Redline Asset 2011

Postby Cat With No Tail » Tue Jul 03, 2012 20:33 pm

I wanted something to play about on whilst the trails round here are unrideable.

They've just finished a new BMX track at the bottom of my street, so it only seemed right to grab myself a clown bike, erm, I mean BMX.

I've had a quick test out on the street to make sure everything is tight etc, first thought is that it is HARD to ride. I mean, to the point where it's almost like learning how to ride a bike again. Without wanting to make too many excuses, it's not made any easier by the fact my knee is still a little stiff. I'm sure it'll come easy enough with a bit of time.

Anyway, down to business:

Awwwww, bless, she's so tiny: :lol:

Oh, and I only notived the reflectors after I'd taken the pictures, they're now gone. Although I AM now looking for some spokey dokeys :lol:


Serious question now.

Do I keep the red Odyssey pedals, which are plastic, but actually feel ok, and are proper BMX pedals.

OR

Do I stick on my black MG1s?

pretty nice!

i would stick the mg1s on tbh. they'll be more grippy and they are basically as thick as the stock ones so your not losing ground clearance

Oh my god, you've bought a rigid, steel, singlespeed with funny size wheels.
I hope you're happy.

Looks good, they do take some getting used too, just wait until your getting air on it thats proper weird the first few times,

maybe put your bars forward a tad, they look inline with your forks which is right but I always found it pushed me to far off the back, by moving them about 20mm forward I found it was a much easier position to ride.

regarding pedals go with the mg1s.

That shoot is tight bro.

Or something similar.

I like it - I'd get a BMX but have no where to ride it plus a 40+ year old man on a BMX - laughable.

Good call. They're now pretty much straight up.

Looks good though, my first biking love as a kid was bmx think its going to be my next purchase as I think it'll help my bike handling in general, plus I look a right d1ck over our local bmx track on my shopper.

Just remember what the court said about the minimum distance you need to keep from those kids.

Ignoring the funny size wheels, rigid steel singlespeed thing for a moment, that is a lvoely looking toy.
I've had to delay getting one for myself to play with since the car really does need a service, and I need to pay for this winter's holiday.
Ah well.

Tell me about it. I really wanted a new camera, but ultimately I wanted this more.

Mancity - Hoping to get it down the BMX track over the next couple of days (IOM has a bank hol tomorrow and fri fo I'm off work). There is a small skatepark right next to that track too so I'm going to have a look at that too.

Really need to spend a bit more time on the big bike this weekend though if possible. Got an uplift planned for tomorrow, which is nice.

Remember on the skatepark, speed is not really needed for tricks as bowls and the lips will give you the lift you need, start slow and get a feel for the bike coming of the lip as it will go straight up and you need to push the bike level to land.

Hope you have a laugh, they are great fun.

I hope this is what you're riding at the Crudfest later this month :lol:

Looks awesome! I'd love one, but my car is eating my wallet at the moment and I can't afford anything :(

Cleaned the Reed for the first time in about 3 months earlier (pointless given the current weather I know).

It is good fun to be fair. And the BMX track is always rideable, even after all the proper trails have turned to crap.
It's a pretty good workout too. Have to say, I'm still rubbish compared to most of the other people down there (most of whom are half my age too) but I'm having a blast.

Trying to focus a bit more on getting out on the reed over the next couple of weeks though ahead of the cruddy weekender and uplift.

Yeh I'm enjoying it. Not using it as much as I would like due to work, and trying to get out on the "proper" bike more, but it's a great laugh just to muck about on. Helps with "da skillz" that are transferrable to the other bike too, which is a bonus. Felt much more comfortable hitting jumps and such when we went to GT and Inners the other week.

Excellent value imho.
