The Bike Shop / Fat Tires (for the rear)
« on: July 23, 2019, 04:12:49 PM »
Hello kids,

I don't ride that much but it seems that im only going smaller on tires for my rear wheel. Why? A few pointers for the smaller sized tire are:

No need to upgrade your frame choices.

Most new frames now a days come with the 2.35 rear tire option. But I don't spend 389.99 bucks on a new frame. I just stick with the classics.

Your rear hub will last longer THIS

Am I right? Im not trying to prove anyone wrong but does it make sense a smaller tire weighs less than a big fat tire and therefor reduces the impact to your wheel hub?

I feel like kids now a days go through hubs and parts faster than we used to.

What other points do you approve for running smaller tires on the rear? Or do you already run the big fat tire.

Hello BG users.

I am in the situation of starting a t-shirt company. I know we have been through this topic but I can smell something coming.

These are the first shirts we printed.

The meaning of the word Recio is fast in spanish, we use the word Recio to make reference to something or someone being overly CRAZY from drugs to stupid situations.

The first batch of t-shirts only sold 2 and the others got lost among "friends" while I went to jail for DUI.

Please let me know what you think and what you expect from a t-shirt company you like.

Being OLD(almost 30), how do you cope with the sport being over run by millenials?

Do you still have friends who ride? How do you manage riding with millenials? What other activities have you come upon since all your friends started having babies and leaving BMX?

Well seeing as this site needs a Little more traffic, I want to discuss a topic most every person who likes bikes can talk about.

So what are the perks of being a motorcyclist? What have you experienced with different brands as Yamaha, Kawasaki and what made you give up on them?

As a starter I would like to know any type of stories. So let the rumbling begin.


The Bike Shop / Freecoaster worn clutch
« on: September 04, 2017, 12:29:25 PM »
Hello I have Alienation rush freecoaster.

Its a reliable hub, however i got it 2nd hand for cheap.

I checked and the clutch seems to be overly worn, therefor it sticks whenever i put too much pressure.

Im thinking this is an easy fix just replace the clutch or grease it, however i would like to replace it.

My question is the following: Is a LHD clutch the same as a RHD clutch?

I´m heavy on pegs and low on cash.

My options are merritt, demolition or cult or fiend.

any comments on these hubs i just need to get rid of my cassette and begin my journey.

The Lounge / Today i know what a bike is for.

What is a fucking bike for?

Many years date back from the creation of the two wheeled vehicle and half as many years is my birthdate, so today i can finally say i know what a bike is for.

We use these vehicles out of pure passion and incite ourselves to trick our mind that everything will be ok.

Nearly 10 years + of BMX have brought me into pushing my bike ahead of me. I always had to strive to créate something with BMX, my mentality was push it forward without having to chase the massess.

Bmx has given me as many Friends as I have. Bikes have become a trait of my personality and i couldn’t imagine involving myself without the use of one.

It was once a dream of mine to own many bicycles i could use. Luckily life was good with me ahead of time and handed me my weapons of choice.

I came to own these:

•   A Solid Bmx
•   MTB
•   Vintage 700cc

Out of each one i learned one thing, people appreciatte these machines. When i worked at a bike shop once and arrived on my univega racer, my boss was streaked, but not impressed of my abilities. I worked there for 6 months until i was put off for eventually not doing enough work.

I sold this beaute for a spring break roadtrip and I can’t say it wasn’t worth it. But will i ever streak a NOS univega for my own cruising pleasure? Idk.

Every other bike i’v had is rugged, solid parts, primo cranks, heavy rims.

The univega was slick and rugged at the same time with Araya wheels. That bike was ahead of my time, even being an older model.

Today i know what a bike is for, so don’t crash your bikes, bash your bikes or even sell your bikes. Trade them or simply give them away.

Damn nostalgia.
