  1. Beautiful !!!
  2. Post some video clips of this beaut in action !
  3. I’m building up a 24inch Arcade frame and im a bit undecided on which tyres to go for... The Danny mac 50 a pop seem to be very popular, and I believe they would work well... and I’ve heard they last longer than Holly Rollers so technically could work out not more expensive in the long run... The Holly Rollers are much cheaper and also seem popular, and I believe would work well... and are lighter and cheaper than Danny macs but may not last as long... The Scwalbe Table Tops are also relatively inexpensive, are even lighter than Holly Rollers and have been given a thumbs up from Ali C on YouTube... Also I see Kendas are popular... the trend being all are around the 2.3 / 2.4 width so 2.0 is deffo gonna be slim for street trials... maybe more suited to dirt jumps... going for them just because they cost less isn’t a justified reason because of Holly Rollers and Table Tops etc... but if you want them because you like the look of them then go for it.... what’s the worst that could happen! Haha

  7. Thanks guys this has really helped! I’m going to go for 165mm then I’m also a big fan Ali C you’re awesome! So now for the techie part... The Inspired Arcade V2 Bashring says it will fit most bmx cranks with a micro drive hole... I’ve found some 165mm Colony 22s cranks (I’ll add the links below) that have a micro drive hole and a 22mm spindle... I see that the Inspired Arcade BB V2 can take a 22mm spindle... So, will it all fit together on my V2 Arcade frame? Is it this simple? Or am I missing something when crossing over from bmx parts to MTB? I’m confused about spindle length, are bmx spindles different lengths to MTB ones?? It also adds to my confusion that I’ve seen loads of custom built Inspired Arcades on the internet and nobody is running bmx cranks on there... (apart from the black Inspired specially made versions that only come in 175mm...
  8. Hey everyone, what are your opinions on crank arm length? I always read that it’s down to personal preference... this is the general answer to most things I guess... But surely if you’re 6”3 or 5”6 it has an influence on crank arm length feel...? So my question is (if you’re new to Trials so don’t yet have a preference...) what would be your thoughts / opinions for a 5”8 newbie to modern street trials bikes. Learning street, park, bmx moves and general street trials moves. PS; If the bike geo / wheel size plays a role in your advice... then I’m building up a 24inch Inspired Arcade v2. Thanks in advance for any advice
  9. Good news! I’m wanting NS District Bars but then I’ve been bummed that I don’t have a wide choice of stems... I bought a bmx stem, looks cool and feels unbreakable but it’s weighty.... the hope AM stems look beaut, what bars are you running there? Also your bike looks cool dude, any chance of some pics and spec ????
  10. Also good to know... I do favour the bash it option though haha Just for reference when you say C shape do you mean just slit it with a cutting disc or do you mean cut a section out? I see you’re from Tarty bikes! Cool shop dude, do you guys ship to Holland? I’m after the intergrated Arcade bash ring and the fork axle from your site and maybe some other parts actually, possibly wheels if I can’t find any good 2nds, if so how much do you charge to post wheels to Holland? ... anyway it says the arcade bash ring will fit bmx cranks that have a micro drive hole... but do you know if bmx cranks will then fit on to an inspired arcade frame? I’ve been told yes but I’d need a longer spindle... if this is correct do you sell said spindles? Cheers
  11. Wow, that was quick! Excellent news, so now all I need is a pipe ! Haha. Thanks for the help judge
  12. If I leave the black ring off the other bottom part fits on beautifully, and the top parts all fit well, but the whole thing feels like it wobbles. Not much wobble but definitely more than I can remember on my old bikes (that bike shops built for me) ...hope you understand all this haha
  13. Here’s the first ring.. looks like a base to help seal the bearing ring but it stops before it reaches the base and I’ve tried forcing it with no luck... and don’t want to start bashing it in case I’m wrong haha
  14. Here are the headset parts in the order they came packed...
  15. How strange. But the Stolen Talon v2s look cool, which colour option you going for? I’m thinking a chrome plated set of cranks for my build would look ace. Still a good price there though mate. Maybe you could give me a little extra advice, I bought a fiend intergrated headset : https://www.kunstform.org/en/fiend-bmx-integrated-headset-p-9215 and I’m confused when fitting it. It all goes on well apart from the very bottom ring, it stops about a cm from the base of the steerer tube...? Am I supposed to bash it down? I’ve not got any experience with modern intergrated headsets. If I leave the very bottom ring off the rest goes on we’ll but then I feel a tiny wobble when I move stem and fork, it’s not much movement but it doesn’t feel snug or smooth it that makes sense.. I’ll add some pics maybe you know exactly what I’m doing / done wrong hahah pics to follow....
