Important to measure and get the right size. Also if you ride pegs they sell extra peg adapters, which are just a set of extra washers.

I have a pair of Simple wheel slammers, actually paid the $9.99 for them. Makes my wheel and chain easy to work on.

Added reply in a thread Would you rather a 6061 or 7075 stem? 11/13/2017 7:09 PM

I would get real upset if my Colony Official cracked on me. So far they haven't, and my bars haven't slipped yet. Wasn't aware that there was debate over this. I just assumed the stronger aluminum was superior when I purchased mine. I also have a set ... more »

I paid for one of their fully machined brake levers. A number of years ago, it's a very nice part. FlyBikes produces a similar lever these days, called the "Manual" but it's a lesser version of the one I bought. Or at least it costs less than mine. Had ... more »

I got a face full of dirt once, when I flew over my handlebars and landed on my face. Didn't break my nose, but there was blood. Also wasn't wearing a helmet on my head.

Don't forget bar ends, you could get cookie cut by your bars if you crash. I haven't rode front brakes in ages, but anyways nice bike.

Added reply in a thread Would this sprocket fit? 10/16/2017 4:53 PM

I believe an old/dirty worn out chain, wears the new sprocket a little quicker. May be the case, but someone correct me if I am wrong. Anyone else out there replace the two at the same time?

Will you also be getting a new chain? Some people say to replace chains when getting a new sprocket. You may need a chain breaker tool.

Added reply in a thread So...about the big ol' fatty tires. 10/12/2017 11:55 PM

I ride a fat tire in front, and a more narrow one on the rear. Keep both at 110 PSI. Feels okay to me, I prefer dirt.

Added reply in a thread What is your worst fear when riding? 10/12/2017 11:27 PM

I have a fear of part failures, and getting cut badly on the sharp metal edge of the piece. Such as a crank arm or my frame. Have seen pictures of failed cranks and they always look sharp. Broke one bone in my life, and it was because of a failure. At ... more »

Added reply in a thread Just a simple question...Do you grease? 10/4/2017 9:31 PM

I used This Type of Grease on most of my current bike. The stuff is expensive, and can even be used on Lunar rovers. I use This Other Kind In other areas. I also Teflon grease my brake cable. I leave my bearings alone. If they ever wear out, will just replace with new ... more »

Hey nice bike, very clean so far. Like the color you chose for the frame. I have a question about brake pads. I also have Evo 2 brakes on my bike. Even have a pair of Kool Stop BMX brake pads, that I used for a while. They were very loud though, so I ... more »
