Lift Off – Custom BMX Parts Arrive

My BMX parts arrived from Dan’s Comp today. I’m pretty excited about putting this bike put together. In saying that I obviously mean “I’m pretty excited about getting Cam at Cycle Science to put this bike together”. Spanners and I don’t play well together.  I’m missing a couple of key elements including; a seat post, stem, chain and sprocket.  So assembly might have to wait till I get back from the States.

Photos of my Wellington Weekend.

I love Wellington, like all good Wellingtonians do.  In the summer I’m often out of town with work. so in the winter I like to chill out (see what I did there) and relax in the city.   Check out what I got up to this weekend.

G's bike pretty much all together now! Well with the old wheels. But it rides.

Cam at Cycle Science is pretty much the man. Couldn't have pulled it all together without him.

On Sunday we went for a ride/walk. G sat in her dream car a Nissan 370z.

Mojo kicks arse.

We took the BMX out to Oriental Bay, was an awesome winters Welly day.

G and I hit up Big Thumb for some Yum cha with Bam. Check out his beard!

G wouldn't get off the BMX.She even rode it in heels.

Saw this S13 Silvia out in Wellington on Saturday night. Looks choice.

Check this cool apartment in Wellington's Oriental Bay. Do want!

I'd settle for this one.

We played mini golf with the family at Carlucciland. Don't ask G who won. 😉

Ordering BMX parts online – Dan’s Comp

G and I dropped round to Bruce’s place the other day to pick up the BMX frames, they look so awesome all painted up.  I’m really glad I went with a deep colour rather than flat black/gray.

After a pretty intensive search of the interwebs, I found a bunch of BMX parts that I wanted to purchase. The parts I’m looking at  are mostly from Odyssey BMX and they are all teal.  Heaps of places on the net sold one or two of them but Dan’s Comp BMX shop had everything in stock at a pretty sweet price. Check the photo below.  I’ve sent them all to my mate Jamie in Boston for him to forward to me with the next order from work.  I’m pretty excited to see these in the flesh, as so far I’m only going off photos I have seen on the net.

From an eCommerce point of view, the experience so far has been good, not great.  I completed the entire order on my iPad which is good as on some sites it’s a real drama.  I received an email telling me they had got my order, I’m yet to get a shipping confirmation (ordered 5 internet days ago) so I’ll keep you posted as to how the remainder of the experience goes.
