Added reply in a thread Primo Remix Cassette 3/24/2017 7:13 PM

Primo Remix does NOT use the same internals as the Match cassette, or the Mix cassette. Only the driver is the same. The Remix uses smaller bearings, a slightly more hollow axle, and a shitty shell design that I've seen a lot of people snap clean in ... more »

awhhh John Hicks is my first born daughter (post op of course)! I'm excited to be a grandmother, give him my regards next time you see him and tell his bitch of a neighbor to stop stealing my corn flakes

Added reply in a thread Possible to build a custom bmx for 900-1000cdn? 3/22/2017 7:21 PM

What bike do you have now? It could be possible if you just replace what's needed. For instance, if your pedals, stem, sprocket, headset, stuff like that are fine, then that right there saves you money. Otherwise yeah I'd say get a nice complete and ... more »

Hard anodized rims will typically last far longer than traditionally painted rims. Also if you keep your pads and your sidewalls clean from dirt, that'll also help. Cause the dirt sticks to it then scratches the paint off overtime.

Hands down Thunderbolts. Only cranks I've ever ridden that still feel brand new after years of riding them

Added reply in a thread What is this trick called? 3/22/2017 3:17 PM

not sure on the name, but an older rider here always used to do them in games of BIKE on banks to fakie. try that, they look sweet that way.

Or go to a bike shop and see if they have any laying around. I know the shop I'm at, we keep those things and put them in a bin with other headset parts for this exact reason. Every now & then someone needs one and doesn't wanna buy a new headset ... more »

Might just be the slick center area, but for some reason I don't really like the look of these at all, even though they're not that much different from the regular Path tires

Added reply in a thread Looking for a Cassette hub (BSD Backstreet pro?) 3/14/2017 9:27 PM

Stranger uses the Remix internals, Cult uses the Mix internals. The Mix used 4 6902 bearings in the hub shell, but the Remix used 4 6802 bearings. I've been riding the Cult Match v1 for 4 years now with no issue, and a friend of mine has been riding ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking for a Cassette hub (BSD Backstreet pro?) 3/14/2017 4:05 PM

Not the Backstreet Pro, but my friend has the regular Backstreet hub and it skips on him all the time. It's not even a year old yet either. In my experience, they have a good warranty at least. I received a defective front hub a couple years ago. They ... more »

Do it, just watch out for security. I've ridden that spot and one time this huge security guard came running after us and he looked PISSED haha

Added reply in a thread Cult match hub guards 3/12/2017 8:41 PM

Well yeah, but when the bore of the hub guard is deforming onto the axle as well (as in both my of friends case and my case for my front hub guard) it doesn't seem to help much.

Added reply in a thread Cult match hub guards 3/12/2017 8:14 PM

Just threadless ones as far as I know. I once asked Neal from Cult (the guy who designs their parts) why they didn't have threads and he said they ran into issues with it

Added reply in a thread Cult match hub guards 3/12/2017 8:13 PM

The guards don't have threads though... I have no idea why but there are photos of them with threads in them, but working at a shop and ordering several of them I can tell you none of them ever had threads in them. They were basically press-on guards ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cult match hub guards 3/12/2017 7:05 PM

Yes, but I'd advise against it actually. I only knew 2 people who ever rode the rear hub guard but both of them had the problem of the guard seizing onto the axle and they couldn't get it off very easy.

Added reply in a thread Brain storm session: Axle idea 3/10/2017 11:17 PM

Correct. Shadow also did a reverse threaded axle "upgrade" for their Rant front hub many years ago, too. The idea there though was to stop your nuts from loosening up when grinding, but when I had the Anorexia cassette it still came loose anyway. This ... more »

Haha I just saw that thread too I've never heard of them breaking frames but I can definitely see how they could. They're definitely slanted forward more than traditional forks are, so that could add to it but the issue with the director forks was at ... more »
