In regards to switching tips...in my case, the only ones that were interchangeable were those from the same line. For example: the tip from Krylon COLORmaxx Spray Paint will work with other COLORmaxx spray paints, but not with COLORmaster.

I've recently spray painted all 4 of my BMX bikes and at one point or another used the following paints, primers and clear coats. Those in BOLD are my top picks. Prep Aviation Paint Stripper Sandpaper Wire Brush  WorkBench Wire Wheel Alcohol Wipes Tack ... more »

Negative...LoL. Picture is from the FS post I originally obtained the bike from. Did Not have an updated one when I made my post.

LoL...I plead the 5th! So last night I went home and checked the tires. Perhaps my mind is playing tricks on me. But sometimes they did look correct and at times they didn't. Unlike other tires, the ones on the Cult didn't have any arrow. So my assumption ... more »

I haven't had any issues, but just that fact that I know it's backwards and it's something I can actually fix...would irritate the hell out of me. Plus it could have been worse, remember that seat post with the bend you asked about? I actually had that ... more »

Good Catch...the back tire/wheel came off my 2016 Fit Pledge, which I've never had to replaced. Yet I do remember questioning the tire pattern, but since there's only one way the rear wheel can go...but dumbass didn't stop to think..."maybe I should ... more »

For what it's worth, I was able to obtain a used 2016 GT Wise for $80. I gave my daughter the option to choose one bike out of 3 to keep for herself. After riding all 3 bikes, surprisingly enough she chose the GT over what I assumed she would have chosen

It close, but no rubbing. I'm a big guy (192 lbs) & normally if the tire is too close, ,my added weight will cause the tire to rub. Yet got on it yesterday for a quick trial and had no issues. But I'll give it a look. Worse case scenario, I could ... more »

Are you referring to the seat post off of the one pictured? If so, it came that way. The only thing I've done to it is cut/paint and switched it over to my '16 Pledge. (A before picture)

Added reply in a thread Deal or did I just throw away $50? 11/11/2019 10:16 AM

Completely agree...especially towards the end. Yet I actually still own that bike. We use it as my daughter's back up. Since she recently upgraded to a 2016 GT Wise.  It's the pink/purple bike on the right...lol.

In my case, I wasn't able to locate a replacement Fork Top Bolt. And I tried locating one everywhere. Eventually it was just easier to purchase a different set of forks. Besides that, my only complaint would be the amount of time I spent picking up all ... more »

I ran into the same issue w/the 1st bike I purchased (used) a few months back. Bike had a DK frame (Walmart - The Machine). My knowledge is beginner level, back then it was non-existent. LOL

I checked bikeindex.com and got no hits when I entered the S/N. Plus the kid (well he's probably in his twenties) who sold it too me didn't seem sketchy. Picked up at his house, etc.
