Any gsport, an odyssey 7ka or hazard lite, shadow corvus or stun, animal RS, primo balance are all good rims I only know for a fact that the RS, stun, and corvus come in purple, though the others are super good too. For the front hubs I'd say get the ... more »

The thing is I don't use pedal pressure when 180ing. many people have said that's the reason but it's not.. Here, let me upload a video.

First post! Well, here's my story: I have been riding for about a year now, more or less. Rode cassette all that time and just a backstory, I learned 180s 5 months ago, and I was starting 360s, landed a couple. Also, the highest thing i've 180ed down
