They were all awesome. My vote would be for Van Homan, then Dennis Enarson.

Switch is when you spin or throw your non-natural way. A spin out of a grind is considered hard when your back tire is spinning towards the ledge / rail, making it well.. hard. Easy is the opposite, your back tire is moving away from the ledge. Switch ... more »

At 5 you're definitely looking at a 16" it could even be a little big depending on his size and confidence with it. If you're looking to get him in to racing, BMX race bikes are different. He would either be riding a Micro or a Mini depending again on ... more »

Ahh good call, didn't read that carefully enough. If there's a new spring and ball you're right the axle doesn't need to be replaced.
Added reply in a thread Freecoaster Slipping 8/30/2016 11:56 PM
It's likely that your clutch is worn on the inside from the ball bearings it's riding on. You definitely do not want to degrease anything. Try replacing the clutch, and if possible the axle as well. Then repack with a lot of fresh grease and it should ... more »
Added reply in a thread Head Tube Angle suggestion for a Park/Street beginner...??? 8/28/2016 2:30 PM
You're a beginner, I wouldn't worry about it. Just find a frame that you like and you'll be fine. There's not a huge difference between 75-75.5.

GSport Uniguard will work and comes in 10mm. It just sits outside your frame. Another option is something like the S&M Cymbal DS guard. This will sit on the 14 mm part of your axle, you will just need to add an adapter to the 10mm bolt so that it ... more »
Added reply in a thread Protecting spokes? 8/28/2016 10:42 AM
That's not going to protect your spokes. I think that's just a BS piece of plastic that's supposed to stop your derailleur from running in to your spokes on a cheap mtb or road bike. In my experience, when most people are blowing a lot of spokes it's ... more »

I'm running the Animal GLH 2.25 up front and S&M Speedball 2.1 in the back. Love this setup for street riding.

Also, just saw an ad on here for these: http://bmxunion.com/daily/madera-bmx-lightning-bolts/ Looks like a similar product from Madera. I am assuming these will only work in Profile or Madera hubs as the thread in them is different than other hubs.

The front ones currently only work with Animal Hubs, just a heads up.
Added reply in a thread Best rear hub guard??? 8/10/2016 10:40 AM
S&M Cymbal will fit on virtually any hub. It will definitely fit on the Fit Aitken 1. FBM's chromoly hub guard is also very good, it won't have the nice shape of the Cymbal though. I ride 4 Cymbals, they weren't cheap but they are the best.
Added reply in a thread Are 75$ tires worth it ? 8/9/2016 10:26 AM
Heard good things about the Volume Vaders. Current tire set up is Animal GLH 2.25 in front and S&M Speedball 2.1 in the back. The GLH is super grippy and the Speedball slides just enough to kick it around, and is small enough to keep up the speed. ... more »

Take some time off and do some other stuff. Come back to the bike when you feel like it's time. I've been riding less BMX this summer compared to last year. I spent a few months with only 1 or 2 sessions on my bike. Lately I've been getting excited about ... more »
Added reply in a thread Pros and cons of frames... 7/27/2016 11:49 AM
I rode both the BTM and the Hardway. I switched back from my Hardway to the BTM because it was lighter. The Hardway did feel very solid though, so some may prefer it for that. The other two frames are made in Taiwan, so they will be less expensive vs. ... more »

Added reply in a thread is the shadow raptor clutch the same as the freemix ? 7/23/2016 10:34 AM
95% sure it's the same. They both have KHE internals, but slightly different approaches at it. In hubs like this though, the clutch doesn't change.
Added reply in a thread Fit pledge 2016 or Sunday Primer 2016 7/13/2016 10:14 AM
If it was between those two I would choose based on your height. The Fit is higher spec'd but it's only a 20" top tube, so better for shorter riders. I'd say around 5' - 5'5". The Sunday has a 20.5" top tube with big bars, so better for taller riders. ... more »

If you're looking at the Fit Aitken 1, from 2016, it has a 21" top tube. It is WAY too big for you if you are under 5' tall. I would probably stick with a 20" fit as well, but you need one with a smaller frame. Take a look at the Fit Benny 1, Pledge, ... more »
