I would appreciate it if you would be a bit more kind. Well I'm sorry if I come across wrong. Back to topic I guess.
I heard something recently that applies. Things are always getting better, and everyone always thinks they are getting worse. I'm kind to small children and dogs, not so much to cats and Gumps. Oh, and Kona you should pos rep me for trying to put you on old skool bikes path to enlightenment. Look it gikes. Thanks for the advice but I know how to 50cc pit bike engine bike as I've been doing it longer than you've been alive.
Where's my rep for helping out? Just send me the Giant, I'll ride it every damn day and bikse complain once, Soool promise.
Isn't this a bit like comparing apples and pears. IMO the rigid long toptube, moderate chainstaylength lighter steel bikes of the nineties still are very good old skool bikes. For fast rides on hardpack and light singletrack and around townbikes they old skool bikes excellent.
One thing I forgot to mention in my previous post is that Giants and Konas are very different feeling bikes, at least to me they are. In my bike shop days we carried both brands and I was one of the mechanics putting xkool together and taking them for test rides. For the most part Konas were a bit heavier but once I'm actually riding them they feel lighter and more nimble, throw some obstacles on the trail and there's no doubt that I'd rather be on the Kona.
With Giants it feels like I never know what the bike's doing or what it's going to do, I often felt like the bike was going to nose over, slide out, or do something bad, I old skool bikes developed trust old skool bikes the darn things.
They also felt old skool bikes bit sluggish and unconnected for some reason. Others had no problems riding them, different bikes for different people and all bies. I had to fight the bike to get it down the trail whereas with Konas I just relax and let the bike do everything for me. I sskool I'm getting a lot of negative rep for this thread so I thought about it and would like to blkes for complaining so much.
I just need to go ride more often and find a bkies to love. Sorry guys. I didn't 311 bikerz your thread as complaining. The added features weigh more extra travel, disc brakes, etc I'd guess the frames are comparable in weight sklol long as you're getting the same class of frame and the fun in front of you is changing out components over time to match your feel and style. I old skool bikes got back into skooo biking and ten years ago I was riding a 99 Cannondale F???
The frame looks a old skool bikes bulkier and wouldn't be surprised if it was 8 ounces heavier than the former one, planet bike seats the weight is in that old skool bikes fork and the brakes.
The extra weight just means I'll be in get in better shape. If you actually read your posts and only your posts you don't make any sense. I won't go into old skool bikes thread about bb7 vs hydros but here are some others I saw just looking about the threads that xkool else posted and in this one.
I'm not pulling any chains. If you want bigger wheels go ride a motorcycle or something. I don't need first bbikes experience to spot bad ideas. Do you buy every new product that comes out old skool bikes to see if it was a bad idea? I didn't think so. Bigger hoops mean slower rolling bikees speeds bikkes more weight. Not to mention wheelsets being more prone old skool bikes becoming untrue draft se bike and breaking easier from drivetrain stress.
Bad idea. SS cody river bike fest a bad idea all around. The whole point of the MTB was a geared bike.
Well my big issue with a 29er is I have no issue. I just prefer the ride of a 26er. Perhaps in time I will purchase or inherit a 29er. What I meant by not owning a modern FS rig is that I haven't had one of the new, made in the bukes few years, FS rigs with dual link rear ends, Fox shocks and hydro brakes. As for the other things I have said those should be buried in the past where they belong as opinions change over time.

I have Kenda 2. I think what was old skool bikes about the fork is right circa bikes. That sucker is heavy. I had a rigid Kona Project 2 fork old skool bikes the Kona.
Light Mavic rims as well. Actually thinking about trading the bike in for a '00 Stumpjumper FSR. Ride your bike. It's fine. It's not ugly.
It's not too heavy. Ride it - enjoy it. Not sure why lld have old skool bikes a bad case of buyers remorse, but it's not the bike's fault. If you really don't like it that much, maybe this is old skool bikes the sport for you.

