Added reply in a thread Tree Rear Hub 4/18/2015 4:57 AM

Oh yeah, I forgot about the smoothness. Tree hubs spin for days. Very very little resistance, and they (to me at least) are noticeably faster. Yeah, they are expensive, and Madera hubs are pretty decent for the money, but if you have the spare loot, ... more »

I don't really notice except when I fakie, and in that case, the tree is a lot easier. I suck bad at fakies though. I kinda think the LHD Madera I got is kinda fucked up. It was skipping shitloads until I put a second set of springs in. My son is riding ... more »

After I broke my ankle I used one of these. It will just about immobalise your ankle if you lace it tight enough. If you have bone chips floating around, I don't think this will help. those will still hurt. However, if you have some instability (that ... more »

Tree hubs skip about a million time less than Madera/Profile. I've owned two of each (1 LHD and 1 RHD of each)

That looks like some stripper/solvent of some sort wasn't completely cleaned off. I personally would strip completely and restart

Baby powder in your tires. It lets your tube slide around inside the tire and lessens the stress at the beads and stem.

48 hole wheels work best 4x. That spoke length looks about right. The old Peregrine Super Pros were 185mm. You can also measure up your hub and plug those dimensions into a spoke calculator.

yeah. I don't know how old you are, but if you can afford it, get the surgery. Yeah, it's going to cost you time off the bike now. But down the road, you'll lose more time when you get older as it degenerates. Ankles are really hard to fix after they ... more »

I’ve thought about this a lot over the past day or two. I have 11 and 13 year old kids who both ride and are both influenced by things they see on the internet. Between that, and my Libertarian leanings, I think I have a different perspective on this ... more »

I don't necessarily think smoking weed (or letting that Wang swang) in videos is cool. Generally speaking, the dudes who are blowing clouds out of their stem bolts are kinda boring to watch. My point is that I don't really care what people do. I'm not ... more »

nah. Aerospaces were designed to hit a price point below the gsport rims. George wrote a post about that a few weeks ago.

Drug use in videos could make riders that people don't really relate to more relatable. There are a large number of people (myself included, even as a kid) who are really turned off by the pseudo-jock portrayal of some parts of BMX (e.g., contests). ... more »

old thread is old but ghost pads work great as far as actually stopping the bike. The feel like pure, unfiltered shit though

Nose pick is old school. Think foot jam with brakes. Toothpick has been tooth pick for as long as I remember.

but if you ride a 9 inch standover and a 7 inch standover with two inches more seat post, and don't do whips/can cans/anything else where you're trying to get over the top tube, and get a slightly shorter top tube length to make up for the fact that ... more »

Hey! I just totally had the best idea! How about if you worry about you, and I'll worry about me. Edit: I niced it up a bit. I'm just kinda over everyone thinking they need to chip in about how others set their bikes up, what they do, who they fuck, ... more »

So these are the brakes I've used; Evos kinda suck for tire clearance, but feel great with the weaker springs Springfield's are pretty sick if you don't like working on your bike. I went through a few springs when I first had them, but the newer ones ... more »
