Hey... Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I haven't check my messages yet but will.

Added reply in a thread Help a brother shop for used.... If you would want to.... 1/17/2020 12:23 PM

Just throwing this out there.... I'm to your north in Milwaukee. I have been thinking on selling my Eastern Shovelhead. It's a modern ride, full-chromoly, sealed everything, double wall rims, 48-spline cranks,. Everything you could want. Hit me up if ... more »

Added reply in a thread Who else is being hit by the snow storm? 1/13/2020 8:21 AM

We were supposed to get between 8 & 12" of snow.... we got, MAYBE, 2.5..... but before that, we had a nice mix of sleet, rain & THEN snow, which made for a nice mess of ice and slush so.... yeah, I'm not riding anything but a couch for the time ... more »

Yeah... 200 is way too low for a brand new bike. I get that it's technically used and the used bmx market is shit but I can't do $200. Good luck in your search.

I'd love to but I don't really have anything setup & the weather is shit here right now & not supposed to get any better in the short term. If I can get out with some decent weather, I may submit something.

Good. Just been laying low.... sold my house, bought a new house, moving & a number of other things have kept my attention. How's things with you?

Added reply in a thread 2019 Fit Long too good to be true ??? 1/8/2020 11:47 AM

Hey.... You might be in luck.... I have a bike I have been thinking on selling. It's pretty much 100% brand new. Let me know if you are interested (I'm up in Milwaukee).

Added reply in a thread The best frame for me? 1/8/2020 5:47 AM

I'm assuming you are an experienced rider if you are asking for specifics like this. In general, while these are fairly generic, the 69 degree ST angle is an odd one. Mind if I ask where you are getting your desired specs? If you are that particular ... more »

That's a typical price point for bargain completes. Some run right about $400-450 all year long (I suspect the Fit Long would normally be around $460ish) & then they have a sale & drop $50-$60. Definitely not top of the line but certainly capable ... more »

Added reply in a thread Would anyone run this on their bike? 1/3/2020 12:29 PM

Looks pretty gnarly. I'd have to see it in person... & I'd probably need to be in a pinch and that was my only choice before I'd use it.

Mind elaborating? Just curious.

I used to be able to hop that high. I have aspirations to do it again but,.... I dunno. LOL.

Added reply in a thread How often to replace helmet? 11/27/2019 10:24 AM

I'm not sure it's the same, but for what it's worth, motorcycle helmet manufacturers recommend replacing a helmet every 3 years or so and after any impact (which could include a dropped helmet.... not that I'd replace a bicycle helmet after dropping ... more »

Added reply in a thread Mafiabikes bolts 11/19/2019 6:42 AM

ALSO, make sure that as you tighten the bolts that you are tightening them evenly so that the space between the stem base and the top clamp/cap have an even gap front to back and side to side.

He's saying the post you "grave dug" (because it's dead and buried) is from 2013 and the person who posted it isn't active. So, that is a no (most likely).

Added reply in a thread Hard to tighten top cap 11/18/2019 4:42 AM

Keep in mind, the top cap isn't meant to be "load-bearing". Meaning, you aren't supposed to crank it tight. It's meant for bearing adjustments and your stem is what holds that adjustment. So you snug up the top cap, then tighten the stem to hold it in ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anybody riding a Redline on here? 11/14/2019 10:37 AM

If you are looking for a bike, hit me up. I'm local to you (in case you haven't seen my other replies to your posts) and might have something for you, depending on your budget.

Added reply in a thread Anybody riding a Redline on here? 11/14/2019 10:35 AM

Sealed bearings are where it's at these days. Anything less is just for riding around town. So, yeah, all wheels have bearings (obviously) but your better wheelsets should have sealed bearing hubs

Added reply in a thread So, does anyone still ride anything other than 25/9 gearing and 20"ish top tube? 11/14/2019 10:33 AM

That was my problem. I was just able to squeeze in a 28 on the tallboy. Anything larger would require spacing & then my chain line would suffer.
