I have no idea why the fuck the other thread got locked, but here we go again...


Ordered yet another bearing for my KHE hub.  Getting closer to just buying a Nankai and putting myself out of freecoaster misery.

I rebuilt my LTF frame.  I took it apart for the sake of changing it but I wasnt too happy with the CW.  To be honest, I think the LTF is the best frame i've ever owned.

Got a tube, put a ruben tire on, put the chain on, put a rear peg on, and now I'm just waiting for my forks, stem, and brakes to come into my local shop.  Had a moment of freaking out because I was sure the rear end of my new steadfast was twisted, rear wheel was sitting all jacked up, really off center.  Then I realized that there was just an extra spacer sitting against the cone nut throwing it off.  It's been storming like crazy every day here so I guess it's ok that my parts aren't in yet.  Just seeing my new bike half built is driving me crazy though.

Thats pretty wack. Is the tyre still inflated?

I had a friend ride the city with me once, and after about three hours we noticed a big nail in his tyre. Entered through the sidewall (wtf!?) and out through the tread. He kept riding it. Slime tubes, apparently awesome.

Hell no, I stopped because I heard it and felt something and then kept riding since it hadn't started yet, but then it all blew out in one loud blow. Figure the tire is still good maybe with a little duct tape on the inside where the holes are?

Wasn't my bike, it was a friends bike he just bought used.  I did a lot of work on it tonight.  I installed my old Odyssey Evolver brake and Tech 77 lever with a new 1664 cable.  Then I cleaned and re greased anything that was dirty or dry such as the cranks, bb, and headset. After that I trued the wheels and tightened, cleaned, and lubed the chain.

I'm really enjoying working on bikes lately because I can't ride due to injury.  Other than rolling down the street with both wheels safely on the ground of course.

Picked my stem up from the bike shop while waiting for the other things just so I could ride it around.  Got bored and went to the local bmx track but it was in horrible shape because it's off season and all the storms we've had.  Still had a blast just cruising and pumping around.  There was a cute 30-something year old there riding her mountain bike, was "really interested in bmx, I want to start riding but need someone to help me."  Let her cruise my bike around the track, got the digits.  I'm leaving town in a week but I'm going to try and hook it up at least once.

edit: got bored just going around since it was so rough and started hipping that first asphalt berm into the grass.  It was super sketchy without brakes, for me at least, never rode brakeless.

Changed my brake pads. Formula K18 pads don't last at all, I think they're just too small for riding DH with. The Avid front pads still have some life left in them but this is the 2nd set of Formulas that has gone this way in just under a month. And I brake more with the front if anything.

Steel one off a complete. Is probably about a year old though, I've been doing lots of high speed uprails/upledges lately though, which I can't imagine would help, strengthwise.

Just had a nightride, missing a lovely chunk of finger trying to peg coping in the dark.

scratched some flaky paint off my half-ass raw'd bars and fork, then i sat and stared at it for a while trying to plan other stuff to do to my bike.

1. finish stripping and clearcoat my fork & bars
2. make a spoke straddle setup
3. modify my avid cable hanger so the cable sits in place better
4. take 1/4 inch off my bars on each side
5. possibly strip my profile cranks and clearcoat

got a flat in my front at the skatepark.
fixed it then noticed a thorn in my rear tire.

Id like to note that when i checked my microknobbie front after the flat, it had about 6 small goatheads in it, but only one actually went through. pretty thornproof for such a weight weenie tire, definatly doesnt get as many flats as the khe

crashed highspeed into some chick whose forehead was as tall as my chin, chin as short as my collar and her bite at my neck

hit so hard the back my head hurts

woke up to a flat this morning. fixed it along with 2 other popped tubes.

rode the fixie to sims metals to pick up some cash. usually i ride on the wrong side of the street passing by, but since i wasnt i decided to just ride up to the front... instant flat tire. got my cash, walked across to the street to an autoshop and fixed my tire with a glueless patch i had in my pocket

probably shouldnt be using some racing slick as a regular commuting tire, eh?
got it for 3 bux at the flea market tho :D

Noticed it had a slow leak. Rode it anyway. Pedalled to my shop, picked up some stuff.

Had a flat session then pedalled off to pick up a back wheel for commuter bike.

Cruised home then headed to my local park - there was a roller blade comp on. Got a lift with a friend and jumped a few box jumps at another park.

Had dinner, then rode home. Right before my house, there was a BMW mashing wrong way down the street trying to get the green arrow, missed the cunt by inches, scared the shit out of me.

It's finally cooling down so I decided to go take my bike out and go for chill night session. Then, 15 minutes into it, my right foot slipped off the pedal and I took it to the shin, badly. This is the last time I'm riding without shin guards.

I had been getting really irritated with my Evo II's as they were super loose on the mounts. The bushings wore out after a month of use.
So I mounted up the ol' Hombres that I had modified to clear 25-9 years ago.
I also bent and reshaped my lever to sit flatter and closer to the bars. I wanted to get rid of the box wrench marks so I spent some time with a file, some sand paper and a bit of polish.

riding & scouting for spots: scramhyphy and i found a couple 14" high ledges with big wide angle iron wrapped around the top edges, and it's at a really slight downhill so it's a fun fast ledge. we had to wax it a bit and scrape some rust off and rewax a little, but it's ideal for a little fuckaround confidence building ledge. hopefully i'll get more confident at high speed grinds, since it slides effortlessly

maintenance stuff: i loosened the chain a tiny bit so that it wouldn't creak, and then by the end of my 4 hour ride my axle had crawled backwards a couple millimeters and the chain was tight again. i''ll fix it and not just halfass it before the next time i ride.

I stripped my LX cranks in prep for polishing for my new Pompetamine.

I had a couple local kids roll up while I was blasting Tom Petty in the garage and need some help. I ended up setting up a 12 year old with a new Monolever, Snafu dual upper, GTX, dual lowers, Evo II's, Eclat pads, a Ti Profile Imperial, 2 Aitken red walls, Eclat bb and some twisted PC's. The kid is a big kid but rides all the time and gets heckled alot by the older guys/skaters at the park so I wanted to give him a confidence boost. I felt good about getting him going...and then his mom gave me couple bucks. That kid could not stop giggling about how excited he was. It was a good day.

fixed a broke spoke on each wheel when i noticed a third spoke that was already cracked halfway through and had to buy another one.
I hate lacing up glands

also put on a new rimstrips on both wheels to replace all the ducttape/old tube rimstrips ive had forever (heavy as shit when i took it off and weighed it)
and when i reinstall my rear tire (same tube) it went flat after an hour of driving...
put in a new tube pumped it up, rode it about 10 ft and then PSSSSHSHHHHHHHHH!!!! a hole on the rimstrip side of the  rear tube, wth???
replace that tube, go on this 15 mile group ride and at the furthest point while im just pedaling along, my  front tube explodes, what the fuck

also got tirelevers and 2 patchkits from a pinata, that was dope

thanks but just saw wire bead fafs are now at 30 a pop here so too much, are shadow tires any good?


I really liked my shadow tire when I had it.  I only got cause it was on sale at the shop and needed a tire in a pinch.  It was a 1.9 Undertaker I believe.

Super grippy.  Wore out fast but I got it cheap.  Would buy their tires again.

to be honest the tool is very convenient but i like to use ratchets bc im lazy so thats the only down fall otherwise i will grow to love just carrying around one tool!


as for the tires thats how it came and the front is a 2.35 while the back is a 2.25... i may swap them soon and see the results. either way i hate the dual giant tires i prefer 2.25 front and like a 2.1 back but if the bike came with that it wouldve been perfect

Stripped down and rebuilt my rear brake today, had to replace the pistons as the old ones were stuck and crumbly. Managed to get it working well in just one bleed attempt, normally takes me about 3 goes before it feels solid, though avids are always a bit spongey.

I made an 11t cog/driver for my King hub. The stock lock-ring is designed to work with a 12t cog at the smallest so I had to turn it down. I don't have access to a lathe so... I built a ghetto jig to mount up on my drill press and used a file to take the material down.

Widened to 14mm and deepened my axle slots on my 04 ody flat fork so I could run this brand new 14mm 36 spoke Hoffman wheel I have had laying around for a year. Surprisingly, I didn't notice a weight difference. My front end finally feels solid again. It is amazing what a new front wheel does for the feel of a bike.

Thanks man. The lockring was fun. It's the first time I used my drill press as a lathe. I just rounded out the edges by hand after taking material off. It turned out alright.
No one makes an 11t singlespeed cog that I was able to find. 12t is the lowest.
I know I'm running on less material but I'm going to end up running a 3/32" chain on this bike anyway so it should be alright. I'm hoping this 11t cog won't be on there for too long...

I got my new frame n fork so I built my bike up. The 74.5 feels a little more slack than the 75 I've been running for the past 5 years. My chain had some hideous tight spots so I dw40'd the thing and it's pretty fucking fresh now!

Anyone know if there are any halflink solutions to the collapse. The plates are pretty thick so the normal half link just gets crushed.

Post by: Austin Tasseltine on December 13, 2011, 08:54:26 AM
i use a halflink from a cheap ybn halflink chain in my collapse. i thought it would be total shit (the chain was in my box of spare shit cos it kept breaking when i ran it) and resisted using one for ages, but it lasted about a year before it broke like a week ago.
find someone with a spare one? a shadow link might do the trick as well

took a crossbar to the chest. but i have never actually ridden a park before so i was proud of what i could do. i'm pretty sure i would have more balls if i was riding wider quarters and not so tight park setups. I also managed to get some balls and throw dem bars a little more confidently now. hoping the next time i ride i can go a little faster and throw em a little higher. also this was all done on a lower frame and high bars which i have never been able to do ever unless i was on a higher standing frame and low bars so i'm really happy with what i was doing on the setup i am on right now.

