 i could have got 1 for 198 new but i didnt have any money at the time sucks so bad.,nice bike im still after one but really i need a back wheel inclueded and im geussin u want yours for your next 1
  • 1 0
 Plus a BB and the post I'm offering with this would have made that around £240.
And yeah, as I love my freecoaster.
  • 1 0
 didnt realise it was a freecoster i have a khe/halo freecoaster and i hate it, probly cus its cheap crap.i was gopna get the reba if i got a capital but is it worth payin the extra for 20mm im not exatcly a hard rider
  • 1 0
 In the picture it's a Profile Mini, but has since changed (along with alot of the bike) to a Stolen Easystreet.
And most deffinately, as although I trust this fork, it can seem abit flexxy when you land funny or do a weird slider.

 you know the weight at all ?
  • 1 1
 Im guessing about 23-15lbs.
  • 2 0
 11.10 pounds
  • 1 0
 Kilograms you mean. Right? Cause 11.1 Kilograms would be 24.47 pounds, and that seems about right. By the way, check out my Capital! lol. And also what is your opinion on the Reba, I'm looking to go with a suspension fork on my Cap after breaking my wrist, and can't choose. I'll be riding mostly park. Thanks.
  • 1 0
 Yeah, I meant kilograms. Jetlag is a bitch. I would reccomend the Reba, but the 20mm version is probably a better option in the way of stiffness. If I were to have to go get a new fork right now it would be between a Reba or Pargyle... Or a Fox if there was enough money!
  • 1 0
 Yeah, on Chainreactioncycles.com they only have the 9mm. My current hub is a 9mm, but then you think it wouldn't be strong enough for park your saying? I've never ran a XC fork for anything, so I don't know much on them.
  • 1 0
 They should handle park, but the 20mm are more stable and stiffer ( like charger rider said)
  • 1 0
 I'm not saying it wouldn't hold(riding style depending), but some people just like the reassurance of sturdier and burlier parts.
And I'm pretty sure CRC have the Reba team or something which is 20mm.
  • 1 0
 lol, this would be 10flat with KHE tires.

 yesh! im buying a capial in the same color end of sept!

 Wheres the brakes :S
  • 1 0
 What is "brakes"...? Confused
  • 1 0
 haha lol, do you get such thing as hub braking, like using the hubs? Heard of it.
  • 1 0
 Coaster brakes?
They're in no way fit for a street/park bike!
I don't have any brakes and stop by putting my foot down or shoving it into my back tyre.
  • 1 0
 Yeah I know, but do you get Hub brakes, so they are just like no cables, or a cable going down the stem and handle bars? lol that works but go through shoes like socks!
  • 1 0
 You do. Check out a postmans bike the next time you see one - huge hubs, with cable leading down to them. They're apparently easier to maintain, but probably weigh a bomb and would be fairly week when it comes to anything other than delivering the mail! And not really, I've been riding brakeless on this bike for nearly a year now and my shoes are fine! Brakeless riding gives you a better overall balance, means you can't whimp out when going for a line and helps you sort you speed out before you get to an obsticle, rather than last minute braking.
  • 1 0
 indeed, but lately I wish I used my brakes tryed to do a jump, back wheel just clipped the end flipped me over and broke my leg Frown
I kinda knew I wasnt gonna make it but I though, "Wont be that bad" lol was I wrong!
Im only 14 so not hardcore biker! XD
  • 1 0
 Deffinatly wouldn't advise brakeless for dirt jumping or untill you've got a really good over-all bike handling skill!
Shame about the leg mate, how long untill it's healed?
  • 1 0
 dunno, A while Frown Bone popped out lol!!
Did a jump on my own and was lying in on thr ground for 10 minutes in agny then had to roll home, but It's getting better, just sucks how its my holidays 2 weeks of school and I was planning going out trials biking and making video but thats not gonna happen!
And also the one day I didnt ware my shin pads...
  • 1 0
 Sods law that it happens the day you don't wear your shinnies! Hope you heal up fast and get riding again soon!
  • 1 0
 Aye hopefully, thanks. You freecoasting is doss!
I can only go a bit, do you just turn the handle bars, like wiggle them to keep ballace?
And do you need to pedal back?
  • 1 0
 The whole point of a freecoaster is that you don't need to back pedal (although a back pedal might be needed before hand to disengage the clutch).
And it's all about keeping your balance using your body weight (and in my case a few hops where needed) as turning the bars can throw you off even more!
Really need to get some videos of all my latest trick-atry

 GOD, they are crazy heavy... never thought it was that much. What u think about the KHE's?
  • 1 0
 Loved the KHE's apart from the price and how fast they wear. The wear rate would be tollerable if they were cheaper though. Tioga Powerblogs look like a decent medium!
  • 1 0
 Ridiculously sick. Think i may lower my DJ3's to 60mm while they're in pieces haha.
  • 1 0
 Cheers!
Think mine need to go upto 70 or maybe 80mm when I next have them apart!
All boxed up and ready to go by the wayWink
  • 1 0
 Eh maybe ill go only down by 10mm then, they might bottom out at 60mm tbh. btw, just wondering dont the Capitals have an integrated piv post, as yours doesnt *seem* to have one. And RAD. It'll give me something to look forward to while im working my mundane as f*ck job. Big Grin
  • 1 0
 The 2009 Capital (like this one) have the intergrated seatclamp, unlike the 2010 one which has the built in pivotal post (and the awesomeness of U-brake mounts!).
I'm selling this as I want the '10 version:P

And what're your forks at now?
With a Sub frame I think anywhere between 100-80mm of travel is plenty for street and park.
  • 1 0
 My Dash totally aint showing any replies.

