what are those Animal ones with the fat ass axle? my buddy has them and they're pretty damn solid. he's messy with his grinds and they aren't wearing out too fast. for real tho, plastic pedals are kinda like tubes. theres not a ton of difference between ... more »

this. and dont do one bolt at a time. start with both fully tight, take 1/4 turn off the left, then 1/4 turn off the right, and keep the pattern going until both bolts are loose. happens to my female hubs all the time.

or just ask your lbs for a longer tube spacer? it'll only cost like a dollar or two. sundaybmxRR, what? you're just trying to psych out the newer riders. you do not NEED it, its just a good idea to use it. yes, your bearings will wear fast without it. ... more »

sounds a lil chewed up. go to your lbs and order new internals and bearings. should be an easy fix with fresh parts

be a real man and lace it up yourself. i recommend any hub with the SDS internals. i use an Eclat Pulse, and while its probably not the best system out there, its so easy to get parts for it in the future

http://sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html this old dude will share his wisdom. the rim is fine, you just didn't tension them evenly in the right order. if you really want to get precise, get the Park Tools tension meter from your lbs. once you lace a few ... more »

cover it in redbull, the sugar will make it sticky and grip better! lol tbh if he didnt do a good spray job and you dont have clear pads, i'd sand the paint off the braking surfaces with a very fine sand paper. or you could get a can of paint stripper ... more »

pour some boiling water on it or use a blow torch to heat it up lightly. when metal heats, it expands. this will hopefully cause the seized threads to separate from eachother. then use a big honkin cheater bar on the end of your pedals wrench for extra ... more »

most bmx bikes use either 184mm or 186mm spokes, though there are some exceptions. my buddy laced a Cult Match into a revenge rim and its a similar hub to the remix i think. i know they have something to do with eachother but i forget the details. anyways, ... more »

probably wouldnt hurt too much to take the washer out if you have to. my recommendation would be hit up your lbs and see if they have any narrower locknuts (the ones that touch the inside of the dropout). steel frames can flex a bit so narrowing your ... more »

no, regular loctite will not help in the longrun. it might help for a bit, but wont last forever. over time, riding the bike puts a mechanical force on the cranks and pedals called "precession" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precession so basically if ... more »
