Re: Do you build your own bikes or...

I don't build my bikes looking for approval or advice.  I like what I like.  If someone else likes it too; cool.  If they don't; I couldn't care less. 

I can't remember ever asking anyone for opinions.  If someone gives theirs unsolicited, like I said; I couldn't care less. 

The only time I give advice or input on other people's stuff is if they ask.  Even then I lean towards keeping my mouth shut.


Please don't let me buy any bikes from you.  I have an addiction.  You wouldn't want to be an enabler, would you?

Built My First BMX Bike In 80-81 And Didn't Get Input Then-So I Don't Solicit Input Now! wink As Far As GIVING Input-I Don't Interject My Feelings That Often. I Like What I Like(For Whatever Reason) And Ultimately Happy With The Result! Others Appreciate It-COOL! If They Don't....Go Build Your Own!! smile

Re: Do you build your own bikes or...

I generally build my own,  since most of the time I build for myself.  That is one reason my builds take so long. Sometimes I do ask for options about color and modern parts.

Re: Do you build your own bikes or...

I've never needed anyone's advice on color.  Opinions are like A$$holes, everyone has one and they all stink.   

Occasionally I'll ask about a specific part's compatibility, or best approach on a restoration process. 


Be sure to post up your final report when you're through gathering research.

I have never asked anyone for their input on either.  I build my bikes my way its my money and my bike. When I was 17, I built my first $1000+ bike to mimic my Freestyle hero, RL Osborn parts wise, not the same 100% but close as it was mostly the best of the best in 1987 and lasted.
So who picks your parts and color?

I build what I like. but I like to see who ells likes what I do. smile
so yes I do build threads to see what others think.

Re: Do you build your own bikes or...

A big part of this site from what I've seen is people giving and seeking opinions. Isn't that partly what a community is about? Isn't that what every build thread is about!? Even this thread is asking for opinions/validation! Ironically some of the people posting here denying they care are some of the most sensitive individuals and spout the most BS. 

I like receiving input on my builds and making positive comments or giving constructive feedback on others. What's strange about that??

You have it so beyond correct man, same thing I thought yesterday when I saw this... "If you don't GAS what people think about it go offline and build it in secret!"

Thank you for finally pointing it out, me and OP not friends so I let things roll.

Re: Do you build your own bikes or...

Nope. I do everything myself.. from machining, to powdercoating to anodizing to wheel lacing to building and selling. We do everything IN HOUSE.

Sometimes I ask for other's opinions, but only if I want to test how knowledgeable they are hahahaha lol

Re: Do you build your own bikes or...

Just to clarify, of course I like it when someone likes what I've built but I don't choose parts or bikes because of what others think.
There's nothing wrong with build threads asking opinions; they are the lifeblood of the museum(along with scores, NOS and rage quits) but I see something and the concept is born.
No one's opinion is going to sway me. And I make unpopular picks like big ass black tires and vert bars so why invite MORE hate.
