    Those frames are anodised so paint stripper wouldn't do much - you'd need a fuckload of caustic
    soda.Expecting that frame/bike to feel stiff might be asking a little much but you never know I
    guess - ...

    other rims have you tried/how long did they last?

    There are different schools of thought with grease vs. no grease. I used to on my BMX press-fit
    BB's and it certainly made life easier.For fitting them, you may struggle just doing the block
    of wood t...

    I hadn't even noticed the grip section. Ironic that they build that bike up with those fucking
    cranks, yet it doesn't have a bashplate or bashring. Just learn how to hop up shit properly.

    We have some ordered, not sure exactly when they'll be here though. Either way - they're
    available now from Echo, so it just depends on how long it take to ship to dealers basically.

    Yeah, there are some who are more violent, but I imagine that usually there are going to be
    people from your own country who are going to be as bad/worse, but we're culturally used to
    them so they don...

    What is implied by the term Albanian guys? Why is it important to the story?Why did Ultimate

    Andy - there's literally no other way to get that out other than using a hammer/mallet and
    hitting the axle. If it's not coming out you're not hitting it hard enough ;) The only thing

Saw your grip post on uk. I had the half nelson race face grips they are ok but open end.
The new Gwin grips are super thin and closed end with alloy cap covered in plastic, single collar. I would recommend these minus the bullshit pricing. 45 CAD

I have used those long thin grips from toyo about 10 years ago only slide on rubber grip i would use.

I now use racquet ball tape but you might rip this stuff with all your bmx shenanigans. I have small hands so only use thin grips.

Something in common, interesting
