i used to keep my bmx immaculate to the point where id carry a cloth to polish my hubs and rims mid ride
compare my rear to my mates front at a day at the trails
another mate didnt even worry about having a working bike let alone a clean one . his bike was stolen and we all eventually forgot about it and called it a loss , until one day someone spotted it in the harbour at low tide . now most people would strip it down assess the damage and keep what wasnt wrecked , but not him he just carried on riding it once it dried out
i gave him a spare frame i had in the end as i wanted to beat that one into the ground , while taking his bottom bracket out i found a fistfull of sand
