also, take pics drive side out and if you're putting your bar tape on from the tops to drops, use the bar plug to stop the bar tape rather than using electrical tape. your bike looks like you spent alot of time to look "right" -- these things really detract from that look.
I love mountain bikes! LOVE THEM. I'm going to read the posts then come back your way with some questions OP, haven't ridden in 8 years, want to get back into nearly bought a $3,000 bike a few months ago, then hesitated and got indecisive. Nearly pulled the trigger on a $700 bike just to get my toes wet again, but I'm still bikeless.
you obviously don't ride because you don't see the functional issues at hand with the bike. the saddle & short stem are huge red flags.
the aesthetic issues are just that. aesthetics but again, if you're spending a ton of time color coordinating your bike, you might as well do everything right. the two points are easily fixed and will make the bike look a million times better.
I've been riding this Wal-Mart cruiser for three years now and it has done perfectly fine. Don't drive, so I either ride her or walk most places.
Op here. Before I joined team Giant I had a schwinn ranger from target. It was a little heavy but I didn't know any better was a good bike. She's my guest bike now.
Captcha bicycles. ..
yes it is a Haro. It has some of the aesthetics of a BMX bike with the short straight handle bars and the fatter tires. I have great control around sharp turns and the fatter tires and increased handling allow for a comfortable dirt and gravel trail ride. this baby can go anywhere no problem
I personally hate speed bikes, because I suck at adjusting those things to where I need it at. While in Hilton Head on vacation though I rode a Fuji beach cruiser. I was able to go up hill, carrying a child's cart, with absolute ease. Wish I could find and afford that ride. It was beautiful.
pic was when i just picked it up (even with the reflectors).
I bought it new from a local bike shop on sale for 400. It was originally close to 600. I would suggest investing in a hybrid bike. It has the frame of a road bike but with the ability of customization to better suit the rider. I could easily change out my handlebars for some drop bars but i prefer the feel of the short straight ones. Shop around and see what fits
pleb travel for suckeroonis imo but that does look like a nice plebmobile
as if id deteriorate my beautiful custom hand made coke board with a useless 10 cent sticker.
This is mine Trek a Gary Fisher, American bike ;)
I changed the bars and saddles love my bike but would be happy to get a road bike
You seriously ride that fucking coke bottle around?
God damn op a look 695 I am impressed
don't mind me just passing through
paid way too much money for this last year but I rode the hell out of it.. might get some kind of road bike soon
>coolest method of travel ever
I wouldn't really say that. How's picking it up and turning it every time you go around corners. I would sooner ride a wheelchair that be seen on that thing.
noice, but bro you should upgrade to a quartz nail homie its worth it
I've been wanting to try dabbing for a while but dont wanna fry myself retarded. Pic related is my small beaker bong
This is my main ride. Nothing crazy but it works and it works well.
do yourself a favor and do it, you deserve it anon i bet you work you ass off, you deserve to taste your dabs bro
And what's the cost like? And what amount is good? I don't know much about this scene.
thanks, i try to inspire others to start their own nice collections, old pic is old but yeah, once you get your first real heady piece youll never wanna stop collecting em
Op here. Post pics of your drugs.
My wax,weed,kratom,addy,Vyvanse, and Modvigil.
I have this very bike. just picture it. banged up, dirty and used
Just bought my first non walmart bike picking it up tomorrow. Did i do good?
This and some other stuff. But weed is all I need man. Sometimes I'll pop a couple bars, but nothing to crazy.
If anything, upgrade? Has anyone ever rode while high?
Bikes are for fags
So kind of like an unwinding? That sounds awesome! But to each their own. I like the intense, chill feeling from bars and weed combo. Take the edge right off and I coast away.
I carry two locks. People are assholes. I kryptonite my back tire and frame and cable lock the front to frame and whatever else I can. Sad reality is all locks are easily defeated, so I just make the guy want to steal bike next to mine because it's easier. Bike thieves are the worst.

