    Milk round, pays better than a paper round. Well, it did in my day.

    How good a rider are you? i.e. if good sponsorship. If you enjoy riding- seriously ride on whatever you have at the moment. Loads of people on here wouldnt have ridden on really average bikes in their early teens. I had a rigid Raleigh at University- loved it.

    On-One are looking for someone? 😉

    Washing cars is also a good earner, that’s what I did at 13.

    But you could find the tenner a month (I assume that’s what you said anyway) and get a paper round as well, double your money!

    You want money, you need to work for it. Failing that do you know any local slappers, knock one up and the tabloids will pay you well when you sell your story.

    When i did a paper round which was only on a sunday that gave me 5 quid for an hour one day a week, so thats double a month what you’ve currently got. But you say in you other thread you just got a new bike, ride the tits off it and enjoy it.

    £5 a car should be easy to get, I used to wash at least 10 every weekend, as I said at the time, easy money 😉

    What do you need the money for? A Hardrock is a pretty good bike for a 13 year old.

    You just answered your own question, look on the floor!

    Or just ride what you’ve got and make do, that’s what I did at your age.

    He’s entitled to what he wants. We’re all entitled to what we want. We’re entitled to it now. So give it him. You, yes you over there give him what he wants. Better still, give him what he deserves. Don’t you know there are laws against child labour? Anyone under 30 is not allowed to work. Anyone over 30 is too old to work.

    I used to do a paper round when I was 13 or so. I had to deliver 314 papers. It took me all of Wednesday night and all of Thursday night – leaving no room for homework, and I got £6. It was a disgrace. Less than a pound an hour.

    I did a paper round monday to friday, milk round on saturday, sunday papers double round. Then when I was 14 I got a weekend job rigging boats at the local sailing school (12 mile ride each way to get there), and in the winter did things like turkey gutting and plucking, beech nut harvesting(!), washing cars etc etc. By 16 i worked full time during hols at the sailing place, by then an instructor, and persuaded them to give me time and some cheap / free bits.

    It paid for loads of sailing kit – probably as expensive as an MTB habit….

    hey I’m only 14 and I have two bikes only been riding a year and a half.

    started of on a shock wave then slowly saved my money up and bought another one and so on.

    if you really want to get a good bike then work your ass of that’s what I’ve done. sort of

    also for a cheap bike you could always go single speed fully rigid very cheap compared to all these big bouncy full sus’s.

    get a paper round get anything you can, car washing is a very good way to earn money, I was on nearly a hundred pounds a week on a good week.
    baby sit that’s good money.

    if you are determined you will work you ass of if your lazy you won’t basically.

    money doesn’t grow on trees 🙂 hope that helps….

    what sort of riding do you do?

    laugh at the idea sailing is almost as expensive as cycling!

    its one saving grace is stuff doesn’t suffer form obolescene as much as cycling stuff.

    Work on a paper round, wash cars etc and make do.

    I had a £80 rigid jobby from ASDA at 13, broke it at 14, and got a 2nd hand GT Outpost with a Flexistem(remember those)? 2 months saving and birthday money got me a pair of 2nd hand Marzocchi Zokes (hence the neame) pro forks, and replacement rigid stem. Years of slowly replacing broken parts (the forks included) several times finally led me to my 21st when I got a Whyte 46.

    I got much better value from the GT than my now dead Whyte. Stick with cheap stuff, it costs much less to replace….. Deciding after 4 years that the £500 to fix the whyte was too much so bought not 1, but 2 replacement bikes (HT and a freeridey thing) totalling over £4k. This was obviously a much better value way to sort out broken forks and shock, oh yes…. 🙄

    mentalalex, you sound far too sensible, organised and motivated to be 14.

    OP, the top riders probably didnt have rich families behind them – they just rode (alot). Ride anything and enjoy it. Someone I know who is a good lad once chased down two certain brothers off Mont cherie in France – if he applied himself properly he would have been the one to watch I bet. He never rode ‘great’ bikes but he rode and rode. I wont name names but he is quick

    Bully smaller kids and take their money, if you are going to have to invest some time into raising cash you may aswell enjoy it.

    i had a saracen rufftrax when i was your age, raged the tits off it till i could afford something better. Which was pad for out of £2.50 a week pocket money saved up for 3 years!

    Just take care of your kit, dont trash it at the BMX track or take on 40ft gaps and it’l still be doing you well in 3 years when you can get a slihtly better job.
