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 »

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.

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.

Check out the Sunday Jake Seeley pegs. Light but probably not the lightest.....

Reply to Dyno VFR before and after 12/18/2019 4:24 PM

VFR's are timeless. I was always stoked to see them out in the wild so to speak when I was a youngen. I had a choice between the Dyno VFR and a GT Mach One. I went with the Mach One. Nice piece of BMX history you got there Marc. Ride it and show it no ... more »

Reply to Revenge wheelset hub guards? 12/11/2019 3:21 PM

I’ve got revenge cassette wheelset and am running an s.m cymbal. The daily grind steel hub guard works on it too. Not sure how the free coaster differs. But leaving this info here for future searches.

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 »

TT length is the least noticeable metic of an entire bike geo.

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.

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.
