Added reply in a thread Pros and cons of frames... 7/27/2016 11:49 AM
I rode both the BTM and the Hardway. I switched back from my Hardway to the BTM because it was lighter. The Hardway did feel very solid though, so some may prefer it for that. The other two frames are made in Taiwan, so they will be less expensive vs. ... more »

I don't think it was a bit much, he just did something incredible, and at 16 even. The lady in the cart, doesn't understand what the significance of that spot is, so you can understand why she was so upset. It was honestly a little crazy for her to keep ... more »
Added reply in a thread is the shadow raptor clutch the same as the freemix ? 7/23/2016 10:34 AM
95% sure it's the same. They both have KHE internals, but slightly different approaches at it. In hubs like this though, the clutch doesn't change.
Added reply in a thread Fit pledge 2016 or Sunday Primer 2016 7/13/2016 10:14 AM
If it was between those two I would choose based on your height. The Fit is higher spec'd but it's only a 20" top tube, so better for shorter riders. I'd say around 5' - 5'5". The Sunday has a 20.5" top tube with big bars, so better for taller riders. ... more »

Cool bike! Here's a suggestion for your wheelset. Definitely not a cheap way to go, but would be awesome and you could keep that sweet freewheel: http://www.profileracing.com/estore/product.php?productId=714/

Added reply in a thread Fit bike Aitken 1 or Fitbike "eighteen" 6/29/2016 3:52 PM
If you're looking at the Fit Aitken 1, from 2016, it has a 21" top tube. It is WAY too big for you if you are under 5' tall. I would probably stick with a 20" fit as well, but you need one with a smaller frame. Take a look at the Fit Benny 1, Pledge, ... more »
Added reply in a thread Mixed opinions on coaster greasing? 6/28/2016 12:36 PM
The grease just needs to get all over the metal surfaces that will grind in to each other. Just got to an automotive supply store and ask for a general purpose grease if nothing is available for a local bike shop.

I can do an extra $10 off the cranks, just use the FREESHIP code on the website, then I'll take another $10 off for you if you put your order through. I'm guessing that was either Jordan Siudy or Riley Abramyk that you met, they are both from here and ... more »

You'll adjust to it and realize pretty quickly that it's way better. Do it.
Added reply in a thread So anyone break the odyssey clutch yet? 6/27/2016 10:45 PM
They seem to hold up really well. I recommend looking at the GSPORT Uniguard in 10mm for a DS hubguard if you're running 4 pegs. It seems to be the best solution with the 10mm bolt, and 14mm shelf on that side of the hub.
Added reply in a thread Sold my Bike 6/27/2016 10:42 PM
The 165mm cranks are more expensive because they are newer and because of the cnd $ they cost more to purchase. If you want to grab the 170s I'll hook up free shipping for you. Animal cranks also come with an install tool and grease which is pretty nice. ... more »

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.
Added reply in a thread Need help choosing a bike 6/8/2016 4:05 PM
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 profile elite question help 6/8/2016 11:56 AM
http://www.profileracing.com/estore/product.php?productId=398 Or contact your local shop, and they can order it in for you. Like Jay said above, make sure to get the 14mm axle if you plan on riding pegs.
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.
