Added reply in a thread Is my bmx bike too big for me? 2/22/2020 7:40 PM

You're fine, you'll adjust to it. I've got a friend who's probably like 5'7" and he rides a 20.9 and does just fine. Personally, I'd much rather have a top tube that's too long than a top tube that's too short.

Truing wheels is not hard at all. Just take the time to learn how to do it and save yourself the money.

That's awesome, man. I think you made a great choice. That bike will hold up great for sure.

It depends on the bike, but with most actual bmx bikes you're definitely not going to break it right away, especially when you're first starting out. That being said, if you go too cheap, you're definitely going to run into problems with your parts after ... more »

I've spinaled and sacked myself pretty hard on rails before, but I've fortunately never been legitimately injured from any of them. A friend of mine though once fractured his tailbone from looping out onto a rail. Just stuff pillows between your ass ... more »

Added reply in a thread How many of your ridin a Chainstay less than 13? Or even what length is your Chainstay? 2/13/2020 2:18 PM

The frame I have now has a chainstay of 13.1 slammed but I run it at like 13.25. Coming from my previous frame which had 14" chainstays, I do prefer the feeling of my new frame. That being said, the difference wasn't as significant as you might expect. ... more »

Just keep riding. I wouldn't worry about learning how to barspin so early on, just focus on the little things for now. It'll all start to add up. As for the grease, it has a number of purposes, not only to stop something from squeaking. Put grease on ... more »

Does it look similar to this at all?

Added reply in a thread What do I have 2/12/2020 5:30 PM

Yeah, you're right. Not sure if that one came in green though, I've only seen the newer version in green. Hard to say anything without pictures

The supreme is a female axle. Unless they have a male axle version I'm unaware of

Added reply in a thread What do I have 2/12/2020 5:16 PM

I'm just gonna take a guess and say it's a green wtp cassette with a male possibly 14mm axle.

Added reply in a thread Odyssey grandstands loosen themselves 2/12/2020 12:02 PM

I would assume it's because of the bushing system causing more resistance, so when you pedal backwards it's easier for the pedal to loosen. That being said, I've got unsealed pedals and I like to tighten them to where there is a lot of resistance and ... more »

Yeah, jokes aside, since it evaporates so quickly I doubt a significant amount is being absorbed through your skin.
