssey thermals but they didnt have any.

    FIT sprocket ($88) nice and beefy and probaly the best one made. pretty;)

    Regular 14t freewheel to fit my sprocket ($60)

    Snafu grips with barends ($30)

    odyssey moduelever for my brake ($30)

    primo super-tenderizer pedals ($65)

    shadow conspiracy pegs (got a steal of a deal for 30 bucks)

    so in total I just spent a total of...2000 and some dollars on my bike. wow-ness, its pretty pimped out now though.
     
  2. by the way if ANYONE is interested in this at all ill post pics, but i doubt anyone will lol
     
  3. Post pics dude...

    personally,I'd never pay $2000 for a bike...even if Britney Spears rode it naked...

    Well,maybe I'd buy the seat,but...

    :D

    Have fun with it,and be sure to lock it up man.

  4. well its not exactly a complete bike, i just bought stuff to replace my old stuff, still got my old wheels and seat and handlebars and seatpost and clamp, cranks, stem etc etc, ill have to find my digi cam, its around here somewhere, ill ask my dad where it is next time i talk to him haha.

    (and by the way i keep it in my room every night hanging on the wall, no crook will steal it with me sleeping next to it;) )
     
  5. oh :(


    I haven't rode a bike ina while.

    my friend got his bike stolen around here,and he was even on it.

    they asked to see his bike,and took off.

    Is there any market for old bmx bikes? I still have my GT race bike from the early-mid eighties and want to get rid of it.
     
  8. I got a new bike recently too, although it isn't bmx (it's a mountain bike) it is pretty sweet. I got a 2002 Kona Cinder Cone. It is pretty much stock but i had the shop do a couple of upgrades to make it more of a 2003 spec. bike. the upgrades include:

    -shimano deore XT rear deraileur
    -new Mavic x139 disc wheelset with shimano disc hubs
    -shimano machanical disc brakes (front and rear)
    -2003 marzocci bomber EXR comp air fork w/80mm travel.
     
  9. goodwill or salvation army. or the kid down your block
     
  10. I used to BMX, but I got too big to do it anymore.

    I just had a stock diamondbak skindog. Solid as hell. I kinda miss it.
