Not really one favorite tricks but I love doing 360's, various footplants and long fakie lines, as much with a casette or a coaster. Oh yeah, 180 backward manual cab is a really funky trick ! (with coaster).

Added reply in a thread G sport MKIV guard warning 7/25/2015 9:12 AM

So it´s basically a new version of their g-land guard, but once again... it´s a spoke guard... Also by a general way, I don't see the point of full plastic guards, or steel + sleeve; why not simply buy full steel guards and being good for years of grinding ... more »

Added reply in a thread My forks 7/22/2015 9:51 AM

Even if you got all your spacers in, you still need a bit of space between the top of your fork and your stem (like 2mm). If the stem is on the top of the steerer tube without that space, you'll not be able to compress it because once your fork bolt ... more »

Yes 20" is the actual width of the rim, not with tyre included. Just look at the specs of the bsd tyre, the 2.25" version is 20.7" and the 2.4" is 20.9"

Added reply in a thread Headset issue 7/17/2015 1:13 AM

If everything is well greased and tighten there's no reason for it creaks, that's weird... You can still try another headset, a brand new, or simply one of your friends just to see if it still creaks. Then, if one headset is not creaking, buy a new one ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tire Sizing Need Help Please :( 7/16/2015 11:50 PM

Up from 2.25" to 2.3" is nothing, it depends alot on the brand, i had 2.25" bsd donnasqueak bigger than 2.3" primo lee dennis for example. About your flats, your back tyre seem to be the problem, not by it's size but because of the mininal "tread" on ... more »

Added reply in a thread 65 psi rated tire or 110 psi tire. Any difference if I usually run at 60 psi? 7/16/2015 3:11 AM

If you don't need extra pressure, not need spend extra cash i think. But maybe if you run 60 psi on a 60 psi tyre or 110 psi, the 110 will probably more handle gaps, but I'm not really sure because i don't run low pressure tyres, i like them pumped to ... more »

Added reply in a thread What color should I go for my bike 7/14/2015 10:37 PM

Your bike looks cool, if I was you the only thing I will change for an aesthethic reason is the tyres, i love tanwalls, but it looks weird with chrome rims. Also those xl grips are ugly and way too long.

Thank you. Before riding that cult chain, I was riding a KMC halflink who had snapped something like 8 times in two month, and since the cult, as I said, only one break, with a pretty intense riding and billions of kilometers with 2 years of going school ... more »

Added reply in a thread half link 7/11/2015 2:38 AM

I guess yes, the only way to know is to try.

Added reply in a thread half link 7/11/2015 2:23 AM

Yes you can. Technialy the link is supposed to stay like this.

But i have seen a lot of shadow interlock chains fall apart as you said (mine is a cult halflink).

Added reply in a thread Bsd frames? 7/11/2015 2:17 AM

No, it´s a cult half link (which is the exact same as the bsd just by looking at it) and it´s superstrong, I ride it since 4 years and i had only broken it once a few month ago. The weird noise while pedaling probably come from somewhere else, or maybe ... more »

Yeah BSD beverage and passenger frames are so sweet. I was riding a 21" beverage, recently up to the 21.5" passenger because I wanted to keep the same perfect geo with a longer tube. You had also ask some pictures, here's is one of my ride. (I can send

Yeah I understand what you say, I had personnaly experienced that from 74.5° to 75° and I love the 75° better because of that tiny bit more responsive so I guess it's the same deal when up to 75.5°. But by a more general way, i don't like anything on ... more »
