Added reply in a thread 160mm Cranks thoughts? 6/11/2016 2:05 PM
If you're on 170mm cranks right now and they feel to big I'm sure 160mm cranks would work for you. I'm about the same size and I ride 165mm cranks with 4 pegs. Although I do notice them feeling a bit small sometimes, it's definitely not in a bad way. ... more »
Added reply in a thread Soke Length? Gyro size? 6/10/2016 5:35 PM
Measure the whole spoke including the thread and bend. That should get you pretty close. If I were to guess I would say it should be around 186mm. For the gyro parts, really anything will work except one of those all in one kits you had. You need to ... more »
Added reply in a thread Soke Length? Gyro size? 6/10/2016 2:40 PM
Taking off the spoke and measuring it is probably a better idea. For the gyro, I don't think the one you have listed will work. It was designed for older frames without integrated headsets. You'll actually need a bunch of parts to set it up, including ... more »

Ha crazy even I didn't know that. I guess their website says Black, Polished, Gold or Green in LHD.

Look for an entry level bike with a smaller top tube size. Something around 20" or 20.25" will be fine! Sealed bearings are a plus, and in general the more chromoly in the frame, fork and bar, the stronger & lighter your bike will be.

Added reply in a thread Big guys riding not so big bikes 6/5/2016 3:18 PM
Ideally you'd be riding a 21" or longer frame, with larger bars. If it's working for you now then it's no big deal, if you are able to upgrade though, it does make sense.

Park Tool Grease is nice. Just ask at your LBS what they use, and I'm sure they can help you out. Grease is really important for building and maintaining your bikes.
Added reply in a thread Do danscomp complete bikes come built? 5/31/2016 12:31 PM
When bikes come in boxes, yes the cranks are assembled and the forks are on, but generally you want to take that apart, and apply grease to the crank spindle and in the headset. We also usually take out all the stem bolts and apply grease to those too, ... more »

All the tires you listed above should fit fine. I'm not 100% on the Eclat tires, but they should be good too.

The Centre Axle in the 3/8" female Profile Elite hub is Aluminum. It is not suggested for peg use. You'll definitely want the 14mm male Axle for any peg use as it is Chromoly if you go with the Elite hub. With the Profile Mini hubs, you can get a Chromoly ... more »

One of my favourite frames for riding street! I was riding one before I swapped to an S&M Bonesaw! Since you're in Canada we can ship you one for free if you don't have a good local. http://www.bmxtransition.com/Frames-S-M-Bikes

You can build any rims and hubs up for the most part, our mechanic just always comments how cinema hubs and rims build together very nicely.

Folding tires got more expensive and started going the way of the dodo bird. Your BTM must be a bit older if it can barley fit your tire, they have made the back ends wider on newer BTMs as well as most new frames. Good tires that come in smaller sizes... ... more »
