thanks man, it'll be completely sick when i get my 9t driver on and can rock 2 chromoly hubguards in the back. tired of doing grinds directly on my driver/chain. i have no idea how the driver still works so well after that many direct hits over the past year or however long i've had it.

I love it, if it had Front Brakes and a 9t back driver it would be literally perfect for me.

thanks dudes! if i could solve the friction problem in my front brake and make them feel good i'd probably commit to them. the last time i had front brakes full time was 1998, no foot canadians sound tempting.

no idea, i haven't ordered the drive side guard yet. gotta be sure i can run the thing first, and s&m was unsure if it'd clear 10t. tom/empirebmx said it clears a 10t profile driver though. not sure if the other available chromo drive side guards (daily grind, kink, division brand) work with 10t either. maybe with some dremel grinding, but i know i'm gonna have better chances of it clearing everything by stepping down to a 9t driver.

Nice...
Still working on my FBM. Dunno if it'll be anywhere near this steezy though...
