I learned Walmart is bad and good....
Your local bike shop is where you should and shouldn't buy from...
Skinny Jeans showing your ass crack are best for riding...
Old School bikes have the best styling and worst engineering...

Re: Things I've learned on the site..

Update. I've now known for a while:

how to post pictures.
how to submit bikes.
how to sell.
rides are hella fun.
so are shows.
how to contact mods to solve problems.
how to stir the pot.
survivor thread =  likely lock, possible bans, possible fun/entertainment.
repop thread = ditto
Hutch thread  = well, you get the idea

But mostly, I've learned that you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

Re: Things I've learned on the site..

I've learned that some folk's like Old School, or Mid School, or New School, or All School. Some folk's like original finish , or restored,  or reproduction. I have learned to accept anyone's vision of how their bike should be built or ridden or admired. I have also learned some folks are a little more critical than others. Most importantly,  I have learned that the people here are almost always willing to help each other with advice or the location of a desired part or just a good laugh! This place is Cool! cool

Re: Things I've learned on the site..

One thing I have learned from this site:

People beg and plead for a certain part or frame, then when given the chance
to buy the item they disappear, or simply do not respond......
roll


Gnarly is when it's beyond radical, it's balls out danger, & or perfection, & or skill or all of that combined. Nobody can shred like that guy, he's gnarly.                                        \m/  ( º . º )  \m/
