It still has some life left, "some" as in "start saving for a new one asap"

Noo it might be a bit too short, I'm not too sure though. It's more your preference cause I know people shorter than you on a 21" frame, and people just as tall as you on a 20.5" Some people say if you're 6ft you should at least have a 21", but 20.85" ... more »

full chromoly frame, chromoly bars & fork, sealed hubs, double wall rims, and 20.85" TT.. Seems pretty good but the top tube could be a little longer for you. The bike itself will hold up just as well as a stock bike will. meaning you will eventually ... more »

Did not know it has steel helicoils, interesting. I'll have to keep that in mind if my BSD ever shits the bed beyond repair which btw I do recommend as well. I guess I fucked up somehow when I put the bearings back in when I painted mine, even though ... more »
Added reply in a thread Front hubs 7/26/2014 10:17 PM
Out of those, I would get the Animal or the Primo because I personally dislike the Odyssey's aluminum center axle. Had bad experiences with previous hubs that used an aluminum center axle even when using grease/anti-seize because they still got super ... more »

Pretty positive the cranks are 19mm very rarely will stock bikes come with 22mm cranks & I don't think I've ever seen a pair of 22mm 8 spline cranks
Added reply in a thread weird frame ?? 7/25/2014 10:31 PM
Old Fly frame sounds about right. I just peeked over at bmxmuseum and there were some with Spanish BBs & standard headsets.
Added reply in a thread BB problem 7/25/2014 7:46 PM
Bearings can be used over and over, I think Dave on here has been running the same BB for several years without issue. Greasing them can go a long way, I grease mine every couple months and they still feel brand new when popped out. To answer the OP's ... more »

Added reply in a thread Double pegs.. 7/24/2014 9:41 PM
I was always taught to get your front on first, then your back. Not like a straight up tooth pick then bring your back up, but within a split second you know? Reason being is you can leverage yourself up onto something this way sometimes, and most importantly, ... more »
Added reply in a thread Last back wheel thread lol! 7/24/2014 8:21 PM
Go for it, but if you can spring $10 more for a rim I would do that. I'm positive the Rhynolite will hold up, but if you thrash your wheels I would get something just a bit stronger personally.

My exact setup for the last 3 & a half years, I love it.
Added reply in a thread Odyssey Springfield Brake -first impressions- 7/24/2014 8:17 PM
They're sooo simple to set up. I mean I don't find normal brakes that hard but Springfield's are so easy. Only problem I've seen with them are the springs breaking for some people, but like you said they're budget brakes. And a replacement arm would ... more »

I use one of these at the bike shop
Added reply in a thread Better engagement??? 7/23/2014 7:38 PM
you can double a c-clip, I've done it before and all it does is makes your hub louder and driver seem tighter since the pawls won't retract as easily. won't do anything for engagement though
Added reply in a thread Better engagement??? 7/23/2014 7:19 PM
Well both hubs have 4 pawls, so I'm guessing the ratchet ring might be different in the rogue, making for less points of engagement. or it has to do with the shitty single wraparound spring in the demolition hub, the mix has individually sprung springs ... more »

Well to be fair, FEDEXdoobie is right. Skinnier tires are better for racing, they roll faster & weigh less for starters.
