Added reply in a thread New to bmx, is this bike worth anything? 9/28/2018 8:46 AM

Yeah 150-200 sounds fair. I wouldn't pay more than 150 personally. Be patient and check around eBay. There's always some nice deals if your patient.

Been putting a lot of time and energy into my 2007 sunday first wave. This thing is dialed, and is absolutely my favorite bike I have owned. Also been putting a bit of work into my cult hawk, but that bike is a little more beat up, and less dialed. I'll ... more »

I've been saying this about hiten for a while. It wouldn't be so bad, if they didn't weigh exactly the same as a chromoly frame. That means it is half as strong in theory. All they have to do is make hi ten frames 6-7 pounds, and they wouldn't have such ... more »

I was just thinking the same thing. I broke my growth plate in my arm when I was 16, luckily it's only an inch or 2 shorter than my other arm, and it's my left arm(I'm right handed) haha. Broke that arm 6 times actually...never the right arm though. ... more »

$500-$600. I wouldn't expect much more than that, unless you want to part it out.

If your hard on rims go for the g-sport ribcages, Odyssey hazard lite, or 7kas. That way you only have to buy one set of rims instead of a second set after 6months of riding. Modern rims aren't triple wall anymore, only double, and the don't use 48 spokes ... more »

It's got a 21" top tube. Sprayed black, but was originally raw. No dents, cracks or grind damage. I think it's a 2015 model. It's been sitting around for a couple years collecting dust. Good all around geometry. I'd take $110 for it.

Yes, get a cassette for sure. They are a lot easier to learn most tricks on. Ride a cassette for a while, and if you feel the need, you can always try out a friend's bike with a coaster to see how you like it. I'd ride the cassette for a good year or ... more »

Yeah volume is a good company. I actually had a mystery machine last year. I liked it a lot. I just think Sunday is a slightly better choice. Better warranty, and I just like the looks of thier frames. They are clean with no gussets. The vessel would ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bearings for fly bikes front hub. 3/21/2018 5:46 PM

Yeah, that's the one. I guess I'll just run it till it dies. It rolls pretty good, but feels like one of the bearings is shot. Rolls good enough for now at least. I'll get my money's worth out of this. Kinda disappointed on the aluminum axle. I don't ... more »

This is the aftermarket front hub from fly. As far as I know it's just called fly front hub, I think. Just got a used one, it's in great shape, but feels like one of the bearings is on its way out. It's got a 7075 hub shell, and a tiny chromoly hub guard ... more »

Got a stranger nomad I've been meaning to get rid of for a while. I'd sell it cheap, it's in good shape too.

I wouldn't go for the street sweeper, even though I do love Jake, sorry bro. That frame is about as extreme as you can go for a techy, twitchy street frame. Go with a soundwave, or motoross, or pretty much any other Sunday. I'm 31 myself, and grew up ... more »

Cranks look like 48 spline though. Are those profiles?

Added reply in a thread DELETED 3/20/2018 4:52 PM

47, or 4'7"? If it's the latter, it's way too big. You want a 19.5-20". Good luck.

Added reply in a thread Fat tire or not 3/8/2018 1:26 PM

I think fat tires suck, and I'd personally never ride anything over 2.1. it's all personal preference but a nice 2.25 should be the best of both worlds.
