    Sweet view Jhan! Is that near Christchurch or have you gone off on some travels again?

    Sunset background one looks really good! Way better than the usual standard of randomers
    stopping to grab a photo.

    It's just their beast heat treatment process. It makes them more resistant to stretching, so in
    turn they retain their strength for longer.

    Z510 HX or Z610 HX are the ones to go for. A bit more expensive than the regular Z510 or K710
    chains, but way better. All about that HX shit.

    If you get the main arm of the tensioner up nearer the stay, you'll get more tension in it

    spring hating li...

    Yeah, I think we ran out of them before we switched to the blue framekits, and we've even sold
    out of those now so that should give you an idea of time-frames.

    Inspired sold out of them a while back so I think you'll struggle to get hold of one anywhere.

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
