Reply to Anyone structure their practice? 1/23/2020 7:58 AM

The structured thing about my bike riding is the smiles it puts on my face.

Well really the datum reference frame Coupled with the position tolerance concerning concentricity and flatness makes for proper chain tension only if the other manufactured parts along the stacking line also adhere to a proper reference frame.

Dau; Homey the federal church hill frame is a super super good do it all geometry. It is essentially the same as the S&M WAMO frame and I’ve written it a bunch and compared it to more street oriented designs and more trail oriented designs and overall ... more »

Ride it. When the skaters bitch tell them ok, you feel free to call the police and when the police come and make me take them off I will. Until then you do your thing I’ll do mine.

Reply to Would anyone recommend Cult x Van's tires for street riding? 1/22/2020 10:17 AM

Hehe yeh bud, that was the first thing I did. I aired them. Both to 100 psi and let them sit all night. At 100 they were still narrower than my others at 45Psi which is my typical pressure.

Zee; hows your riding going? The first 2 months are the worst far as getting into shape and being sore all the time. It gets much better and more fun once your body remembers what muscles it needs to work on! Sick bike. Stick with it man

I’m a bit novice rider so to me the difference was more visible thing than a notable performance difference. I have more frame clearance at the chainstays and I was able to remove the tire without deflating it (To get past brake pads) which i couldnt ... more »

I’ve got a cheap shadow Guarded sprocket that creates a hella tight and loose spot in my chain. If I switch to another sprocket the chain is much evenly tensioned throughout the crank revolution. Makes me think the shadow sprocket bore is off center ... more »

Rode at Rays for the first time this past weekend. Figured I'd put it here for all to make fun of! It's me wearing the camera following my mtb buddies around a bit. This place was super bumpy! The amount of vibration put into my hands was pretty serious. ... more »

I looooove my Donnasqueaks too. The last set I bought however was significantly narrower than the previous two pairs I had, which is ok, but weird. Definently narrower than 2.25 at 60psi. I micrometer'ed them and they are like 2.13. My previous squeeks ... more »

Reply to Does taller rise handle bars such as 9.25" make pulling up easier? 1/17/2020 6:19 PM

Taller bars make looping out And busting your ass easier.

I remember watching Steve Crandall and crew running around heckling bystanders the 1997 Christmas Classic NBL dirtjump competition. they were funny as hell and always having a good time. Peace out FBM. I’m gonna go eat a light bulb.

Reply to having 2 bmx for different uses..make sense? 1/14/2020 7:01 PM

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 »

Reply to Fuse pads omg my shins bro 1/14/2020 6:56 PM

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 »

Reply to Do rusty pegs ruin your grinds? 1/14/2020 6:54 PM

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

S/m-fit doesn’t need to make customs because they offer more options than any other manufacturer....

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.
