 BMX Radness! 

I just got these elusive bottom brackets in stock, I had to order 50 of them direct from the manufacturer. These are a YST sealed bearing bottom bracket that allows you to convert an American or one piece crank shell to accept square taper 3 piece cranks. The product is very nice, precision piece, way better then the other kind that utilizes standard caged bearings, these will last and last. Ideal for your BMX, BMX cruiser, strand cruiser, klunker or many other applications. The price is 50 bucks, you have to pay sales tax as well ($4.50). I can ship for another 5 bucks if you don't want to make the journey. Let me know, I can take Paypal.  See Below, click to buy, shipped price is 60.00 bucks to the lower 48 states.

New from the lab...

 

This tool is designed for older bottom brackets. You thread it into one side and then use a large wrench to tighten the tool against the stubborn bottom bracket race, then turn and it should spin out. Most older bb's are hard to remove and the tools for getting them out are sub-par. Made in the USA, 110.00 shipped. Contact for shop pricing. 

"These bladder wheeled bicycles are diabolical devices of the Demon of Darkness. They are contrivances to trap the feet of the unwary and skin the nose of the innocent. They are full of guile and deceit! When you think you have broken one to ride and subdued its wild and Satanic nature, behold it bucketh you off in the road and teareth a great hole in your pants. Look not upon the bike when it bloweth upon its wheels, for at last it bucketh like a bronco and hurteth like thunder. Who has skinned legs? Who has a bloody nose? Who has the ripped breeches? They that dally along with the bicycle!" 

from a sermon, Maryland, 1896.


As quoted from: A social History of the Bicycle, Robert A. Smith

 

Bicycle Restoration

Before                               After

The cost of restoring a bike varies. I will have to see it in person, not talk about it on the the phone. 


"There are very few accomplishments of any value that can be gained without practice, and that which takes the least time to learn is usually the least valuable when learned."
