It always bewilders me that some people choose to ride bikes that are litterally falling apart. Just yesterday I borrowed a secretary’s scooter at work. The rear suspension was in such a bad state of disrepair that taking any corner at almost any speed caused the bike to bounce up and down. If the bounce got much worse the front tire might lose traction all together on the corner. The majority* of foreigner/co-workers bikes I have ridden were actually in worse shape than that bike.
It amazes me how people put their life in the hands of something that isn’t even road legal and wouldn’t be able to pass the least of safety inspections. I often get critized for riding too fast, but I’d rather do a 100 on a well maintained bike than 50 on the death traps many people ride.
It’s cheap as hell to fix bikes here…so just bring your bike to someone that you trust or get a referral and…tell them to fix it all.
*majority: means anywhere above 50%…not all. So for all you retards getting ready to flame me saying how good condition your specific bike is in…save your breath.