Sliced open a $45 odyssey folding tire.  Patched the slice as it was only a centimeter long.  Then as soon as I inflated it, there was a massive bubble inches from the slice. Not psyched. So bought a Duo tire since it was the only tire they had in all black at the park's shop.

i first cracked them while doing a 18-stair, they just broke when i did about 2m (80 inches or somethin) drop. it was quite a narrow place to land, so i tried it 3 times. first time my foot blew off the pedal, second time i drove into a wall, third time would have been perfect, when suddenly there was a loud boom and i saw my pedal flying around busting sparks and sh*t. i luckily didn't get hurt or anything. oh and they were the v2's.

also recieved my royal v2's today so luckily i can ride again! stoked!

installation error, yea right.

i think those pedals are really nice, they are magnesium, sealed bearings, light, and if you put on the long pins you cant slip pedals very easily, i haven't got a shinner in like 6 months, maybe you had the short pins? also, i got them for like 15$ so i'm happy. i slipped pedals because of the impact, im pretty sure that would have happened even i had twice the pins.

Had to take a file and pick thing to carve out a bunch of paint and wax from my pedal after finding a good street ledge to do un-lucky grinds on and doing a ton of them.

Also just gorilla glued my pivotal bolt hole rubber thing back onto my seat, hopefully it stays in place next ride.

It has the same seat tube that they use on the 125R frames. So you have to use a 27mm post, but it still uses a 28.6mm (1-1/8") seat clamp.

I picked this up earlier this year in a trade deal. It was in rough shape (a few layers of paint, dents, brake mounts cut-off, etc.) So I sent it to Standard and had the mounts replaced, then my brother-in-law fixed some dents and painted it the shop he works at.

Original color, Ford Dark Highland Green.

to tell you the truth i'm not picky. i just have a problem. i want to try too much shit when i should just say no and save my money for the shit i want. but really i can ride any frame and get used to it i just don't want to. parts are my issue but the two things that i noticed were holding my back have been changed so now it's just time for a fresh frame. I really wanted a Deathrow or V2 deathrow but that MAC is looking great. I also am pretty partial to the Ivy5 since i liked my ivy3. I'll see when i'm able to actually afford a new frame. when i come close something always seems to need my bike money more than my bike.

Why are some people acting like $40 for that guard is so insane? Normal aluminum guards are $25, United had some alum guard with a steel insert for $35 even. I think my old Mutiny guard with the steel piece was like $30... so for a 100% heat treated 4130 guard, $40 doesn't seem unreasonable. As long as it isn't made too thin, it should more than make up for the cost difference in longevity.

I bought an entire bicycle, then went to tenpack and got some pedals and stickers and other free crap.
Some of you are aware that a few months ago I went to the hospital in an ambulance after breaking my ankle riding by myself.  Within hours of the parameds locking my bike up to the closest rack it was already stolen.  So needless to say it feels really great to have a bike, even though I still can't physically ride it.
A bunch of my bmxfu homies got all their spare parts together and were able to give me a really good deal.  So thanks to the FU and Orb's Garage I'm rolling again.

I've got some black pedals, going to strip the chain/stem/headset and I think it'll be good.  I'll do a bikecheck once all that stuff is done.

The compounds were $48 +shipping I believe. I got the all plastic Ezra pedals for $20. And the ones that are basically diety compounds are $30.

Well then guess thats why I grabbed my FBM second hand.

See, there is no description on dan's, & just now there is a picture. So if it is true 4130 & heat treated that explains it. I just figured it was mild steel.

Yep, heat treated 4130.  It should last a lot longer than an aluminum guard IMO.

HMMMMM.....

I'll have to look into these.  I've been wanting some wider pedals for my MTB but I'm on a tight budget.

EDIT: And for the record, while I usually try to support my LBS I cannot get over the ridiculous markup on pedals.  I will never pay full price for a new set of nice pedals... so if I can save on them I will.

I don't know if the actual materials are different but $30 is awesome no matter what. And I was going to spend my money at the shop for some pedals but everything was $20+ so I had to pass.

Yeah, good price for what look like identical pedals.  I'd also be throwing them on my 6" FR bike so it's not like they'd be seeing huge impact forces (as opposed to a bmx bike).  I would be concerned about rock strikes ripping out the pins but I figure that will happen to any pedal.

Sputnic Stratocaster v2a, bought it for 50$ almost exactly 3 years ago. She served me well, hoping to have her welded then a gusset put over the crack. As for how it happened im clueless, heard some creaking to find that as the culprit.

i laced up a chrome gsport ribcage rim with new spokes. i also installed new hub bearings along with a gdh cromo axle and a shim pack. the last time i replaced my driver i didn't know i had to push the pawls inward as i was tightening the cone nuts so it slightly damaged each of the spots where the springs and pawls go. i cleaned that up though with some light sanding and bent each spring inward a tiny bit to make installation easier. it ended up a little bit quieter too, but it still has solid engagement. i switched from the stock old style 114mm profile axle to the new 110mm in hopes of getting my s&m cymbal hubguard to fit properly. i can't wait for winter to give me a break so i can try it all out.

if you keep getting flat's, wrap the inside of the tire with 2 or more layers of thick duct tape. It really works good, ran a bald khe street for a year like that with no flats at all and my driveway is about 500 meters long with a thorn bush next to it....good stuff

It seems to be more pinch flats than anything so I'm not sure duct is the answer.

Rock and roll would be translated from the skateboarding as a sprocket to 180 back in.  If you rolled up and landed on your sprocket, then went fakie and did the revert.........  sprocket chunk to revert?

I rode a bike with 48's the other day.  The stiffer wheels made it worth the extra bit of weight you add, in my opinion.  It didn't seem crazy heavy or un ridable by any means.

It's only a front hub that I was looking for off someone else. The only ones that seem to be  possible to find would be gsports and that's still pretty difficult. If you had a ratchet or v3 cassette in 48 I'd happily snap it up once I get a bit of money.

i dont know why people ever stopped running 48s, oh yes thats right when everyone went all pussy about the weight of their bikes a few years back. glad thats over and done with, i hope 48s start to get popular again so companys start selling them again and theres more choice. i know so many people who are fed up with 36s, especially on the back.
yes, some people are fine with 36s but there are plenty of other people who just trash them

48h rear is pure win. 36h is alright on the front to be honest.

On a similar wheel-related note...just got hold of a Proper Micro-lite to replace my fucked seventies hub...how does Bikeguide rate these hubs???

yeah ive been running a 36 in the front for a couple of years now, only time i had problems was once a few spokes broke, more broke soon after. ive been running my current hub and spokes for like a year, and grinding both sides witout guards and not broken any spokes yet.
both my rear 48s are a bit thrashed though atm, each missing a few spokes but still straight enough. i need to buy some more in 184 to patch them up

I would have posted this lastnight but I passed out as soon as I as down on the couch.

I haven't been riding much at all for the past year and a half. Went to the skate park yesterday. Fuck it felt good to know I don't suck as bad as I thought I would. My balls are no where near as big as they were but fuck I impressed my self.

I am sore as fuck though, and I love it. I'm sure I'm equally as sore from falling as I am from riding.

808

1. The penal code for disturbing the peace. Refers to the sound of bass from stereos.


2. Refering to an analogue synthesiser called a Roland TR-808 used in many 80's tunes.


3. At times a reference to Hawaii's area code: 808.

I break pivotal bases like crazy because I tailwhip like shit so I used the Animal Bikes padding and cover on an Odyssey Senior2 base which has beefed up plastic braces so it's tough enough to handle my sucktitude..

If I could get it recovered I'd try to get new foam and strip the whole thing down and clean it before sending it off because sending you an ass sweat harvest is pretty fucked up.

Umm been running the burns bars since they came out in Australia. So guessing since August or so. Saying that I prob ride one or twice a week and I'm not ultra hard rider pretty much nibbling. But I've talked to Jamie mauri ex bonedeth and jay Wilson current bonedeth and they have t had any drama's, yes they where/are sponno'd so might be biased info. I've bent the left side of the bars back. I can't feel it but can see it very easily

I switched to an OG solid stem that was closed up. Did the penny trick to get it on my steer tube and tightened it until tight. Did a 360 over a roller when I got to the park and rode away sideways while my bars were pointing straight ahead. Stem wasn't actually tight at all.

I made it feeble up a medium large ledge to 180.

on saturday i cut my new OSS bars about 3/4 on each side, cleaned up the holes on the faceplate of the redneck LT stem i just got, slapped the rear brake together, changed the G SPORT logo on my rear rim to G SPOT, started sanding and polishing some rough spots on my tech 77 lever from when i bent it with a wrench, put my odyssey fork on to match the chrome OSS bars, and did a couple peg stalls on a 4 foot quarter. then i hit this super fun sidewalk curb-cut that has a big slanted rock at the end to make it a super curb-cut, got sent kinda weird and looped out and hit the concrete right ass cheek first. i landed and yelled YEAH BUDDY


edit: i'm going out right now to get pictures of the curb-cut with the rock, it's awesome and will help validate my story.

Looked at it and decided I need to get a new rear wheel cause I'm running on 32 spokes now and it doesn't even spin

Replaced 4-5 spokes in my rear wheel, pulled out my driver to find the circlip in the back isn't getting any less bent then laughed at how blown my BB is.

