The Bike Shop / Re: email to the city about slippery concrete
« on: April 06, 2018, 02:44:05 AM »
I would personally say Hi, hello or Dear Sir/XXX instead of hey.

Good idea though. Around my parts they use course concrete that almost feel like gravel when you hit it sometimes. I would imagine that they could somehow roughen up the surface to make it better even though they use super fine concrete when building it.

I actually felt that the body wasnt that big when I got mine, at least compared to twisted pc, so i switched back to twisted.

The Bike Shop / Re: Eclat Cortex clutch on a Primo Freemix

Not sure what the spring is for but I would just try it with it first and see if it works. I would imagine that it would work fine without it as long as there is something large enough to prevent the clutch to move too far into the hub.

The Lounge / Re: When's the last time you rode your bike?
« on: February 28, 2018, 03:15:10 PM »
Early January when I went on a trip. Moved to Oslo and the cold winter made me start cross country skiing rather than ride. Only indoor streetcourses here and I only ride bowls/bigger ramps, so Im waiting for spring.

The Bike Shop / Re: old man knees and crank arm length
« on: February 12, 2018, 05:37:41 AM »
From 175 you can more or less only move up to 180, which would not be a massive difference. If you are riding with pegs it is also more likely that you would hit the peg with the back off your shoes when riding longer cranks.
Im 6.3 and ride 160 cranks and tend to ride for 30-60 minutes to the park. I used to ride 180 but felt that you move your legs around so much when you pedal. Have no issue with knees though, for that I would just ride a super long seatpost that you can slam into the frame when you start riding the spot.

Was Erik Elstran mucking around when he used to say he was gay in his videos?

He post pics on his IG with his GF. I mean he could be bi but I guess he is straight...

Heard about this from a gay bmx-friend of mine who met him.

My buddy kept his sexuality hidden for years from the local crew (which is big) until he got a bf and started getting tagged in pics. Noone treated him differently, which was nice.

The Bike Shop / Re: araya 7x rims

Still fond of haz lites as a budget rim but the chrome is no good. Some people seem to get lucky, but I gave away like 4 of them because of the chrome failing

They never fixed that? Me and a few friends got them when they first came out aaaaaages ago. They all looked horrible after just a few months. Thought they would fix that...

The Bike Shop / Re: aluminum bb spacer idea thingy
« on: January 02, 2018, 05:11:57 AM »
Those bushings that you odn't use a tube spacer with have some serious issues. If you have pinch bolt cranks, your sprocket will move on the spindle and the bolt will come undone. If you don't have pinch bolt cranks, your crank arms will move on the spindle and the spindle bolts will come undone too. Not to mention that without a tube spacer, dropping the bike on the cranks/pedals is no good for the bushing/bearing on that side of the BB...

Yeah, I rode it with a profile set and tried my best to make it work. If I tightened the cranks enough for it to not come loose I couldnt crank and if I did it enough for my cranks to spin the cranks would come loose really quickly. Had to use a lot of lochtigh but was still too annoying in the end so changed back to regular bearings.
Used a splined drive sprocket so had no issue with the sprocket.

I ride with a very small crew and go to skateparks and ride with whoever wanna ride. In my area most young kids are quite cool to be around but the 18-25 year olds (which is most riders here) tend to be a bit annoying. Only ride street and act all gangster all the time.

I got injured a year ago, bought a flat and now just got an expat contract and moved abroad, so I have barely been riding for a year. Nowadays it seems like I only go on organised trips with my crew twice a year. Might bring my bike here during springtime to find new friends.

Carlos, why stop at Spanish? They're SO heavy! Euro too!  Why not just run bushings??!!

I actually tried the KHE gen. 1 bushings as I had a problem with my cranks spinning whenever I took my feet off (rode some flatland at the time). It was sooooooo annoying to ride with. Would have to kick-start each crank.
They added a small bearing in the gen 2. It is still a silly idea but for someone like you it might be interesting.

I got a Norrøna winter jacket a while ago, best buy ever. Quite pricey though.

Knew a guy that rode with a huge knee brace, like from the hip to the ankle. Obviously limits your riding, but it protects your damaged ACL like nothing else.

Could always try and get some sealant or glue and try and center your bearing in the frame. If you use silicone it might also work as a suspension for your cranks, haha.

I wonder if it would wear out from flexing too much too often on a BMX.
