I saw that Sunday, if it's what he says it is, it's a 2015 Sunday Reeves AM Plus the frame has a chromoly down tube & dropouts, the fork only has chromoly dropouts, the bars aren't even chromoly, and the cranks are full chromoly (most any complete ... more »

If you were planning on ordering a $400 Fit complete, just spend $10 extra (plus shipping & tax obviously) and get this 2016 Volume Infantry bike that's on sale on Danscomp, marked down from $480 Full chromoly frame, fork, bars & cranks, fully sealed hubs ... more »

I'm not sure about that Craiglist find. The frame is the ONLY good part on it. "Custom Fit forks & bars" and "spent over $1000" my ass, those are stock parts from a low level Fit TRL 1 complete from 2010 that cost $360. Here's a spec list for that bike minus the frame. ... more »

Added reply in a thread mds2 guard sprocket (la guardia) and what chain!! Cult half link vs BSD 1991 half link 6/23/2016 5:44 PM

Ohio already covered the basis at least twice now. Full link chains > half link chains. The only real benefit to them is if you have like a 22/8 gearing ratio. Otherwise, just get a full link chain with a single half link and it'll do the exact same ... more »

Added reply in a thread I just realized no heat treatment 6/23/2016 5:36 PM

I read awhile back it was to cut costs. I could be completely wrong here but I remember someone explaining how it isn't necessary to heat treat the entire frame, stuff like dropouts, BB shell & headtube though should be, so some companies started ... more »

I don't mind them on other peoples bikes unless they're placed horribly... like a random sticker dead center of the top tube looks fucking ugly in my opinion. I like mine clean with minimal stickers, used to be a lot of random stickers though or a sticker ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bike Choice Question (GT vs Kink) 6/21/2016 1:09 PM

False on the semi sealed thing, I've had countless ones apart and they all have loose ball bearings and 1 sealed cartridge bearing just behind the driver in the hub shell.

Added reply in a thread Bike Choice Question (GT vs Kink) 6/20/2016 6:11 PM

How much are you getting them for? There could be better deals for the price. Out of those two, I'd go with the GT. It's actually not full chromoly, it has chromoly main tubes (Which I assume means just the top tube & down tubes?) and seat stays, ... more »

Added reply in a thread bb didnt have spacer with it??? 6/17/2016 9:57 PM

yeah try to get it as straight as possible, if you cut it too short you can always add some of those little crank spacers in there too. That's how mine is but my spacer was just too short so I didn't have to cut it, just add some little spacers inside. ... more »

Added reply in a thread bb didnt have spacer with it??? 6/17/2016 9:44 PM

Either they goofed and lost it and didn't tell you, or the factory that put that bike together fucked up and didn't include one cause working at a shop, I've never seen even stock bikes without that spacer so it should have been in there still. I'm betting ... more »

Added reply in a thread Going Backwards 6/17/2016 8:44 PM

A freecoaster does not help, it gets rid of the back pedaling yes but I feel that makes it harder cause with a cassette you can control it more & also easier. It's one of those that'll click eventually, I was grinding over bar height ledges and almost ... more »

Not buying the best forks in bmx just because there are lots of other forks (of lesser quality) out there to choose from is even dumber.

Added reply in a thread Colony Sweet Tooth, Fit Blade 2, Volume Anchor V2, Kink CST or S&M Pitchforks? 6/16/2016 5:41 PM

I'd say the quality of the fork is their biggest advantage, the lifetime warranty is just icing on the cake. I'm not bashing S&M, but their forks are not up to par with Odyssey forks. I've seen 4 break/fail in person, on 2 of them (newer Pitchforks) ... more »

Those are the better forks. Those or the Sunday Octaves (which are essentially the R32 forks) I'm sure there's gonna be that one guy (cough cough Brayden) to chime in here and tell you not to get them based on the fact that everyone has or suggests Odyssey ... more »

Obligatory "Odyssey or Sunday forks /thread" But seriously.

Added reply in a thread Sealed bottom bracket noises 6/13/2016 10:22 PM

so the popping sound is still there even when your chain is not on the bike or it's not being pedaled? Sounds like you just need a new BB bearing, or bearings. Take the cranks off and pull the spindle out and try to spin the bearing with your finger, ... more »
