Like I said, that definitely sounds like a bearing (ball bearing in the whole sealed bearing) poplin' because one of the bearings in the sealed bearing has a flat spot on it. You are correct with the bearing order above. We are guessing that you have

It definitely the bearings. Spokes wouldn't pop unless you were cruising around on them. Think about it. Spinning the wheels has nothing to do with spoke pop. Spoke pop is from the spokes being too loose and the rim and nipples rub bin' due to the rim ... more »

That's an un-sealed hub?

If you feel your brakes are dialed in, I guarantee clear pads will do the job. One problem I do see a lot of with these new forks (short steer tubes) is that guys will have the top if the gyro hitting the bottom of the stem or the gyro plate, or the ... more »

Not true! If your brake isn't dialed, that might be one problem. If you throw on some clear brake pads, they will lock up no matter what finish (black, chrome, aluminum, anodized, etc.) you have on that rim.

I hear ya, and there's nothing wrong with that. To each their own. That's what makes it Freestyle or what you guys call BMX. I like the clean look, just not for me. My bike looks like a got a dang spring up there.

LOL! I didn't say EVERY kid and I never even brought up your name. So "not true" yourself. Man, Friday needs to get here so these dudes can get out and ride! Tensions high this week! LOL

We seem to think it's a new trend because for the past few years hardly anyone was running top-load stems. That style is the single most requested out here as far as stems go. All you got to do is go to the parks. Just like the kid said up top, "doesnt ... more »

Wouldn't leaving the extra height help your back out more? You are right on the Odyssey warrantee to a degree. Kid out here cracked the fork tabs. He contacted Odyssey and got the forth degree. Did you register the forks. Are you the original owner. ... more »

Two benefit is that come to my mind are that you can never run a Gyro on those forks again, and you will void the companies' warrantee. Dudes were doing that for a cleaner look and believe it or not, to save weight. What makes me laugh is that they'll ... more »

All you have to do is use a punch smaller then the axle diameter and punch that axle through the other side of the hub. It will push out the bearing with it. It's pretty simple. Get a new axle, put it in, place the bearing back in the hub, place a deep ... more »
