If you run brakes I wouldn't use WD40 cause if that gets on your rim it is hard to wipe off and it will make your brakes not grab for crap

Added reply in a thread How much of a weight difference does less air in a tyre make? 5/7/2018 8:07 PM

There is times at the end of a session when I am worn out I leak some air out of my tires, normally just my front tire cause I do a lot of manuals and hops so it does make it a tad lighter for me. I run my tires pretty hard with lots of air so letting ... more »

Added reply in a thread How to Make a BB Press for Less Than 5 Bucks 5/5/2018 4:15 PM

I've been using my home made press for years, it is an old 14mm bmx wheel axle with some big washers on it. I use 19mm axle nuts with a 19mm wrench and an adjustable wrench for the other side.. but over the years I sanded my bb shell on my frame a few ... more »

Have you rode this Fit DL stem? I remember they had 2 versions like this one and the down low regular that was just a normal front load stem without the drop.. anyone ever try running it upside down? It seems if you did your handlebars would look Chicago ... more »

Friggin' Odyssey, always unpredictable and putting smiles on faces. I think they just did this cause they could, and the company has that respect where it is safe to say they have been around so long they are a setting stone. Surely other companies see ... more »

Added reply in a thread My home made hub guard works, test video 4/11/2018 11:28 AM

Thanks all, and I knew about the Gsport gland hub guards but I was watching a few videos on youtube of home made hub guards so that gave me the idea. I didn't spend any money or have to leave home so it will work for now. When I get better at basic stalls ... more »

So finally a little warmer weather 'still 38 degrees' but I finally tested my front hub guard that i made out of plastic and zip tied it onto my wheel. It seems to serve its purpose but will make more contact on a smoother ledge or surface rather than ... more »

I actually tried using a shoe lace at first, but I laced it through the spokes wrong a few times so I just grabbed some zip ties.

So trying out a home made plastic front guard because I'm cheap and still am learning double peg grinds. Not relying on it for long but the weather in PA has been crap so I made this guard out of an old plastic cerial bowl, painted it and zip tied it

My magnalite came with a titanium colored axel but it wasn't titanium, but for sure a good quality axel. And wow that is cool how did you mod your driver to accept 6 pawls??

Added reply in a thread strongest cassette? 3/18/2018 5:48 PM

I rode a proper magnalite v2 hub for over 3 years, I really liked how they use a bushing for the driver instead of a sealed bearing I think that made the internals a little bit stronger, the only thing is Proper bike co is out of the u.s so finding somewhere ... more »

I sort of hope they start including master links with higher end full length chains. It makes install, uninstall, and cleaning the chain super easy because you can pop the chain right off. I'd assume they stopped putting master links with some chains ... more »

Added reply in a thread Chain breaking - any tips? 3/13/2018 1:51 PM

I have used vice plyers many times to press the pin back into the links for the re-install. I only chose to do it because it is quicker and I didn't have that good of a quality chain tool. Adjust the plyers so that they will lock or almost lock after ... more »

I personally don't really like the way a regular pivotal setup looks, I just think without the hole the seat looks way more clean.. but coming from a dude who still rides a 10 year old seat with rails I would prefer the stealth style over regular pivotal. ... more »

Added reply in a thread What do you predict the next trend will be? Or the next one to "die"... 3/13/2018 9:34 AM

Way less pivital seats and way more stealth-style pivotal seats, pedals with a smaller wrench access area causing a regular 15mm wrench not to fit making a pedal wrench be about the only option. Forks being 28mm offset for "longer offest" rather than ... more »