Are there a lot of front brake users on the board?  I was just thinking today that I needed to see if there is a "riders with glasses" appreciation thread as well as a list of members on the board who use front brakes.  I know Paranoidmexican gets down as well.  And mattchu too!

had to use pliers and 2 crescent wrenches to get the existing hardware and axle washers on my front hub since the soft steel washers crushed over time into the axle. then i realized my axle is starting to bend so i'm stoked on that. i've never done much axle destroying in the past, so i'm kinda glad to be pushing myself harder. i just installed 2 shadow front hubguards that fit pretty well, so now i should be putting that front axle through even more shit pretty soon. glad to have some spares though, gotta love those SBC axles.

Probably repeat again when it starts rusting a bit

Superstar Sweet Sweeps.  I cut abour a half an inch off the fork, so being that these bars are about .85 inches taller.  I really only raised my front end a little more than a quarter of an inch.  It feels pretty good, though.  Probably about perfect for me since I love tall bars.

Became the biggest hypocrite ever, the paint on my Fly Tierra Grande bars started flaking away around the weld on the right side of the crossbar which is always a red flag to me that my bars are about to crack.. so I told this kid what was up with them and he said "I'll trade you my S&M Perfect 10's for your bars and some cash".. I rode em for about 30 minutes and finalized the deal.

They look stupid as fuck, but all my front wheel tricks became way easier and I can still hop bar em so screw it. I'm a hypocrite, suck it.

I stripped the paint off of my Fed 4pc bars. They were OxBlood red with sparkles. Now they are raw... with sparkles. The glitter or what ever the fuck didn't come off. Not sure if I like it, but I do think it's pretty funny.

I recently bought a lathe and decided to make a few things for my tree hubs.
Firstly I made a 7075 T6 axle. I'm not going to use pegs on it

I made an Eclat Pulse driver suit the tree hub.

I machined down the internal shoulder for clearance in the hub along with the outer face and replaced the bushings

4 flats in half an hour

wandering around the backstreets of SF we found this area
(http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/9043/120401002.jpg)
which also had giant pools of glass

got a giant shard in the microknobbie and put in a new tube and threw a fit faf in the front
then my rear wheel started feeling lumpy and before i could even stop and look down at it, my tioga powerblock sidewall blows out. so i put in a fit faf and another tube in the rear.
rear tube patch job blows a leak.
put in another rear tube and super sketchy old patch job that has been holding for a while... stops holding
and as of right now i have a big goathead in my front tire but its still holding air :/

my bike also feels heavy as hell with those fafs, fml, my arms are dead

bluee, Did the glass fuck up your Microknobby beyond repair? I ran over I stick with thorns the size of pencils on it with my Microknobby. I have a nice cut in my tire, but with a cardboard boot in it, the slit is no bigger than a popsicle stick. It has been going fine for a few months now and hasn't gotten any bigger.

Decided to check what needs sorting as Ive only ridden proper twice this year.

Back wheel is 36 down to 28 spoke (snapped another last week) when I went to check realized most are on the same side, one after another.

Going to have to take the whole thing off and pretty much rebuild it.
What a pain in the ass.
Straddle cable looks haggered but no one seems to sell them online.

Also regretting buying purple pedals and grips ages ago. I want them black now but im not wasting money on cosmetics.

He said he ran over glass and also had a Goathead in his front tire, he knows where they are coming from. I think he may need to be careful, I have almost the same tire set up as him(but a KHE street), I almost pay too much attention as what is on the ground in front of me.

i put my older t1 moody/hickerson back together for further testing purposes. i didn't give it a fair enough test the first time i had it built up. i'm too much of a girly man to pry the stays apart far enough for my s&m cymbal guard to work, so i took the pegs off for now while i'm testing it. the frame is in really good condition and i tend to grind like a mongoloid, so i don't wanna wreck the dropouts (or my spokes) and realize i want to sell the frame for a decent amount. now i'm about to go lurk around my apartment and see if i can cut a brake cable off of someone's POS so i can run a rear brake tonight. i think i already robbed the ones off my girlfriend's beach cruiser.

I forgot to say what I did with my bike today... Crammed it into the back of a taxi, listen to the driver rave about how perfect my welds are on the frame, and that the antifreeze green is "the most bitchin' green, goes perfect with the chrome and bare metal". Yanked it out of the taxi.
Rode home and bombed down a pretty large hill on a busy road under construction. I was nervous I was going to get run off the road and into a sign or something. But I then realized I needed to slow down because I am starting to pass the cars. As I was passing one car the guy yelled "I'm going 30, you're hauling ass". So I would say I was cooking pretty good in that crammed area.

Fixed my old bike today, the one I sold to a 13 year old shredder. Relaced the wheels, new cranks, bars, and forks on it.

This is what my old LAF turned into. He traded the frame for a Luna that was better suited for his little stature.

^ Id ride it!

Spokes came through! Replaced 8 broken and one that looked like it was on the way out.

I had to guess what I was doing based of what I had done years ago but I think it worked out ok.
Thankfully I chucked a spare tube on the order as low and behold I gave myself a snake bite putting the tire back on (Taking that fucker on and off was the hardest part)

Gave the hub a clean up, sorted the headset and tuned the brake (still needs work but itll do)

It's pretty comfy with the wider bars. We might loose money selling all the parts together rather than seperatly but if it's all just been sitting there why not right?

how much do bulk stainless brake cables (minus housing) cost wholesale these days per piece? i swear when i used to get wholesale prices at my old bike shop job they were around 50 cents or less wholesale if you bought the box of 100, and we charged customers $1.50. i just bought one from a LBS while on my phone and not truly paying attention to the sale and realized it cost $7.75 when i got back home and looked at the receipt. i'll ride down and return it tomorrow and tell the dude i'm going to just pick up a odyssey linear cable that includes housing, tips and ferrules for just $1.50 more. then i'll congratulate him on having the most expensive generic inner brake cables out of all the bike shops i've ever been to.

edit: and while actually working on my bike today i added a half link, and rearranged headset spacers.

Today I took apart my entire drive train and cleaned and regreased/lubed everything.  My bike rides much more smoothly now.  I knew it would feel better, but I didn't think it would be this drastic.  I'm happy with myself.

Rode it for the first time in over a week. Dented a chain stay a tiny bit knocked my left axle out of the droP out catching it on a rail up right on a uprail double peg only small about a wheel height. Had a fair bit of fun on it got better at some rail tricks I have been trying eg rail rides, smiths up and down and tried a few more crooks/derricks. Not on legit rails, bit highier than axle hight but been scared of rails for too long.

Good eye Tom.  Yes, Antigram hub.  Because it actually subtracts grams from your bike the longer you ride it (bad joke).  

Not out yet, but should be sometime this summer.  Sorry to be so vague about release date but that is all I have for now.  You know I won't leave you dudes hanging and will spill the beans on this hub as soon as I can.

I measured my 4pc Federal 20/20s. I thought the 4pc version of the 20/20 were only made in 8" rise? Mine came out to 8.25. My Tree Branches felt a little smaller with I switched them out. I hope I can cut them soon because I like how solid they felt.

And I'm still not sure if I should polish them, or keep the sparkles that was under the original paint.

Edit: I just noticed that I own 3 pairs of bars, and all 3 of they are badass and uncommon. Tree Branches, Federal 4pc 20/20s, and Seshin Chilkos. I love my little handlebar collection.

I just measured my Federals and they also have an 8.25" rise. I also suspect that they are considerably lighter than Federal's specification suggests.

When you do a ton of pedal grinds not many pedals stay super grippy. but actually due to the concave design a lot of the knurling is still used for traction… and Eastern didn't have any when they sent me more propaganda for my biased bicycle so I grabbed what was at my shop

that sounds awesome, we should ride in a few days and check that out. my goal tomorrow is to strip my fork and crank arms. then by the weekend i'll try to get the frame prepped for spraying. then it's time for 4 pegs, a functioning hubguard, and better brake setup. linear cables and i do not get along. i think it's just my superhuman kung fu grip, since i almost broke the housing apart with the first pull of the lever.

not having a $5 front wheel that wobbles so much it hits your forks is amazing!

Grew half a but and tried some high speed bar spins in the grass hahaha. Almost landed one. I really want to not be scared of throwing them. I'm going slam my seat also I threw them better on the Benny than I do with the Marv.
Also to a crack at that gap I spoke of before. Didn't clear the sidewalk but I didn't fall so it's just a matter of shooting off and setting up for this in the short period of time you have coming off the downhill curve. Here's what it looks like.

My 4 yer old Elementary V3 was slipping non-stop so I put on an old front load from my old Fly Barcelona complete from way back in the day, but another spacer under it and flipped it upside down. Looks pretty dumb but actually feels really nice. Bike is looking pretty ghetto but feels great, should snap some shots soon.

Went out for my third ride of the year afterwards and after just a couple 180s and manuals I snapped the chain... Sucks cause there is no good bmx shops near by, especially cause I need a half link. I seem to go through chains faster than fucking grips.

Thanks! I really love how this stem looks, especially when matched with a Tree cap. It could be sitting totally flush if I trim my forks down a little bit. I'm real lazy about that though, so it'll probably stay this way for a while.

Tire ripped away from the wire bead (old Zeppelin) and blew out my new tube :(

Ripped the back wheel off, stripped it down ready for a new tire whenever I get one.
Cranks were creaking aswell so had them off and jigged it about, gave them a clean and moved some spacers about and its all good again.
Took the pegs off just to make it easier to move/shove in the storage space it lives in.

Considered taking the tire off the front and moving it to the back so most of the annoying shit like chain tension and brakes were sorted but changed my mind as sods law id rip the tube or fuck up the tire in the process and be even more stuffed!

