Sick bike bro! The colors look rad! And tips for keeping your bike dialed would be
1. Keep a tight chain so your chain doesnt hit the chain stay on gaps and other hard landing tricks also keep your chain lubed with a properating chain lube so you can keep your chain from creaking.
2. Keep all you bolts tight but not too tight to where you strip the bolts. Keeping your headset and cranks tight will be a huge difference between soundin dialed and undialed.
3. Keep bolts grease and lubed to prevent creaking as well.
4. Lube your bearings to keep them from creaking or rattling and also grease around your on the outer race to prevent creaking as well.
5. Keep you spokes tight to prevent them from moving and flexing when you ride (loose spoke sound terrible and trust me you don't want your bike to make that sound so do yourself a favor and keep them tight)

Beside those tips I can't really think of anything else but if tou do all those tips and it's still not 100% dialed you can probably fing a youtube video or just google it...

Looks nice. Can't go wrong with a black bike and brow seat. Although that wonky seat has sent me a bit OCD!

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

Bought myself a few new parts for Christmas.
It's a fly isla 3 frame, the rims are alienation mischief, the back wheel is laced to a shadow BTR with vocal spokes.
The front is laced to a primo n4fl with vocal spokes.
It weighs in at 23lbs and I'm waiting for the chain to stretch a little more so I can remove the half link (without the half link the chain is too short to slam the wheel, but with the half link it sits at the very back of the dropout.

Thanks I am pretty proud of it and myself right now.
The BTR is way better than the stock hub I had before the engagement is a tiny bit sloppy but it somehow feels stronger when I pedal fast, it's pretty confidence inspiring.

I've only been able to ride this twice so far but today I put some griptape on the cranks (to help with pinching, I used to pinch my seat however that was never successful and I find hang 5s much easier with the seat like this) and I shortened the chain by half a link about a week ago. I will try and get a few more photos then.

Some photos I got today on a short ride. The bars were rawed then clear coated, the grips are temporary until I get black ones.

The bars and grips actually look pretty cool.

Have you thought about getting some brown grips to go with your seat?

Starting to show some wear on the new parts but that's how I like it.
Also replaced grips about a month ago to sensus swayze. Added a fly headset which is a lot smoother and also colony guardian Forks.
Cranks and tyres will be on soon hopefully, just ordered 2 fly reubens and a set of profile cranks.

Man, I'm loving the Alienation decals on the wheels. That black and white contrast is awesome.

Me too, unfortunately they are too light.
I'm sick of truing them every week and a few nipples in the back have rounded off.
I already have an eclat rim lying around so I might build up my wheels with another one of those and sell these to a flowy park rider or something.

Profile race cranks, eclat pedals (not sure which ones but I got them free so I don't really care)
And bsd kevlar beaded tyres being run tubeless. Photo

Lmk how the tubeless setup works out. I was heavily considering doing the ghetto DIY way but so many people recommended against it I didn't. Are those the alienation rims that are meant for tubeless?

Yeah this isn't a ghetto way it's the same way mtb/dirt jumpers do it.

I only got 2 good sessions in on the tubeless before i broke my leg but i checked them today, they were both at about 30 psi (from about 60) but both beads were seated and no sealant coming out!
