  1. Hi on the pro 2 ive never had an issue running one for 11years now :-)..my hope pro4 hub is 6 months old and ive changed the pawl+springs two times now. The corner seem to crack of and the debris get crushed inside...first time it got sorta noisy...second time it locked up the wheel, turning my bike into a fixie....Good thing is has NEVER skipped on me..
  2. looks smooth...
  3. no 55 s fine, just get on it !!! :-) good luck
  4. How is the bike holding up ? Is feeling a lot stiffer compared to a inspired frame ?
  5. Hi been on the darkside a few years now, i ride 3-4 times a week usually one long session 4h (mainly pure trials)and 2-3 small ones 1,5 hour(street+skatepark).. main problem is HARSH landings (2m drop to flat), hang up on dirtjumps ect...other than that i do some shoulder/leg/back streching 2-3 times a week about 30min per session... i have friends in the 50's still charging...:-) so no reason to stop anytime soon...The magic trick for me seems to be warming up/ light streeching before riding 5-10min.. and loads of Coffee...
  6. i get it...explanation is fine..
  7. Hi anybody who rides 140-160mm rear rotor and has enough brake power? Just wondering if a 4 piston brake would be strong enought with smaller rotor. The bennefit would be more ground clerance. And in teory there should be less flex in rotor & less weigt..
  8. Kinda like the Black one, but not too keen on the forks, maybe a set of inspired forks would loke great on there ;-)
  9. Hi john Dont know if i have a problem ;-), just wanted to hear if there where people riding smaller rotors. im 82kg 180mm rotor & running shimano zee 4 piston brake (never slips, but i think 140-160mm could be fine to) -1 getting it out of the way i for when i bail of the bike (etc tailwhips , i tend to land behind the bike and sometime cut my leg on rotor.) -2 less flex = less change of pad rub -3 more ground clerance well gues only option is to try it out.
  10. Hi wizards im stuck at around 1 - 1,5 backwards crankturns in my fakie manuals..seems to lose all speed and balance there...i try to apply pressure on the drivetrain all there way around, is that how you guys do it or do you pedal faster so there is no braking? Any pointers are appresiated thanks in advance
  11. Looks kinda cool. Like the internal cable routing, and through axel in the back.
  12. Love you style, and great riding...really enjoyable for me, sad to hear you are not enjoying it anymore...guess each has its time...
  13. Hi marg26 I would suggest a mix, the feeling of doing something properly is second to none so aim for perfect :-). But to get there one need to feel progress... Don't rush it just have fun with and you will improve. I personally have 3-4 moves i practice most(at any given ride) 1-2 i can do (8 out 10 times) one with a ratio of (4/10) and one (1/20). That way if i don't do the hardest/most difficult that day i will still feel good as some of the other stuff felt good.. Hope that helps, one 40+ to another :-) keep it up
  14. Duing a bit of skatepark riding on the inspired...
  15. In my opinion the correct way is to control the fakie by pedal pressure. So you want to release/pedal backwards to gain more speed, and breaking/slowing down again by applying a little more pressure...its a feeling thing hard to explain how much is needed. The lazy way is done by using the rear brake..
  16. ill got for 203mm rotor both sides...and +1 for the hubs
  17. Cool video, was just in santa monica a few days ago..
  18. Circle's it is...back to the parking lot...
  19. Hi yes Denmark in the town called Viborg is a decent place...im not back home until the 13 of july but would love to go ride...
  20. Hi Alu-sprocket up front seems to hold fine for me. used one on my arcade for 3 years, no problem.
  21. Super clean smooooth riding...and speedy recovery ..
  22. Hi and welcome... first off 25/16 maybe a bit hard, "normally" a 22/16 - 22/15 gear ratio is used on 24" bikes. As for longer stem, if you lower back feels "too bend" maybe a higher stem or a handlebar with more raise is better. If you are hitting the knees a lot on the handlebar, maybe a longer stem. As a rule of thumb: Always make your bike setup comfortable when standing on the bike both wheels on the ground, if it feels wierd or hard standing on the bike, modify it a bit. Good luck and have fun with it...If you need more help on bike setup a pic of you on the goat...
  23. brilliant, smooooth riding...
  24. Nice video....Love the fakie manual at 2:14...
  25. Look really sweet...waiting for a review of it..
