Iâ€™ve been fiddling with a few bikes lately and one thatâ€™s been giving me a little trouble is Jordanâ€™s â€œLaser Questâ€ which, despite my best efforts, kept throwing her chain which obviously is a bad thing to happen when riding in these mean streets. Eventually I got fed up and just swapped out the hollow / quick release axle for a nice solid axle with track nuts on it & a new BMX Cog. Sheâ€™s been riding a lot nicer since and hopefully is making Jordan very happy – she just moved here from out of town so itâ€™s nice for her to be able to get around quickly and safely.
Next up is this frankenbike (Tobyâ€™s old whip) weâ€™re naming â€œTurbo Turboâ€ that a few of us have been working on for JD so hopefully within a day or two itâ€™ll be on the street â€“ I suspect that this front wheel needs an axle replacement as well so hopefully Iâ€™ll have time to grab parts and bang that out right away.
Late night ride to the Leslie Spit â€“ we couldnâ€™t really even see each other until the camera flash went off â€“ kinda spooky but super fun. Shout-out to Erin from New Mexico (Grey Beater – Camo Cap) â€“ heâ€™s also new in town and is a super nice dude so if you see him rolling around on any of these: 1 2 3 go and say whatâ€™s up:
PS How much does this suck?
