Danscomp is actually a pretty good resource for bearing and thread sizes. I can write up a page with a table of parts and thier dimensions. I can also make a good gyro installation write up but someone else will have to do pics.

Even if we don't get get it hosted here, it would be cool if sheep could throw a link up on the main page, and onto the title bar of the forums.
Barring that we should chip in for an ad banner here.

With some diligence, vandalism isn't an issue. You can just periodically check the changelog and restore and vandalized articles.

There are many reason why it can't just be added to wikipedia. Wikipedia dislikes anything that is and opinion and not fact, some of the articles like the best way to put on grips for example would never fly. Wikipedia is also some what against in depth niche articles. Think of it this way, anything you wouldn't find in a hard copy Encyclopedia doesn't really belong on wikipedia. Sure you could probably put a page up explaining the various types of bicycles and their components, but if you wanted to make a page about assembling and maintaining a freecoaster hub it would get taken down.

Yep, a wiki is definitely the way to go for this type of thing. A group effort can do so much more than a single person.

I have access to the software that runs and the bandwidth to run it.

All we need is a couple of people who are willing to moderate. I'm willing to put in the work to get it started.
Definitely willing to help moderate.

I think we should also do a comprehensive part/frame/bike list as well on it.  That would be really good for people buying outdated parts they can't seem to find any info on.  Winstanleys used to keep all the old shit listed, but they purged it a few months ago.

I don't think an individual page for part would be necessary. But ti would be nice to have a big table of parts and their specs and dimensions.

I talked to the late Sheldon Brown about the idea a few years ago. He himself did not want to create a wiki, he said he wanted to maintain complete control over his website. He did say that if I made one I could use some of the articles from his site though. Sheldon Brown is definitely a good resource that we can tap into to flesh out the wiki and get it started.

Right, there is so much clay around here. Im just going to try again across the street from me.

Yea there is tons of clay but it's all patchy and usually buried under a couple feet of silt and rocks. I might try digging at the spot I had last year and just try and find the clay deposits.

I need to find a spot to build, everything around here either has crappy sandy dirt, or its next to a building.
If I understand my geology right, this whole area used to be a river bed, so its nothing but rocks and sand.

this looks so much fun

Those are small, but really fun looking.

I would love to see more helmet cam footage, it would be nice to see what some of the pros could do with a nice stabilized HD helmet cam.

Just re-learned hop bars today. I hadn't thrown the bars for almost 2 years until re-learning them fly out last week. Tried a few hop bars today and got 4 out of 4, almost had a 180 bar too.

I can't tailwhip, I can only get one foot on every time. But I can find that one foot on 3 whips, downside whips, opposite whips, fastplant to whips, superman to late whips, nac-nac to late whips, and probably a half dozen other whip variations I am forgetting.
It makes me angry ]=

I also spin my whips really strange, all arms and no kick. It starts out slow and then rockets around at light speed. By the end of a day of trying to learn whips my entire foot is black and blue from the cranks smacking into it, but damnit I want whips just for all the crazy variations.

Bar catch bar is the worst trick ever invented, man up and do doubles.

I wanted to keep this one in the bag until I could get a good video of it, but oh well. Nac-nac to can-can, rad as fuck. I also have 4 tail whip variations you have never even thought of that will be pulled as soon as my feet figure out where the pedals are.
