I checked into the Shovelhead completely (parts, frame, forks, etc...) & couldn't find a bad thing said about them. I just found out that mine showed up at my door about 3 hours ago. I'll be home within the hour to put it together & I'll take ... more »

Holy Sh*t!!!! Just randomly checked my tracking info (it was picked up yesterday!!!):

I agree with Johnnypoopoopants. That is a KILLER deal for the Verde Oxbridge. I had already purchased by the time I read his post or it would be gone right now! If I were you, I'd jump on that deal NOW! Otherwise (I hate sounding like a broken record... ... more »

Well, that's where I am at too.... Grab as far out as possible & in an emergency situation (grab where you can & worry about position later), yeah, grab where you can. But I was watching these guys riding all over the park, literally jumping ... more »

I was replying but I can't say anything good & I was taught, "if you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.

Started new thread Handlebar hand position 8/3/2017 5:57 AM

So, I was wasting time watching of videos of some park competitions & I noticed a lot of the guys grabbing their bars ar the bend (by the grips) instead of the grip itself. Anyone have an explanation for why they might do this?

Not a dig, at all, on you but I find it funny (especially with the Mt. bike crowd & Road bike crowd) who will spend thousands of dollars to drop 1 pound off their bike.... when they are 5'10" & weight 210 pounds! I was always like "dude, put ... more »

FYI, this is a very old thread. 2013 was the last post... besides yours (& now mine, lol). On another, but related, note.... I just bought the Eastern Shovelhead. IMHO, it's the best deal going right now. Got mine for $399 (US) shipped (stateside). ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2 piece steerer forks - are they really that bad? 8/3/2017 4:45 AM

As a (Late) addition, two piece fork construction is often used in the motorcycle industry. & while they aren't necessarily doing anything radical (jumps, etc...) they are supporting WAY more weight. I think you'll be fine with the 2-piece.

You could do both (cranks & chain). That would help a lot. You could also change your gearing if you wanted & achieve a similar change as the chain length change. I don't think you will really even notice the difference in crank length on bunny ... more »

Hey, I'm not a pro in this area as I have been out of the "industry" for a long while. That being said, what these guys are saying is, definitely, true. Get as much crmo as possible in the frame, fork, handlebars, cranks/spindles, etc..; then go on to ... more »
