i got scars for sure...the worst, i think, was when my wrists swelled up 2 times their regular size and i was going in and out of consceiness for a while...it sucked...i ended up with about my 10th concussion from that...all from nose-diving this double...it's cool though, they way it feels like you are flowing...it's awesome

I ride... I am putting together an S&M Holmes because my beautiful and much loved Hoffman Taj has cracked. I've had it for almost 5 years too. :(

 

I ride street. Ramp's here and there, get down with the mini ever now and then too.

just for the sake of posterity ill post here.

 

FBM angel of death grey

all black shit and aint nobody fuckin with my primo powerbites because ill fuck you up they ARE the fuckin illest.

 

ill probably post some shit here when my new photos get back from the lab.....or when i get money to get them. the new fisheye should be spiffy.

 

battlescars? well other than the usual cuts and crap, my right hand has been broken 6 times (a few non riding related) and now this one bone breaks pretty easy, like jumps out of this small bone that i guess is worn out from being fucked up so much, that and i got like 4 concussions.

 

oh yeah, if anyone wants to donate a rear wheel to the "tyler durden is poor and needs a rear wheel fund" itd be much appreciated, my boss got evicted from our nice big store because the asshole real estate guy found out about our ramps, so now were in the process of moving, but hes not opening again till march, which means i have no job till then plus i am in debt as it is because i didnt exactly have money for my new frame and now my rear wheel is destroyed....fucking totalled and its really pissing me off that i cant ride, but itd be worse if it was summer i guess. whatever, expect pics later if i can get em.

I ride an Eastern Hercules right now....but soon to be a Mutiny Punisher. I also ride the Powerbite cranks with Tenderizer pedals. Smooth like butta. Everything else is black except my alex triple wall rims....I primarily ride street, but I play around on dirt. My bike is set up to take the abuse so its kinda heavy for trails.

 

The weirdest battle scar I guess I have other than the normal scars and stuff would be.....screwing up my right ankle and I now have a small calcium deposit on my bone...its just like this nickel sized lump on the inside of my ankle. My knees are shot to hell as well, along with the ankles and wrists...ah well, I love to ride so I'll get over it.

damn...i am surpised by the amounts of response i got already, i didnt think many people did it here...

 

powerbites, in my mind, are definitely the best cranks, and dont get me started on how awesome super tenderizers are...

 

martyr, my friend has a mutiny soldier...it's pretty nice, he's in love with it

I rode no brakes for a long ass time. Mainly due to the fact I couldn't get my 990s to work, so I said fuck it and took them off. Brakeless is gnarly, I love it except wearing out your shoes. Plus I like doing tire stalls. Extremely hard without brakes. Now I have Evolvers.....those are the shit, easy to set up and hold good.

I ride brakelss..four pegs too. I've been doing the brakless thing for about 4 years, and it wasn't because of Troy McMurray or anyone like that...

I can not ride a dialed bike. I need my headset to be loose and some teeth missing on my sprocket.

 

I'm in CT and am down for a NY street session when it get's warmer.

 

Drop me a line AIM: Time Tells Me

 

 

I used to be able to tell you the price and spek's of any part, I'd read Ride front and back 5 times over in one day. Then all my bmx crew quit riding or moved, so I was left alone. I dropped the subscriptions and hardly ever look in a magazine, let alone buy one.

 

I even submitted writings to Ride...and they published one. I think I should get to college and learn to write better and move to Cali.

 

It's kind of nice not knowing what is going on in the rest of the BMX world and just going out for a good session without caring or knowing if you have the coolest parts or whatever.
