There is some truth behind that but how in the world do you improve your bike control if you never practice. Also, people don't only go brake less to improve bike control. I don't run brakes simply because i dont want the hassle of maintaining them and ... more »

i can second the style 112 pro's. I usually switch up my riding shoes every time i run through a pair but with the style 112's i ended up getting a couple more pairs. They offer a nice bit of protection for a low profile shoe and the ultracush insoles ... more »

9" bars with a topload and roughly a 13.3-4CS is what works for me at 5'9". I've ridden 9.5" bars and a 13"CS and it wasn't too bad at all. It's pretty fun to get into manuals since your resting position is pretty damn straight. However, i just wanted ... more »

Can anyone help me out with some pointers for learning Manny 180's? I can get them out of a half cab but it feels super weird to get them out of a straight manual. I can also 180 without carving which I heard helps but I can't link everything together. ... more »

Any manual balance combos. Seeing someone so balanced it looks like their bike is another limb always leaves me with a shit eating grin i.e. Jacob cable, Devon Smillie, Lewis mills.....

Thanks I just laced it up I just gotta get shorter spokes since I'm reusing some from an old rim.

Yea I get the concept I'll give it a try later. Does this method require longer spokes?

thanks for the link but if you actually read any of those titles you'd realize none of them are specifically cross laced. haha even the video you linked is standard lacing

Just picked up some ribcages but can't seem to find any info on the technique. Most responses have been the classic " wheels are hard take it to a shop and pay someone else to do it" what a crock of shit. Any guidance would be appreciated!

Added reply in a thread Has anybody ridden Devon Smillies Fuego v3 Frame? 8/19/2017 8:28 AM

Yep fly lists the CS length as 13.35 which surprised me considering Devon is one of the most technical riders out. I guess it gives more stability for all of the manual lines he does. The frame doesnt seem like it would be insanely twitchy but also not ... more »

It's the principle of your boss owing you money and you are still expected to rep the brand/work. I mean c'mon, LZ wipes his ass with that $500 that he would've got from stranger. The opener does seem like a douche though. When lz was put on, I remember ... more »

This was the best move lz could've made. now that he doesn't ride for a company and hes not considered pro who cares if he doesn't ride anymore, just let him do his thing. it's pretty sad to see how stranger has deformed over the last few years.
