Added reply in a thread Will the cassette be irrelevant by 2025🤭 9/17/2019 4:48 AM

Actually, I believe Shimano had a BMX Cassette hub in the early(er?) 80's. It was in the DX line at about the same time that the DX pedals first hit the market.

Freecoasters aren't new. The first viable freecoaster was available int he late 1980's. If it's a "trend" it has been a long running trend. Hell, the cassette, as we know it in BMX, wasn't even in existence when the freecoaster came about At that time, ... more »

You are correct. But, to me (and many other Americans... not so much for you "foreigners" LOL) I'd rather support a company that is using American skilled labor.

Perhaps you should review the forum rules. Don't grave dig old threads unless there's relevant info that can be added. & to your assertion about cheaper & faster, if you check Ebay for where the parts are coming from, you can usually get them ... more »

Really, you should be able to lean back and with just a slight bull back, pull the wheel off the ground and (try to) maintain from there. There's no upward pulling of the bars. Think of it as you are holding onto the bars so you don't fall off the back ... more »

It doesn't sound like you are over-tightening it, but thread engagement was/is an issue. You should put a bit of grease on the threads of the compression threads as well, this will help keep the aluminum from galling in the steel steerer tube and help ... more »

Added reply in a thread U Brakes VS V Brakes 8/5/2019 4:51 AM

V brakes are superior for braking power. However, the reason U-Brakes are the go-to in BMX is that the cable routing for them is more streamline & doesn't catch on your left heal whereas V-brakes tend to have issues in the BMX world, particularly ... more »

From the looks of it, it looks (and sounds) like you don't have enough clamp load/too many spacers (not enough fork in the stem) for your stem to hold. You should have approx 1/8 between the top of the fork and the top of the stem max. with a proper ... more »

Good call. You gotta be sure. A lot of that goes on. Back in the day, you simply knew a bike was a certain bike based on the frame design. These days, so many frames look identical.

I've only seen this colorway on the individual frame, not the complete. The completes that I remember seeing were all orange.
