    there might be a nice bike for a great price on boogie hands' porch, depending on how the arguement went.
  6. If she won, you can steal his bike,
    If he won, you can steal his girl......:)

    I'm in Europe though, so skip that shit and leave boogie alone,
    be serious people

    Tesseract, what kinda bike are you looking for...road, mountain or best of both worlds?
  8. My plan is to use it on free time, mostly weekends, take it on the mountain and ride...Athens is an uphill/downhill city with mad drivers and dangerous air pollution...i want a mountain bike..not really hardcore though

    I'd look for a used Gary Fisher. I don't recall Fisher ever putting out a bad hardtail. Component wise, (Shimano) XTR is the best, followed by XT, then LX and after that alivio or something like that.

    Steel bikes are going to have a nicer ride, but aluminum tends to be a bit lighter but is a bit stiffer. Titanium is the complete shit, but its pretty expensive. Check out E-bay and try to get your hands on an old Bontrager. Those bikes are just bad ass. I've seen frames go for around $200 and bikes sometimes go in the $300-400 range. MTBR.com has lots of reviews on bikes and a classified page as well. Check it out and lemme know if you have any questions.

    Surly makes an absolutely bad ass inexpensive flip flop hub. On the European side I believe Planet X is putting out some good inexpensive stuff as well.
  12. Steve, thanx man...good info to start with..i'll check that stuff
    When i get some info on that bike that friend is selling to me for 300$
    i'll email it to you if you dont mind...i hate buying stuff i dunno about.
