i got a large-ish mountain bike a few  years ago for $10 at a charity garage sale.  had it all tuned up for $40 at a local bike clinic.  its got a big basket on the back which makes it hard to get on and off sometimes, but its nice to ride over to home depot or the grocery store at 10pm to buy some stuff and then cruise home...   ill try to post a pic later.

oh yeah, i bought my girl a bike at the same sale!  its an all black bmx / mountain bike, and it has an indy cross on the front and a big "mystery" sticker on the frame!  she looks rad on it, i should get her some streamers or something

ride one of these two to work everyday. I also have an amazing Schiwnn Le Tour 10-speed for longer rides. I love riding bikes.

that top one looks sick. i have an orange spitfire sticker in the same spot on my bike.

Who doesn't have a spitfire sticker on their bike? I think I complained about that in my rant too originally, something about a spitfire sticker there and an antihero eagle on the frame but cut it out. I think I compared it to fucking another girl while telling her how much you love your girlfriend.
Gipper I love ya man, but I disagree with you 100%. If I want to skate I will go skate, when I lived in SF I skated every and use to go to the store etc... here in Portland a lot of the streets and sidewalks are rough as fuck and worthless for skating on, I would rather ride my bike to the store then walk holding my board.
I like riding my bike and I like skating, I don't care if that makes me uncool.
Lets say 50% then. You disagree with me that biking is lame. But you do agree that where I live, its not too off base to just ride a board and nothing else, right? I did point out when Grim said something that it may have a lot to do with where I live- a skateboard works as well and is more fun, given the amount of stupid little spots that you would never stop to session, drive, or ride a bike to, but can be cruised through. Shit, I got a lot of routes that I created specifically because of the spots, I'd feel like an idiot bike riding past them.
The hipster shit is not why I think bikes are dumb. I see too many kids cutting out on skating to go ride bikes and shit, and it just annoys me, and I don't understand it, which probably annoys me even more. 
Maybe my perspective caused me to be a little harsh on the bikers here. As long as you don't tell your friends that you can't go skate because you are going on a bike ride (unless its a bike ride with a girl- that's cool) its all good I guess. I'd still rather have a cruiser set up than a bike. I guess biking to a skatespot is at least getting you to a skatespot, though I'd be embarassed to do it

were not all privileged enough to live in san francisco were you can skate everywhere. well, i guess we could all move, a 2009 population census for SF should be 6.68 billion right?

I have a 26" BMX cruiser, pretty fun for just rolling around town.
I haven't been on it much since I bought my last moped, though.

Yeah if you live in SF it is easy to get everywhere skating and the bus. I wish it was so here, I can do here but it is a lot harder and takes a lot more time.

HOw is living here some sort of privilege? I wasn't born or raised here. I moved my ass out here when I was 18 because I knew what I wanted. And SF definitely is not for everybody. Fun as fuck to skate, but its generally a struggle to get by with the cost of living. If you don't mind living frugally and you skate, fuckin' come on down man!
And I wasn't saying "haha! I don't need a bike and you do!" It was more "nobody needs a bike! Wait what? Some people need a bike? Oh, ok, I guess I have a weird perspective on things."

The only time I notice your posts are when you pile on to talk shit. You are worthless. You are never even the first to talk shit, you just see somebody else say something and decide to jump on to be cool. Unfortunately, you still have no personality at all.
Just because you felt like piling on, I'm going to rant about bikes sucking more, despite saying I wouldn't in earlier posts.
I was hyped to see that bitch ass "critical mass" motherfucker get his from the NYPD. Critical mass is some douchebag shit where people get together once a month to show how badass they are for riding a bike. Its like one long bicycle beauty pagent, with a bunch of losers dressed in stupid hats with short brims and tight pants rolled up to their knees. They all think that they are saving the world. Once, in SF, the critical mass people surrounded a minivan with kids in it and started smashing it with their bikes. Here is a link to the story: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/04/04/BAGLRP2LEI8.DTL. Cute huh? fuck bikers. It's not just a lame culture, its a culture of violent and arrogant people who feel that they should be vigilantes and punish little kids from out of town for riding in their mom's van. Fuck bikers hard.
Alright, that's all for now.

That asshole cop is one of my best friends cousin by marriage. I love Critical Mass, I use to skate along sometimes when I worked down town SF. And fuck that women, she gunned it into a crowd and hit a biker, what did she expect to happen, they would give her flowers? What would you do if you and a bunch of guys where skating down the street and someone hit you because they where impatient?

i know youve got coaster brakes on both of those bikes, but riding those things clipless is still pretty gnarly.
i wouldnt feel safe hauling ass without being strapped in.
what is the brand of the bike in the second pic?
and whats the deal with the chainring on it? do you have any idea what the ratio is? is it from a road bike cassette?

i find it ridiculous that so many of you are so worried about what some fucking douchebag on slap is going to think of you riding a bike. or even having basic knowledge of a bike, fixed gears in particular.
i dont care where you live, if youd rather wear your wheels or tail down to nothing skating around town when you could ride a bike and get there twice as fast without the hassle just because youre such a "skater to the marrow of my bones" then youre also a fucking idiot.
work smart, not hard.

i love biking yo. bombing around drunk and whatnot. cruising around and shit. at this point in my life i find it a lot more fun than skateboarding.

this is my bar cruiser/trash bike. i don't give a shit about it so i get reckless wid it. whip it real hard whip it whip it etc. etc.


this is my legit bike u kno, the one i ride on everyday. my mature bike.


i also got a diamond back sorrento mountain bike that i'm trying to sell and i got this gary fisher frame for free, so i'm planning on turning that into a one speed cruiser type jawn.

gipper i have an anti hero sticker on my bike, and i even ride with my board in my bag! i also have a muskabeatz sticker on there too. anyways, i traded my buddy colin a dinosaur jr. longboard setup for this thing. i think he paid over $400 for it. i usually ride it to work since i leave my house anywhere between ten-fifteen minutes before i'm supposed to open up and there's no way i'd be able to skate that distance uphill in that time

Yeah, except nobody could find the person who supposedly got hit by the lady in the van, and there was no bike that got crushed that could ever be produced. Basically a huge group of mob thinking people went crazy on a lady for driving her kids in a gas-guzzler on their route, and when they got busted, they made up a story, but there has never been any physical evidence produced to show that the lady hit anybody.

Whatever though, keep riding your bike instead of skating. I actually remember that I got rid of the last bike I had because it was collecting dust, I thought it would be convenient, but always skated instead. You guys feel free skate nerding it up,watch a couple of skate videos, get critical about who skates what spot with what style, and then go on a bike ride... dorks.

Nah, nothing wrong with that. I already said that. But you don't need to make a thread about it. I've never made a BART thread, like "dude, riding on a train under the San Francisco bay is sooooo cool. Let's all talk about how rad public transit is and post up pictures of the trains we ride."
Also, I did drop it, and actually said some nice things about bikes, but then after the fact Foray told me to shut the fuck up, so I started posting on it again, just to piss him off.

I bought a bike off a crackhead last night for $10. I felt so bad about the karma attached with it, that I sold it for $18 later on to a friend.

Then, we did dial a bottle and drank till sunrise.
