All right, so one more question about the rear wheel. So in my browsing around and things i came across, i guess, replacement drivers. Would it be possible to get this odyssey driver and remove the current LHD and replace with another 10T RHD?

I don't actually know at all, but my suspicion would be that a LHD driver would have a reversed interface to the hub, and so wouldn't be interchangeable with a RHD driver or hub.

cant change it. the hub shell has grooves sliced in where the pawls on the driver catch to make it spin...if you put an opposite side driver in there, its gonna do nothing but spin. good luck getting anywhere with that.

I've never had a pair of U-brakes either, so I don't know how to set them up.

u-brakes are pretty easy to set up, and kind of easy to keep nice and tight. mine broke real easy though.

Is there anything wrong with the DK 6pack? Any reason I shouldn't get one?

I just found this thread, and think this would be a better place to place my questions.

I fished a little on craigslist and found several cheap used BMX to my interest and budget range, can someone tell me which one should I get? (I'm 175cm, 5,7 feet by the way)



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/mss/bik/1072183057.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/mss/bik/1110227139.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/mss/bik/1108569549.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/bra/bik/1108382377.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/bik/1108038992.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/bik/1106748604.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/yrk/bik/1094483766.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/mss/bik/1050545818.html



http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/bik/1049909775.html



Out of all these selections which one should I get for freestyle, stunt, beater/very durable one?



I don't really want to spend too much money since I already have a fixed gear bike.



Really appreciate your helps!

Those are all basically garbage. The GT Bestwick pro is okay, and the hoffman isnt tooo bad, but id keep looking.

So any suggestions for me? I'm really stuck here, as I have no clue where to look

I checked craigslist but didn't find any around my area where I can test ride...

Any quality bikes able to handle freestyle and durable for the price range of $100-200?

Please help and thank you.

No, nothing brand new at least. You'll need about $350 for something solid. Or buy one of those 6 packs from last year ^^^

Hi everyone!

I'm started riding when I was 15 or so, i got a Dragonfly Mission back then. After a 2 year break i'm pikking up riding again and well my bike just isn't in it's best shape to say the least. I'm looking for a new one in $800 price range i think.

I'm 6,4' tall and weigh around 170 pounds.

I've been looking at Wethepeople and Fit bikes, but i really don't know what to get.

I will be riding park most of the time (the closest skatebark is a bowl http://www.concretedisciples.com/ska...ay.php?id=3676 )

Thank you!

I'd say you're going to want something 20.75" or longer for the TT. Personally, if I had that budget I'd go with the WTP Envy. With that you have 2 options for TT length as well, 20.75" and 21.25". May want to go to your lbs and test out some bikes just to get the size that feels good for you.
