Added reply in a thread Do i have a single or double wall rim. Two questions in one. 7/17/2015 4:05 PM
Yeah, it's a fork off a complete bike. Most likely it has a chromoly steerer with hi-tensile legs. As long as it is not bent or cracked it will be good to ride. An aftermarket fork will be stronger / lighter.

For a 3 year old a push bike is a better idea. He can learn to balance and get the basics down before stepping up to pedals. There's lot's of push bikes coming out from BMX brands like United, Kink, Verde, etc, they're all very similar and very high ... more »
Added reply in a thread Do i have a single or double wall rim. Two questions in one. 7/16/2015 2:17 PM
Rim is a single wall. There is definitely only a "single" wall there, not two. Forks look like stock forks off a lower level complete. If you take a picture of the fork steerer that will narrow it down. If it's a 2-pc steerer it's definitely a stock ... more »

If you're grinding on your drive side with no hub guard another thing you should check is if there's any damage to the inside of the hub that's causing the driver to get stuck instead of roll smoothly.

The first thing I would upgrade are the tires. Best bang for your buck. Also that seat / seat post and the pedals.
Added reply in a thread Question regarding frames 7/3/2015 2:28 PM
Your frame looks like a 2013 Fit complete by the way. You could narrow it down by measuring the top tube and that would give you a good idea what level it is by comparing what was available that year.
Added reply in a thread Question regarding frames 7/3/2015 2:27 PM
An aftermarket frame will have all the extra features like heat treatment and potentially other things like invest cast parts, integrated chain tensioners and details that you may not get on a complete frame. Another big difference is the warranty. Companies ... more »

Come on guys, no one's getting rich off stickers or shirts. Brayden posted a thread about a brand that he's stoked on and delivered him good customer service, why all the hate?

EVO IIs have less clearance than some other brake designs. Three brakes that I've know to work well with 2.4 tires are the Demolition Vulcans, Odyssey Springfields and the Kink Desist brakes.

The only thing about a hitch rack on a Civic is that it will likely rub the ground when you are coming off any type of steep-ish incline.
Added reply in a thread profile elite vs mini 6/16/2015 4:46 PM
Lots of different hubs can develop wobble. It's usually fixable with a small shim if this happens. If I were choosing between hubs right now I'd either get the Minis (have them on my personal bike) or the Z-Coaster because it's about the same price as ... more »
Added reply in a thread 10t coaster 6/13/2015 6:49 PM
I'm not sure if I follow the logic in what you just posted. A 30 T will make it harder to pedal, if you bump it to a 10 T driver, this will make it easier to pedal. Which are you trying to achieve?

The FBM hub guard should work fine, it is universal.

Not much you can do about it, also not really a big deal. If it does crack all the way through, hit up United for a warranty. Always worth seeing if they can help out. http://unitedbikeco.com/pages/warranty

No, Tree does not, and the Profile ones would not work with a Tree Sprocket. Also, I'm not even sure if a Tree 22mm spline drive sprocket would work with the Columns. I know that the United sprockets that I've tried will not work with them. Something ... more »
