Added reply in a thread Older Riders! 12/1/2016 8:48 PM

Early 30s, been riding off and on since the mid 90s. I remember trashing the bars on my Huffy and begging my dad for some sweet bmx bars, but he came home with some freakin ape hangers he found. I was mad until my birthday came and there was a shiny ... more »

Added reply in a thread Skaters... are egos 11/14/2016 8:02 PM

Ive had scooter kids yell in rage when I crowded their Human Centipede train. But skaters never have a problem. Self entitled scooter kids that learn flips in the foam pit then come to the park to do flyouts everywhere while their fat sidekicks film. ... more »

I ran single wall on my trail bike front wheel. It may need trued more often but would probably never bend too bad to ride. Unless you bail lots of 720s over spine, should be fine.

Added reply in a thread What does your bike weigh? 11/14/2016 6:57 PM

Probably 26 or so, half pegs n brakes. Thats light Imo. Coming from midschool and dirtbikes, I like the 'skateboard' feel of a lighter bike since Im not in the best shape and dont thrash like I used to. Titanium hardware, race tubes, thats me. Why? Because ... more »

Added reply in a thread short or long stem 5/16/2016 8:23 PM

Longer stems arent noticeably slower, it just changes the balance a bit. Basically moving your bars forward without having to rotate the sweep. Been running a 57 w/ 35mm forks. Works for me. Barspins would look old school wobbling around in slow motion,.if ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bar width 4/16/2016 7:40 PM

I ran tiny Castillo bars back in the day, i wanna say 24". Like 6.5" rise. When i got back into riding, all the bars were too wide for brake levers. Eventually got my 4piece Federals down to 28" even, its almost a perfect sweet spot between the the 2 ... more »

Added reply in a thread How do i remove rust from frame? 12/7/2014 5:07 PM

The best way to get it off without changing the finish of the bare metal is to use Naval Jelly or any phosphoric acid product. It'll eat your fingernails off so just dont make a mess and make sure clean it all up. A little goes a long way. U might ask ... more »

I have similar problems. I always grouped it as a mix of other things. Cant ride most street because a bump here, or a slope there. crooked edges,etc. Its easier to do a 180 over a line on the ground that over nothing.. The environment affects the riding ... more »

I tell people I dont speak english, or cant read it. They get soo mad. The younger generation expects to get shot from any and all smartassery, back then we gave all the old people shit who gave us shit, and our friends cheered us on

Added reply in a thread I feel stupid, but... 9/13/2014 2:48 PM

Sanding/filing between the peg n dropout will help the most, if youre too cool for a chain tensioner that is. If a company sold pegs with knurled ends, I bet itd catch on. You wouldnt buy un-knurled bars would you?
