We have many, these are just the australian ones, currently I ride the red one.  I pretty much only buy used bikes, usually cheaply since I am just commuting.

I have one like this but blue. Got it at a yard sale for 50 bucks, super fun to ride. I also have a old Huffy (1960 something) made in England and I have a single speed conversion project that I need to finish. Riding bikes is super fun.

It is really fun to ride, I just have to be careful going down hills so I don't peddle to fast and pop the chain (no brakes, it is a coaster brake). I ride it around a lot with my youngest daughter.

Yeah I love bikes. I've got a handful... I commute on a late 1960s Bianchi road bike converted to fixie. My little brother built it and gave it to me when he started training competitively.

I also love antique bikes and have a 1961 Belknap Bluegrass:

A Pre-WWII Western Flyer:

And a 1931 Excelsior. This bike is my favorite. The frame size/geometry is actually from the 1920s and was made to fit 28" thin tires, but  was retrofitted with 26" balloon tires by the vender as those fat tire bikes became all the rage in the 30s. It's known as  a transitional bike.

I rode the shit out of all these bikes and unfortunately wreaked havoc on the rear hubs. :(

Edit: Sorry for the busted photo links. I'll probably just have to post links/not embed the pics.

I usually ride my dads bike, but the other day my mom brought me home this 1937 Schwinn contraption. I was riding it across town and these jock bro's yelled out "NICE BIKE FAG" and I made a sour face inside.

are you sure they weren't skateboarders?

This place made me a bitter old man. I really like your bikes, I have an old Raleigh made Huffy 3 speed that would be right up your alley.

I am wondering why it's okay to ride a fucking bike, but not okay to surf or longboard. I've never seen any surfers destroy granite ledges to the point that they are no longer skateable.

There is a huge difference between me riding my bike to get places and stupid idiots who can't skate riding bikes and destroying skate spots. I also own a Toy Machine long board that I like to ride around.

haha Exactly.  But most skaters ride bikes for transportation.  Not I, simply because a lot of the time while riding my skateboard as transportation I'll pass by a new spot or one that I really want to skate and I can skate it really quick.  On a bike I would just be punching myself in the face for not having my board to immediately shred that spot.

I'm not saying any are bad. I just remember a longboarder here catching a firestorm of SLAP hate, while this thread seems like it's pretty popular. Where is the rationale here?

I like to skate for transportation as well, unfortunately the roads here are so rough in spots that it is impossible to skate with anything other then cruiser wheels. Also if I am riding my bike it is to the store, to the park with my daughter, or with my board on my back to skate.

I have nothing against longboarders. I have a friend who bombs hills on longboards and has hit at least 50 miles perhour. That shit is straight gnar.

This made me think about that episode of South Park where Cartman jumps 50 homeless people on his skateboard.
