New thread Accidentally engaging freecoaster going backwards 4/26/2016 10:05 PM

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 »

New thread Fractured elbow.. 4/20/2016 9:03 PM

So yeah, I hit a 5 set rail today with a huge drop at the end and nose dived off and basically almost faceplanted. I ended up going under the bike and somehow landing mostly onto my left elbow. I have a small gash, but my elbow does not feel right. I ... more »

New thread First Day on A Freecoaster Hub 4/10/2016 10:41 PM

So I ended up getting a complete Primo Freemix wheel and for the most part, it seems to be pretty damn reliable. About a tiny bit less than a quarter crank of slack and non-adjust slack keeps the hub pretty simple. Internals look like they didn't need ... more »

New thread Primo Freemix? 4/3/2016 9:25 PM

Seeing that at least 85% of online bike edits are now people with freecoasters, I was kinda sold on getting a freecoaster. It's just that I've never owned one personally or never ridden one seriously for over half a day. The maintenance and internals ... more »

New thread Running shorter spokes was a bad idea.... 2/13/2016 10:21 PM

As the title says, I didn't have any proper-sized spokes and had to end up running a set that had a few shorter spokes. I was surprised my wheel setup even lasted for a good half a year. I went to practice feeble hard 3's and under-rotated a and landed ... more »

New thread Still got a puncture flat somehow... 8/30/2015 7:57 PM

As the title says. I always ran a flat liner and 2 rimstrips on each of my wheels that I have. As time went on, the one tire liner didn't prove to be enough, so I ran 2, and I still got puncture from thorns. It's absolutely ridiculous. For my tire liners, ... more »

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 »

New thread The Ride V8 6/5/2015 10:25 AM

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,

New thread Painting Issue! 6/3/2015 12:29 PM

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 »

New thread Headset issues. 3/3/2015 1:07 AM

Ever since about half a year ago, my top bearing race started seizing up. Usually, I'd be able to slip it off and on quite easily. I started having to hammer out my forks and doing that, I feel that the bearing does take some unnecessary force. I actually ... more »

New thread LF: Tan wall tires, 2.25+, 100+ PSI 2/18/2015 11:04 PM

What the title says, preferably in good condition. I'd like 2.2 or 2.4 Odyssey Chase Hawk's. Anything else works as long as there's no horrifying stretch marks. I would also really prefer a matching set. The size can be mix-matched though.

New thread Sprocket Alignment Trouble 2/8/2015 12:10 AM

Ever since I went to LHD on my two-piece cranks (majority of two-piece cranks are built fixed on the RHD side), my sprocket can never be installed 100% aligned. My method of installation involved leaving the sprocket bolt partially loose as I tighten ... more »

New thread Sprocket Alignment Trouble 2/8/2015 12:00 AM

So ever since I started running LHD with my two-piece cranks (fixed on RHD side), my sprocket will never line up 100% no matter what I try. I've tried leaving the sprocket bolt loose, then tightening the crank arm down first, then the sprocket which ... more »

New thread Gsport Ratchet hub common problems. 1/14/2015 1:22 AM

I knew it was a matter of time before my hub would be just like the majority of people who have had problems with the hub.. The drive side cone is basically a press-fit aluminum with a rubber seal. For 10t, it looks like the cone rests on top of the ... more »

New thread Hang Fives! 1/7/2015 5:53 PM

For the love of fckin.... I CAN'T GET THEM NO MATTER WHAT! Like if I try to practice with just the walk in one, or just any way for that particular matter, my seat will NOT reach my ass. I can run a 20", have the seat either slammed or raised and it'll ... more »

New thread Do bearing shells ever stretch over time? 12/16/2014 1:35 AM

Let's say you hammer out your frame bottom bracket or replace hub bearings literally every single month. I mean, wouldn't that somewhat stretch/wear out the metal material wherever you're constantly forcing contact in/out of it? I assume it'd take the ... more »

Throw me offers. Prefer factory paint and in black. Mid BB shell, 20.5-20.75" TT, 13.75" CS and under, integrated seatclamp. I want something that's beefy with like top and down tube gussets or something. As for FC hubs, I have no idea how to maintain ... more »
