Added reply in a thread Tips on Boosting a spine 3/31/2015 11:30 AM

Tecnic1 How steep is the spine? 4 foot usually means mellow. Mellow means harder to boost strait up.

You can carve from side to side if you want or boost strait over it. Depending on the height and size of the transition, you may want to kick out some to catch the tranny. If the ramp is big enough you want to nose in, catching the tranny as high up ... more »

File the dropouts so the axle fits. If you remove metal from the bottom part of the axle slot, it's hard to mess it up. Just use tape or marker as a visual guide.

If you have bumps and roots on your trails, you aren't building them correctly.

Your seat post is the same size as every post on danscomp. The big issue today is most posts are really short.

Run 4 pegs. Why limit your options? What is your local park?

You won't be able to get/fit fat tires in that frame/fork, I'd guess. I'd go with the same size that came on it. Probably 1.75 or about that wide

It's a quill stem.

Added reply in a thread Need help with a farther son project PLEASE!! 2/21/2015 9:04 AM

it's not integrated. does the headset need to be replaced? I know the bike is old but it's probably still in good shape. I'm running ten year old (or older) parts on my bike and I ride it pretty hard. Did the bearings fall out of the cages when you took ... more »

You can't change the gearing to a 9 on the mags. It's a different type of hub.

Pretty sure a gyro won't work with V brakes. I'm sure people have gotten them to work but they aren't designed for it. As for front brakes, you will need calipers. That is what are on the bike now. U brakes require posts to be mounted and your fork has ... more »

You need "V" brakes for that frame. Any set will work fine, no need to spend lots of money on them. You'll want a new cable too. If it was my bike I'd put a new Odyssey cable on, lube it WELL with Tri Flow, take the brakes off and clean the springs/lube ... more »

Tuff 2's are five spoke wheels. Either way, you should still be able to rebuild those. Just take them apart and clean / re grease.
