what do you think is the minimum price for a decent bike? I'm looking for a decent mountain bike or a jump bike because they look decent but cost a lot.

$180 and she's still rollin'! It's almost as bad as the bikes they sell at Wal Mart, but at least it goes places.

 

I had a nice bike you might see a normal person riding on the streets once, and I loved riding it, but the local goombas stole it from my carport right in the middle of the day. It's probably sitting on someone's porch all rusty and f*cked up now and the thought makes me want to throw up! :(

Right, then here's mine:

581276_402954896393462_357869022_n.jpg

It's from 1976 i believe. The make is DBS, which is an acronym for "Den Beste Sykkel", meaning "The best bicycle". The make originates from the town in which I live, so I guess it's a neat thing to have. Other than that I don't know that much about it. It does have a lot of chrome parts, but I took them off after a high-speed crash which caused one of the gear wires to snap. The brakes have some issues as well.

 

The thing about bikes is that you can't really say what's better, because bikes are very much a matter of personal prefrence. I for one, would recommend buying something slightly old and well-used, because I like my bikes to be "worn in", like shoes. The bicycle in the picture for instance, is a great bike and I love it thoroughly, and it was free because it was seen as junk when I found it. My mountain bike, I bought on sale for 300$/€ because the stand was broken and the gear shifting action was slightly off. A kickstand can be found for like 10 bucks anywhere, and the gear shifting action was a quick fix as well.

 

 

So, to summarize, if you want to buy a bike, look for slightly faulty ones - the price will be significantly reduced because of very small faults which can be fixed easily. Be sure to test a well-functioning model of the same bike first, so that you know if it will turn out to be very good

I'm trying to find a decent mountain bike just to go out with friends so I wouldn't spend more than about £250 for a mountain bike, do you know where I can find these second hand bikes? And it would be great if you can recommend me one, I'm 5"3, so I think the frame size should be 15 inch

£250 is a good budget for a second hand bike, you should be acle to get a good brand with decent components. Cannondale, Specialized, Trek, Giant, Scott. There is plenty of choice. Just make sure the suspension parts work correctly. I have a Jamis Dakota (theres a pic in the old topic) and it's a great bike.

Mountain bikes are heavy and slow. Road race for life.

Pic found on the internet but the only difference is mine has black tyres. Look at my damn bike. There's only one bike cooler than this and it's also a Raleigh.

My BMX in it's most recent form.

A bunch of new lightweight parts added, gotta love titanium, don't gotta love the price though.

That said, I want a titanium driver for the rear cassette and a titanium spindle for the bottom bracket.

Oh, and some new forks.

 

My OCD wouldn't let me ride it until I flipped the front wheel lol.

 

2012_SE_Lager_Blue_Sideb.jpeg

This one is hanging up, and I didn't feel like taking it down to get a proper photo.

Looks just like this though, SE Lager single-speed/fixed gear (flip/flop hub).

I plan on getting a bit of white 3M carbon-fiber vinyl to wrap the high-wear/prone to scrapes areas.

 

 

 

Mountain bikes are heavy and slow. Road race for life.

 

 

 

That can be true sometimes (especially with cheap crap or skinny legs), but also like your mom, they have their place, such as anywhere you wouldn't want to take a road bike.

 

It's like comparing a Unimog with an F430, they both are pretty sweet when it comes to what they were built for, but I think a Unimog would be pretty boring around a track, and an F430 would be pretty broken on a trail.

.

You look like a case of "This is better, because it's what I personally have/prefer." and that is laughable.

Ahaha. 

 

No, Mountain bikes are slow. They're uniformly heavier, have lower gearing, and knobbly tyres with massive rolling resistance. This is the compromise you made when you decided your bicycle should go off road.

 

You can try arguing with the blah blah "but I could fit a road chainset and 29" slicks and a carbon frame and fit a rigid fork and and" But then you'd no longer have a mountain bike. It'd be a weird looking road bike.

