We're a ways off 95, but Northside in Norfolk is a blast. Also Mt. Trashmore and Williams Farm in Virginia Beach.

Barcode Nice, classic geometry if you like to go fast, crazy stuff, and just looks good. Oh, and its a Barcode.

I use a Bell Manifold I got at wal mart. It's mold in shell, so really light. I order a Pro-tec street lite, but I wasn't really stoked on the craftsmanship. My cheaper bell actually fits better and looks better, and they both pass the same certification ... more »
Added reply in a thread Seat post problem help 7/13/2015 7:53 AM
The issue you'll have with heat is that the aluminum seat post will expand more than the steel seat tube when you heat it. That will make the seat post harder to get out. It might, however make the penetrant more likely to penetrate. You could try going ... more »

Is your chain line pretty legit? Mine was way screwed up with more than about 3mm of spacer on the drive side.

Looks normal-ish. I've taken mine on and off a million times, but I can't remember if my wedge cluster hangs over like that or not. You could just use a shorter spacer. I use the shorter drive side spacer and another like 4mm spacer. The spindle bolt ... more »
Added reply in a thread For those who run Tree Hubs... 7/6/2015 9:28 AM
If you can afford it, the steel Tree hub guards are really nice. The ones that come with the hubs don't even protect the entire hub body.

There are no threads in that cable stop. To tighten your brakes, you need to pull the barrel adjuster away from the cable stop, spin that nut in, then let go of the barrel adjuster. It's kinda lame, but that's how S&M/Fit's welded mounts work.

yeah man, just get Thunderbolts. It's not worth trying to be hipster about. They are that much better than everything else.

That fixes a totally separate problem. Spoke tension deforms the hub shell and makes the bearing bore OD too large. Odyssey/Gsport set the flanges further inboard to help with this, and straight pull hubs are just completely different and don't have ... more »

Added reply in a thread Which 24in cruiser? 6/17/2015 5:07 AM
I'm more of a Model C dude myself. IDK though, cause If I wanted a bike bigger than a 20, I would get a 22, and if that wasn't big enough, or if I just wanted to cruise around, I would get a Fairdale Taj.

The thing is, I understand that manufacturing stuff to tighter tolerances cost money. I don't recall the exact amount, but adding a decimal place to tolerance (i.e., going from +/- .01 to +/- .001) something like triples the cost. So the reason some ... more »
