Added reply in a thread 4130 cromo or full cromo? 8/20/2016 12:24 PM

Just to clarify, 4130 (more correctly, SAE 4130) is a very specific grade of chromium-molybdium alloy steel with very specific chemical composition requirements. All 4130 is comply, but not all comply is 4130. Not meeting the 4130 chem comp requirements ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bmx weight, whats considered the best? 8/15/2016 10:35 AM

To me at least, anything under about 23 feels twitchy, (like if you turned the sensitivity on a PS4 controller too high), and anything over about 26 feels sluggish. I aim for 24-25.

Added reply in a thread G-sport vs. Sun Ringle Chrome Quality 8/2/2016 6:16 AM

Chrome just kinda sucks these days. Apprerently, the process they used back in the days wasn't very environmentaly friendly, and the new, safer processes are more difficult to do correctly. I haven't seen a single, new chrome rim that didn't have some ... more »

Fuck yeah riding pegs fucks a bike up. I'll kill a frame with dents long before I break one.

Added reply in a thread I just realized no heat treatment 6/23/2016 1:55 PM

Wait, so your whole argument is that because only one company (which happens to appear to be one of the more successful companies in BMX right now), it's not worth while? I don't know why more companies don't use PWHT (and neither do you). I can speculate ... more »

I'm not going to argue with anecdotes. We can go back and forth with the "My cousin's girlfriend's brother Bubby broke a Shitstack BFM, so they suck" all day. The metallurgy doesn't lie. You get better mechanical properties from heat treating welded ... more »

OMFG. How about this, prove yourself right. But, since you can't because you're talking out your ass, I'll go ahead and prove you wrong: The phrase "Heat treatment" actually refers to a number of processes which refine the grain structure in metals. ... more »

Odyssey. Widemouth Pitchforks have more tire clearance if that's you thing though. You can't go wrong with either of those. Fuck all those other forks though.

Exactly. I might be a bit of a Sunday fanboy, but I like the Soundwave chainstays. Just move that shit completely out of the way.

Added reply in a thread BMX Bike Of The Future! 6/9/2016 2:58 AM

Cromoly is something like 1% chromium. Stainless steel closer to 15%. Cromoly is good, but there is better. The thing that makes stainless appealing to me is the rigidity. Chainstay skidplates are a bit stone age.

I ride 170s, and I couldn't tell you what exactly feels different, but I definitely notice. 175s just feel like dookie to me now. If Odyssey ever does 165 LHD Thunderbolts, I'll probably try those.

Fit geometry is generally pretty dialed. The components are pretty good. Nothing too crazy, just good. I love Fit completes.
