Added reply in a thread Max cs of Kink Williams frame? 8/3/2020 5:51 AM

and matt nordstrom's new fit frame has two options regarding back end length. it does seem like back ends are getting a bit longer again. i do say this when the new fit shortcut frame has a 12.4'' back end haha.

Added reply in a thread 20.5 in rims with 20 in tires? 8/3/2020 5:39 AM

i was thinking he made the mistake of thinking 2.5'' tires are for 20.5'' rim but i doubt there'd be 2.5'' tires on a a haro complete stock, who knows.

those parts look genuine, as i did say if you can i'd recommend actual photos of the bike in more detail if possible

Added reply in a thread real skavanger bike ? 8/2/2020 3:00 PM

maybe ask the owner for more pictures and a picture of the serial number to see if it is one. but i do see what looks to be some good parts on that bike.

this is just me being an odyssey nut but i'd say odyssey is better in my opinion but both are good freecoasters and should do you well.

your rims aren't 20.5 inches. how do you know/think they are? any bmx tires will fit your bmx wheel.

happy you found a bike man. that's also a killer bike too so big congrats!

Added reply in a thread Another annoying help me build a bike question 7/28/2020 7:08 AM

that is quite pricy, however it has got some very parts on it. maybe keep it as a last resort kind of thing if nothing else comes up.

any pics of this bike? got some super solid parts on it.

Added reply in a thread Tire psi. Help 7/27/2020 2:53 PM

you should be fine at 70-75. i've ran BSD Donnasqueaks which are a minimum of like 50psi i think and i ran them at about 40psi or so and they were fine.

if you're going to do a custom build, i may have a little bit of help. i'm in the uk so it may be different but after a quick search i've found two frames that should be good for you. theres a 21.25'' total frame: https://www.bing.com/aclick?ld=e8vLpS5uvdowb4yemQPgZOWTVUCUwz4aDWs1dnrLTOBoPpb2ZuZ1SfMP6THbJwuTYnUL9ylB2bniSwO4M_6IjkvvU2GcQEUDSJUWnUoG63KzH6xypt2yGPtLQUAKgQzPVg1iDXRnD81O8zehPUNsdzRtSYnw8&u=aHR0cHMlM2ElMmYlMmZzb3VyY2VibXguY29tJTJmcHJvZHVjdHMlMmZ0b3RhbC1ibXgtdHdzLWZyYW1lJTNmdmFyaWFudCUzZDIwMDM2MDk0MDAxMjYzJTI2bXNjbGtpZCUzZDA3NmJkYzQ2ZmUxOTFlODJhNWM0ODM1ODAzYTU5ZWQw&rlid=076bdc46fe191e82a5c4835803a59ed0 ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help identifying 7/26/2020 5:40 AM

looks to be some shadow rim tape on the wheel...possibly a shadow rim or even a complete wheel but i have no idea myself.

Added reply in a thread Front hub bearings 7/25/2020 3:56 PM

does the bearing have a number on them? i remember seeing a source bmx thing that said most hub bearings have the number of their size on the bearings somewhere.

Added reply in a thread Another annoying help me build a bike question 7/25/2020 3:52 PM

oh for sure man, if you're going to do something, do it right. that bike looks good, and if the frame is a 21'' then it should be good for you. also the seller says he will service it which should help you not have to worry about any assembly problems ... more »

Added reply in a thread Another annoying help me build a bike question 7/25/2020 2:30 PM

yeah i'd say 21'' to 21.5'' should be good for you, all chromoly too, sealed bearings, any tires should do you fine if you buy them from a bmx brand, for your height i'd say 10'' bars too. if you get all the right parts then you shouldn't have to worry ... more »
