Added reply in a thread Funniest BMX joke of all time . Besides sickdude 5/5/2015 4:45 PM

We just got one in the shop, it seems very nice. In Canada the price is only $20 more than the Profile Elite that a lot of guys are running, so I can still see these selling. You've got to understand that this hub is made in the USA, in house, and it ... more »

What, he said he's 5' 8" (1.7m).... going over 21" would definitely be bigger than normal for this height.

Added reply in a thread Bmx tt size 4/30/2015 9:10 PM

I'd probably stick to 20.6"-20.8"

Added reply in a thread Spoke Length Issue... What frickin size dammit. 4/15/2015 9:51 PM

Then I would measure everything yourself, I find that some measurements listed online are not the best.

Added reply in a thread Spoke Length Issue... What frickin size dammit. 4/15/2015 9:45 PM

According to those #s I would use 186 on the drive side and 188 on the non drive side. On the mix cassette hub I'd use 184s because you should always round those numbers down. The 185.4mm is to the very top of the spoke head, so 184s would be best.

Added reply in a thread Similar frames to FIT MARV 4/14/2015 9:11 PM

The Wifi and Marv are almost identical. Both are / were made in Taiwan. If you liked your Marv you should check out the Wifi. Also, contact the shop where you bought your frame about warranty, they may be able to help out!

You should contact the shop you bought it at, they can likely provide you with a duplicate receipt. If it is actually brand new, they should also take a look at it for you and let you know what's going on. It may be a warranty situation.

There's not much difference between the Dugan and Mac Sig besides right hand / left hand drive. They change up a few of the parts and the Mac comes with pegs and a hub guard but neither is really specific to any riding style. The Benny Sig does have ... more »

Added reply in a thread best 2015 complete under $600 4/9/2015 3:38 PM

I'd get the Dugan if you are around 5'9" - 6' 2". It's better because it is set up left hand drive but has a full size 21" frame more suitable for taller riders. The left hand drive gearing will be better later on when you want to throw pegs on the right ... more »

The Mac Sig is 21" and right side drive. Best for taller riders, who ride left foot forward. The Mac Sig is 21" and left side drive. Best for taller riders, who ride right foot forward. The Benny Sig is 20.75" and right side drive with 4 pegs. Best for ... more »

Added reply in a thread Forks! Federal Drop v2 or Demolition Elite 3/31/2015 6:04 PM

Talk to the shop you bought your bike from about a warranty. Fit will probably offer you a crash replacement discount on their aftermarket Fit or S&M forks. They are usually quite solid about this. From Fit's website: Lifetime Warranty Upgrade If ... more »

Yes, we work with all the major Canadian distros. We're also doing a big order with them right away so we could grab you one if they have it in stock. They don't have a live inventory on their site so we'd just have to call them.

Added reply in a thread Cult freecoaster. 3/29/2015 9:46 PM

We've sold a bunch of the Cult Coasters and haven't heard of any problems with them. One of our team guys, Sean Tiffin has one and it's been good for him although he rides his cassette more than the coaster. I know that they are a smooth, solid feeling ... more »

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.

Added reply in a thread Any advice on filming? 3/28/2015 8:36 AM

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 »

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 »
