bmxmuseum.com will be able to tell you what it is. Not what it's worth though. don't ask the value. they don't like that. They'll know what it is though. The wheels are skyway tuff II's or good knock offs of them.

If you don't want it to break, don't ride it. It's OLD and as stated above, metal fatigues. Get on craigslist or somewhere and buy a bike that fits you , that you can't ride without worry.

I don't remember if it has an actual name but it's OLD AS FUCK. as in, 1989-90 old. Do it between some benches or planter boxes or something. grab your seat while you do it do an x-up while you do it lots of variations on this foot plant. Look up Eddie ... more »

it's all personal preference but I have slowly moved up to a 21.125 from a 20 inch top tube frame and I like the way it fits much better. I'm 5'8". I think the bars I'm running on that bike are 8.75 with a top load stem. If you're new (sounds like you ... more »

Was this one of the cheap stems that sell for under 30 bucks ? Either way, I only trust a few companies when it comes to stems and Eastern isn't one of them. Just looked this up. It's a childs stem. No way would i run that thing on my bike. I just bought ... more »

Added reply in a thread Brain storm session: does a 9 tooth coaster brake hub exist?? 3/10/2017 10:00 AM

Coaster brake hubs used to be standard on freestyle bikes. I ran one for years. They are the reason we have freecoasters today. There are companies that make modern/new coaster brakes but I don't think they come w/ small drivers/gears like a 9 tooth.I ... more »

well, it's kinda the digging season right now so nothing is really running. They'll run as soon as the sun comes out for a day or two though. You should check 'em out. They're right next to the greenlake skatepark. If you're into dirt it's a good place ... more »

more details? Seriously, what EXACTLY do you want from us? We need more info if you want help. Or are you simply telling us that you have a good stem that does what it is supposed to do and holds your forks correctly?
