Are... Are you seriously comparing Tony Hawk to Brandon Begin right now

Added reply in a thread CRANKS GET SUPER TIGHT HELP!!!! 10/18/2017 9:17 PM

Okay, is it your cranks or hub? Cause if you're tightening up your back wheel THEN your cranks get super tight, something's messed up with your hub. Likely the lock nut(s) being stripped and not doing their job properly

No, but I'm also not getting butthurt about it online. I actually don't care for Begin at all, I'm not a fan so nice try.

Added reply in a thread Using Spare Chain As Bike Lock? Idea 10/18/2017 12:57 AM

I'm pretty sure I've done this before in a pinch... I just took my own chain off (master link) and used it. In theory it would work. awhile back I thought about making a makeshift lock out of a shortened inner brake cable and something similar to a cable ... more »

Your doctor's a dipshit. I had a doctor tell me sort of the same thing before that I should give it up cause of the damage bmx does to the body. I almost told her to fuck off. Saw a specialist and he didn't say any of that. I stand by the statement "if ... more »

Yeah the bolts, but I've also bent a chromoly center axle before. I grind A LOT. I just said fuck it and rode with it bent, eventually just got a new hub altogether (not solely because of the bent bolt haha) but no damages to the axle itself They were ... more »

Your brain thinking that doesn't magically make one stronger or weaker than the other. I can tell you from experience that 14mm male is stronger than 3/8" female aluminum and chromoly, for grinding at least. To repeat myself from my above post, I've ... more »

14mm female > 14mm male > 3/8" female > 3/8" male, in terms of grinding anyway. I base that on the fact that I've bent front 3/8" axle bolts, and have yet to bend my 14mm male axle in the rear which is/was much older than those bolts. And generally ... more »

running a hub without a pawl is a bad idea, running without 2 of them is even worse of an idea. technically 3 pawls are more efficient, the reasoning being all 3 pawls engage at the same time, where as with 4 (not sure about 6 pawls though) there's a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Need some grease 10/14/2017 6:15 PM

Don't grease your chain, and also don't WD40 it either. Get chain lube. I personally use white lightning clean ride and it works amazing. Grease I just use whatever as long as it isn't real thick
