I maxed out at 293, still riding the same setup now and have lost a bunch. I have some goals for the weight and if I stay the course, I will hit em. Never had an issue with any parts breaking from it.

Looks like your cross pattern on drive side is off, as in they cross too close to the rim.

Added reply in a thread covid19 --- are skateparks safe 5/18/2020 5:32 AM

TO THE OP: Outdoor parks themselves are pretty safe, BUT if you dump it where some kid fired out a loogie and he was carrying it, you could get it if it gets into your system (on your hands then you touch your face etc). Same with the droplets in the ... more »

Right! I remember toying with them for fun on a flyout a few times like 15 years ago, and I got it 3/4 of the way around, but never committed. I wish I would have cause it would've been so rad to do.

Brand new likely needs to be broken in a bit. Go ride and see what happens.

Depends entirely on the cop and your local laws.

I hear ya with wanting wider pedals. I can't even ride my Animal Hamilton alloys anymore. I plan to get some replacement grandstands probably. Might go alloy too.

Being 13 years old, I would say MAYBE 75 bucks if the tubes hold air. I would not buy it as an upgrade or replacement bike.

I think there will be, and I think it will be any beloved brands that have closed their doors, and brands that stood out with colorways etc. Sunday/Odyssey etc will have a following, I could see some Colony stuff, but that would be more in Australia. ... more »

There it is-we FINALLY get a piece of the puzzle. Still, no model information. Redline has made several cruisers in 24" before-race and freestyle. And even then, many brands don't stock the STOCK FORK separately from a complete bike. In any kind of warranty ... more »

I've done a tire grab to bar into foam like 12 years ago. So I bet one has been done. I want to see the Neu-flip make a comeback. Double bikeflip? Reuel Erickson's Superman Decade making a comeback would be rad. Flip to hang 5. Brian Vowell is still ... more »

I've been saying it for years, create a contest series where you take riders from one "style" (park/street/vert/dirt) and they compete in a different avenue. Example, park guys ride street. Street guys ride vert. Vert guys ride dirt and so on. I want ... more »

Functionality isn't necessarily lame. It's REALLY expensive to develop new materials/innovations and test them adequately. BMX companies have understood this for a while, so they tend to let other, more lucrative segments of cycling figure it out first, ... more »

Carbon does pretty well with impact in the cycling world actually-here is an example of some MTB rims going through some real world solid testing: It's all about the layup. For aerospace, ligthness and rigidity is key, impact I would imagine, isn't AS ... more »

Eclat is running playing with them, I know a guy with a set. BUT I could see the bmx industry toying with small parts-brakes.levers, pedals, BB spacers, seatposts etc to start, and working into the more load bearing stuff. It's clear brands are starting ... more »
