 Jokes aside, after I got myself a Reverb putting additional strain on my edermis, the asscream really saves my bottom. For hygiene reasons I prefer to take a big chunk once and apply it, instead of reaching in again and again with same finger. They say you should avoid touching the membrane with it, but the chilling effect is irresistible. Works wonders on the morning after the dinner with mexican or indian food. You no longer need to keep toilet paper in the fridge. I am very glad I could share that.

 That looks more like the SRAM direct mount pattern that is on my X0 cranks. Also if you read the "from the manufacturer" part. It says it's a 104bcd.

 Those IXS pads are the best trail bike knee pads ever. So comfortable and easy to pedal big mileage w/o chafing or having to pull them down.

Honest question on the bike tool (every tool seems to have this issue) what is the point of having a Phillips screwdriver. I cannot remember the last bike of mine that needed one. Would be much better to have a T10 torx?
  • 4 0
 High & low derailleur limit screws. you could just replace them with a hex though. I know some people will do that all over their bikes, but with Torx for everything, since it's harder to strip. Then you just carry a folding Torx.

 Accessories such as lights etc are often Philips. Pretty handy to have for a commuter bike, not so much a mtb.

 are you sure silicone grips are gonna be tacky especially when wet? my experience with the material just seems to contradict that property.
  • 1 0
 They do stay tacky when wet..I have been using the ESI silicone grips for the last 2 seasons..Most comfortable grips on the market..The only negative is installing and removing them..The superstar lock on version looks promising..They just need to offer bigger diameter grips for us guys with big hands.

 @Biocoug1 Ouch! I wish I could defend Mongoose more but it's true and made me laugh. There may be a couple Mongoose bikes not available at Walmart that are decent. This is the only one I would buy though...maybe.
  • 4 0
 @KottonGin, I was a kid in the 80's. I grew up on Mongoose, Haro, Diamond Backs and Redline. I was pretty shocked to see their bikes at Walmart now. Diamond Back is another company that seems to be on the struggle. Maybe I'm wrong. Yeah, they have a couple riders now and make a couple decent bikes but Diamond Back is not the premier brand it use to be. My Diamond Back super viper BMX was tight back then.

 @Biocoug1 I was an ABA member by age 4 so I know exactly what you're talking about and how you feel! I wasn't around too much in the 80's but I'll always have a soft spot for the pioneers of BMX.
