1) I didn't reopen the thread. 2) Attempting to train every single user will never.ever.work. Ever. Ever. 3) if you don't want threads open, LOCK THEM. That's the simple solution the rest of the world uses, and the only way to stop re-opening. Until ... more »

You must be new here. Throwing old threads on the main page is practically a feature here. Like the song says: if it wasn't for old threads, we wouldn't have no threads at all!

Holy cow...and you don't remember it? Does a non-injury but terrifying crash count? I've broken Ulna's (great injury for an adult BTW), patellas, ankles. But all those happened quick, bam, down. The one I remember the most vividly... So I had been getting ... more »

Try Mountain biking - start with a nice singletrack for flow. Then move to whoops and now jumping is a blast. I rode/raced MTB for 19 years before getting back into BMX....nothing wrong with a little break.

So sad about this. So sad. He is in great physical condition, so hopefully he gets back up from this sad

Frame/forks/bars/cranks/rearwheel/frontwheel/reartire/fronttire/ in lbs.oz : 4.12/2/.8/2.6/2.4/1.8/1.12/2/2 = 19.125 lbs and you need to add pedals, chain, seat, seatpost, stem, grips, pegs....until I see it on a scale, I'd go with 23lbs+/- . That's light, and it's quality stuff, but unless there is some titanium in here, I don't see how it can be 19lbs. I took the weights of the components listed from either the manufacturer site or dans comp.... how did you come up with that weight?

We've moved past brake-less. We're now into chainless.

Who's telling who what to do here? Your whiny excuses and entitled attitude sucks man,and it sucks hard, and its why skaters and riders got banned from so many places. P.S And stop destroying other peoples property!

I'm not going to the Peg Police, nor the Bar police. I leave that role to you. I don't know how you can claim that "no one under 5'" needs 10" bar? Do you have data to back up that assertion? Maybe they have a small frame and need the height, maybe they ... more »

21" frames were considered an XXL and only used for racing. They were not for freestyle bmx. 10" bars are currently being ridiculed as 'too big' or 'too tall' or 'no one needs that height' right here on Vital bmx forums! I am not making pegs. I support ... more »

We've made the front page. For those just catching up: Lumberjack and I are fighting a losing battle to let the innovaters dream and try new stuff. Until you've tried something yourself you can't tell how useful it might be. There have been no new peg

Added reply in a thread Tire rubbing on frame 9/25/2016 2:22 PM

It does look like you bent the left chainstay. If the gap on both sides of the tire at the seat stay are the same, the tire is centered. You could try prying the chain stay out, but it will take a lot of leverage and you may go to far and break it...smaller ... more »

Agreed - fold down fork standers and bolt on frame standers are all I will ever use. These 'peg' things on the axles will just never be popular. They strip your threads and bend your axles, so no future in 'em. None at all.

Because that was in 2007 and we have a whole bunch of new tricks and stuff, along with new riders now? Does anyone know if the suicide brand pegs ever made it to market? The two demo videos on youtube are both by the inventor. No evidence of them being ... more »

I wouldn't use an actual automotive bearing. We put men on the moon. We have ariplanes that weight 1,2000,000lbs and carry 800 people. We have tractors that can srpay an acre of crops in 15 seconds. Cars with 10,000 horsepower engines. There is an out ... more »

There are two claims here: 1) it wouldn't work 2) it is not needed To address 1) it certainly could work. With a traditional bearing as used in most BMX parts? Not for long as they are meant for a radial load. What you need is something that can handle ... more »
