  1. Nah man your only 1" taller than me I get on fine with my arcade I wouldn't trust a steerer extender myself new bars n stem Will see you right : )
  2. Really like the nose pick to wedge Music went well to : )
  3. The saga of the entry level bike deal When I got back in to trials I got myself a sweet deal on a Tpro with 2 16t freeweels fitted : )
  4. Only happened to me when I used a hub with m6 bolts never with my hope hub it might be worth seeing if theres any paint in the serrated washers on the inside of the dropouts that could help also might be counter intuitive but have you tried only using a tug on the drive side
  5. They wont mention an axle length as BMX worked out its standard dimensions many years ago those khe cranks look like a 48 spine so a longer profile axle may well fit but I do not think youd be hindered by a 175mm crank arm if you can afford it the arcade cranks ate really good if a lil heavy I got a sweet deal on some sram gx eagles and saved some grams I'd recommend 22/16 not sure if anyone uses 22/15 nowadays imo it would be too heavy on the pedals to be any good for static or short run up stuff
  6. In theory you could but there may be some issues a 22t sprocket is 3&3/4" diameter and a 25t is 4&1/8" looks like there not enough clearance on my arcade it looks like theres bout a 1/4" between the sprocket and frame The arcade cranks have a 6&5/8" axle bmx cranks are 5&7/8" I belive profile do make longer axles not sure bout odyssey As for gearing 25 /18 (1.388 ratio) would be marginally heavier than 22/16 (1.375 ratio) which is heavy already compared to trialsy trials bikes (24" 18/14 =1.285 ratio) combine that with shorter cranks as well may well be too hard a gearing for static stuff If money is no object profile could be the way to go the do micro drive crank bosses on some of there cranks and make a mtb sized axle ti axles available to but that's like £300 + Measurements from the parts graveyard that is my garage so some may be a bit off as it's all bolted together
  7. I had a pro4 do this it was just after (like 2 rides after) the ratchet ring had been replaced by hope cos the pawls had chipped and mangled the ratchet ring teeth they changed the hub shell for me my hub sometimes misses a tooth / skips under low load like when I set up for something as opposed to putting the power (of which I havent much of) down As for the thread on a 2 vs a 4 the ratchet ring is a larger diameter on a 4 I belive so they can put more teeth in there
  8. Its because they are knuckle dragging stupid racists c**ts
  9. I dont have experience with exteionnpotental but I do have an arcade and it's the best put together most well designed frame ive owned and I've had a lot of steel bmx frames in my time from standard s&m kink (when they were made in NY) etc the arcade tops these in terms of quality
  10. Some really nice lines and definitely some things I wasnt expecting : )
  11. So it from the looks crewkerz are testing out a street trials bike looks weird to me with that seat so high above the tt/seat stays
  12. For me if the clip cuts just after they side hop up something or the moment they land I dont think that they really landed it not properly anyways
  13. Not tried em but I've seen the ones you mean They look nice but not very useful unless your in Japan though : )
  14. In the name of love ?
  15. Too short for me any ways
