    Andy - stripping the paint off the frame would probably get you a chunk closer to that straight
    away. Pretty thick powdercoat on them, got to be worth a few hundred grammes.Incidentally, my

    It's not a teeth related thing, it's a pure fashion related thing. All the park nibblers got on
    them, wife beaters/tank tops, shit tattoos, etc. It's just their whole fashion/look. Always
    seemed odd t...

    Yeah, I'd be inclined to back someone on that. The new Echo frames are pretty rad.As a side
    note, I've measured 3 complete bikes recently. 2 of them were out on the WB by 10mm, 1 by 5mm,
    and none of t...

    Haha, it's all good - I was just typecasting the usual style-vacuum, gumshield wearing park
    drones who are all about landing shit to flat on spine mini ramp setups ;)

    Do they ask you to leave your style at the door when you come in, and insist you're wearing a
    gumshield at all times?

    You say tomato, I say Solanum lycopersicum.

    Not sure if I've said it before, but for cutting down tyres if you mix up some hot water with
    some - I have no idea what you guys call it, but the shit you'd add into the sink if you were
    washing some...

    They're Animal MTT tyres. Way grippier than I thought they would be, plus they've got a super
    solid casing too. I seem to remember they weigh more than the Conti Danny Mac tyres.

Saw your grip post on uk. I had the half nelson race face grips they are ok but open end.
The new Gwin grips are super thin and closed end with alloy cap covered in plastic, single collar. I would recommend these minus the bullshit pricing. 45 CAD

I have used those long thin grips from toyo about 10 years ago only slide on rubber grip i would use.

I now use racquet ball tape but you might rip this stuff with all your bmx shenanigans. I have small hands so only use thin grips.

Something in common, interesting
