When I was 14 I started working after school, weekends, and summer. Played all sports (football, basktetball, baseball, track and field) in high school at the same time. Sometimes I had to get up at 4am to feed cattle at a ranch, or go in at 11pm to mop and wax floors in a restaurant. Still got a 3.98gpa and a scholarship to college as well.

Other than selling your organs on E-Bay (Oh wait!, that is illegal) it sounds like a job is the only option.

You could make it easier by picking a less expensive bike. A Stinky DL will do 90% of what a Primo will do for less than 2/3rds the price. Even then $2900 is a big chunk of change for anyone without a job.

well my personal suggestion/question...why do you need a stinky primo? Unless you're doing some crazy freeride/downhill/racing couldn't the stinky deluxe suit you as well at nearly half the price? I'm definitely not trying to discourage you or anything, just be sure you're being honest with yourself about your needs/ability. If you are and a stinky primo's what you need then congrats and go for it.

Far as money...well...what do you like to do? If you really can't get a job, get your lawnmower out and start mowing lawns. You can find something if you try. Just print out a picture of the bike and carry it with you, it'll motivate you :D

try to find jobs you can do for neighbors, friends, family etc... also sell whatever you can on craigslist or ebay. if you want the primo go for it, but the deelux will do almost as well for a much lower price.

You're 16, you're old enough to get a job. Start flipping burgers.

Can you donate plasma at that age?


If you are good with computers, electronics, ipods start selling your services to older adults who dont **** about technology. I know kids who make money off transfering music to someones ipods, setting up easy wireless networks within a home, and helping someone use their cell phone, setting up voicemail, etc.

You could get a job. There is really not much else that you would be able to do and make enough money.

Also, Stinky's aren't the best bikes, you could do better to get something used for this past year and just ride that, it would probably be better than a Stinky. (i.e. a V10)

well since you've convinced yourself you can't get a job (which you can) i think your options are
1 rob a bank
2 prostitution
3 become a pool hustler
4 sell alot of sh!t on craigslist and ebay
5 find someone with a stinky primo, beat the sh!t out of them and take it

drop out of school and get a job at Burger King. Do everything except for that first part.
