Added reply in a thread Best Bike around $700 4/20/2015 3:22 PM

I have never heard of a Specialized Redline Sworks...and I worked for the biggest Specialize dealer in the nation. Must be a Specialized with some redline stuff. I would look for anything FULL CHROMOLY, double wall rims, and sealed bearings. Outside ... more »

Added reply in a thread Front brakes are fun 4/20/2015 3:08 PM

Old thread, but I posted it so I don't care. Check out some stuff with FRONT BRAKES by Tom Haugen. Super underrated rider. Super nice dude too. This one is all early 00's. There's some more recent stuff out there too.

I'm gonna try to heal up, and then film some stuff and add it to last years stuff and compile an old fart edit. Might put front stoppers on again.

Added reply in a thread Paint: Chrome to Black 4/20/2015 8:19 AM

Chrome is plated, so you would have to do a LOT of sanding. I would put a sticker down (one that is cut out letters that are on their own) and then spray the fork, clear it up, and then peel the sticker off for a cool effect.

Small numbers = steeper = potentially twitchy front end and easier popping into nose tricks. Larger number = more relaxed front end, not quite as easy to get into nose stuff.

Bummer. They make some good stuff. But again, so far it is all rumors. Who knows what actually is going down? Maybe Bob was sick of some crap going on?

I was joking. But it shouldn't matter who rides what. Just go ride.

This. I like how there are like 9 other posts before the actual answer.

Added reply in a thread 48 spoke wheel any1? 4/18/2015 10:30 AM

Unless you are hopping off roofs, not necessary. I weigh 257 lbs and have 3 cross 36 spoke wheels. I true them maybe once every couple of months.

Sounds like they don't know what they are talking about. And they may not know how to work on a bike. I haven't had to move my wheel in months. My chain never comes loose. Brakes always work, and I haven't had tire issues like that in about 5-6 years. ... more »

I do, but clearly you don't know what you wrote in a post 2 minutes earlier. " My and my buddies put it together" that right there tells me it is a HODGEPODGE of parts, NOT A COMPLETE. Do you know what a complete is? Like in the BMX world, skate world, ... more »

Nah in all seriousness, it doesn't matter what one runs and what another runs. We all ride bikes. Why THE HELL DOES ANYONE GIVE A CRAP WHO RIDES WHAT? I get harassed for brakes all the time because I am one of about ... more »

Forks may have an integrated race. If they do, you don't need one. If they don't, you need one that matches your headset. It comes with the headsets when you buy a new one.

Added reply in a thread The Promotion of Drug Use in BMX 4/18/2015 8:53 AM

This is actually a very valid point sir. Well said. You raise a good point in that removing the "cool factor" can help with kids, and also removing the taboo aspect as well. Open discussion is key. If kids have questions, they should be able to talk ... more »

Added reply in a thread The Promotion of Drug Use in BMX 4/18/2015 7:53 AM

How is there no context with a totally unrelated thread with a totally unrelated subject? And when have I told people WHAT to put in edits? I said that I don't think displaying drug use is necessary, nor do I believe marketing it to be more "relateable" ... more »

Added reply in a thread Stabilizing a broken ankle suggestions. 4/18/2015 7:02 AM

Take a few weeks off and do as little as possible. AND GET THE DAMN SURGERY. Seriously. If you are old enough to have a few beverages, get the surgery and enjoy the first half of summer relaxing, learn to film, dial in the bike, and come back stronger. ... more »

Probably bent from being too wide. Honestly the wider they are the more leverage you have to bend the hell outta them.

I haven't had issues with my Demolition Rogue.

Added reply in a thread custom scooter looking to trade for bmx 4/18/2015 6:47 AM

This. To me this seems like it could be a stolen item you are trying to unload. Especially not knowing what parts are on it when it is clearly not a complete.
