Bike do's and dont's

Is it better or stronger to have straight laced spokes or is it better to have cross laced spokes?

Is odysseys new hazard lites weaker than there older models and are they made in japan now?

Does anyone know what 'brake burn' is and will it happen with hombre u brake pads and a odyssey hazard light chrome rim?

Are odyssey slic cables better than Odyssey linear slic cables and do the linear cables have a straight black inner wire and do they explode at the top near the brake lever?

Do you think a We the people bold frame is better than the Hoffman Bama frame?

Do you think a Demolition Anorexia back hub is better than a Primo back hub?

Cross

Not sure, probably not

I think brake burn is where the paint comes off the rims so it won't happen on a chrome but i've never heard that phrase before. The chrome may flake though

Linear slics are the better ones, therefore more expensive. Do not get the slic.

Hoffman Bama Hands Down

I love my primo but i've never ridden a demolition

1. Cross
2. The rims or the hubs? Asuming your talking about the rims hazard lights are really strong. i do think theyre made overseas but that doesnt matter.
3. Never heard the pgrase but i dont think it matters.
4. Linear Slics are stronger and smoother IMO than the slics. and they dont bind up.
5. Bama
6. I love my demolition but ive never rode a primo. theyre pretty reliable, though.

Crossed.
I believe they're the same.
I've only heard that when I was racing DH, I don't know if it applies to BMX's.
Linears.
Bama.
I've heard good things about each hub.

1. 3cross.
2. Get a 7kA and you'll be fine.
3. I would assume thats where your pads leave resude on your rims. And it probly wont happen.
4. Linear is the best. And they wont explode or collapse the housing as long as you don't throw your bike or if you tape the cable by the barrel adjuster or put a zip tie or string on your bars so that the cable can't move too much.
5. Hoffman Bama hands down.
6. Primo hub.
