I've decided to try out a fc since everyone is riding them and it seems like it would be fun to mess around with halfcabs off of stuff and fakie grind etc. So what's a decent one thats durable because I read that the demolition one (cheapest I could find) breaks easily so I'm looking at a primo freemix but I want opinions. And a complete wheel would be preferred but I work at a bike shop so lacing it wouldn't be a problem (I'm just lazy)

Bikes & bitches. We love running into scooter fags

freemix looks good, picking it up myself this week, the cult is supposedly good, but axle breakages have been reported, my ezra was good but its got so little slack
honestly get any khe design and it SHOULD be fine if you arent sean burns and you grease it every month or two

Actually no because a cassette does not allow you to roll backwards without backpedaling and therefore would be a horrible freecoaster.





There's this thing called preference, as steve has said.

I don't think you know what a freecoaster is...


I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.
