    color spokes? shadow conspiracy vs. primo

    anyone have good/bad experiences with either of these spokes?
    or have a better idea for white spokes without having to powder coat myself.
    will use for racing.

    I'm getting the blue Primo ones. Unless there's better ones that are colored and not Ti.

    ^ I have blue and white ones on my back wheel. I have not broke any, but I've slammed them into ledges and it barely bent them.
    But Primos have been around longer so go with those.

    I have a full set of primo spokes on my wheel set and haven't had the need to be trued since I have gotten them, which has been well over a year ago. I would actually look into finding a great bike shop who has a good reputation in building bmx wheel sets (mine took two weeks to build at a local one called Bike King). Then again my wheel set is more than enough to buy fuzzy rider's whole bike setup brand spankin' new! ^^ HAHAHAHa. Listen to him on your own discretion.

    And this is where I purchased my Black Pearl Limited.

    And I've also known the owner since the day I was born.

    That's funny. I was drooling for that bike also. Joey showed it to you, right? Joey kicks a^% on building wheel sets plus the service was on point. How much did you end up buying your black pearl?

    I guess we can officially ignore fuzzwad "The know all" about anything he has to say and just between those who are actually interested in the contribution to this thread. Without further a due do you have a 20inch sniks? Or do you intend in building your own race bike. Wheel set is a definitely great idea to start up with, sniks. You intend to go sealed with flip flop or cassette to go with? Along with those sweet Primos.

    first thing's first, when it come's to frames...
    how tall are you?
    how much do you weight?
    what size are you most comfortable with?
    the last of the three takes reign over those two though I would say...
    then go from there.... personally though... Redman's WAY to expensive...

    5'8" 210lbs
    i like my 21.5" top tube 24 crusier frame a Staats thats a few years old that i just bought used. but i haven't had a change to ride much other stuff. a kuwahara cruiser with i liked and a redline pl24 which i did not like.
    and as far as cost goes this stuff is cheap compared to fixed gear and road bike stuff. i sold a wheel sets and beat fixed gear for finance my cruiser build

    i'm leaning more towards the formula for the looks and a few reviews any input?
    this is my cruiser

    Thanks for the useful contribution to this thread, Balutboi Pheonix. Those considerataions are truly important.

    Nice cruiser, sniks. How does those Shimano cranks feel? With the profile hubs and Primos will be a sweet set of wheels.

    To be honest with you I feel comfortable with a shorter toptube on a 20" against I ride with a 24" Do you want to ride a shorter, same top tube, longer top tube this time? I hope you will feel lots of bikes in the track to justify that. Also do you want to try cromoly or go with aluminum frame? I like both, but I just very ignorant to leave 4130 and American made is a plus. I forgot, I have a soft spot for frames that takes conventional cup headsets.

    fetish is somewhat distasteful and bulky for my liking. I swear I tried to like it but I just can't haha. Redman Just like Balutboi Pheonix says. It is too expensive, especially for aluminum.

    Although, I have no real experiences in the feel of these bikes. The links that I provided are the brands that I would honestly try.

    However, I do have a feeling how they feel like just by reading the spec sheets. All I know that you like a 21.5 top tube.

    Aluminum:

    your tips are one liners, they are never thorough, plus you always put an abrasive attitude towards peoples' opinions or statements. Probably, if you use a much more subtle approach people like me or of the older crowd would even consider listening to you. There, now you know why I have an animosity against you.

    Well you obviously haven't read most of what i have to say then. I only give ***** one liners to questions that deserve them, or simply when all you need is a one liner. When people want me to elaborate i do if i already haven't. if you think i have an abrasive attitude then maybe you should look at 80% of the kids on here who need a wake up call or to just use their damn heads and common sense, and then try to understand why i give some of the answers i do. I never had a teacher or a bike forum when i was younger to teach me everything i know. I learn't 95% of the stuff i know from doing it myself. I've been working on my own bikes since i was about 10, and thats the best way to learn. Just do it yourself, take your bike apart and rebuild it a few times so you know how everything works and then ask questions and find out the little hints and tips to make the process simpler after you already understand things. I can't stand all the kids that come on here without a damn clue and a question for everything. Maybe if they would get their lazy asses of the computer and experiment a little bit they wouldn't have so many stupid annoying common sense questions, and then i wouldn't have to use one liners as often and make people like you think i have some crap attitude. I enjoy giving advice and helping people with the knowledge that i have, but some of these kids deserve the one liners. You don't exactly help matters either by just fueling these kids idiocy by just starting some ridicules internet beef....

    well, i see where both of you are coming from, but my idea is...
    if what you say doesn't help in the matter, just keep your silence...

    “Choose silence of all virtues, for by it you hear other men's imperfections, and conceal your own.”

    - George Bernard Shaw

    I have actually read majority of your posts. I will admit I like the comment about the inflatable tube thread. When you have said that a tube that holds air is best. Another one was about starting on a heavier bike and then get a lighter bike once a riders' ability gets better. Especially, taking apart a bicycle yourself is the best teacher. You see you do have the capabilities of putting up great opinions. Opinions that I , myself can agree on.

    The rest, well that was what tarnished your reputation. As for the easily answered posts, just leave them alone and let them figure it out. I do that all the time.

    balutboi pheonix---agreed.

    I'll chime in here on fuzzyryder. I agree some question can get annoying.when asked over and over.
    but the forums are here to ask questions even if they are dumb. the internet is changing the world.
    I have been working on my bike since I was a 5th grader and I work on my own bike. but we don't all know it all. and as an adult with kid and two business I don't have time to try everything out myself out the money to be rebuilding wheels after I put crappy spokes in. I wish I did.

    so have a little more tolerance and offer more info.
    if you really want to start some ****e go to the fixed gear forum and check out their stupid ass questions sometimes the same one every few hours.

    thanks for everyones help and input.
    if you want to know ANYTHING about hair or fixed gears I can help you out but with the changes in bmx these day I got some questions.

    Its no fun to not comment... anyways in my opinion the internet is changing the world for the worse. Kids can't even fend for themselves now a days and they are mouthy stupid brats that have no repect for their elders, have their whole lives on a PC and can't figured out how to put a bmx bike together, like comon are you serious... unfortunately. Also, I'm really not to concerned about my reputation over the internet... I'm going to speak my mind for the most part and if i think some kid deserves a crap answer to their crap question that they could just as easyly figure out on their own by using the thing in their head called a BRAIN! Then I'm going to.

    I have to agree with you here.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
