I wouldn't put much trust in those spoke calculators unfortunately... I ordered a set of individual spokes with sizes ranging from 180 to 190 once, so that I could check for myself what spoke sizes were appropriate for the rim/hub combos I've had. All ... more »

The guys that do 360 triple whips are pretty much all ripped. It just depends on what kind of riding style you aim for

Meh, flair is just the short version of flip air and it looks quite distinctive, not just like a straight flip 180. Predator doesn't roll on the tongue that well

Seems strange to give such a name to what really is a combo of tricks, but okay... thanks

Added reply in a thread the worst bmxers 7/23/2020 11:53 PM

The worst ones are those that always tell you they're scared to hurt themselves trying new tricks, yet don't want to hear about wearing pads and a helmet. Fucking idiots telling me they don't want to try barspins because they're scarred to get a shinner. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Does Part Weight Matter? 7/16/2020 12:52 AM

Going from normal tubes to Tubolito tubes (which are more than half the weight) has made a big difference on the feeling of doing whips, barspins, and even just airing (it feels that you get more pop). Wheels weight is definitely noticeable.

I'm 168 cm tall (which is apparently 5'6"), and I run a 20.6" Total Hangover frame. I might go for 20.5" or even 20.4" for my next frame.

Added reply in a thread What took you longer to learn a flat 360 or hop barspin? 7/9/2020 1:10 AM

Hard to answer, because hop 360 is one of the first tricks I learned (and it took me a while), and I learned hop barspins after flyout barspins and chicken barspins (so I had the motion down, and I was quite a bit better). I would say hop 360 are easier, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help with a hop whip 7/9/2020 1:05 AM

1) They are way, WAY harder on flat ground. And learning them directly on flat will lead to learning bad habits I think. 2) You need to hop super hard. On your video it looks like you're barely trying. Your feet are straight to the ground after you kick

I haven't seen many riots over your drinking age of 21, or many other idiotic topics like Kinder eggs being banned, so I'm sure you're also "willingly accepting oppression", as you say.

Added reply in a thread covid19 --- are skateparks safe 5/19/2020 12:18 AM

Last I checked, most countries have done great efforts to inform on the dangers of drunk driving and to sanction people doing it, and it has actually led to significant decreases in driving accidents. So yes, prevention and sanctions do work, be it for ... more »

Do you find that they slip more easily than the regular ones that attach with velcro? Or they stay in place better?
