Added reply in a thread Quad Whips 2/27/2017 2:41 AM
Crazy trick, but ugly as fuck, single whips are cool, double whips are cool, triples and over just looks disgusting. Style over tricks, it makes me think about one of Larry Edgar's run at simple session, super flowish, going faster and higher than anyone ... more »
Added reply in a thread plastic or metal pegs??? 2/20/2017 1:01 AM
It's a cool grinding setup, you can do fast feebles and sparkles and some long smiths and toothpick on the same rough curb (without the faceplant fear) And the good news is front plastic sleeves wears out slow even while grinding rough stuffs (unlike ... more »
Added reply in a thread 21 vs 20.5 TT? 2/19/2017 6:45 PM
Go for the 21" if you are more into fast and smooth riding than being a tech wizard. Longer tube means stable bike because of the longer total wheelbase and the added room who gives a less cramped position, so more comfort and stability. and 21" x 2.54 ... more »

The famous pasta technique... lol I tried it once with some hard rubber grip, for the science I guess... it actually worked pretty good.
Added reply in a thread Frustrating Slippery Grips?! 2/17/2017 2:57 AM
Try the eclat bruno grip (or eclat grips in general), since I tried them, I just keep buying, them, these are long, thin, durable and super grippy ! I precise I never really had hand slipping problems before, except bsd grips which are super slippery ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cassette VS Freecoaster 2/16/2017 3:09 PM
I'm 100% a coaster rider, I love riding backwards, once mastered, the freecoaster brings so much options (which is why I ride 4 pegs too), freecoaster fullcab is one of my favorite trick, half cabbing down stairs feels good, also backward manuals, fakie ... more »
Added reply in a thread BSD 14 MM HUB 2/15/2017 7:06 AM
Yeah of course it can't be true for any setup and the only way to be sure is to calculate, or build the wheel... I was considering things with a double wall rim with spoke holes disalined (which most of us ride) and laced with a 3 cross, you can add ... more »
Added reply in a thread BSD 14 MM HUB 2/13/2017 11:00 PM
I'm pretty sure you need some 184 (I got one of these hub laced to a colony rim) Also spoke lenght doesn't vary much, generally you would need 184 for a cassette, 182 for a coaster or a mix of both if the hub flanges are not the same height. And for ... more »
Added reply in a thread Barspin 2/11/2017 7:15 PM
The only "must have" trick is the bunny hop, that way you can do all the tricks you want. Ride for your pleasure first. I ride since years and I never did a single barspin or a whip which are "absolute must have tricks", I'll learn bars one of these ... more »

Added reply in a thread Rookie question flat tire 2/11/2017 12:57 AM
It should be fine, if not, get a flat repair kit and paste a patch inside your tyre where the nail passed through. I did it once and it saved my tyre, I'm still riding it.
Added reply in a thread High Tire Pressure For Street 2/7/2017 5:17 AM
I ride mostly street, tyres pumped around 75 psi, for the same reason as you, it feels fast & solid. I like a bit lower pressure on front for extra cushion a on hard landings. Also, I weight 200 lbs and love doing bump jumps, so low pressure + bump ... more »
Added reply in a thread Wtp zodiac 2017 or other? 2/2/2017 3:28 AM
The zodiac is a great bike, and if the geometry seems perfect to you, just go for it. But for that much money, I agree with the custom option, I never really saw the point of higher end completes (900 bucks !). I remember my first real bike was wethepeople ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pedals with big platform 1/30/2017 12:47 AM
The eclat AK pedals are super wide, and they don't spin much because there's no bearing in them, and the pedal bodies are left/right switchables which is cool if you grind more one side, but these are expensive. A lot cheaper, I love the BSD pedals, ... more »
