Well no shit, cause you haven't had the time! You've been busy these last 7 years coming up with that knee slapper of a joke. Classic bovice420, always bringing the lolz.

That's installing improperly though, I'm talking maintaining it. Of course if you don't install something correctly it will fail (looking at everyone who over-tightens stem bolts then blames the company) You run 48 spline cranks a little loose for a ... more »

Me too. Probably trying to cash in on the spline drive market or something. They did 48 spline cranks years ago with the OG 41 Thermal cranks though

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Parts herrr a durrrr 2/22/2017 7:07 PM

My sentiments exactly. Unless you carry an allen key with you at ALL times and are constantly checking the bolts, they're bound to be ridden loose at some point without the users knowledge.

26t were quite common on Animal sprockets a few years ago. I ordered a 25t through the shop but my friend messed up and got 26t instead so I've just been running that ever since. It was slam-able with near perfect chain tension on the Funday I was riding ... more »

Ignoring the irony of "…your a moron" Regardless, it still creates a potential issue. Kids are idiots so of course it's gonna happen and they can eventually develop a wobble. If there's a way to get rid of a potential issue altogether, why not? Just ... more »

48 spline cranks develop wiggle so thunderbolts , they're superior

could be a couple things make sure you didn't over tighten it for one grease the bearings seats in the frame as well lastly, your headtube could be ovalized. one of my old frames squeaked like that cause the headtube was ovalized

I'm as fuck footed as you are, welcome to hell. It is a bit harder to learn stuff depending how badly you're fuck footed though. For instance, I do goofy footed whips too and it took me FOREVER to learn them. We do get an advantage though, I think it ... more »

Zip tie is for zip tying your brake cable to the frame for a clean look. Rubber strip is for fitting the reflector to your handle bar (Or seat post) better. And those 2 little aluminum things are cable ends for your brake cable & straddle cable. ... more »

Thanks a lot! Appreciate it. But yeah same, I like some older rap but 99% of newer rap music just makes my ears want to bleed haha

Thanks, yeah Garrett's a madman when it comes to barspin & oppo barspins And yeah rock just didn't seem like it'd flow for this video, and 99% of rap music sounds like garbage to me, then I stumbled on this song and it just seemed to go well with ... more »

Mine's crosslaced. G-Sport Ribcage, the center of the rim dips down just a tiny bit. But it still varies a lot. My oldddd front wheel used 190mms so he definitely needs to hit up Empire or take it to a shop haha

Added reply in a thread BSD 14 MM HUB 2/14/2017 5:43 PM

My front uses 188mm, so not always. It depends heavily on the rim (and how many crosses you do too)

my preferred method is with an air compressor. The owner of the bike ... more »
Added reply in a thread Coming back after 2 years chronic back pain 2/12/2017 9:51 PM

Stretching can most certainly make things worse. If I do the cobra stretch and completely relax my lower back, it irritates the fuck out of it and actually does more harm than good. So there's definitely some that can make it worse. Same with riding ... more »

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Thunderbolt vs Merritt Battle Cranks? 170 vs 175? 2/12/2017 9:45 PM

The Merritt cranks are too new to even say if they're good or a pile shit. Either way I'd go with the Odysseys just because of the superior wedge interface it uses over the 48 splines that can potentially wear out. The lifetime warranty is always a plus ... more »

Added reply in a thread What do you think of this? 2/12/2017 6:21 PM

shit I also forgot you'd need a driver too, and the hardware too obviously. Not to mention the bearings. It'd be a bit of money you'd be putting into it but if you're okay with that then it's definitely doable. I swapped a 3/8" male front hub axle with ... more »

Added reply in a thread What do you think of this? 2/12/2017 5:48 PM

Not just any axle will fit. The shoulders on the axle that sit between the bearings needs to be the same for one. It is possible to find axles from other hubs that will fit it though but it's gonna be a challenge. Try hitting up Odyssey and see if they ... more »
