Sounds like a good deal. Definitely spend time learning and doing projects outside of class. Doing independent projects not only is the best way to learn, but it'll also give you something to put on your Github to show potential employers. You probably ... more »

First, it's great you're getting into it in high school. It took me until I was 20 to figure out I wanted to do it so I feel really late haha. JavaScript is a definitely a great place to start, it's super popular. I'm finishing up at a community college ... more »

I thought it was known for years that Adam22 was a piece of shit? Why is everyone surprised to hear this?

Is a ramp really a good choice for a product design project? There's literally nothing you can do to it, it's a ramp.

What distinguishes you from the other 5,000 clothing companies? Anyone with a couple hundred bucks and a logo made on Paint can start a clothing company. If you can give a decent answer to that question, go for it.

I don't want to be a downer, but there's 50,000 other people just like you. Making shirts and stickers with their logos on them. Their friends support their efforts for a few months, and then it's quickly forgotten about when nothing happens. The only ... more »

Your drawing indicates the top tube would feel longer. The steeper headtube pushes the bars more forward, so your top tube effectively feels longer, but your wheelbase feels shorter relative to a frame with a mellower headtube.

FYI, this process was already done by every other company before Eastern "introduced" this. This is how to properly weld a bike frame, they just weren't doing it in the first place.

Added reply in a thread Pedals with oversized spindles 2/2/2018 9:07 AM

It's important to remember that all the stress is going to the far left of the spindle. It's thickest point is quite a bit thicker than your average pedal, then it thins out as it goes further out as you don't need much material there.

Stop trying. No one on Earth knows anything whatsoever about 22mm spline drive. Not even the people that manufactured it or designed it. How.

The "official" way is to loosen the bolt and do switch footed hops until they come off.

Added reply in a thread Does anyone have any info on where all the bikes are made? 1/20/2018 5:49 AM

That’s exactly what I said, looks like a high school shop project. I sent mine back because not only were the welds shitty, but the headtube was ovalized so I couldn’t even ride it.

Damn, the S&M made Barcode I had 3 years ago was almost this bad. What the fuck is S&M doing? Also, fwiw, Taiwan is not China. A 5 year old is not making your parts.

I don't think it's a matter of good or bad, but rather that it just never picked up. There were like 3 non-Odyssey Socket Drive sprockets, but everyone I know that had Socket Drive loved it. I agree that Socket Drive should have been the basis for universal ... more »

Damn, I am sad. Did not know that. Socket Drive is perfect. The part about 22mm spline drive is serious, though. There's two different angles for the splines that are used by companies, and no one can figure out which is which and what works with what ... more »

22mm spline drive got fucked up and is now ruined. Socket Drive is the future and needs to be more widely adapted.
