Added reply in a thread Odyssey Clutch V2 Freecoaster Maintenance 4/19/2021 9:26 PM

Generally, I found the Odyssey clutch is pretty easy to maintain...except getting the c-clip off of the non drive side is a bitch. Odyssey actually has good YouTube disassembly/assembly vids as well. They also did a really good job with providing an ... more »

Needed a new seat to replace my now-haggard Primo Biscuit (corduroy does not hold up well). Just bought a new seat from Paul’s: Federal 2 For Joy

Only have two tattoos that I got in my early twenties. Definitely don’t regret them but they are probably the most played out tattoos out there: 1. Bulldog with horns and USMC (old English text) on my right shoulder 2. My then-girlfriend’s name (we’ve ... more »

Got it. Wasn’t sure if you are just super into Cult or if you were on a budget. If $230 is your threshold, it may make sense to also check sites that have standing discount codes. Cheap Goods BMX is located in SoCal and has a standing 8% off orders. ... more »

Any reason why you’re choosing the Cult FC wheel? I have never owned one, but you can get a Primo Balance FC laced to their VS rim on their website for $260. Benefits: 1. True female (17mm) axle 2. Super easy to disassemble/maintain 3. You can adjust ... more »

How are the Phantom tires? I just shredded my Speedballs and need to replace. What PSI you running them at?

My short chainstay experiment is over. I think they are fun but overall just prefer something a little longer. Am putting these on Vital for a week before posting on eBay. Will be putting the proceeds to a TallBoy, now that they are back on the market.

Added reply in a thread The "I went riding today" -thread 4/19/2021 10:04 AM

Had 30 minutes to ride between meetings and thought I’d just ride down to the basketball court and do some spins/180s to test out the Primo Turquoise hub set. Only rode for about 10 minutes before my rear tire was rubbing so hard on the frame that it ... more »

Guys, thanks for the ideas! Just to clarify, I only seem to stream shows late at no get while I’m working. I say this because I almost exclusively look for TV-MA shows because my daughter is in bed and I actually can watch things that aren’t PG or PG-13. ... more »

A couple years ago I was visiting a client in central Holland and drove by a BMX shop. Really wanted to stop by after the meeting…but then we started drinking. A million Amstels and bitterballen (look it up) later and I was back on the train to Amsterdam. ... more »

To tell you the truth I was considering filming and posting...but this was my first flangeless. If I was videoing, I think 75% of the time would be me trying to figure it out with the balance of the time valuable instruction. I take apart and reassemble ... more »

Added reply in a thread N4FL/Flangeless Lacing 4/16/2021 11:04 PM

Update: lacing was more challenging than a flanged hub, but definitely not rocket science. The biggest thing is twisting the hub after only the first nine spokes instead of after the first 18. Used 3-cross.

I’ve never purchased malt liquor under the impression that I would be imbibing a classy beverage. If I was slamming OE, I was completely at peace with my trashy side.

Good point, often any savings is completely negated by the high shipping cost. I bought a frame there once and 15% off sounds really sweet until they charge $30 shipping. Might as well have bought it somewhere closer that has free shipping over $100. ... more »

In high school my buddies and I just saw some Dre/Snoop video and thought it’d be cool to roll up to a party with 40s of OE800. Super efficient way to get that early buzz, but... 1. Carrying big glass bottles around during a crowded house party is a ... more »
