  • 3rd bearing vs. EPW

    Hi guys! Just had a quick and simple question, since I have 3rd bearing support, I don't need EPW, right?

    There isn't a need for it anymore, but I'd keep it on there to relieve stresses on the bearing to help it last as long as possible.

      +1, you don’t need it. I’d actually suggest against using it entirely. I’ve seen many frames bend because of that epw holding up one side of the axle and people jumping curbs etc.

        I've never jumped curbs, but that is a possibility. Man, I wish I had an Xped back in the day.

          Thanks for answering the question! I don't think I'll be doing any tricks, it's shady enough just to ride a hard tire Sport normally!

          P.S. I also wish I had an Xped!

            Haha yea, we used to set up ramps and stuff, jump stairs, grind curbs, etc. this was right around the time the pros were doing backflips on them. Those videos kinda influence you as a kid.

            The sport frames would break at the neck weld, and old style plastic wheels would shatter. Xpeds were the only way to go. I had a buddy with a geo xped. I had a ported g230 xped. We’d all run x and q cans b/c the Gopeds would go flying and pipes were just too fragile. Good times.

            btw, the xpeds had EPWs on both sides of the frame.
