What you could do if your up to it, you could strip the frame of all its paint( paint stripper and wire brisle brush) finish sand with maybe a 320 sandpaper, etch prime it which is made to go on top of bare metal, then paint whatever color you want then ... more »

To say remove the thrust bearing Is to be completely ignorant to the fact that they tell you definitively Not to remove the thrust bearing on the newer KHE coasters that have them

First off the kid said under $200 rimjob..and anyone that rides a coaster knows that one of the coolest things about them is that they Don't make noise! And anyone that needs a sound that tells them when the hub is engaged shouldn't be riding a coaster ... more »

If you're in the U.S. check cheap goods they had the best price on the freemix pro that comes with both hubguards..I got mine for $165 a few months ago..that was the best deal at the time and he had them in every variation you could want

I rode one of them in the back for a long time they're great tires but something's going on over there at Animal and with Scerbo leaving the way he did, it don't look good?? I'd rather spend my $$ somewhere else right now

Reply to Merritt Option Tires (Update) 5/27/2015 11:10 AM

You're right..of course you could grind just fine with any tire but some will handle better than others and if they're making them to hold up a little better that's great.. Really I don't know if it works or not but Mike Brennan didn't have to get involved ... more »

Reply to Merritt Option Tires (Update) 5/27/2015 9:30 AM

So I sent Merritt an email with a pic of the tire this morning and a couple hrs later, Mike Brennan himself emailed me back and offered me another tire at half price since a torn tire really isn't a warranty issue, which I didn't think it was anyway. ... more »

New thread Merritt Option Tires (Update) 5/26/2015 5:04 PM

Living in Philly 90% of my riding is in the street, so when I see tires that are street specific I like to try them out. When I saw Merritt's new Option tire with "slidewall" technology having a thicker and smoother casing on the wall part of the tire ... more »

Check out the cult juvenile. It's a 16" and weighs about 18-19 lbs. I believe it's right there in the $400 range and prob could get 15% off at Danscomp right now. I bought the same one for my daughter. It's just like a real 20 but smaller!

New thread Fixed slack freecoasters-larger sprocket=less slack? 2/4/2015 10:59 AM

I've read somewhere that larger sprockets will shorten up the slack on freecoasters with no slack adjustments. Does anyone have any real experience with this? Just got a new freemix and haven't got a chance to ride it yet. Anyone running it got any info ... more »

Reply to What Kink bike should i get? 7/31/2014 9:51 AM

I thought all completes came with brakes..isn't it a law..I know it is in PA, but not sure about everywhere else..and besides if you really want a liberty you could just buy a set of brakes and mounts and throw them on if you wanted to

Reply to Tips for beginner at grinding 7/31/2014 9:47 AM

All really good tips here but most important is keeping your weight balanced over whatever it is your grinding on. If your hopping on and falling right off, your leaning away from it..keep your weight centered over it and you'll notice you'll start to ... more »

Reply to Demolition zero or gsport ribcage 7/30/2014 8:54 AM

Gsport no doubt..cross lacing pattern makes it super stiff.. I run the roll cage on the back and it takes a beating but still hanging in there..I don't know the difference between the roll and the rib but can't go wrong with them
