    How to fix bent axle tubes

    That’s what I thought would be the best, no one got hurt luckily. The little bolt connecting the brake lever to the arm for my scrub brake popped off somehow (i hadn’t thought to check if they were tightened fully before riding) so i lost brakes and had to ditch the bike and it hit a curb and...

    How to fix bent axle tubes

    Any way you fix this? I just crashed my bike and bent the rear axle pretty bad. I cut the axle out and got it out pretty quick. Now I’m having trouble getting these tubes straight. I’ve tried hitting them back into place but I figured I’d ask here if anyone has some advice before hitting them...

    Chain keeps coming off, not sure why

    well huh that’s on me, i figured they were less than 1 mm different so it would work. i’ll stop and get a 5/8 bolt on my way home and see if that fixes it. Thank you guys! will update later

    Chain keeps coming off, not sure why

    would a 15mm axle with 5/8 bearing cause that much trouble to wear it would mess with the chain?

    Chain keeps coming off, not sure why

    it’s a 35 chain 12t clutch and 60t sprocket. The play is left to right. i added a spacer and washers and it doesn’t seem like i’d even be able to fit another washer to close the little bit of the gap there is.

    Chain keeps coming off, not sure why

    Chain keeps popping off but everything seems fine? Put a pred 212 on a Manco Streaker, everything fit but the chain keeps popping off after short rides. Everything seems lined up so I’m confused. There is a tiny bit of play on the rear wheel but I didn’t think it was enough to cause any issues...

    Best place to buy wheels

    Just picked up a Manco Streaker and I’m having trouble finding some affordable wheels. I’m pretty sure I need 5” wheels, I was on OldMiniBikes and was looking at some tristars with a sprocket kit and it came out to almost $200. I bought the frame itself for $100 so I’d like to keep the wheel/sprocket set...
