Reply to One brake barrel adjuster away 3/30/2021 7:52 PM

I ride a Darkwave frame, same brakes, same issue. I ordered this cable and it’s perfect. And I really like the split harness better than what the brakes came with. Never mind the 1 star review. It’s some idiot saying that the cable isn’t long enough

I hate when that happens. I am ashamed

What you’re describing is not normal. Take it apart, clean it, check for wear. If it all looks good, lots of grease, put it back together and try it out. If you still have issues, something is worn out or sticking.

It’s done! Got some Demolition Momentum tires on the new Primos and Demolition Trooper black/white swirl pedals to match the grips and seat.

My kids and I have 4 Kink bikes (Switch, Whip XL, Launch x2) and the only issue I have is the rear wheel on my Switch was a little out of true from the factory. Easy fix. Would definitely recommend if on a budget. The coaster has been perfect so far ... more »

Got my wheels yesterday. Primo Balance VS front and Freemix VS rear. Expecting one more delivery today and my bike build is totally done.

I’m riding 2.25 Path Pro K-Lytes right now. They are nice and fast but I want a little softer landing and a little more grip so I have some fatter Demolition Momentums on the way. Hopefully they work out. A lot of people like them.

Should be a killer ride. I almost bought that frame since it went on sale but I went with the Sunday Darkwave instead for the longer CS and 75.25 HT angle. And I wanted to try something different since I already have a Whip XL and a Switch from Kink. ... more »

I have the Switch but found it to be pretty twitchy and easy to loop out. I’m 40 just getting back into riding and decided I wanted something a little more predictable but not super laid back either. I’ve got a Sunday Darkwave frame built up now and ... more »

Makes sense. I can see how using it like a cassette would wear it out faster. Thanks for the input.

Reply to Who runs a Primo Freemix Coaster? How’s it working out? 2/19/2021 9:00 PM

Sounds good, thanks. The descriptions I’m reading of the current Freemix is that it is now adjustable. Maybe a more recent update since you bought yours? I guess I don’t really care. I’ve never adjusted my current coaster. Anyway, confirmation bias is

Finished the build for now. Will upgrade the wheels as needed and I want a cinema stealth seat post and maybe some different pedals. I didn’t put my pegs on yet either.

I’m 40 now and used to ride a Haro Sport in the late 80s-early 90s. We moved to Paris TX a year ago and it’s a pretty bike friendly place. Trail d’ Paris runs through the city and there is a brand new public asphalt pump track. Also a public skate park
