You'll need the wrench to properly tighten it afterwards anyway. Either buy one or take it to a shop and have them adjust it. one of these, I think it's a 17 or 19, I forget offhand.

it's not terrible, especially if you're just starting out. A lot of people act like hi-tensile steel is complete garbage and I mean, it's not chromoly, but it's not paper either.

Sounds like you need a handjob

No, THIS post right here is why. Laugh a little, he made a joke and you're acting like an old fart who doesn't know how to have fun. Free handjobs for everyone, not your first choice but you'll take it anyway.
Added reply in a thread best hubs for grinding? 10/19/2016 7:30 PM
Most female front hubs should be fine, avoid ones with 6802 bearings and/or aluminum center axles though (unless it has steel helicoils, but I'd advise chromoly anyway) Rear though you want either 14mm male or 14mm female, avoid 3/8" female altogether. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Switch footed? 10/17/2016 9:05 PM
if you spin to the left and throw your bars clockwise, you're actually correctly footed for doing 180 bars & truck drivers. so you got that going for you, which is nice only issue is your bike will probably drop to one side sometimes while learning. ... more »

Pretty much this, don't be afraid to click that shit in too. Biggest problem I see with people is they're too scared to do the full x-up. As long as you clear your knees & feet, you'll be fine. I love doing x-ups, seriously underrated trick and not ... more »

just replace them when needed, as long as they're not cut up or falling apart or something like that, you can reuse them all you want. electrical tape works too, just wrap it at least twice around then poke a hole where the valve goes.
Added reply in a thread Why do my bars feel so short? 10/13/2016 8:55 PM
Could get a stem with more rise. What stem do you have currently? Front load or top load? If it's front load, most top load stems usually have a higher rise, so that'd be your best bet.

I usually just take a penny to the clip piece where the open end is and push against it until it pops off, then to get it back on I push against the closed end

the rest of his bike is different. he might have a top load stem and/or different geometry in his frame that makes his bike sit higher. also might have a longer steerer tube

I had the Mind Control v1, which is (I think anyway) the same as the v2 just without the recessed top cap area. Never slipped on me at all, but I got rid of it after about a year cause I felt it looked too plain. The Shredneck is just a revised Redneck ... more »

You guys aren't reading the question right. He's asking for a non-wraparound spring driver. The Odyssey Hazard drivers are wraparound, he wants an individually sprung one. I'm not sure if you'll be able to find one though just because individually sprung ... more »
Added reply in a thread Cone washers for female axle (15mm outer dia female axle) 10/9/2016 6:21 PM
Yeah, you could just get whatever press fit hardware and machine them down if they're too wide. As long as they're 15mm and look relatively close to how your old ones looked, then they should fit. Or buy a hub guard. Takes up the space and you get a ... more »

That bike is already pretty decent from the start, so just upgrade as needed when/if parts start to break. The only thing I'd say you could change right away are the comfort things like grips, pedals, tires, maybe seat. Also maybe taller bars (or smaller) ... more »
