Added reply in a thread Which Custom Frame Builder 8/7/2018 6:19 PM

I saw complaints about PDC a ways up, and thought I'd counter with some good experience. A friend of mine managed to kink the downtube on one of Dave's frames by nose casing a 30' double (at Jeremy Ball's spot). Dave's welds survived the wreck unscathed, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are you a weight wh@$e? 6/7/2018 8:42 AM

I used to buy really light stuff. At one point my bike was down to ~22 lbs, but it started to feel super sketchy in the air. I started swapping in heavier parts when I noticed that my brother's stock complete somehow felt better through the rhythms at ... more »

Started new thread Trails Websites 6/7/2018 8:26 AM

Does anyone know of any good websites devoted to trail building/riding? I'm specifically looking for a replacement for Can You Dig It which, long story short, recently went silent. In the past I've had Vinyl BMX, Build The Woods, and Trail Life but unfortunately ... more »

3/8 is definitely still noticably bigger than a pencil so be careful with that check. Just measure. It will either be 3/8 inch (most likely) or 14mm, which is a little bigger than 1/2 inch (not likely unless your forks are 10 years old.)

Added reply in a thread Finally decided to put a helmet on 6/14/2016 10:12 AM

I've been riding a segment for a while now and it's great. Sits lower than any other helmet I've ridden, especially if you take the top pad out.

This^ In my experience the brakes have been all set up. Pretty much just wheels, pedals, and bars to do yourself.

Added reply in a thread Normal weight? 5/31/2016 9:49 AM

When I had no brakes and light weight tires my bike was just a hair over 20 lbs, but I have to say I was not a fan of having it that light. It didn't ride very well and felt super loose and twitchy in the air. I've since switched to heavier rims and ... more »

Added reply in a thread light rims! 5/24/2016 10:16 AM

I'd second the recommendations for Odyssey Aerospace or G-Sport's. Though you're not gonna do a whole lot better than the Hazards, at least for a back rim. You could definitely put something lighter on the front, but keep in mind a lot of lighter weight ... more »

Here's a picture finally!

No breaks right now. I'll probably put them back on once I get the new wheels laced up this weekend.

That's odd, I've had them for a few years and no problem with that. One of my spindles is a little bent though. @grumpySteve your bike check was actually the inspiration for rawing mine. Really liking it!
