Stem: fly central
Bars: fbm u.s apes 9"
Headset: spares box
Cranks: profile racing 175mm
Sprocket: fbm supernaut 25t
Pedals: fbm nice
Chain: bsd forever
Bb: gusset
Seat: animal Nigel
Post: spares box
Front wheel: profile mini, alienation felon, whatever spokes, tioga powerblock 2.10 tyre
Rear wheel: salt plus trapez freecoaster, alienation felon, whatever spokes, tioga powerblock 2.10 tyre

Not 100% about the freecoaster, so may be lacing up my rear profile mini again soon (3/8ths female axle, ti 9t driver).

The only thing I need/want now is some more durable tyres. Maybe the animal x t1 but they might be a little wide for my liking, or maybe tioga streetblock. Or maybe fit faf if I can find em cause my last one on the rear lasted 8 months, with no punctures.

She's dialled :p

I'll be giving the freecoaster a proper try tomorrow to see how I get on with it. This is seriously the nicest bike I could ever even think of having! Although I have had to order a few profile hub spacers as both hubs have just developed the infamous wobble

Cheer guys!
The freecoaster came off yesterday after a ride haha.
I really like how powerblocks feel, although 2.10 is a little narrow for me on the front. They're a race tyre though, I managed to rip a sidewall yesterday just from a couple of nibbley pedal slides on a metal ledge. I've taken them both off now and gone back to my bald fit faf on the back, and s&m mainline on the front. Once I've got a bit of cash I'll try to get a pair of fit faf's, or see what else is about at the time

Need a fat seat and fat tires lol. Red/natural walls would look cool. Funny you're not in the US but you have an American as fuck bike

I was just thinking that, but then I realized he has an eye for quality and good companies who are in it for the love of BMX.

I don't like fat seats or fat tyres haha. I like my bike to feel quick and stealthy. Note the home made dimple for better sprocket/sprocket bolt clearance and chainline :D
I'm a mid schooler at heart (kind of) so I like to support the brands that have been around a while, plus they make awesome parts, and seem to be in it for all the right reasons smile

I have some FAF 2.4 tan walls and they're ridiculously fast and very confidence inspiring going that fast aha, I suggest them heavily. I got a pair of folding ones for like 30 bucks on a sale.. which different color wall variations go on a lot

Nice choice on the central stem. Sick ride bro. I'd recommend fly Ruben tires. They roll forever

Sick ride, i really like it. Only gripe is the sprocket clearance. Is it really that small? That looks like it cant clear 28t

Sprocket clearance is terrible on the v1. I made a dimple to clear the sprocket and bolt. And run a washer between the sprocket and crank arm, otherwise the crank arm almost touches the frame too. You definitely couldn't get a 28t on there, unless you have a really wafty chainline.
They sorted it out on the v2 though

Got a new hub, took a typical "through the valve hole" pic cos I'm cool like that.
Laced it up with proper double butted spokes for the lols, hopefully they'll last? Haha
I'm planning to get a new front hub after Xmas and will be lacing that with the same spokes to save a few precious grams :\

Bro! Very very nice whip! I love the "old" brands you're still rocking. I'm a midschooler at heart as well and those companies were our bread and butter

That's sick! The only thing I'd do is flip the stem so it's right side up...

Edit: was looking at the pictures again and realized you got a different stem. Looks dope!

The fly stem was the right way up. It's designed to look like an upside-down topload, but is angled upward slightly to give it more rise. It has a 14mm rise whereas an average upside-down topload would give about 7mm (if it's a 23mm rise stem).


Thanks for the compliment guys!

I imagine the photos will change in a bit, no? :D Just a wild guess, maybe 6 - 8 weeks?

Hey, Steve! I've recently been watching a ton of edits from the U.K. dudes like BSD and such, and couldn't help but wonder why a bunch of dudes' seats are run with a few more clicks angled back. I immediately thought of your setup's photos and remembered you're there as well.

Is it just one of those "where you live" sort of thing? Just got me curious. Thanks!