Wrangled those Ligera tires onto my camwood. Bike looks 10000000 times better. Might have pics up sometime. But the tires feel amazing for the half hour I rode it.

Slapped a clearance odyssey principle seat on her Ian, put in new headset bearings and made a bottom dust cover out of a folding Koozie. Help prolong the life.
Some Silver trailmixes too.

I rode it! It's been a while, but my leg let me get away with it yesterday...

I also put my freecoaster on so I'd put less stress on my leg (no backpedal/pressure) and took the giant fit bikes sticker off my downtube.

This setup is in my friend's backyard... super tight and tech and nothing is huge.  All the berms are epic.  He is really good at digging berms and bowling out the flat bottoms.  Most of the local pros pass this spot by because there isn't anything bigger than 5'5" lip by 9' gaps.  You can ride here all day and not get tired of it there are so many options.  

To get through the lines without pedaling you really need good bike control to be able to carve deep into berms and pump.  OPTIONS man!!!!

Ohio.  It is fun and there is so much going on packed into a small space that it makes it a challenge.  Really good to hone your skills on.  Pretty much everything can be ridden backwards too.  So you can do loops out and back and pump up to the rolling and start again.  Two main lines both can be linked and each one has about 3 variations.  We have a wallride planned for the step up that will open up another line!

i think it's time for me to start twisting some nipples, odyssey nips that is.

Went out to a trail spot  1.5 miles from where I work... we got a lot of rain today.  I wanted to be able to gauge how well they drain so I know when they are ridable based upon puddle sizes along the road.

So... I noticed a car with a door open pulled over to the edge of the parking lot where the entrance to the trails is (they are on state land behind a shady shopping center and high rise apartments)... a man and a woman were coming out of the brush going back to the car.  Seemed odd... went back the jumps... came back out of the woods 10 minutes later and a she had another business looking dude in the bushes giving him a bj.

Nice a prostitute working within 100 yards of the trails.  Well I guess it is a matter of time before they get shut down now.  They have been running almost 3 years...

Not today, but about a week or so ago I was riding home from the skatepark late at night. Had my flashlight in one hand, and my helmet, and pads in my backpack. I get about half way home to the train tracks. I tighten my grip to avoid eating shit as I go over them. After bouncing over them without crashing, I loosen my grip and begin to shine the flashlight in front of me. The second I loosen my grip, my front wheel dives into Tucson's deepest pothole. Tight grip or not, I was going to end up on the ground. I fly OTB while rolling into the street, I was lucky that the traffic was stopped at the red light. Hit my head pretty good, and banged up my knees and shoulder. I stand up and look for my bike so it doesn't get run over. The fucking thing was still in the pothole like some cartoon shit. I pick the rocks out of my palms and ride the rest of the way home wishing I left my pads and helmet on. But the part that bothers me the most is the rip in my newest jeans.

Just picked the scab on my shoulder and thought I'd share.

today I smashed through 10 miles straight straight straight of 2 lane each way, super narrow, unprotected left-turn 40mph traffic street. probably stopped at a total of two lights and skitched back up to speed at those stops. fucking smashing through traffic is sooooooooooo much funner on a bmx

Trued the back wheel
Jb weld mod on the underside of my Balance Piv seats
filled the dropouts a bit with JB weld on my Fit Mac frame . Still have too file it down too 13.5". Can't stand the wheel shifting, even after reefing the hell out of it with a 2 ft 1/2" breaker bar.

Aggie from Federal hooked up a whole bunch of their new wax to try out. I know its just wax but the thought that went into making this stuff is impressive, the 2 sides for rails and ledges and the fact that it fits in your pocket is neat.

When i tighten it one of the guards is fine but the other acts like a screw and pushes my wheel to the other side, like really bad. It doesn't do it when i put the wheel on backwards though. I would like to keep the knight guards on but don't know what to do. Only things i can think of is dishing the wheel  to the other side or taking my tire off and putting it facing the right way with a backwards wheel. pls help

Fly put that grub screw in to hold the posts in the frame instead of the bolts that go through the posts so the spring cap wouldn't rotate relative to the post, but what stops the springs from making the posts rotate when you release tension on the grub screw? Is it keyed?

Fixed that problem today. I trued my wheel so it's in line now and doesn't hit. Went to ride it then my ratchet skipped, took my wheel off and lubed my driver up. Noticed the helicoil coming out so i clipped the part that i could not push back in but while i did that ,even more helicoil came out so i had to push it in with 2 screwdrivers. My bike feels nice kind of.

My axles always seem to crossthread and its a pain putting on hub guards and shit. I also put a new coat of flat black on my forks and added a 2mm spacer. Shit is rocking right now.

Rode, did barspins, tables, stomped my heel, and kicked the ground making my toe nice and swollen again. It was fun.

Also got a dent in my crossbar on my 4pc'ers. Made me sad for a while. Looking for a cool sticker to cover it up now.

Also missed my front peg while hauling ass to DP the quarter. I caught myself and did a wild cartwheel on accident.

installed a 27t fit sprocket and then worked on my ratchet til i got frustrated. i just got that odyssey webstore ratchet/ribcage deal and since upgrading to a 10t it runs like shit. if i run it with the supplied metal bash washer the driver binds a lot and backpedaling takes more effort. if i run it without the bash washer it skips and the chain wants to rub against the hubshell. halp, i'm trying to go for a ride tonight and it'd be nice to have a smooth hub.

WD stands for water displacer so it is in fact the opposite of a lubricant.  WD40 is helpful in some applications but is for the most part something that doesn't need to be close to a bicycle.

Replaced my headset with an Odyssey one. Took all my stem bolts out and greased them since they were creaking. Feels much better. And put some air in my tires. Then I tried to put my spare bike together, front end is almost new and clean, the drive train is pretty damn sketch. I need to find a cheap back wheel for it.

Rode it more, which is so great after not being able to for a while again. Figured out that my beloved Federal 4pc bars might have to hit the trash can due to over tightening my stem at some point. Sucks, but I'm just happy to be riding my bike enough to find out!

Went to re-spray a few parts black and my back tire has deflated.
Im guessing its the heat? checked the tube and it looks like how it comes out of the packet. Never seen a tube come out like that before.

What are the odds the air has just leaked out totally as I cant see any damage and I crushed t as much as I could underwater (no pump) and didnt get any bubbles..

Annoying as fuck though.

i trued my back wheel so the brakes felt consistent all the way around, adjusted the tension, and roughed up the pads with sandpaper. also i got fed up with the little knob on the end of my tech 77 lever, so i filed it down and smoothed it out with some fine grit sandpaper. now my brake feels and works a shit ton better. also i took off my redneck LT and put my old gouged up redneck XLT after filing down the gouge mark from a couple years ago when i ran into a chainlink fence and got knocked the fuck out. now i want to strip the black off my seatpost to go with the silver stem. i also locked into a manual for almost a half block which is huge to me, since i haven't had much manual control after getting back into bmx. before i quit manuals had always been hard, so this was just some fluke one time deal haha. maybe smooth downhill streets are what's up. it's worth it pedaling back up each time just to coast down and manual.

Neglected it again. Need a new barrel adjuster for gyro plate and some lube for the cables, and there's a creaky cross of spokes in the front wheel.

Also been meaning to go back to 28:9 from 30:9 (actually I was on 27:9 but I broke that sprocket and I only have a 28t) because I live in a hilly area & my legs cane after each ride.

Also been meaning to tension/true rear wheel and put my new front tire on

I'm working with a few other friends to build a free public skills park for local riders to shred, have fun and progress their skills. Most of our stuff right now is elementary skill based but this saturday and sunday I'll have a Cat out to help build the jump lines.

I'm trying to save time to focus on making the most of our time with the rented Cat so I'm building the trick booter at my house.

Right now it sits at 4ft tall with an 8ft radius. I still need to add the top 2ft for a grand total of 6ft. I also need to cross brace it and add the back-half framing.
We'll be launching into a dredge spoil/sand setup for a soft landing to learn tricks into.

I'm building this thing solo in my garage so I tried to do a little "self photography" work with a tripod and point and shoot.

well i went for a swim instead and when i got back to my truck the tires were completely deflated. fuck. i knew i shouldnt have fucked with that tire, now im out a tube as well.

well i checked out the tube and turns out a patch slipped n started leaking. ha! patched it and good to go.

16 patches on this tube :p

He's not going to surface it IIRC... the 2x4's are like the rungs of a ladder bridge in this case.


Yep. Zane's got it. There is no surface. I just rolled it on my BMX bike and it's nice and smooth even with 100psi in the tires.
I'll grab some pics of it completed once I yank it out of the garage to load it up.

Rode her bike to redbox and get a box of reds. bump jumped the parking block in some mocassins. Need to quit smoking, cigarettes. I miss being able to breath. hate the feeling of sluggish hubs. On the cam I just gotta pedals twice and I'm down the block. Hers is non stop pedal to maintain speed.

I rode a whole lot today.

Got home and put this epoxy stuff on 2 of my eccd's; one that ripped off the rails, and the other that has been on for a while. The epoxy stiffened up the rails really well and I am pleased.

Rode a fair bit today with a big crew of mates, fun little street sesh which involed me slamming early ripping my palm open and bleed on/over my bike every obstacle. Popped my front tube, replaced it. Packing up to head home rear tube hissed at me aswell.

Also ordered some custom standard 4 piece strip bars

Dailed in my brakes along with the rest of my bike, went to put my eccd back on with a ghetto demolition railed post and ended up snapping my seat clamp bolt, making my clamp useless, no-one round here has a spare as everyone has integrated. Suppose not missing out on much, weather in England has gone from perfect to shite almost overnight.

