What type of steerer? Should be able to install a new starnut.
Thanks Street Rider, that's exactly what I was thinking as I was comparing the 2 frame sets. Gonna most likely go with the 20" for sure.
I've a got a question that hopefully one of you guys with more experience can help me with. I am interested in building up a BMX bike to mess around on. I'd like to hit some street, dirt and park....
I vote rear brake is not necessary in this case, but it can't hurt.
Today I did a 20 mile ride in this disgusting NYC heat.
I agree with Calv, try a longer stem. You could also keep your current stem and get a set of bullhorn handlebars to try and stretch you out a little more. Bike fit is a very personal thing, it seems...
I never ran an X2 on the track for that exact reason, X4 all the way. I just prefer a 4 bolt system. Spreads the load over a wider area and just seems stiffer to me. The X2 always looked a little...
All bars flex to some extent. I'm a big guy (6'2", 220) ride both casually and race track (if that matters at all). IMO if you are just riding around casually or for fitness I wouldn't worry too ...
Chelsea Bikes, will make you a custom frame.
Is that even english? i didn't understand one word of that, except for the Powers.
Ahh, the Intrepdid! Had family in town and took them there last Friday. Did you check out the space shuttle while you were around there?
Rule of thumb here in NYC, make sure your bike is harder to steal than the bike next to yours.
Make sure to check and grease/re-grease everything. Pretty much everything comes assembled without any grease whatsoever. (except for oddly enough crank bolts)
Received my first order today. Arrived perfect, Thanks!!
I move furniture for a living and completely agree with this statement.
All this bickering over frame material, when the OP is just trying to purchase his first budget fixed gear. OP, don't over think it. Purchase the bike you like the best and get the better deal on....
I agree with ddeadserios. Currently, your bike looks classy (minus the jackass brake setup & unwrapped track drops)
get some classic drop road bars & wrap them, get some foot retention and ditch the...
IRO sells their MARK V forks online. I am sure if you contact them, they would sell you a replacement Angus fork and headset. Tell them what size frame you have and they will be able to cut and...
Between the slightly wider Q-Factor, sluggish stock BB, and the fact that changing rings on the fly was such a PIA, I ditched SRAM cranks and went back to my Suginos.
Porn must be in the eyes of the beholder with that one, huh.
People riding bikes that do not fit them properly has more to do with the knee pain than riding fixed does.
How much post is left in the frame? Looks sketchy to me.
What bikes are you riding? I would think the geometry, tubing, etc. of the frame would also factor into ride quality.
I've been locking up in NYC for years without issue. (knocks on wood) If I am going out with friends (movie, drinks, errands, etc.) I will lock up with a U-Lock and a cable for the front wheel. If I...
