Added reply in a thread New sprocket issue? 3/22/2019 10:19 AM

Why don't you add one more spacer to move the sprocket away from your frame. Maybe you are just bottoming out the bolt when you tighten it? You did mention the sprocket teeth being very close to your frame right? Have you tried adding spacers at all? ... more »

This is also very true.

I really like the Yukon hub. One of these days I'm gonna pick one up. I'm not a huge kink fan either, but they do make some quality hubs.

Literally, not just me. people definitely do ride 3 pegs. It's been known to happen.

Added reply in a thread My chain keeps hitting my frame 3/16/2019 6:46 AM

Could be your new chain is stretching a bit, or your bolts aren't tight enough. Either way it's no big deal. You should definitely learn how to do this, and other simple maintenance stuff by yourself. YouTube is your friend.

It's probably happening during installation, I don't see how it could happen afterwards.

Holy shit this is the dumbest thread I've ever read. Kids are getting dumber. This is a serious social issue right here.

Added reply in a thread gap between back peg and back pedal 3/15/2019 5:27 PM

You could just ride 3 pegs. I personally don't see the point of 4 pegs, when you have pedals, and a sprocket. That's just me.

Added reply in a thread Forks 3/7/2019 4:43 AM

that coating you are talking about is pretty much just oil. and yeah, heat treated stuff is definitely dipped into an oil bath after the process, that causes it to darken more. if you ever look at the welds on a raw frame, you can clearly see the affects ... more »

Added reply in a thread Mongoose Expert for sale. Need help on year and possible value! 3/6/2019 4:31 AM

Second this. They'll be able to help you out more. Seems like you already know what it is though. As for the value, it's whatever someone is willing to pay. Vintage BMX stuff is like that.

Added reply in a thread Can Anyone help me id these frames (supposed S&M) 3/6/2019 4:26 AM

Doesn't look like s&m to me. Did they ever use a head tube like that? If it was a solid costom, that would be even cooler though. S&m has been known for some shotty welds from time to time though.

Yeah dude, took a break from vital for a while. Still riding tho. Kinda got sick of the "is this a good bike". Threads. My smart ass is back for the moment. Good to see some familiar faces.

Added reply in a thread Forks 3/5/2019 4:48 AM

Wtf are 20.5 forks lol. I'm confused. They aren't heat treated either, unless they were sandblasted afterwards. I have some raw, fully heat treated forks, and they look dark, dark grey. Heat treated stuff that's raw, should look almost like it's grey ... more »

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.
