Clint Reynolds has some steezy lookbacks. Him and Aitken make me wish I was fuckfooted, it’s a unique style

My shadow symbol is pretty dope. Got it when antigrams were out of stock, it’s been great. Comes with a hubguard too.

I’m running the pivotal seatpost off my first modern complete bike, it’s from a 2009 wtp trust. Only part I got left from it. You guys are way more exciting than me haha

For real, only thing that eats drivers quick is shitty chains and shitty assembly lol

Added reply in a thread HOW TO IDENTYFIY WETHEPEOPLE FRAME 11/22/2020 3:13 PM

Looks like my 2009 wtp trust frame and forks too. I think you’re right with the year range, but they made a lot of that satin/matte-ish black back then so it’s tough to figure out which one it is. Your best bet would be sending those numbers to wtp, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hub problem 11/22/2020 3:11 PM

What happens with the non-locknut hubs with female axles is that between the bearings, driver, and any spacers/cone washers, something gets thinned out to where the axle is wider than all those things together are. If the axle is narrower, your frame ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sticking to Brands 11/22/2020 3:05 PM

I tend to stick to a few brands. I still try others if the companies I like didn’t have the geometry I like or availability, I just tend to stick to what I know. Never rode shadow parts before except chains and bars, but got some shadow wheels during ... more »

You want both arms to be the same distance from your chain stays back where the pedal bosses are, as few spacers as you can get while still staying around 1/8” from the chainstays with both arms (at the pedal bosses), and have the spindle be as far into ... more »

Loosen both pinchbolts. Loosen both compression bolts. Tighten whichever one is on the side that’s got the biggest gap between the end of the crank arm and the spindle (you can look in the gap in the crankarm by the pinch bolt to see). It’ll start pulling ... more »

That works fine for brake tricks where you just need to lock them up immediately. If you give it like a 1mm toe, you can modulate well with light pressure but they still lock instantly when you pull hard. I like the toe because they’re less grabby so ... more »

Circuit BMX has them in their online store. I used to shop there when I lived in CT, Vic is their owner he kicks ass. Chris Childs works there too he’s a good dude. Awesome shop. They have Sabre sprockets and galaxys available in 28t black 22mm spline ... more »

Both are 7k aluminum, the profile sabre is also. It’s basically pick a style and color if you got it narrowed down to those two

Ran a tree with the maderas from 2010 till 2015, then had a subrosa magnum with eclat tibias (not a spline drive sprocket) for a couple years, then a profile galaxy on the tibias, now I ride the columns with a galaxy sprocket. The galaxy is 7000 series ... more »

I love mine, I have columns, ran spine drive on my tibias, had it on some Madera cranks too. It’s awesome. No tight spots from the sprocket hole stretching over the years or a slightly loose fitting normal sprocket. Been on spline drive almost exclusively ... more »

I spent like two hours making this yoke out of a spoke, it was super intricate and fit perfect, but then when I went to try it, didn’t work at all lol. I made it like a u shape roughly, but when the arms bend with the hanger that close they come together ... more »

My CCR has a hole through the st, the barrel adjuster can thread into that or the lowest guide. I tried for so long to get them set up right going through but I couldn’t get them working right, the yoke was always too short for the hanger to grab. I ... more »
