Added reply in a thread For those who ride TREE HUBS 3/29/2015 2:50 PM

You can use an external hub guard like the S&M Cymbols with them, you will need to file a bit of an angle on the end of the cones on your hubs though. We have done this for lots of Tree hubs.

We use a Canon T3i DSLR camera for almost all of our edits. Mix between the standard kit lens for long shots and a Rokinon fish eye for up close. Having a good handle to stabilize your camera goes a long way, and a tripod for the long shots. This was ... more »

Also look at the sprocket teeth. If they are starting to shark tooth.... look more like this---> /`( than this---> /```\ they are going to need to be replaced soon. Keep in mind thought that your chain and driver typically wear together so it's ... more »

Fit FAFs are squeeky and come in a ton of colours and sizes.

Added reply in a thread Metal bar ends 3/21/2015 12:47 PM

I just tried a set of Fit Savage bars which have an internal diameter of ~ 18mm (I'm assuming the same as the Vandlebars) and the Animal Bar ends fit. If you want to be extra sure, the ODI bar ends use a really thin wedge and should fit anything. The ... more »

10 minutes I'm sure is some type of world speed record. Yes brakes are not that hard to set up but this is coming from the perspective of someone who is used to working on their bikes and just handling tools in general. Some people do not have any experience ... more »

Added reply in a thread what kind of premium forks is this. 3/21/2015 12:32 PM

Looks like it is off a complete as it looks like a 2-piece steerer. If it's very heavy it's probably a hi-tensile fork and not worth a heck of a lot.

Yeah the pin in your crank arm replaces the sprocket bolt. Something worth upgrading at some point.

Added reply in a thread Cranks and sprocket question 3/16/2015 1:15 PM

If your cranks are threaded for a sprocket bolt (next to RHD on the upper crank arm in this pic) then yes. Otherwise, you need a specific socket drive sprocket. Odyssey and Tree make socket drive sprockets that I know of.

Its a nice frame that you can do anything with. The back end balances in a manual really well. The down tube is ovalized to help resist denting. They also can take a lot of abuse and United has really good warranty service in Canada if you have any issues. ... more »

How does it ride? The geo on this frame is pretty wild. Also what's the clearance like with the short back end and the 2.4 T/A?

Added reply in a thread Is this a good bike? 2/26/2015 4:07 PM

Well, according to the Park Tool Scale in our shop it is actually 22 lbs 14 oz. This is assembled with the brakes on, and grease on all the bolts haha. Bikes usually seem to be a bit heavier than the manufacturers list. I'm not sure exactly how they ... more »

An 18" bike should suit you quite well for your height. Guys, remember that we are not talking about a 20" bike. 18" bikes are definitely not 25 lbs. I just weighed a couple bikes for you and the Verde Cadet is the lightest at 22 lbs 9 oz, the Recruit ... more »

Added reply in a thread my antigram skips out the box 2/22/2015 7:46 PM

Maybe try cleaning it out as well and replacing the grease with a light oil.

Added reply in a thread my antigram skips out the box 2/22/2015 7:16 PM

This can happen to if you mashed up your driver at all from grinding. You may want to take a look inside the the hub shell and see if there's any flat spots from impacts. Usually you can fix those up.

Quite a few of the Speedballs, they are very nice tires. Also sold a couple Mainlines, hearing good things about those too.

Thread that crank bolt back in half way and then hit it with a rubber mallet. This will push your spindle and help remove the crank.
