Added reply in a thread Smiths are top heavy 8/18/2015 9:53 PM

Going back to basics, I find that smiths are done usually like double pegs. You'll go at the grind with appropiate speed from a VERY slight angle if necessary, and then as soon as you hop, you want to aim your entire front peg on and suck the rear up, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fakie direction question. 8/18/2015 9:48 PM

Yeah, indian givers require a mandatory fix. I'm pretty sure ALL goofy-footed riders start off as indian givers. I hated it, not to mention learning 180's the two tire way was terrible being goofy footed, as you can't kick the back end out properly. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Weight saving (they all add up) 8/18/2015 9:27 PM

Unless it's a high-tensile steel based bike or some Walmart low end stuff, I wouldn't consider anything too heavy unless it gets 30+ pounds. My bike with 4 chromoly pegs and 4 hub guards, along with a foot long seat post, fat seat, heavy duty tubes, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Will this fit on my bmx? (ASAP) 8/18/2015 9:21 PM

The 2.25 FAF's are the only FAF's that use the aggressive sidewall. It has a smooth sidewall with fat treading on the side. Due to this, the 2.25 is bigger than the 2.3 FAF. All the other FAF's have small treading on the sides, and the sidewalls are ... more »

Added reply in a thread Just got wasp rim from danscomp and no grease? 8/18/2015 9:17 PM

Never had a hub like that. Throw a few drops of lube or light oil in there.

Added reply in a thread JCPC's are hurting my feet. 8/18/2015 9:15 PM

Yeah, I think this is the problem. The insides are totally fine the last time I checked. They spin good after loosening them to an extent. All I can do about the pins is file/grind them down, and I feel like it's not worth it, but I rode twice today ... more »

Started new thread JCPC's are hurting my feet. 8/17/2015 11:46 PM

As the title states, I have some Odyssey JCPC's that I just started running about a week ago, and I've noticed that they make my feet hurt after a good half hour of riding. I have never ridden metal pedals before, and I've had some plastic pedals go ... more »

Added reply in a thread BSD front street pro hub VS BSD front street hub 8/17/2015 11:43 PM

I'm definitely getting the BSD Front Street Pro soon. In my 4 years of riding, I've found some that certain hubs' designs cause their bearings to wear out somewhat quicker. With the BSD, I've never had to replace bearings, except once, due to a previous ... more »

Added reply in a thread who has bought a gsport rollcage 8/17/2015 11:40 PM

Late, but if that rim is a second-hand purchase and is over a year old or so, you've pretty much run out of luck. My Gsport Birdcage started cracking at the nipple holes after about 2 years and I'm still riding it fairly well, but all Gsport can do is ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hub guards 7/27/2015 1:03 PM

Yes, that's why you see people who grind without them have varying levels of damage, from some minor scratches to a crapload ton of spokes missing, and/or the hub shell deformed. Unless you're REALLY on budget, if you plan to run pegs seriously, investing ... more »

Added reply in a thread FAT SEAT BMX HELP ASAP 7/27/2015 1:01 PM

I upgraded to a fat seat for the very first time after riding slim seats all my life. It honestly all depends on how high you ride your seatpost. I've ran seats slammed all my life because that's just my preference. Some people like running higher seats, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Has anyone purchased the daily grind front hub guards 7/27/2015 12:57 PM

What he said. ^ One hubguard comes with 3 spacers; 2 spacers about 2mm thick and one about 10mm thick. But yeah, my BSD Front Street hub didn't need any spacers at all. Keep in mind that you can only run these guards with 15mm axles. I kept forgetting ... more »

Added reply in a thread Still stuck on this new wheel build 7/3/2015 1:42 AM

My 9t driver ended up eating at my drive side cone. People usually end up having to get the 10t driver and a new drive side cone. But me on the other hand, luckily found some big 20mm spacers and other Gsport 20mm cones to rig the driver to perfection. ... more »

Is the rear axle hollow or slotted at all?

Added reply in a thread My 10th tattoo what do u think 6/5/2015 9:34 PM

I'm the most indexisive person and I've only had 2 piercings and they were the stupidest decisions I've ever made in my life. I love tattoos on people for sure, but for me, it's a no-no. I've wanted a super small anchor tattoo on my left inner wrist. ... more »

And I never understood running a guard sprocket reversed considering when I smack mine into things, it's straight into the chain/teeth mostly.

He's just a sick fuck and his buddies act like they're still hitting puberty and need to rebel against nothing in society.

Added reply in a thread Best GSPORT Rim? 6/5/2015 8:58 PM

I would personally never ride an aero-styled rim in the rear unless I had a matching set. Otherwise, the offset valve hole has caused my valve to cut so many times.. I took a file to it to solve the problem...

Added reply in a thread CANT DECIDE ON A HUB 6/5/2015 8:56 PM

Well, the Primo Freemix has a preset slack that you can't adjust. I have no idea about the Demolition Rotator, V2 I assume. And yeah, go with the rim suggestion above. Never ever buy pinned crap unless you 100% absolutely have to.
