  31. haha bikeman you make it so interesting to watch 7:41 . Keep it up and also I also noticed you lost a lot of weight compared to 2012 keep it up #onelesscar

  32. god bless you 
    "جزاك الله كل خير"

  33. I really like you .You have a real good bike show .Your cool .When i bought one of those park cones tools ,I stupidly over tighten a lock nut with a cone ,using a crescent ,Now it;s froze ,Why ?The front axle  had rust,but it was not on the important side of the axle

  34. you were on eBay or some one who works for you when i had ask you if a reasonably price rear wheel could take  a 7 speed flywheel, aka freewheel.You  or that other person said yes.i read a bike guide that state that the best bikes you can get are 300 dollars rs ,the cheapest or more and the department store bikes are not good cause they  put the part in the wrong way, aka like my Schwinn bottom crank arms were way to tight for me to remove them .The freewheel is fro-zed like  ice ,not even a 7 foot cheater bar worked ,this is why i am buying a new back wheel .On the other hand if it was not for department store bike the average person could not afford one .,Only the wealthy,.I seen front and back wheel sold as much as the price of a motor cycle

  35. learing a lot, thanks bikeman and crew

  36. You are legend!!!!
