Hi all, Long-time brakeless rider planning to build a bike for dirt jumping. I searched a bit but would like to hear opinions on these 2 question: 1. Is there an industry standard for 990 brakes, or will anything from a reputable company suffice? Basically ... more »

Awesome. Thanks everyone.

Added reply in a thread Rear hub bearings f***ed after 4 weeks 3/6/2018 7:54 PM

Cool, thanks. I'm mechanically illiterate -- Does the fact that it's a sealed hub mean that once the bearings are blown the whole wheel must be replaced?

Hey everyone. How long should a sealed rear cassette hub last indoors on light skatepark riding? I just bought a United parts kit and built it on Nathan Williams' old frame (United Mothership). I'm a shitty rider that quit 14 years ago and just picked ... more »

Thanks. Yep, those are Deity pedals I took off my dirt jumper, which is in disuse until dirt jumping season.

I ended up splurging on a new United Mothership 20.75" frame ($220) and United Supreme parts kit ($499). More than I originally planned but I'm super amped on it.

Visually it's looks dope. I noticed potential-buyer questions on the page that haven't been answered (maybe you posted them -- good questions, the answers to which I'd want to know too): -Is it full 4130 Chromoly throughout on the frame, forks, and bars? ... more »

Cool, found it on Danscomp $499... Haro SD AM for $499 I didn't realize it had a freecoaster. I'm not 100% opposed to the idea of getting a setup with a coaster, just a little iffy about it since I've never ridden one.

Added reply in a thread Best complete BMX under $500 (2018) 1/18/2018 7:17 AM

Saw that -- great price. I'm going for a cassette only because I've never ridden a freecoaster.

Cool, thanks man. I've looked on CL in my area (New Hampshire), not a ton out there. I come from the world of downhill mountain biking where new stuff is usually $4,000 to $10k and decent used rigs are $2,500. So $400 to 500 for a new BMX feels like ... more »

Damn, that was fast. Thanks everyone. Hope to hear from more people as well. I ride brakeless, pegless, and probably I prefer a cassette (I've never ridden a freecoaster, but I think I'd take issue with the extra pedal slack and the lack of backward
