Do we need to hold your hand with everything you do

Added reply in a thread Good All Around Bike? 5/25/2016 8:25 AM

Sunday makes the best complete bike out there but its a whooping $1000 compared to what you could get. Geometry wise its a good all around frame not too short and not too long. Compared to mtb a $1000 bmx bike is bombproof compared to a $1000 mtb.

All the spokes every company uses are from the same company, they're just rebranded. If you want good spokes get DT swiss champion spokes with the prolock nipples. Expensive yes but theyre the strongest you can get out of a spoke. Any chromoly rear hub ... more »

Giant (mtb brand) heavy duty tubes and danscomp tire liners are bomb proof it would cost about $25 but you won't need to spend money on tubes for a long time. Think of the money saved over time because you spent 25 on a good tube set up once

I ride a heavy duty tube with a tire liner in both wheels. Haven't had a flat in two years

If you want the g sport hub you can get an odyssey antigram hub which is basically a ratchet hub but lighter

Supporting your local companies is sweet. I ride an a Fit Bike Co frame and parts and it makes me feel sweet because they're local. I'd get the verde because both the bikes are comparable quality/spec wise. It also sounds like you want the verde more ... more »

Added reply in a thread The problem with Sunday 5/18/2016 4:37 PM

Sunday makes great parts. They make the strongest frame in BMX. The complete bike you have isn't one of their top of the line completes so its expected that parts break as you get better (talking about the front hub those are usually one of the first ... more »

Another good article explaining what you just asked http://www.schwalbetires.com/tech_info/rolling_resistance#why

Big tires with low pressures will give you more traction with the ground. Also more cushion on those drops Edit: here are some great articles explaining wider tires http://www.fitwellbikes.com/blog/2015/3/12/wider-is-better http://www.bikeroar.com/articles/why-you-must-run-wider-tires-on-your-road-bike ... more »

I think if you want to see more results try and tighten up your diet since you're already getting a good amount of exercising from your riding.

Added reply in a thread New Cranks 5/11/2016 8:27 AM

the BSDs should be solid, BUTTTTT Odyssey thunderbolts are the one stop shop for cranks. Got mine 2 years ago used (the person who owned them was a fairly hard rider) and they're still going strong for me to this day.
