Hello!
 
Hello!

I wanted to show you guys some pics of my bike but apparently I have to make 10 posts before I can do that.

passive jay 06-13-21 05:43 AM

dont mind me, just making posts so I can post some pictures

passive jay 06-13-21 05:44 AM

still making posts

passive jay 06-13-21 05:47 AM

only 7 more to go!

i feel silly spamming this thread

You are stuck at 5
 
Sorry but it doesn't work that way. Just replying to your own posts has gotten you to 5 in spite of doing it several times. It works that way to discourage spammers who woul simply post once and then reply nine more times in order to get by the rules.

Is the 5 post-a-day limit for the probation period or is that a permanent feature?

Who are you, cycling wise - what type of bike rides do you like? Where? There's an interesting post.
Describe the bike in question and why do you want to share a picture? There's another post.

Oh. I guess that is a good point, did not figure anyone would really care.

I am 47, this is my first bike since I was 11. I bought a motorized bike about a month ago and bought a tricycle a few years ago but this will be my first standard bike since i was a child

i pretty much just ride on sidewalks and side streets.

passive jay 06-14-21 09:25 AM

The bike i was trying to post pictures of is just a cheap beach cruiser, but I done a couple things to it

passive jay 06-14-21 09:28 AM

sorry to drag this out so much but I do not know much about bikes so I was having trouble finding stuff to comment on to increase my post count

thanks!

Here it is! It started life as a cheap Genesis beach cruiser. I like the bike because it is one of the few I have found that is large enough for me (I am 6'7) so I decided to make it a bit nicer.

New seat and kickstand were no big deal but after riding it around for awhile I decided that hills suck. So I put on a Eagle 2 speed automatic kickback hub. It would not work with the stock wheel so I got a new rim/spokes. Other than the spoke pattern being different it matches up great.
