If the helmet is certified and comfortable for you then it's good to go. My helmet is a S1-Lifer. I like it because it has a small form factor and is dual certified. Also comes with extra liners (one size up and one size down) to really dial in the fitment. ... more »

Safety gear goes a long way for us old guys (I'm 47), I have knee/shin/helmet and I have taken some pretty heavy falls and I keep on going!

I can't deny that long fakies are fun. I can go way further than ever before, I just can't get the rollout or half cab to save my life.

I ordered on 8/27 and didn't receive it until 09/09. I needed specific hub guards and i threw in an extra tire. US site said they were in stock actually came from the UK.

The one time I ordered from Source USA, the items came from England anyway.... didnt pay as much, but they still shipped from overseas and took a while.

Exact same set up I had... which WTP bike is it? The crysis? They should come off fine. Just get good tire levers and watch some how-to videos.

The copyright is also present on the half cab logo so it is a straight up parody... the guy in my screencap was handing out the awards, so he has to be a higher up with Vans. There was another guy wearing a white one too....

I got the S1 Lifer because it has a smaller form factor and is certified for multi low impacts as well as the single high impact.

No one has mentioned that you also need to do the chin strap correctly too. I see so many videos where they are riding all loose and the helmet comes off their head when they fall... if you are gonna wear it that way, why even bother with it at all.. ... more »

If you crank it fast or hard it will engage (and potentially damage) the hub. Pretty sure one of brant's videos shows him slow pedaling forward while rolling backwards.

Added reply in a thread Reviewing the Freenight planetary coaster hub! 9/9/2019 11:18 AM

So far the only times it has engaged on me or rather didn't disengage was when I was doing really slow roll backs on a quarter. If I gave a little hop before I rolled back it would freecoast no problem... I am still trying to figure out how to half-bunnyhop ... more »
