Its metal against plastic without any strong forces on the screw right? Wouldnt just household glue do the trick?

I can relate to the heat/humidity problem. I used to ride in Singapore for a bit and had to ride at night and used tons of chalk on my hands to be able to ride.

I think most of the knurled ones are still out there, just that everyone seem to be buying the large and smooth ones now.

I went in to a shop last year asking for a light weight foldable tyre, and they just laughed at me saying that noone cares about tyre-weight anymore...

I also visited a BMX-store in Flensburg, Germany last weekend and they had some new Shadow tyres for 54 euros, never seen a BMX tyre that expensive!

Ive had similar noises from one of my many KHE-style coasters where it made a loud noise when disengaging.
Think it had to do with the clutch having sharp edges. Didnt damage the hub, just made a loud noise.

If it is too annoying I think you can very sligthly file off the top micro-meter of where the clutch engage the hub. I would assume that this could change how evenly the clutch catches the hub Shell though, rendering this a stupid idea.

What about just installing some other lock nuts on your old hub, if you still have it?
Would be the easiest way to get back on your bike if the Anti-gram is broken.

If one was to be released I might get one. I like my 6-year old Ratchet. Just hope the driver has been updated as I have had tons of problems with all three Ive run.

Must have gotten out of fashion when micro gearing became the new norm. The reason for such chains went out the window and I guess they wouldnt even fit around 9t drivers.

My best friend's brother apperently stabbed a girl to death after she refused to sleep with him and then tried to kill himself a couple of years ago. Messed up.

From what I heard they did update the internals. I think the guys in my local shop got a batch in with updated internals but they didnt work perfect either, which might be why they discontinued the oh so hyped coaster just after release.

Kind of make it sound like all 9t need half links. Depends on what CS length you are running.

500 000? Really?

I imagined the total BMXers in the world would total at about 20.000

I always wondered how input G had in the design as it seems like it incorporates a lot of the stuff I read from him from the years.

I hope it has thin sidewalls. Thick sidewalls are good for grinding durability but tend to ride and land harshly on anything that isn't perfectly smooth concrete. Thin sidewalled tires give you a much nicer ride and also happen to be lighter (roadies refer to them as 'supple' I believe).

Never thought of this.

Im too surprised about the two companies doing a collar, seems like two different sides of the spectrum

I read a lot of news and such.

Aljazeera has tons of good articles and news stories.

Otherwise I only go on bikeguide and engadget.

Are those the Hoffman bars? Man I would love another kneesaver style bar! Shame the hoffmans are a tad low at 8" (I am very tall).

Might get the Quest bar, not as nice but 9"
