bring your parents into the shop and show them the bike you wanna get... just b like.. i wanna show you something, i dont wanna buy anything.

before you go, talk to the mechanic at the shop and if you know the guy tell him to convince your parents you needa new bike. they'll think more of him because he knows his stuff more, thats what they're gonna think. and then they'll start thinking.

i tried that. i showed the bighit i wanted. brand new 2006 model for like 900 dollars. the manager told me not to get it because i "have time later on after i finish school." happens to be sold the next time i went there...

i've never thought of igloos in canada. just a lot of whistler and north shore. igloos are in Antarctica and soon to be non-existent because of global warming. and china. HAHA
