Hard anodized rims will typically last far longer than traditionally painted rims. Also if you keep your pads and your sidewalls clean from dirt, that'll also help. Cause the dirt sticks to it then scratches the paint off overtime.
Hands down Thunderbolts. Only cranks I've ever ridden that still feel brand new after years of riding them
not sure on the name, but an older rider here always used to do them in games of BIKE on banks to fakie. try that, they look sweet that way.
Or go to a bike shop and see if they have any laying around. I know the shop I'm at, we keep those things and put them in a bin with other headset parts for this exact reason. Every now & then someone needs one and doesn't wanna buy a new headset ... more »
One time I injected 5 marijuanas into my ass and got Adam22 pregnant
Might just be the slick center area, but for some reason I don't really like the look of these at all, even though they're not that much different from the regular Path tires
Stranger uses the Remix internals, Cult uses the Mix internals. The Mix used 4 6902 bearings in the hub shell, but the Remix used 4 6802 bearings. I've been riding the Cult Match v1 for 4 years now with no issue, and a friend of mine has been riding ... more »
nah about an hour away but I ride there every now & then
Not the Backstreet Pro, but my friend has the regular Backstreet hub and it skips on him all the time. It's not even a year old yet either. In my experience, they have a good warranty at least. I received a defective front hub a couple years ago. They ... more »
Do it, just watch out for security. I've ridden that spot and one time this huge security guard came running after us and he looked PISSED haha
Holy fuck haha that's gnarly. give em a call, you'll get a response quicker. Emails get lost/marked as spam accidentally. A long time ago my Anorexia cassette shit out and the driver blew up within less than a month of having it and Demolition replaced ... more »
Well yeah, but when the bore of the hub guard is deforming onto the axle as well (as in both my of friends case and my case for my front hub guard) it doesn't seem to help much.
Just threadless ones as far as I know. I once asked Neal from Cult (the guy who designs their parts) why they didn't have threads and he said they ran into issues with it
The guards don't have threads though... I have no idea why but there are photos of them with threads in them, but working at a shop and ordering several of them I can tell you none of them ever had threads in them. They were basically press-on guards ... more »
Yes, but I'd advise against it actually. I only knew 2 people who ever rode the rear hub guard but both of them had the problem of the guard seizing onto the axle and they couldn't get it off very easy.
Correct. Shadow also did a reverse threaded axle "upgrade" for their Rant front hub many years ago, too. The idea there though was to stop your nuts from loosening up when grinding, but when I had the Anorexia cassette it still came loose anyway. This ... more »
Haha I just saw that thread too I've never heard of them breaking frames but I can definitely see how they could. They're definitely slanted forward more than traditional forks are, so that could add to it but the issue with the director forks was at ... more »
Don't flip it if it doesn't need to be flipped though, just take it off and see if it's like this (thanks Cellmember for the photo in a previous thread haha) if it's not, flip it. If it's on correct, just make sure it's tight and it should be okay.
Is the spindle bottoming out against the bolt at all? It looks a bit bigger of a gap than normal. Here's what mine looked like when I first installed them. A little gap is normal and perfectly fine, it usually wears in a bit more overtime. Mine's nearly
Am I the only one who still rides their bars parallel with their forks? I feel like that's not so common anymore, but that's what I do