I've always been a fan of Marvin Lotterle's bikes back in the day. I came to the realization that I had most of the parts on hand to make a similar build happen so...
I started assembling a "trail" bike. Started off by painting it an Aitken S2i brown, added an Aitken seat and front tire, some King hubs, Thomson stem and post with Zodiac work, custom headset cap. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect 33 tooth sprocket.

Title: What did you do to your bike today? (v2)
Post by: Austin Tasseltine on June 06, 2012, 11:23:26 PM
aha just made the necessary modification but i think i twisted the back end on the frame in the meantime, whoops!

its a v1 fit hawk (that was fucked anyway, dents all over, rewelded tt/ht), federal 9t coaster (with primo dsg which doesnt help the chainline as it pushes the driver inwards a bit), and a 30t mds with extra guard.

hammered the cs in a bit for some extra clearance, chainline is a bit better now at least (hopefully my chain will stop kinking up), but the sprocket still only clears by a gnats cock

i was thinking of buying a new frame soon but i dont know what would be compatible with my favoured sprocket setup besides another sunday (lots of clearance with a wishbone). i really wanted an sta though dammit
Title: What did you do to your bike today? (v2)
Post by: Professor Horatio Hufnagel on June 06, 2012, 11:29:57 PM
If the rear end is tweaked, and the sprocket you are running won't clear then the stays then the maths is a moot point :<

You'll need to measure BB width and dropout-to-teeth on the coaster (probably 68mm & 13mm respectively but confirm it anyway) if you want to work it out anyway

Post by: CHROME_RIMS_YO on June 06, 2012, 11:36:28 PM
since my last post in this thread i've sanded and polished an fsa headset dust cover and a 2mm spacer to go along with my raw xlt redneck i put back on my bike a week or two ago. i just got done disassembling and regreasing my khe reverse v1 from a couple years back that i only used for an hour. while i had it opened up i maxxed out the slack too. then put on a 30t, and a fresh chain and adjusted the brake pads. hopefully it holds up for the next couple hours while i go explore and burn off some extra energy. i used to be able to do little 360 slider hops where i'd basically hop between 180-270ish degrees and just carve the front tire while backpedaling out for a second, it'd be fun to learn those again (minus the backpedaling of course) if i get comfortable with the freecoaster and also get my 180s more consistent haha. sometimes my brain says "do a 180" and my body responds with "hahaha yeah right old man!" and then i slam.

Post by: Austin Tasseltine on June 06, 2012, 11:37:56 PM

I don't think the bolo is for me only because I don't think I want that extreme of offset since 30mm isn't appealing. But I will end up with a fork today and my bike will be rideable.

Started putting the Teddy back together but realized I don't like the way some of the parts look on it. Of course, Empire, Dan's and Albes don't stock all the items I want and I'd prefer not to pay shipping multiple times so the Teddy will sit for another day.

Put new 2.1" A Ross tire on front, and new GTX-S under the stem. Lubed all 5 of my brake cables and greased the ball ends of the cables where they meet the lever, forgot to do the same for the other ends where it sits in the brake arms, greased steerer tube clamp bolts on stem

Removed decorative alloy cones from my front Hazard hub cone nuts so I don't have to remove wheel to adjust them (as I did with the original cone nuts it came with that got wrecked)

New grips yet to come, probably my old 28t to give my knees a rest from 3.33:1, and possibly swapping my old bars back in

Want a new seat post to get seat higher, seat is getting pretty ripped too

Received my left pedal body replacement from empire today. The O-ring that pre loads the thrust bearing thing had been pulled out from doing grinds on my pedal so i had to look for a new one. found exactly what i needed about an hour later. Went down town after that then headed to the skate park.

Sadly the F 25's will probably only ever come in black.  There are enough people buying front brake forks to make them, but not enough people buying them to make multiple colors.

If your pulling the derailleur off the bike there is a super simple way to clean them.
Grab a crock pot from a thrift store on the cheap, fill it with water and a little dish soap, not a lot, just a couple drips. If you have grease cutting dish soap use that, but anything will work. Turn the crock pot on low and drop the derailleur in.

The warm slightly soapy water will make grit and grime that's been caked on for years wipe right off.

I'm too cheap to buy a proper solvent tank for my garage(I've got one at work though if I REALLY need to use on). So I use the crockpot method for small parts. Some parts are too big for the crock pot, so I have a big 10 gallon storage container with concentrated simple green and a fish tank water circulator in it for big part.
Between the two, parts cleaning is super simple and easy.

I've been trying to get all of my bikes setup with the parts I want on them. Naturally there has been a lot of part swapping. Unfortunately I don't have a work bench right now while I rebuild it with extra storage/cabinets.
In the furry and wrench spinning and tossing parts from one bike to another I managed to make it look as though my garage puked cycling.
My weekend will consist of cleaning, organizing and getting this snafu all cleaned up.

The first time it was the actual bolt that snapped because the factory put loctite on the nut. The next few times it was just the nut stripping, To be honest they were probably shitty nuts. Has anyone actually knocked off the built in seat clamp and used a normal one?

Both the levitation and unluc-e grind are front peg and pedal, however the levitation grind is when the back wheel is above the ledge/rail while in an unluc-e it is below the ledge/rail.

Pinch flat.  Fuck my life and putting fly foldings on 7kas is the biggest pain in my ass. I'd rather put primo walls on Alex triple walls in the snow that put on or take off that fucking tire again.

Now i have to spend 5 plus on a fucking cheap tube that I'm probably gonna fuck up.

i bombed a hill, and at the bottom had to hit the brakes hard at a busy stoplight. my brakes goosed and the vibration was so bad that the brake pad came loose and got lodged in the spokes of my rear wheel. it was too jammed to roll, so i started walking it up a slightly mellower street up that same hill a couple blocks away. about halfway up a car rolled by my slowly and yelled OOH IT SUCKS TO BE YOU RIGHT NOW! HA HA HA! before i could yell anything back, they stopped in the middle of the street and put it in park and 2 doors opened up. thinking i was about to get jumped or bikejacked i threw my bike into the bushes behind me, ripped out a loose fat chunk of asphalt from a pothole in front of me and reached for my knife. i had no escape on this long stretch of road with a bike that wouldn't roll and i figured i was gonna have to fight. i yelled YOU WANT MY BIKE, FUCKING TRY TO TAKE IT THEN! and the doors slammed and they sped off around a corner. then i kicked the shit out of my brake until the pad loosened and then booked it home down side streets and alleys.

then i got home, smoked a bowl to feel less murderous and got out everything i need to set up a different pair of brakes since these the fly brake arms i'm running keep slipping with the brake pad fully tightened down. plus the pads were toed in so that the top of the pad had about 2mm of space when the bottom of the pad hit the rim and they still chattered and vibrated loose. i haven't checked my spokes, but i bet i'm gonna need to true the rim where the pad snagged. i figure i'll put my evo2 on, then at least i'll have a functioning brake that won't lock up my rear wheel the same way 2 times in a week leaving me an easy target for grimy ass scumfuck bike thieves.

Idiot moment right off the bat today.
I woke up this morning and headed out the door to go take some measurements for the new bike shop we're starting and see that I've left my new wheel leaning against my truck tire all night right next to the sidewalk.

I rode BattleGround/Vancouver yesterday on my trails/DJ/bike, I didn't want to run the knobby Aitken that was on it in the park so I grabbed the wheel I laced up the other day that had an Aitken street tire on it and swapped them out when I got to BG park.

When I got home, I took the wheel out of my turck, set it down and unloaded the rest of my gear. I was tired, and fell asleep early and clearly forgot the wheel outside. Luckily no one in my neighbor hood decided they needed a brand new Marmoset laced to an Envy front rim with DT Swiss double butted spokes. It sat outside for 14hours, plain as day, and easy grab. Luckily, all my neighbors are old folk who don't have a clue about bike gear and theft is extremely rare.

I'm headed back down to the shop to take shipment of our counters/displays now then it's back home to build up my T1 Ruben!

Try a putting 1.85 Primo Taj tyre on an Alex Supra E..

Better yet, try to take it off with anything other than a hack saw.

If you still have a 1.85" primi Taj tire, I will buy.  Don't even care the condition.

rebuilt my front wheel with a new rim (fcuked rhyno lite to stoeln revolver) and the discount spokes from the odsy store.... smashed around the bowl to help the spokes set in and in the mean time BROKE ANOTHER spoke in the rear... then replaced 4 broke spokes in the rear


when i relaced my marmoset, i fucked up by not keeping the original lace pattern. the outer grind spokes had formed indents in the hub flanges, and if i had repositioned the new outer spokes along the same indents, the spokes would have had less to aluminum to bend around after being smashned by the gland which was smashed by the ledge i was grinding... i dont even comprehend mh text anymore

i also dont like going from
48mm primopro topload stem > 50mm odsy stem
27.5x8 slams > 28x8,25 lumberjacks
feels heavier (even though it should be lighter)
w/ that extra .25in it seriously makes it about 5x as hard to xup, wtf
and that extra reach omfg i cant stand it. i cant explain it but it feels like shit

And by old I mean perfectly fine with full pins, they just look like shit because they're the metallic ones that have started flaking.

Walked out with some odyssey 4x4 bars,longnecks, bunch of shield stickers, another seat to hang on the wall for the end of days and a medium mono lever, her Sunday keeps getting more hideous and I like it!

