It's been so damn long since I've made a bike check. And I've acquired a load of parts in the process which never sold. I then put them together into a spare bike. Yes, things here and there do make my OCD nuts, like my Gsport rims with the rear flipped

The person that rides like better be riding it for flatland so they don't get made fun of. Otherwise, it'd probably be some dude tryna be cool, so he'd be considered a "little bitch".

Oh, and I have the problem of getting grease from the back of my leg making contact with the sprocket. I got a guard sprocket and that problem was solved up until I started running a regular sprocket..

God, no. Not for me. Every time I decide that it's too uncomfortable to wear jeans, I end up wearing shorts occasionally and then shit happens to my legs.

Welp, looks like I somehow didn't get enough time to get all the clips I wanted to, so no Vital edit this time, sadly..

How? Black is like as natural and common as bike colors get, excluding "raw" as a natural color.

Added reply in a thread Scooters. 9/12/2014 1:46 AM
Learning how to ride bikes made starting off scooters WAY easy. I got some 180's and nearly 3's on the very first day I rode a scooter. Took me like a few minutes to learn sketchy barspins, and about an hour to learn direct deck stalls and slides/feebles, ... more »

Yeah, I don't know why, but for spins, cracks and stuff in the ground surface make me really uneasy. I'll tend to bail out of it or do it half-assed, unless I try my hardest not to notice the ground, which isn't easy.

So yeah.. Just went back to an OCD thread I made a good 2 years ago, and realized that it's even worse than before and I've found out certain things. Apart from having a dialed bike, things outside of that also affect my riding. I mean, I'm still sorta ... more »

Added reply in a thread Just made me an order. Any tips for the parts. 9/11/2014 11:39 PM
Yes, for the love of god. You have brand new cranks AND a spline drive, so put WAAYYY more grease than you need, and plan out to ride them for at least a month to break in the splines.

Do you have PayPal? Text me at 916-259-5640. And you have all the parts to the headset? Dust cover, top race, bottom race (optional)?
Added reply in a thread Broke Ezra Freecoaster Bearings 9/11/2014 12:47 AM
If you have money to spend, I'd definitely go to a bike shop to have them use a bearing puller as that's as accurate as it gets. Apart from that, it's incredibly difficult to do so without making your own tools or using stuff like screwdrivers..

I meant for females, haha. Compared to males, there's obviously no chance. I'm just saying all girls usually start off riding park and use that to their advantage. It really does help.

The new profile "Z coaster", named after the z-shaped internals, switches from a freecoaster to a cassette with one spacer. Wonder how that works? Couldn't really find much on it except for FB, which wasn't really in-depth at all. And knowing Profile's

Girls tend to dominate in mainly park riding. I guess it sets you up more easier and transitions you to progress quicker, etc. Learning full on street, and note that with a lot of flat land, doesn't really provide you much, anything if all, really.
Started new thread In need of an integrated headset 9/9/2014 11:33 PM
Anything works as long as the bearings are still in good condition with all the seals intact and having all the headset parts. I would also like a separate integrated crown race as I'm throwing this onto some 07' Sunday Night forks.

Added reply in a thread hub lacing question. think I'd run into problems? 9/9/2014 11:31 PM
That doesn't really look like much of a big difference, maybe like a mm give or take, so usually take the give option. Worst comes to worse, spokes would be long be a max of a mm and you might have to run another rim strip to be safe.
