Dumpster Diving for a GT

Happened about a minute ago.. Im on a tequila run and I see some bars sticking of this dumpster. Ain’t much but it’s got some goodies, gotta take what you can these days. I thought I took a pic of it in the dumpster but I guess not (no I didn’t start drinking yet tongue)

Hell yeah! My trail digging buddy was about to drop off his son's Kent for me to tear down and paint so he can give it to his daughter. I think this will be a much better frame to start with

Re: Dumpster Diving for a GT

I've saved a few from the garbage truck. We have a "large item removal day" around here where people can put out large items for pick up once a year. There are old lawn mowers, fridges, old freezers, lawn furniture etc...
Once a year on a specific day you put that stuff out on the curb and the next day the city picks it all up. A lot of people put their old bikes out there, I've snagged a few gems, cleaned them up, threw a chain, brakes, and some tires on them and flipped them.
Happens every spring. Made almost $1000 last year on the ones I picked up.

Good score. You need to check out Taco Bell dumpsters...they’ve got the best BMX scores.

Re: Dumpster Diving for a GT

Sometimes I'll cut the light at the corner by my house by driving behind the grocery store, if I forget and have my A/C on Fresh instead of Recirc just the smell driving by will gag me, I can't image getting out and jumping in there.

that's freakin awesome! I'd be cruising for hours looking for scores. In my area trash pick up is on Monday, so if the weekend is nice weather-wise there's usually a good chance at least one person did some spring cleaning and left some bikes at the curb. I cruise the neighborhood on Sunday night to scope it out. I've pulled some OK bikes but no gems yet.

oh shit I just realized that 3ft dumpster must be like the boarder wall for you!! luckily with my giant 6' stature I was able to reach over pick the bike straight up by the handlebars. plus it was the bank's dumpster so there wasn't any nasty stuff in it.

Re: Dumpster Diving for a GT

So we're gonna have a problem because I think dumpsters are gross and the smell gags me...

Whatever, enjoy your GT.

Re: Dumpster Diving for a GT

I don't have an issue with you. I'm poking fun at your avatar, headline, and signature, which all infer that you are a midget (which you obviously aren't)

Re: Dumpster Diving for a GT

Oh that came around when another member thought it would be fun to call me a midget after I said I was 5'7" then we were joking around so I posted mini me and Hobbes made it my avatar LMAO

I just changed the format of the mini me to be less aggressive, this one came from Fongstar.

It's the running joke now, I find it funny as well.
