I saw this on bmx-forum and was wondering if anyone on here has had any problems with the Ezra coaster? I doubt the whole hub would just randomly die but ya never know...

I'm on the vital legit list!

Ive read of a couple of Flatland riders starting to wreck them. The engagement system starts to get a little crunchy then it just gives out.

I've heard the thing was amazing. I talked to Seamus about it for a little while, and he said it was awesome.

I highly doubt all of this. There was WAYYYY too much time put into this. That BJ guy on here says he rides 4 pegs with no guards and he says he's been trying to purposely trying to break it, and he can't.

I don't believe it. But I'm not ruling it out either. That's why I'm asking. I know everyone rides different, some parts work fine for one guy and suck for the next

The Flatlander that fucked his i know personally & there was even a video put up on Flatmatters a few weeks after the Ezra came out of him using pedal pressure inbetween tricks & it making all sorts of terrible noises. I havent spoken to him in a while so i dont know if hes given up on it or its given up on him lol! I'll ask him next time i see him on FB & see whats up!

Edit: Just realized.. Ive been on Vital ONE YEAR today! :D :D :D

Other than khe, has any one made an awesome freecoaster with sealed bearings? No because its way fucking hard.
