The Lounge / Today i know what a bike is for.

What is a fucking bike for?

Many years date back from the creation of the two wheeled vehicle and half as many years is my birthdate, so today i can finally say i know what a bike is for.

We use these vehicles out of pure passion and incite ourselves to trick our mind that everything will be ok.

Nearly 10 years + of BMX have brought me into pushing my bike ahead of me. I always had to strive to créate something with BMX, my mentality was push it forward without having to chase the massess.

Bmx has given me as many Friends as I have. Bikes have become a trait of my personality and i couldn’t imagine involving myself without the use of one.

It was once a dream of mine to own many bicycles i could use. Luckily life was good with me ahead of time and handed me my weapons of choice.

I came to own these:

•   A Solid Bmx
•   MTB
•   Vintage 700cc

Out of each one i learned one thing, people appreciatte these machines. When i worked at a bike shop once and arrived on my univega racer, my boss was streaked, but not impressed of my abilities. I worked there for 6 months until i was put off for eventually not doing enough work.

I sold this beaute for a spring break roadtrip and I can’t say it wasn’t worth it. But will i ever streak a NOS univega for my own cruising pleasure? Idk.

Every other bike i’v had is rugged, solid parts, primo cranks, heavy rims.

The univega was slick and rugged at the same time with Araya wheels. That bike was ahead of my time, even being an older model.

Today i know what a bike is for, so don’t crash your bikes, bash your bikes or even sell your bikes. Trade them or simply give them away.

Damn nostalgia.

Last pic of my mtb in working mode (actually had a flat for this picture). Had the chain/derraileur/hanger snap off the other day to my luck.

an individual of its own kind. he is a bmxer and he is trying to be something else and people don't like it. not repping animal no more? they don't love you no more?

He is trying so hard to be percieved as an icon and he hasn't reached that status yet. try harder champ. maybe that media influenced bull will help you with your brand at the x games.

Some MTB grips are fucking goofy.

thought the same but for bmx grips, why no lock ons and gloves?

Rides like a bmx? Nope. If you try to make a mountain bike ride like a 20", you just end up with a really crappy feeling MTB.

listen to this guy, he knows whatsup.

just buy anything, the fanciest in your price range. remeber cycling is a sport in which you show off all the fancy parts to the normal people who never really care about the sport so go crazy with your ride or your ego will catch up to you some day.

I'd reccommend something between all mountain/enduro with 27.5 or 29 wheels if you care that much...

i FIND it ridicule that nigel is trying so hard to stand out in a sea of riders, when others are in everyones mouth without even trying it.

take for example dylan lloyd, he's a crazy good kid that represents and rides his ass off, zach gerber, chris kyle and all the other heads that are out there reppin. would you like to see this guys dissapear in the abyss into other things just like many other riders have?

we will have to see how deep nigel takes things, that vice documentary is pretty far i think.

I don't know nigel, i never will but if  had the chance i'd give him props for still standing out there (as a rider). It isn't his fault he was chosen as an icon back in the writing on the wall days. they do treat him as if he was handicapped though. just for being from queens.

he might have a spot light he doesn't deserve and this has people acting out.

No doubt Nigel has basically taken the Edwin style and progressed it significantly, and I respect what he can do on a bike, but the whole attempted celebrity thing is kind of awkward/ cringe-worthy to watch.

he's basically trying to be the edwin delarosa reinassence. Nigel might be trying to cop some of the steez edwin managed to earn back in 2003 whilst wearing dunks and making them ridin worthy and popular. those shits dont grip tho!

on the subject of kink

man they made so much rad shit before i even started riding

though im annoyed at modern kink again now, for reissuing the old solid kink sprocket when they could have re-released the sexdrive sprocket. like wtf kink

I think i remember grabbing a bmx zine and looking at one of those ads and getting the biggest mindfuck ever because i didnt know what they where sellling, i was probably less than 10 years old. thats probably why i got into bmx.

never realized how ground breaking joe tiseo was. feeble hard 180's back in the day was something no one was doing.

so much nostalgia and im happy i always gave kink the respect they deserved. now i'm indiferent of the brand just like anyone else. they are pretty meh.

IMO cult ain't that bad, i actually giggle once i realize everything that stands before the name CULT. They are now well established and might even surrpass fitbikeco's legacy.

TO me the brands have to do a very good job choosing their riders and who they support. Seems to me that some brands do a poor job keeping their riders and making a family instead of just a bike brand.

Can't we all agree we would be stoked to see taj back riding for t-1?

can't even choose a favorite bike brand since they are all massively trendy now a days and i'm too old to keep up with the fads.

Lets just say if i had the opportunity to ride any bike i'd like i would ride a full WTP.

thats a downhill oriented slope style less trails riding and climbing kind of bike. its got a nice price tag but not the nicest. As bink stated, keep up on the look out for bikes.

what style of riding will you be riding with your future mtb?
