Added reply in a thread which front hub between profile mini vs gsportsimian vs shadow symbol 6/23/2018 8:19 PM

The Shadow is in the middle though, a male axle hub would be at the bottom, G-Sport at the top, and Shadow in the middle as it's fairly generic but then again most front hubs are. My only gripe with the G-Sport is that it's an aluminum axle. Yeah sure ... more »

Added reply in a thread which front hub between profile mini vs gsportsimian vs shadow symbol 6/22/2018 11:35 PM

I'd personally get the Shadow. I have the Raptor front hub which is nearly identical to it (6902 bearings, chromoly axle & bolts) and I'm a well-known front hub killer, but it's held up just fine to all my grinding and I like doing a lot of hangers ... more »

Added reply in a thread Crankflippable BB Spacer Help 6/21/2018 9:30 PM

too much space will make the bearing stick out some. a tiiiny bit isn't usually a problem but generally I feel like they feel a little shittier when they're sticking out, even though the outer race seats are just to prevent the bearings from moving in ... more »

Added reply in a thread Crankflippable BB Spacer Help 6/21/2018 8:39 PM

Those guides aren't very helpful, too many frames use too many different sizes. The inner tube spacer is usually around 50mm, give or take some mms, but what size you use depends on your frame and the space in between the bearing. Do you have calipers ... more »

Added reply in a thread I want to buy a rear hub but i dont know about the dimensions. Please Help :) 6/17/2018 8:49 PM

you'll just have to look, sometimes hubs will have some dimensions to them. I'm not sure what some of those abbreviations mean but the O.L.D. is the hub spacing (rear bmx is 110mm), the F.T.F. I assume means flange to flange, so the offset is probably ... more »

yeah, they'll probably feel weird to ride with backward pedals unless you're mechanically inclined enough to swap the pedal bodies, but even then you run the risk of the pedals working themselves loose from the crank arm. my friend rode his Wombolts ... more »

do you mean pedal 5 or what? I don't think I've ever seen someone do a 1 footed nose manual but I've seen people do pedal 5s which is your one foot on the peg and other foot stays on the pedal. they're weird. I've tried them but can't do them

as long as the edges are fairly rounded I think they'd be good and look cool since they're aesthetically different from most others

it's fuckin scary. The park I go to often has a vert wall, I've aired it both ways and double pegged it, but that's about it. never dropped in on it though. I think it's 9ft? not sure. there was another one of similar height at a park nearby that got
