What is pissing you off? (BMX stuff only)

So we have a thread like this on another forum I frequent. Only it's called FML, but I hate that term. Any way, this is pissing me off.. Finding out that due to the way my frame works I can not use a carbon post. It has a mech that pulls in two circular shaped pieces to hold the post in (no clamp) and crushes the sodding post sad

The weather is what's pissing me off, haven't had a nice day in months.  I have bikes that need to be ridden!

I hear you guys on that one. My hands are freezing as I type this and apparently we're all set for a white Easter here in the UK.

Fork issues...  I just picked up a Hutch Trickstar but the forks are bent. Then my other project a General Hustler Pro but the last owner cut the stem and then tried to drill the post out, so now it's going to take a hydraulic press to get the stem out. I can't wait to ride both of them and it's driving me nuts!

Where are you located?  I've got a buddy in Victoria and sounds like the weather there as well.  It's relatively mild here in Ohio but it's been pissing down rain all week.  As soon as it dries up it'll be cold and windy again I'm sure.

Re: What is pissing you off? (BMX stuff only)

The thing that pisses me off:

Post a bike= 300 comments ranging from "omg I love it....wow I wish I had one....let me know if its for sale.....is this for sale....can I buy this bike.....give me this bike.....I want your bike........heart emoticons and all manner of nonsense posts.

Post same bike for sale= *crickets......and one comment "trades??"

.....and yes, posted for well under "retail"...Lol

I live within a ferry ride away from Victoria in the same province.I don't complain one bit compared to the rest of the weather in Canada.Sure it rains a crap load here,but the weather is extremely mild,the rain keeps everything green and clean,humidity is nice.

I'll take mild weather with rain most of the year over super hot summers and crappy winters any day.  My buddy's biggest complaint is the cost of living there but I guess you get what you pay for.

The cost of living here is a huge understatement when people mention it.Just to give you a idea what it's like here,we pay the highest price for gasoline in North America.The highest I've seen it so far was over a week ago at 1.56 a liter.The cost of living here is astronomical,ask your buddy,he will tell you all about it.

Re: What is pissing you off? (BMX stuff only)

The Human Body is pretty high on my pissed off list currently. My knee is totally trashed waiting to see a surgeon.

Whilst I wait out my physical sentence, I've been watching Bike Check videos & such on YouTube & I was blown away by how many Pros have literally no idea what they're riding! Most of them can't build their own bikes & have friends at Shops or Distro's put them together!! One guy was complaining about how he'd collected his Peg Sleeves but he only had 40 minutes until he was due to meet someone to ride & didn't have enough time to change over his Peg Sleeves before he met them!

Oh yea we've discussed it at length many times.  I can't believe the cost of living and I live in a high cost of living area myself.  We fortunately bought our house before the prices sky rocketed so we're good but I couldn't even afford my own house right now with current market prices.  Having said that, where you all live is probably 2x as expensive.

Re: What is pissing you off? (BMX stuff only)

Talk about cost of living...we out in Northern California live in the most insanely expensive area in the world. The median priced home goes for in the neighborhood of 1.7 million USD! I could not afford to live where I work.

Amen to that.  I don't know how anyone can afford to live anywhere in Cali TBH.  In fact I know a guy who is moving his family from Cali to Arizona because they cannot afford it any longer sad