Covered for the 4pc to challenger trend. Now I just need to get some f25's and new front wheel and left brake lever

Just put a new 29t Lite sprocket on my bike. It was just sitting in a semi-local shop for quite a while until Tree recently bought it back, bored it out to 15/16ths, and then sold it to me. I know its not the coolest thing, but I always thought the old american made ones were the most badass, so I'm pumped on having one on my bike again.

Pulled my busted front end of my bike apart, cleaned the salt water rust out of my headtube and cleaned / regreased my headset bearings..

Drilled out the top cap of some P.O.S. forks with 990's to fit this awesome front brake set up I've barely got to use.
Replaced the cable wire in my Nokon cable.
Set up my front brakes.
Got blisters on two of my left fingers.

Rebuilt my KHE Geisha Lite freecoaster and reduced the slack.. Still need to find my spoke tool to finish that up..

Up next will be cleaning and rebuilding the hubs.. then cleaning out the frame and setting up new cranks..

My bike got completely submerged in some awesome salt water so now I get to tear the bike apart and clean all the rust/bearings/bullshit.

Tinkered with the front brakes and trued my rim a bit.
Re adjusted my headset so it didn't feel like shit.
Built my KHE Geisha lite up to a 48h Hoffman Generator and I'll get to play with that when I sort out my cranks.

Besides that, it's not what I did to my bike but what my bike did to me.. which was give me a peg to the shin while I was wearing shorts so it busted open and bled all over the friggin' place.

Slammed my wheel, noticed it's kinda dumb as I usually don't have chain breaker which is dumb, too. Of course got a flat, switched a new tube on, it exploded at like 30 psi although it was installed correctly, switched tube again to a patched one, the patch is just half on. I'm already mad and frightened of dying from a heart attack before I'm 30.

Fitted some SLX brakes to my DH bike. Not sure on them yet. Lever feel is really nice but they don't seem to have as much power as my old Juicy 5s. Hoping its just the pads that need bedding in. The hoses need trimming and swapping over but I can't be arsed to do that today so maybe tomorrow depending how hung over I'm feeling.

Tore it down, rawed and re painted the frame, got some new wheels, brakes, cable, and chain, cleaned eveything else, waiting for the paint to dry then put it all together.

Back pedal?   What are you not getting?

Way easier than peg feebles. Go FAST. Keep front tire going straight forward Push down hard on foot. Stay off sprocket/chain/shoes.

Put the deathrow together shortly for a short ride around the hood.
28/9 aint so bad I don't know why it through me off so bad on the mothership. This feels awesome. I do need better wheels though since both of mine are Harlem shaking like crazy. And lighter tires need to be had.

I've got a couple of folding tires I could give you a deal on. Odyssey dirt path klyte 2.20 and a folding ghl-r 1.95. The Odyssey is only a few weeks old and has like 99% tread and the animal is a couple months old and has about 90%. 35 shipped for both?

Swore at it and stared at it a bunch while I waited for the bus to come pick me up due to a flat tire.  Will most likely be changing a flat tire later...that will evolve into truing my wheels, then probably cleaning out my headset and BB because they are creaking. And then....  Fuck.  I am going to have to actually work on my bike today.

cut my bars down by 5/8" on each side, then cut the bottom of my right dropout flush with the peg & hubguard. i also got halfway done grinding down the inner edge of my s&m hubguard so that it won't rub the spokes when i run it without the 2 supplied washers. it's too hard to pry my frame open every time i get a flat. so now all that's left to do is finish the guard, spray my front hub and bb spacers black, spray my frame army green and then reassemble and shred. i've been slacking for months, so i'm glad this shit is finally coming together.

Bought new wheels (Simple complete ones) and a 25t sprocket of a guy pretty cheap.

Hoping for a big difference going from a 36t/13t freewheel setup, to a cassette. Probably a lot lighter as well, since currently riding wheels of a 6-7 year old Wethepeople Compete.

put my directors back on, and switched the animal stem off with a solid.

Also put some clear eastern grips on, but I don't like them much yet.

Considering painting it soon, and I got some nice leather from the dump that I want to recover one of my premium fat pivotals with like this guy did...

I am pretty impressed with the finish. Used leather from an abandoned sofa. The centre piec aint the best job and the stapling and gluing aint tip top but better than an off white and torn cover...

but the shoe-goo-style adhesives I've tried are crap and I can't figure out how to make it look normal even if I do get it to stick. Thinking I need some staples...

Laced up the wheel for my flat bike project.  Front hub is on order.  Hope to be popping some wheelies by next weekend.  

Odyssey Aerospace rim laced to KHE Geisha Lite (special shout out to Bunky Master Flex!!).  The rim is the "deep purple" color.  It essentially looks black until the sunlight catches it just right.  It is really hard to get a picture to turn out.  That was the best one I could get.  Super rad looking rims through.  I recommend them to anybody who likes the aero style rims.

Ordered a new grips, chain, and brake pads for the '11 Trail Boss. Also just picked up a used Ruben tire for the rear since I am having some clearance issues thanks to my wheels needing a serious re-spoke/overhaul.

Ordered some trans green 8" 2-pc SBC Strip Bars, but they won't be back from the powdercoaters for a couple weeks.

Bought some more parts for the '97 Trail Boss project as well, Profile Hop-Up kit (American BB), Profile sprocket bolt, and an old solid cro-mo profile spindle.

my advice would be learn on a big quarter but that one doesn't look a bad size. its also good in a pipe because you build up speed without realising as you do them so you go faster

I took apart my 3 year old DK cassette and found that both the pawls and ratchet ring are worn to shit. Kind of sucks because I called up DK and they don't have any replacement pawls for the specific hub, which would at least help.

I'm surprised this hub has lasted as long as it has, it came off an '09 DK 8 pack complete.

I just took off my SBC Overload stem to get it ready to send to Canada. Threw on a spare Redneck XLT just to keep the bike rideable until the other Overload gets here.

Also, threw on the 20x2.0 Ruben I got from TCbmx, so now my rear wheel does not hit my brakes anymore (I need new spokes really bad, so the rim is trued as good as it can get until I get new spokes).

New black Bluebird chain, Fly Zapatas pads, ODI Longneck XL (cut to length) grips.

Next will be new rims and spokes.
Stoked.

Just had my first chance to build up one of the Sunday Broadcaster completes.  The Quik Slic cable paired with the Springfield brakes give a damn fine "bmx handshake" right out of the box.

Also built up my flat bike.  Tensioning the front wheel tomorrow and making last minute adjustments.  Will post a bike check with pictures when its together.

Hop earlier than you think you should and try to table into the wall,bend your knees a lot on impact so you can extend them and hop off of the wall.

you definetly don't need to do a table while trying to wallride, that will probably fuck you up. you need to tilt yourself with the bike, but the wallride is about crashing in the wall diagonally, not only tilting yourself, if that kinda makes sense.

i suck at explaining stuff.

Took both brakes off, redrilled/tapped head tube for non-Fly gyro tabs lower down the headtube (so gyro doesn't bottom out no matter what), swapped 30t Tree sprocket out for an old 28t 7075 Ody Compact sprocket (I got the quarter guard for it if I ever feel the need) and put a new Bluebird on.

The first Bluebird I've had that's been gold (matches half link colour) and I'm running a gearing I don't need a half link for. Stoked to have a spare unworn half link anyway as I have a billion spare lengths of 510 links and make new chains out of it from time to time

Brakes are going on when I CBF. I already have all the mounts/guides/gyro plate/gyro installed so I don't have to do it when I get around to putting the brakes (plural) on. The gyro is tied to the gyro plate so it doesn't rattle around while I'm getting around brakeless

NOOOOOO EOIN!! I couldn't do it. Whether I have pegs or not I always do other shit Wallrides and such, my bike just feels weird without those things sticking out.

Finally got my gyro set up all put together, had a hard time finding a short enough top cable so I was going to use old Astroglide bits and dérailleur cables to make one. But I managed to find a short top cable while I was at the shop picking up the gear to make one

Noticed how different an Ody Medium feels when on the bend. Triggers never felt weird in that spot but I want to try a different lever blade shape

I've always hated the way medium levers feel stock. I always take a wrench and put a nice curve in it. It feels better when its on the bend of the bars as well.

Just regular raptors. He had the female kit on it already so I scooped them up. The btr looks nice I saw it up close at the shop a while ago. This raptor will do for now though. I'm not a hard rider so i hope they don't explode for no reason.

The one that goes to the west entrance of my job is dangerous since it goes right into a haul road and it's bumpy as fuck. The other one is to the east main entrance and it has a blind curve but it's smooth. And the one coming from the opposite end of the east entrance is just a straight shot down hill but the train tracks make it dangerous.

had my rear tire explode out of nowhere. I was just sitting there and boom! wtf. lucky for me my friend had an extra tire in the truck I could use to keep riding. Then my brakes suddenly stopped working and I saw that one arm had completely lost all tension...lame. fixed it and kept riding, then played an intense game of BIKE with this fat 13 year old who got me to try a one hander flying out of the mini ramp haha. then that kid tried doing a fakie hop, fell and gashed his leg open on his axle (about 1 or 2 inches wide, 4-5 inches long) which pretty much ended my session for the day.

the brakes haven't happened yet. they more than likely will though, just to play around. wouldn't mind fuf'ing something. pegless came about out of boredom and to try and "de-rutt" my riding. really enjoying it to be honest, though you can't beat doing a rail or some sub box action.

Deanodized the blue of my solid sprocket. Tried "aluminum black" from birchwood casey (like gun bluing for alum). Looks ok, it probably would of looked better getting 2 jars then putting the sprocket into soak. rather than wiping it on like you do with bluing.
fixed a flat , and installed an S&M steel hubguard on my other bike

If that Mosh hub uses the same axle/hardware as a sealed Suzue/og Vandero it should fit.

