 ;D

Only got them today. So havnt rode them too much. But so far im impressed. Better quality finish than i expected if im honest.

I have to say i am a bit scared of the whole alloy thing though. When i rode Primo's at least they had steel hardware.

A bit of flex, but so far so good. Im considering switching to a regular BB in the future. Plastic works 100%, i just prefer the the precision of a regular one. Im lazy though, so chances are i wont bother changing. . . . haha.

I was looking at that but i kind of prefer the Tree one.

Stop trying to get me to spend money. . . im poor . . .   ^_^
Title: Re: post your NEW sickchild metros and instrumentals!
Post by: Peter Hollinger on August 28, 2008, 12:59:21 AM
 -_- Na, no way! Im so stoked on this frame, ive wanted an 18.25 Sickchild for a long time! The riding ive done on it so far is much better than anything ive been doing since i fractured my foot. I can see much progression this winter .  . .

Ed is the man, so while im on the subject i want to thank him once again for everything he does for me.
Also thanks to Scott for holding onto a set of cranks for me until i had some money.



Tree. . .

Yeah the splined sprocket was amazing. Really good idea. Rode mine for over a year, no problems.

Hope to MAYBE get some filming done on the new frame this weekend. Quick combo or something.

Post by: slimp on September 01, 2008, 09:56:53 AM
Q for all the people with the newest gen sickchilds: were you able to run both tensioners on the inside of the frame? I have a nankai technolite, and I was only able to run 1 tensioner, and only on the drive side, if I put the tensioner on the other side, the wheel was off center. How is everybody else setting theirs up? I only ask this because both my gen 1 badda bling and aqueduct were wide enough to run both tensioners.
Title: Re: post your NEW sickchild metros and instrumentals!
Post by: Peter Hollinger on September 01, 2008, 07:39:39 PM
Yeah man, all my Sickchilds (sickchildren?  ^_^) are perfect with chain tensioners on the inside. No issues.

So you have a new Metro and only one chain tensioner fits in?

I have an instrumental, thought the back ends should be identical. The wheel barely fit with just 1 tensioner, 2 was out of the question. I'm not sure if its because I'm using the old nankai with no decoration cap or what, I can take a pic if that helps

Odd. Not that is matters but what tensioners you running?

I wouldnt stress, if the one tensioner is fine and the wheel is in pretty straight id rock it, however if its giving you bother post a pic and/or contact Ed. Ill mention it to him tomorrow.

Title: Re: post your NEW sickchild metros and instrumentals!
Post by: Peter Hollinger on September 03, 2008, 09:48:43 PM
Anyone having issues with the tensioners in the new Metro's should file the paint off the inside of the dropouts (where the axle slots in).

The Quamen tensioners in particular have a small "shoulder" on them to sit nicely in the dropout slot.
This is all well and good, but the frames have a good coat of paint on them. This stops the tensioner being able to slot into the frame.


As i say, file out the slots a bit, just so the paint is gone and try again. . . problem should be solved. . . .

I guess lemme hop in here.

As far as the broken sickchilds err whatever..Solid bikes, and i love them to death. But everything has the potential to brake, i personally cracked the rearend up on the first gen instrumental..But thats completely my fault for attempting whoppers down a small 3 set repeatedly.

Post by: Peter Hollinger on October 11, 2009, 11:19:19 PM
Sick Child don't have a "warranty policy". I have been riding for Ed for about 5/6 years now, had about 6 frames and can honestly say I havent broken/cracked one. I also know where most of them are and they are still being ridden today.
I dont want to put words into Ed's mouth but while there is no official warranty policy as such, if a frame cracked within a reasonable amount of time under normal riding conditions the customer would be looked after.

As far as me riding a 19.25" toptube, this bike isnt going to be anything like my other rides. Let's just say I want to ride a BIKE again.
