I can blast hella airs out of a bowl on my Kink Crosscut at 12.45 (essentially the same frame with a lower bb) it doesn't feel harder at all, honestly easier than a longer one. you just have to be conscious that you don't need to put as much push into ... more »

Added reply in a thread Cult Match V2 just ain't right... 3/16/2022 9:56 AM

That bearing is not well. The hub shell where the bearing sits may also be a bit damaged. I would try replacing that specific bearing and confirming with cult if there is a washer missing and replace that too. It may just need to be tossed though. Check ... more »

It does accommodate a 12.75 but if you're running 25/9 with a new chain, it only goes to 12.65 tight. (Which could be why sites have conflicting specs about the length) With another link, it would hit 12.8ish tight. if 12.75 is the length u wanna run, ... more »

Yes, I built the Laird for plaza tech stuff. it's pretty much a Dagger with a lower bb and shorter CS. Bike check for both coming soon. And yes. The Crosscut CS centers at 12.5 and mines already riding below that with more room to slam so it's definitely ... more »

GT was not in the wrong for dropping DeMarcus Paul for not following company protocol that all other sponsored riders are ALSO required to follow. If other riders can do it, so can he. Don't want to wear a helmet, don't sign the contract that agrees ... more »

The low pro rim is GREAT! I've run the same set for over a year with very regular riding. No warping or damage. Finally dented one while hanging up on a bowl with only 45psi and that is exactly what will happen to the strongest of rims out there in the ... more »

Chain sits tight at 12.5 on my kink Crosscut but I like it a bit loose so it's sitting at about 12.4ish? If I push the wheel all the way in it slams at just below 12.4. On my LairdFrame, the chain sits tight at 12.7 but I again, run it loose at around ... more »

Best way is to find a standard sized toaster and insert it. It should fit effortlessly with HubGuards included and butter should melt on it after removal if it is indeed toast. This is How to Tell if your Wheel is Toast.

No problems with mine. They all take a lot of force to get off. If your axle is bent or the cone was damaged excessively, it may be creating surplus resistance. Other than that, I'd go with what the other guy said of using a longer wrench. Are you using ... more »
