Added reply in a thread best brake system 10/20/2014 12:33 AM

Past me knows what's up. While this thread is bumped (a rare moment where it was bumped properly & not just some idiot quoting a 5 year old post saying something retarded), I will mention my experience with brakes when I rode them up until a few ... more »

I just remembered a really funny story for you guys. wasn't funny at the moment because I was legit dumbfounded because this kid was serious. Semi-related to the thread. So, this kid who used to ride in my town ordered the Animal Javelin cassette hub ... more »

Added reply in a thread Odyssey/Danscomp WTF? 10/19/2014 8:07 PM

the 1999 brakes were on there, I remember cause I looked them up a few months ago to show a customer them at the shop. A LOT of the colors are in the matte kelly green colorway though, those were in 2011. I wonder if they had too many of that color and ... more »

I assume you mean a bunch of the grips & a few tires? I think the rest of the stuff has always been on there. But yeah, I remember when Albes found a bunch of old Odyssey Reloader coasters on a shelf or something they long forgot. It happens, I think ... more »

Just go over what's currently together. This is just a photo off Google, but it'll work. Your bike will most likely come in a box partially assembled as you see in this photo

So pull it out, and remove all the paper wrapped around it, cut all ... more »

I don't understand some people's logic haha. If there's a gap in the dropouts around the axle bolt, you would think common sense would tell him there needs to be something in there.

I know a kid who has Primo Balance rims and never once trued them so they have a good wobble to them, and therefore Primo sucks according to him. Then again this is the same kid who has the Eastern Venus hubs front & back, refused to use the 14mm ... more »

Greasing a chain is horrible for it. You should only use fine lubes. And there's your problem, the Kool full chain & half link chain are not the same thing. Half links are weaker for one (unless you tend to hit your chain when grinding, they take ... more »

Added reply in a thread What Color frame with these parts? 10/19/2014 5:52 PM

Can you even wipe your own ass? You just made 3 different threads asking other people what you should do, when the answer is something only you will know.

Customer service is good, my friend broke his Cult chain & they sent him a bunch of spare links and stickers, no charge. Their designer Neal Wood is a good guy from what I see too. I love following him on instagram cause he posts all the designs ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pls Shed some light on the tree v2/v3 cassette hub 10/19/2014 3:35 PM

Ohian has them I'm pretty certain, maybe he'll see this and give you some input. I never rode them so I can't say, but spec-wise they seem dialed. Only think I don't like is it uses a single spring wraparound design driver but that doesn't automatically ... more »

Added reply in a thread Primo 2pc Powerbite cranks. 10/18/2014 5:31 PM

I don't know if I'd go that far, because honestly I've seen countless snapped chromoly cranks & even some snapped Wombolt/Twombolt cranks. But I've never actually seen a broken pair of Powerbites. If you Google it, only the Hollowbite cranks show ... more »

As long as no logos, heat treatment techniques, or patents aren't violated, then any company can make whatever the hell they want. Look at the Fit Dugan bars & Subrosa Villicus bars Fit: Rise: 8.75" Width: 28.5" Backsweep: 12° Upsweep: 1° Crossbar ... more »

Added reply in a thread 18" complete for 8 year old, Haro, Fit, Kink, Verde? 10/18/2014 1:39 PM

I would go with the Fit or the Verde, definitely Verde if he's planning on learning how to actually ride & do grinds and stuff because the Verde has a 14mm axle in the rear, the Fit only has a 3/8" If he's not going to be grinding or anything like ... more »

No, I broke my friend's cousin's retarded uncle's dog's doggyfriend's owner's son's friend's 6 year old Eastern Traildigger frame jumping off a parking garage roof to flat! Clearly Eastern is a huge piece of shit and everything they make is the worst ... more »

Added reply in a thread I got banned from riding my bmx 10/18/2014 12:45 PM

Agreed. Your attitude has a lot to do with how a cop will act toward you. Whether we bmx riders like it or not, 90% of the time when we go ride street, we're breaking the law by trespassing. Telling a cop to fuck off and go do his job is contradictory, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Primo 2pc Powerbite cranks. 10/18/2014 12:31 PM

It can happen, not so much nowadays with the strength of parts. But that's the good thing about chromoly cranks in a way, it'll bend before it snaps. Aluminum will just break. But the Powerbites are solid aluminum as opposed to the Hollowbites which ... more »

Added reply in a thread "signature" parts 10/18/2014 12:27 PM

Signature parts are usually either the result of whoever designs the company's parts sitting down with the rider, and asking them what they want. Or they might just be a part with a popular rider's name on it to make it sell. *cough cough Premium CK ... more »
