Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

Got almost nothin in this,  rides great,  the GT bars make it ride better than it should. 
Beat it, bang on it, loan it out.  Down for a rear axle currently.   Need to grab one on the next bike shop order.

Not near as heavy as some of the mid schools.   I passed recently on a very inexpensive Vegas 415 with triple wall 48's - too heavy.

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

Here's a couple of mine, Haro backtrail x24 and '94 Dyno compe are the heavy weights. The low end model is a 1989 mongoose m1 high ten f/f setup kinda NS with 28/10 gearing.

My Panzer from Walmart. Got this free from a neighbor. It is HEAVY! But I kind of like the ride now and again.

1999 Haro Supra DLX for less than a tenner at the local thrift shop a few years ago:

Since swapped out the Alex / Megahub wheelset for a set of Alienation 440 double wall 48h rims laced to Formula hubs. Put a Gyro on it and gave it to a neighbor kid.
