I use salsas when I want some kick. Never been big on hot sauce.

You spelled it wrong in the title.

I do as far as brakes and pegs go. One week I'll have front and rears, the next none. Same for pegs, between 0 and 4 is common. Usually 2 though. I rocked a session without brakes recently, and they are going back on before my next session, gyro and ... more »

If you can't figure it out, I am sad for you.

Added reply in a thread Is this headset integrated or standard 1/24/2015 9:10 AM

Exactly, the cups protect the headtube a bit from ovalization. However if you rock a loose headset, it can cause issues in general, regardless of the headset type.

Added reply in a thread breaks? 1/24/2015 8:05 AM

Noise and vibration. Vibration can be bad on bikes, causing things to loosen. I would say that's it. Ride em, and occasionally check your parts for loose bolts etc, and you should be fine. Brakes always suck in snow. Disc brakes are about the only moderate ... more »

Added reply in a thread gyro binding? 1/24/2015 7:11 AM

It's possible your gyro flops a bit and rubs on the headset top cap or spacers. Watch what it does. Also if you take it off the bike, look to see if any paint/anodizing has been rubbed off. Gyro flop is when your cable tension is uneven, and the gyro ... more »

You guys shut down the state for like a dusting. (I work for a company based out of Richmond, and that site shuts down when it rains it seems haha) But seriously, we got a foot or so, then it melted, then we got half a foot, and it melted, then little ... more »

Dave Mirra 2 and Maximum Remix, 360 No handed barspin to table. Also when Stephen Murray had a solid run and then did a 360 Turndown flip at Gravity Games Dirt, and Kenan Harkin lost it and thought it was just a 360 flip. So good. That I can do, nothing ... more »

Added reply in a thread purge welded ! Thinking of getting this Lairdframes 1/23/2015 4:50 PM

From my college days it was used as you stated, to avoid contact with an oxidzer, not only to avoid rusting, but it was also used to aid in fewer impurities from the atmosphere (water particles etc) to get into the molten weld, creating pitting or weak ... more »

Haha it's SUPER hard to dent them because of the uber-thick tubing walls.

Went to an indoor park a buddy of mine works at and had some fun last weekend. Didn't really do anything new though. Rocked a brakeless session, and I am learning that I need to stop doing that. Brakes are fun.

Added reply in a thread been out of the riding game for about 3 years now what's new? 1/23/2015 6:58 AM

That one came and went in about 2003.

Added reply in a thread been out of the riding game for about 3 years now what's new? 1/23/2015 6:56 AM

Hard to make a freecoaster loud

Bigger bards do have a purpose, but when 10 year olds who are 4 foot 5 have 9 inch rise bars straight up and down and a 21" tt, something is a little off.

Added reply in a thread What are the grippiest brake pads? 1/20/2015 2:54 PM

This, and also make sure the brakes are not rubbing on the rims.

Added reply in a thread pet peeve 1/17/2015 8:09 AM

To answer OPS question, NOT HAVING THE CORRECT TOOL. DRIVES ME NUTS. I keep my tools in a bag, and recently managed to lose my 6mm allen. I have a multi tool for my road bike with one on it, BUT it is warped so it doesn't fit so well.

I have even more respect for you after that comment Ryan. Also to touch base with the fella saying he had the Nyquist toy, I still have mine floating around somewhere. I had many rad sessions on the Tech Deck ramps growing up. I should dig those out ... more »

Added reply in a thread Missing holes in Gsport Birdcage?.. 1/16/2015 4:40 PM

Keep it. It is a one off mistake, and someday it might be worth a few bucks. Not more than you paid, but a few bucks

Honestly, mistakes happen, this one is kinda weird. I have never heard of this type of issue in 15 years of riding.
