Reply to Anyone else hate installing handlebars? 5/9/2019 7:01 AM

yeah its beyond attention to detail, its practically mental torture trying to get the brakes to be of equal distance from the rim on each side, yet pull and make contact with the rim at the same time. Excruciating.

Do you trust your welder? If not, you’re wasting your money. Just get proper bmx forks. Odyssey, Bone Deth, Shadow, Kink, whateveretc.

Wait am I supposed to be beefing with him on the internet?

Reply to Anyone have shadow killers 3/9/2019 9:23 AM

Since 2016 and theyre still holding up better than some parts on my motorcycle. But then again I also use the Bone Deth Penetrator cranks, which is kinda like a beefed up version of the Killers. I mean I havent landed crankarm grinds, but the ammount ... more »

Nah the stupidiest thing has got to be when somebody types a bunch of bullshit insulting other members who are trying to be helpful, then tries to backtrack by saying they were “trolling” when called out.

Reply to The best 26 inch bmx 1/16/2019 6:16 AM

NS Metropolis. Technically not a BMX but it will be as eager to get the front wheel up. It’ll hold a manual but you might wanna change the drive ratio for the wheelies.

Reply to My dog died because of me - sort of 1/15/2019 9:45 AM

I keep cats only now. I need asshole animals in my life right now. Dogs have broken my heart too much. I still have all their collars at my moms house.

Reply to Adidas shoes for bmx? 1/15/2019 9:35 AM

Just buy cheap Vans (not the pros, get the basic ones). They’re practically disposable after use and will hold up. They’re not the most durable but when they’re in their prime they ride really really good. Waaaaay better and less stressful than trying ... more »

Reply to Name Chasers... 8/6/2018 8:55 PM

Yes in this case. Ill buy any Bone Deth and Shadow products because I just like them without reason, and I buy Odyssey and some eClat parts because more often than not, they’re reliable products. I want to buy more FBM products, but I dont really care ... more »

Reply to Does anyone else throw there bike 8/6/2018 8:43 PM

No ABSOLUTELY fucking not. I’ve learned from years and years of skating that throwing your set of wheels (bike, board, scooter, inline skates) really accomplishes absolutely nothing. You will look stupid to everybody, your friends, strangers, even yourself. ... more »

Reply to Pegs ? 6/24/2018 2:25 AM

I can never make up my mind. I just have pegs on one side because had 4 pegs once and whacked my ankle on the back left peg. Back to two.

Reply to which front hub between profile mini vs gsportsimian vs shadow symbol 6/21/2018 11:10 PM

all three are good but the gsport or shadow would be easier on your wallet in both the short and long run. For the shadow you can probably find chromoly hubguards specifically for that hub while with the Simian the choices are limited although you can ... more »

Reply to More right foot forward riders these days? 6/18/2018 7:20 PM

Doesnt matter. Regs in skating and Rff in BMX, i still prefer to spin counterclockwise regardless. I mean I started riding bikes when I was a bit obsessed with skating switch, so that may have led me to start riding with my right foot foreward. However ... more »

Reply to Are you a weight wh@$e? 6/7/2018 10:26 PM

And the 23 lb one is my 26” cruiser lol.

Reply to Next wheel build! 6/7/2018 10:20 PM

Oh man I almost laced my Porn hubs to Haro Heffer 3s. Only that the Heffers were being sold laced to hubs (NOS off a 99 Mirra Pro complete), so I couldnt bring myself to take em apart.

Reply to Are you a weight wh@$e? 6/5/2018 7:53 PM

I dont really care about the weight of my bike (or bikes) to be honest. With all the modern parts that I purchase, I figured it would be easy to keep it under 30 lbs regardless whether I pay attention to weight or not. Which I proved myself correct when ... more »

Use conventional oil not synthetic oil.

Reply to Is Van Homan Street. 6/1/2018 8:54 PM

Dude, your city sounds like it associates anything fun with drugs and crime. But honestly expecting pro riders to say “No” to drugs? Keep in mind that these are guys who take 5 seconds to extend their 2-week-Californian-vacation into 6 years. But I know ... more »

Reply to Bye bye Nike 6/1/2018 8:25 PM

Not gonna bother rehashing this bullshit again. Im just gonna sound like a broken record. Basically if the shoe market was an ecosystem, Nike is equivalent to an introduced species upsetting the balance of the ecosystem.
