Added reply in a thread Front Load VS. Top Load 1/23/2017 2:10 PM

I feel like I'm the only one who still rides a front load stem. I don't need my bars to be up taller than I am. My current stem (Odyssey Hawk 02) is a 53mm reach with a 7.5mm rise. I'm not too picky on those things as long as they're very similar cause ... more »

Added reply in a thread anyone know pedals that can be safely removed from their spindles? 1/20/2017 2:19 PM

The nuts are so tight because they're "jam nuts" meaning they have a nut behind the nut, making them pretty damn tight and hard to get off sometimes. You should be able to swap almost any pedal body over to the other spindle. I've done it before for ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sebastian Keep - "Walls" 1/18/2017 6:22 PM

Added reply in a thread Weird Chain Issue 1/17/2017 3:36 PM

Couple issues could be the problem here. Is your sprocket bent? Check that when you spin it. Even if it looks bent, it could just be because you tightened the sprocket bolt first, THEN the crank bolts. Loosen everything up, tighten the crank bolts, THEN ... more »

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Thunderbolt Socket Drive Cranks 1/17/2017 3:28 PM

Not really, other than the fact that you'll have to stay with socket drive for as long as you have the parts. Which could be an issue if they stop making socket drive sprockets and you break yours or something. Other than that, what pnj said.

Added reply in a thread female axle vs male axle 1/17/2017 1:42 PM

Hollow/solid 14mm are definitely not weaker than 3/8" female. I don't understand why people think that. I've had my 14mm male axle cassette for 4 years now, still perfectly straight, while in less time than I've had that I've bent a few 3/8" female bolts ... more »

Added reply in a thread Animal Akimbos or Odyssey Thunderbolts? 1/16/2017 6:37 PM

Thunderbolts are ridiculously easy to put on & take off. When I had my Akimbos, they were a pain to get on at first even with a ton of grease. My Thunderbolts slid right on. Not to mention not needing to make sure the splines are lined up (which ... more »

Akimbos still have the pedal falling off issue lololol

Added reply in a thread Best hub for street abuse. 1/14/2017 11:27 PM

I would get hex bolts personally. Also if you order through a local bike shop, they can probably get you Cult Match hubs in purple too. They hold up very well with grinding. If you do choose to get the Profiles though, get hub guards for sure. I recommend ... more »

The FitnessGram Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly but gets faster each minute ... more »

Added reply in a thread Shoes 1/13/2017 7:20 PM

Does Lotek even make shoes anymore? They haven't come out with new models in quite some time, and their in stock shoes are almost completely gone on Tipplus & mail orders. Really hope they come out with some new ones soon.

Added reply in a thread Lower back pain. Need help. 1/12/2017 7:00 PM

Did you also have sciatica as well? My bulging disc was pressing right on it giving me the worst pain of my life all down my left leg. Shit sucked so damn bad. But yeah hamstring stretches do wonders. I didn't bother doing them at first cause I didn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Lower back pain. Need help. 1/12/2017 8:29 AM

I have a herniated disc in my lower back (L5, S1) and hamstring stretches & core strengthening saved my life basically. Try that. Look up on Google some exercises, avoid sit ups though they'll just make it worse. Also improve your posture and the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Beginner BMX 1/9/2017 8:06 PM

For that kind of money, search your local craigslist for a used custom. You can sometimes find really good bikes on there for around that price. My vote for a new complete bike goes to the Kink Whip Hamlin. It's $420, but worth the extra cash. It's full chromoly ... more »
