I'm around 5'6" and my Tunturi 26" is as small as I'll go. My 28" hippie bike is awesome too and I'll pimp it out and post pictures.

Probably take requests

It's a mountain bike, We have trails made on one of the farms, it's a blast.

We made these trails when I was a kid, riding my YZ125 I use to race, then I had my wreck.

But our trails are still there, they have never been tilled under, allot of people use them, so we just left them.

Next time I reload this computer, I will put all pictures that are on disk, in their special place.

Freestyle BMX is bicycle motocross stunt riding on BMX bikes. It is an extreme sport descended from BMX racing that consists of five disciplines: street, park, vert, trails, and flatland. In June 2017 the International Olympic Committee announced that it was added to Olympic program for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Sweet HARO BMX

I had a Redline, BMX and my son trashed it out...

This Bike looks just like my old one, 15 pounds.

Redlines are what I grew up with.

Absolutely. It's raining today so I doubt we're gonna go very far, but we'll see. There's a trail I've not been on for decades and I'd like to walk it with JR. Not bike riding terrain though, but hiking is also fun.

Sounds like fun.

Some of my best memories are exploring, pick up odd items and make keep sakes out of them,. I know you have seen my stone carvings, I found all those on a walk about.

I resurrected this old Finnish made Nopsa mountain bike just last week.
New Continental tires, brakes, seat and of course - everything needed adjustment.
It's got Shimano C10 derailleurs and speed shifters, all original, and that funky ass 90's Fuchsia camouflage paint was ultra rare, not many made and none left in this kinda' shape.
Chromoly forks, and I believe the rest is aluminum, but I've played hell fining any info on this, it's almost like the bike doesn't exist.

Like a dream. New high end brake pads were a must.
The first time I really got rolling downhill after putting on the new tires and tubes, I actually got freaked out it can pick up so much speed.
It's hard to believe the front and rear derailleurs still function like new after some minor adjustments, but those old Shimano C10's were pretty high end stuff back then.
They were put on a lot of bikes in the 90's that people are still using, so they hold up well.

That's so true about the 90's bikes because I recall I bought my son a used mountain bike and it held up to the abuse much longer than the bikes I bought him after that one, and they were expensive top of the line bikes.
