I don't know how easy it is to see, only my right one is falling apart like that. It doesn't look as bad as it did, I had previously trimmed some excess off with a box knife.

I will get a pic sometime, they're not just melting. It's from friction on the rim when stopping, like it's pulling the pad apart kinda. It is about 100 degrees F here right now and I noticed it after a downhill brake application, so it might have been ... more »

Oh, so you're supposed to toe the leading edge in? No wonder mine still howl, I toed the trailing edge in. The weird thing about mine, one, and only one, is like "melting" turning into a gum like substance.

It doesn't have that much? It doesn't have 45 degrees but it has a quarter crank? Lol what? A quarter crank is double 45 degrees.

I think I remember seeing that bike on the Facebook classifieds here in ok. You didn't buy it from a guy named Chris did you?

The mission cease are pretty wide, they came on my complete with 2.4 tires and I'm pretty sure they'll clear .05 more tire. I'll have to look to be sure, but they're set up for wide tires. Cheap too

I carry a shovel when I ride, so I can ride over to 4 year old threads and dig them up.

Interesting, I never thought about the ring the clutch actually grabs being threaded into the shell. I have to check that out. Thanks!

Added reply in a thread Khe style freecoaster rhd to lhd 8/7/2017 10:27 AM

And I just discovered that the east-coaster clutch is threaded for both lhd and rhd. So you can switch drive sides by just switching out the actual driver. No need to disassemble the hub. You can see the dual thread pattern if you look closely at the

Added reply in a thread Khe style freecoaster rhd to lhd 8/7/2017 10:11 AM

I'm thinking the only thing that might hinder me, is if my hub bearing on the drive side is a different size than whatever driver I order requires. Even then I could just order a bearing with the appropriate inner and outer diameters. I think I'm gonna ... more »

The driver slides over the axle, no threads. The threads are on the outside of the driver for the clutch to thread onto when you engage it. Both pieces slide freely on the axle

Added reply in a thread Khe style freecoaster rhd to lhd 8/7/2017 3:58 AM

The goal is to switch to lhd. Switch out the rhd clutch/driver for lhd, spin the wheel 180° and put the sprocket onto the left side. My cranks are bossed on both sides. Hadn't been on a BMX in 20 years nearly. Bought a bike aonth ago, upgraded cranks ... more »

Started new thread Khe style freecoaster rhd to lhd 8/6/2017 7:51 PM

Since all khe style freecoasters are very similar, if I bought the clutch/driver from a lhd and installed it into my hub, it should work shouldn't it? In theory

Well, what does it say about their reputation that they're offing to fix somebody else's fuck up?

I agree $100%. He made a post previously about how he didn't like albe's and wasn't ever gonna order from them again, and he ordered from them again. He brought it on himself. They obviously took the hourglass headtube off and replaced it just to get ... more »

Added reply in a thread Not what I ordered?? ALBES:( 8/4/2017 5:25 AM

They would literally have to open every box to know for certain they all had the same headtube. That's a premium problem, not an albe's problem. The frame is priced $200 off retail. To most people, I don't think the headtube design is gonna make or break ... more »

You can't go wrong with either. The downside has a freecoaster and I believe the shovelhead is cassette, that would be the biggest difference. Which one do you think looks cooler? If you're not used to either a freecoaster or cassette, I would just get

For $400 shipped, that is one hell of a bike. If it holds up as good as it looks, I think that's probably the best deal on a complete going right now. Nice bike! I can't possibly see why eastern's higher end completes aren't recommended more for beginners ... more »
