After a quick Google search: I found two haro annex, one is haro men's annex and haro annex expert. Both of those bike claim to have two different forks, 1 1/8 threadless and 1" thread steer tube. I can't recommend a fork without knowing what bike you ... more »

Your headset was installed wrong. That broken piece looks like the compression ring, because it's aluminum. That ring should go below the dust cap under you stem. The piece that needs to go on your fork is steel (black), unless you have a fork with a ... more »

(37 years old, 5'10", 225lbs.)I just bought a YT Dirt Love jump bike (large, maybe I should of bought a regular) and it feels sluggish compared to a bmx. It's kinda twitchy and kinda agile but definitely not a bmx. But I still like how roomy it is and ... more »

Someone needs to apologize to the kid and have him come back. I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time. At least invite the dad back or whomever.

Your grips look floppy at the end but it might be the photo. Idk. Hope it helps. By the way I do run bar ends but I have some with a screw that I can take off really easy.
Reply to School me on bar ends.... 12/30/2019 3:43 PM

From what I can see, the grips aren't completely pushed on to the bars so the bar ends are just in the grips. I'm I correct in what I'm seeing?

Hahaha. If the bottom bracket shell is still round I say put some bearings in that thing and ride the crap out of it. Can't really do anymore harm to that frame. Didn't mean to laugh but this post is awesome. Thank you good sir.

They sell a spray can primer at automotive paint stores. The brand is SEM, IMO it's one of the best and comes in 5(?) Colors, white, black, light gray, dark gray and maybe buff (yellow) or red oxide. It's been so long since I've used spray cans. But ... more »

A lot of info on this thread. I've built custom cars for Toyota, Scion and custom paint as a hobby. Here are my two cents for a spray can paint job: 1)sand what you have now with 400 grit 2)clean with wax and grease remover (prep-all comes in a spray ... more »
