Benny L wheelset, Animal tire that is replacing the ASM. Other than that, less coasters, better seat options and more rumors about S&M doing cranks.

i use the 2.5 bossless ones (the ones in the vid you posted.) when i was installing them, i also had to muscle them through. they have stayed strong since. i wouldnt worry too much, but like everyone said, make sure you use the spacer.

im not good at all the ratio/conversion stuff, not sure if this helps but ive used 28/9 forever and i love it. i used to use 175mm cranks but ive since switched to 165mm and noticed a difference. dude got on my bike and said "this feels like 27/9".

Figured I'd add to the props, I bought chrome big 4s from hatebreeder and had no issues whatsoever. Shipped ultra fast. Legit dude.

I use a 2.30 Fit T/A in the front and it's superb. I carve hard, fast, low fakies and it has never slipped. I'm pretty much street only. I use the all black one and it's just fine, some say it's less grippy than the gum version, but I haven't had any ... more »

Reply to This is too good 7/14/2014 12:21 PM
pic is funny lol. nothing wrong with coasters, all preference. all its going to take is one good/crazy edit with a "popular" rider switching back to a cassette and the revolving door will move again.

Reply to S&M Fathead bars/new grips 7/7/2014 10:38 AM
Can't really go any lower on the bars. Maybe around $40-$42 ish. Shipping bars can be a pain, so I don't want to get killed on shipping cost. Sorry for the late reply to the earlier post, these are in really really good shape. Weren't ridden hard, I ... more »

Any bike that has the word "stock" listed in it's parts is in no way qualified to be sold for over $1000. I would rethink this if I were you because the members of this forum are going to swarm like a pack of wolves just to give you reasons why this ... more »

Not a bad edit. Dude definitely has skills. Still a ways to go though. Keep it up! My two pieces of advice 1. Make sure not to OD on the barspins 2. No mac miller in edits ever ever ever ever

Just boxed up the Mac and it's on it's way to you. You don't even need to send the reaper frame, just the pic is enough for me.
