    The crown race should be a super tight fit on there. If you're having to use teflon tape then
    that's really not ideal.If you meant you hadn't tried it with grease on the stem bolts then
    give that a go...

    Possibly worth whipping the bars out of your stem, cleaning up the bar clamp area, making sure
    there are no sharp edges then throwing it all back together and seeing if that helps. Make sure
    you greas...

    Echo TR disc brakes will definitely not make you think that Echo parts are good these days too,
    unless you're a fan of frequent bleeding so you can top-up all the fluid haemorrhaging out of
    it.In case...

    A 150x30 or 150x35 would make that bike feel less like absolute shit. You'll lose 14mm off the
    reach (and admittedly about 5-7mm from your bar height) so it'll make it feel less like you're
    stretched ...

    I'm as serious as cancer.

    I was so scared that Agrade's devastating mountain bike skills would emasculate me to the point
    I'd need to commit harakiri that I couldn't even face meeting him despite travelling half-way
    around the...

    How old is your front hub, out of interest? The reason I ask is that - somehow - the face of
    the disc mount on my front hub isn't flat, so when you tighten the rotor onto it it naturally
    fucks with th...

    You can get different thickness shims though - Hope do them in 4 different sizes for their IS
    calipers. You only need 1.5mm of spacers in there and it looks like you've got one of the
    chunkier spacers...

  • Posted in thread: This ones real so believe the hype on 05-08-2015 at 04:24 PM
    It looks like your caliper is running pretty high on the rotor (judging from the
    shiny/non-shiny areas on the braking surface) so using a thinner/no spacer under the caliper
    might be a good idea to ge...

    Yeah, thanks to Angie and the good company Carbon Media Group behind her, WE, the big family of
    Observed Trails, no longer have to feel separation anxiety and can check out popular threads
    again!Obser...

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
