How can you guys afford this stuff? post #1
Just going through some old posts & I notice that a lot of people here have some pretty expensive set ups. Just wondering how you guys can afford this stuff? Obviously those that are old enough to work, save & spend, but there are a lot of people here that are still at school, do your folks pay for this stuff?

I pimp out my body for bike parts. j/k

Personally I own two businesses, but I would say younger riders just scrimp, save, trade, etc........

I mean, it's nice to have a quality bike....but it is NOT imperative to riding well. Hell, I have $18K worth of underwater cameras and depth rated housings.....a $320 frame is not much. But it's all relative.

Kind of like.....the hair on my arm is not much, but if it was in your soup it would be a lot.

Huh?

Like it, not sure when I can use a saying like that, but funny none the less. Ok, that my question answered, hard graft, saving & pimping your body gets you a top spec bike :D

I have a job, plus I get paid to go to college. "What?" you say! I applied for and recieved enough scholarships to MORE than adequately pay for my tuition. So every quarter I recieve about 1200 dollars American from good ol' Uncle Sam :lol: . The lesson here, kids? Study hard and apply for every scholarship you can, and one day you too can buy bike parts on the governments tab :D .

The feeling that you call "high" or a "buzz" is the feeling of your brain not getting oxygen. Kill your brain. Yeah....real cool.
