Added reply in a thread Best tires for in the wet 11/16/2019 9:35 AM

This time of year I ride Primo V-monsters for a bit of grip, wear a set of overalls and just avoid puddles wherever possible. Still get a damp ass but the extra layer makes it slightly less shit.

I rode tentatively to work on a cheap chain I installed last night. A boring 10 mile round trip just hopping shit in the rain letting it bed in.

When I was 6 my mum bought me a Raleigh Mini Burner for Christmas (1983). I LOVED that bike! It had a coaster brake and I went through tyres like they were going out of fashion. My step dad got sick of forking out for replacements and had it deactivated ... more »

I replace consumables as and when they die and have a wishlist as long as my arm full of things I plan to buy when I have some spare cash (I'm still waiting...)

Snapped another chain. In the pissing rain. (Knee meets stem. So much pain)

Our Mazda3, with half the split back seat down, fits our bikes (a 20, a 24, a 16 (stacked)) + 1 full size human in the back. We did get a rear rack but it's a proper ball-ache. I'd rather just chuck em in the back and go go go.

Remembering to 'pre-load' the hop with a solid push down before pulling up made a difference for me. A little over 2 feet atm

Ditto, mate! 41 and loving being back on a bmx. Not loving the typically BS British weather right now though. Ride on!

I get that completely. But to reiterate what these guys have said; get a bike, get a helmet and get out there and enjoy yourself. You won't regret it.

My Mrs has a 24 and my son a 16. Love riding with them to new places. Off to Whitby this weekend.

My 6yr old's 16" Haro Shredder came with front brake, rear brake AND coaster brake. I removed the coaster brake though.

I've ordered from them quite a few times (including my latest complete) . No problems so far. But I'm in the UK so shipping was fast and free.

I curate my BMX news feed/s using the equivalent of RSS apps (aggregators?). Showing my age now - haha Lately I've been using Feedly (the free version - because screw their insane subscription fees) but there are many others to choose from. This approach ... more »
