As the title states, I accidentally engaged my freecoaster hub going backwards down a 4 set. Needless to say, I was not expecting to be thrown off the bike and I thought my feet kept slipping off my pedals at first. I ride a Primo Freemix and the slack ... more »

They should sell the badges separately. Could be a cool collector's item in the later future.

If you use a guard sprocket, it's gonna grind for sure. Some other halflinks tend to grind/eat away at guard sprockets too, which is why you see some wear on the inner side of guard sprockets.

Sounds good, but going down anything fast, yeah, I wouldn't know how to save myself. It's literally a split second before you get thrown off the bike.

Why not just go with standard gearing? It's always harder to find offset gear ratios.

As far as I know, just don't submerge your entire frame in water constantly and you should be fine. I don't know how deteriorating rust actually is, but surface rust should be fine, and can be removed quickly only right after it occurs. If you care about ... more »

I'd happily find some Cult Dehart tires and Primo Hula Hoop rims for you to work on. You'll want to kill yourself before it's over. At some point, I remember literally almost crying trying to take off tires on the fattest tire beads and tallest rim sidewalls. ... more »

I always do that, at least a quarter crank before hitting things. I was hopping up the 4 set, so maybe my foot moved backwards and offsetted the slack. I guess I could take a super quick quarter crank again sometime before tricks if I don't have to move ... more »

Added reply in a thread Proper hub bearing problem 4/25/2016 9:21 PM
I've never had a drive side bearing like that. Never seen one literally behind the entire ratchet ring either. And I thought the ratchet ring was just a ring on the outer side and had nothing to do with the hub bearing seats. I have no clue, but if Proper ... more »

Been riding for almost 5 full years now and still can't 3 clean. I have dialed tricks, but I really want to get more technical. I've gotten more serious in the last 2 years or so, but it's definitely not still enough at all. I now wear shin guards and ... more »

Sometimes, it's the tire bead size or the rim sidewall height that makes tires a bitch to take on and off. This is why I have like 4-5 plastic tire levers on me all the time when I have tools. They're the Bell ones sold in pairs and the generic ones ... more »

Grinding unprotected with that sprocket, eh? I grind on my right and I'm used to it, so I'd rather have my switch grinding side without a guard sprocket.
