  • Charge Scissor fork 415mm? unable to find info.

    408mm

  • Anyone running left hand drive yet? Some guys in the states are doing it on standard threaded track hubs. Wonder if anyone here has some first hand experience?

  • coul;d anyone please tell me if mavic open pro is good for this kind of abuse? I'm building my first polo/trick bike :)

  • I used to have a 32h open pro as a rear on my old polo bike, it help up ok. I'd recommend Rigida Sputniks if you haven't bought any rims yet. Cheap, strong and you can run big tyres on them.

    Could be worth asking dogsballs?

  • Do most people run a brake on their fixed/freestyle trick bike?

    I'm assuming no brakes, due to tricks etc (barspins)

    I'm thinking of getting a brooklyn launchpad and i am toying with the idea of getting disk brake mounts on the cluster fork and running a front disk brake, but i may just go brakeless, since i ride my current bike brakeless anyway.

  • I haven't seen anyone riding fixed bike with a brake on when doing tricks. Why would a brake be required, endo's ?? :-)

    ok cheers, thats what i thought afterall.

  • anyone know of anywhere selling 48h profile hubs?

  • so a charge dish is definately a better alternative to deep vs? im so confused

  • i believe the charge dish's are wider so can take a wider tyre, so if you want to go wider go for it

  • anyone know of anywhere selling 48h profile hubs?

    Any UK profile supplier should be able to get them pretty quick for you.

  • Sweet. Let's get building!

  • Anybody know if there's a chain tensioner that will fit on the Volume Cutter V3, normal bmx ones don't seem to fit, the dropouts are really short on the cutter.

  • Im thinking of buying the miche primato hubs. Which would make a stronger wheel set Small flange or large flange.

    also is there a noticable difference in strength between 32h and 36h

  • Don't get Miche for tricks, they're not designed for it.
    Something like Formulas will be better. Ideally something like profiles.

    My trick wheel build has a BMX hub in the front, and a goldtec in the back. No need to match 'em!

  • Dont have the money for profiles :/ would if i could though :D

    So if i built 32h formulas on velocity chukkers. 3 cross, does anyone know what spoke length i would need?

  • Or would 36h be better?

  • Weelll I'd go for the 36 if you can. Wouldn't use chukkers though as they're well expensive (unless you already have them?).

    Rigida sputniks are seriously strong, and £18 each. Great rim. Available all the way up to 48 hole too! (as are brick lane bikes hubs I think?)

  • Can you get sputniks with non machined?

  • only the 48h are non-machined.

    My trick wheels: 48h sputniks to G-sport front hub, Goldtech rear, DT swiss spokes and michelin tyres

  • If you go for silver though the machining doesn't jump out at you as much, of course.

  • are blb freestyle hubs any good?

  • They're supposed to be solid hubs, yeah.
