Added reply in a thread Bent dropout. 10/23/2014 9:20 PM

Mirraco C-Low, did a little Googling to find that out haha. But he could get the S&M Cymbal for the front, that one just slides on. It's also $40 though, and for $40 you can easily find a used pair of forks from someone.

The last time I saw a fork snap in the center of the steerer tube was never, because every other company doesn't put a cutout in the middle of them. It might not make it snap, but it's guaranteed to be weaker in that area. Just because it's been done ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fiend Garrett Reynolds Frame 10/23/2014 6:11 PM

I didn't mind it when I had a frame with welded mounts. Some people hate it though and like the clean look of no mounts. Removable mounts in my opinion is just fine, if they aren't shitty. I had 0 problems with my Sunday mounts and they didn't get stuck ... more »

Then they would have to make more frames, and some of them wouldn't sell, then they'd be stuck with more frames with brake mounts since the majority of riders (here at least) ride brakeless. They'd be losing out on money by not selling the frames with ... more »

You'll probably need a new hub, or at least axle, too. A lot of times when the dropout bends, it takes the axle with it too, so now both are bent. If that's the case, when you get new forks, your front wheel will sit in the dropouts weird. Not a big ... more »

It sucks though, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Seth losing all that stuff isn't shitty.

2 Motorcycles, bike parts, and some other possessions. Not everything. The motorcycles I'm pretty sure are what accounted for most of the cost because I read it was around 20 grand.

You need a new fork. Bending it back will just weaken the metal. And before you ask, Odyssey or Sunday forks are the way to go /thread.

I don't know much about what happened to the cat, but I understand it NEEDED surgery. You can live without possessions, but who knows if that cat would have many years without the surgery. Live > possessions, no matter if it's an animal or human. ... more »

The Stranger is basically a Cult Match v2 with beefed up flanges. Which honestly, if you run a hub guard, fucking the flanges up shouldn't be an issue anyway. If you don't use a hub guard, the Stranger would be able to handle anything you dish out at ... more »

I grind A LOT, so does my one friend with the 7 year old Mix, and neither of our axles are bent at all. Don't get the Remix though. the axle is a lot more hollow & the bearings are smaller & shittier. Match or Match v2 is the way to go

Added reply in a thread Hub recommendations 10/21/2014 11:03 PM

Cult Match > Profile any day. With Profile, you're paying twice as much just for a loud hub that will develop a wobble after awhile. Cult Match will hold up to whatever you throw at it. Mine's 2 years old now with no issues, and it's the same thing ... more »

I don't know what else it would be then, grease the bolts slightly maybe? If it's only happening with that stem, that tells me it's not anything else on the bike. Ovalized head tube would have been my guess, but if it doesn't make noise with your other ... more »

You can get the BSD rear hub in 14mm male you know. Personally I'm well aware that 14mm female is stronger than 14mm male, but I would never run it myself. Just my preference, and I like my rear wheel to actually spin. Every female front hub with press ... more »

Added reply in a thread My S&M Lil Redneck Stem Made Weird Noises. 10/21/2014 6:02 PM

Check for cracks, also check and see if your steerer tube isn't too long for the stem. If the stem's just as tall as the tip of the steerer tube, it could be causing noises. You want the tip of the steerer tube to be just a little under the stem, but ... more »

The only way I'd give a shit about the origin is if someone gave me a time machine so I could back in time and stop whoever coined that term from giving it that name. A j-hop, bronco hop, pro-hop, and whatever else, are fucking stupid. In my opinion ... more »

The proper 180 technique is to not use the word bronco ever again. Ever. Not ever. Never.
