LET IT BE KNOWN! I'm going to do something I've never done before, and will never do again.... I recommend the cult, because it is a Primo Mix. Fuck rebranding...

Added reply in a thread 175mm vs 170mm cranks 12/13/2012 6:45 PM

If you run back peg(s) you have more clearance of your foot hitting, as well as giving you more torque with your pedal stroke. It's like losing 1 tooth on your sprocket, but with a slightly closer stance as well. I'm thinking of going to 170's when I ... more »

Pardon me for asking, but why? I haven't heard much about the venus, besides my friend riding it lightly, so I'm curious.

Over time, tires do stretch. I've had multiple FAF-2.25's and each one of them started out small and stretched out to get pretty beastly. As you ride them, the compound softens, the tire gets thinner, and the tendencies of rubber are to stretch.

I've seen full, new market value come out of an insurance claim, but most likely, this is true.

Added reply in a thread my bike got stolen ...f*** 12/8/2012 12:11 PM

They will give you the worth of your bike, not what you paid for it. So if your parts totaled up to more than you paid for them, you're in luck! haha I've seen the deductible be $250, and in more extreme cases, even up to $1000. Sometimes, it's not even ... more »

Added reply in a thread my bike got stolen ...f*** 12/8/2012 12:06 PM

Even if that's the case, you'll have to pay that deductible to get it back. Unfortunately, that's how insurance companies work. You have to pay in order for them to pay. It's bullshit, but that's life in the big city.

I don't know how it works in Canada, but here in the states, you can file that under your homeowners insurance. Pay a small deductible, probably $250-$500, and they will give you, in cash, the full worth of your bike. It's worth it if your bike was like ... more »

Yes. You should be concerned. Not only is your tire splitting, but you also stated you were putting plastic pegs on, which I'd be concerned about if I were you. (hehe... steel is real!) But really, email shadow. They should take care of you because that ... more »
