Added reply in a thread Bike shop scams 12/5/2016 7:44 PM

As I stated before, they are a business and need to make money to stay afloat. Shops don't make a ton, their typically highest margins are labor. As to them trying to "sell you stuff that doesn't really need to be replaced", can you provide a LEGIT example? ... more »

Added reply in a thread Small predicament with chain alignment 12/2/2016 6:54 PM

Just ride it as it is and if there are issues, tackle them later. It's actually really hard to get perfect alignment these days with the GIANT tires and whatnot. You would almost need an offset BB to make it happen.

Here's my only other bike. Charge Cooker Maxi 1. It's a good time on any terrain, but I don't ride it enough, so it might be sold.

Added reply in a thread Should I Change my Frame 10/28/2016 5:53 PM

Standover actually does factor in the handling, especially if you have a short seat post, your seat WILL be lower, and if you ever touch it even with your legs for barspins, or leverage when in the air for style points, you WILL notice. I'd keep what ... more »

Good luck man, I've got the same wheel with a diff guard and can't get 120 OBO for it.

My two Federal frames over the last 4 years or so have been good (Lacey and Twilight), my Drop Bars and Liquid forks were good too. That's about all my experience is.

Cut the front half off, and make a wall mounted lamp

Added reply in a thread What do you think about my bike 10/17/2016 7:21 PM

Nah, preference, but when learning barspins, a seat to pinch is SO helpful. For whips I have done em high seat and low seat. I disagree with your remove the brakes comment, purely because he is new at riding, why not try em out for a while and learn ... more »

Don't have your bars so far forward. Try bringing them back a bit. You are VERY stretched out over the bike so when you level you have to lean REALLY far forward, throwing the front wheel down.

This. Elstran is ridiculous, and all he cares about is a good time. I've seen him hammer out some nuts moves, but more often than not he is doing goofy lines and weird stuff that doesn't make sense to anyone else. Change your setup in a free way-lose ... more »

It's not a Giant. Send the serial to Fly and see what they tell you.

Added reply in a thread Opinions on this BMX 10/17/2016 3:41 PM

That's not true at all actually. Full links stretch mainly at the pins and rollers, the holes the pins sit in over time ovalize, making the chain longer, thus STRETCHING. Half link plates are designed in such a way that they stretch the plates and somewhat ... more »

Added reply in a thread What can cause a freecoaster to "lock up"??? 10/17/2016 1:54 PM

Could also be something some idiot hodgepodged and swapped RHD to LHD (or LHD to RHD) and the threaded clutch ring loosened out and locked it up. A buddy of mine managed that one like 6 years ago.

Sounds like a good reason to press charges on the skaters and get them arrested for assault. BOOM. Criminal record = harder to get jobs etc. Also depending on how bad his injuries were could lead to a felony-which if they are over 18 means they are about ... more »

They are 6061 aluminum alloy, rather than chromoly steel. I stopped doing crank arm grinds a LONG time ago, so they don't really apply to me anymore. I only really did them for a few years back in like 2004-2007 or so, and mine were different than what ... more »
