Installed brakes then realized I'm a fucktard and have cut my cable to short. Brakes work fine just cable binds up on the head tube after about 3/4 turn on the bars. Looks like I will never get dialed brakes or learn bars spins ever fml

Shimmed my ratchet using a coke can,the needle bearing tolerances are so tight.My driver is so smooth now.

So today I made my bike not feel like shit.Next on the list is replacing my bent t1 American flyer sprocket,thought it would last longer but it somehow bent when I have no pegs.

Can't find any 186mm spokes in my garage to fix the many broken spokes on my back wheel

fuck

Got my new rims (G-sport birdcage) and spokes (USA made Ti) and build up my new front wheel (to a stripped and polished Cult front hub).

Took photos to make a how to when I have the time!

Finally decided to investigate my severely dragging bb on my FBM. Pulled out the left bb cup to find rusty water in the bb shell and my inboard bearing on the left side was seized. Thankfully I had a usable Euro in my old cruiser frame. Threw that in along with a new chain wheel and some stickers. Need to ride it now.

I got the old adjustable wrench out and used to to break some bent in piece off of my peg so I could get a socket in again. I was doing some icepick/wallride hybrid thing for a while, and it took it's toll on my already deformed pegs.

Sweet wheels. What's the rear being laced to?

I think I was talking to you on BMX-F earlier, If you're the same guy from fortytwobikes.

With enough lube and brute force, anything is possible.

Brakeless 2 pegs,feels different but I need to get back into grinding,brakes are off cause I'm in the process of rawing it.



Took this pic before my chain snapped on the way back from the skatepark

Fuck the cheaper cult chain,it's shit and the pins are too short so the plates get pulled off frequently.

Icepics are too much fun,I can get quite far and flatrails are nice to ice.

Same guy.

The rear is being laced to my current hub, KHE Greyhound flat (hopefully I get around to raw and polish it before I lace it up!

The gussets are awesome.  My wife has been needing my name carved into her for about a decade.

Tightened up my pedal bearings and rotated my butcher pegs then proceeded to film one clip then cruise around downtown
