My first wheels just didn't last very long, mostly from insuffficiant spoke tension...

Caveat: I don't ride BMX.

Bottom line: If you care about this wheel, then I would recommend taking it to an LBS for them to finish it off.

That is all.

"Listen, I pay taxes for the roads and I don't appreciate that you try to monopolize them with your giant chunk of steel and that you block MY road. Get off your giant fume box and go on the sidewalk."

Buses are the worst. They don't go to the other side so they're like 5 in from your face, and they honk their horn.

There are plenty of reasons to be me. One just happens to be being overly sexy.

It's called kidding around. You were a kid once... I think.

What's with people from other sections suddenly coming into the bmx section? They always seem to say something negative...

Well if you plan to stick around a bit you will realize that we like to joke around a lot.

I'm very proud of you for riding BMX.

Nah, we've had problems with a few jerks from other parts of the forums coming in and acting like dickbags.
