Stop making your chain so tight. That's the only thing that's ever blown my bearings, so I'm assuming that's what you're doing. That or not cleaning/regreasing them.

|

7/26/2013 12:19 PM

I never run my chain super tight, and clean and regrease my hub 2-3 times a month because i ride alot. Your argument is irrelevant lol. I take care of my bike extremely well. I just have bad luck with hubs :/

I pretty much only ride street to but never grind haha. I have never broke a hub. The only parts I've broke are a frame, two pairs of bars and cranks ha.

Learning to grind and airing to flat did most of it... Transitioning from park to street did 85% of it lol. Worth it though lol

What's your weight ? Looks like your to heavy for your hubs ? Just kidding dude, I also never broke a hub like Four, allthough I ride a lot of dirt with massive jumps.

THIS! I am 99% sure you will NEVER destroy G-Sport Hubs! The Simian Front is out & the Rear one should be out in the next couple of months which makes me think the Marmoset & Ratchet should go on sale, so you could potentially pick up a bargain!

I have the worst luck with hubs, I killed a ratchet

I want to try the new ones but George is gonna have to suck my cock first, actually if he would grow some balls and do what's right I'd drop everything but until then I will talk shit about him every time


If if I screwed someone over and noticed they were still pissed years latter and it was all because I didn't send them a driver after sending hundreds to other people witch cased there hub to get destroyed I think I'd step up to the plate and send them a free wheel set

I don't think he understood I had no choice to keep riding it that was my way to work

If i were you i would wait until that primo coaster comes out. I have bad luck with sprocket warping so i kinda know what you're going through but obviously hubs are a lot more expensive than a sprocket. Until then just buy bearings. i hope the primo coaster is good because my remix isnt so great but i think primo knows they kinda messed up on the remix so i have faith.

I dont say stupid things, just no one knows what im talking about.

I would bet you slightly bend your axle, and that is why the non-drive goes.

It puts a tremendous side load into the bearings, putting pressure in spots they aren't designed to handle, and they fail.

Do you land hard into grinds or slam pegs down a lot?

Do you do pogos and rockets?

I am pretty smooth with grinds normally, but i grind ALOT. And i dont do pogos or rockets. i think what blew the non drive of my coaster was learning 180 grinds. The driver blew out pedalling down the street, heard a loud pop and alot of smaller pops, so i went home and tore it apart
