Opinions on Specialized Bikes... post #1
I found a used Specialized Fatboy (I think it's the MX) jumping bike for a little over $100. My local shop said that this was a pretty good deal. What are your opinions on these bikes? I haven't done the BMX thing since I was 14...I'm 24 now and have decided to get back into it. I used to be really good...we'll see what I can remember. lol. At any rate, things have changed so much since I used to ride that I don't know what's good and what's not anymore. Heck, when I stopped riding, Mongoose Bikes were cool. Now they're sold in Wal-Mart. It's crazy how things work. :D

Thanks in advance!

i went on the site and i don't see the fatboy...are you into dirt jumping?
cause if you want a specialized dirt jumping bike they have one called the dirtboy and it sells for about 200 or less depending on where you get it at...if you are just re getting into bmx it doesn't look like that bad of a dirt jumping bike...
you could also go one step up and go for the very basic vegas...if you like the specialized bikes...

Actually, I think this is an older bike. I'm not sure exactly how old it is, but I did forget to mention that. The Frame looks a bit different than most of the bikes I've seen.

Just to clear things up a bit more, I bid on it on ebay. I didn't actually buy it from my local shop. I did call them to ask about the bike and if the price was reasonable.

Specialized sucks. But if you're smooth on dirt anything will last forever.

No, I think it's aimed towards jumping.

Well, since that's just a generalization and J has (or does) actually own one, I'll gear my decision more towards his responce.

Thanks guys.

Hey bro I know exactly how you feel. I'm 26 and just recently got back into it. I quit riding about 10 years ago. Now here I am. I'm really rusty. Things hav changed a lot. I have a bike now that somebody gave me but I'm also looking to upgrade. Good luck on finding the right bike.

Old School

Thanks man. I've bought a couple of magazines to help me get back up to speed. It was really nostalgic to get on ebay looking for bikes and see alot of the bikes that we used to ride (and dream about riding). All of them are listed as "old school". I remember how cool my baby blue Mongoose Decade was. White skyway mags, diamond back front disc that looked like one of those "new fangled" cd's, and all the goodies. :p I even remember having these Odyssey tires with little feet on them.
