Dark mode only saves power on OLED screens, and even then dark mode barely has an impact. Most dark modes aren't true black, so you're not taking full advantage of it. And then if it was true black, you'll run into smearing when scrolling. But dark mode ... more »

I don't really think it was about the name being inappropriate, I mean, it was BMX in the 90s. I think it was more about brand image. G-Sport's products have always been some of the best, and G-Spot seems like an immature name that doesn't really fit ... more »

He's right, G-Sport was originally called G-Spot. CBA to find anything about it right now, but the R was definitely added in after the fact.

Edit: Ok, let's try this again. I originally quoted the wrong post but whatever. Socket Drive does not wobble. The interface requires the sprocket to be pressed on to the seat. If your's wobbles, it was manufactured incorrectly. So many companies had ... more »

This. You have a HUGE amount of completely unnecessary heat, when you could have just used a thicker tube.

BMX definitely got me more interested in both engineering and manufacturing. Then I went to college for engineering and learned I only really cared about it in the context of BMX. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But it's definitely an interest that will carry through the ... more »

I love the Tao style front end. Chainstay plates are still useless tho. Thicker tubing is the solution.

Honestly, I think BMX will die off completely before that happens. BMX has become incredibly stubborn and resistant to change. We couldn't even adapt Socket Drive, an interface that was hands down superior to previous solutions in just about every way. ... more »

Yep, it's not like anyone has ever said "I can tell my hub is not concentric, I wish it were machined better." But for me, it makes me think that all aspects of the manufacturing process were properly considered. I think we've kind of plateaued for the ... more »

This has much bigger bearings (17x35x8 compared to 17x30x7 or 20x32x7), an improved manufacturing process (Like the Roloway front hub) that ensures perfect concentricity, and from the outside it looks like it might have a beefier, or at least updated, ... more »

The Supreme goes against everything I am about, so I would recommend that OP sticks to 510s. He never said he had a problem breaking them, just wanted to see if he could find anything more stretch resistant. The Supreme is almost double the price of ... more »

OTOH, I ran a Keychain for well over a year and never had a problem with it. I didn't ride particularly harshly, but I do crank pretty hard at most things. I think the Keychain is very hit or miss, you either have a shit ton of problems with it or it's ... more »

Added reply in a thread What is the most stretch-proof chain out today? 3/22/2019 9:52 AM

Yeah, just for the Keychain. It uses 3mm bolts to install instead of a traditional masterlink. It makes it much easier to work on, and I've personally never had an issue with them failing. But I have seen quite a few fail at the half or master links. ... more »

Added reply in a thread What is the most stretch-proof chain out today? 3/22/2019 9:40 AM

Try an Odyssey Keychain. It's more overbuilt than most chains so it should stretch a bit less. Just be cautious with the master and half links, as they tend to fail around there if you're not careful.

BMX drama is at the exact same level as Instagram "influencers." The only people that care are fucking idiots.
