It's not the upsweep that looks strange to me, it's the huge box. Sick bike.

With Ti, you're paying for the weight, literally, because the strength of a Ti part is no more than a chromo part because chromo has the ability to flex.

Ti strength to weight ratio is really high, but it's a very brittle metal. While chromoly will flex, if Ti is flexed to that point, it would have snapped. So yes, it is, "stronger," but still very susceptible to snapping.

Thanks! What size you have?

it's still small, but yeah, maybe they changed it a bit over time.

Haha thanks! I was hoping you meant the bike =P

Haha the clamp on it broke and they sent me a gold one, which is why it's not black anymore. It's a great stem though. Holds on tight and doesn't slip.

haha maybe for a green one! =P Check out my update though! I got tanwalls and a fit barstool stem, and painted some parts to make it look cleaner! It's in the top of my signature.

Woops! Yeah for nose manuals, I'm just afraid of going over the bars in that position. Like, I've said it before, but I do pegless smiths here and there, and I'm not afraid of going over on missing one. With a nose manual it's different. I can bonk like ... more »

Haha I get that all the time... I used to run really small tires front and back, 1.95 would always be my front, 1.85 and 1.95 in the back. I tested around, trying eastern curb monkey 2.3 front and fuquay(Spelling?) flyer 2.3 in the back, and it was too ... more »

Thanks dude. I haven't tried hang 5's in a long time. They were just too scary, to be honest, when I tried them before, but I'm trying to get better at nose manuals since I think they're cooler than 5's.

Thanks dude. I love the look of smith to manual! How could you not like smiths!? Haha

You can ask them to do 3x or 4x. Both ways are perfectly acceptable with 36h, but 3x is easier to replace broken spikes and keep true, but 4x is slightly stronger. The way I started with peg less grinds was the fact that I would be peg less at spots ... more »

What parts? Sealed bearings? Everything tight? Grease it all up? You're gonna have to tinker with it to diagnose the problem, but check for hub wobble. If it wobbles side to side slightly, tighten your cones. Grease all metal on metal contact points ... more »

I'd highly, highly recommend anything I have, especially the wheels. I've had the rag her to rollcage for about 3 years now laced 4x and I'm pretty ruthless on wheels, as I blew the shit out of my last set. You really just can't go wrong with gsport. ... more »
