Started new thread WTB: Top Load Stem [UK] 9/4/2020 7:46 AM

Looking for a cheap top load stem, in either black or raw. Ideally something like BSD, Odyssey, Cult, Kink, Sunday, United etc but will consider most legit BMX brands (no OEM parts or stem-shaped-objects from department store bikes). Would prefer one

A sealed US BB will cost you around £20-£25 and will be more durable than the unsealed BB you currently have, however I'd go with pnj's suggestion and fix what you have and save your cash towards another frame. You can pick up a decent used frame pretty ... more »

I had metal Profile guards for the Profile hubs on my old BSD Forever and didn't feel like they slowed grinds at all. I just don't want to bother swapping out cone nuts this time around only to find they may not potentially fit, hence looking at the ... more »

Thanks dude, that's good to know about the Cinema guards. I'll take a look at the Mission ones too.

After sanding you'll need to treat them with something like Krylon Rust Tough , POR-15 or Rust-Oleum Stops Rust to stop the rust coming back.

Thanks for the comments everyone... much appreciated! I'm in Canada right now (St John's NL) and really missing it, so many sick street spots! @supreme - The tyres are decent. Deffo recommended them.

If the post has seized stuck and you don't mind sacrificing it then try this: -Remove seat and pivotal bolt (if you can) -Drill a hole all the way through the post (if pivotal bolt is stuck then drill through it) -Inset a piece of metal through hole

Looks comfy enough, although the vinyl cover might not be as soft as the fabric ones. If you want guaranteed comfort then park your arse on a BSD Slinger (or any of their fat seats)... http://bsdforever.com/products/seats-seatposts/slinger-seat/ The ... more »

This isn't for the BSD hub, just me thinking out loud about female hubs in general... Anyway, it should work: -Remove non drive side cone nut (it may unscrew, or simply slide off) -Put the bolt in the axle slightly (again, non drive side) -Tap bolt with ... more »