Removed my 30-10 and went back 28-9 in anticipation of my new wheels.............. expensive drivers suck.

I've been trying to put new tires on my road bike and I keep getting pinch flats just installing the fucking things (I am using a Quik Stik). Wheels are 27", tires install fine without the tubes but when tubes are added to the mix it's like they are too fat.

I had a Carlos kind of night. Was going to go for a ride on the DB24 and discovered the front tire was flat. Drove to the bike shop and got a tube. Installed the tube and headed out. Made it a little over a mile before I heard a hiss hiss hiss coming from the back end. Ran over a fucking nail just long enough to puncture the tire/tube. Since the puncture was so tiny I was able to make it home before it went completely flat. Went back to the shop and bought two tubes, installed the rear tube and decided to drink beer instead of going for a ride.

I only patch in an emergency. Whenever I'd try to patch to save a tube and continue riding it, the patch would always fail at the most inopportune time. Yet I had friends that could run tubes with a dozen different patches and never have any of the patched areas fail. :dunno:

The only patch I've ever had fail is one of the self adhesive ones. That was only because it was a cheapo supermarket brand shit one. Patching tubes is like the first thing you learn how to do to your bike, surely?

Hand rails. I never do them and always seem to think I can but I never try. I like grinds but I'm just not good at them. I am good at some grinds on small ledges but when they get about stem height I can't connect. Plus I get bored of grinds because I can't do anything out of them.
Maybe I'll get more comfortable on my frame and can manage to get over some hurdles. But yeah I have a love hate relationship with pegs.

A few but getting to them is hard especially with work and usually when I do ride a park I rarely think about grinding. I used to ride nothing but trails so ibtry an ride as many ramps as possible I I do come across a park that has a good setup.

Rode some wall-ride at my friends house. We leaned a cubical wall against some logs. It was fun, tried to Double Peg stall it. Back peg missed and I landed on my thigh on the top of it. Folded around it, almost landed on my head, did some mega sit-up. Now I have a sweet ass bruise on my thigh. I'm surprised my femur isn't broken, I landed on it real hard on a 1" wide wall.


My abs are sore too.

flipped it off and mooned it since i'm still broke off from the recent pile of shit i ate where my wrist, shoulder, and left nipple all got worked over. i did however put a ziptie right behind the cable hanger to keep the straddle cable from flexing as an experiment and it worked great. when i had a dual cable gyro setup a month ago my brakes were like CLAK CLAK with near minimal tension and they were really stiff. now they feel almost as stiff with a ziptie pulled tight. people annoyed by the flexiness of the straddle in their brake setup should try this. ziptie, a piece of string, even a 1" diameter key ring would be good. also i put a tiny dab of grease in the straddle cable holding part of the brake arms, now there's no creaking. i probably won't be riding for another week so i'm thinking about polishing and gun-bluing my already raw t1 bars and profile crank arms. if i do i'll post pics.

Loads of foot high ledges for long high speed feebles.. Taking my pegs off as I completely overdid those today. Decided I only really enjoy riding trails now though, too many skaters and scooterers with no park etiquette.

I love my SFA, i got this/last years model direct from Joe. I bought it for a trails bike & have gradually been piecing it together, waiting on a cyclops stem & then im gunna get some new forks, a brake set up & probably some 8.85" T-1 bars & it'll be pretty much complete. On the other side of that ive got a Custom FBM coming which is for Flatland/Street which is worlds apart from the long, stable & smooth feeling SFA.

PS.. Bike Check! :)

I'm super pumped to have another T1 frame with welded mounts, and to have supported one of the best dudes in bmx. A bike check may happen soon, depending on when I can get out my camera.

Went for a ride last night, noticed that my Fly cranks had developed profile wobble on the right arm. Spindle bolt tight arm still wobbles. took them apart today. cleaned everything up. degreased the spindle and cranks arm. coated everything with Red loctite. I'm hoping it gets me thru the month or 2 of riding. Get new cranks in the winter

In the same boat with the fly cranks, cracked one arm replaced it then the other cracked too, spindle splines all destroyed resulting in wobbling and flexing (spindle is five years old tho).

first day on the new 10speed and im rushing out the door off to work and i think "i should put some air in my tires" so i stop at the pump in the back of my truck and begin undong a valve cap and think "im late, theres enough air, fuck it"
...probably bout 60psi...

so i jam off to the bus stop which is one town over and i can see the bus at the stop and BAM i hit a pothole and my rear pops. i hop off the bike and run 50ft too the already loaded bus.

you know what though, if i wouldve taken the time to pump up my tires im sure i woulda missed the bus n been late to work so eh

Started working on fakie slider revert thingys on a cassette so I could prove to my friend that he is being a pussy with his coaster.  Backpedal pressure at about 90 degrees is fucking me up and not letting me keep the front tire on the ground during the rest of the slide. Getting around fine but I want that tire to just stay on the ground the WHOLE time. When he's done seeing Jesus I'm gonna have to hound him and get a caffeine and cancer buzz going and get this shit down.

Currently putting some Tree 9" bars on, along with chopping down my non-front brake forks, and then going over to the skatepark to get some riding in. Stoked.

Where'd you get them bars?
I'm curious what the difference is between the new "Moto" bars and the Sequoia bars, because it looks like both are going to come in 8.5" rise...

I started working at Tree a bit over a month ago, and was lucky enough to start just as new parts were coming in. The bars aren't out yet, but if Sam is happy with them and the dudes like everything, then things should be flowing quite soon. I snagged these sample 9"rise/4*up ones earlier today because we didn't need them for any team/photo stuff.

I guess the most notable difference is the more traditional box shape. They aren't as tight as the Sequoias were, but thankfully they don't look like just another huge slam bar copy. They come in three sizes (8.5"x28.5", 9"x29.5, and 9.5"x30) and all of them have cut lines, come threaded for bar ends, and they are all still available in either one or four degree upsweep.

I went from uncut Sequoias, so before I went out to ride I cut my 9"s down to 28.5" wide, and chopped close to half an inch off my non-front brake forks. I only got two hours in at the park tonight, but I like the way they fit/feel on my bike so far.

Can't wait, will definitely be fitting a set of the 9"x4° up on my bike. Can you cut them to 27.75 and still have threads for the barends?

Yeah, you should be able to do that no problem. The threads went in pretty far on my pair still, and thats only 3/4" difference to what mine are currently cut down to.

No word on when they'll be available for purchase yet, but if I remember, I'll ask Sam about them tomorrow. I know we took some photos of all the bars last week. More info will be out there soon.

Glad you dudes like them!

rode it three times this week, first time in 6 weeks proper... put my pegs back on, turns out I can only ride trails because it doesn't hurt my ankle (as long as I clear the jumps dubbed "the kiddies jumps" at the local spot). will probably take pegs off again, the universe has turned upside-fucking-down. Went from being at a level I was chuffed with to not even being able to hop properly. Either way, trails are fun.

Painted bars/forks/cranks. Bought a new BB bearing and marmoset bearing from my local bearing supplier.

Haven't ridden in a month, fuckin' killing me.

It uses 6802s in the shell, the same bearings usually used in drivers, if you're careful they might survive, but it's probably best to have a set of bearings on hand...

where do you take this information? i have a remix. haven't done a singe fucking thing to it for over a year. did a huge 180 drop and messed up my back real hard, my ribcage got heavily out of true (broke like 4 spokes or something). not a damn thing happened to the hub. not to mention all the other stuff i have done and just daily rididing/commuting.  so please, if you don't have any personal experience then stfu :) no offense though, im just saying.

i must say it skips sometimes though and that is kinda annoying. its nice and clean and on the inside and the all the springs seem to work well, dunno why its doing those small skips sometimes. still a pretty good hub though, it isn't very expensive and all the replacement parts are cheap too.

I'm not saying the Remix is weak, or even that it's a bad hub, I'm saying that 6802 bearings are tiny, and in most cases, are really not very durable at all.
A friend of mine got a remix shortly after they came out, and if I remember correctly he was on his 3rd set of bearings when he got rid of it recently.

If you don't get any dirt or sand in there they should last most people a while, but I guess I'm just butthurt that Primo made such a shitty move with the bearings.

eh, i must say i wanted to buy the og mix but it was sold out. the bearings are fine like i said but it kinda rolls slow. when im riding it, it feels good, but when you spin the wheel in hand it is kinda slow. but meh, since it hasn't given me any headaches and the driver bearings are perfect, i'd say it's a decent hub. always could be better though.

I bought a remix cos it was in the UK section and both my mix shells are dead, along with my axle and several bearings.

I have fucked wheels up hard before, i've owned various mixes in the last 5-6 years and can definitely vouch for their durability. I just jumped at the chance of getting an up-to-date wheel at a good price.

I'll just be careful with it and check all the bearings every few months, it can't be that bad and bearings are cheap anyway I daresay.

Well, I waited for parts to pop on craigslist that I wanted, then I would buy them.

I think I can go through most of it off the top of my head:

Wheels = $50 +$3 for 3 replacement spokes, craigslist
Tires = $25 each, wholesale
Tubes = $10 each, retail
Cassette & Chain = $40ish, retail hookup
Crankset & BB = $65, craigslist
Pedals = $80, wholesale
Bar Tape = $15, retail
Frame, Fork, and Seat post clamp = $120, Craigslist
Stem = $20
Bars = $25
Shifters = $135 for the set (Ultegra Rear and 105 Front), Craigslist
Derailleurs = $30 for the ultegra rear, $10 for the Dura-ace front
Seat Post = $100, retail
Headset = $50 retail
Seat = $80 wholesale
Cables = $20

Which would come out to about $900, but keep in mind I've been building this over two months, tires, tubes, stem, bars, pedals  and seat I already had, and a lot of this stuff came with extras, so I have extra Front derailleurs now, and couple little nick nacks. I enjoyed meeting all the random roadies on CL most though.

