Added reply in a thread Your preferred gear ratio, and 24-9 1/2/2017 6:59 AM

Do whatever you want but it's not necessary to switch to a 24 tooth to compensate the loss of leverage, except if you got some serious leg muscle issue lol, good luck to find a 24 tooth too. The only downside to me riding a 28t is I can't do oppo crookeds, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Peg length 1/2/2017 5:26 AM

Nope. They're useless on rails for double pegs grind, because you'll grind at the closest point possible of your pegs, even on the guard, round rails feels so good with nice round shaped guards.

I do alot of slow ass jiberrish tricks, but I love to going fast too, and even if 25x9 is supposed to be better for acceleration, I don't like doing 50 crank turns to accelerate only a little bit, I just prefer a 28x9 gearing and use some muscle, do ... more »

Added reply in a thread Your preferred gear ratio, and 24-9 1/1/2017 9:51 PM

I ride 28/9 since years and it's perfect, the good balance between acceleration and speed. I retried a 25/9 setup not so long ago to do oppo crookeds but it felt weak and weird. One day I'll try a 27t to get that perfect 3.0 ratio, but those aren't really ... more »

Added reply in a thread Peg length 1/1/2017 9:27 AM

The classic lenght is 4", now with tech street riding and grinds like crookeds you can find some pegs up to 4.5" I like some 4.5"s on the back, they help me for my feeble hards, on the front I run classic 4" I don't see the point of longer ones, even ... more »

What I meant by stripped is this :

The inner alloy was litterally eat by grinding forces, so it rubs the bearing and on the other side the axle was not flush with the guard, this just cannot happen with the shadow hub, super simple press fit, ... more »
Added reply in a thread Front wheel build, spokes confusion. 1/1/2017 9:00 AM

They said 186 because that's what 90% of front wheels use. Both would work, spoke have some adjustability, this is why they grow up by 2 mm not one. Better having spokes a bit too short than a bit too long tho.

Added reply in a thread How high and low do bottom brackets go? 12/30/2016 11:38 AM

Tell me if I'm wrong but a 11.5" BB means 1.5" inches above axles + plus one theorical half wheel so + 10" = 11.5". But we all ride some 21" wheels so the real measurement would be more around 12". It do changes the feel of a frame, I loved my pair of ... more »

I had ride 11.5" since forever and I just switched to 11.75" and shorter chainstays to see how it feels. It felt fucking weird the first minutes, like lifted up the ground literally but I'm getting used to it, it do spins a bit easier but the frame make ... more »

Added reply in a thread What the heck happened?!? 12/29/2016 3:13 PM

Lol, the tyre wasn't properly installed in the rim. When pumping tyres, start pumping to around 10 psi, just to round it up, Then check the line on the tyre close to the rim sidewalls, on both sides. if it's nice and centered, start pumping for real.

Why don't you just buy some fresh spokes and nipples and lace it yourself ? About the screw up alloy guards, well... they are good until they're not, I had some on a colony hub, it ends up stripped, the inner part near the bearing get sharp, rub a little

Remove every whasher, the peg act like one, don't put one inside the peg either, the more bolt inside the hub, the better.

I run around 70 - 75 I don't like my tyres too hard or too soft, plus I love to do bumpjumps, I've bent some rear rim sidewalls letting the tires unpumped for too long. That don't bother me if the front is around 60 for softer landings. If the rear goes ... more »

I love a good old 360, on a gap or dipped on a jump (even if I don't ride as much jumps as I would like to). Popped 180's with rear wheel higher and half cab feels good too downstairs. I also love any kind of grinds, I a currently learning to do some ... more »

More leverage, it's that simple. Imagine a slammed stem vs a stem on top of 50 mm of spacers, which one is stronger ? (which setup put more/less stress on th streerer tube ?)
