As the title says. I've been lacking the motivation to ride as often as I did during the beginning of this year and all of last year. Usually, I'd at least keep my bike in decent condition and maintain it, but nowadays, I just pick it up and if it rolls ... more »

The logo's look like overkill, and the low-profile tread with less sidewall knurling makes it more of a strict park tire.
Added reply in a thread How many times should your bars spin? 1/9/2017 10:40 PM
I honestly have never ever had a problem with using multi-purpose grease inside of headset and bottom bracket bearings. My chain is super tight and I usually crank down my fork compression bolt pretty damned tight too, but they still spin a fair amount. ... more »

I just read this for the first time, and don't even get me started. If I ever got a ticket for trespassing to find a nice riding spot, my parents would never let me live it down. And I'm nearly 19 and I started riding in the late 7th/early 8th grade. ... more »

You'll be fine. Eventually, you'll find that some tricks are easier to do by correcting the direction and way you do them.

Depends on how steep the setup is. Some days, I enjoy double tire hopping into the bowl and other days, I'll try to dip my front end in first a little bit. Regardless, I go at an angle like I'm kind of going to wallride the bowl a little bit. When I ... more »

Courage Adams is someone up and coming since like 2015. The dude absolutely kills it with balance and precision on a cassette!
Added reply in a thread where the fuck is my free wheelset 12/13/2016 11:20 PM
I'm still not quite there yet. lol I'm so unmotivated to ride now, I'd literally get the wheelset and give it away to someone on here.

I ended up reverting everything back to stock... Kept the full 2.5" catback piping and got some legit Magnaflow mufflers installed. Quieter and sounds decent. I also have a 6000k HID conversion that blinds everyone and I can't do much, but imo, it's ... more »

Anyways, it's been 3+ months with the full catback exhaust and I've gotta say, it was a weird battle. Without silencers, it was really nice sounding, except it was way too loud with a lot of droning and I felt like it gave me somewhat crappier gas mileage. ... more »

Considering my hesitant nature, pretty much any session I don't each major shit on, I'll consider that at least a decent or okay riding session.
Added reply in a thread Getting into cars... 7/28/2016 7:51 PM
Lol, that's literally me. I know it's rice, but it's all I had. I installed the silencers yesterday and it's much quieter and drones way less, but sounds like dual coffee cans. There's only like 4-5 legit catback exhaust systems made for my car, and ... more »
Added reply in a thread Mixed opinions on coaster greasing? 6/27/2016 9:50 PM
I think lithium grease is too thin, if we're speaking about like that white lithium stuff. Get some thick stuff. It'll be real nice once it breaks in. You just won't be able to do crankflips. haha My only problem that I hate.
Added reply in a thread Bearing Advice V2 6/1/2016 11:26 PM
Clean all the extra grease around the bearing shell and it should be fine, assuming you don't ride trails/dirt and don't go launching your bike full on into water. If you're really paranoid, then get some big clear tape and put a strip over that side ... more »
Added reply in a thread Shorter cranks 5/30/2016 12:14 AM
I never really felt the difference from 175mm to 170mm. Odd..Maybe if I went all the way down to 165mm or even a crazy 160mm, then maybe. But I think the standard 175 should be fine. I've ridden them for years until like a year ago. Plus, I don't even ... more »
Added reply in a thread Glass Innertube Puncture Problems 5/30/2016 12:12 AM
I've never really used genuine Slime tubes, they're just too expensive and too heavy. Self-sealing tubes are somewhat affordable if that's all they have at the store. Otherwise, I've gone all the way up to 3 cut up old tubes wrapped around my main tube ... more »
