+1 for seth. With some minor tweaks you can build both his micro and mini ramps out of a single 4x8 sheet and some 2x4's. We put the micro against a curb (making it, ~ 8") for the kids. We're using the mini on our backyard patio to practice over the ... more »

The times I have gotten hurt have come from failing to commit fully and trying to step out/off too early. This. It's the awkward bails that hurt you. And it is about confidence. Whenever I have super psyched up to do something really hard it was...actually ... more »

so....gt only makes one type of 3 piece crank, and it's an 8 spline pinch bolt type. So there should be a sprocket bolt on your bike....gonna need some pictures here.. I looked it up because spline drive is pricey and the Slammer is not a high end model. ... more »

if it wobbles when pedalled, it usually means your sprocket is bent. you may be able to live with that. If it is loose enough to wiggle with your hands, and there is no sprocket bolt, you have a much bigger problem . The sprocket is chewing it's splines ... more »

it moves side to side when you rotate the cranks, or it moves side to side when you try to wiggle it with your fingers? Your cranks are spline drive, they don't need the little bolt.

As I've said before, I've seen beginners break hi-ten frames before, but I've never seen a beginner break a chromoly frame before, This experience is different than mine. I've seen broken frames of all kinds, hi ten and cromo. But not a beginner as in ... more »

Gold Lee Chi Brakes, imitation MX levers, V cross bars for power and red motocross style grips. It's a beaut.

Did you post this in a different thread by mistake because over here we were discussing a beginner with less than $200 to spend. If you have hi-ten frames lying around, weight them and post the results!! P.S. There is $50 gear for adult hockey BTW. Used ... more »

The $200 bikes on kijiji aren't usually out of the box.. They have a mix of components. If I took a WTP NOVA (HiTen frame) and swapped all the components with WTP Zodiac...you'd want the cromo-mo framed bike? I'd take the kick ass bike with the hi-ten ... more »

the hi-ten. Because the cro-moly is obviously stolen. heh. Also, this is a classic strawman proposal. google it. I NEVER said I didn't prefer cromo. I do. Its lighter, usually with better parts. My ONLY argument is that a beginner with $150 does not ... more »

".P.P.S. You STILL didn't answer the question: would you buy a hi-tens frame over a full chromo for the same money, same brand? Would you buy used hoo-flung-poo tools over Snap-on for the same money?" Nope. It depends on the other parts too. Only a fool ... more »
