Yup ! Don't worry you are not going nuts man. I got the same pucture with more details, the sidewalls is way too much solicited with the narrow tyre.

Added reply in a thread So...about the big ol' fatty tires. 10/13/2017 6:35 AM

I ride a big ass tyre in the front to benefit traction and stability (= sluggishness for some) and a narrower on the back for less rolling resistance. To Mishinn_Control "Wider tyres create LESS rolling resistance" From a Bmx perspective it is DUMB.

Added reply in a thread Peg length 9/30/2017 7:02 AM

Longer pegs are cool I use them on the back because they help for hard 180's, and super fast feebles.

Added reply in a thread Seat low or high 9/26/2017 5:55 AM

Around 4" of post showing up, it's just the spot I like my seat, I like being able to sit comfortably and also being able to pedal to keep my speed, also nice spot for hang 5's and it saved my ass many times from looping out on manuals, just have to ... more »

Added reply in a thread which tires are better Donnastreets or Squeaks 9/17/2017 12:19 AM

I run both at the moment, a 2.3" donnastreet on the back and a 2.4" squeak up front. Perfect combo. The donnastreet is an excellent back tyre, I like the hard slick band on the side, grinds feels smooth and hard 180's are a little easier, I also do way ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is higher psi always better? 9/16/2017 9:23 AM

I run a 2.3" tyre in the back and a big 2.4" up front to benefit both the traction and cushion of the bigger tyre with a low rolling resistance (I don't like the monster truck feeling in the back). I pump them around 5 bars (70psi) I like the fast feeling, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Frame geometry changes 9/16/2017 1:30 AM

It's a pretty drastic change, short chainstays and high bb combined are a bit too much twitchy in my opinion. I ran many frames these last years all with different geo's but all of them had a 11.5" bb, except the last one who was 11.75". It's a little ... more »

And end up left pedal on right side and vice versa, not good. Can be fixed if you switch left/right pedal bodies.

Added reply in a thread Do stickers equal stolen? 8/17/2017 6:41 PM

My bike is nearly full black with no stickers but it looks way cleaner than bikes with a lot of stickers, if I was a bike thief, I would steal my bike. My bike being more expensive than my car, I'm pretty paranoid about leaving it out-here even locked, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Good rear wheel set up? 8/16/2017 6:20 PM

Pretty much every brand does great stuffs now, but considering you would most likely go for a complete wheel, bsd and shadow make great cassettes, the bsd is a 3 pawl and I think the shadow have 4.

Added reply in a thread Good rear wheel set up? 8/16/2017 5:55 PM

Ton's of options but don't you have two wheelsets already ? Whatever, first you need a strong rim, after cracking many back rims, I bought a shadow truss rim and this shit is good ! The inline spokes makes your wheel stay tight and true even when going ... more »

Now measuring tapes are so old school, if you want to know a dimension of something just ask to the internet, or... oh wait, there's probably an app for it !

Added reply in a thread Free coaster and brakeless? 8/16/2017 5:30 PM

The only thing a z-coaster has more than a regular coaster is pedal pressure so it's really a detail. Two wheelset is perfect, I also have both but the cassette wheel is mainly here "just in case" if anything goes wrong with my coaster.

Added reply in a thread Free coaster and brakeless? 8/16/2017 2:53 PM

Coaster and pedal pressure aren't meant to work together, tire taps are possible by preloading the hub (one feet up the other down) then crank down and press, doing one occasionally doesn't hurt, but clucth "pawls" aren't cassette pawls and doing them ... more »

Added reply in a thread Grant C Tech / Sean Burns / Animal Bikes 8/10/2017 11:31 PM

I ride 4 BSD plastic pegs with a crmo core, I ride the XL version of them on the back, it helps for hard 180's and fast feebles. About fast feebles, I love riding a set of steel pegs to do them on long rough curbs. I also run 4 steel guards, I don't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tapered headtube for bmx... 8/9/2017 1:02 PM

Yes it add a little weight and cost but why not ? For some heavy or burly riders, it can be cool to have a stronger frame, most frames breaks at the head tube / down tube junction. But let's be honest most people will just buy it because it looks cool. ... more »
