Paint and clearcoat the ever-living piss out of it? Have one made? Get vinyl decals made or buy lettering from like walmart, then get plexiglass and build a box around it and seal it up super well.

I saw something like 2 years ago, I can't seem to find though. They took a horribly rough ledge and got it like glass smooth. They used a mix to smooth over the whole ledge, then a sealant but they also used legit concrete tools to make it look like ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pedals with more grip? 2/9/2018 8:20 AM

This, there is a balance point. Too much grip = bad, not enough = bad. BUT if you ride in slick conditions (snow, rain etc, even dust) you increase the slippage risk. Run shin guards and you don't have to worry about shinners as much. Try to keep your ... more »

Until the glue rips and the shoe falls apart in like a month, leaving you with that pedal in your heel. Source: I rode in Vans on PCs, and the sole and sides split apart pretty fast. Glued a couple times.

Nope, not bottoming out. I'm not super worried, I can crank em down and have gotten used to it. I figure new crank day is coming, and since I work at a shop I can snag solid deals up. Just need some cash. I have a swap meet in a week that should help ... more »

It's not waxed...yet...(skaters will absolutely LOAD them up). I plan to manual em a bunch. One of these days I'll post a couple shots of em. It has been lie 2 degrees F here, and we got a bunch of snow a week ago that just won't go away. I get sad when ... more »

That's nuts and all, but not 5 stories, even at the roof line. You can see the roof would be 3rd-floor where he hopped off it, and he jumped down onto that other roof, which would be a second story if it wasn't a roof. So while he is up pretty far, he

I LOVED my alloy Animal Hamiltons for a long time. They have migrated to my MTB for winter-come summed it is clipless life. The BMX has PC Grandstands, I like em. After a year or so they have developed a little play, but I expect that with bearingless ... more »

That makes WAY more sense. Still 5 hours seems long. I had 2 airbags, rear diff and axle seals and bearings done on a Honda Pilot in under 2 hours locally.

Yep. I've reconfigured and fidgeted with everything, and without making them basically welded on tight, they have a little play. I get the idea on the wedge system, but I will be going back to 48 spline to avoid the extra pieces to worry about come when ... more »

5 HOURS?! WHY?! I do them myself in like 20 minutes, including going to buy the filter and oil!

Added reply in a thread Mongoose team frames 2/8/2018 5:17 AM

I don't believe this is accurate...because Laird would be doing nothing but frames and have an overwhelming list of frames to build. He may have built an individual frame for Scotty at some point, but I sincerely doubt he is welding literally hundreds ... more »

Very much for reference. I am 6 feet tall on a 21.25 and LOVE it. I used to run a 20.75. I would say look to riders like Ryan Nyquist (who is similar in height to you) and see where he is at. A 20.75 would be a good starting size for you to get comfortable ... more »

I saw somewhere someone used Gyro tabs to rig something up, they were bolted on the inside of the drops far enough forward to accommodate the driver etc. Google search found this homemade version:

This is what I did to my bike last night.

Added reply in a thread Bone Deth is dead 2/7/2018 5:09 AM

Part of that is because this nibble ledge stuff wasn't around, and bikes weighed at least double what they do now, so you HAD to go fast to get off the ground. Source: I started on a mid 90's Dyno that weighed double my current setup.
