My first 3's over stairs was epic, I master the hop 3 since a long time, but I never had the balls to send it over stairs until a few month ago. Or simply yesterday, hyped to get back on a coaster, I made a good 180 gap over 5 long stairs. That was cool. ... more »

It´s true than 20" is also a standard for kids bike but kids don't ride with 2.4 tyres, so we can find 3 kind of 20" tubes, 20 x 1.50 --> 1.75" also some more bmx oriented tubes 20 x 1.75" --> 2.125" and finally some bmx specific tubes for huge ... more »

Are you stupid or just completely amnesic ? I just helped you about that in YOUR TOPIC I currently run 2.4" tyres and a brake I even had post a pic in your thread just go read it again. What I was saying in this one was one year ago. Don't bring back those old topics.

I'm like you and I try to learn barspins, first learn it by throwing it clockwise (your comfortable one) so you'll be able to do in straight line, hop, fakie, into and off grinds. But to throw it in rotation, you'll have to learn them unclockwise or ... more »

If that's only to avoid punctures a bigger tyre will not change anything. Try to wrap an old tube around your tube, and then you got a protection wall between your tyre and tube. Also big tyres just feels better, after a few combinasion try over the ... more »

Even if the Odyssey springfield has the best clearance ever (never tried personnaly but people says it fits) I would never recommend them to anyone because I don't trust those brake systems, same for the Flybikes springhanger. Nothing is better than

I ride a pair of 2.4" tyres with a flybikes manual brake, and I still got room (I'll post a pic later) so if you think you have enough room you can go for bigger tyres (around 5 mm more in height and width (~2/3 mm per side)). Also your chainstay lenght, ... more »

I don't know how was the lever you are speaking about , but their current lever has just the perfect shape, comfy with one finger or two (two for tricks) and not too close of the bar (for not crushing the other fingers who are keep one the bar). Is that

I ride the stranger fullguard sprocket since a year and half, holding up really well so I'm happy with it. The only bad thing is that it has only one spocket bolt hole, so it´s not the best in term of durability, but it´s thick, so it will not widen ... more »

Always thinked this springhanger brake system was shit. But flybikes do good brakes, I ride with a flybikes manual one (brake and lever) and it works perfectly. Try to contact flybikes, they should send you a new one.

Always imagine what can happen and what could go wrong, now 180's and grinds are some basic tricks with no risk at all while learning them on flat and grinding knee height ledges, not the same risks while doing them down a stairset or on a handrail.. ... more »

162 is short, you'll be able to put a few little spacers but not enough to run a gyro for example. Search for ~ 170 mm , I've seen some forks with 172. I personnally run a Mutiny Wands fork, which I had cut to run with 7mm of spacers without spacers ... more »
