Thank you FlatSociety, it's been awhile since I've checked out your site. It's looking great. I have already made plans to get the new wheels through flatlandfuel. There are some additional things I'll need soon, like tires and pegs etc so I'll probably be placing an order on your site sometime soon.


It's nice to have more then one flatland specific shop to choose from. I love flatlandfuel but it's always nice to have more options. Plus you seem to carry some different things which is always nice.

Thanks for the update mambocowboy!

That grenade hub looks like a great option, I may decide to go with it. I have also been considering getting an FEC front hub, kinda just to 'match' the FEC freecoaster on the rear. The regular FEC front hub looks decent enough but then there is also the carbon fiber version which is very light (140g), I'm just not sure yet if a carbon fiber shell hub is a good idea as a flatland hub. Been searching around to see if I can find any reviews. Anyone here use it and have anything to say about it?

Hi Aliasdck, I was reading your thread & I have the Armour F-1 Grenade Hub available in my Shop. I currently run it on my bike. I also have Sun Envy Rims in stock as well. If there's anything I can help you with, don't hesitate to ask. My Shop is here: http://www.flatsocietybmx.com

There is really no big advantage going with the TI driver. You can loose more weight for cheaper on other parts.
I use Khe freecoasters and haven't had any major issue with them, even the aluminum axle has held up for years.

There are lighter rims, but you can't go wrong with G-Sport. I also have them, they are super strong and stiff.

Parts & Bikes / Re: Sequence "The HooK" Sig. stem by Brandon Fenton Pre-Orders!

Very cool, I'm considering trying one of these. One problem I have with all stems I've tried is that no matter how tight I tighten the part that clamps the bar, the bars will always shift ever so slightly forward or backward a tiny bit when crashing hard in just the right way. Like, for example, landing the bars hard onto the ground in a hitchhiker position. I'm not surprised this happens considering the forces/physics applied, I just find it frustrating because even a tiny change is quite noticeable to me.

I am finally done saving for this and so I'm about to purchase a new wheelset. I still think I am going to go with 14mm FEC freecoaster probably steel not titanium but doing some last minute research on all available coasters before deciding. I'm open to any suggestions. Gonna go with either the GSport Birdcage or Sun Envy rims.

I also still need to pick out a good lightweight reliable front hub, any suggestions considering what's currently available from flatlandfuel?
Update. I am riding both steel and ti fc on my bikes. Riding the ti without additional spacer with no issues. I like light front hubs. Have alienation tinman. Coolest looking imo is armour bikes grenade front hub, also very light yet likely also very durable.

Thanks mambocowboy I may give that a try. I had thought about doing something like this, essentially 'knurling' the inside surface but hadn't really thought about how best to do it. A bit of scratching up the surface with a file without removing too much material might just do the job. I have a couple of old stems I don't use anymore, I'll try it on one of those first.


👍
Been working well for me on a bunch of stems.
