This was so much fun, thought I'd throw it up here so you guys can see it. Filmed & edited by Rob Dolecki. Everyone threw down some good stuff for this, big thanks to everyone who made it happen!
Added reply in a thread What bike frame is this??? 11/27/2015 4:20 PM
100% not an S&M Hoder, the BTM frame didn't have brake mounts like that (Pretty sure they were removable) and S&M stamps the serial numbers on the dropouts, not the BB shell.

How many times are you going to be building your first wheel up? 6 times in just this past year, 7 including this one http://www.vitalbmx.com/forums/General-BMX-Talk,2/Whats-better-for-grinding,1300076 http://www.vitalbmx.com/forums/General-BMX-Talk,2/Revenge-ohm-20,1299987 ... more »

The only difference is the non-drive side flange is smaller and the shape of the hub is different. Other than that they are exactly the same.

Sputnic. I think it's an older Skyline but I can't find a good enough photo of one to confirm.

Haha I forgot I posted this here -____- But yeah that was me, I wish they got one of the better ones of those I did cause the pivot on that one was so slow.. Oh well.
Added reply in a thread Best cranks to buy? 11/22/2015 5:57 PM
They weren't pieces of shit, they were very stiff & strong. However, the pinch bolts & the pedal insert thing coming loose is exactly why I think they're inferior to Thunderbolts. That and I don't like them being aluminum for some reason, not ... more »
Added reply in a thread Need help choosing between 2 completes 11/22/2015 3:06 PM
Don't worry about weight, worry about the quality & parts on the bike instead. That said, get the Fit. More chromoly in the bike (chromoly > hi-tensile steel) and everything's sealed.

I hate this rebuttal. Why buy an inferior product just because it's North American made?

Definitely either a Morning 2 or 2.1, or Night 2 Can't tell if it has an integrated race or not from the photo but if it does, then it's a Morning 2.1. Either way, they're old and surprise surprise, old parts can & will break. I've broken 2 pairs ... more »
Added reply in a thread Need help determining if my crank/hub is lhd compatible 11/20/2015 9:28 PM
Are you sure the specs you read were for the 2010 model? Cause I'm not seeing anything that says the hub is able to be converted. If you could post photos of the driver where the pawls & springs are, and the ratchet ring (the inside of the hub where ... more »

Sunday & Odyssey both have rust proof "black magic" coating inside their parts... Not sure how they do that though.

Hoffman hands down. Better parts, more chromoly, all sealed bearings & double wall rims.
Added reply in a thread Anyone ride allen bolt hubs? 11/19/2015 5:35 PM
You have to keep in mind that female bolts like that don't need to be tightened as much as you'd tighten a male axle nut because the female axle bolts have more to grab and hold tight.

I think you're preaching to the choir here. At what point did anyone in this thread state that any of it was a good idea? Nowhere. Everyone's just stating their homemade parts & modifications they've done before. Did it work at the time? If so, it ... more »
Added reply in a thread ECLAT Maverick cranks good design ? 11/18/2015 10:21 PM
You could listen to Brayden recommend them based on the fact that they haven't been recalled (Like the Eclat Aeon cranks) so obviously that alone should mean they're good (Sarcasm) when he's never ridden them & likely knows no one who has... ORRR, ... more »
Added reply in a thread Hollow Chromoly 11/18/2015 7:32 PM
The way it was explained to me once before is it's less prone to bending but more prone to just straight snapping, especially if it's too hollow. Idk how true that is though. A 14mm hollow axle will be fine unless it's mega hollow (4-5mm is okay) but ... more »
