- Bike Checks
A lot of kids bought the lowest end completes and cried about how shitty the company was when parts broke. Thats one thing Ive seen a lot.
whats your budget? I have red bsd hubs laced to gsport birdcages, Everything looks mint except hubgaurds covering both front sides, and non/non drive sides.
Could be a stock seat off a complete bike , may be be wrong .
make sure ya have a rim strip in, Ive seen many people without them and clueless to it
It was posted that free internals were available to all Blind owners, new driver was supposed to have individual springs to each pawl.. Would be nice to see this update as I do feel the hub has huge potential. I most just use my Z or clutch for reliability ... more »
Shane told me he still does however, Ive seen him post about riding new wheels from sponsor and that had a cortex hub...so, its unclear.
Agreed, I only mention the Blind since I believe its the only hub where the pawls retract when you stop pedaling. I know another company copied this design but, I forget who. To bad Eclat never completed the updated version, hub had potential
Only option for something like this is a Blind hub, However, good luck finding working thats in perfect working order.
Chrome S&M Elevenz, brand new, mint condition, never used
Full bike listed is $300, def a good deal.
I ordered shadow vultus bars, tag said the were the old 13b bar . At times, companies will also use old packaging and /or re sticker over it. .probabaly what happened to you and this didnt update the packaging since thats all they prob had.
As you said it, its all "mind games" Riding the same bike with or without brakes is not going to make any difference at all in speed. If pawls made a difference in speed, then you wouldnt have elite hubs which had 6, over the common 3 and 4. Perhaps ... more »
Start small, and work your way down in tiny sections until you feel what is best. Your bars may not even be the problem, could be your technique that just needs more practice. Id say ride them first for some time since the rise is going to be a big difference ... more »
Pipe cutter . Something that looks like this, most hardware stores have them cheap. Its what I used on mine and friends bars, Took minutes to do http://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-Quick-Release-1-1-8-in-Tube-Cutter-80-772-111/204258904
No worries, put ya grips on and youll have that 8.8 instead of 8.75 rise

I saw that too! Dude was awesome!
Plenty of frames have this, its what metal does since there isnt any type of coating. Remember the raw Cult frames from years ago? They came straight out of the box with that because it didnt have clearcoat/paint.
You can also grind without any issues on your setup now. I run 4 pegs, lsd, left foot forward and Ive never had a problem with my sprocket side My switch and regular are equal
