I haven't snapped any frames personally, but I've seen plenty from both sides of the world suffer the same fate. I can say that my '05 Fit frame that was made in Taiwan does feel stiffer than my '13 Fit frame that was made in the USA at S&M out of ... more »

Added reply in a thread Primo Mix vs Odyssey V3. Which and why? 1/14/2016 2:47 PM

This is exactly what I was thinking, but I don't think I ride hard enough to destroy either tbh. Lol. I'm asking more because I would like to keep one wheel and sell the other. The Mix is laced to a Hazard Lite hoop (V3 is to a Quadrant), which I'm keeping ... more »

Started new thread Primo Mix vs Odyssey V3. Which and why? 1/14/2016 1:33 PM

I have both, but can't decide which one I'd rather use. I've been using the V3 for the last month or so, but switched to the Mix after I got it over the weekend just to try it out since I had a Primo hub before the V3 and it was great. I've built my ... more »

Added reply in a thread 7 year anniversary. 1/13/2016 10:06 PM

Pushing 7 years as well, and I too drift in and out for a year or so at a time, especially when I have a job or move or something. Never stop riding tho unless my bike's fucked up and it takes me a while to get parts. Vital's pretty much the same, but ... more »

Added reply in a thread ANY TRAILS IN NORCO RIVERSIDE CORONA AREA 1/13/2016 9:55 PM

Ah nice. Pretty far for me to travel to build. Been helping the homie lately with his trails coming up in the hills in Corona, and have been cleaning up/riding the cemetery jumps in Norco for the last week. On the subject of Norco, has anyone on here ... more »

Added reply in a thread Brake or Brakeless 1/11/2016 3:14 AM

Brakes are a pain in the ass imo, and you don't need them to do fufanus or ride trails, or anything else for that matter(except tracks because they're mandatory. Lol). Like GrumpySteve said, once you've ridden without them long enough, you become alot ... more »

Added reply in a thread Primo Pro/Mix drivers compatible? 1/11/2016 2:49 AM

Got a Primo Mix hub yesterday, and would like to confirm once and for all that they DO NOT interchange! The outer diameter of the Mix driver is smaller, so there's zero chance of the Pro driver fitting inside the Mix hub shell. I would've taken pics ... more »

Added reply in a thread the future 1/8/2016 9:49 PM

Yeah if you know someone that has a half million dollar +/- cnc machine at their shop. That plus the training to use it is exactly why billet stuff like car/truck wheels for example cost so much. The overhead on it is absolutely ridiculous. But yeah, ... more »

Added reply in a thread the future 1/8/2016 9:36 PM

Lol yeah, forgot the affordable part at the end of my previous comment. I do think there would be some pretty bad ass ones if a company actually decided to do it. I don't like scooters, but I do like some of the designs of wheels I see kids riding. Plus ... more »

Added reply in a thread What video game do you think encourages violence the most? 1/8/2016 9:19 PM

True, but you still gotta have a good enough job to afford it and resources for parts, the technical knowledge to build a cage and suspension correctly, as well as a place to build it. Exactly the situation I'm in now financially. I've been to college/trade ... more »

Added reply in a thread What video game do you think encourages violence the most? 1/7/2016 11:46 PM

Hey, those crappy autocross cars are actually pretty bad ass sometimes imo. Sure, it would be great to have a fully built tube frame track car. But like you said, most of us will never have the money or resources for that. At least that's one way to ... more »

You must play Forza as well? Lol. I find it funny that they say the AI in career mode is actually other people's ghosts. If that's true, other people seem to not be able to drive for shit.

Added reply in a thread Helmets - why the fuss? 1/7/2016 11:08 PM

Agreed. I don't wear one either(can't afford one atm..) and ride alot of park, but I do know that's exactly why I never go big and coincidentally never get any better. It's a better idea to wear one, possibly the best one anyone will ever make. Like ... more »

So I guess it's safe to say Bob doesn't like barspins? Lol. Not a fan of carbon fiber personally, but I am waiting for someone in the industry to finally make light and strong billet aluminum wheels a reality

Added reply in a thread Who else brought the shadow Vultus bars. 1/7/2016 10:45 PM

I too have Vultus 9's. I love them but I agree they flex alot. They are really lightweight for 9" bars, so they're not exactly heavy duty. Shit you can feel how much they flex by just pushing straight down on them. Lol
