Just two slic cables should be all you need. Provided your brakes use two pinch bolts.

bmx racing is nearly the same as road cycling today. super smooth and easy tracks and everyone is clipped in. bmx trails is the real deal. No dig, no ride. Plenty of folks don't want to put in work when they can just go to the skatepark. If you want ... more »

Bmx has always been about money except for when there was no money. Who cares who rides/works for what company? Do you not go to a given gas station, burger joint, hardware store, grocery store, etc because they stopped doing business with another entity? ... more »

the "brake location matters" debate is silly. I can get brakes to work just as well in any location. One finger locking power. That said, I do like not feeling my brake cable when I pick my bike up from the top tube.

Once you get them set up they're great. No rattle from the hanger bouncing on the down tube. I love the way mine feel.

I'm running Evo brakes. And a cheap cable hanger. Not the one that comes with the brakes. My straddle cable is very short.

I have a Hartbreaker with the same design. It was a pain in the ass to get set up but once set up my brakes work and feel great. I'm using Odyssey brakes (not the Springfield ones) and I'm using one of the very cheap cable hangers. They are smaller, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fit "super strong " indent 24 bossless cranks ??! 11/23/2015 11:32 AM

You should check your parts more often. The rust indicates that the cranks were cracked for some time before they broke. Ride for enough years and you'll see MANY parts fail. Some riders will have no issues with a part and other riders will. It's just ... more »

I use an adjustable wrench all the time. If you know how to use them, you'll have no issues. I've used an adjustable wrench on my bike for more years than most of you have been alive. I've never stripped a nut or bolt using them.

If the bearings are that hard to press in, they'll probably bind when/if you can actually get them in. Let us know how it goes.
