I would be all over a full guard sprocket in 30 or 33t (why make smaller anyway, can barely hit a sprocket that small) and if its spline drive.

Or better yet, the first versions of the light sprocket that looks like the ones Tree is making now. I suppose they broke, but damn they were sexy

I assume the driver in the G-Coaster didnt work out.

I loved the ratchet but gave up on it after a few years when I was on my third driver and they all had design problems even though they were the updated versions.
I assume the G-Coaster had similar problems.

Have the Profile Z-coaster now which is an awesome hub when going forward but worst FC I had for going backwards, luckily I almost never do fakies (I just hate the sound of cassettes).

I would be tempted but $420 is a lot even though I have the money.
Is there a market for stuff like this?

Isnt it the Magneto hub that they have been testing for about 10 years?

Could probably make it female in a similar way the z-coaster works.

Got myself a Salt coaster a while back and it kinda broke. Just got myself a z-coaster and it might just be me but I am not impressed how it works, spins really badly. Gonna put it on the test.

I doubt that the tyre weight would change the durability of the hubs etc., at least not noticably.

Back in the days I, and my friends, certanly broke more parts than kids do today, just because the parts were of a poorer quality compared to now.

I however feel that people ride different nowadays. Its a lot of street and spins where you put weird loads on your spokes/hub that break them. I rarely spin and only land and put landing pressure on my wheels, which they hold up fine for.

I believe it - a friend of mine hit his head and could no longer taste or smell.

I smacked my head on the ground and it fucked up my sense of smell and taste. At least it's still there, just a bit different and took a while to learn how things taste now. Wish I could blame my reatrdation on that, though.

I met a girl who was born without the ability to smell. I couldnt grasp how living without being able to smell would be, and still cant.

I think he just interviews soundcloud rappers, I don't think he does anything bmx anymore. His gf does porn, which is cool I guess. But yeah he just seems really scummy.

I was just about to say. I havent heard his name in 2-3 years... Guess he isnt doing anything bmx-related

The Lounge / Re: What have you made?

I've made a few pairs of boots and shoes over the past few years. Here's the most recent pair. Handwelted, only electric tool I used was a belt sander to shape the sole edges.

That is so cool. I would love to do something similar myself.

If I remember correctly you went to some kind of design-uni right? If one would want to just try and make shoes without any experience; how difficult would it be? Completely impossible or realistic with patience?

The Bike Shop / Re: MID BB width
« on: August 13, 2018, 03:03:16 AM »
Fairly sure the BB width has never been standarized. I have at least never had the possibility to just pop in a tub spacer and have it fit nicely. Always had to trim or add shims, such a pain...

The Bike Shop / Re: Any lightwate street cassettes
« on: August 06, 2018, 03:15:12 AM »
I would assume that any hub would do for light street, just list by weight on a shop´s site.

But why 48 if you want light and ride light street?

If you can try and get ahold of the Suelo front brake. Ive tried a couple of brakes and this one is like no other! It is super hard to come by however...

The Lounge / Re: T-shirt company
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:53:05 AM »
I had a t-shirt company like 14 years ago (boy am I old...).

How it sells and what designs and types of shirts that will work depend on what market you go for.
Based on the type of shirt and design I would say it could work if you want to sell it to BMXers or people in similar groups that you hang out with.
Sales would best work if you sell it at jams or similar.

If you wanna sell it locally at a store or similar I would recommend a different type of shirt depending on how people dress where you live.
