Yes perfectly normal. It does look odd the first time you see it like that upon assembly.

Park ride 75 percent of the time = plastics Street ride 50 percent of the time = steel pegs I recommend straight aluminum pegs 0 Percent of the time unless your a flat lander.

I’ve owned a few race bmx bikes in my younger years with V brakes. I felt the V brakes always out performed U brakes.

I typically have to use a small punch or screw driver to loosen the plates/ pins as well.

New bearings. Or too short of a bottom bracket spindle/bearing spacer. You do have a bottom bracket bearing spacer in between the bearings right ?

Yeh. My Gt Fueler weighed 37lbs. The chain stays measured 14.75” long slammed!

Thicker. More cushion. Look no further than the Harkous signature grip by Primo. I’m in love with these although I love the Hoder grips too.

My 79.99us Verde Cartel’s kick ass. Super solid forks. Dropouts on the verde’s are better than my odyssey’s r32’s. More tire clearance on the r32’s though. No way is a 2.4 gonna work on the verde’s.

Can you elaborate more on how many you know of that has been “completely faulty”, as you put it? And in what way were they faulty?

Courage Adams actually just did a how to manual video and he stated pretty much the opposite which surprised me.

Realistically, absolutely nothing on that bike even needs upgraded. It’s setup great. Just replace when things break. Don’t get sucked into the false thinking that “upgrading” bike parts actually makes your bike ride better. Also edit to add; here in ... more »
