Work hard, learn 540s and bar to disaster, then act like you can't until he 1 ups you, then WRECK him. I've done that in the past. Good times.

I didn't...but now I might. Downside is all the little kids wanting free food/beverages. Call me whatever, but I don't want to feed someone's kids if I don't know them.

Reply to People who grind goofy and ride 4 pegs. 2/27/2020 4:33 AM

Ryan Nyquist grinds right primarily, is left foot forward, but he spins left more commonly. He runs 4 pegs often, and front brakes. Ultimately, just ride and have fun.

So does that Brant Moore dude who seems to be pretty pumped on it.

Bikes are dumb now. We all wear Heelys and Soap shoes competetively.

If I were not married with kids, I would be ALL OVER THIS.

Reply to Rebuild or dump? 2/26/2020 4:22 AM

I'd turn it into a bike that is different than the main bike. IE if you ride only street etc, make a flatland or trails bike. But that's me. If it is midschool, you won't get much for it most likely.

The fact that everyone quoted the chain of posts rather than the last post, so we saw it like 6 times

I'd be down for real this time, cause we might actually have warmer weather by then, plus I can dig out some front brake moves.

Reply to Whats Up Vital 2/25/2020 4:30 AM

Nope, I left like two years ago. Bikes are dumb. I ride heelies now.

Reply to how to learn any trick in one day (BEGINNERS MUST READ) 2/24/2020 4:42 AM

I'm sad that there is a part of your statement I agree with. The "go out and have fun on your bike and get good" part. But I will say that tutorials CAN help a little-at least in a technique way. Also filming yourself fail to get away from what you are ... more »

Reply to Opinion? Least Maintenance Brakes (F+R) + Gyro 2/24/2020 4:37 AM

The only maintenance I do on my brakes is initial setup. Then it is rare unless I have new cables-cause new cables tend to stretch a bit.

Reply to Different brands of freewheels 2/24/2020 4:32 AM

Local track has TONS of people who change both the cassette cog AND the chainrings on the crank to optimize their speed/acceleration, based on how it rides during practice before the races. As to more options, it's honestly about the same. FW has around ... more »

Tom Haugen has been running one since the late 90s, even when he was on other brands. I saw he was looking for a couple a few years back to keep running them because of the durability.

Reply to Front Brakes!!! 2/20/2020 5:53 AM

I heard from a source in the industry back in the day that the removable mounts stressed the fork harder then welded and would crack frequently around them. Not sure how valid that was.

I'm 6 feet tall give or take 1/4 inch and at my heaviest, 293 lbs. If you have decent (not the cheapest stuff) you should be ok. Just upgrade as things break.

Reply to Front Brakes!!! 2/19/2020 4:56 AM

I am REALLY tempted to scoop up an F25 through the shop I work at (I can get it for cost). That way I don't have the weird like 16MM offset on my old Odyssey flatland fork.

Clean up the letters/numbers on the BB, sometimes you get a brand or frame model stamped there.

Reply to What’s up with eastern? 2/14/2020 1:56 PM

I honestly wouldn't put Eastern as one of the top brands anymore...Once they had the frame issues (much of that was people legit ignoring warnings, misuse, and the fact that they were among the first to offer super light stuff). They have (for the most ... more »
