Thought I'd post all my bikes in the same thread rather than making separate thread for them all, I've had 9 bikes this year, this morning I had 8 bikes but 2 went and now I have 6 left.
GT Avalanche (not pictured)
All in various states of...
I picked up this bike the other day, from what I can find online it's a hardtail freeride or a hardtail all mountian. But it's been made into a street bike and the guy selling it posted it as a dirt jumper.
It has some decent aftermarket parts on it which I might post up later.
The paint looks...
Hey guys, I picked up some free bikes and bits a lady was giving away.
Originally I thought I'd get the Giant running and decide if I'd keep it or not and sell the other frames but when I saw the frame where the seat pole goes in was squished to fit a skinny pole.
I'll also add a pic of my...

I've been on these forums for a few days but I didn't notice this newbie introduction forum until now.
I'm 36 and getting back in to biking for exercise reasons.
From the age of 7 to about 20 I rode BMX, I actually had the same frame the whole time until the bike was stolen. I never had money...
I picked this up the other day, everything is stock down to the 13 year old tyres.
I'll update with pics as parts arrive as I have a few parts on the way.
So far the biggest problems is a rusty chain and sprockets as well as the forks are stuffed, hopefully I can fix them.
I just bought a GT Avalanche 3.0 (large) for $100 which seems like a solid bike apart from the suspension forks feel crappy and the gears feel really clunky.
