a long weekend, sold after I got back from Spain
shortest time you have owned a bike?
Hora to the forum please.
Funnily enough, mine was Hora's old Heckler. Last 1 ride around here which was just a 30 minute bedding in red and then a ride in the Moors after which it was sold. Hated it...
6 years and counting!!!!
Cotic Roadrat, bought the frame, God knows why except that I absolutely love my Soul. Rode it a couple of times and hated it, had it stripped and sold on within a week.
the real deal breaker was the rear dropout arrangement: Fit a rack and mudguards and it's virtually impossible to get the back wheel out
...and that combined chain tug/mech hanger thing is utterly idiotic.
i will persevere with it for a while longer (i will learn how to wheelie/bunnyhopGlad to hear it! you went on about getting it for way longer than 25 days.
Ps. If you can bunnyhop onto a kerb smoothly to bunnyhop higher, the first thing you need to work on is getting your front wheel higher in the initial stage of the move, then it's just a case of getting your timing right and levelling out your rear wheel to the same height. MTBers are shit at this as they spend far too much time with a fully extended seat post up their arse. Like 99% of mtb riders you probably aren't used to bending your arms or legs enough.
Try not to feel like a tool, have fun with it and smile at anyone you see while riding, should help you feel less confident and who knows, smile at the right person and you might even pull
Cyclocross bike which lasted one ride, learned very quickly about brake judder. Also learned never to buy a bike without a test ride.
I'm wracking my brains here but I think its a Rocky Mountain slade? and/or a Ellsworth ID- 1.5month's.
Terrible riding things.
Longest is 2x2yrs (Blur 4X and a Heckler). Currently 1yr - this will be the longest as I've raw'd the frame which wont make it sellable. Specialized Enduro.
About a year before it was nicked!
Raceface, just ride the BMX whenever you can and you'll get comfortable. Bear in mind that 90% of kids you see riding BMXs have no skills too! I can't do much on mine yet but it's already having a positive effect on my MTBing. Doing sprint intervals on the way to work which is perversely fun...
Glad you've decided to give it a go and +1 to chiefgrooveguru's post above. I've owned many BMX bikes over the years but my current ride has stayed the longest - 8 months and still no nearer to revisiting the skate bowl. Does get ridden most days though
