    i just now got back into it yesterday after my last bike got stolen 6 months ago and i finally bought a new bike. brand new DK Siklon. Got it took off all the reflectors, guards etc. then went to Florence Kentucky to a place called ollies and it was sick. tonight i changed the stem to a front load eastern stem and cut the seat post down for about another pound of weight savings

    here it is when i first got it:

    I used to race back in middle school/high school until I was Expert, then I got into dirt jumping as I didn't renew my ABA membership when I went to college.

    I had a S&M. Grabber green frame and powdered coated black parts. Profile SS crank. 1/2" axles. Triple wall wheels. S&M slam bars. Redneck headset. The whole nine. I ended up selling it on craigslist after I realized another fall will put me out of work. So 500 later, I walked away from the sport.



    Recently I got into road biking. It's a bit more work, but pretty relaxing.

    I ride when I can. Got a Redline Single X with some misc shit on it. Started building a Fit Hawk frame up, but I took a pay cut and now its the holidays lol. Got the frame, Shadow 11B bars, Shadow Creeper Q26 forks, Profile BMX cranks, Demolition U brakes (the new ones with the bearings in the arms, cant member the model), Demolition grips, Shadow Interloc chain, and other lil things. Biggest hold up is the wheel set. Im gunna run some Profile low flange hubs, so Im lookin at over 400 bucks in parts, then I gotta pay someone to lace em up lol.

    I used to have a Free Agent, don't remember the model but it was the stupid heavy overbuilt dirt jumping setup, mobbing that bitch around kept me from gaining weight through middle school and early high school

    I used to do BMX racing, but these days I mostly do mountain biking or downhill free riding, bit more fun IMO.

    Then I got into dirt jumping a Haro Supra back in the day. My brother thought it would be cool to ghost jump it into a creek repeatedly. I'ts been torn down in a box ever since.

    Nah, my dumbass little brother spray painted the frame, turned it into a flatland bike with pegs all over it, and zip tied the seat to the frame so he'd have better clearance pulling mad tight stalls. Then he left it in front of a friends house, and it got stolen. :(

    Grossssss, that blows man.

    I remember those haro supra's. Super sick. At the time I got a TJ lavin edition fat boy. Worst bike ever, but thought it was the bee's knees.





    I still have a 1991 mach one in decent shape. I raced it for a season once and kept it stock. I pulled in more trophies with that than on all my other bikes combined.
