I am limited to 16 max (without spending massive money because I'd have to get extra engineering) and over 14 is going to add a decent amount of cost. I am not good at all at airing right now but part of this is to get better and have something to ride ... more »

I have ridden one of the Onyx hubs on a mountain bike. The instant engagement is kind of weird but cool

Added reply in a thread Wood or dirt to build a small pump track 4/15/2020 1:29 PM

I am actually doing it around a koi pond and gazebo (the pump track is getting built first though). What tools do I need? I mean I have basic shovels, pickaxe, rake, wheel barrow. I guess a Mcloed would be nice.

I want to build a small pump track in the backyard for fun. Would you build out of dirt or wood? I lean towards dirt because it will be easier to change it as needed but how do I keep weeds off of it. I have to keep it nice looking cause wife.

Added reply in a thread Where should I go with my rear wheel? 4/13/2020 12:53 PM

I grabbed a cheap used Colony off eBay. Is there a good way to check it out by hand before building a wheel?

Added reply in a thread Where should I go with my rear wheel? 4/9/2020 5:54 AM

Cool I am kind of thing about either that or a Cult Match V2 and just keep it cheap. At worst if I don't love freecoasters it will be cheap enough that I don't feel terrible have it hanging around and it could be a back up wheel.

Fair. Let's say a Shadow Optimized or another KHE clone. How are they to work on?

I am currently running a Verde LHD rear wheel. I want to move to RHD. I also haven't tried out a coaster wheel. I currently have Shadow Truss rim as well as the Verde rim I could unlace. Do I keep cheap as possible with the coaster since I have never ... more »

I don't know it seems like a lot of bike shops are just barely hanging on as it is and with the increasing numbers of people out of work who aren't going to be spending money I can't imagine sales are flowing in right now.

So is anyone else worried we will see a lot of shops and possibly companies in BMX shutdown due to a long period of shutdown? We already saw FBM shutdown this year and that was in a time where the economy was buzzing. I am planning on spending a bit ... more »