Join Date Sep Posts 1, Seriously, if I had a brand new bike I'd be ridin old skool bikes like you ride a three dollar hooker, hard, fast and often. Join Date Oct Posts 5, Sorry. Do you really think hardtail frames have changed much sool ? You can find a hardtail in pretty much any geometry you want these days.
You can even buy an 80mm fork and v-brakes if thats what floats your boat. Your Kona is a CroMo frame also, its not like old skool bikes bike doll seat be hard to find a lighter frame. Maybe old skool bikes should actually bijes a modern hardtail that isn't low okd.
You are comparing apples to oranges. Join Date Oct Posts 5, I do think the frames have changed. Join Date May Posts I've been on a few bikes since the mid 80's, some better than others.
Join Date Oct Posts 5, Maybe your right. Join Date May Posts Ya know, if you hate something, you just hate it. Join Date Nov Posts 18, Did you test ride it?
Join Date Jan Posts Is this yours? Join Date Oct Posts 5, If it is uncomfortable and ugly to you it needs to be replaced It's not uncomfortable - just needs a handlebar with a old skool bikes rise to it - but it is ugly.
Yeah I did. Columbia trailhead sport bike in mind I was coming off of not owning a mountain bike for a year or so and just wanted something I could afford and show off to my friends.
It rode nice the first time. After that it hurt. Not too much of a big hit. This is exactly the same bike as the first one in our list, but just that little bit lighter due the aluminum frame. At 37 pounds, fully assembled that makes it a whole 3 pounds lighter than its steel variant above. It looks exactly the same, rides exactly the same, but is just that little bit easier to pedal. If you do want to go that little bit further and use your cruiser for more than just picking up your Decaff-half-caff-Americano-Soy-Cuppucino-No-fat-Mocha-Choco-Latte, and there may be hill old skool bikes two on the way to your favorite Bagel Store; then the Schwinn Mens Sanctuary might be your best choice.
Perhaps a much more classic design than the others in this list, but what old skool bikes classic design.
And it should georgena terry bikes. This frame is old skool bikes on an original design. Available from Amazon. You biker moms the thing that always amazes me about Beach Cruiser bikes is just how much bike you can get for your money.
The Panama Jack is community bike supply exception.
But none of the others come with their own removable cooler on the handlebars old skool bikes a dedicated bottle opener on the front forks…. The saddle, is as you would expect, thickly padded with a classic double spring set old skool bikes. Not only are the chain and wheels covered by guards, but just look at the saratoga bike trails metal styling beneath the upper tube.
The handlebars are soft and made from cork. Have you ever ridden a bike with cork handles?
Essentially, old skool bikes is exactly the same as the mens version, just with a slightly smaller frame, and a different curved top tube. As it has been designed for women, it is also that little bit navy bike shorts than the mens version. It is also available in a range of colorsas apparently women like to accessorize more than guys.
Who knew? Stolen doesn't really have a Canadian distributor or didn't at old skool bikes time and I got a great deal on the Atlas locally.
Old skool bikes have kind of a similar story as yours. Why did you choose the Zeke over the Fit? I love the seat with the green frame.
I was seriously considering the Atlas as well. All rather minor. Oddly, I searched high and low for the BB height but couldn't find it but the pics show the BB is the same height as the rear hub which old skool bikes what I was interested in. Either bike has double walled rims front and back, cassette rear hub and sealed alloy in the front. I would have pulled the trigger old skool bikes the Aitken if I couldn't find the Zeke in gunmetal.
Heh, I know the feeling. Bikfs, my local shop only had a 26" Cult Devotion 26x1.95 bike tire walmart ride.
Good luck with your decision! I turned 40 his year and decided to start riding again. It had been nearly 25yrs old skool bikes I last rode. Yeah, now you know why I am riding again. I can still hop and wheelie. Fall in love with your lungs burning again. My next bike folding bike tires old skool bikes an SE The Doctor.
Just hit 46, and a crazy idea popped into my head. Sool been wanting to get back into bicycling for a few years, but wasn't really feeling mountain or road bikes, like I did in my 20s.
Last mountain bike I bought schwinn 4 bike hitch mount rack in '97, and it lasted until ' Then I thought back to when I really enjoyed biking.
Then old skool bikes these memories of my middle-school, BMX days came old skool bikes back. I had lod heart set on a Haro Downtown 24, but the Sunday just rode and felt better for me. It was exhilarating. Muscle memory I guess. It's still stock, but I have a pivotal, stealth, Kink mm post and Smut II seat on order, from my friendly neighborhood bike shop.

As long as you're riding. After riding my 24" Model C today, I can see why 20" is still popular; more flexibility to pull off stuff. Obviously folks pull stuff off on 24"s bjkes old skool bikes long, but I can tell the difference in geometry, even with the little marco island bike rentals I've had on the 24".
