I'm left handed and right foot forward and my natural rotation is spinning left. So maybe yours is right? You should be able to tell which way you're more comfortable spinning though.

Why not find someone who's willing to buy it and let them request the colour?

Shadow Conspiracy Overtaker are great all round tyres, and they look great.

Looks decent, but you can generally switch the drive side on most bikes these days. it's up to you what bike you go with either way.

It doesn't look like it has holes for gyro tabs, but it's still possible to get holes drilled on the head tube for gyro installation.

That's just a kind of mindset people have when there's nothing in front of them. When there's something in front of you that you intend to hop over or onto, you subconsciously try harder to get up there so that you don't have to deal with the consequences ... more »

So I just installed a new wheel to my bike. Haven't hit the parks yet, but I've ridden on wheels before and I prefer it, my bike looks very clean too.

I never really knew about CR honestly, I wish they'd pretty up their site a bit though

. Usually if I need emergency parts on the spot, I'd head to Evans Cycles in-store. They have a pretty good BMX service along with the rest of their biking ... more »

Vans. Love the grip.

Is there any reason in specific why I shouldn't order from Source, other than potentially missing the delivery? Honestly, there's always someone in my house so I never miss deliveries.

Just go with whatever colour scheme you want. Don't worry about what other people think. That website is pretty awesome though.

I ride a Shadow Interlock V2. Been perfect so far, I've had it around 7 months and expect it to last much longer. The come in a wide variety of colours, and like all Shadow gear, they look so nice.

Future: That Shadow BTR seriously looks phenomenal visually, and I'm sure it's internals and performance match. I love Shadow's style. I'm looking to get Shadow's Vultus bars next. Thanks for the suggestions guys, I've decided to go with the G-Sport

Seems like a pretty decent hub. Too bad I'd have to paint it white, since I can't go without my colour scheme (little bit OCD, eh?) I was also looking at the G-Sport Ratchet hub, it looks great and has lifetime warranty, I may go ahead and get one of ... more »

Reply to Rear Cassette Hub Recommendations 3/5/2013 5:28 PM

I've recently come to see quite a fair few bad reviews on the hub, which is why I was having second thoughts. Before, I saw good reviews on it, which is why I prioritised it. But you can never really know without experiencing first hand with a hub. You ... more »

Okay, I finally found a great UK supplying BMX website that offer a free wheel building service when you buy all the parts from them, so this thread is now even more pointless than it initially was. Thanks for the help either way you two.

Odyssey replied to me by supplying me with the exact same picture of the spoke length calculator that I used. Not exactly too helpful, I wasn't able to find 185mm spokes so I guess 186mm is the better option.

Reply to Rear Wheel Lacing 3/5/2013 4:45 PM

DansComp really isn't the best option for me, since I live in the UK and shipping costs will be quite a lot for such a small package.

Reply to Rear Wheel Lacing 3/5/2013 2:17 PM

Thanks for the help, I've decided to email Odyssey and ask for some advice.

Reply to I CAN'T DO 180s!!!!! 3/4/2013 5:47 PM

When doing your 180's you're trying to turn your head in the opposite direction of your spin. You need to keep your head turned in the same direction that you're spinning for the whole 180 until you land flat backwards. Try looking over your shoulder, ... more »
