Your feeling the rear end most. The 1/4" tt probably not near as much noticeable. Also, the headtube angles can make a big noticeable difference in "felt" bike size. I've been through the entire spectrum of bmx frame sizes and geometries. Suprisingly ... more »

Standard bikes used to make a u-brake conversion plate for forks. Check them out. You can run 990 style brakes up front.

Just appears to be a different rise. The sweeps are the same....

I've got some cheap disc brakes on a cross bike. They suprisingly work hella great! Keep with the discs man. You'll just need to bed them and keep oil off of them. Likely the disc is just a cable actuated caliper so there won't be any bleeding or resevoir ... more »

Thats awesome Max. Your boy will be beyond stoked, and surely have the nicest ride around! And when he gets the hang of the freecoaster he'll be many steps ahead of the rest of the kids his age when the jump to 20" bikes.

Yeh first thing that needs done to any new bars or new stem is to hit it with a wire wheel brush if you've got the means. Clean off ALL paint of the mating surfaces.Then torque in x pattern to 75 or 80 inlbs.

5 degree up, 11 degree back = no way can I ride these. Puts my wrists in a very uncomfortable angle. I was really hoping they might release an updated model with more traditional bends. Love the 4 piece styling though. Street AF looking. And I don't ... more »

Aren’t vx1000’s the shit quality that stranger makes all their videos look like they were made in 1994? Your cellphone is way better than any vx1000. But then again I grew up with vhs, so to me there is no appeal to using Shittier technology than available ... more »

Reply to Measured my BB shell guys ! 12/3/2019 1:36 PM

It’ll be fine. It’ll be fine. I repeat. It’ll be fine. Put it back together with new bearings, put the bearings in the freezer for 2 hours, heat the bb up with a heat gun or hair dryer If that’s all you got, grease lightly and slams that together and ... more »

Hello Max. Look into the Fit bike company kids bikes, and Cult brand kids bikes. Both are offering some really high quality stuff in the 14/16/18” wheel range.

Pashuley runs one I believe. He sprocket stalls/chunks/slides all kinds of stuff. So it’s gtg

Reply to Removed the weld 12/2/2019 12:06 PM

Not at all. You’ll be in good shape so long as your bearings will go in. And I’m sure they will.

Reply to Bmx lights 12/2/2019 12:02 PM

I bought some Schwinn brand ones from target. Years later they still work fine and were super cheap. Small enough to leave in my pocket then when I get stuck pedaling long stretches near traffic I can put them on.

Reply to Need helmet advice 11/30/2019 10:31 AM

I have a winter helmet. And a "not winter" helmet. Both are protecs. One is sized up alot so I can fit a sock hat comfortably under it. The other is not. I don't see why you couldn't get a protec, and maybe customize the sizing, but removing padding, ... more »

Get a Santa Cruz 5010, or a Stumpjumper Comp Alloy, and use either for dirtjumps, then get into single track riding and flow trails too. Then when you need to get your bmx fix, go with whats called a 26" dirtjumper with a short travel front fork. But ... more »
