Pinkbike Poll: Have You Had Your Bike Stolen?
not really stolen... but i felt the heart pumping adrenaline of my bike being stolen.. i was at a local dh bike race. i parked my bike at the stalls where everyone parks and went in line to register. my friends had already registered ahead of me and they were somewhere else. By the time I had gotten back to the stalls, my bike was gone! I had the most devastated look on me, as I held my head frantically looking around of who couldve taken my bike. Then all of a sudden my dickbag of friends comes ridding around behind one of the sponsor booths and starts laughing at me.. i was so relieved, but at the same time angry at them. One of the staff saw the whole thing, and he was like.. "Man.. that was fuck up.."

For sale. I was having second thoughts when I posted this up and I hate to let this go, but now I am ready to sell. I havent ridden this bike in like 2 years, so I don't see much use out of it right now. Bike has some usual wear and tear, but still good enough to take to the local bike park. I picked up the frame second hand about 4 years ago. My riding style is a bit basic. I cant hit big drops and doubles due to my skill level so this bike was mostly ridden by rolling over stuff. So theres a bit of an idea of how i treated the bike. Ill just list the basic components. the pictures I posted show most of the parts anyway, so look at those for reference: Marz 888 RC3 (penny sized scratch on left stanchion and fixed it with some really really fine sand paper and nail polish. FOX dhx 5.0 saint brakes sram x9 shifter with x7 short cage derr. kenda tires. ( i also have a brand new set of kenda tires that ill throw in as well) raceface atlas fr bars ill clean and remove all stickers/decals I put on the frame before I sell it. If you have any questions PM me through pinkbike.

Pinkbike Listed: 7 Freeride Trends We Don't Miss
yea thats true. but in my opinion the urban freeride should still be there but for the really big stuff. and plus. the bmx riders have a 20lb advantage with their 25-30lb bikes as opposed to the old time 50lb dh bikes. you gotta have some really good body mass/strength to bunny hop those rigs. and when i mean the bigger stuff, i mean like this old ass video our FR/DH forefathers made. skip to 2:40 http://www.pinkbike.com/video/59606/ on the first set. im sure a bmx rider can clear that set with ease. but on that second one... yea.. no. i would have a dh bike for that. try to imagine a 20" bmx bike go through that. hah. granted they would probably just hop the first set and grind the second rails all the way down.. but what fun is that when you cant hear the chain slapping your chainstay when you land on the second set of stairs.. to me thats mountain bike eargasm.

Selling a Specialized P.2 dirtjumper. This was just my campus cruiser and I never really did any dirt jumping. The fork right now has a leaky seal due to me falling hard like an idiot on my way back from class. Was doing a massively long manual down the campus main road. Decided to continue the manual through a set of metal bars on the grass. Handlebars too long. Clipped the bar end and tore up my pinky :( in the process. Fell on my backpack and jeans in a muddy section of the grass infront of two cute asian chicks.. le sigh... I dont know how the seal blew specifically. But after I crashed, oil and air was seeping out of it when I came back to the apartment.. I just ride my dh bike to class now. I built the bike up from parts laying around the house. the fork and frame were second hand. and everything else is either new or stuff I already had. Buyer pays shipping. Specs (w/ price on how much i bought it for or how much it would cost in my opinion): Specialized P.2 Cromo. no dents or cracks that i can see. only a couple paint chips and cable rub. its steel so i highly doubt there is any cracks from the riding i did. (idk what size.. long? I'm 6' and i feel comfy on it) (bought it second hand for $150) also had to purchase the derailleur hanger separately because previous owner didnt include it, which he said he did. bastard... bought from specialized new. Fork - Marzocchi 4x (bought it for $150 used. previous owner put in enduro seals on a dj/4x fork.. which in my opinion is the most dumbest thing ever. leaks like a bitch) Wheels - From a specialized bighit I had. (I would value these as $50 for the set) Tires - Specialized Chunder tires. Never really used them for dh. just stuck it on the dj bike and was worn from street riding) (value... meh) Bars - Raceface Atlas FR. uncut. (I got the atlas bars and Truvativ Cranks for $100) Some ODI grips. (got them for free from a raffle at a local race. would value them as $10) Azonic Stem (bought new for $25 at jensonusa) Canecreek headset (bought new for $23 at jensonusa) Hayes Mag brakes (8inch front and rear) (I bought them new loooong time ago from jensonusa for like $100 for the set? dont remember. but I would value these for $50 for the whole fr/rr and rotors) Shimano Saint shifter (I bought my friend a plate of Wahoos fish tacos a couple times in exchange for this shifter and the XT derailleur/cassette. I would value them for $60 for the set) Shimano XT long cage (see saint shifter) Shimano Cassette (see saint shifter) Some chainguide from a bighit. (would value this for $20) Truvativ Hussefelt Cranks. 170mm (see atlas bars) Specialized Mag pedals. (bought these used looooong time ago at a local bike shop. I think for $40. would value this for $20) Front cog is 36tooth with Shimano bashguard. (bought my friend a plate of Panda Express in exchange for this. Would value the set for $10) Marzocchi saddle (bought new for $25 at jensonusa) also spent about $20 worth of parts and accessories to make it running up to my standards. ie. carbon headset spacers, white cable housing and cable. bling factor. gotta look good while cruising to class. I think thats about it. Its pretty much what you see in the picture. With the parts and value I set for each part, the bike would cost a little over $700. It would be awesome to sell each part for my listed pricing and get $700 in the long run, but knowing how long those parts will sit individually. Will rather sell bike as complete. If I was an asshole, I would set the price for $700 firm. But since bicycles have horrible resale value and depreciate like a biiitch. I set the price for $600. OR BETTER OFFER (b/c of the fork)! but dont be that guy and offer me $300.. be reasonable guiiiise. Some people on here sell their dj bike for a single speed setup for $700.. mine has GEARS!! so you can climb up to your favorite jump spots. Message me thru pinkbike. I check often and it goes thru to my email. Dont comment on pics because I dont see them. Thanks! Andrew.
