That doesn't look like 70 degrees. what bike is it?

Added reply in a thread Weird Chain Issue 1/19/2017 12:35 PM

If you added links, do the new links bend smoothly? Are the pins pushed in correctly? (not sticking out further on one side) You should be able to flip the bike upside down and spin the cranks, when you get to the tight spot, examine the chain/sprocket ... more »

Everyone saying it wasn't pulled but non of them would attempt this. Armchair bike riders.

Added reply in a thread Weird Chain Issue 1/18/2017 10:10 AM

^ yes there is. The issue isn't the chain. The issue is the sprocket isn't centered on the spindle. If the hat washer doesn't fit perfectly or the sprocket is JUST tilted a tad on the cranks, you get tight spots in your chain.

What's to know? both parts fit each other. Buy 'em, install 'em , ride 'em.

I'm not seeing it... Where does it look cracked?

Added reply in a thread another question about these tires 1/15/2017 8:15 AM

I'd keep riding and learning before buying new parts. Keep saving money for when you actually need new parts. make a goal of when you can manual 3 car spaces, or bunnyhop onto a bench or something, that you'll buy a new part then. It's a waste of money ... more »

You moved to seattle? what part? All of the chains you mentioned are good. I personally like the bluebird.

learn how to manual. Learn how to bunny hop. These techniques will teach you to keep your body weight back and should help you from going over the bars. I also think your frame is too short which puts your body too far forward.

Added reply in a thread General question about replacing bmx tires 1/6/2017 11:56 AM

Is your frame wide enough to allow a wider tire to fit? If the bike came spec'd with 1.75 it may not be able to take larger tires.

That bike looks small. How tall are you and what is the top tube length of that frame?

Added reply in a thread BMX Racing at 51 and no confident 1/1/2017 12:11 PM

DON'T CLIP IN. There is no need for it, especially at your age. You need to analyze WHY you're going over the bars. Is your frame / bike too short? Just cause the wheels are 24 inches doesn't mean the frame is longer. Is it your technique? Do you lean ... more »

Ride flats. Ride 510 shoes. or better yet, stop racing and have fun building and riding dirt jumps/trails.

Your frame sounds like it's too short too.

did you put the wedge on the other side? I have an Odyssey pivotal and when i put it on I had the same issue as you. Someone mentioned to move the wedge or whatever and it helped pull the front end lower. Oddly.... I don't have a pic of my bike/seat ... more »
