Reply to Merritt Option Tires (Update) 5/27/2015 11:10 AM

You're right..of course you could grind just fine with any tire but some will handle better than others and if they're making them to hold up a little better that's great.. Really I don't know if it works or not but Mike Brennan didn't have to get involved ... more »

Reply to Merritt Option Tires (Update) 5/27/2015 9:30 AM

So I sent Merritt an email with a pic of the tire this morning and a couple hrs later, Mike Brennan himself emailed me back and offered me another tire at half price since a torn tire really isn't a warranty issue, which I didn't think it was anyway. ... more »

New thread Merritt Option Tires (Update) 5/26/2015 5:04 PM

Living in Philly 90% of my riding is in the street, so when I see tires that are street specific I like to try them out. When I saw Merritt's new Option tire with "slidewall" technology having a thicker and smoother casing on the wall part of the tire ... more »

Check out the cult juvenile. It's a 16" and weighs about 18-19 lbs. I believe it's right there in the $400 range and prob could get 15% off at Danscomp right now. I bought the same one for my daughter. It's just like a real 20 but smaller!

New thread Fixed slack freecoasters-larger sprocket=less slack? 2/4/2015 10:59 AM

I've read somewhere that larger sprockets will shorten up the slack on freecoasters with no slack adjustments. Does anyone have any real experience with this? Just got a new freemix and haven't got a chance to ride it yet. Anyone running it got any info ... more »

Reply to What Kink bike should i get? 7/31/2014 9:51 AM

I thought all completes came with brakes..isn't it a law..I know it is in PA, but not sure about everywhere else..and besides if you really want a liberty you could just buy a set of brakes and mounts and throw them on if you wanted to

Reply to Tips for beginner at grinding 7/31/2014 9:47 AM

All really good tips here but most important is keeping your weight balanced over whatever it is your grinding on. If your hopping on and falling right off, your leaning away from it..keep your weight centered over it and you'll notice you'll start to ... more »

Reply to Demolition zero or gsport ribcage 7/30/2014 8:54 AM

Gsport no doubt..cross lacing pattern makes it super stiff.. I run the roll cage on the back and it takes a beating but still hanging in there..I don't know the difference between the roll and the rib but can't go wrong with them

Reply to Mother of fuck... WHY 7/30/2014 8:12 AM

So that's why didn't run big tires back then!! They look way too disproportionate to that frame!! Maybe it's the whole bike though!! Idk?? I'm confused..it kinda looks like a flatland bike

Reply to Hard choice 7/30/2014 8:04 AM

If you want a freecoaster complete go with the united Martinez fc if you can find it..it looks siick, smoke chrome frame camo stem,pedals and seat!! If I was looking for one right now, I'd be all over that one!! And yeah I'd hate to say it but I have ... more »

I'm 6' tall and wear 10 1/2 sneakers, my chainstays are about 13.25 and had to go with 165mm cranks when I went to four pegs. I didn't think it would've worked but it did..as long as my foot is in the middle of the pedal I'm fine..it was a little adjustment ... more »

Reply to will it work 7/29/2014 11:38 AM

I don't know..I have the sunday octaves and had to cut it to run no spacers..your just gonna have to try it..and why does it have to have no spacers?? One or two is no big deal

Reply to Pegs and everything about them... 7/28/2014 4:36 PM

Yes it fits 14mm axles..female axle hubs have 14mm center axles which are just long enough to fit in the dropouts then the bolt goes into it..like I said, it'll be even easier with a male axle
