Undo the bolt into the crank arm, pedal it forward to the next Crank arm bolt hole, and reinstall crank arm bolt. Still going. It's V1 of The Grey sprocket from Steve's thing.

I had the same thing happen with my current one, I rotated it. Once another one cracks, I will replace it.

Any local shop to you should be able to help you out-failing that you might be able to get a new bottom bracket (I assume yours is a square taper crankset) you COULD go to a BMX setup fro cranks.

The setup at my local free park back in the day was similar to what you want to make, a 4 foot mini with a spine on one end, but they did 16 feet wide and two widths on the spine end-one was two feet so it was a "spox" (spine/box) and the other was about ... more »

This is why you build your own stuff, at least a box/rail and or a kicker. I've got three rails-two are tall enough for a BMX to grind. I plan to dig em out and set up a line in front of my house. I want to grab some lumber and toss together a couple ... more »

Well if it is dirt, just build it into a weird trails/park setup! I saw sand for one of them.

This. PLUS you can toss a few boards under one end and you have some more fun with either an uphill or downhill manny pad. In the future you add a frame under it, and some angle on the sides and you just turned your manual pad into a grind box. You can ... more »

If it is laying around, do it. Build it up into something different compared to what you do ride. As in brakes if you don't run em, pegs if you don't run em etc.

Not with the unsealed hub. Save some cash and grab a sealed front wheel. You can find em for pretty cheap sometimes.
