I have seen many shops abandon bmx over the years. I work at a LBS in san diego, and i go out of my way to stock as many bmx bikes and parts as is reasonable, because most of our customers are commuters. We put together jams and stuff to promote the ... more »

it's safe for me to assume that if they make a hub guard for it, it should be peg-worthy...

Added reply in a thread More upsweep? 11/23/2013 10:54 PM

Yes! i have tree moto bars 8.5" w/ 4 degree upsweep, feels real "secure" and "locked in" if you can dig it... having the moto bars w/ a subrosa forever top-loader makes it super stable.

tree bar ends with them is a major bonus! great, lightweight ... more »

if you have your chain on TOO TIGHT, it may cause this. Also, if you are putting ANY fresh half-link chain on a well used driver/ sprocket, you will wear them out faster. I have found installing the chain with a fresh sprocket always helps, also when your driver teeth are totally pointy, the driver should be replaced. Hope this helps!

Added reply in a thread Mutiny Lifted stem?? 3/31/2013 12:38 AM

i have the Mutiny Lifted frontload v2, it puts my 8.5 bars EXACTLY where i want them, and in 3 months has not come loose yet. If someone tells you that you need a lighter stem, they are weight weenies and should be racing instead of freestyling!

solid complete!


The Good: Hubs are great looks super sharp light enough for a bike at it's price all sealed bearings

The Bad: pinch-bolt cranks bars have weird geometry, and they eventually bent


Taking my 2010 WTP TRUST airborne at memorial skatepark in san diego, CA

I have a 2010 model i purchased used last year. it was still in like new condition, so i grabbed it.

This is the nicest STOCK bike i have ever owned. I have since changed almost all of the components on it to make it my own, but i havent really broken anything, except the bars got a little bent. the wheels had to get trued a couple times, but I jump on them every day around the city. I use the bike primarily as a commuter, and it rides about 50-70 miles EVERY WEEK

The biggest plus for me was the hubs, they are running 3 years strong and i have not had to adjust them or replace a bearing even once. same goes for the bb bearing and headset. you really cant ask for much more out-of-the-box. The pinch bolt cranks are kinda heavy & look cheap, but hey- you can buy your own overpriced, underweighted cranks if you want.

I notice a lot of people calling some of these completes "heavy" - I would assume they are little kids who cant lift the weight or think that everything good is light. I challenge anyone to find a bike at the price of the WTP trust that is lighter AND stronger.  This bike is no toy, it is ready to shred!  If you think its too heavy go buy a redline carbon fiber bmx racing bike- then jump it off a 10-stair and see what happens!

Added a comment about product review not a very good bike 3/31/2013 12:14 AM

it weighs 25lbs! if you think thats heavy, you have never ridden a 90's bike! I dont own this model, i have a WTP trust, and with all my upgraded parts it is barely under 25 lbs. it is light enough and plenty tough- besides, lighter bikes with sealed hubs etc COST MUCH MORE!

you will have better luck next time if you get the shadow INTERLOCK CHAIN TOOL, Or if your local shop doesnt have it, they should have a Park tools commercial grade 1/8 pitch tool. pretty much everything else wont work (as you noticed)
