I'M IN A BIT OF A JIFFY!

I'm going to buy Alienation Deviant in Chrome, And then later get two silver spoke sets for rear wheel and front wheel and have my wheel sets complete.

But I'm also going to purchase a Powerblock for rear to match my front, and Fly Zapata female brake pads cause my odyssey pads dig into my ankles during footjams....


But the female axle kit for cult match just came out, Should i grab cult match axle kit and forget about the powerblock?
Thing is i really need a new tire, but whenever i tailwhip i get my axles tearing up my shoes.

Opinions anyone?????

When i tailwhip sometimes, i try and go for the pedal too soon, and instead of going to the pedal cause the bike comes up short, my foot hits the seat stays and slides down to my rear axle, and cause it happens really fast it smashes into my shoe.

Get the axle, it's more of a need. Or you could be smart and cut the axle down since those axles are so damn long. My mix axle is so rediculous.

get the tyre, that way you'll force yourself to get better at finding your pedals for tail whips.

I have odyssey slim by four's, they are a male brake axle and unlike most brake pads that are short... They stick out like dogs balls, they slam into my ankle bone when I put my weight into the transition, them when I land it scrapes aside my ankle bone.

I wear 3 pairs of socks when I ride now, even then if still hurts, I have to wear midtop shoes and swap shoes each time I ride doing jams...

They also stab my ankle bone during 360's, especially flat 360s

You are the only one with any of these issues. Learn to ride

I seek progression, not perfection.

Don't make me laugh... You have almost 8k posts...
Maybe you should get out and 'learn' how to ride?
I'm sorry that I ride differently to other people?
And yes, a lot of people have problems with brake pad bolts
And yes people do hurt themselves on super long axles.

Get the fuck out mate.

I've been riding for 14 years, and have never heard of the brake pad bolt digging into anything until you brought it up. And yes, I have been all over the states riding, met literally hundreds of riders (if not more), and seen tons of different styles of riding.

For fucks sake, WE ALL RIDE at different skill levels. Some of us spend more time online. I have over 10,000 posts, does that mean I can't ride? No. It means I post a few times each day. I used to spend hours on the site when I was hurt or working and it was slow. The amount of posts someone has literally has nothing to do with how much someone rides. I hit 8,000 posts in like a year, while working full time AND riding 30+ hours a week.

I am sick of seeing when someone suggests ANYTHING, the first comment is something like "I bet you can't ride".

"I snapped my brake cable last night"

"I bet you can't ride cause you have 34839 posts on a site dedicated to riding"

"Fuck you, you can't ride, pussy"

Really?

Really?

you do know he's the one who told ME to learn to ride? i've been riding for 8 years, and i've always had a problem with my rear axle and brake bolts, that's why i took my brakes off for 5 years, because they kept digging into my ankles when i land, and when i try 360's flat, my legs momentum uses the seat stays to spin the rear end around, where my bolts stick out... i can take a picture if you like??? they stick out super super far.


And i have had a few people tell me that they had that issue with odyssey evo II brake pads, they are called slim by four, look them up, they dig into your ankles in rotations, i don't know how i do it but i do...

Besides the fact that i asked a simple opinionated question and get told to 'Learn How To Ride'

Figures... Doesn't matter now anyway, Getting Deviant, Even though people have a massive fucking cry about non-matching rims? fucking stupid people.

He meant learn to ride as in learn to not do that, but you had to get all butthurt over it and take it too seriously.

Didn't answer my question. Sure, Brake Pad Spindles can get in the way, but how can it happen when the whole of your foot is on the other side of the Bike, and your other foot doesn't do anything?

I'm left foot forward, footjam with the left, correct?
When I pop OUT of the footjam, you push you back foot up so you don't land with vertical cranks, instead to land horizontal, when I push my backfoot up, my ankle bone pushes into the brake pad nut, they stick out pretty far, around 1CM out from the seat stay poles.

And with the Tailwhips, I am still working them out properly and sometimes I just loose them and when I bail I push the bike with my arms away from me because I don't have shin guards, and when I do that, sometimes I land on the seat stays and slide down to the axle, and the cult match has a massively long axle... I can even show you a picture of the brake pad nut and my seat stays with my shoe rubber on them. And the hole in my old shoes from the axle, and the ankle bruises from the brake pad nut.


You're all talking shit when you don't have this problem, but you would realize how annoying it is trying to progress and constantly getting your ankle fucked up by something so stupid, the fly Zapatas are wayyyyy shorter than the slim by fours, so I'm going to get them when I get my tire, after my deviant. And stop crying about mismatching wheels? It's sad lol, personal preferences,

Other than that, thanks for the unconventional help? Lol....

Just to clarify, it's the BOLT, not the pads.

The bolt that holds the pad to the brake arms, sticks out past the frame

i thought of doing that but the axle rod for the bolt to screw on to has only like 3/4MM hole for my allen key to fit into, i wanted to get just a normal nut istead of a bolt type thing, but the axle rod still sticks out far, cause it's physically attatched to the brake pad (the rod) and a female bolt will screw really close to the brake arm slot...

I even tried to shorten my chain so my wheel slammed so i could move the brake pads upwards... but i couldn't, chain wouldn't go on.


But.... if i was to cut down the bolt or axles of my bike, id need the machinery to do it, i don't even have a hack saw lol
