I started off with one of these. It wasn't this nice though. I got a used frame and fork at a yard sale and built it with parts off a Huffy.

My dad got me one of these at a police auction. I rode this frame on and off until I broke it in 1993 ... more »

I'm starting to think you should just go set yourself on fire. Self immolation is fucking cool. You'll be my hero.

Added reply in a thread Which U brake set to get? 1/28/2015 1:11 PM

I do run Springfield's, and they are fucking tits. If you have to qualify something with "Never tried them myself but...", you're not really helping anyone out.

Springfield's Ghost pads Monolever Quick slic I like having brakes sometimes (trails) and not others (the rest of the time). My setup comes off my bike, or goes back on in like 5 minutes.

I read that the engineers were up in here letting that e-peen swing. I have a spare set of springs and might try this. I really hate skipping, and since I'm an engineer, I'm fucking rich bitches. If I wear my hub out I'll buy another.

Added reply in a thread female axle and pegs 12/24/2014 3:58 AM

Madera and pegs here. Seems legit I guess, but I don't go crazy with it. Just a few double pegs here and there. I just recently switched to the steel female axle, but I haven't even been able to ride it yet.

Added reply in a thread has anyone air travelled with the Bike? 11/28/2014 11:12 AM

This all depends on the airline. Some charge for a bike, others only charge you if it's overweight/oversized. A bike box is gonna get hit either way. Your best bet is gonna be the golf club bag, or some other large duffle. Also try to keep it light so ... more »

Added reply in a thread What ca you tell me about front hub guards? 11/28/2014 11:08 AM

If you use plastic pegs, use the gland, if you use steel, get the cymbal. I kinda think that mis-matched peg/hub guard material feels like shit.

Added reply in a thread Springfield brake mods 10/24/2014 1:14 PM

Yeah. If I use brakes it's Springfield's unless I need more clearance, then I use Eclats. Being able to take them on and off quivky is fits.

You'll be fine bending it back. You'll pop a steer tube long before that dropout breaks.

Apparently there was a shitty batch of springs. My kid broke like two in a week. I Got about 5 spares at a hardware store.

Added reply in a thread Odyssey keychain wow 10/16/2014 2:33 PM

If you're not stupid, the keychains break just fine with decent tools. I have one of the cheaper Park chain tools and I strongly recommend it. Fuck fighting cheap chain tools. If you're not stupid and lubricate it regularly, the keychains can be smooth ... more »

If dooodz tried to jack your scooter, he was trying to do you a favor. You should carry a thank you card.

Added reply in a thread Start Round Wheels again? Y/N? 9/29/2014 12:14 PM

I'm not positive, but I would guess that the features that make the Tree hubs good are patented (I.e., the method they use to have spokes on both sides the same length without dishing the rim).

Boulder. Ride Boulder or you suck. Also, Roxboro is really nice for scenery, but the park itself is so-so. Also, on the odd chance you're into Hippy golf, there is a really nice course near Arvada.
