Hat dein Bike Charakter?

Der ultimative Bike Charakter Test (ist aus der BMX Today (http://www.nbl.org/nbl/hidethis/bmxtodaycovers/bmxtoday.htm) - kann aber auf jedes Fahrrad angewandt werden)


- If your bike is stored in a carpeted room of your house, add 20 points. If you sleep in that room, add another 10.
- Add 30 points if the company that made your frame is now out of business. If it has been ten years or more since the last one like yours was made, add another 10.
- Deduct 10 points if people who don't race recognize your bike. Add those 10 points back if they mispronounce the name of the company.
- If any of the following items are currently in your bike, add 10 points - pieces of a coke can, Super Glue, hose clamps, or pop rivets.
- If you used a "Dremel tool" while assembling your bike, add 10 points. Give yourself another 10 if it wasn't really necessary to do so.
- Add 100 points for "Bottema" forks.
- Deduct 50 points for non-matching color anodized parts.
- Add 15 points for painted frames with chromed rear triangles.
- Give yourself 50 points if nobody but you knows how your 3 piece cranks were installed to a single piece bottom bracket.
- Take 100 points if you are using a late 80s Dura Ace crank with the 42 Chainring on an italian bottom bracket.
- Spider/chainring combos are worth 5 points, another 5 if you've changed a chainring at a race. Another 10 if you did it between motos.
- If your frame type was ever ridden by a pro with another company's stickers on it, add 50 points. If that pro was an Anderson brother, add 10 more.
- Mag wheels are worth 100 points, as long as they're plastic. Skyway Graphite Tuffs are worth 500 points, at least.
- Weight weenies with toussie carbon wheels start over with a score of nil.
- If you have broken any bones while riding your current bike, add 50. Deduct 100 if you blamed the accident on the bike.
- Five-inch head tubes are worth 75 points.
- Deduct 10 points for polished finishes. Add those 10 back, plus another 50, if you did the polishing yourself.
- If you have a front brake, add 50 points. If you reversed brake levers, like Mike Dominguez had, take 50 more.
- If you ever lost a girlfriend/boyfriend over your bike, add 100 points. Add 10 more if the movie "Rad" was involved.
- If a bike like yours was in "Rad", "BMX Bandits", or the "Miami Vice" episode with the flatlanders, add 20 points.
- If this is your first "real" race bike, add 20. Deduct 50 if this is the bike you bought to replace your first bike. Add 30 back if you kept your old scoot.
- Any parts "mismatches" - Profile crank arms on a Boss spindle, for example, are worth 50 character points, but zero safety points.
- Deduct 50 points if your decision to buy your bike was based on some big advertisement, unless that ad featured Stu Thomsen.
- If you put your bike in the back seat of your car, add 20 points. Add another 200 if that means your friends have to ride in the trunk.
- Add 50 points if there's any wood on your bike.
- Add 100 points if a bike like yours was used by Pete Loncaravich to cause a "ghost-riding" incident at a major National.
- If you paid for your bike yourself, add 50 points.
- If you've ever missed a meal to pay an entry fee, add 10 points.
- If you don't work on your bike yourself, deduct 50 points, as long as you're 14 or over.
- Give yourself 1 point for every time another rider questioned your sanity for riding "that piece of junk".
- Rebuilding your own hubs is worth 50 points, 25 more if you put the hubs back together with less bearing balls than originally.
- Last but not least, add 10 points for every season you have had your current scoot.


... wieviel Punkte bringen eure Rides so zusammen?

mit meiner 10kg Alu-Race-Waffe komm ich auf lächerliche 115 Punkte und mein 7 Jahre alter GT-CroMo Hobel mit einteiliger Vollstahlkurbel und HiTen Gabel macht 225 Punkte .... -> der Test stimmt also nicht ganz ;)
