Added reply in a thread What’s up with eastern? 2/14/2020 1:56 PM

I honestly wouldn't put Eastern as one of the top brands anymore...Once they had the frame issues (much of that was people legit ignoring warnings, misuse, and the fact that they were among the first to offer super light stuff). They have (for the most ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bar Whip Crankflip... 2/14/2020 4:05 AM

I did it on Dave Mirra 2 a lot back in the day. But like others said, probably been done by accident by the handful that can do it, but it would add another level of difficulty.

Added reply in a thread Skateparks in Wisconsin that allow bikes 2/13/2020 10:01 AM

If you want indoor and you are close to the MN border, 3rd lair is one of like 2. You can also hit Over the Top (I think they are still around) in Zumbro Falls, or go to Mankato YMCA park.

Added reply in a thread Haro sued over website accessibility 2/13/2020 9:57 AM

Yes, it should have been corrected/caught by Haro before publishing the site/going live or whatever. BUT, is it a cash grab to haul them into court as a first step? Or would letting them know first/asking for accommodation and THEN if it is not fixed ... more »

Added reply in a thread What in the hell Haro? 2/13/2020 9:42 AM

Honestly these throwbacks are more for nostalgia than anything. I doubt most of the people buying up the "classic" throwbacks are actually sessioning super hard on em. Sure there are exceptions to that, but many of the older riders locally to me collect ... more »

Added reply in a thread Odyssey grandstands loosen themselves 2/13/2020 9:38 AM

I've been running the same set of Grandstands for about 3 years...the axle loosened so the body of the pedal rattled a couple times, but never loosened in the cranks.

Ride more. Fear lessens with experience, experience comes with time.

Added reply in a thread Stripping anodized rims 2/13/2020 9:35 AM

Oven cleaner does work from friends experience, BUT I hear if you leave too much on/soak it too long it might pit the alloy a bit. You could also carefully sand/polish the hub. But the Blue and gold DO go together and if done well, can look awesome.

Added reply in a thread Haro sued over website accessibility 2/12/2020 6:02 AM

Seems like a cash grab to me. My first question is, did the guy contact them to ask for accommodation/alert them and get denied? Kinda looks like he jumped right into a lawsuit upon discovery of the issue knowing fully that he would likely walk away ... more »

Added reply in a thread What in the hell Haro? 2/12/2020 5:54 AM

Definitely an overreaction in my book. Haro, much like MANY companies across many industries, is doing a throwback because they KNOW that much of the clientele from that era are a bunch of old farts (in many cases with money) working on reliving their ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hello again BMX people 2/12/2020 5:47 AM

Laid off? Any unemployment benefits to get you by or was the layoff actually being fired for conduct etc? (not trying to be that guy, I've seen people say laid off to soften it to others when they just sucked as a person and got canned). Usually if a ... more »

I have seen em chrome on amazon. I might snag up a pair...what are you looking to get for em?

I love my bluebird. Been going strong for like 4 years now.

Added reply in a thread Vital Forum Edit (V5) 2/11/2020 4:52 AM

You guys have awesome weather and places to ride, and I am super jealous of that. I have like 2 feet of snow and nothing to ride but MAYBE my basement, if I move all my kids toys and stuff. I have a rad idea for an edit this year though, so if I can ... more »

Added reply in a thread The term "Custom" 2/11/2020 3:59 AM

Maybe it's cause it is before 6 am and I am at work, or that I am running on like 4 hours sleep in the last 36 hours...but Laird welds the Mongoose teams' frames...so this becomes WAY funnier as a result.

Added reply in a thread Front Brakes!!! 2/7/2020 4:28 AM

I'm rocking front stoppers on an Odyssey Flatland fork that is about 12 years old. Good times.

Added reply in a thread Opinions on Guettler VS. Walmart & SNAFU? 2/7/2020 4:25 AM

What I take from this is, he never gave them permission TO use his likeness, but their argument is that he never said they couldn't, so they did. Him being an employee of the brands for a while makes it tough too.

Added reply in a thread Anyone ever separated their shoulder? 1/30/2020 11:00 AM

Yes, and the ER doc who had been doing his job for like 20+ years said it was the worst he had ever seen, I recall he called it a grade 5 (this was also 2004-so things might have been ranked differently). No surgery ever on it. I was stupid and figured ... more »
