What in the bmx industry dissapoints you? Not completely serious, but little, stupid things. Like the fact that Machetes, the best all around tire I've ridden, doesn't last worth a crap. So basically, product pet peeves. (Long sigh for pathetic first world problems)

I heard they changed the formula or whatever to make the tire last longer. I dont like that the Hawk tires slip if you carve too much in slippery concrete stuff

Fit FAF 2.25's never being in stock when I wanna order some. The last 3 or 4 times I tried ordering them through my shop, they've been out of stock & I had to settle for FAF-K 2.25's on Albes or Danscomp which are much more expensive.

I don't know, but I'm never riding any Demolition tires ever again; not worth it. First pair of Momentums had craploads of problems.. Casing splitting, really bad stretch marks, bead splitting, obviously wearing out too quick and being too thin, causing many flats. Machete's were only better for the fact that they didn't blow up on me, but I honestly took it up the same way I did with the Momentums. One of them blew up with a slime tube I had only at like 90 PSI on a fairly warm day, not even close to hot.

I do this with my regular cheapo walmart tubes as well. Works great! Lol. Have yet to get a flat in over a year, even riding thru thorns(didn't see them until after) with a street tire in back

Eastern making things with wild designs while im looking for things like the Compressor which is just a slimmed down genericish looking stem with their logo (i like to buy slightly different parts than everyone else but still don't care for wild cutouts)

My FAFs don't squeak as much anymore.

Retarded tire weights

Idk

I f****** hate how fast the odi troy lee designs grips wear down ive been through 5 pairs in the last 1 and 1/2 years but i continue to buy them because i love the way they feel. Litterally after a few weeks of riding they get shredded but its worth it

Or how the maxxis torch tires on my race bike are absolute S*** AT NOT EXPLODING. Haha i love the grip for racing and doing sprints and how fast rolling they are but ive already put a hole through 2 of em. One got a hole in the tread the others sidewall blew at my trails. I guess ill go back to the good ole dths. Best tires evarrr

When we order the mixed box of grips for the shop, they send a ton of decent grips in tan and brown/red and like 2 pairs of black grips that are crap.

Thought of another one, the fact that Animal still doesn't make that perfect all around tire.

DSG and chromo guards specific for gsport hubs that replaces a spacer or part of the driver so we don't have to stretch the dropouts.

I mean, the glh is pretty much as close as you can get. Perfect for street and park, works for trails.

My Momentums lasted 2+ years and I got another set cheap, and am at about a year on that set now, no issues. tongue


My issue is all the stupid kids bashing others' setups or styles. Seriously. It's a bike. Ride what works, and shut up about others.
