With more and more complete bikes coming stock with a freecoaster, a lot of first time riders may be starting out on a freecoaster bike. Has any one out there had this experience? What was it like learning BMX diving straight in to a FC bike? Did you ... more »

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.

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?

Got to love Alberta. Brand new concrete park in a town of less than 3000 people.

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 »

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

Added reply in a thread Sprocket Concerns 5/24/2015 4:49 PM
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 »

Yeah, I bet it is.

Tree makes a Tree Lite Spline Drive sprocket in 22mm, 30T, Black. If you want a different colour, you could just get a bolt drive. The centre bore on a Tree Lite sprocket is 22mm and it comes with a 19mm adapter. If you're getting Thunderbolts, the Tree ... more »
Added reply in a thread New fork and front wheel 5/24/2015 11:07 AM
The Odyssey R-Series forks come in two offsets, 25mm and 32mm, hence R25 and R32. Offset refers to how far forward your front wheel is from your frame. Bringing your wheel in closer will make it feel more responsive, turning will be twitchier and front ... more »
Added reply in a thread Cranks spindle 5/21/2015 11:27 AM
The spindle hole on that sprocket is actually 24mm, it just comes with a 19mm sprocket collar so out of the box you can run it 24mm or 19mm. If you want to run that sprocket you'd have to grab a 22mm sprocket collar. I checked the La Casa 22mm sprocket ... more »

If I were buying a bike used and I didn't really know what I was looking for, I would try and find a good deal on a complete bike that's about a year old or so. Preferably something that's as stock as possible, as likely a kid would have gotten it, not ... more »

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.
