Added reply in a thread Why has no one made a fork and stem with splines like cranks? 1/20/2019 11:07 PM

Yeah, I was talking about if they found how to make it as simple as cranks with just a bolt and compression. Just like the diff between pinch bolt and standard cranks, the standards are actually stronger and have less breaking parts in addition to being ... more »

Well if you'll notice that your crank armsdont have pinch bolts and manage to stay tight with only the compression bolt, you can see that it's obviously possible. The biggest downside to that is that you may have to use a cromo sleeve for stem because ... more »

I've been down this road too and the most logical idea seems to be a wedge type system that would allow you to tighten it whatever height your stem is at. I actually asked my step sister who works with formula 1 engineers and with her limited knowledge ... more »

Holy fuck. I always wondered how FL stems didn’t hit on Barspins. That’s slim right there.

Here's a close shave for ya. The crank arm surprisingly never rubs. The back wheel is slammed but runs no problems.. until it goes out of true. What's the closest you've had something and still had it working? ... more »

I just watched a video of Rich Hirsch introducing the balance hub line. Its just barely out I think.

Added reply in a thread Forks to Bars angle?? 1/3/2019 10:32 PM

I've found the same, that farther forward feels less snappy when steering. I feel more comfortable and confident doing stuff when they're forward and like my hops click better and are easier to time. When my bars I back it feels like the front end is ... more »

I remember kids at the park talking about 8+ bars like who would ever want to do such a ridiculous thing and what's this world coming to.

I was on 6.5 odyssey bar mitzvahs when I was riding back in 2004. The lower they were the better was the school of thought then, I seriously wonder if it will go back eventually like clothing trends. I agree that 9 is a happy medium. Not that short but ... more »

There are many opinions but I for one have gone from tall to short and back and every time I go back to taller bars, everything feels easier. Airs, manuals, spinning tricks, rails, landing, all come easier and the most important is that I feel so much ... more »

Thanks for all your criticism. I rechecked my facts and it looks like I was wrong.. I was under the impression that it was based on what years you were born in but it looks like it's more about what "social eras" you "experienced" while growing up. Also ... more »

Curious if you can tell me Which words did I make up? One millenia is 1000 years. I didnt make it up. Go look it up. Millenials were referred to as such because they were born st the turn of the millenia. Also I'll just leave this right here https://youtu.be/TtIojDWOsgg ... more »

Lol. Well if you just buy a regular one but make sure it's both heat treated and tempered, you'll find that it will outlast and slice through all the haters non HT or tempered frames. Steel is steel, whether it's in a tube or sword shape, heating and ... more »
