This thread could flop but I feel like it’s always a good time when you buy/trade/receive parts for the steed. Maybe we can share the excitement that comes with new goodies. smile

Today I bought a used wheel from a friend. Black Gsport Ribcage laced with stainless spokes/nipples to a Black Profile Mini. Absolutely over the moon that I at last have a Profile component! Just the other day in some other thread I mentioned I’d never afford one and my how the tables have turned. It’ll go perfect with my front Ribcage wheel of the exact same color coordination. Stoked!

Just bought my first ever new frame about a week ago and it feels amazing, I've only ever had old worn out second hand frames in the 5 years I've been riding so I was more than stoked to buy this beauty

Picked up this z coaster, prolly selling it since I'm too lazy to build the wheel Photo

Last parts I got were these tanwalls. Cranks and eventually a seat are my next replacements/upgrades.

Just picked up a new North East Bad Boys silly goose sprocket, it showed up last night. It’s a 33 tooth! Going riding tomorrow at the local indoor park, going to be interesting to see how this sprocket feels. Photo

I wouldnt consider this a NEW part but it looks new. I rawed out my old complete bike frame just because i was tired of the dull grey it had. The clear coar was worn, it just looked terrible and this really freshened it up. I havent taken pictures of the bike back together, just got it together last night.

We received some new parts for my son's Fly Supernova 18 yesterday. The trebol tires that came on it were smooth from the start and now that we are spending some time on skatelite they are just too slick. They gotta go. And his grips were starting to come apart.

Just showed up. Seat and stem are brand new. Sprocket and seat post came off eBay used but damn near perfect condition.

That's awesome, it's super nice to see that there are so many more 18" aftermarket stuff available instead of just stock 18" Kenda tires, haha.

Here’s a better shot of the new sprocket. Also just got new Fly brakes. Been slowly rebuilding the Steadfast this winter. Have new wheels being built, just waiting for what has been an eternity for the front hub to show up. Photo

You caught me in the middle of a winter overhaul with this post hah. Slapped on some Hammerheads. Picked up an Odin stem from Droogskull and found matching bar-ends. Also copped this chrome R32 from HardBMX_Tim, pretty well-used but cheap enough. Decided to go back to a longer offset, 25mm feels bumpy.

My bike has like 3 different shades of green and I'm adding 3 different shades of... rose, I guess? Plus the chrome and gold, it's gunna pop I'm telling y'all.

Also got more goodies coming in tomorrow or Friday.

Received a new backwheel a few days ago: a BSD Revolution hub, laced to a GSport Ribcage rim.

I've never ridden a freecoaster, and hated the slack when I tried it on other people's bikes.
Rode this wheel for the first time this morning, and I have to say I surprisingly enjoyed it so far. The slack is minimal, and I love the feeling of not having to care about backpedaling to disengage the wheel, it's always ready to fakie. The hub never engaged by accident or anything, really pleased with it for the moment.

I was scared running it would make me regress on certain things, mostly mentally, but I did everything I wanted in that session no problem, so I'm glad. Fakies with freecoasters are definitely weird though, I had a hard time rolling straight in that first session.

What surprises me is how silent the hub is. It has pawls that click like a normal cassette when rolling forward, but the sound is really really soft. I can barely hear the clicks when rolling. I actually like it, it basically makes no sound like a freecoaster yet still has really good engagement.

My other backwheel is a Profile Elite, so it will take me a while to get used to that BSD hub. They say the engagement is instant, but it's most definitely not when you're used to a profile hub. There's a good 1/8 crank of slack I would say, which is immensly better than a normal freecoaster, but still quite noticeable. I also have a hard time gauging my speed now, because I don't hear the driver's pitch going up or down anymore.

I did a Mario 1-up mushroom on the headtube of a frame once. There was a base coat of white, I hand painted over it (with model car paint) and clear coated it.

I sadly cannot find my decent photos of it, so here is one where I had painted the frame black but left the 1-up. This was from about 2012 or so
