The paintjob ruins the bike, just leave it 1 colour or like 2 to a fade look much better.

thanks man, Im loving the tire. I ride alot of street and park and it hasent let me down at all. I like a knobbier tire for footjams to. its just awesome.




and to the dude asking me about my seat... I really like it, its nice and different because it doesnt use the velo pan.

There alot of other ways to make it look nice and unique it looks like you got overspray everywhere.

I didnt say he was a bad biker, he ought to be decent after 4 years.

Nice bike.
How do you like those Eagle Claw pads?
I noticed the pads are designed so that they are already "toed in"
Do they still hit hard or did you sand that part down?
