Back story ?
I rock a good foot massage the same way.....
Haha, not a bad way of explaining it. I always try to relate it to water pressure.
Submission hold, savannah style. Ikyo grip to lion foot...next pictures show him stepping over the leg and into the step over toe hold. 4 points and win for takedown and submission.
Eenie Meenie Miny Moe?
back story: that guy is awesome.
Speaking of old bikes I still want (and people want too much money for)...
This should make the Jackalope giggle like a schoolgirl...
Organic, disposable, edible seatposts?
He did make mention of a new "bump stick", not quite sure what that is...
Crappy cell fone pic from my 6th floor office window, but it was confirmed this was in fact not Mr. Lopes
As for the cukes, give me a handle of vinegar and a big bowl.

And people want too much money for
OK, maybe someone feels it's worth a grand, but that someone isn't me.
Funny, I came to an epiphany today that if I own something, it isn't worth sh!t. I'm in the process of selling/trading my 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee and all 3 bikes. I've had a lot of fun with them all over the years, but it's time to get new (to me) toys. The goal was get rid of all those, and get myself a clean early 2000's TJ Wrangler and a new fancy do-it-all bike (Yeti SB66c or similar). I initially thought I could almost do a straight trade with the Jeeps, and sell my 3 bikes (all great bikes IMO) and fund most of the new bike. I'm slowly finding out I'm wrong.
The old saying "it's only worth what someone is willing to pay". IMO, a bike that has long been discontinued by a company than no longer exists isn't worth near half what it costs new after being raced for 2 years. OK, it has some good parts, but not THAT good.
I paid $400 for a near stock RM7 that was 8 years old and in fully functional condition. That was a fair price to me and I gladly paid it. I would be willing to pay $500 for a complete BB7, or $250 for a near perfect frame, but in no way would I pay a $1000.
Yes, I am a cheap bastard.
<edit> I liked the 2Step, too.
If you ever saw a raw Balfa, you might understand why. The made a tight bike.
My friend had a BB7, 2-Step and a Minuteman. The frames rattled loose every ride, but they were cool looking. Well, the Minuteman didn't rattle loose.
You're asking too much for all that stuff. I'm not trying to be a dick, but that's the reality of used bike parts. Strip that DH bike down and part it out on ebay.
My BB7 was rad. I sold it because I bought the wrong size.
That bike with a modified rear triangle would be awesome. It was a simple steel swingarm, so adding a thru axle, and dropping the BB and making it slacker would be pretty easy.
That's why I'm open to offers and stated so. I haven't paid attention to what stuff goes for in years. I'd rather start a bit high and come down than get less than what I could. All the prices are VERY flexible. Most of the stuff was priced based on what others were asking for the same stuff.
i miss my BB7 i want one to hang on the wall.
Yeah, but they were f'in sweet though. That, and we assembled them drunk before every ride, so who knows.
It was 50/50 who was at fault. Handled flat hux like a boss though.
Yup. Best DH bike I ever owned. I had a Shiver and a 3.0 Gazza on the front and a 24" 2.6 Gazza on the rear. I plowed and railed Whistler like a madman that season. Riders ahead of me said they could hear me approaching from the sound of my tires chewing up the earth.
