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?

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 »

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

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.

Added reply in a thread How do i remove bar ends without breaking them 2/15/2015 10:36 PM

Use a thin screwdriver. Put it sideways and use the shaft of the screwdriver (not the blade) to wedge off the bar end as much as you can and then pull it off with your hands. We do this all the time at the shop.

Nope, they're out of stock too. If you can find the short sleeves you could always cut your pegs a bit shorter, just an idea haha.

Added reply in a thread JCPC Help (tree bars review also) 2/4/2015 9:48 PM

The Pins on JC PCs are fairly long so that might be normal. Are they the same on either pedal? You should still be able to get the pins out, just apply some pressure to the nut while you're getting the pins loose.
