Added reply in a thread Remix v2 cassette hub prototype 9/21/2014 8:34 PM

I've seen it once before on here, but never this clean of a break haha. It's okay though cause I have another wheel I'm trading him, I don't need that wheel so I'm fine with that haha I'll just use the remix parts for spare bearings & driver and ... more »

Started new thread Remix v2 cassette hub prototype 9/21/2014 8:08 PM

so Primo hooked me up with their new Remix v2 cassette hub & it's pretty sick! Removable flanges so you can replace them if you end up breaking or bending them due to grinding. Such innovation. Wow.

Joking aside, this is just a hub a friend ... more »

For sure ^^ So glad I covered it with a tarp last night because it randomly started raining today & I wasn't home to go cover it and those boards aren't treated D: haha

bumper cars. updated with today's progress, and added in dimensions for the sidewalls for the landing. Didn't get around to adding diagonal boards in the center though, barely for the landing built before the sun went down haha.

That's not a foot high ledge though

Good call ^^^ I'll be sure to reinforce it with some boards going diagonal when I get the chance. Those ramps look sick btw! I love how ramps look before the plywood's laid down, kinda like a ramp skeleton haha

Usually all you'll have to do it take the dick out of the butt and they'll fit a mid BB frame

Added reply in a thread box jump building 9/19/2014 10:12 PM

Do it, I'm stoked to get this finished! And 2 & a half feet tall, 5 feet wide (plus like 2 more inches from both the side boards), 6 feet long. I can get exact dimensions tomorrow or Sunday, right now it's kinda dark out haha.

Well then you should've posted it in the bike check section along with a full parts list, people there would love it (no sarcasm) Not just throw it in the general section with some pics asking for opinions, that's way too vague. I do however like the ... more »

Added reply in a thread New rear wheel 9/19/2014 8:21 PM

183.5/185.6 is pretty common for the Remix, but without an ERD for that Proper rim, I can't figure it out myself. Call Empire as stated above, or if you're having it built somewhere, they should be able to figure that out for you.

csb and all, but I'm stoked as fuck to get this completed. I started the other day on the box frame, and today my dad & I got the pieces for the landing cut up, so right now I just need to complete the landing by screwing the 2x4s into the plywood

iMovie on the iPhone is what I used before I got my Mac to make all my edits. I haven't used it in over a year but it was really good and has a lot of features. Well worth the $5. I took it off my phone though to save space, but I can still redownload ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cracking sound from stem 9/17/2014 9:48 PM

could be a loose headset, or that there's no grease where the headset bearings sit. always grease bearing seats. I would suggest it could be an ovalized headset, but you said it's a new bike so that's unlikely, but still possible.

Added reply in a thread Pinched Stem Help?? 9/17/2014 8:37 PM

this question makes no sense, the 1 & 1/8" refers to the steerer tube, the 3/8" refers to the dropout size.

Added reply in a thread brakes making noise when I pull the lever hard.. 9/16/2014 7:13 PM

So I fixed it, or at least for the moment anyway. Bikeshop owner advised putting a lick of grease around the cable end that goes in the brake lever. Did that and it stopped. Just commenting that for future reference if anyone ever searches for this same ... more »

Added reply in a thread What do you use to cut linear cable housings? 9/16/2014 7:09 PM

I use these at the shop, and they cut right through any type of housing. You just gotta be quick with the cut, if you slowly cut it or don't use enough force, you'll fuck the housing up or it won't cut right.
