Looking at that bike on craigslist i might trade for a Computer Graphics Card for the bike.. Right now I have a Crappy Hyper Bike Co Metro. Taking it back to WALLY WORLD. But This guy said he thinks he has a redline crank 22mm spindle. he says everything on there is name brand stuff. He also says His wheels alone were 300 Dollars new and there comparable to the best? My graphics card is worth more then the bike so. He said he would give me 50 dollars back. Since he wants 250 and my graphics card is 310. but hey idk. He lives Close by do you guys think this is a good deal or not?


Sorry for bad grammar its late.

Wow Fast reply some forums are slow so does it look like a good bike from the picture and does it sound like it has good parts.

I YouTubed some of the parts. and Looked on DansComp to.
I was thinking if i break the Crank get Primo Hollowbites heard there really good.

Yea I like the bike. The back tire looks like i need new Tire the Rim is a little wobble in the front and back. Not sure if that is normal The rims are Sun Rims. And they say RHYNO Lite Also says Justice Lite on the Rim. Back tire is some Mirco or something like that Demolition Front tire is FlyBikes tire. The Crank is starting to sweak when i peddle think it might be from pressure so I plan on getting Primo Hollowbites. it has Primo Peddles. Other then that it looks Pretty dope and im happy.

I traded a GTX 660 TI.

I would suggest some lithium grease.... WD-40 doesn't work.

haha ill see what they have at the Bike Shop. Do i have to take the Bottom braket off to regrese them. I have never really messed with a REAL BMX Bike..

|

6/13/2013 1:17 PM

I usually just take the cranks off and grease the spindle.... and that makes the noise stop. WD-40 will fuck it up, walmart sells regular grease.. its what i use and its cheap.

Cranks might just be worn out. And your wheel might just need to get trued. Just buy a spoke tool from danscomp or take it to a bike shop. might need new spokes too. idk.

I bought some allen keys From dans comp... and they stripped... it didn't strip my bolts... just the allen key. Do not buy those tools dans comp sells.

Well, you basically get what you pay for tool wise i'd go for craftsman or snap on I wouldn't waste my money on cheap tools. Truing is what you do to the wheel to make it straight. You could probably do it your self just watch how-to videos. Most bikes shops kinda try to rip you off.

you can take your tires and the rim strip off and use a flathead screw driver on the head of the nipples to true your wheels
