Added reply in a thread What shoes do you use for BMX? 11/6/2017 12:50 PM

Man, Im wearing a pair of UGPs from 2004. All these new shoes look like Keds to me. They all have the same soles and no toe box. I got big hillbilly toes man. Even saw at the sporting goods store, the same Keds ass looking shoes with Dickies and Carhart ... more »

I think he meant an automobile not a city, lol. Been riding since the late 80s I guess, technically. Im only 32 but my first 2 bikes were Huffies that got mangled so i must have been doing something right at a young age. I still have my first "real" ... more »

Added reply in a thread Metal pedals feel good 11/6/2017 12:31 PM

I'm running Shadow Ravager pedals, they have the knurling. Back in the day I used to take certain pins out of my wellgos, and it would make your foot blow off to the side instead of getting shin slapped. Doesnt work with square pedals so well.. I also ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wheel keeps slipping back out of dropout 11/4/2017 10:28 PM

It's a 4 handed job without a tensioner (you only need one really)... I used to cram a piece of wood in the tire and try to hold it back while tightening both sides. Some hubs really suck,and some dropouts are springier than others I run a 3/8 female ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bar Height(in relation to bb height) 11/4/2017 10:16 PM

Youre not figuring bb height in relation to centerline of the wheels! A lower bb is more stable, lower bars arent more stable. Tail taps might suffer, but it might change how your feet sit on the pedals.. Its a complex machine. Thats why you follow the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Let's talk fork offset. 11/4/2017 9:53 PM

More fork offset =backwards shopping cart wheel, positive caster, that sucker wants to turn around. Bad combo with long stem or bars pushed forward. Bars kept going sideways on nollies, lip stuff etc. Eventually they flung out of my hands so hard i went ... more »

Added reply in a thread Super-short bars 11/4/2017 9:37 PM

I ran 9s with a flipped race xlt, lost my threes, nose bonks felt crap. Pushing it on looks too. Bars were in my face. Went to 8.75 and it felt okay. Eventually went back to 8.5 (8+7=15mm stack height) and it feels great. 5 years ago i could not stand ... more »

Added reply in a thread When does this hit shops and what's anticipated pricing? 7/28/2017 5:57 PM

sweet. hope their marketing is good (aimed at nostalgia market), not many street riders need a standing platform or curved downtube.

skateparks are great excersize as long as youre willing to snake everyones runs. taking turns is for miniramps!

8 splines w no pinch bolts... not a great design. Clean the grease out and use some blue thread locker!

Man that's tight. Ive seen plenty of pros film in the surrounding areas. Right under sossaman theres a normal sized bank to ledge-wall nobody hits. Managed to squeeze off a few stalls. Looking for a similar setup to quick-crete into something nice. Thinking ... more »

Early 30s, been riding off and on since the mid 90s. I remember trashing the bars on my Huffy and begging my dad for some sweet bmx bars, but he came home with some freakin ape hangers he found. I was mad until my birthday came and there was a shiny ... more »

Added reply in a thread IS IT OKAY? 2 11/14/2016 7:05 PM

I ran single wall on my trail bike front wheel. It may need trued more often but would probably never bend too bad to ride. Unless you bail lots of 720s over spine, should be fine.

Added reply in a thread What does your bike weigh? 11/14/2016 6:57 PM

Probably 26 or so, half pegs n brakes. Thats light Imo. Coming from midschool and dirtbikes, I like the 'skateboard' feel of a lighter bike since Im not in the best shape and dont thrash like I used to. Titanium hardware, race tubes, thats me. Why? Because ... more »
