I remember them. Almost bought their frame when I was just starting out, only cause it was orange & I liked the color haha. Opted for the Sunday though. Friend of mine snapped their forks clean off at the bottom of the steerer tube though

*Fit fans be like "No I'm not asking information. I got to try a WIFI complete the other day at the skatepark. It was honestly the most dialed bike I've ever ridden. Everything felt amazing. I noticed the frame was instantly responsive , the headtube ... more »

Any sources on that? Not calling bullshit or being a dick haha, just I don't remember Rich being the owner of Primo. I know all 3 of those including a few other brands are distributed in the same place (Tipplus) but I don't think Rich owns Primo. I know ... more »

Pretty much. Anyone remember this thing? http://www.albes.com/browseproducts/PREMIUM--LOWPEZ-LT--FRAME.html

This 200x Premium is just more popular because of Chad Kerley putting his name on everything, but you couldn't pay me to ride a Premium part. Unless we're talking thousands of dollars, then I'd take the money, snap the part after about 3 hours, then ... more »

No. Those companies are just distributed by the same place, just like Cult & Primo have a relationship, Stranger & Primo have one as well, but they are not the same. More like how Odyssey ties in with G-Sport, but the two companies are still ... more »

Fiend is distributed/owned by Blackout bmx, not Tipplus

Mirraco C-Low, did a little Googling to find that out haha. But he could get the S&M Cymbal for the front, that one just slides on. It's also $40 though, and for $40 you can easily find a used pair of forks from someone.

The last time I saw a fork snap in the center of the steerer tube was never, because every other company doesn't put a cutout in the middle of them. It might not make it snap, but it's guaranteed to be weaker in that area. Just because it's been done ... more »

I didn't mind it when I had a frame with welded mounts. Some people hate it though and like the clean look of no mounts. Removable mounts in my opinion is just fine, if they aren't shitty. I had 0 problems with my Sunday mounts and they didn't get stuck ... more »

Then they would have to make more frames, and some of them wouldn't sell, then they'd be stuck with more frames with brake mounts since the majority of riders (here at least) ride brakeless. They'd be losing out on money by not selling the frames with ... more »

You'll probably need a new hub, or at least axle, too. A lot of times when the dropout bends, it takes the axle with it too, so now both are bent. If that's the case, when you get new forks, your front wheel will sit in the dropouts weird. Not a big ... more »

It sucks though, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Seth losing all that stuff isn't shitty.

2 Motorcycles, bike parts, and some other possessions. Not everything. The motorcycles I'm pretty sure are what accounted for most of the cost because I read it was around 20 grand.

Added reply in a thread Bent dropout. 10/22/2014 5:59 PM

You need a new fork. Bending it back will just weaken the metal. And before you ask, Odyssey or Sunday forks are the way to go /thread.

I don't know much about what happened to the cat, but I understand it NEEDED surgery. You can live without possessions, but who knows if that cat would have many years without the surgery. Live > possessions, no matter if it's an animal or human. ... more »

The Stranger is basically a Cult Match v2 with beefed up flanges. Which honestly, if you run a hub guard, fucking the flanges up shouldn't be an issue anyway. If you don't use a hub guard, the Stranger would be able to handle anything you dish out at ... more »

I grind A LOT, so does my one friend with the 7 year old Mix, and neither of our axles are bent at all. Don't get the Remix though. the axle is a lot more hollow & the bearings are smaller & shittier. Match or Match v2 is the way to go

Added reply in a thread Hub recommendations 10/21/2014 11:03 PM

Cult Match > Profile any day. With Profile, you're paying twice as much just for a loud hub that will develop a wobble after awhile. Cult Match will hold up to whatever you throw at it. Mine's 2 years old now with no issues, and it's the same thing ... more »
