My first real bike was a WTP trust 2010, and back then, there wasn't hubs with switchable drive side on their completes (it appears a few years after). And if someone competent has already take your hub appart to check if it´s possible, this is the confirmation ... more »
Added reply in a thread Is riding with more slack on a freecoaster better? 11/20/2015 11:36 PM
I run the real max slack, with no tiny washers, and the big one flipped. At first I was like you, curious about how it feels with different numbers of washers, I had took one off, than another, than all. That was better, smoother, less to care about ... more »
Added reply in a thread Anyone ride allen bolt hubs? 11/20/2015 8:31 AM
It's all about leverage while tightening the wheel. You just cannot have the same force with an allen key than with a pipe key and a good leverage. Also the front wheel subbish a lot less stress than the back, and also is sitted at the end of the dropout, ... more »
Added reply in a thread Chase Hawk Tires??? 11/19/2015 1:24 PM
Never rode this tyre personnally but as I expected, people says it grips really well once it's a bit broken. Now i think if the ground is too dusty, the lack of agressive line on the tire can make it slippy. So I think it can make a supergreat rear tyre, ... more »

With the 14 mm format, I guess you are speaking of axles. Just know one thing, a hollow tube is always more resistant than a full tube (to avoid denting after impact). And more you go for a larger diameter, more the tube can be thin and still as strong ... more »

So you had paid 15 $ to send back your broken pedals. This is stupid, for zero dollars off your pocket, colony could send you a new pair (it's only pedals, not a frame or something). Because for 15 $ you can buy new pedals....

Yes for that height, I think you can ride from 21" to 21.5" and more. It depends of how you want your bike to feel, if you want stability, go longer, if you search for twichyness in a street tech scenario, go shorter, that´s logical. And because everyone ... more »

The BSD passenger feels just like perfect the frame to me. Probably not the "perfect" frame for anyone, like any frame, but it can suits to a lot of differents riders. I am 6'1' and coming from a 21" I wanted something bigger (which reduce the choice ... more »

If you also want to build a 20" bike, this is what you should know about geometry. - for 6' height go for a 21.5" top tube frame a least, go bigger if you want but that's not necessary. Also when you want a frame over 21" the choice is drastically reduced,

Okay, hope it suits you. Have fun with it. Also, just for you to know, you can ride 20" wheels and being tall, just have to buy adapted parts, like long frames and big bars. As an example I'm 6'1 (200 lbs) and I ride a 21.5" top tube with a 8.75" bar

Yeah the halflink chain stretch more due to the shape of each link but after running a cult halflink chain for 4 years (only broken once) I decided to get a new one, so a BSD half link which is the same, when I put both chains side to side to cut the ... more »

I'm 6'1 and I ride a 8.75" not that big but I also run a high rise topload (33mm) and 7mm of spacers, finding the perfect height can be a tiny 2 mm spacer difference, the best is to try different heights and see how it feels better for you. But if I ... more »

I had this coaster for a while, and it was working great, in fact, it still work perfectly inside. But the hub shell is dead, the spokes holes are fucking widen on 1/3 of the wheel (one side) (it happened after a crash) so it's not rideable anymore and ... more »
Added reply in a thread Best stem top load ? 11/8/2015 8:05 AM
Hello frenchman. The point of a topload stem is to get your bar higher. On a stem, you got two settings, the offset (48, 50, 52mm...) the shorter, means a quick handling and the big means a more stable feeling. and the rise, measured from the stem base ... more »
