    Pedal Washer?

    I recently purchased Weyless B-37 Pedals and during installation noticed the washers I used (which didn't come with the pedals) became bent. After removing pedals, I noticed the base of where the washer sits flat against the pedal threads does not have a traditional round flat base, therefore...

    BB length

    I was wandering if there was a standard BB length for mountain bike frames regardless of the frame's actual BB width. I have four different mtb frames and noticed they all had slightly different widths at the bottom bracket area ranging between 2.6" and 2.9" wide while I was deciding on what to...

    TeChNiCaL BMX sizing and gearing charts :)

    I happened to find this website that gives a pretty technical description of BMX sizing and gearing. The website is intended for bmx racers, but still valuable whether you are on the track, street, or park. http://supertrakbmx.com/content/view/3/5/

    Upgrading an Argyle 302

    I assume you never disassembled a fork before. I once serviced Rock Shox foks (replacing oil), which involved removing lowers, replacing oil and seals. If you can follow directions carefully and have the right parts, I would say go for it, but make sure you study the service manual until you...

    Is this a good deal for a Noob bike??

    As a pure mountain biker and soon-2-be BMX'r (shopping for parts to customize over the Winter), from my experience, I would have to agree with most of the suggestions in not spending too much for your first "descent" mountain bike. I never got fitted for a bike, and regret doing so...had to go...

    BMX winter project

    I agree with T1maglio, Most mountain bikes especially customized will cost over $1000. I have two mountain bikes, which I custom built...one cost $1,150 and the other $900. I did visit the bmx online store, www.danscomp.com, which Cru Jones suggested and glad I found it. Great selection of...

    BMX winter project

    Finally got a Haro DJ frame (26") to build up over the winter, and interested in getting into the sport of BMX. I know very little about the sport, and not completely sure where to start. I custom build mountain bikes for a living, but never dealt with BMX...ideally, I prefer to buy a complete...

    Northern VA dirt jumping trails??

    I didn't mean for my opinion to offend anyone. I do respect everyone involved in designing, building, and maintaining trails. If it came across as such, I apologize. If I had time, I would contribute to building trails myself. But I don't go out there like a rebel trying to vandalize It's...

    Any Coments On This Fork

    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/2007_forks/product_129745.shtml It appears they upgraded the cartridge damping, the travel, adjustment, and lowers for the 2007, which is nearly twice the cost as the 2006 model (QR, 145mm, $230 Pricepoint). The Nixon line of forks haven't gotten very good...

    Northern VA dirt jumping trails??

    I agree with the fact that it takes a lot of effort to maintain trails, but the truth of the matter is, BMXer's don't own trails, and the same goes for mountain bikers. I am sure there are trails all over the place with different set ups. The plan was that those interested in learning to DJ...

    Better to buy wheelsets already built or...

    This is an update to my previous request, where I needed suggestions on some DJ / FR wheels. After checking out the website, Universalcycles.com, I noticed they had many rims to choose from (even 24"), however, the rims alone cost over $50, hubs...another $100 (pair), and 32/36 spokes, not to...
