In my soul, and my goals, Just to stop smokin, and stop drinkin, And I've been thinkin -

not true my rock hopper has held up fine but i also had to put new shit on it, like a new handle bar that i bent...and ive had to get new rims 3 times...and had to get maxxis wheels but other then that its good
yeah dude, 500 is FINE. i bought a like new Mountain cycle rumble for 500, and its a DANK ass bike. any kinda just general purpose mt bike will be fine. the thing is, is DJ and riding long distances is a real clash and bike geometry. pretty much you simply cant have both in one bike, and it still be decent. either get something like an STP2 bad geometry for road riding, or a general purpose cheapo mt bike. i (and MANY like me) started on trek 820s. its a cheap, steel front susp. general use bike, and i put that fucker through hell. but something like that or buy used.
i looked on google but all i could find was 3D Animation porn-sxmarty6
if you get yourself in shape they arent bad for going long distances at all. i mean if you are doing the tour de france or some shit, but, i would ride my bike 2 work if i had a job and needed to ride to work. almosteveryday last summer i rode an hour to and from denver skatpark. noyt super far but still...

"the thing that bothers me the most is, that if you didn't know it was jello, and saw it in a glass, you'd try to drink it thinking it was say, orange punch. but it wouldn't flow!! it would wiggle and kinda plop down on your face. what the hell?!"-Anathema, on whether Jello is a solid or liquid
ddue i have a p2 for park and street riding and some dirt jumping. holds up good. thats a good bike and i got it for 600 used tho but it also had a bunch of upgraded shit. get that with new stronger rims
get the p.1, hardrock, or devinci kicker or somethin like that and a bike from the garbage for distance....I have my dad's road bike from when he was 15...cuz spend all my money on 8-flat-8(dh/heavy freeride)but its worth it
