So yeah, it's been a long time since my last bike check and I've changed up my setup somewhat. Mainly got a new frame that I had to touch up on. I got impatient and kinda messed with the clearcoat, but that's what happens when impatience kills.. Anyways,
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 »

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...

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.

I definitely had a run or two from a clogged rattle can spray tip. But yeah, like I said, only the underside of the frame maybe didn't have as much time to let it dry super well compared to the half to full days I leave in between the coats of paint ... more »
Added reply in a thread Bike weight and its effects 6/3/2015 4:40 PM
I prefer 25+ bikes. 24- feels way too light and I always end up "overdoing" a trick. Especially if someone's one end is light/heavier than their other end. With that being said, when I try riding peoples' bikes, I especially hate super light bikes with ... more »

Too bad it's mostly the under side of the frame..
Added reply in a thread Painting Issue! 6/3/2015 4:25 PM
I know what orange peel effect is, but this has never happened. Maybe I painted this frame so thick, which is why it happened. When I did the top side of the frame, it was mostly fine. And I tend to find that satin/matte clearcoat leaves some kind of ... more »

Nah, I make sure it's clean and dry in between coats.

Oh, and the weather is 80 and under. I live in Nor Cal, and I know it's not great to paint in cool weather, even though I've done all that and still have never ever experienced anything like this in all of my painting life.

So I got an S&M BTM frame the other day and it was trans brown but chipped and scratched all over, so I roughened up the frame with some steel wool and sand paper, leaving the original paint still intact. I put exactly 3-4 coats of black Rustoleum ... more »
