I have to disagree with you a bit on that last part. I do think his riding style has changed after the crash. His newer footage after the accident like his part in Killjoy doesn't quite match up to his pre-crash style. That being said, Mike Aitken is ... more »
S&M Redneck for sure. S&M/Fit stems use different bolts than every other stem I've ever tried and it makes a difference. Other bolts start stripping a lot quicker and become harder to remove over time (I use a substantial amount of lube on all ... more »
Added reply in a thread Good quiet rear hub? 6/22/2013 12:00 AM
Topsey is spot on. Of all the cassette hubs I ran though, to me the least noisiest good hub is the GSport Ratchet.
I'm selling various BMX parts that are either brand new or in mint condition. I'm pretty firm on the prices but you can try and throw me an offer if you want. I'm not interested in any trades at all. All prices include shipping within the 48 states.

I have a trans red 20.5" S&M BTM (13.125 slammed, 11.5 bb height) that is practically brand new but not for $220. There isn't one scratch or dent on it. A bit of paint is chipped off on the dropouts but it disappears of course as soon as you throw ... more »
Just like Topsey said, it's all preference. I prefer shorter top tubes and chainstay lengths for the same reasons. You can also purchase longer stems or Chicago style your bars (bars angled forward) for more room. It won't change your wheelbase for your ... more »
I would highly recommend going to a bike shop and ride a factory complete bike in 20.5" and 21" top tube lengths. If you could find a factory bike made in two different sizes like the Verde Vex, that would be ideal because all the components are the ... more »
I generally don't like any of the bikes on Vital because they either resemble a 3 year old's coloring book and/or the parts are crap. But your ride is probably one of three dopest bikes on Vital that is not only clean, but have choice parts as well. ... more »
Is it just me or does the box in the newer Fit Sky High bars look bigger than previous versions?

I would look at the G Sport Wheels. The front has the Marmoset laced to a Rollcage and the rear has the Ratchet laced to a Rollcage. I would also recommend for the front the Odyssey M7 front wheel. If you're looking for something cheaper, I would recommend ... more »

You'll know if your order is shipped if you receive an email with a tracking number. It won't be directly from Empire, but from UPS or a USPS affiliated site (whichever shipping you went with). If you haven't received any tracking number through your ... more »
Added reply in a thread First BMX bike 8/9/2011 3:12 PM
First bike I had was a 1989 GT Performer in white. I wanted the Pro Performer so bad because the wheels were spokes, not mags. I HATED the mags. So I worked part time and eventually bought new wheels, mushroom grips, and occasionally a new seat whenever ... more »
