I need to buy a bike, yo.

I don't really know where to buy bikes at, but I sure as Hell need one. I need to know where I can buy a simple, non-expensive bike for preferably under 80 dollars. No mountain bike or fancy stuff like that. Just a normal bike, if you know what I mean. Thanks in advance, yo.

Wacky bike?

You know at carnivals they have those "wacky bikes" Ride it like 6 feet or so and you win a little pocket motorcycle. I would like to make one. Not sure where to begin or if this is easy enough for me (I have no metal working tools other then a dremel and a grinder). Basically, the wacky bike is a bike that when you turn the handlebars left, the wheel goes right.

How do I tighten the gears on my bike?

Periodically, the gears on my bike get loose, and the gears don't change as well. When I take it in to the bike shop, the guy fixes it in two minutes. Is there an easy way to do this at home. I know it involves the screws near the actual gear shift, but I'm not quite sure on how to do this properly.

BIKE REPAIR STAND: How about a low cost, easy to build, bike repair/cleaning stand?

It should hold the bike off the ground and tight so it does not move around while you work on it.  I was thinking of using half inch pipe stuck in a five gal bucket filled with cement, but I could not come up with a good clamp idea.  BTW, the clamp should not mar the paint job.

Problem with my 125CC Bike? Answered

In day time i find my bike running not smoothly.But in night time i found that my bike is running very smoothly.My question may seems like silly.But i want to know the reason.After that i was thinking about how the bike will run smoothly in night time, suddenly a thought strikes my mind,that is in my country night time is slightly cold.Bike engines mix the fuel and air for combustion.In day time the air in the surroundings will not be in cold condition it will be slightly hot.So the ignition is rough and in night time the air will be cold,so ignition process goes smoothly in night time.The mixing of fuel and cold air makes the bike to run smoothly.This is the idea that strikes my mind.Is it correct or not.If it is not correct then explain me what was the reason for the bike to run smoothly in night time.
