^ I was the one who initially lobbied for you for moderator there. We already had enough mods who wrote something that was stickied and then went on to spend their time posting photos of their bikes, you on the other hand spent all your time in the trenches of vague help-me-fix-my-bike threads that would give even the most patient people headaches

I took them off a couple years ago while I decided what to do with them. I was going to give them to kkmk but he never collected and I have lost them in a move :| I had considered trying the next increment down in bolt length, particularly for the ones  next to the spindle (essential pins) and wanted to explore the possibility of actually using plastic in some way for the outer pins

you can either ghetto file down the bolts (i.e. pedal pins), or just get shorter ones

iirc, the stock JCPCs come with 21mm long and 18mm long bolts installed. i just took one of them to a hardware stall to get matching ones at 15mm long, so i could install the 18mm ones in the 21mm slots, and the new 15mm ones in the 18mm. they're still a bit too grippy to my liking since i also ride a lot of flatland, but they should be good for street riding/ big jumps

You were a moderator on bmx-forum? did you have a different username?

Nostalgia sent me back to BG this week. I was JWNolte or mack_turtle on BMX-Forum. I checked that recently and most of it was still there, but a ghost town. Some of my old posts on were inspired by that.

Where do all the whippersnappers go to talk shit about bikes now? I had a few "bikeguide live" conversations lately with an old BG member that I know and realized that all the old online bmx haunts are now dead. Are they all facesnapping and instabooking each other about drilling holes in their rims to save weight? I feel old.

sounds like you should file the pins down.
stock pins grip so much your shoes will stick while trying to eject. mine are about as grippy as a new pair of plastics
The Bike Shop / metal shavings inside odsy antigram hub
« Last post by blueee on April 19, 2018, 01:12:03 PM »
so I've occasionally been feeling a grinding and resistance in my drivetrain when I pedal

~my driver is also missing one spring&pawl~

so upon inspecting my hub I notice metal shavings inside the hub. is this caused by the missing pawl and spring? is there a bearing inside the driver? I have not been able to spot where the metal is benign shaved from. I keep my hub lubed, but have had to clean out the metal shaving encrusted grease maybe two or three times in the past two months.

has anyone else experienced this problem?

This looks so good, how's brazing tubing together compared to tig ? Might be a stupid question but I'm genuinely interested, does/will it hold up well ?
