Dirt bros sprocket!

Someone posted it for sale on here like 5 years ago for 20 or 25 bucks shipped and I had to have it. Sprockets are my favorite part to collect.

Boner status for the Inman. Rad color combo.  8)

I was torn between Krylon Classic Almond or Sea Glass. Think I made the right choice, I'll save the teal for next time around. Might go redwalls if there's any available when I wear the Kink tires out, I'm really sad they appear to have discontinued these.

I didn't know brazing was that strong, it looks awesome. I had bad luck with the masterlink in the Keychain, check to make sure the allen screws are tight before you ride. I wanted to like it but getting sent twice was enough for me. Also stoked to see that Tree hub.

Looks like it hauls ass. I've got the same tan with chrome 4pc bar idea going on my Fit Inman. How tall are you though? 21.5 is huge

I waiting fucking 9 years to get my hands on that T1 stem. And my main bike had a 21" OG Sunday for years until this past summer:

I think frames with a 69 seat tube usually ran about 1/4" smaller than a 71 seat tube frame, 21.25" 69* frame had the same wheelbase but larger front end than 21" 71* frame.
It would only feel longer when you're sitting down though. The BB and HT would be in the same relative place on a 21" 71 degree frame as a 21.25" 69 degree frame. Remember how they sold the Tierra with measured and effective TT lengths listed? I always thought changing the ST angle was the dumbest thing.

How do you keep from mixing up your tubes of chapstick? Or do you just use one for everything?

So many different types of forums are dying thanks to Facebook. But Facebook groups have fucking terrible organization and are useless for anything other than what's current. I miss how the internet used to be.

I don't check on here much cause it slowed down and I got out of the habit of it, but I probably ride BMX more lately than I ever have. Mostly just drinking beers, riding fakie, peg chinking stuff, and falling on my face. Never gets old.

I'm still riding a 21" original Sunday. I kinda want to upgrade to a new Sunday next year after how well it's held up. I've twisted and cracked other frames, and cracked dropouts. None of that has happened on my Sunday and I haven't seen anyone else close to competing with features like the hollow dropouts.

What happened to the Marmoset? I'm about to put my new bearings in my ancient one
I put some fresh bearings in mine last summer and I think it'll be good to go for another 10 years. George outdid himself and should have planned some obsolescence.
I just built brand new wheels but reused my old Marmoset. Slapped new Enduro bearings in and it's still perfect. Sunday Cyclone freecoaster and Eclat Bondi rims. Should be good to go for another 5 years anyways now.

I had a Profile Mini on a wheel that a skateboard rolled into the spokes of. Ripped 2 holes straight out of the flange. Hub had never seen a grind and Profile wanted me to ship it to them, pay $55 for a new shell, and pay return shipping. Profile flanges are weak as hell.

3 of the homies and I put preorders in at Empire for the next batch. I'm bummed about the imperial threads but I might just drill it out and run a metric helicoil kit through. Been waiting long enough and it looks so good that I have to get one anyways.

Will do combo deals. Prices are best offer, values of things have gone down but shipping costs have gone up...

If you're still driving that Ranger, pay special attention to washing the rear frame off. The back 2 feet is where they rot the worst, and the radiator support in the front. I had almost the same truck and I had to replace the spring shackles because they disintegrated, and patch the radiator support because it rotted off.

I've got the Thule big mouth trays, I love them:

The only downsides are the price (160 each retail last I checked) and that I can only get one click on the straps on a 2.3 tire. Anything larger needs the tire aired down. I have not checked to see if they have longer straps though...
