    Wow. How much would that cost Minichamp31. The wheel set i want right now is.
    Shadow Rant Front Hub
    Demolition Zero Rim
    14G Spokes
    The $4 nipples
    Shadow Rant V2 Cassete with the same set up.
    It's like $364 or something.

    Accually i changed my mind. Instead of the Demolition Rims i would get the Animal LM rims in purple with purple hubs to match my purple scheme.

    If I only had a Profile cassette hub, it would do as well.

    Street Rider, that's how you have to learn it.
    Your going to get sick of a freecoaster. My friend almost bought one just so he didn't have to learn fakie.
    It's a essential of bmx...

    ive pretty much learned it, it just takes too long to learn and its too hard to remember to backpedal cause my mind is pretty much set on landing the trick in the first place. plus theres so much more that can be done with a freecoaster, and ive wanted to try one out for a loooooooooooong time.

    No becuase shadow hubs are garbage, and the rant cassette has driver issues and they blow up all the time.

    Ok, let me stop you there.
    This is a serious trap most people (including myself) fall into when buying a freecoaster.
    Freecoasters are by no means easier than cassettes to fakie on, if anything I found it harder to learn fakie stuff.
    If you haven't yet, try and get your hands on a coaster, or take your chain off (not quite the same but will do).
    Also, freecoasters will almost certainly give you more trouble maintainance wise than a cassette.

    Kinetics Rant, not Gunz.

    Yeah that's fair enough.
    All i'm saying is, try to get your hands on one, just to play around on for like a week, if you can.

    Maybe ones that could teach you to use a question mark? Oh wait, they don't exist.

    Don't put any money into sporting goods store bikes. It's just a waste of time.
    Oh noes!

    I'm pretty sure that I learned to remember right after the first time I smashed the back of my head into the ground. If you didn't get a concussion, you weren't going fast enough.