This is how it look the first time i got it

I don't get this. Gearsets are pretty reliable these days and all do the job as long as you buy a good brand. And how hard is it to figure out which gear suits you in that moment?
Yes, but it only has one bike video on it.
This is when, I put the spring forks. But after a wile i toke the spring off and made it the front wheel exted out more.
What's with all these ugly ass American bikes?
>pic, git gud and get a Dutch bike.
drunk af atm but yeee
Frame from the trash. Made the green wheels.
These cranks are nice, not expensive, but you will only find them on expensive bikes.
v-brake - no trouble with disk shit.
mfw lady gets mad at me for no reason
i feel bad for cyclists that can't warp away from the situation
there ya go
Women drivers are the worst. Their poor driving skills multiplied by the the sense of invincibility their car gives them makes them dangerous. Add that to the fact that they don't face any real danger of road rage. If a man behaved the way some women do behind the wheel they would be pulled from their car and beat. Prove me w r ong.
Bicycles are too gay. Get a motorcycle!
I have posted mine already... I am not a fan of Carbon fibre bikes. They seem toy like...
A decent and modern steel (yes they are still made) or titanium frame are so much better. Try one, you will not be disappointed.
(Oh, and I am not talking about those fixed gear faggots and their steel is real bullshit)
Not that anon, but I got a cool story
>smoking with friend who is relatively new to smoking
>i've been smoking on and off for 2 years prior to this
>give friend a hit
>20 minutes later
>he's greened out on my bed
>tell him we'll have to ride bikes soon because the landlord is coming to fix something in the apartment in a bit
>takes this guy like 30 minutes to finally stand
>he pukes out my window
>feel bad but cant have him at my house
>we finally make it out of the apartment
>he's riding with his face in his handlebars
>i tell him I'll bring him back to his house
>he falls off his bike a few times on the way back I don't know why
>he tells me he needs to sit down
>we go to a school yard where there's a bench he can sit on
>he passes out on the bench
>leave him there because I'm sick of waiting (yes i know im a shit friend)
>go home, get landlord to fix what was broken
>smoke later with this guy and tell him sorry for leaving him there
Saw another Ducati fag here. My bike at the moment, going to be buying a mountain bike soon though.
giant defy 2014 got stolen so got the 2016 now
fuck pedestrians and fuck cars
He was taking too fucking long and I was getting bored lol, his house is a 10 minute ride away from mine and I think we were riding around for like an hour just trying to get to his house.
i want to get disk brakes for it. i used a bike with disks on a bike ride. loved it.
im to poor for a cannondale. or any really good bike for that matter. im hoping the person that gave me the trek. will leave me his bikes when he croaks.
What do you drive then Internet tough guy? Why is your minor inconvenience by cyclists relevant? Why are you in my bike thread?
I'm looking to add a motor, thinking about 60cc 4 stroke but I can't find any online in Europe right now and the shipping from the US is killer; Anyone got a link to a cheap/good engine or advice on what to get?
First real mountain bike in the thread.

Picture of my bike before I painted it all flat black. Put so many KM on this baby.
Thats my bike but the picture isnt oc
Reba better fits the terrain I normally ride. I looked at the Revolution but decided the Reba was a better fit for me. That bike is just about 24lbs so I wanted to keep it light too. The Revolution is bit heavier
You got an aly from to 24lbs? Good job!
I'm running a ti frame, and mine weighs in at about ~28lbs. It's hardly built for weight though, I just like the titanium flex due to me hating soft-tails.
Lots of good parts! Plus my current fork and the Reba are 32mil stanchions 120mm travel. I don't need the big stanchions here. 36 is fat as fuck! Wish I had big enough stuff to need that fork.
Got one like this 20 years ago. if you spent $300 at Home Quarters stores they gave you the bike free. I've beat the crap out of this thing and it's still going strong.
