Reply to "signature" parts 10/19/2014 8:46 AM

It's a case of choosing standover height, bottom bracket height, head tube angle, seat tube angle, and the length of the chain stay. Majority of frames are near enough identical and many are made in the same factories.

Buy stink bombs and throw them in.... But nah, seriously. I always go riding during school hours or late at night.

Reply to Eastern Bikes = Ordered Into Receivership 10/2/2014 1:49 PM

My first cassette hub was an Eastern Pro, too this day I still hold it as the best hub I've ever ran, shame I couldn't get hold of another.

I'd also like to see the death of oil slick. The reemergence of odyssey limited edition colours like the old camo 41thermal forks. All these new budget brands to die and larger companies to produce affordable completes for kids (sub $150). Some quality ... more »

I'd like to see less catalogue parts and more innovation.

Reply to Stem Size Help/ 8/28/2014 3:28 PM

I've recently switched up to 21" and I bought a 53mm stem, I couldn't handle the extra 2mm so I switched back to 51mm and it feels much more comfortable.

Those straight inner tubes fly made never really kicked off

Kids are easily influenced and follow any trend. Hating is cool and they will blindly follow anyone who stirs the boat up. Hopefully this will allow people to think for themselves and make decisions based on what THEY like.

New thread Web Videos 7/20/2014 4:01 PM

We see thousands of web videos a year and I for one watch a lot more. What do you guys like in a video? What do you guys hate? I like a video which is paced well, has good riding, and a decent song to match (the last part is hard for me as when I make ... more »

I'll refer this to our technical guys and try get this sorted ASAP. Quick questions, what phone are you using, what browser, and what version of the phone software is installed?

Reply to Things The Industry Needs To Agree On 6/27/2014 8:37 AM

Some really good ideas Broken, however with the tyre problem you need to factor the rim into the equation as some rims cause tyres in flat fatter or thinner than another rim (from experience). - I think 15mm hex heads with 8mm allen key slots should ... more »

I don't hate them, I applaud them, they're the ones keeping the sport going. We need as many kids as possible to buy expensive new parts to keep BMX strong.

Reply to Pet hates 6/24/2014 4:44 PM

With the whole "how much did your bike cost" I sometimes joke and say I stole it to see the kids reactions. Definitely have to agree with a few people with the whole "street or die/park or die" attitude. I ride ledges and I ride quarter pipes. It's all ... more »

New thread Pet hates 6/24/2014 5:41 AM

What do you guys find annoying in BMX? For me it would have to be people who turn up to a spot/park and don't even say hi.

Demolition momentum tyres are the lightest non folding tyres, i can barely tell the difference.

I landed my first tailwhip when Parkway Drive came on shuffle and scared the shit out of me.

Reply to Serious Filmers of Vital 5/23/2014 10:04 AM

Yeah, I guess in the age of web videos being so frequent, most people aren't bothered. People are happy to watch a 15 second instagram video of resi riding. Now that is lame! If it were a DVD I'd expect everything to be 100% on point, but for a web video. ... more »
