Too responsive/twitchy is a bad thing sometimes. My bike is is real whippy and it feels like I've got about 5 degrees of movement when I manual before I'm off the back. Having said that you can pretty much get used to anything if you ride enough.

Sunday for sure, they deserve support. Not even close in terms of quality in my opinion.

I'd refuse to use that shop after what they've said. Mail order yourself a new one if you can afford it however with conversion rates it seems like 100 AUD isn't that much, new wheel would be like 3 times that. I'd definitely not use that shop though. ... more »

Learn it onto wood like us OG's did, my friend put an old mattress on top of the jump box which seemed to work pretty well. It's amazing how much easier things are when the risk of landing on wood/concrete is thrown into the mix.

You need to be in full time work too or v12/Hitachi won't give you finance.

The Verde is £380 at Source, really good for the money. Only one left though.

That's not the actual bike, get him to send you a some real pictures because that's ripped off google images, his bike won't be in the same condition as the pictured one. Are you still growing? If so you probably want a 21" top tube frame at the least, ... more »

You can't beat the clean look of any brakeless frame imo.

Just make sure it's not in the back of your car when it blows, I can tell you from experience that you will shit yourself.

If you're running high psi you may get away with dropping it, but the tyre's days are definitely numbered.

How tall are you? You need to make sure you are getting a bike that will be big/small enough.

Reply to Wierdest Thing Ever 4/20/2016 7:42 AM

Yeah I'd steer clear personally, seems too good to be true. Plus if you actually go on their website all the shirts are just stock images of shirts with their logo photoshopped onto. Scammers for sure.

I'd sell your paintball stuff and look at other second hand customs. That bike would be fine to start on as long as you can find out the sizing but it's worth no where near as much as your paintball stuff. Do some googling or ask on here about sizing. ... more »

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Has anyone ever done a warranty return through Source?

Reply to chain alignment problems 4/19/2016 5:38 AM

Maybe swap the bolt out for a flat one instead of a tapered one?

New thread Primo n4fl v2 hub play/wobble 4/19/2016 5:01 AM

Just bought a new custom complete and as the title suggests there is a small amount of wobble/play when the wheel is on the forks and tightened properly. Has anyone else had this problem with this hub? Is it a problem with female hubs in general? A quick ... more »
