Added reply in a thread How tight should I tighten my front wheel nuts? 6/30/2020 3:33 PM

Any pics? Also just for future knowledge a crescent wrench can round off nuts if its not a very precise tool. Gotta make sure its super snug before you apply a lot of torque. A big ol', crescent wrench will provide a lot of torque, so you gotta be careful. ... more »

It is most likely the bottom bracket shell that is slightly shorter. Some bearings are a bit thicker than others but bb shells are all different sized

Id rather watch someone worse at bmx with a better personality than someone better with a lack of personality. Some of the best riders, of course, are awesome people outside of bmx but if they aren't on youtube showing off their personality, how would ... more »

What kind of tool are you using? Some tools allow for much more leverage than others.

You could get a welder to cut some new dropouts for you and weld them on. I wouldnt ride that frame personally.

If you have a local shop around you, they would most likely give it to you for free. Make sure and purchase some grips or something though to make it worth their while.

If you bring a tool and rotate the sleeves every once in a while, they last a lot longer. And like Dave wrote, what you have in your area will determine your sleeve lifespan. I dont do a ton of rails mostly because they are either too tall for my ability ... more »

Definitely a possibility, Dave. Just sharing my personal experience. While I dont think its a great idea for long term, I dont think it will blow up running it for a little while. To the op, I gathered this was an experiment, is this something you are ... more »

Ya youre missing ball bearings. You can measure them and replace them but its a hassle unless you have a bike dhop near. Honestly this might be a good time to upgrade your wheelset to cartridge bearing-type hubs or an entire new setup. If youre not gonna ... more »

Well, with how much play there is on the front...it looks like there is something missing/loose/broken or all three. Without being able to inspect it closely with my own eyes, I might right that off as a lost cause if tightening it up doesnt remove the ... more »

Can you show a video about the items that are loose? Is the headset/headtube area showing signs of looseness or does it feel smooth and solid up there?

Honestly, you'd be best off buying used if 200 is your budget for Tires/wheels/tubes. But if you get the appropriate sized spoke wrench, youd probably be fine on what you have already if you're just going to roll around and cruise with the kids. Are ... more »

Ive run super cheap hubs on 2 pawls without issues. Not saying you will experience the same but go ahead and try it out. Id say the worst thing that could happen is you chip a pawl and maybe skip a bit. Definitely will increase stress on the individual ... more »

Got any pics? Pretty much any double wall rim will hold you. Are your current wheels all bent up or just need a tune up?
