I have an sm Bonesaw (super short rear end street frame) built up, and an SM Atf which is kind of the opposite of the bonesaw in terms of geometry. I can jump back and forth on them with little issue. Take maybe 5 minutes to get used to swapping then ... more »

Damn man, if you put them on straight out of the package maybe you should wash them first! See if that helps. If not, try wearing a tall sock that comes to the knee maybe? When I raced motocross there were some knee socks made for wearing under knee ... more »

Wait. What? Aluminum angle? There's yer problem. Replace aluminum with steel, or replace the steel pegs with plastic. Or go ride street instead.

I spent a couple grand at Albe's in the last year over the span of at least 12 orders. They have 100% perfect order execution for me and ship faster than any other mailorder I've ever used. Thanks Albe's.

A bmx bike is a tool to happiness. Like any tool. use it and utilize it. Treat it like a tool. Tools get scratched, dirty, worn in, scuffed etc. I've never seen a good tool on a jobsite that was shiny and pretty. As a matter of fact, most of the treasured ... more »
