Added reply in a thread Is street better for progression? 6/23/2016 2:28 PM

I go to parks to learn tricks. I often find its easier to learn stuff on smooth ledges/out of smooth transition, and then it's easy to apply them to the streets. But everyone is different, I'd say just ride whatever sounds like the most fun on that given ... more »

Added reply in a thread Invictus frame, good? What is it worth? 6/17/2016 10:56 AM

Looks to be made of Chromo/HiTen. It looks well-built. If it IS chromoly, I bet it would be a good freestyle frame.

Yes to the hubs. But for rims, the BSD Nasa rims are almost literally identical to Ribcages, but a tiny bit lighter and certainly cheaper. I've been on mine for a few months now, and although I haven't ever rode Ribcages, I can say that so far they hold ... more »

Added reply in a thread Villicus Prime 2 21' question. 5/26/2016 10:46 AM

I had a 13.5 cult and when I switched to my 13.5 volume, I had to remove 4 full links. Some companies measure things differently than others. For example, cult could have been measuring weld to drop out, volume could have been measuring center of bb ... more »

Half links are designed like poop and over time eat the teeth off your sprocket and driver. The only exception to this is the Interlock Supreme, which has cast links instead of stamped/bent ones. Full links are the way to go unless you're willing to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hub help (stranger ballast?) 5/20/2016 1:25 AM

I would get the Primo Remix v2. Same design as the Ballast, Mix, Match, and Remix, but with a 17mm axle and 14mm axle bolts. If you never want to break an axle again, look for a Gsport Ratchet hub. 20mm axle with 14mm bolts and lifetime warranty

Added reply in a thread Not improving at all 5/20/2016 1:20 AM

Took me 2 years to learn how to rotate 180, and another year to learn how to fakie from it. Majority of my riding career was spent hopping up and down curbs with a smile on my face. It's not about going out and doing tricks, it's about going out and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Another new person with tire questions. 5/19/2016 8:52 PM

What really gives you the cushion is the tires diameter, not as much so the width. But yes, a bigger tire does absorb more of the impact. A wider tire doesn't really do much other than give you more rolling resistance imo. I'm running 2.25 Donnasqueaks ... more »

Added reply in a thread Female Coasters 4/28/2016 6:33 AM

There's not much of a difference between male and shemale. The shemale still uses the same threaded hardware and axle as the male (which was what you don't want, correct?) Just uses a weaker bolt and a shorter axle. Only nice thing about it is that it ... more »

Added reply in a thread Free coaster question 4/27/2016 9:57 AM

Mine was doing this. It was because I had tightened my non drive side nut too much before tightening my drive side, causing the axle to sit off a little bit. It could also be the ball springs on the axle. I recommend taking everything apart, thoroughly ... more »

Exact same thing happened to me. Ordered a discontinued tire, never heard from them, made a thread on here, they emailed me offering me a new tire to delete my posts about them, I didn't, they continued bribing me with merchandise to remove my posts. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fuck the Subrosa Light 3/19/2016 1:02 PM

Buying is an option. If you don't like it, don't buy it. But I do feel that Subrosa does a very good job of using their money to support their riders, keep videos coming, keep new parts and colorways coming, etc. I can't imagine that running a bike company ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fuck the Subrosa Light 3/19/2016 12:46 PM

Yup that's how that works. Subrosa is taking advantage of the cheap wholesale stuff to make easy, less risky profit. Atleast the money will be supporting a good company
