Added reply in a thread Semi sealed cassette hub trouble 10/29/2014 11:37 PM

99% of the people who run unsealed hubs never have those specific tools.

Added reply in a thread Semi sealed cassette hub trouble 10/29/2014 9:07 PM

Knowing that it's semi sealed, I assume one of the bearings obviously have to be sealed. If it's not the non-drive side or driver, then that's where things go shitty. All you can do is treat it like a totally unsealed hub and keep on fine-adjusting it. ... more »

Any cranks that are RHD/LHD compatible, lol. Cranks usually never come LHD alone (except Profile = overpriced anyways), always either RHD alone or RHD/LHD.

That's waaayyyy too much effort to go through. Knowing almost all pedals are unsealed, people who don't know anything and go to try this will also need a new set of pedals after that.

Hey, you're the one who sold me that brand new Gland and Mutiny hubguard, haha. But yeah, I have yet to try the original collar. If I do that, I have a United Squad 14mm hubguard I could just place on top. I might need to put some spacers underneath ... more »

I'm running the specific guard made just for it. I even thought about buying a used Knight one for it somewhere from here, but I also have a United Squad universal that I could place on top if I went back to running the collar.

I don't know about that but I had a friend who told me to tighten the faceplate totally closed above first before tighting the bottom side like normal. He apparently rode a Fit DLD stem the same way totally fine, so I trusted him on that. Before he told ... more »

Since I'm being a cheap ass as always, I'm looking into getting a driver hooked up for free. But I don't know the chances of that, really. I made a complete fool of myself asking for the 10t Ratchet spacer alone. They basically paid $3 and the trouble ... more »

People really tend to have bearing problems, but not me. My driver bearings have loosened quite a bit since the first few weeks of the hub brand new. Hub shell bearings are like butter even with my cranks tight as hell. Apart from that, only other issue ... more »

I have a 9t but literally nothing should be missing whatsoever.

That's the thing! It's not visible at all cause it's so small to make a huge difference, but it's annoying in person.

Started new thread Gsport Ratchet hub has been loose.. 10/27/2014 9:09 PM

As the title says. I've had it loose since day number one. Everything is properly fitted and tight, brand new, everything is there. But when I go to tighten my wheel, I end up with having the hubguard on and having it barely move, maybe up to half a ... more »

I saw you say that you'd cut spokes. Why would you do so and waste spokes..? That's what I was wondering..

Added reply in a thread I CAN'T DO 180s!!!!! 10/26/2014 9:41 PM

It's not the roll out that's the problem. It's just something besides not committing that causes my rotation to go off axis. If anything, I can definitely do fakies any way to save my life.

Added reply in a thread Whats the proper 180 technique? 10/26/2014 9:34 PM

I just NEVER ever get comfortable with spins, for the love of God.... They scare me shitless sometimes, especially after I tried to 180 a 2 foot drop after the first few months of learning 180's, where I under-rotated and hit my head on the ground a ... more »

Added reply in a thread I CAN'T DO 180s!!!!! 10/20/2014 9:25 PM

Well, just to dig this topic up because I still haven't gotten these 100%. It's just me not committing and ending up under rotating due to me being a pussy with speed. Sometimes when I pussy out after throwing the spin, my whole bike will land in a "U" ... more »
