I find that sometimes, I'll have to bitch crank for a particular trick, and on a freecoaster, the slack almost totally prevents you from doing that in any other less efficient manner. Plus, cassette hubs set you up and keep you stabilized as you go backwards. ... more »

Dammit, I thought this guy was forreals. For the times I do get to, I finally get to express my knowledge on random things. What a waste..

What does that mean? I live in an area where I can safely manage my bike. Even if there was snow, humidity, etc. I'd expect almost the same.

Grease should always just go on the pawls, never the ratchet ring if anything. And for hubs, oil is always optimal. Getting it all into the ring, pawl pockets, pawls, etc. the whole internal.

If you can consistently land you front foot on the pedal first (which is how you really land whip tricks), then all you really need is practice to get your back foot on. And if you land both feet and the bike over-rotates, you might wanna start practicing ... more »

As long as your hub is properly oiled or whatever, it should be fine. With most of my individual-springed hubs, I always end up stretching the sping a bit more, but the oil makes it quiet, so I stopped caring too much.

I'll try to take pictures, and maybe you could show me with some crappy paint drawings or something? lol Not really a big guy of having to mod guitars.

Ahhhhh, we have a person here who is like-minded. You're interested in astral projection, meditation, etc.? It's really all up to you. Just talking about it already puts doubt in my mind. I really do think that astral projection is possible. But then ... more »

Anything will work, good condition, etc. I would really love the Daily Grind ones if anyone has one for sale.

Run some white lithium in your bearings because it's like diluted and it really helps the bearings spin quicker. And you can lube the shit out of your ratchet ring, driver, driver-o-ring, etc. Apart from that, that's really about all you can do. My Gsport ... more »

Added reply in a thread Double Spring BMX hub 1/25/2015 9:17 PM

Only really way I did it was to get another spring from a different hub. Then again, wrap-over springs come on more lower-end hubs, so that would just make the hub you're getting it from totally useless, unless you can find a junk one that will actually ... more »

Added reply in a thread Need a new hub 1/21/2015 11:05 PM

Yeah.. They discontinued for a reason. I got one for the hype about a good 4-5 months ago and totally regret it. It was even the newer models, too. The drive side collar wears out oddly for some reason, especially on 9t. And I feel like something was ... more »

Added reply in a thread Primo Axle on Cult Match? 1/20/2015 1:15 AM

The only thing I hate is how some hubs are made with different flange sizes. It seriously pisses me off to have to get 2 sets of different spokes, let alone happening to only have one set and end up with longer spokes. That's how my Gsport hub was and ... more »
