- Bike Checks
the only thing that is killing bmx is shitty attitudes that bmx is dead. bmx isn't about what other people do on a bike. it's about what you do, on a bike.
seriously dude. GOODS BMX. They're in portland and the owner is probably your age. He knows what's up. go there.
GOODS BMX, it's in Portland and Shad (the owner) will help you out. He's got all kinds of 80's bikes in his shop so if you go in, you'll feel right at home. He'll be able to show you what you need and help you build it up if needed.
Levan can't huck himself down shit anymore cause he done hucked himself too many times.
Hell yea Joel! I'm building the Faction 22 up that I got from you a few years back. full freestyle style. pegs, etc You seriously have cancer?
The quality of their shoes has gone down hill in the last bunch of years. I use Shoe Goo to put the soles back on.
The easiest solution is to spend much more money on a legit complete. But if you only have 200 to spend the best solution is to replace the frame and get brakes for the other bike.
Correct. Spend the 200 on a frame and brakes. use the older parts and build up one complete decent bike.
Spending 200 on a new bike is honestly a waste of money. You're going to destroy parts so quickly that it's not worth it. Did the first bike you get break or get destroyed? I'm still not clear on what happened to it. Tell your father to read this post ... more »
Grind side doesn't matter. If you only run pegs on one side you COULD get your chain/sprocket set up for the other side. I have always run 4 pegs and my right side was my grind side. We didn't have the option for left side drive way back in the day. ... more »
Those TLD 5400 things I mentioned are tiny. BUT, they offer great protection. The ones with the built in shin pads are a bit bigger (cause they're longer) but some say they fit better. My knee pads fit my legs very well, never slip or pinch. I have had ... more »
use the parts off that last bike you bought and just buy a new frame. I don't think you can get much bicycle for 200 (I'm not sure what that translates to in USD, which, as a lazy american, is the only currency I know.
The 1980's called. They want their trick back. How do you think the tricks you kids do today were invented?
22 inch wheeled bmx.
use a file (round bastard file) or an angle grinder/dremel tool. Measure twice, cut once. Use a sharpie to draw where you want to remove metal. Go slow... I've done it more than once.
if you land on any seat hard, you will break it. Who is making a decent railed seat these days?
"the crank bearings are wore and and slipping " That's what you said in your first post. If you want accurate help you need to explain the issue correctly. Slipping and seizing are two different issues....
It's NOT the bearings. Bearings do not, in anyway, make the bike go forward when you pedal. Bearings make things smoother. Post a video. or explain EXACTLY what is happening. If you took the chain off, the cranks and sprocket (which is bolted to the ... more »
If there is a hole in your fork for breaks, these would work. They are cheap and suck as brakes but would work for your parents requirements. https://www.amazon.com/Tektro-984-Sidepull-Front-Brake/dp/B001CJX4M4 The springfield brakes would work for the ... more »