Ah yeah, i want to try out a U brake but theres so many reasons they suck, i.e wet rim = no brakes :p

how much you selling that for? Id love a capital tbh, the sub is good, but i want the geo more dialled. My forks are at 80mm now, but since breaking em i got 3" rise bars from 1", and been running rigids so im used to the height (or lowness) of that.
  • 1 0
 A nicely dialled in U-brake can hold its own against any other brake in my opinion!
And I'm selling it for £200 posted including BB and the Pivotal post as it's in such good condition, but I'm probably going to have to settle for less.
I've always loved 3" rise bars (or 3.6" bars when I've run Districts) on rigids.
But always thought that with sus you should run 2" rise bars.
Yet since having 3.6" bars on sus I take it all back.
Just rides so damn nice!

 well id prefur to pick up because i got ripped off not long sice because i payed and it was not sent .
  • 1 0
 I can understand where you're coming from, but you're gonna end up paying alot more.
If you're unconvinced you can ask anyone who I've sold stuff to on here (and that's alot of people) and they'll all tell you that items arrive as described and very quickly.
I've been a member on this site for over 2 years, so I think if a moderator was going to get a complaint and mark me as a scammer, it would have happened by now!

 I have those tires. Do you know the weight of them exactly?
  • 1 0
 800-900 grams
  • 1 0
 where did you buy the profiles mate?
  • 1 0
 The hubs?
Source BMX.
I think they have to be built up by Profile Europe and then they get sent to you by over night courier if they don't have the exact ones you want.
  • 1 0
 do they have 10mm axles.cheers
  • 1 0
 Yeah, front and rear.
Had to get the 10-14mm adapters seperatly from Alansbmx for the rear though.
My rear ones gonna be for sale soon if you're interested in one?
Only had a month or so's light use...

 Thanks! To be honest it's the best suited bike I've ever had to match my riding style!
  • 1 0
 it looks so clean. im currently planning to sell my parts to build something like this. it caught my eye. sorry if you see a bike next year. that looks like yours just jelous
  • 1 0
 Not meaning to sound up myself, but I wouldn't blame you as it's a pretty dialled setup with looks to match!
  • 1 0
 yes. i wish i had a build like this instead of mine. how do you fid the clearance for barspins?
  • 1 0
 Well with the rigids if I had my feet "normal" like on other bikes the front wheel would hit my front foot just turning, but now that I'm used to it and with the addition of the differant forks it's better. Bar width might also pose a problem, but I'm sure you can get around it by trimming them or just pinching further back.
  • 1 0
 my foot hits the wheel because the clearence isnt enough. i need to back my toe to the front of the pedal. how do you like ur bike with suspension?
  • 1 0
 I love it. As much as I loved it fully rigid it does feel tonnes better to have that extra 'pop' on some tricks.
  • 1 0
 hows ur fork holding up?
  • 1 0
 Pretty well to be honest. It's obviously not gonna be as stiff as 20mm forks or anything like that, but with the weight considered it's pretty damn sturdy. The only time it feels slightly sketchy is when I do a dodgey halfcab and my front wheel connects with the ground at a funny angle.
  • 1 0
 are foot jams anny diffrent? compared t0 26 fork on 24rim
  • 1 0
 Deffinatly! In comparison the gap is nothing, which is good as with rigids I always got half my foot stuck.

 ouuffftt niceee Wink
  • 1 0
 btw how are those tyres and forks man??
  • 1 0
 Thanks!
And the tyres were good whilst I had them (sold them for KHE Dirts), didn't get a single puncture whilst I had them, nice and grippy (maybe a little too grippy for sliders), but the weight really held them back!
And I love the fork!
Was great at 100mm, but I lowered it to 60mm so it was only 10mm longer than the NS RNS 2's A2C hieght, so like rigid, but with some pop!
What also makes them brilliant is the dual air spring, so you can get the softness/rigididty perfect (less negative air than in the positive makes them move less easily and more negative air than positive makes them more active).
Might be switching the frame out for the '10 version as I want to get a gyro'd U-brake set-up on the go!

 There's a differance between dyslexia and plain old lazyness.
You can't tell me that you typing in "text talk", like "u" instead of "you", or "bk" instead of "back" is down to your Dyslexia.

 To travel the 200 miles to where I live and back home you would end up paying alot more than £200 (I.e, petrol or in train tickets).
