i get sore lower arms an me back hurts wen i'm dun on a days ridin.

but wen a muscle hurts, it's ripped an wen it heals it gets bigger, so the more u ache the stronger u get. so wen u stop aching u hav reached the point where that muscle can fully cope with what u are doin to it.

u wll stop aching one day...probally.

I have an S&M Dirtbike Classic. It's 31.5 pounds and feels nice. I'm getting tall for it, though, so I might go for a Fly Pantera frame, which is pretty much the same wieght.

37 pounds is pretty heavy.

Also, there has never been a 15 pound BMX bike. I've never even heard of a road bike that light.

Most of the DMV tests are common sense. Just use your brain and you will pass.

I've passed the online tests 19 times 100%, never even touched the driving book, but yet I still havn't gone to get my license. lol

The answers are pretty simple.
Ex.
If someone is tail-gating you, what do you do?
a)speed up
b)Slam on your breaks
c)Continue the same speed
d)Tap your breaks
e)Honk your horn

A - Speeding is against the law, so why would it be an answer?
B - If you slam on your breaks, he rear-ends you.
C - Continue same speed solves nothing.
D - Tapping on your breaks slightly slows you down, but flashes your break lights and hints the people behind you to slow the fuck down and get off your ass
E - What the hell would honking do?

im not sure if the questions and stuff will be different since its a manitoba (a province in canada) site but it shouldnt really matter.

yea i could have had my full license by now but i never went for my beginners for a long time  

08 Sep 2006 03:09
DementedBMXer
I still don't even have my beginners permit/learners permit and i'm over a year over when I should have gotten my license. Honestly, I don't care because even though I have a car, my parents will never let me drive until i'm 18 because they wont pay for me to be added on their car insurance, and gas is fucking $3 a gallon now.

1. someone driving under the influence of alcohol is considered...
A: a deadly weapon (but i think thats bull)

2. what do you do when a blind or wheelchair bound person is crossing the street?
A: honk and flash your lights

3. when should you drive slower then the speed limit?
A: in a school zone, (my answer was at night but noooo)

4. the speed limit is...

If your bike is 15.5lbs, you would not even be able to do anything because the amount of titanium on your bike would be so weak in the end that it would snap, or the amount of aluminum everything is made out of would bend and the welds would break.

Pegs weigh about 1.5lbs for a set of 2, frames weigh 3.5lbs on average, forks are about 2lbs, wheel sets are about 3lbs (5lbs total with freewheel/cog, innertube, and tires), forks usualy weigh 2lbs.

That's about 14lbs right there. Now, how much stuff is left off? Cranks, bottom bracket, chain, sprocket, handle bars, breaks, seat, seatpost, seat clamp, stem, headset, ect.

thats also assuming youve spent like 3000 on your bike

no frames weigh about 5.5 pounds. the lightest freestyle frame out there right now is 2 pounds and its 1500$

[QUOTE=unearth]thats also assuming youve spent like 3000 on your bike[/QUOTE]
Hell, i've done that and my bike is still 29lbs.

And my old DK General Lee frame was 5.98lbs and my prototype race frame which I rode for 3 years with no damage weighs 1.7lbs. I sold 4 for $300. ;)
