Added reply in a thread No interbike - Major releases continue this Fall? 9/12/2019 3:05 PM

Maybe some charm of releasing new products will be lost, but I can’t see any company really slowing down because of no event.

Added reply in a thread Sprained ankle. Healing time? 9/12/2019 3:03 PM

However long it is, always, always let it 100% heal up, the worst is prolonging the healing clock by starting to use it too early.

Maxxis Grifter comes in 2.4” and is a well-rounded tire.

I don't think it's always the case, my Eastern Repeater scooter frame in 19.69" TT size and 7.4" standover comes in at 5.29 LBS. To compare, a stranger Quan frame with 20.6" TT and a 10" standover is still 5.40 LBS. Even an S&M Dagger is just shy ... more »

Aside from titanium, I’d say Tubolito brand latex tubes, cutting down your seatpost (if you run it slammed or relatively low), folding, skinny tires (Maxxis, Tioga), or hollow axles.

I second the last two replies, just try to sell it as-is at this point, no real value to trying to fix it up.

Added reply in a thread Very disappointed with myself. Time to quit? 9/10/2019 9:48 AM

I don’t intend to sound aggressive, but if your main source of disappointment is watching those who are younger than you ride better than you, I think you needa step back and look at the bigger picture. In every aspect of life, someone will be able to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Brakes - wtf!? 9/10/2019 9:39 AM

You’ll have a very hard time finding a complete with a gyro and front brake nowadays, even in 20” sizes. I don’t think many companies make gyros for 16” bikes either, and it’d also be hard to get a 16” fork with brake mounts.

Added reply in a thread Any tips for an old man on a freecoaster? Particularly roll outs/half cabs from fakie? 9/9/2019 9:55 AM

When I rode my coaster for a short while, I found that, for me, landing fakie then turning backwards to set me up for the half cab helped me learn. So at that point, it was more like a 90 degree half cab than a full 180 half cab. Over time, I started ... more »

DK Bikes at one point made a golf bag, but it’s actually a BMX bag designed to fool airlines so you can say it’s golfing equipment and avoid the costs of a bike. Don’t know if they still make them.

Added reply in a thread Very disappointed with myself. Time to quit? 9/9/2019 9:49 AM

As long as you find enjoyment, that’s all that matters. Started riding when I was around 14, I’m 19 now. Haven’t really progressed that much, can’t even decently hop 360 and will likely never throw bars. But progression should never be the primary goal ... more »

Added reply in a thread im 6.1/6.2 anyone know a good stem with high rise 9/8/2019 7:21 PM

This is for sure a good way to give your front end some serious height. Only thing is whether or not you enjoy the look of it, it's quite the giraffe of a stem.
