Makes sense, I figured someone who would run sub 9” bars and a front load must have been around in the late mid school/ older new school times. I love the balance of shorter bars with short back end and higher BB of the newer frames. I’ve always been ... more »

My kind of ride here. Must be super responsive with the r15s. Does it ever feel twitchy at all? I like the litehouse, just set up one for the front of mine. Nice build.

I’m going brakeless next because I got some 25.4 bars and my levers don’t fit. They work perfect with my 22.2 stem, though.

Nice ride man. The 99-04s were good driving cars. Looked better than the previous gen too. I’m the Weber guy. I’ll take one over a Holley any day. I never much cared for one make of car over another. They all have their quirks. I adopted an 87 cutlass ... more »

Definitely joking. Bit of an edgy thing to joke about at that, but a thread like this is bound to breed a little controversy at some point.

I’ve said before, part of the fun in bmx is the infinite number of combinations you can make with all the parts that are available. I’d much rather have a completely unique setup than try to copy someone else’s just because I like it. Colors are easy ... more »

Cky, the T1’s looking good. Curious to see the Sunday.

Thanks, now I’m going to be thinking about rainbows next time I try to hop something.

It's not a big deal with so much information being online these days. I assembled my first 3 cross wheel in short order following along with a how to video. Took me as long to true it as it did to assemble, possibly due to enjoying a few too many adult ... more »

Bmx Guru is great. I've bought stuff from them a few times over the years. As far as I know they ship to U.S. only, though.

Yup, I’ve always trued my wheels on the bike. I use the brake pads on the back or a wire tie on the fork.

Good buy on the Trust. Some really nice components on that one. Be curious to see the paint outside in good light.

My VHS is finally assembled with some new parts. I'm happy so far with how it turned out. I'll get better pics when I get the energy to get my lazy ass off the back porch.

Y'all aren't alone. 24's do seem to be less common, but I've seen a decent few out and about. Mine gets used for racing more than cruising, but usually still gets ridden once a week or so. It came with 6" Haro bars as pictured below. It was a less than

Fortyseven, it does pay to keep ahead on maintenance. Sounds like you have a pretty squared away setup. I was doing an easy going little driveway session on the old Aitken today and broke a chain. Lucky for me it happened while I was at home, so I just

I know this feeling all too well. We got saturated this year. Of course now the weather is nice and I can’t help injuring myself. Trying to restrict myself to cruising and not getting overzealous for a bit, but it’s just hard to find the restraint. Might ... more »

Also, nobody who’s spent any time in the bmx world will give you any grief over using a variety of parts and mixing brands. It’s part of customizing your bike to suit your preference. This is why you seldom see two bmx bikes that look the same. It’s ... more »

That’s a pretty common place for having pain. I get sore there sometimes. Usually I attribute it to going overboard with pulling exercises in my workouts, but I could see where riding could cause it as well. It’s not fun to do, but rolling on a lacrosse ... more »
