I have them on my bermuda. They do their job and keep my wheel in line. I like them mostly because they make setting chain tension really easy.

Hey Ryan! I wanted to say that I look up to your riding a lot, you always seem to be having fun doing your own thing whice is refreshing given that it seems like all the young kids do the same tricks and are always worried about what'she "cool." That ... more »

Caustic soda crystals are sodium hydroxide whice is a base, not an acid. Also you can add some vinegar to the solution before disposing of it to neutralize the base. Good write up but people really need to be careful when doing this since the base is ... more »

Transitions skatepark in dearborn is fun as is modern skatepark so those are also worth a look and might be closer than zero. The three parks I ride the most in the winter are transitions, zero and modern. I think theyre all pretty fun.

Added reply in a thread WHAT makes a good street frame. 1/5/2015 9:12 AM

I usually pick a light frame that has the geo I want. I'm 6ft so I like a long 21.25tt and a relatively short rear end (13.5). I also wanted a little tighter steering so I got a 75 degree ht angle. Finally I run a gyro so removable 990 mounts and gyro ... more »

Added reply in a thread How the heck do i run front brakes 12/31/2014 8:18 PM

These questions tell me that you might not be ready for front brakes.... You'll need new forks with 990 mounts. Usually forks that have 990 mounts will also have a hollow bolt to route the cable. I recommend the Odyssey f25 forks because they're pretty ... more »

how are you liking the demolition vulcan brakes?

Added reply in a thread anyone with breaks? 12/24/2014 3:20 PM

I think that the compound in clear brake pads will wear away the chrome on a chrome rim; that's probably why you shouldn't run them with a chrome rim. Stick to black pads with chrome rims. That's what I run and it works out great. For brakes get: Whatever ... more »

Condense it more; you need to improve the editing. Right now it looks like a boring home video some random dude shot. There was too much fluff that was uneccessary and uninteresting. Also pick more interesting camera angles. Its ok its just your first ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dilemma. What the fuck do I do? **UPDATE** 11/30/2014 5:38 PM

Make sure that the bead of the tire is centered in the rim. The center of the rim should be the lowest spot so doing so can make it easier to pull tires off. Also, use more than 1 tire lever at a time to make pulling off the tire easier. Usually I'll ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sandblasting 6/4/2014 5:14 PM

If you sandblast aluminum you do not have to paint it and can leave it raw. Aluminum doesn't rust like steel does which is why it does not always need to be painted. If you sandblast steel (chromoly etc.) you will have to paint it or else it will rust ... more »

Go with friends if you can, it'll make you feel more comfortable. Also, don't give up. Everyone starts somewhere and not everyone progresses at the same speed.
