Reply to Short frames, good read 4/16/2019 11:39 AM

I’ve rode frames from 19.5 to 20.4 as far as smaller frames go. They spin nice, manual and tailwhip nice. But made barspins harder and didn’t have a lot of room. Smaller frames aren’t bad

Reply to Old school vs mid vs new 4/15/2019 7:26 AM

I agree 2004-2012 was around the best. I would enjoy riding a nice mid school MacNeil Ruben, low bars, frontload stem. From time to time for fun. i Liked mid school riding and the bikes looked cool. But new technology is better. Around the 2008-2012 ... more »

Reply to Fit Hood Bird bars 4/12/2019 4:17 PM

Also on rubens. Kind of want a taller set up so I might switch to wethepeople pathfinders. The 9.6 don’t look nearly as huge as all the other bars of that size. Most of these bars can’t be run under 28 I’ve learned Most big bars look awful lol

They’re good. I’ve had an elite back hub, 2 or 3 sets of minis, the old SS hubs and Maderas.

I’ve got a pair of country 835 bars with the same drilled out spots. I remember the MacNeil xlts. I always wanted a MacNeil Ruben lol and their seats were the best.

Hurt my feet trying a bunch of hop whips. I hate this trick haha Also rode the skatepark but it was wack since there’s no one to really ride with or talk to there haha.

Total used to be Unknown bike co. They made frames that were park frames that weighed around 3.5-3.75 lb. I know they were sub 4 lb frames. Then they changed to total.

I’m riding a MacNeil frame currently lol

Reply to Costs to ship a frame? 4/5/2019 2:29 PM

I’ve shipped probably 20-25 frames. Never paid more than like 26 bucks. And that was Ohio to Florida iirc

Reply to Tricks you have never got down pack in your time riding 4/5/2019 12:35 PM

180 barspins. I can do them but I throw the way I spin so my bike tilts a lot.

Forks, stem and cranks sold Still have bars and frames

Reply to New Federal Hamilton ICS Frame! Thoughts? 4/2/2019 7:23 PM

If it had a shorter back end I’d maybe get one. I always liked the fraction frame lol and always liked riding short frames. If I didn’t do barspins I’d still ride a 20-20.4 top tube

Reply to Tailwhip help 4/1/2019 7:25 PM

Yeah I did them similar to that style. I don’t know how people do that weird bent back leg thing. That’s like a park flyout thing maybe idk. But I still landed front foot first I would aim for that and the back would just kind of follow right after. ... more »

Reply to Tailwhip help 4/1/2019 6:57 PM

Go for your front pedal more don’t worry so much about the back just kinda get it on something. Just really commit to landing on it somehow. Make sure you go high enough too.

I looked at the federal wheels with the xl rim. They look cool but weigh too much lol

Reply to Bunch of stuff for sale 3/31/2019 11:16 AM

Reply to To good to be true? 3/27/2019 9:41 AM

Most of those are old stock or cheap budget parts that’s why they’re so cheap

Reply to Outdated Bmx Habits 3/27/2019 9:39 AM

This is the best post lol. I agree bikes look stupid as fuck now. Most of the bikes I see don’t even feel or look like bmx bikes but more like big mountain bikes. I personally don’t care what people ride but choosing bike parts sucks now lol because ... more »

I can still do the side tuck technique but that feels like shit haha. It mostly effects hop 3s for me
