Added reply in a thread barspins w/ brakes 12/2/2016 10:37 PM

Just them being there was enough to make me not wanna do barspins. I was always so scared of busting my knuckles on the lever so I just never did them unless we were playing bike. Did a bar to fakie once and ended up pulling the lever upon landing and ... more »

I think most freecoaster wheels nowadays use 182mm or 183mm definitely don't take my word for it, I'd take it to a bike shop and have them calculate it for you.

Added reply in a thread Clear pads on chrome rims? 12/2/2016 6:56 PM

The problem with clear pads on chrome rims isn't the noise, it's that they work TOO well and can actually rip the pads apart. Imagine going down that hill that fast, pulling your brake and the pads just get sheered off... Yeah, not fun sounding haha. ... more »

A guide of some sort may help just because sometimes it's hard to get the cut started with the blade moving around. Not impossible though, just takes a tad more effort than using a guide would take. I'm about 5'8" or 5'9" with a completely slammed front ... more »

Added reply in a thread OFFICIAL BIKE SELECTION GUIDE FOR NEWBIES 12/1/2016 6:27 PM

Most new members aren't even smart enough to read the "READ FIRST" thread, they just post whatever right away. So the problem with stickying it would be people would still just ask what bike they should get when there's a sticky directly above them. ... more »

Definitely not a Sunday either, they never used Spanish. Steve may be right, I was thinking it was a Fly as well. They use Spanish and it kinda looks like a Fly just looking at it. I'll do a little research and see what I can find.

Added reply in a thread Handlebar length (hoping to hear preferences, perspectives etc) 12/1/2016 6:15 PM

I wonder if it has something to do with the chroming process that's making it hard to cut. Because I work at a shop, and I've cut down countless bars & steerer tubes using a hacksaw with a traditional blade. The only pair of bars that ever gave me ... more »

Added reply in a thread Crankflips 11/30/2016 3:00 PM

It feels cooler catching both feet at the same time, but I think it's better to catch the front foot first because it stops your cranks from over rotating and that's what leads to shinners. Which how to did you watch? Just curious cause I have a how ... more »

Added reply in a thread Crankflips 11/30/2016 2:16 PM

just go for it and don't be afraid, shin guards might help you commit though. Just hop & kick, then spot your front foot pedal and get that foot on first. I try not even worrying about the back foot, it kinda just gets back on itself. After awhile ... more »

Added reply in a thread full chromoly 11/29/2016 8:34 PM

The rest of the parts on the Fit bike are of higher quality. That's why it's $600. It is kind of a gyp though that the frame isn't full chromoly, as you can get full chromoly frame bikes for less than that. But it makes up in other parts at least. On ... more »

Go ahead and get it then. No one's stopping you from buying an inferior product, but don't come back here bitching and whining when you need to replace half the bike after a month or so of riding it, or even get a new bike again altogether.

Added reply in a thread Cult Devotion vs Verde Neyer Pro? 11/28/2016 11:05 PM

they're very similar in specs, but the Cult has a double wall front rim whereas the Verde does not. So I'd go with the Cult. Plus it comes with 2 pegs so you're getting more for less of a price.

Added reply in a thread Cracked rim/flattened tire 11/27/2016 5:51 PM

that's not a crack, it's a pinned seam as opposed to a welded one. it's supposed to look like that. If it starts splitting apart though, then it's going bad. spray some WD40 in the threads right where the nuts are and let it sit for a bit, then try.

Added reply in a thread What does it mean to oppo on a bike 11/27/2016 4:27 PM

I call it's switch just cause "switch wallride" or something of the like feels like it rolls off the tongue easier. A lot of people use them interchangeably anyway nowadays, but yeah you're correct. Switch is when you switch your footing to do a trick, ... more »
