Grease where metal touches metal and any moving parts, and lube your chain.

With all the hardware you would have at the joints it would weigh more and be more likely to fail upon impact.

One piece cranks are foreged and bend easily, hence why they come on kids bikes and department store crap. If you are referring to the quill style stems, they are not as strong. Plus they require a threaded headset as well.

Are you struggling to find someone else's images on google for this? A bolted together frame would be a TERRIBLE idea.

I never have owned Vans and always had plenty of grip. I rocked Adios for a long time, and more recently some Osiris shoes and some Etnies. I could see them wearing down with 100% dirt riding and having grit and stuff in your shoes, but even when I rode ... more »

A shovel and your own area is always best, so you can make what YOU want, and then you don't piss others off by changing/damaging their trails. What I ALWAYS suggest is going to local parks and meeting other dudes and asking in person, as then you can ... more »

Paper mache and plastic? There would be no machining for that, because the bits would catch and rip it apart. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/frame-materials.html Why don't you read a little more about materials before you try to troll more? At least act ... more »

www.zazzle.com They can. And shirts, phone cases, coasters, all kinds of stuff.

Dude you thought plastic/paper mache would be a great bike material. Horse crap > your knowledge level about materials

I have a 6plus and got it around 2 1/12 months ago. So far so good. I like most aspects of it, battery life DESTROYS all of my androids by a FULL DAY. Ultimately if you plan modify your phone and other files in it, Android is the way to go. If you just ... more »

No it actually wouldn't shatter the bike. It would be a lot more harsh to the rider. But for the record, if you are entry level (and considering a Specialized P1 I imagine you are), probably going to be a while (few years minimum) before you are doing ... more »

*ahem* DJ bikes can handle speed and air well, BUT don't necessarily discount the BMX when it comes to big air. Honestly you could do either. Now if we are getting more into the Slopetyle where dudes rock anything from DJ to downhill setups, a BMX might ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best Bottom Bracket? 8/26/2015 9:45 AM

Actually they are not dead weight. The spacer is in the middle to prevent overtightening of your bearings which will cause stiffness, drag, and ultimately wear and failure on the bearings. While you CAN get away without, you risk bolts loosening because ... more »

You do realize the Road bike community laughs at BMX anyway? Not to mention that guy HAND MADE THAT BIKE HIMSELF out of Carbon Fiber. Your Ti setup all cut up and drilled would not be safe or rideable. This road bike has been ridden thousands of miles. ... more »

He means a ton of people have the same looking bike and it doesn't really stand out in any way. A lot of completes look very similar too.
