      Damn you guys! because of THIS thread, I'm in the dog house!
      Well I've been surfing BMXMuseum.com a lot and well, looking through KSL and craigslist to find an old bike.
      So I bought this:

      I bought the white tires and Redline bars yester day. It is so rad.
      My wife is not too thrilled about my new/old hobby.
      Do a good turn daily.

      When I was like 16 (im only 19) I bought a specialized bike and put it all together but never got good at anything at all. I can not do anything worth ****. Somebody should show me the ropes maybe put my bike to good use for once.

      good find

      i just put together my new (well, new to me anyway) terrible one barcode on saturday i friggin LOVE this thing!!! the seat & seatpost is still in the mail (the post off my vegas was 29.2mm, the T1 is 25.4mm), but there was no way i was going to wait to ride my bike, so after looking around the house, i found out that my 5yo's tonka bike has a 25.4 seatpost, soooo....now i have a tonka seat on my bike for a few days & thanks to scott, i have a seat post clamp, too no brakes yet, though, the guy i got the frame from had cut the brake mounts off, so i'm brakeless until i can get some new mounts & either weld them on, or make them removable. funny thing is, i'm kinda liking running brakeless :crazy: but for riding trails i want them, & i ride street just about every night, & i don't really want to get hit by a car....

      the T1 before i got the new whip:

      the new whip:
      wethepeople omen, swiped some parts off the T1 for it. i'm still not sure if i'll use the WTP or go back to the T1 frame...the wtp is nice, but the T1 is shorter & way easier for manuals...but the wtp has brake mounts...so many choices...

      Sup All, I just moved to SLC and am looking for a street bike. I used to ride some flatland back in the day but sold my bike to help me buy my first real car. Anyone got a 21' frame or whole bike they want to come off of for some cash? I'm really looking for a Standard STA but no one stocks it and theres a 4 week turn around time from Standard if I order one; but something kink, or S&M would do. Also are there any bike shops in the area that deal in 20' bikes? I checked out SLC bike co and a place called contenders with no success; and i'm trying to avoid Danscomp if i can. Thanks

      I have a dumb question for you guys- why on a BMX/freestyle bike is the seat always pointed up in front? I haven't ridden one since... 1990? My 2nd bike was some old toy store BMX and then in my early teens I graduated to mtn bikes and never looked back. Briar & I ride every single weekend up in Brian Head if any of you guys ever make it to that area and want to ride some wild stuff.
      Edit- my current rides:

    28. 09-22-2009 03:20 PM #98
      Andrew I think but im not sure . the reason for the seat pointing up is more for control than looks . this is my guess im not a freestyle guy so i wouldnt take that to the bank .

      There are a couple bikes in Salt Lake that have some bmx stuff. Taylor's bike shop in Taylorsville and Hyland Schwinn on Highland and 3000 south (approx.) but if you want the shiz spot for bmx, go to 5050 BMX in Layton. Just look them up in on the web. Rider owned.
      They are way into freestyle while Performance is more of a racing oriented shop. Performance has a trailer at all the Rad Canyon races.
      For race info check out utahbmx.com

      Hey Alex, still have my cd's? This is my first time on here in like a year and a half.

      This alows the back of the seat to be as low as possible to make sure it is out of the way for tailwhips/other tricks. Same reason the seat sits so low in the frame/top tube and seat stays are getting closer and closer to parallel (and to reduce weight)
