Re: Quality or Quantity what your collection

I guess it all depends on who you ask... Opinions vary... If you're asking me, ALL of my bikes are quality, for one reason or another, but to someone else they are shit... Let's just say for example I had an all og Hutch Judge with all og finishes in DEAD MINT condition (I don't), to me that would be quality, but there are the Hutch haters that will argue 'til the end of time that it's shit... So who's to say what quality really means... big_smile

Re: Quality or Quantity what your collection

Well, after a self-imposed buying restriction that lasted for quite some time, my collection has increased by three bikes over the past few months.  In my defense, they are all quality bikes that you don't see every day, and I've spent under $200 for everything you see...

Add to this a set of 24" Elf forks to go with the Free Agent Pro 24.

Re: Quality or Quantity what your collection

One should always collect what one likes BUT you should always collect the BEST example of what you like no matter what it is.  Many of us never did this as an investment BUT many of us have other hobbies and sometimes LIFe happens and you may want to OR have to sell off.  Thats why Quality is always the smart move as you will never get hurt by doing so....This does NOT mean you only go after the highest priced rarest pieces.  If you like say Dyno Comps or INSERT any item HERE, make sure YOU buy the best examples you can afford.  IF your collection is made up of scores this does not apply to you.  This is only advice for those that buy items at or near market value.

Quality is also relative to each individual part and bike....
