Those are both race bikes, designed to be light and fast specifically, and aimed for the track. You can get away with SMOOTH riding at parks and trails, and VERY basic stuff on street without grinds or large drops. (So manuals, and bump jumps etc or ... more »

This is actually not true. Sometimes just the spots get you burnt out, or if your bike is running like crap, or even if you're just not feeling it that day. I have been riding longer than most kids on here have been out of diapers, and have more love ... more »

Get those dialed. 180s. Hop no footers, no handers, crankflips, learn some flatland, manual, nose wheelie, hang 5, the list goes on.

Goo Gone. Windex. I have a chrome frame and used Snowboard Wax remover.

This. If you stole it, you got nothing. If you earned it, tell them (and show them) the value of the bike and that you were bargain hunting. THEN if need be, offer to sell it. Then you make MORE money and can get other things YOURSELF, without asking ... more »

Try a different style of riding. If you usually ride street, try dirt or flatland? If you don't have brakes, get brakes? No pegs, more pegs? Front brakes? Coaster?

I had one, and the clutch springs were stupid if you pulled it apart, and everything I did to prevent damaging them didn't work. Sucked, because they didn't have replacements by the time I needed them (like 6 months after I got it). They were solid though. ... more »
Added reply in a thread Why do people hate Cult 12/18/2014 4:21 PM
Mine is 3 years old, and my first half link (Shadow Interlock 2) lasted 5 years, neither broke. Ever. WEEEEEE!!! But with Cult, I just don't care for the brand. Not really a hatred, but I don't find anything they have to be that special. Same with Fit. ... more »

Karl Poynter was the Signature Coaster guy for Shadow, however sources state that it was an Odyssey Reloader in a new shell. Sources that worked at Eastern and talked to him personally from what I hear. Seth may have been working on it, but Karl's was ... more »

What actually is wrong with it? If it was machined wrong, chances are good there are more with the same issue.

This. We have had lots of indoor parks come and go in Minnesota, despite being packed, so my advice is to go to the ones struggling, at the least you can say you went. I was super bummed when Madison 4 seasons closed, I actually liked it better than ... more »

Also, No-Footed Barspins. Landed my first one in like 04 or so. Good times. Coolest feeling having nothing on the bike with the bars spinning, and then grabbing on and landing it.

Cult Vans grips were similar to the "Classic Gum" in the photo above.

Ian Schwartz, Bruce Crisman, Seth Kimbrough were a HUGE push into Coasters. Then more dudes got into em. Lots of riders have been running coasters for years. I got my first one in like 2005. Odyssey Reloader.
Added reply in a thread Helmets 12/18/2014 11:16 AM
There are several threads about this with a lot of good info if you search "Helmets" But I used a Lazer Armor helmet, 290 grams, certified, lots of vents. I dig it.

Depends on what I am riding. For park, honestly a solid toboggan is a blast, but so are whips (back when I could land em) and truckdrivers still feel super cool to me. I love kickouts and bar to manuals a bunch too. Bar to tire taps. Street, probably ... more »