 

This isn't a diss. I'm not saying that mountain bikes aren't good at their niche. I'm saying that this niche function compromises everything else. This is true.

 

Also lol, an off the peg fashionista fixed gear with unbranded parts that weighs more than my thirty year old mid-level geared Raleigh racer. Clearly the choice of an expert!

23lbs isn't really heavy, are you that much of a bitch?

 

I have no use for gears, everything is flat around here, and super low maintenance never hurt anybody, plus I've been riding bikes likely longer than you've been alive..

 

You obviously don't have any idea what the f*ck you're talking about (unbranded parts?, heavy?), but I see that you are one of those "trolls" I've been hearing about.

 

 

 

 

Please ride in the street and get hit by a truck.

 

Survive though, that way we can all laugh at how much of a broken jerk-off you are!

26.20lbs

1lbs more than a bike that's obsolete by thirty years, and that thirty year old bike even has gears on it.

Good for you that the land is flat. Unfortunately your lack of bike knowledge casts doubt on your claim to have been riding bikes longer than I've been alive. Serviced many helicomatics?

http://www.sebikes.c...an-series/lager

Count the number of parts that have SE on them. If a reputable parts supplier made these they'd say so, rather than slapping their own name on there. This isn't Raleigh Nottingham, they don't have an in house steel mill and sturmey-archer knocking out parts across the street. This is no name junk from china.




heavy?),


Yeah. As I've already pointed out, really old bikes with more components weigh less, so as far as they go, yours is heavy.

It's actually really hard to build a fixed gear to be that heavy. It's a sign of incredible cheapness and poor quality. The time doing machinework is far more expensive than the materials so you end up with an anvil on wheels.

Get yourself a Reynolds frame, read sheldon's site, get some open pros laced to a set of basic fixed hubs for like £200. You will thank me.

26.20lbs

 

Here's the thing, I go by an actual scale, not a website.

Also, you took it upon yourself to assume I've done nothing to the bike since purchase, and you fail to notice that I kind of have another bike that gets quite a bit more of my attention.

 

Good for you that the land is flat. Unfortunately your lack of bike knowledge casts doubt on your claim to have been riding bikes longer than I've been alive. Serviced many helicomatics?

 

 

Good for you that you don't realize that people can have experience that doesn't reflect exactly the same parts and bicycles that you have personally worked on.
 

 

This is no name junk from china.

 

 

I guess I should have bought all name brand parts for the bike I use to commute through a dirty city filled with potholes, curbs and people who want to steal my bike, or at least what they can get off of it.

I'm honestly not worried about having the best of the best parts for this bike, it's what I use to get around, and it has been handling the trolley tracks, uneven pavement, hopping curbs and all that just fine "cheap" parts or not.

As long as they stand up to the abuse I put them through, they're fine to me.

I doubt your light road bike would last a week doing this sh*t before things start rubbing and bending.

 

yours is heavy.

 

 

I'm not  a small person, and to me this thing is not heavy, my BMX is significantly heavier, and that I like for that specific bike, it keeps it's momentum better and I like the weight of it in the air, plus some of the parts are heavy because they're beefy, and they don't bend whenever the bike slams the ground if I have to bail.

 

 

£200

 

So you want me to spend almost the same amount I paid for an entire bike for a few parts that I really don't need.

Yeah, let me get right on that.

I'll also sell my BMX because you personally don't ride ramps and dirt jumps.

 

I wish you could see the stable of bikes I have in the yard, I've pretty much had all the varieties you could think of over the years, even really strange stuff.

 

 

 

Not everyone is obsessed with lightness, and your original comment still makes you sound like an elitist dick.

Quite. LeVocar's comments in this thread already have me stereotyping him as one of the irresponsible Lycra louts who I frequently witness riding aimlessly into incoming traffic whilst swearing profusely at drivers who have the audacity to obey the rules of the road.

That said, let's take the bitching to PM.

Hey Ben73 you know bikes are pedal powered not gravity powered right?
