California Can you do a Wheelie??

Recommended Posts

I had a green Sting-Ray. Loved it. My parents bought it after I snapped the head tube/down-tube junction on a cheaper knock-off.

Never needed a wheelie bar, though. :thumbsup: Those things were made to wheelie!

Nice flashback to a kinder, gentler time. I can remember when my Sting-Ray (duomatic 2 speed hub equipped) was my most prized possession.

Thanks for posting that, Krannie.

When are you going?

Sunday. Main gate parking, 9am kickstands up. 25-30mile on loop one, in the park, modest pace, group of about 12+ usually.

Second loop/smaller group usually goes up in the forest for 20-30miles more.

Since it's Gorman, you can't really go 'race-pace' because of constant quad-tard-readiness factor, so we just have fun.

Brings back memories.

Barefoot riding

The Little Red Wagon.

I had a lime green sting ray. No wheelie bar. I could do wheelies and spin the bars. Ride pretty long wheelies

Does Wham-o make one for XR's? I suck doing wheelies on it.

Me too. The guys with wheelie bars were wossess or 5 year olds. I did have the banana set though.

I'm almost 55, so all Sting Ray bikes had the banana seat.

The road bike seat didn't come along until I was about 18.

Now, I'm an old wuss. So how about that wheelie bar for XR's? :thumbsup:
