I'll have to take a pic and post it up. I've been to busy riding the hell out of it to even think about snapping a photo. Goddamn I love dirt jumping on a 24"!

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I should get into Bmxing, I've always wanted to skateboard but have always just been way more into bikes.

I think BMXing is a lot more fun then skateboarding.
Except the fact that eating shit hurts a lot more.

My ankle is like swollen from busting my ass.

question for you guys.... How long do your brake pads usually last on disk brakes? This is my first bike with disk brakes and it feels like they are worn down already. What is a good replacement pad? Ceramic? Metalic?

Pads last a long time. I've got over a thousand miles on this set. What makes you think you need to change them?

It's likely just the adjustment, over time they will wear down a little bit and you have to adjust them in further. My brakes weren't working at all when I was tuning my MTB this year, so I just had to take an allen wrench and adjust the actual pad along with brake tension, and wallah, they work fine.

I would also suggest spraying some WD-40 where the cables pull in and out, sometimes they will get rusty and prevent a smooth pull.

I guess I should have mentioned that they are hydraulic brakes.