Also, keep in mind that I may have spent $900, but there's a lot of parts on here way better than what you'd find on a $1600 ride.

Similar situation here, I work 50-60 hour weeks (second shift), so that pretty much kills my week except Sundays. Thankfully I start a new job on Monday. Salary position, 1st shift hours and more free time....... I can't wait. More time to ride and finally finish some work on my house.

Post by: Austin Tasseltine on October 11, 2012, 07:12:43 AM
im looking at a custom STA. the regular frame is $425, then you add extra cost for the custom elements. i want a steeper headtube ($45) and was looking at a shorter back end but thats $100 extra (cos of having to set all the tubes up differently for a custom length).

I also originally enquired about custom standover height ($45) cos the new style STAs from a couple of years back were real low, but the newer version has a better standover. im kind of torn cos i like a short backend but i also like running my bashguard on the inside which doesnt allow for much clearance unless the frame uses a wishbone design (like a sunday) so i dunno.

I really want an STA but to get it how i want is gonna cost a lot. The guy i was talking to suggested getting a juke, maybe a juke with the classic standard gusset would be a good compromise

Originally made in the USA but supposedly the majority of them broke so they switched production to Taiwan.
Theyre about to change the shape, I was on the fence about ordering them but the new ones look real crappy compaired to the originals, so the current model was ordered.

Stared at it and couldn't find anything to tinker with other than a Ti bolt for the Pivotal set-up.

Wroked on the road bike a little instead. New tube, adjusted some stuff since I finally have about 100 miles on it.

Looking forward to Monday. New job, will be off work by 5 daily, so I should be able to ride all of the bikes a LOT more.

Stoked.

Did a raw/gun blue fade finish on my frame. Turned out ok, not as nice as it did on my solid frame, or T1 SFA. Wondering if different tubing and their alloys react different too the bluing.

Does the front foot get close on them big bikes?


I haven't had any issues. I'm running 180mm cranks too. However I do ride left foot forward and x-up to the right. I'm too much of a puss to try barspins, so as far as I'm concerned the foot/tire clearance is good.

I have not gotten it checked out, the swelling has gone down quite quickly as has the bruising. There is just a little resonating pain and swelling but overall its not too bad.

Was the pain terrible with the bone and ligament gone? because I'm not in all that much pain about a week later

Shes getting there. Sorted the narrow backend & moved the brake lugs today.

Cut the lugs off & removed brazed part of the nut as it was going to be Tig welded on. To gain the height back on the mount we welded the cut down mount to a nut (the same final height as before) & then moved the mounts 13mm closer to the seat tube (to where they should be)

No mounts

I won't guess at warranty since we have an Odyssey employee on here, but just because it has this hole, there is no reason to retire the rim. I had a hole like that in my 7ka for years and it had no effect on anything. I later sold it to a kid that is really abusive and eventually it cracked at the weld, but the hole never got worse or caused a failure.

Off work today, so I dialed in my bike a little more by putting one of the sample Tree topload stems and some fresh raw 8.5" Moto bars on my SFA. Soon I'll be off to the indoor park to session everything with some awesome dudes.

In the next few days I'll have a custom Tree pivotal from James at Native (which I'm super stoked for), and I'm debating on taking my gearing up to 33-11 in the next week or so for kicks.

Pretty certain that wouldn't be anything covered under the normal warranty.  From the picture it appears that there was some sort of impact that caused the hole.  You can email warranty (at) odysseybmx.com and he can give you the final answer.  Might be worth sending his way just to see what he has to say.

Did you hit it on an upright on a rail or something?  That is a crazy looking hole.  

I laced up a wheel once and cased the shit out of it first run at the skatepark.  Completely ruined the rim... I feel your pain.

the only thing I could think of as to how it happened was, the other night I was trying a thread the needle Ice Pick between a ledge and a barrier and got sent. I thought my peg had caught the end of the ledge, I guess not.

Yeah its a bummer. I might have to lace up my old 7ka as that is the only rim that has held up in the rear for an extended period of time for me.

BTW Pegs, wondering in a general forum without directly contacting the company only offers the opportunity for speculation. Having Odsy and G-sport employees here only offers the benefit of speculation from the horse's mouth, as I would have to contact the warranty department directly for a final verdict (as Skateparkrider was nice enough to point out). I am fully aware of where fault lies when it comes to bike parts, I am no dumb 14 year old child. It was merely an attempt at a topic of conversation. Similar to how you would engage your friend after breaking something. i.e. "Dude I wonder if they would warranty that"

I'm debating on taking my gearing up to 33-11 in the next week or so for kicks.


Man up and go for 36-11 or 36-12

Ha! If we had 36t bolt drive sprockets in stock (all Tree carries in house above 33t is spline drive only, and I'm currently on some Fly cranks) you could consider it done.

Did this to my rim sometime in the last time I rode. There goes my rear roll cage. Any idea if this would be a warranty-able? Shot in the dark, I am not asking Gsport to give me a new rim. Just wondering

(http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff195/Back2Bmx/20121025_075307.jpg)


The warranty is against defects in materials workmanship that kind of thing, we are pretty generous with it, but there doesn't seem like a lot of doubt that an impact that can do that to a Rollcage would mangle pretty much any rim in a similar way (and many would fair much worse)...

Having said that, Logan (warranty at odysseybmx.com) is a super nice guy and he might well be offer you a crash replacement deal that will save you a fair bit of cash and get you rolling again, so worth hitting him up...

Thanks George, I appreciate your advice. I wouldn't have expected a full warranty replacement. This is pretty clearly rider error. I was just surprised I didn't notice it on the day it happened

I've seen a dude do this to a Hazard Lite rim by clipping the corner of a ledge real hard. He rode it for nearly two years after that just fine.


my mate bought a second hand wheel with a gsport rim that had been clipped like this as well (not as bad as pats mind) but yeah he rode it for ages with no problems.

i had to take my gland off today cos its ruined. i landed on the edge of it a couple of times when grinding a square rail and it bent a bit, and one of the holes where you tie it to the wheel pulled through. since then the rest of the holes pulled through as well and the whole thing got bent over and totally fucked which is a shame. had a good 7-8 years use though, gonna have to buy some new ones

Closest you will get is a sunday 3rd wave. Runs 30t with space and fits huge tires. You might be able to fit a 33t without spacers.

stuck in injury recovery mode, lent my brother my bike to mess around on. the same brother that once 'cleaned' my bottom bracket with WD-40, pounded old barends into the bars to fit new ones, rounded a couple of 3/8 bolt heads on hubs inside pegs.

it's just a bike afterall but i'm getting progressively more paranoid as i type this out...

if I did that to a rim myself I wouldnt even think about a warranty, it'd be my own fault fucking it up while riding

either way your fishing got you a bite so you might get a cheaper replacement, I still say just ride it though

Not for my bike....but I usually build up new wheels for everybody in the office.  Here is my first ever ti spoke build.  Odyssey Vandero 2 laced to Aerospace rim with G-Sport nipples.  I used 182mm spokes.  I also went with the G-Sport nips because I heard you have to really tension ti spokes.  Laced up like a champ.  This is probably the 4th or 5th Aerospace rim I have laced up.  Really really digging this rim.  Seems like once you get the spokes up to tension, the rim just goes straight.  

Overall weight on the wheel is 0.123214 Stone (1lbs 11.6 oz) with out the rim strip.  Pretty damn lite weight.  Lacing up the rear tonight.

I ride Birdcages on my main bike.  But I laced up new wheels for my flat bike a few months back and went with the Aerospaces.  Its a tough call to make indeed.

I'm thinking I will lace up my old 7ka in the rear. Without a doubt my favorite rims that I have ever owned. They are just so tough. I liked the birdcages when I had them, and the aerospace rims look sick as well. But apparently I'm pretty abusive to rims.

So i tried the Stranger bars out today. Whilst my back loves them, I cannot get used to the height. Ive been running larger & larger bars & my hops keep getting lower & lower. So the Stranger bars are on my Marv, my mate rides it quite alot so i doubt he'll have the same issues i have. Ive just emailed Solid about getting some custom bars, theyre copies of the last bars i actually felt comfortable on & enjoyed riding with a little tweek of being slightly wider. Hopefully they will be able to do them & i shall be paying for them in a week or two after the FBM has arrived & all duties etc are paid!

Im going with....

7.75" Height
26" Width
4.5 Degree Upsweep
10.5 Degree Backsweep
Straight Gauge .065" Tubing
19mm Cross Bar
5.375" Cross Bar Height
10" Cross Bar Width
Raw Clearcoat (To match my FBM frame)

since she wants to suck off Dennis Enarson. and noticed he had chrome bars. she made me put these chrome inmans on "her ltf" so i had to take the 4x4s and hang them up on my railed seat display.

also got some odi O grips for the first time. feel pretty good so far. little thinner than longnecks but ill be ight.

The last bars i ever really felt comfortable were Odyssey Civilian Highs but i bent them & had to throw them away in the end (before i really knew about odysseys great warranty) Over time ive got used to slightly wider bars, not a great deal wider than the Civilians mind, so 26" feels perfect to me. I think there are 2 or 3 handle bars under 8" now-a-days too so custom seems like the only way really.
