Redline "V" bars. Never liked those. I agree with the backward seat guts post, it looks unbalanced. Not a big fan of the droopy, pointed down seat angle either. Don't get me started on the extremely forward pushed handlebars. Did someone already refer to those as Chicago Style?

Yep, that's Chicago style. and a BIG +1 for the V bars thing, although if you're restoring a 70s bike, I can see why you would use them.


Do I owe you feedback? Please remind me via PM and I'll take care of it.

Flame tires. GOD WHY.

Also haha, it never had a gyro or pegs, but I freestyled my '86 Californian. I'm tall! Do I fail?


When I bunnyhop I hear a creak and I don't know if it's my bike or my joints. Oh well.

it shouldn't matter what parts someone uses on their bike as long as the person who owns the bike likes it.

Re: What part makes you cringe when someone has it on their nice build?

of course:
JDB parts
Pork Chump
and double pinch flites
but for a real old school part/parts cringe it would have to be:
1. CW bars
2. braced lay backs
3. EZ bars on a TA

Dyno drain post.


I never log off and I had to disable my screen saver because it was causing problems , making me have to restart my computer every time it kicked on. Please keep that in mind if you message me and I don't reply back right away. Thanks.

also, wheels on bikes, it's pointless and looks wrong tongue

Number plates with numbers on a freestyle bike... Sometimes a plate on fs bike rocks!
Colored chains
Higher end bike with a cheap finishing touch (cheap seat/pedals/brakes/grips)
Freestyle stem on race bike
Freestyle bars on race bikes
But i know alot will disagree....i love tuffwheels on a race bike!!! smile
1pc cranks
My thoughts of what makes me cringe

Re: What part makes you cringe when someone has it on their nice build?

old parts on new bikes, new bikes with old parts.   its just......... why

something nicely done with all the right high dollar parts and everything...... and the crappiest set of brake pads ever made.

front brake cable (thats cut too short) straight routed instead of using the potts mod bolt thats already in the stem! i see this all the time yikes

Re: What part makes you cringe when someone has it on their nice build?

+1 for knobby tires on freestyle bike

What's up with all the porkchop hate? I'm fairly new here, but have talked to the guy several times. Seems like a great guy with a wealth of knowledge to me. I for one am building a bike with "Champagne taste and a beer budget." I've got 3 kids to tend to before the bikes, so every dollar I can save I do. Repop works fine for me. Now I can understand if I were building a $1000 bike I'd want to use as much OG and NOS as possible, but for a $200-300 rider, why spend $600 on it?

pegs on race frames.

Not knocking you or anything mate but most freestylers started out on race frames set up for freestyle which included putting pegs and stuff on the bikes to make them usable for tricks...there where no freestyle specific frames when it started rolling....just saying is all.

As for what gets me boiling it's gotta be repro parts and Purple ano LOL
